Epic Fantasy buff who appreciates humor in the story line. Interested in writing. Appreciates a good masculine story line. Also interested in Health and self-help business skills.
This book was not the same old TV dinner tale where it seems like someone switched covers and character names to a worn out story line. The Iron Druid and Indian Reservation setting made for an easily identifiable situation with its own combination of dangers. The Oberlin commentary continues to provide pure heart feeling and comedy just when things get dark. One laughs from the well timed joke as much from the humor as a need to relieve one's own story induced tension.
This compares well to the Dresden Files books by Jim Butcher.
During the betrayal there was a moment when light was dark and wrong did right. It was like someone asking you if you met Hitler as a baby, would you be able to kill it knowing that it had not done any wrong yet.
I think the humor and the fact that it never got boring. Just a really fun book.
Chronicals of Oberon and his pet Druid.
extremely similar in tone to the Dresden books, but not as melancholy.
Yes, most audio editions are.
Atticus is decent, Leif Helgarson and the Morrigan are tied for a close second. My least favorite is Oberon with his constant pop-culture and movie references, followed by the poorly written Granuaile who keeps saying "OMG sooo cool".
Well read, good characterization and very believable performances. He has become the voices I associate with the characters.
A lot of the humour wasn't actually funny. It felt very forced. Like the author was a college kid desperately trying to insist that he too understood pop culture references. The story was at its best when it wasn't trying to be funny or trying so desperately to play up its audience with wink-wink-nudge-nudge references.
Please oh please cut down on the pop culture references. Or at least make them more generic. While I thought the references to Star Trek as a religion were clever, the constant pop culture quotes, even when the main characters are severely injured, is jarring and distracting. Let a heavy situation be a heavy situation; I don't need characters making light when they have no reason to do so. It feels patronizing when it happens. You don't need to draw me in with references of the day.
I listen to approximately 25 hours per week and have downloaded over 400 books on Audible. Mostly I like mysteries, fantasy and scifi.
Book 3 missed the mark for me but Book 4 in the Iron Druid Chronicles is back to good form. There's a lot of fun in this book!
Very amusing storyline centered around Atticus O'Sullivan, the last remaining Druid, who is very very old, and finds himself settled down in the American Southwest, playing the role of a young dude and proprietor of a local bookstore and herbal tea bar. With that backdrop, Atticus finds himself cavorting with and battling characters from literally every imaginable realm of folklore ever passed on. Very unique stuff, delightful read.
One of the best!
Following all of the characters and love Luke Daniels.
Cannot wait for the next book!
Feeding five horses in the morning, I'm listening to my audiobooks. On the tractor dispensing you know what I'm listening to my audio book. Daily brushing of each horse the audio book is running. Only time I shut it off is when I'm walking with the dogs or horses in the woods.
Quick witted characters in his books good laugh. The dog just tears me up with his dog like comments, I can see my own dogs saying the same things, Great story to follow.
The narrator is amazing. He makes each character come alive and the word pictures are just perfect. I love Oberon! Cannot wait for the next adventure!
All of them - they are all equally wonderful. You must read them in order or you will miss the story.
Love sci-fi books, romace books. I love to get lost into a good book.
I'm so happy I bought these books. They did not let me down.
LOVE THE DOG OBERON
