But be warned he doesn't actually end his books. I love the story and know a lot of people are leaving bad reviews because he stops in the middle, but deal with it. Its worth it. I basically listened back to back and they are great. I'm waiting for my last credit so I can get the next one. Characters are enjoyable, with the occasional "nobody would actually do that" thought but they are few and far between. Good apocalyptic biohazard end of humanity story. You will be hooked.
It was an interesting story, obviously a teaser to introduce you to the character and setting. It was free so I won't knock it, but it wasn't bad. A nice little story to peak your interest in the dystopian future for this little girl and the new world where no food grows, life depends on computer updates and the military is feared. I would possibly be interested in listening to the next story but am not chomping at the bit to see what happens next.
As always Maberry delivers a nail biting, "did that really just happen?", story full of suspense and "oh crap" moments. Ray Porter, the voice of Ledger, accomplishes another outstanding performance. I am bias. I love the series, and Predator One does not disappoint. I pounded it out in a few days. Once it gets going you will be surprised by the suspense each of the characters drags the listener through. I winced and let out a few shrill "what?"s during my listen. Bravo. Bring on the next.
Maberry and Porter did it again! Great short stories! If you already have the missing files there are some repeats but the new stories are worth it!
There is an interview at the end btwn Mayberry and Porter which was an interesting quick listen.
I don't know if it was my excitement to start my other book or spring fever but I really struggled through the last half of this book. I enjoyed the first book quite a bit, especially Ms. Peabody's personality and to hell with societies expectations but this one seemed much slower than the first. It probably could have been shorter and perhaps it was the supporting characters that made it less exciting than the first, but there it is. Still worth a read but just a bit lagging on and on and on.
Old school British archaeological adventure with wit! It kept my interest and did surprise me in spots. There were a couple moments that dragged a bit but otherwise it was a fun listen. The narrator did a good job.
I found it a bit of a struggle to get through, luckily it's a shortie. As a fan of the movies It was interesting to hear how it came to be and was impressed that the movie held true to the original story as it did. It's been awhile since I watched them and probably should watch and listen again and maybe I could follow it better, but overall I found myself getting a little lost from time to time. The narrator didn't really distinguish the characters well and I kept getting lost on who was doing what when. However, I was impressed by the scientific aspects in the book considering the time at which it was written.
Blah, First it's annoying when writers don't use contractions, nobody talks like that and it sounds forced. The story was ok, but the protagonist makes some silly decisions and misses the obvious. The dialogue is equally lacking and unrealistic. I finished it but was a bit bored.
The narrator was great and I really got sucked in to the characters story, but I guess I failed to realize that this was just a prequel, so I was left with a wtf feeling. So you will want to keep on with the series. Otherwise great but hoy, just what I need another series...
I am probably bias as I watch the show, but I have grown attached to the character's personality on the show and the characters in the book, seem lacking. Maura is presented is mousy and weak but I don't think that is necessarily true to her character, at least not the character I have grown accustomed to. The same with Rizzoli, I don't think she would be as passive either.
The story was ok. Again, decisions made by the characters didn't seem to fit the personalities I know. It also seemed to wrap up quickly. It drags on throughout and then boom its over.
The narrator was OK, but seemed to have problems with some of the male voices, making them sound kind of silly.
I did enjoy the twists and found myself hurrying back to the car to find out what happened next. I am also intrigued as to the ending, a small section is left open. Again, not the worst but not the best either, but enough to keep my interest.
I thought I wouldn't need the interactive part but you do. It just reads the spanish to go with the book. Cant just listen in your car. Defeats the purpose in my opinion.
