downloaded this on a whim and I am so happy I did... not finished yet, but the narrator is fantastic and the story line is just the right mix of serious (and bloody) action and comedic relief. download... you will not be disappointed!
Hounded is an excellent fantasy story woven in the modern world. The writing is visual and there are many memorable characters. The narrators voice was a perfect fit for the character. His sometimes stumbling accents, when reading other characters, made it more enjoyable. The occasional campy humor and impossible situations added to it too.
Being a Harry Dresden fan I really enjoyed "Hounded" and found the similarities and differences in the worlds of these two series to be interesting. I love the characters, especially that of Oberon which had me chuckling aloud every now and then. Like others have commented, my only reservation was that I wish the book had been longer because it's one of those where you're not ready for it to end. I'm off to get the next in the series and will hope to see more.
I bought this based on the reviews, and am 3/4 through it. Pity it's so short.
Others have it right: if you liked Dresden, you'll really like this as well. The author is clever and the narrator is great.
For the record, I've been an Audible member for around 14 years, and probably have 250 unabridged titles in my library, around 200 of which I have "read."
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
I have been reading some serious fantasy for a while now (Jordan, Martin, Sanderson) and then accidently listened to a really bad one (Luck in the Shadows). Then I found Hounded. I have not laughed out load listening to a story in long time. Thoroughly enjoyable, witty and totally different from my usual meals. If you want a really nice desert, I recommend Hounded.
Truly entertaining and wonderfully narrated. I seriously laughed out loud several times, drawing stares from the customers at work.
This book was just great. Great story, great characters, great narration. Another reviewer compared it to the Dresden files, which is a good comparison. I am really looking forward to the next book in the series.
A fun, easy read. Atticus is a great fellow to follow and he is surrounded by amusing characters. You won't find any deep meanings in the text, but if you want a fun urban fantasy you won't be disappointed by this book.
If you enjoy Jim Butcher's Harry Dresden novels, you will enjoy this book.
