Once I got past the fact that this story really isn't a PI Detective story, I really enjoyed it. It's a bit of a thriller fantasy.
New Twists on History and as Well Read as it was Written!
Everything. Well done!
I loved it. The world created in this book is familiar and foreign to our world. You'll need to give this book a few short chapters to set up this world for you but in that time you'll be hooked. The narrator is top notch and pores life into each character.
If you love fast paced action this book has it in spades! The story pulls no punches either. Very well written with diverse characters that you can't help but pull for. Oh, and they completely stomp the crap out of some bad guys.
At 1st I thought I'd be an ok book but it literally had me wanting to hear more & more. I had to know what was going to happen next. I'd be sitting in my car listening to it after I'd just gotten home with car in garage it's freezing outside but I couldn't turn it off right away to go get into warm house. Then I ended up listening to the book rather than watching anything else. Love finding a story line that isn't so predictable I get board with it after 1st chapter. This one is well worth your time & money!!
I wish there was more. Only problem I have with Larry is that he spends to much time not writing more. Someone tie that guy to a desk and don't let him out until there is a new book every month.
A surprisingly enjoyable book, despite hiring someone who has clearly never read the book to design the cover art for it. Ignore it completely and don't let it turn you off to it.
The only"real" complaint I have is that (while the performance overall was pretty great) I felt like too many characters were spoken with way too slow and drawn out speech. It takes Harkness about 5 real-life minutes to say a 5 word sentence in the book.
Overall I was surprised at how good it was and finally figured out why it kept making its way into my suggested books category.
