Yes. This is a fresh voice. I love the interpretation of the Gods and Druids.
Oberon of course!
I would recommend this audiobook to a friend that was perhaps an adept reader, as there are many different characters and strange names that take some getting used to. An interest in mythology would certainly help.
I liked the scene where Atticus accepts an apprentice, against his better judgement. I also liked Oberon, the dog, in general.
There were times when the story seemed stilted, and dragged just a bit. I couldn't tell if it was the narrator, unsure of the intonation/inflection needed at that point, or if the author had gotten bogged down on details we didn't really need to move the story forward. I am planning on reading/listening to the next book in the series, but I have a feeling this is one novel I'd prefer to read from now on, rather than listen to.
I love to read and since 2011 I have been mostly listening to audiobooks because oftentimes there is nothing like a good narrator.
Yes. I reread a lot of my books and this is one I thoroughly enjoyed so I will most definitely be listening to it again in the future.
The Redemption of Althalus by David Eddings I think it was. Althalus was a rogue where Atticus clearly has much more honor, but the storytelling seems similar to me. It is not exactly fast paced, flying at breakneck speed where you need to find out what happens next, but it moves along very, very well and it has a lot of humor which I find lacking in Fantasy these days. The humor does not take away from the aura of mystery and danger, especially with a Pantheon of Gods involved, but it is very refreshing. The Redemption of Althalus was a lot like that.
All of the scenes where Atticus was interacting will a God I think. Unfortunately I can't name just one. Perhaps the one where Briet (sp?) comes to talk to Atticus after he kills Bris. That one was oddly uneventful but quite enjoyable nonetheless.
Most definitely, yes.
I highly recommend the book. The story is top notch and the Narrator is a cut above. Everything involving this book is well done. I downloaded Hexxed, Book 2 this morning and I hope it is more of the same!
Story too short
The dialogue with Oberon is fantastic and hilarious. I had to hit rewind numerous times from laughing so hard.
Oberon. The narrator did a perfect job on the voice.
A tale 2,000 years in the making.
It does remind you of the Dresden Files only in the fact that it is a lone male fantasy character living in modern times. The characters and plot are completely original and the narrator does an excellent job on all the accents, in particular giving new life to the dog dialect.
I never read the print version.
No this was my first
I laughed a lot!
It was by a total accident that I happened upon this one and it was one of the best accidents ever! I have to say this is one of the best books I have ever listened to!
Luke Daniels does a terrific job as the narrator. Love him. Many times I found myself laughing out loud! I give it 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!
Oberon. He reminds me of my dogs. They like apple chicken sausages too.
It makes it difficult to drive when laughing as hard as I was. Great listen.
On the top
I love it when Oberon talks...he makes me laugh out loud.
Yes! I drive an hour to and from work. I don't want the drive to end :)
I would listen to the other 2 book in the series -Hexed and Hammered. They are just as good, if not better, than Hounded.
I'm 40 something female and like to escape into a book. I listen in the car and like a story that either business related or pure escapism.
Fun, Unexpected, mesmerising
The neighbour being willing to bury the dead guy.
Oberon, is a very amusing character.
Where legends come to life
I am a hopeless bibliophile and audiobooks are perfect for me. I get to read and keep my hands free. Perfect for a busy mom/ nurse.
Very interesting look at what it would be like to be a long-lived, modern day Druid
And the day to day challenges
The dog was very funny. I didn't especially care for the voice the narrator gave him
Because his comments were wittier than the voice made them sound.
Definately would have given the dog a witty, paeudo-lecherous undertone, as befitting a good side kick
I chuckled in several spots. I enjoyed the Druids subtle ability to see the funny side of combining the ancient and modern day
The characters Mr. Hearne have in this story are unique and refreshing.
Oberon. Read the book and he'll be your favorite, too
The voice of Oberon and the tone of Atticus are spot on.
The last line.
