Never listened to before. His voice is plesant enough.
No. Too short for a movie
It was okay and entertaining enough. Length was about right.
No. No time to re-listen. Life is too short.
No one most memorable moment stands out. There were many moments that moved the story along nicely.
No. First time. At first the female's British accent was strong, but I pleasantly got used to it. The male's voice was strong and clear.
No. I don't get moved much.
Definitely a good read. I enjoyed the story all the way to the end. The characters were quite interesting. This book topic was a nice break from the gloom-and-doom end-of-the-world books I normally enjoy. I would recommend this book to friends.
Each book in the series has a great cast of characters. All through out the series, it was enjoyable to hear about characters introduced in previous chapters show up again in later books. The characters were well done and fit into the story very nicely. Cut Off wrapped up the story very well.
That is a very tough question to answer. I enjoyed the dark humor as narrated by Ray Chase. Any character with this dark humor side is ranked high on my list. Even then I still cannot pick out a favorite without back spacing over my previous choice. There were loads of bad characters, but it's funny I cannot remember their names like I remember these core characters that were all good.
Yes, but only in between reading one of these books. I really enjoy his narration style and humor. Although I wonder if it is actually the author's humor expressed by Ray Chase. In any case, I plan to look for another book that Ray Chase has narrated.
No extreme reactions. No allergies, viruses or coughs. Although I did laugh quite often by the dark humor, as previously mentioned.
I really enjoyed the series of books so much I hate to see the experience end. I am not sure if a continuing story line is possible, but if another book is written by the same author/narrator combo, count me in.
Probably since I don't like to physically read. I am a good listener though.
It introduces the series since this is book 0.5. I read all but book 5 before listening to this book. (Book 4 has ties to this book.)
Ray Chase is great. I need to check on other books he has narrated.
Enjoy life while you can. Without electricity, quality of life will degrade quickly.
I love the series. I am glad I decided to read the series. As I start on the last book, I wish there was another book in the works.
Absolutely. It was not what I expected. I thoroughly enjoyed the book. This book mentioned some things I never knew or had forgotten. It also made me do some more research to learn more. I didn't know Grover Cleveland was the 22nd and 24th President of the United States. Along with some other tidbits that I will let you explore.
How informative the stories were and how interesting they proved to be.
All of them equally.
No. It was sad to hear about a couple of the suicides.
This is an amazing book. I was surprised to learn of the connection between Lucille Ball and Star Trek. Also the link between Alan Turing and Apple corp. I thought there might be gloom and doom since this is a Glenn Beck book, but I was pleasantly surprised it was otherwise.
It was written in a light, comical manner but still presented good information.
Only one person died that I remember.
It was more of a how to book without any scenery.
It was a good overall book with plenty of good ideas and reminders of what I had learned earlier. It was a nice interruption from the usual apocalyptic books I read.
The action and pace of the two main stories. (Third trailed in at the end.)
How can I tell you without spoiling it for others? All I can say is the re-unions.
All of them. Ray Chase is a joy to listen to. He defines each character. I love the sarcasm.
No extreme reaction that I know of.
Very good book. It felt a bit different than the previous books but I still enjoyed the story. As with any good series of books, you hate to see yourself reaching the end of the series. I am trying not to rush through and enjoy each book.
Somewhere in the middle. It was okay, but it became a story with too much military fiction. The story is very detailed and well written but I was bored by the detail.
Comet. A strong and determined character.
He did a great job defining each character. His individual character voices made each character stand out and were recognizable without introduction.
From Maple King to Galaxy Conqueror.
It is a good read, but I will return to my gloom-and-doom apocalyptic stories. Troy was too serious and had a lot of military detail. Apocalyptic stories are more cheerful.
The disappearance was most interesting. The cats without a face was not.
I have listened to Ray Chase before in Breakers. He's a great narrator.
I read it was being made into a TV series. May watch it but probably won't continue in the audio book series.
If they can get it cheap like I did, sure. Otherwise, probably not.
Probably not. It's more of a lecture series on a topic you would want to listen to / desire to listen to.
Nothing. He presented the material well and in a clean spoken manner.
No. He covered the topic enough for me.
Nope. I am exercising my self control.
Don't actually read for entertainment. I have no idea.
I like "end of the world" stories but this one was fun to listen to. For this type of subject matter, I was surprised I laughed so much. The dark humor was quite funny.
Ray Chase did an excellent job bringing the characters to life. With the dark humor, he played off the lines really well. I will have to see what else Mr. Chase has narrated.
No, but I did finish the story fast for me. I wish there were more stories in the series. I figure I will take a break because I read 1, 2 and 3 pretty quickly, one after another. I will read something else and come back to book 4.
I was surprised that I really enjoyed this series and had quite a few laughs. Hopefully this author has other books I might like.
