I didn't read the print version but the reader really brought the characters to life in a way I think would have been missed in the print version. I also appreciated the pronunciation of many names and places that would have been difficult to read.
I love all the characters but Oberon is by far my favorite.
I laughed out loud quite a bit during the whole series.
I came late to this series and was so addicted I listened to one right after the other. I can't wait for June to hear the next one. I highly recommned this series.
This is a great adventure. I love this series
I love the characters. You actually have a real affinity for them The dialog is always intriguing. Oberon the dog is hysterical Love him The whole series is just very clever.
There is nothing to complain about with this series. Each book is fun, fast paced, and engaging. The lore is fascinating, and the action and drama are constant. If you are awesome, you will love this series.
The Narrator Luke Daniels is great and story line is easy to follow.
Oberon - great character. Of course I am a dog lover so that was a given.
Oberon..he does a wonderful job.
No...it is fiction...I laughed a lot.
I am ready to ready the next book when it comes out in June?
Absolutely. Books 1 and 2 introduce the characters. Book 3 gives us the match to the fuse. Book 4 sets the stage. Book 5 is where the overall story arc really starts. I think that the books from 5 through the end will form one coherent narrative to take us to the end.
Ummm ... that thing I wanted to have happen, that almost *had* to happen finally happened.
Also the fleshing out of Tir Na Nogth was nice - getting a feel of the place and the inhabitants gave it depth.
As usual, Luke Daniel's does a magnificent job.
See liked best #1.
Still going strong, though as with the last couple of books, a little less Oberon would be appreciated. Moving from loyal hound to sausage snarfing Yoda has been a little jarring.
I don't usually listen to fiction more than one, so doubtful
Inflection, pacing, character vocalization, all spot on...
Would, but never can...
There are not many books I can read twice. THIS series is so wonderful that I can't stop listening to it. It makes me LOL, hold my breath and sad when the story is over. I've already marked on my calendar when the next book is scheduled to be released. I purchased the first 2 books in the series when Audible had a 2 for 1 deal (Thanks Audible) and I have fallen in love with the characters. This is a fun book to read and the narrator is AMAZING! I now have to find other books he has read.
I highly recommend this series! I can't say enough about how great it is!! Keep them coming Mr. Hearne (make sure to check out his website).
I absolutely love Kevin Hearne's style of writing his series of Iron Druid Chronicles. They are laced with lots of humor that is current as well as "aged," yet the humor doesn't distract from the stories.
When you couple Luke Daniels as the narrator with Hearne's style, it's a perfect match. His voice impressions of each character adds to the humor and it's hard to imagine an Iron Druid story without Luke Daniels as the narrator. Luke Daniels is to Kevin Hearne as George Guidall is to Craig Johnson (Walt Longmire series). To use a different narrator would be very hard to get used to.
If you liked the previous books, you will surely like this one just as well. I just hope Kevin Hearne keeps adding more and more books in this series.
I loved the series the most when Luke Daniels either remembered what each character sounded like and read with enthusiasm and heart instead of whoever is reading now. This guy sounds like a graduate of the talking-head school of elocution with every sentence weighted for posterity. Kevin. . .get Luke Daniels back, please!
I'm not sure I would have read every print book in the series . . . but I was DYING to for each new book in this audible series to become available . . . Kevin Hearne is the best reader. Ever.
This particular book didn't feel finished.
The main character. And then the dog.
I've coached an award winning competitive speech team for 15 years. I use Hearne's voices as examples of character development.
