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
Generic story. Just skip to the end. Characters don't matter at all. The emotional parts are forced and fake. The reader is ok except during the action sequences and then he's cringeworthy.
When I first came across Eyes to see on the 2 for 1 deal, I didn't know what to expect. I get it and start listening to it the next day at work and instantly started getting hooked.
DH Greg fffdg hdgjhffshk gsfbkgss the kids to bed so I can get some rest and
i thoroughly enjoyed the book, however there were a few things that stood out. the nation character being blind only affects him when it fits the plot and makes me question why he was made to be blind to begin with. other than that and the occasional deus ex, this is a great book. i definitely recommend it to anyone that is a gan of the supernatural and paranormal.
