Correia has crafted an entirely compelling and believable alternate world that's complex, captivating and fun. Packed with almost-the-same world history, over-the-top action, likeable characters and surprises, this book is an immediate favorite.
Pinchot performs the story perfectly, taking the listener on this wild ride with an adept skill at portraying the many diverse characters. I was expecting a good performance, what I got was far better.
Overall, I give it two thumbs up in every respect - if I had more than two thumbs, I'd rate it even higher (assuming I was still human and able to operate my iPhone).
It was a good book with a very creative idea of magic. I like the way it was done in the book. It is a bit of a dark book with some death, but not too much to make it sad. I quite liked it.
The story was fun. Characters fantastic, but Pinchot makes this a story !!! Pure entertainment
His ability to voice the characters and make them come alive is incredible. I hope he does more books in the future.
I bring screaming to the children.
A fast paced thrill ride. A popcorn movie in a book, expertly narrated, too much fun to put down. Picked up the next in the series before this was half over. Can't wait to hear what's next
Correia is an outstanding story writer and the reading by Pinchot is amazing! The characters have depth and the whole concept is pursuasively imagined. I will start volume 2 immediately.
I really liked it characters interesting and plot moved along nicely if you like sci fi it will be a good fit for uou
I'm not sure the person who wrote the blurb actually read the book, because it describes such a small part of the world created here. Do yourself a favor, trust the people who love it and take the plunge!
Audible has been incessantly recommending this book, and I'm glad I gave in! The story's interesting, the world's great, and the narrator... amazing.
YES!!! And I never listen to books more than once! But this book was so much fun to listen to and I actually can't wait until our next road trip vacation so I can listen to it with my husband!
Its so hard to choose because there are so many great characters. And they all have such different backgrounds and talents that it is too difficult to compare.
Bronson Pinchot is THE BEST NARRATOR EVER! I was shocked when I saw his name as the narrator because I remember him from years ago as the sitcom character Balki, and I had no idea that he did audio book narration. I was so amazed at how talented he was as a narrator....different voices and accents for each of the characters....and he made the whole story come to life. I absolutely love this book, but I don't think I would have loved it nearly as much if I had read it instead of listening to it.
GREAT, AWESOME, FUN, AMAZING STORY!!! Larry Correia is a very talented author who is creative and clever! I'm sure its a great read, but take my advice and listen to it narrated by Bronson Pinchot, its worth it! And another BIG PLUS is that there are TWO MORE books in the Grimnoir Chronicles!!!
