I am an older woman and thought I would not enjoy this book. I thought it would be too young adult. But the reviews made me spend my credit and give it a try. It was a bit of a slow start for me, but once it got rolling, I found I couldn't stop listening. I am moving on to the next in the series.
I am not a huge fantasy or sci-fi reader, but the imagination of Brandon Sanders was fascinating. Instead of taking the opening of the book and explaining the world his mind has created, he starts with a dynamic beginning and dares you to question this new reality. And if you will allow yourself to forget all logic and accept this new reality, well you will love this story.
No curse words, no detailed gory descriptions, just a fun story.
The characters, the strife, the fights, the oh heck, I can't decide. It was fantastic!!
The reader took some time to get used to, but as the story is written from a first person perspective, it wasn't long before I just identified him as the main character. It's predictable but very enjoyable, especially during the climax. However the predictability didn't take away from my enjoyment of the street, even though I feel like I would have enjoyed this more if I had read the actual book, instead of listening to it. Either way, I'll be continuing the series.
An entertaining thrill ride with laughs and serious tones alike. Twists and turns weave their way through the fantasized psychology of power's effect on the human mind. But more so than that a story with which you can relate with the characters, dream of the tech and experience the rollar coaster that is Steelheart.
Best audio book I've listened to in some time. Mr. Andrews is my new favorite narrator. It always bothers me when the text says something like "he whispered sadly" and the narrator reads it like he just won the lottery. Mr. Andrews' presentation is totally in sync with the author, and his character delivery is perfect...it's like listening to a play with multiple actors. The story itself was clever, well-paced and had a payoff that did not disappoint. I'm glad I have credits saved up, so I can dive right into the next book!!
