I'm a hardcore reader and art student. ;)
This audiobook ranks in the higher middle. I still have some audiobook to listen to but when I get finished with my other audiobooks, the ranking GRB might change.
I might compared it to some of Stephen King's supernatural works.
No, I haven't listened to any of his other works.
When Val attacks Carl for revenge for her father.
I'm going to get the second and third book now!!
I collect spores, molds, and fungus.
Really very boring. Didn't finish it. I liked the zombie series he did so I thought I'd try other books by this author... Bad idea. Waste of a credit.
I really enjoy this author but this book is out there. While I can never put down other books I cannot get into this and I can get thru almost anything
Yes. The story is different and fresh. Not at all what I expected. A happy surprise.
Excellent. He does a great job of individualizing each character.
Held my interest from first word to last. Couldn't listen fast enough.
Have the entire trilogy now, listening to number 3.
I have a long drive to work and audible makes it so much more bearable
Great book, love the characters, love the story, love the whole trilogy.
I have a long daily commute and Audible has been a God send. I accidently came across Maberry's books and I am hooked! I really enjoyed this trilogy. All 3 of the books are great and I have to say I was disappointed when I heard "Audible hopes you have enjoyed......." on Bad Moon Rising. Maberry's Joe Ledger series is great too! Sadly I have listened to everything of his that Audible has and now have to wait for the next one.
Tell us about yourself!
story kept you interested, all 3 books in this series are great, coming from a devoted
SKING fan, that is saying somthing.
Some characters he did not hit the mark, but others were perfect
LISTEN TO THEM ALL, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPOINTED
I love to read almost anything but romace. Sci-fi is usually at the top of my list followed by mysteries.
This was the first book I read by Jonathan Mayberry and I thoroughly enjoyed it. This book kept me entertained and wanting more. I often found myself sitting in my drive way or the parking lot at work just to listen to more. The character development was wonderful. I easily feel in love with some characters and absolutely hated others. This book ends with you wanting more and asking lot of questions, so I can understand why some people were a little frustrated by that. Fortunately for me, I did not start the series until all three had been released so I was able to listen to all three right away. I did finish this series and thought it was great. I will read more by Mayberry.
I thought the narrator did a fantastic job.
I'm what some folks call, "extremely average."
Jonathan Maberry is one of my favorite authors. GRB was part creepy classic, complete with dark woods and shadowy cornfields, and part thriller with bad guys and guns - but it was just too dang long. There is a terrific build up to the action-packed showdown, where all factions in the story collide, but at that point it's too prolonged and the momentum is lost. I'm hesitant to finish the series -I really want to know what happens, but I'm afraid it might take to much time.
Audible has opened up a whole new world of reading that I could not make work in the traditional page turning world. I am on a mission to listen to a wide variety of adventures, mysteries, thrillers, classics, etc. Thank you Audible!
This trilogy has won me over and I will be reading a lot more of Jonathan Maberry's writing. He does an amazing job of developing characters that you can't help but love, hate, respect, etc. His writing flows with easy and he kept me enthralled from cover to cover during each of the Pine Deep books. I have read a fair amount of books with aspects of the supernatural, monsters, apocalypse, bad humans, etc., and in my opinion this trilogy weaves a story that incorporates all of these themes and more creating a unique and entertaining journey.
Mr. Maberry is one of the few authors who rewards people who read his books in the correct order by not wasting the first few chapters recapping what has happened in the previous books. In fact he writes this triligy as one seamless book that opens a portal into suspense, adventure and the unknown. Having read many books from these genres I was pleasantly surprised by how good the twists and turns were. I spent a many a night thinking I would just listen to one more chapter and then the next thing I know it would nearly be morning.
Be warned this trilogy is highly addictive and you may want to seriously consider buying all three books at the same time because you are not going to want to have a delay in the action. Hang on and enjoy!
Yep, it starts out a bit slow, but then it picks up . . . then it's like riding a rollercoaster through the end of not only this book but also the two that follow. The Pine Deep Trilogy is truly a remarkable story, in that it deals with the paranormal, but in precisely the manner that the paranormal would be dealt with if it happened in the life of any normal real-life person. There is no blanket assumption that everyone will just take you at your word when you say you've seen a (whatever) and there are the resulting 'inconveniences' when you find that you must go on to solve a huge problem with only a small core of believers.
The book is as well written as you would expect from a man who teaches writing, and I was constantly impressed by the power of description that Jonathan Maberry brings to bear in even the simplest situations, a mere three or four words that complete the scene and leave you in no doubt as to the emotions, etc. of the characters involved: a gesture, a sigh, something that the average writer would not even think of adding - makes all the difference!
Read this book - then read the other two in the trilogy. It is time well spent!
