Not my cup of tea. Didn't finish it. Lost interest about halfway through after one too many discordant notes. You're muddling through, mostly inadvertently tallying the count as one more 'borrowed' story item/theme/scene appears and then WTF?! as the cartoonish plot point registers and you realize that it's actually some seriously screwed up stuff. The characters are unsurprisingly 2 dimensional. It would probably make a great movie for horror fans with the right treatment.
You'll need to enjoy unrelenting trauma unbroken by any moments of calm in which to catch your breath.
If this genre is "drama", then yes. If this genre is "horse stories", then it's has increased my wariness which was already pretty elevated.
The narrator did a good job with accents.
This is best read in print so that you can skim through approximately 80% of the book. It only became interesting in the last 5 hours, and that should have been abridged as well.
I've teetered towards buying this book for the last year and was swayed by the positive reviews. I really should have trusted my instincts. But I really hoped it was going to be one of those books that you are leery of and which after reading you wish that you'd read it sooner. It wasn't.
Absolutely! Each time something new a joke, a literary or mythological reference pops out and increases the enjoyment.
It's hard to pick just one, but the betrayal sticks out in my mind as it creates a new arc in the story...it's completely unexpected yet how Atticus handles the situation educates the reader on how he has survived this long.
The voices, the intonation, the pacing of the story is unique and so much better than when I read it in print. This maybe because only this one have I also read the print edition. After reading the print edition, I bought the audible version just to listen to Luke Daniels' interpretation of my favorite characters.
I've read on Mr. Hearne's blog/website that he plans for 9 books (an important number in cycles, especially Irish) so I am eagerly awaiting books 5-9. I hope that if 9 ends the Iron Druid Chronicles that he will write another Cycle!
absolutely not, unless I fell prey to an unknown tendency towards masochism
All of them
The saddest moment in this book was realizing since it was narrated in First Person that the character I most wanted to immediately die, the Narrator, aka, the heroine of the novel, wouldn't. To keep listening past the first couple of hours, was perhaps masochistic. I kept on with it, hoping she'd grow the spine/balls that one would logically expect...but no...she dissolved into fumbling incompetence and the banality of the storyline grew in direct proportion.
Probably not, but certainly more convenient. The narrator took a bit of getting used to as I'd already read in print the earlier book in the series, but once adapted to her characterization (not the voice I'd pictured Jenks as having, but it worked well) it was a pleasurable listen.
It tied up loose ends, Rachel develops in this story instead of spinning her wheels in a repeat of the
The price was outrageous, 2 credits it is not worthy of, I wouldn't spend that much again on it if I had to do over. I'd buy the book in print instead. That said, this is alot better than I thought it would be as I was getting tired of Rachel et al simply repeating themselves with no character growth. Now I have hope for this series! However, I'll buy the next one in print if the credit cost remains 2 credits.
proficient, characterization, consistency
Almost all of them
The stories were just
