This is long book. Its starts off pretty slow and you get to learn a lot of details about the characters lives long before any action begins. He does a great job of slowly interweaving their lives that you almost wonder if their ever going to meet. He keeps the story line a mystery till about the end. Once you get whats going on your left wanting to know more about the back story the "before times" times. The book is a bit moody and somewhat sad. If your looking for a book that lighthearted and fun (my typical types of books) this wont be that type of read.
No. It was a very long book. Story was engrossing at times but not enough to re-read.
Yes, U would try another. This is his first book, it will be interesting to see how his writing matures.
He did a great performance as a cat. I also enjoyed his performan of the lead 3 characters, Marc, Harper, and Catherine.
No. Much to long to read in one sitting. It took me three days to complete the book.
This book was a very mixed experience. The characters were well-written and unforgettable; very endearing. The mystery story is intriguing. It was the fantasy part of the story that seemed to be a mishmash of fantasy and multiple religions lumped together. The story probably could have been better without the fantasy element. I also was not fond of the ending; it was not satisfying to me at all.
I really wanted to get into this book. The publishers summary and other feedback drew me to this story. The summary sounds interesting for the genre, well known reader, interesting locations, buildings, history, detectives, and the possibility of fairy tale underworld.
I have listened to many other books narrated by Jonathan Davis, and did a fine job and trying to bring this story to life.
The story leaves me wanting more than what I have found included with in the book. I'm currently about 1/3 the way through the book and the story has not hooked me yet. I see where the story is going, I'm not sure what the end looks yet, and I'm not sure that I will ever know. At this point I have not been drawn into caring about the characters enough to care how to see how the story will unfold. The descriptions of the historic and beautiful locations have not generated the imagery that I had hoped to draw me into the location and time of the story. Fortunately looking at images of the cities and buildings and reading about their history online can do the job where the author fell short for me.
So for now, I've read a few more reviews and strongly considering skipping the remaining portion of the book and leave the end a mystery.
No I would not I have already wasted enough of my time
The lack of depth of the characters and the amature way the storie flowed
Decent, acceptable, Good enough for government work
It inspired me to avoid this author, and question how he even got a book deal.
Dont waste your time. The Idea for the story is a good one almost original but its execution and presentation are awful. The author spends too much time on details of mundane life and does a poor job explaning the more complex happenings in the book leaving the reader to guess at what is going on or how the characters got from point a to point B.
I tried to listen to this but I kept falling asleep. Nothing happens to capture my interest. I definitely wasted my money on this one. The concept interested me but it did not deliver.
