Little slow at the start, and I also figured out the ending well in advance. I did like how the two stories finally came together, but all in all a fine book worth listening to. Just a note, I would have given this book 4 stars but midway though the book a different narrator takes over 2 of the characters, and then an hour later the old narrator returns, kind of ruined one of the most interesting parts of the book.
You cant go wrong with Larson and Boyett. Only fault is that I have to wait months for the next book now.
Could have shaved at least 3hrs off this book...if not more. Forced myself to get through the first two parts..Last part is when it got interesting...but not enough to make this book worth getting.
Thought I would give this series a try since it sounded a bit in the area of Hunger Games. Its not on the same planet... So much time was spent on tris's emotions and feelings I wanted to puke. If your looking for more than maybe 2 min of action...skip this book.
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.
