It had great ptoential and was all around a solid book
The dog was awsome
When the dog got poodles and said
The final battle was great till the simple kill.
No, I rarely listen to books more than once.
It seemed a natural conclusion to the story. Nothing earth-shattering. More like the end of an episode if this were a tv show.
This is a fun read, good for a road trip when you don't want anything heavy to think about or pay attention to. The characters are entertaining, if a bit contrived. The narrator does a decent job of differentiating voices, and I swear Oberon is by far the best.
The narrator was well chosen. Great plot. Looking forward to the next book.
Oberon. Captivated me and keptme laughing.
I would listen to Hounded again, to catch the parts I laughed through.
Atticus would be my favorite character, whilst Oberon is my Husband's.
Atticus, being 2,100 years old, doesn't act his age, but rather like a college kid.
Oberon, being Atticus' pet Irish Wolfhound, can talk to Atticus through a mental link, with quick wit and original jokes.
No, but it is on my list of things to get!
Many, many references in this series like, Star Trek, Twilight, Hitchhiker's Guide, and more. And cussing.
Fun story with a great narrator!! I very much enjoyed the whole serious. Definitely recommend.
Really enjoyed the store.
Druid, a survivor.
Short and sweet but still captivating. Great characters which are memorable, especially the Irish Wolfhound.
No. But after I was done with hounded the next narrated book sounded dead and boring! So he is one of the best I've listened to so far.
Yes, couldn't stop.
Atticus is a wonderful character - very human and paranormal at the same time. The blending of all the different mythological gods and creatures could have been overwhelming, but the author (and the narrator) made it easy to follow the entities and personalities.
And then there is the dog Oberon who is so wonderfully canine. The relationship between Atticus and Oberon is a special spice in this mixture. It is both touching and LOL funny. I read/listen to a fair amount of fantasy and paranormal stories, but few of them have a druid as a major character. I enjoyed the descriptions of the art/religion/life of a druid in Hearne's world.
While I think I would have enjoyed the book in any format, Luke Daniels made the book absolutely delightful! I didn't have to think about the pronunciation (or spelling) of all those weird names and places. Each character's voice is so distinctive that it is easy to keep up with the individuals. He varies the pacing and the tone of the narrative so naturally that I never noticed it - until I decided to write this review.
The story line does contain a fair amount of violence, but it is more of the comic book type (in the nicest possible sense). It isn't the gruesome stuff that lingers in your mind for hours. There is less sex than one might expect, and the author spares us the steamy graphic descriptions while getting the message delivered. There is plenty of profanity, and it is used in keeping with the characters' personalities so it doesn't get in the way of the plot.
Between the author and the narrator, I feel like I have a new friend riding to work with me. I am now on my 3rd book in this series
I enjoyed the story and performance, but I sure felt like I was listening to a Harry Dresden book with a druid in place of a wizard. A big dog companion? An apprentice eventually? The fae? and it goes on. I can't say it was a knock off, but it sure was close.
That aside I did enjoy the way the story played out and the characters. The narrator was engaging and fun.
An exciting and funny trip into the modern day lives of the supernatural community. This recording had me on the edge of my seat at times and laughing out loud at the most unexpected places.
I loved the relationship between Atticus and his trusted friend Oberon. I have an Oberon type friend at home and the portrayal of his personality was heartwarming and funny. I am convinced that I now live with a
After 21 centuries, this modern day Druid has finally gone to the dogs...
LOVED IT!!! I am a huge fan of the Harry Dresden books and this had the same mix of irreverence, humor, suspense and characters that are irresistable! I just downloaded the next 2 books and can't wait for my Monday commute so I can find out what Atticus and Oberon get into next!
It was a good mix of old world (Druid...some history) with new world (modern language & refrences). There was good humour & story was well written, with a few suprises and twists. Characters were easy to relate to & moderatly developed. Just found the story a little simple...not very complicated. If you are interested in a light listen - this is an amusing choice.
Great character differences.
There is potential for one...but mostly the story came to a comlplete conclusion
A good light listen that does not require a huge time comitment.
