This was my first book by Dan Simmons and I must say I was impressed. But if you don't know much about hiking, mountain climbing, or the history of Mount Everest then this book is not for you. I could not stop listening to this story and I was very surprised with the direction it went towards the end. Jacob can be a bit annoying at times but I got over it. Definitely one of the best books I've heard all year.
How long must we now wait for book three? I love this story and the direction he has taken all of the characters, you will not be disappointed. And in my mind all fantasy books should be narrated by Kramer and Reading so no complaints there.. I know you're working on the sequel to Steelheart, Alloy of Law, Legion, and who knows what else Brandon but please don't leave us waiting too long.
Anyone of the stories would have been good on their own, I loved the Colonel's story. As a whole I was very disappointed.
Keith holds nothing back. What I like most about this journey is Keith sharing his songwriting techniques and his overall love of music. I am impressed by this man and will never think of him as just some burned out drug addict but that of a true artist.
I can't believe I finished this series. My instinct told me to stop a few books back but I kept on going. Butcher spends so much time describing how the characters feel and why that I actually forget what was about to happen in the first place. I only wish the series flowed at a faster pace. Not to knock Jim Butcher because he is an excellent writer but he's not for everyone. Give the first book a try before you let my opinion persuade you.
Brandon Sanderson and Michael Kramer are a perfect match! This story pulled me in from beginning to end with multiple plot twists and a very unpredictable ending. The worlds that Brandon creates are both smart and captivating, the kind I never want to leave.
Some of these characters were just plain evil, evil to the core. King is really good at portraying evil hidden behind religion which has always been a fire starter within me. I'm sure that's what the writer was after though. Good book, can't wait to see the mini series this summer.
I was pleasantly surprised by this series of books and would highly recommend them to anyone who is a fan of good fantasy. My only problem with the story is that it takes place in just over a week yet vast distances are traveled by armies. Other than that I was really swept away in this adventure and feel as though I know these characters very well.
Just finished this classic for the first time. Though I couldn't get Keanu Reeves out of my mind while visualizing the character I found the book to be very well written but a little tedious at times. This book would have been much better had my mind not been so tainted by all the vampire crap we've grown up with especially of late.
This book grabbed me from the beginning and would not let go until the very end. What an incredible find......I loved it!
