I didn't find any interesting plot progression or character growth in this story. The two main characters are awkward and while that would be alright if it was intended, I find that their actions make me cringe. Not something I'd suggest.
The characters were weak/no plot progression.
No dramatic representation of the work, seems flat.
All of them....
Not really worth it.
High. As in, just below the Dresden Files read by James Marsden, and the Iron Druid Chronicles.
Mike. By far. As the main character, he is a strong character; seemingly always knowing what to do, but having weak points in his shell for his family.
Runnette is amazing with his accents and voices, and his ability to just whip out the quick witted jokes that would have been less enjoyable in print, without the snap of anger or wry humour.
I don't usually laugh or grin at something unless in a group, I just don't experience things outwardly much. But I've found myself giggling into my lunch or grinning at inopportune times at work while listening to this. And, turning a bit green as my cast iron stomach turns from the detailed explanations.
I would definitely listen to this again; the story line is intense and thrilling, and very hard to put down. Until you reach the end, there is always something you could pick up before the main character has, which gives a bit of an adrenaline rush, and maybe a bit of dread.
Any moment where Jane kicks something in the teeth. Beast's dialogue is very interesting, and is probably my favourite portion, simply because of the alternate view of the story.
Her ability to add anger or a quaver to the voices, expressing their emotions. She includes the pronounciation of words I would have otherwise butchered, and accents that make everything more believable.
Buy it. Read it. Share it.
