I will probably get struck by lighting for saying this but this book is as good as anything in the Wheel of Time series! Really its that good.
I love it when I pick a book and it turns out AWESOME! Put Mr. Larson and Mr. Boyett together and you cant go wrong.
First off I would like to say that I am a big fan of Mr. Sanderson. Other than the horrible final book of the Wheel of Time series he can do no wrong in my book. With that said...This book was AWESOME!! A bargain at twice the price! I am sure that we will be seeing a movie deal in the near future..it was that good.
Wonderful narration, great story, loved the entire book UNTIL the last 10 seconds... I was so mad at this ending (or lack of) I had to look at my Ipod to see if I forgot to download something. Cliffhanger doesn't even come close to this non-ending!! No spoiler here but imagine watching star wars and right after Luke shoots the torpedo BUT before it goes down the hole the movie ends!! I will not be getting the next book unless Card prices it at a HUGE discount. I feel cheated...
If you were male and between 10 and 20 in the 80's then you are going to love this book. By far one of the best I have listened to! Well worth a credit!! I would rate this book in the top 3 of the 200 or so audio books I have listened to in the last 5 years...its that good.
Well the problem I have is that I buy these story collections because an author I like puts his name on it. Aside from one story having to do with the Iron Druid series the rest were no where near the quality of Mr. Hearne. As for that one Iron Druid story..some other narrator did Oberons voice...and it totally ruined the experience.
Another fine story from Kevin Hearne!! Someone important DIES!! Not telling who but your going to be in shock!!
I think people would be a little more freaked out in real life but still a good story.
Best book I have heard in a long time. I was scared to buy this book because it sounded a murder mystery. Let me tell you this book has everything. Love story, mystery, the hardship a young man goes through trying to figure out what his future will hold, and of course murder and ghosts to a small degree. Trust me, this is one of his better audio books by far.
There is a reason why this used to be 2 credits and now its only one. There is also a reason why they didn't call it the greatest collecting or the scariest. Most stories are written before 1900...and it shows. The stuff that would have been scary back then is so boring now. I can't say enough about how horrible some of this collection was. The french accents on some of the stories made be just skip the entire book. Save yourself a credit and buy something else.
Worth every penny.....all 69 of them. I'm sure if you add up all the books it would cost way more than a credit, at half the listening time.
