I liked all the really twisty turns in this book that turned in ways I didn't expect and I really like how James Marsters is really putting his all into improving his voices. I mean butters was different and very distinct this book.
Kris Kringle hangs out at the Winter Fey court.
The scene where we finally get to see the Outer Gates and get a real understanding of the Outsiders and their threat to Dresdan's world. It really showed the Lovecraftian influence.
Yes, yes a thousands times yes. I got it midnight as it was released Tuesday morning and have been listening to it almost non-stop since Tuesday and today is Wednesday at 8:30 PM.
Buy the book, buy the whole series on audio. Its fun and interesting and it only improves with each book. But do yourself a service and make sure to start at the first couple so you get all the in jokes in the later books. But even if you don't each book is a pretty good place to start since Jim Butcher really prepares the reader with information at important scenes so new readers aren't lost.
None. I've never run into a book about zombies from the zombies perspective that wasn't someone turning into a zombie and losing their mind and humanity. This is opposite. very Cerebral. Pun not intended.
He brings the voice of R. He make are, for lack of a better term, come alive and be a distinct voice instead of a boring narration.
R of course . Gives us a really idea of what it might be like to exist as a zombie and if capable of thought why they don't just die.
I biased because I liked the movie and saw it first, but I ended up liking the book more in a lot of ways since it discussed things we didn't have time to delve into in the movie. Also the ending is a little less happy ending and more uncertain, but still ... sorry no spoilers. Buy it.
I loved the alternate universe. I don't know where the cover come in "Illusion" but the new universe had such an interesting back story I immediately wanted another book just about this alternate universe. Ash alternte married Artemis, I mean how did that happen?
The first appearence of young ash
This book it would have to be the Adarian Malachi and the closure we got with his character. Also Zhavien
I felt a little sad for Zhavien and Adarien and how their lives couldn't have been happier.
Learning more about the history of the goddess entity and how it all works.
I would have dropped the Trent romance line. I know a lot of people love this pairing, but I still remember how he was introduced as a drug running murderer and while he had his reasons to keep his secrets, the secret of the survival of the elven race he in my mind is still a murdering scumbag.
I hope the final books answers more.
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.
