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.
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.
Not what I was expecting. It is an interesting take on technology and social interactions. Of course its just a preview, but I will probably end up getting the full book to see what happens.
Not bad. It did what it was supposed to which was pull me in and cause me to want to get the rest of the books in the series. Its not bad. Im not leaping to use a credit right now but it hooked me in. It jumps around to flashbacks a lot which I found a bit annoying. The narrator is ok. She doesn't do guys voices well but is ok. Not the worst I've heard by far. Worth a listen.
This trilogy is awesome. I am not a romancy girl but these stories had mystery excitement and a perfect touch of magic and fantasy. Yea yea the romance was ok too. I got sucked into the characters quite quickly and pretty much listened back to back. Really couldn't put them down, in the car, in the kitchen, getting ready for bed, nonstop. Good stuff.
I enjoyed the characters however it wasn't quite what i was expecting. I was kind of put off by the fact that the bad guy is a pedophile. If it wasn't for that aspect I would have really enjoyed the book, other than that it was good.
