A fantastic epic in a great cinematic style Carrion Comfort has remained one of my favorite novels for years. The performance of the two readers was really great especially the Fuller segments.
This may be my single greatest audiobook experience. While very long (perhaps average for ASOIAF fans) Carrion Comfort moves at a brisk pace. It is truly epic horror that spans decades and hosts numerous characters you will root for as well as those you will detest. The voice acting (a more apt phrase than narration in this instance) is truly superb. I cannot recommend more highly.
the female narrator did an excellent job. the male narrator did great with voiced. but when reading parts that were meant to be action and more intense, he just read the way he read the rest of the book. and it's really really long:-) I fell asleep listening for eight hours and I don't think I missed much.
Fun, unbelievably imaginative for its time and fun. Great since of adventure if not a wee bit long. For its length though the pacing is really good and the characters are very entertaining.
You can really get your listening value from this one. loved it all! 5 stars from me., and looking forward to reading another.
A fascinating concept with an incredible array of really good characters and Bo does this story pick you up and move.
Melanie is an old broad you will learn to both admire for her crazy like. Fox, daring without caring and I don't think I've ever met someone as self centered and delay duded in such a crazy, scarey and brutal way you can't help but both marvel and laugh. She is beyond amusing. So many characters who have a depth , if so someone told me I'd know this much about so many I would have said no thanks, but they come upon you or you them for a meaningful and interesting purpose...not hard to manage at all.
Great performances! I heard Melanie and the others this way in my head when I. Read the print version ages ago!
Sweeping beyond what you thought possible...riveting and great fun with characters you hate to love cause they are just that badly good.
Absolutely, besides the length, of course. The narration was splendidly delivered, and having the woman onboard for the POV chapters made this already engrossing story even harder to put down.
It's almost nothing like Stephen King's IT in plot, but the feel of the story is very similar.
Melanie, by Laural Merlington was superb.
Yes i have it keep me gusseing to the end
The ending was so well done
dont want to give it away
Audible is better than TV
I will, but I doubt that I will listen to anything more than parts of the book due to its length.
This question always messes me up as I think it will give away the game. There are better moments than this, but the opening is pretty good.
The first grand fight.
Who is in control.
I have seen reviews calling this a vampire book. It has nothing to due with vampires. It is about absolute power and control, while attempting to defeat those with that power and control.
This is my first experience with them so I would have to say yes, I would try another.
I didn't care much for it. It's too clean. I get the feeling that none of these characters sleep well at night. Although it's not really brought out in the ending like that.
The performers did a good job with the reading. I didn't get the seperation that you often hear when a book is read. I really like it when that's cohesive. I think it helps to build the character in a multi-dementional way.
I don't think so. I think if you tried to build on it now it would just feel drawn out. That's part of the problem with loose ends. When you tie them all up neat with a bow, you often cut yourself off from moving it forward.
I liked the characters. They felt true to the story and to each other. I liked that the romantic interest didn't jump right into love. These characters fit each other. Which can be very hard for even the most seasoned of writers. I would like to add as a side note from a personal perspective. Just in case Mr. Simmons should ever read this. You're never going to please every reader. At the end of the day if you are happy with it and you feel that you've done your story justice then you should be happy. Take the critisism as what it is. A learning tool and use it on the next story.
