Yes, I love the story, Kate and all the characters.
Gee, there wasn't just one.
The part where Kate is remembering her guardian made me cry.
I tried, I really did. I listen to this as long as I could. A little over an hour. It just didn't grab me. Oh heck, it was mindless drivel. I saw no point to this story, I saw no story at all.
I thought that the movie was better. Usually it is the other way around the book is great and the movie is just ok. I had never read this book and found it dull.
I really like the berserker books, but the narrator is very bad. It almost sounds like he is reading in an echo chamber.
This is the first book and I think the best. It gets you into the characters and you get sucked into the series.
Good listen. I used to listen to lots of mysteries, but some just got really sick and gave me nightmares. This is a good listen, and a good mystery. I have enjoyed it. I will purchase more.
I have read several of Tad Williams books and have enjoyed them. I listened to this whole series and it was just Ok. It starts out very slow, and plugs along. If you buy the first book, listen to it before you buy any of the others. I got this whole series before I listened to it,because I had enjoyed the authors prior works. I will not do that again. I would not have bought this book if I had listened to the first book before buying.
I first read this series long ago. I have been waiting for ages for it to come out in audio format. It is as good as I remember. I couldn't put it down. I am hoping for the last book to come out soon. This is one I could listen to over and over.
A couple of the characters are crybabies, but they are supposed to be teenagers. Overall an interesting story. I normally like Tad Williams, he spins a great story. Since there are quite a few books I am hoping it will get a lot better.
I know they are for kids, but I am having a blast listening to these books. They are great for an afternoon of going back in time, when you used to believe in fairy tales.
This is the second book in this series and I am hooked on them now. I know that they are kids books, but they are enjoyable and fun.
