I got this book because it was narrated by Bronson Pinchot and the plot sounded interesting. However, I had no Idea how great this book was going to be. It was originally released in the 1950's. However, there is no way you could tell, because the story and the setting are timeless. The narration was first rate Mr.Pinchot never disappoints and the story had me enthralled. If you like lord of the rings or fantasy in general you should pick this one up.
This is an amazing book. Its been awhile since I could get really excited about a series. The Emperor's Blades is outstanding in every way. Its very well written and is set in a sweeping and imaginative world. The characters are likable and surprisingly deep. The action in this book is both fantastic yet gritty and real. This book really grabbed me and got me swept up in the story. Overall, I think this is a must have.
A Walk Among the Tombstones by Lawrence Block is really an outstanding novel. Some of the settings and investigative techniques may be a little dated, but it really is an awesome read. The plot to this one will get you hooked and keep you there. The only draw back to this novel is that the narrator was indeed really bad. I would love to see this work redone with someone with more range and skill. Mark Hammer makes all the characters sound like their 80. The whole book seems like it was recorded in a nursing home, which is a shame because this one is really quite exceptional.
I really enjoyed the entire series. This novel was no exception it was a great ending to a wild, dark, and enjoyable ride.
This series is amazing and very well written. Plot and setting very well done. As a New Yorker I felt the city was well represented and turned into a mystifying place. The Foe is hot on the heels of our hero's in this one and the odds seem stacked against them.
This was an unexpected surprise I had low expectations coming in but I was blown away and hooked almost from the start. I have no idea why Ron Perlman doesn't do Narrate books anymore because he was really amazing in this one. The story is also outstanding the whole series is great.
It cannot be overstated how wonderful this series is. This has become my new favorite series the characters are original and likable. The setting is familiar, yet completely exotic. The combat is very well don't and very exciting.
This is the first Thomas Harris book I have very read, and I have to admit it was amazing. I saw the movie Red Dragon years ago, but as usual the book was really so much better. I had no idea how much the show Hannibal, pulls from this one novel. The characters are deep and the author brings them to life. The work is full of insight and intellect. In short, this is a must read for everyone.
This is an outstanding book. I'm an experienced lifter and I thought I really understood how to create the body I wanted. However, this book really taught me a lot that I didn't know. It caused me to change my entire program and I've had amazing success. I think that this book will save anyone years of fruitless struggle and help you get the body you want. This book offers all the info your ever going to need to reach your goals. This book is amazing and I think people should really pick it up and follow the program to see for yourself.
Firstly, I think this is a great but to get for anyone that you think needs to get themselves together and become motivated and dedicated to their own improvement. However, if your a person who already has themselves squared away then sadly this book has little to offer you. I think David Rutherford is really an awesome person and I listen to his podcasts and I subscribe to him on youtube. I bought this book to support him, but sadly I didn't get much out of it. I would get this book for a young man.
This Series is truly the dark horse in the sci-fi world and on audible as a whole. A deep and complex world filled with deep and complex characters. You can't really get ahead of this story. Another factor in this story is that you can never tell which characters are going to die and this series does rack up a body count. However, it does a great job of introducing new characters in way that week the story flowing. I love this series.
