The way the characters are so completely different and vivid. As if each were product of the imagination of a different author.

Howard Hendricks the lawyer
jail cel interview between Hendricks and Ford
Great story, great characters, great narration.
No. I seldom listen to books more than once.
Tyrion Lannister. Obvious underdog, bullied his whole life. He's coming up in the world and doing big things. Will he stay humble? It seems like a question Tyrion would ask himeself.
That's why I like the character so much.
Roy does 2 or 3 voices voices very well.
But! his females all sound like toothless old crones in pirate movies. Even the young beautiful ones.
The remainder of male characters sound like grumpy Leprechauns. I'm not joking. They really do. It's getting quite old and it's very disappointing.
That said Roy has the perfect amount of drama. His voice is excellent for reading the back story. You find yourself lost in the story till it comes time to narrate a female part. Then he snaps you out of it like being awakened from a sleep by a power saw in your bedroom.
37 hours N/A.
Just finishing up book 2. Already bought book 3.
I'm excited about the series and will be more than ready to move on after book 3.
Regardless of how it leaves me hanging.
The first 10 minutes had me doubting my choice. So many characters had me confused. Then it started to come together and became easier to follow. After 10 minutes I was hooked and dug in to enjoy the 33 hour monster. I looked forward to my long drives.
More a work of Historical Fiction than Fantasy.The linquistic nuances are fanscinating. The many humourous parts are very natural, honest and especialy funny considering from "whenst it cometh" (inside joke).
Katelyns many observations of her son Rob.
This book was not what I expected. The genre is something I would never consider. Considering all the hype I took a chance and gave it a listen. I'm glad I did. I feel like the book nerd I was over 20 years ago when I would go to bed early just so I could read.
The book is filled with truths and observations on humanity. The way the dwarf deals with his lot in life. The way a young prince or bastard has to deal with the cards they are given. The ups and downs, the dirt and glory. It's all there if you want it.
The book is substantial not because of the length, but it's depth.
Probably not. It was adolescent.
Protagonist was fine. The accents were terrible. Old British man sounded exactly the same as middle aged German.
Sure. It was easy enough to follow.
Definately not a 2. But definately not a 4.Don't expect much and you won't be disappointed.
No. A few of the passages were funny enough to make me laugh out loud but it was a slow moving story. Adding in all of the extremely long poetic dream sequences slowed down the book alot further.
Yes. Old man narrator voice. As warm and cozy as hot chocolate in front of the fireplace.
I do not recommend driving long distances at night lest you fall asleep. Which I nearly did myself.
Sure. I'd watch it too. Would like to see Josh Brolin be the Sherrif. Someone about 50 years old.
I did enjoy the book. I do prefer faster moving stories. All the prolonged dream sequence indian ghost talk was boring and stereotypical. It really dragged out an already slow moving story.
The characters were portrayed as if they were written to be in a play or sit-com. Not very deep and a little over animated. The character depth could be defined by a single sentence description. ie: The nosey know it all shop keeper. The strict secretary. The rough around the edges deputy etc.
My rating of 3 accross the board is generous. I bought the sequel without listening to the first book. I'll be sending the second book back. I speed listened through the second book and it was definately a rushed write. Did not finish the second book.
All survival techniques mentioned are well researched and explained
It was kind of predictable. The book is titled Patriots after all.
Someone else. DH sounds like the narrator of a 1950's high school educational reel throughout the entire book.
It's kind of a preppers fantasy crossed with "How the West was Won". Patriotic, religious. Characters were VERY shallow, underdeveloped and one dimensional.One of the worst narrations I've heard in a long time which is surprising because I like Dick Hill.
For some reason I enjoyed the book. It was full of interesting information. The scenario was interesting. It was fairly fast moving with lots of juicy parts. I certainly have been stocking up on rice and canned food since listening. Just in case. You never know. If you have the room,..why not?
Lots of action and well written.
No it did not.
It has an unusual plot and protagonist.
Maybe someone who has not yet heard that Bin Laden is dead. A big maybe.
This book was 95% about the very uninteresting narrator/author. The actual mission to kill Bin Laden was at the very, very end.
If you are expecting any information on Bin Laden. Do not buy this book.
The first 95% was jibberish.
5 minutes of Youtube would be more informational and enjoyable than this entire book. A waste of money.
Sure. Wait for a sale price though.
Yes. I belive he has talent. He just did not try too hard with this book.
I've listened to worse and also much better.
I guessed who dun it 1/4 of the way into the book.
Nothing surprised me. No twists. Predictable, unclever plot.I would say the book did not even have potential to be a good story.
Norwegian not British.
The accent should have been Norwegian. Like the Renko novels use a Russian accent.He's not a bad narrator. Just the wrong one for this book.
Surprise. Such a highly rated book is so predicable.
A poor experience. Maybe I just got lucky in guessing who done it. But I kind of doubt it.
He is now on my watch 'short list' for print and audio.
The implication that the available workforce of certain regions are saught by some corporations.
He narrated as if he wrote the book himself and was speaking from memory. Adlibing along the way. Very natural sounding guy.
The author is an ambidextrous basher and advocate. True objectivity if there is such a thing is rare and refreshing. He does not let ideals get in the way of his very solid take on various issues.The book was deeply engaging and I wished for much more. The narrator was a great choice and completely natural for this book. I'm looking for more by Bageant, but sadly nothing. I hope to see some soon. He is definately on my watch list.
