Jim Dale has got to be the best narrator in the history of narrators. He is so magnificent I could literally listen to him read a phone book (do they even make those anymore?) and find it riveting. When you add in the fact that he is, in fact reading a rather exciting and charming story that is unique and engaging, it makes for such a brilliant combination and a book I wanted to keep listening to. The story was well written and I loved the characters. I also quite love stories where somewhat outcast children/teenagers are the heroes/heroines. The fact that the other good guys and bad guys were statues was very creative. I also love stories that creates parallel supernatural dimensions, if you will, to real life. This story was about another London inhabited by spits and taints, Statutes on buildings, gargoyles and other carvings that come to life and can only be seen by a select few. Like Simon R Greens the Nightside or Neil Gaimen's Neverwhere with its London Below, this book tells the story of yet another London. I cannot wait to listen to the next book.
I liked hearing about this other place that has been referred to in other Simon Greene stories. It was a fast pace and fun story. I am kinda hoping that this is going to be another series.
The characters were very interesting. I liked how the author developed them.
The narrator added alot to this book. Each character was distance and had its owned personality.
I liked this book and I wanted to keep listening to it. I found myself taking a longer walk or lunch or the long way home to keep listening.
A continuation of an epic struggle of god vs evil.
I love these characters. I already started the next book because I am so excited to find out what happens next.
He narration is just perfect. Each character is distinct and I love listening to her.
I am so involved in this story I find myself choking up listening to it a lot I also laughed out loud in many places. These characters are so human and real I love hearing about their lives. I will be sad when the series is over.
This series has quickly moved to my top 10 series.
This is an incredible epic saga where the villains are very bad and the heroes very good. The story is compelling and I never wanted to stop listening to it. The narrator was excellent as well. The only thing was this particular segment had some audio flaws but it was not bad enough to detract from what an incredible story this is.
The battles are amazing. I can almost see how this would be if it were a movie. I did not want the series to end.
I have listened to many of Kate Reading's performances and this, like all of them, is superb. One of the finest narrators around.
The battle scenes made me cry. I have come to love these characters. I soared with their triumphs and weeped with their defeats.
The narrator is as excellent as the story. I love Kate Redding and her reading of this book in phenomenal
This series is unlike any I have read. At its heart it is an underdog story about good and evil but it is so much more. The characters are rich and complex and there are many twists and turns.
There is nothing bad about Kate Reading's performance. Her characterization is fantastic and each character is distinct. And I love her accent
I always looked forward to listening to the book. I took longer walks and longer ways home. Didn't want to turn it off
I can't wait to listen to the next book
I am really excited to listen to the next book. I have really grown to like all of these characters and there are alot of twists and turns in the story line. This particular book ended on a real cliff hanger and I am excited to see what happens next.
I can't say enough great things about this series. It is creative, it has supernatural fantastic-ness, werewolves, and vamps and witches oh my. And a talking dog, who happens to be my favorite character. I can't wait to listen to more. I love the narrator too.
I am totally addicted to this series and I think my favorite part may be when Oberon talks. It is exactly how I would imagine a dog communicating, well maybe a little more intelligently than I imagine, but I love this particular insight to the story. Atticus makes me want to spend 12 years learning arcane languages and spells to be a Druid too.
Still a very fun, fast paced book. I really liked it. I so loved the first three and Jim Dale that it was a little hard to get used to a different narrator. I still highly recommend this book and this series.
This story was really engaging and a bit frightening if this is really how life is in North Korea. The paranoia, the games, the "rehabilitation camps" the propaganda is so cold war it is hard to believe that this still exists. I immediately cared about the characters and couldn't wait to continue the story each time I had to stop the book.
The narrators were really excellent as well. The added alot to the story and really added life to the story. I am interested to read more from this author and this story made me want to learn more about this mysterious and dangerous place called North Korea.
I was engrossed from the beginning. There were so many twists and turns and surprises it kept me guessing until the end. I love the extra creative twist that the protagonist/detective is suffering from amnesia in addition to trying to solve a mystery. I can't wait to read more from this author. The narrator was excellent and really added to the experience. I admittedly have a thing for narrators with accents, but she was excellent nonetheless. Highly recommend. It is a highly unique story.
