This book was pretty good. It follows the transformation of a decent man into an evil emotionless hollow man whose goals are totally warped by the dark side of the force. I think this book was interesting to learn how the Star Wars universe converted from many sith to only two. It explains it more completely and for me that was reason enough to get it to understand why their are only two sith in the movies.
That said I won't be getting book 2 or 3 because this was the only portion of the story that is at all relevant to the larger story of star wars and the 2 books just tell about later portions of Banes life.
Fall then Rise
The suprises at the begining and and end of the book that caught me off guard. I also liked how the book answered questions from the last book partly and expanded on the world and gave us more questions.
The switch between their voices for male and female viewpoints was great, they really know their characters voices, though kate could practice male shouts of pain and horror a bit more.
Yes, unfortunately I couldn't take the time off and stay up for 2 days straight.
I liked the mix of modern earth life and the casual acceptance of gods and their favor in everyday modern earth life. I disliked that there was no serious discussion of an afterlife in all of that.
I haven't but I might look them up in the future.
I thought Fred did a good job of narrating. Didn't make any mistakes that I heard and he did manage to make the characters mostly distinct from each other.
I loved the insight into the people and the psychological effects of superpowers on the empowered and the normal people.
The Professor was adequtly mysterious and intriguing. I also liked the main point of view character but it was the others that kept me listining.
He's good. I'm not used to hearing him for Brandon Sanderson's books, and I am used to listening to him from the Sandman Slim series, so I kept expecting a lot more cursing. But he did a really good job. Very good at putting emotion and living speech into his narration.
It did make me joyous at the moment of epiphany for the main character.
This was a great and informative book. It both shocked me about how much we don't know about the food we eat each day and how much the companies don't care that they are killing its citizens. We really are addicted to processed food.
I would share this book with my friends and relatives.
The narrator was good, but it felt more like a story narrator and not someone who should share knowledge.
Great and informative, eye opening. I highly recommend it.
I'd only get another if I heard good things, read a good book in that series. But I'd only get another book in this series if it was on special discount.
Actually have the adventure begin. The whole first book is the action I would expect in the first act of any adventure book. The whole thing was all about the hero preparing to leave and ended with him finally leaving.
The narrator was actually pretty good, I just don't think this particular book was good enough material.
Only if they combined it with the other books inn the series.
Yes, to anyone who likes humourous scifi and fantasy like Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy or Red Dwarf , while not the same it is close enough to make me smile.
Theres is a lot to choose from in this story. Dozens of characters, but I liked Torloc the Spark prince and his mercenary ways and the fearful but heroic lars and his instincs that makes him scream and avoid danger. To very interesting and funny characters.
Yes I listened to Agtha H. book 1 and felt this was equal to that performance.
When Tarloc had to finally deal with his sister for good.
Buy it, and watch the web comic.
maybe. I liked this narrator's method of speech that brought the story to life.
None. I liked many of the characters.
Carter, because I really understood some of his emotions and because I thought he was very well performed in this audio book.
Not extreme, but it was nice to see the Olympian universe expanded with Egyptian gods and showing us that the universe is more complex. Plus the different relationship that the magicians had with thier gods compared to the demigods and their Greek/roman gods was interesting.
Lost in Space
I'd compare the idea to the Red Dwarf search for earth, but with more episodic adventures with serious old scifi tone. Think Lost in Space but with a few generations of people later.
When the crew defeats the computers.
Destroy Self willed Computers
Give it a shot. Its pretty entertaining for the price.
Well, I'd recommend this to a friend if like me they aren't associated with any political party and all they really know about political party's in America is what they learned in a text book. This book is pretty good at explaining the viewpoints of the different point of view and explain what Right and Left mean and what the wards that are flung around like liberal and conservative mean and how that meaning has changed over the years.
Economics in One Lesson and The Road to Serfdom because both link politics to economics and explain how economics is one of the motivating forces in shaping politics. The economics is more simple and road to Serfdom needs several reads.
He was easy to understand and nice to listen to.
What being Left and Right means and clarifying the ideals of the two party's with their realities.
Learning more about Bills Free Will powers and lauphing how Sally always screws him over.
Bill, because he is the hero most like me. Except employed.
His dry wit and humorous tone. It reminds me a little bit of Red Dwarf.
It would have to be the same tag line for the first book.
"There are dangerous things go bump in the night, he isn't one of them"
