Just looking for an enjoyable story! Books are my passion.
I would definitely recommend this book as it caught my interest and I couldn't stop listening.
Couldn't put it down.
Too many to describe.
His use of different voices for each character.
The decriptions of the aftermath of the nuclear war.
I liked the fact that Audible is now labelling the different parts, i.e., part 1 and part 2. I wish you did this in all your books.
YES! I WOULD RECOMMEND THIS AUDIOBOOK TO ANY AND EVERYONE WHO HAS EVER THOUGHT ABOUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF NUCLEAR WARFARE WAS TO EVER REALLY HAPPEN... WITH ALL SCIENCE FICTION ASIDE, THIS WAS AN AMAZING BOOK A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN I READ IT.... THE AUDIOBOOK MADE MY COMMUTES TO WORK A BLAST...! THE HARDEST PART WAS TURNING IT OFF...!
Chapter after chapter of interesting character development.
It is amazing that Tom Stecshulte was able to perform so many different characters and personalities. Most of them will remain with me for some time.
While this book is no "tear jerker" , it is so well done that I cried at one point, laughed at others, felt joy, and fear.
This is the highest rating that I have ever given and Audible book.
rocked out on this one
unfolded like a movie...it was a full on experience. great story cool imagery fascinating colorful characters...you could smell them...lol
absolutely loved this book from start to finish, the characters were all believable.
Robert McCammon is a wonderful author and I highly recommend this audiook.
Tom Stechschulte was really easy to listen to and kept the listener rivited - will be keeping an eye out for other audio books narrated by him.
Swan Song was and interesting "post-apocalyptic" story as I have not read one before and have avoided them in the past ... I got a bit confused with the whole "Friend" character and I thought it was overly long. I agree with another reviewer that the story is not too dated given it was written in 1987.
Still I persisted and found it enjoyable but the problem for me is that I am 3 out 4 into the Mathew Corbett series which I think are just "Ripping Yarns" and absolutely adore them.
So this earlier work I found dragged a little.
I enjoyed the linking of the 3 sometime 4 separate adventures of the different characters and thought the narration was well done. I think Robert McCammon's characters are always very interesting.
I dont have a clue
poorly written characters
No narrator could improve this book
Stay away, far away, from this book
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys the post apocalyptic genre and the classic God vs Satan or Good vs Evil.
My favorite character was Sister because I felt I could relate with her most. She had grit and a drive that gave her the ability to keep moving forward no matter the odds. Her past was a mystery and how she became the way she is wasn't completely known, even at the end.
The narrator is amazing! He brings the characters to life and makes each of them distinct.
There were so many memorable characters. Freddy Kempka, Lord Alvin, Roland Croninger....these were some of the most memorable because they were so demented, powerful, and interesting.
It started off rather slow and just odd, but after getting past Part I, it really started to get good and I just couldn't stop listening.
