So, I'm blind- just fair warning that this book kind of ticked me off as a blind person.
It was sufficently good, if not compelling, except for the blindness thing. You may take nothing else away from this review, but I want you to take this: never take the arm of a blind person. Never. I am in no way kidding.
So my problem is not that this book isn't an interesting idea, it's that it's badly researched. I may be able to suspend disbelief enough to accept ghosts, witches, demons, and magic, but not enough to think a guy, no matter how motivated, adjusts to that level of becoming blind in a year. And again, he lets people drag him around by the arm. Bad hero. Bad.
If you aren't blind or good friends with a blind person, it's an all right story with good narration, but it has a pretty open ending. It does resolve some things, but leaves the hero in a very sticky situation. Hopefully in the sequel the hero will tell people that the right way to lead a blind person is to offer him your arm.
I haven't read the print version so cannot say.
Everything, catches you from the begining.
Great narration! Helped me form the images in my head quite nicely with out distracting me at all! Quite lovely:)
Yes, but if I put that info in here..... Would be a spoiler
Could not stop listening. I had to know what came next. Lovely Urban Fantasy! Intriguing, Scary, not your run of the mill. Joseph Nassie is a very good author, loved his Templar Chronicles. Waiting for thoes to make it to Audible!! Anthony Bowden brings to life the atmosphere and world Joseph Nassie created seamlessly, quite enjoyable. This book isn't going to change your life, but is a wonderful break from reality!
Yes, I would listen again, in fact I have listened to it a couple of times now. I enjoy the darkness, the humor, and the characters. .
I especially like Jeremiah Hunt. I like his attitude and how he changes so subtly through the story. His sarcastic view of life is similar to mine.
I am not sure... When I read I can hear hte characters in the voice I imaigne them to have, and I am not sure I would have given people the voices he gave, yet I enjoyed the narrative immensely and I didn't dislike any of the voices or styles he choice.
I can't wait to read the second book of the series
Yes I would. The writing style is similar to my favourite book series - The Dresden Files
The Dresden Files series. The main protagonist has strong similarities to Harry Dresden.
Just really enjoyed the book right from the start
Say something about yourself!
The story is very captivating, I was interested right away. The writer did a great job keeping the energy up and pacing out events. The characters are strong so I was able to connect easily with Jeremiah and maintain empathy throughout.
I'm not sure, maybe The Iron Druid Chronicles.
All voices were done well and the energy was maintained throughout.
This is a story about a man who is tricked into giving up his sight in order to find his missing daughter. At first he believes himself to be blind but very soon realizes that he can still see just not in the traditional way - now he is able to see ghosts in their natural environment, he even makes friends with a couple and though they can't talk to him, they are dedicated to helping him find the one thing that matters to him most, his lost daughter.
This is a recommend for sure, it's worth the credit.
I put off buying the first book for along time because the small preview really didn't do much for me but once I started, there was no way I could stop. Joseph Nassise's writing style, very clean & crisp; much like Jonathan Maberry. Anthony Bowden did a super job of narrating & best of all didn't make me cringe when he narrated female characters.
I recommend the Hunt Chronicle's wholeheartedly, credit well spent!
I was looking for something different in the "magic" genre and this is it. The narrator was great and the story was very compelling. I am anxiously waiting to hear the next book
Probably not. It's not the worst of the supernatural fiction out there, but it's not near the top either.
Sufficient. Average. Acceptable.
Yes, I could see it being a tv series. No idea who'd play Jeremiah. There really isn't enough detail in the book to get a feel for what he'd look like.
This book tries very hard to mine the vein of writing that gave up Harry Dresden, Felix Castor, and Joh Taylor. But it misses. The characters are very one dimensional, the plot pretty thin and the conclusion very predictable. The narrator does the best he can, trying to breathe some life and humor into the story, but it still falls flat.
Engrossing, fast-paced, imaginative!
When he finds out about his daughter.
I have not, but I liked his interpretation of the character!
To see where no man has seen before...just kidding. How about Blinded by the Sight?
Worth the read, interesting world. Author puts you right in the moment! I will be reading everything else Nassise writes.
