"Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference." ~ Kant
I had heard about Hugh Howey's WOOL and decided to buy it. I'll be honest, it took a while for me to get used to Amanda's voice but I think she does a good job. She's more suited for female character narration but I guess I should have expected that she wouldn't be able to convey male voices well. Not many female narrators can. Once I was accustom to her inflections, I listened happily along.
The story is fantastic. Howey is a great story teller. Howey unfolds the events in WOOL masterfully. Suspense, shock, horror are all conveyed well as you listen. You will feel like you are right there, inside the silo, living among its inhabitants.
Pick this up. Do it now! You won't regret it.
No. The story is slow and nothing exciting happens. The character development was so weak that I didnt care who lived or died.
Probably. The narration was not great but I have heard worse.
This audiobook is actually the omnibus version of several ebook shorts published on Amazon. The kindle reviews, for each individual story, are pretty good. Maybe that is how this particular story is best received, in small portions.
Better narrator. Honestly, I hate to be negative but I just couldn't get into her voice. She really didn't sell it. I was annoyed by her character voices. Maybe it's just me, but I couldn't get into it.
I didn't think she differentiated between the characters that much. She sounded like she was trying to do impressions of them, instead of actually DOING them. The voices sounded too much like her own.
I cannot understand this woman at all at any speed. This is Whisperjet so i read it. Story is slow, boring and is sci fi because of being in grim future. Only pessimists need apply. Murder mystery with standard plot but all in one large building.
Clear distinct voice needed
The stair climbing
Wasted my time cause i had to read it not listen while on train
