I was introduced to Mr Riordan’s works by my teenage cousin who wanted me to read the Percy Jackson series with her. I was instantly hooked to the series. I am a sucker for anything historical/mythological related.
I began to search for other books written by Mr Riordan.
I came across the Kane Chronicles. The dynamic relationship between Carter and Sadie reminds of my own relationship with my sibling. The sarcasm. The mutual understanding that we can pick on each other however we want, but if an outsider tries to pick on either one of us, then they’ve another thing coming…
The wonderful narration + Mr Riordan's writing made me felt like I was on the same adventure as the Kanes.
I look forward to finishing the Kane series.
I think the review title says it all. The approach is refreshing. But can't quite put my finger on it, something was lacking.
I am a big fan of thrillers, whether is police, spy, legal, etc.
And I Am Pilgrim is simply one of the best that I've heard in a long time.
The breakdown of the parts and chapters are refreshing and very easy to follow.
Not to mention the narration by Christopher Ragland makes the story believable and engaging.
The storyline deals with all the possible relevant “what ifs”.
Hope "Pilgrim" will appear in other books down the line.
Stumbled upon this series by accident…
The books aren’t long, usually approx. 8 hrs with good narration.
I’ll say this, Georgie’s got moxy.
It was a good listen, and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next to Percy and company as they made their way to/through hell and back.
Why did they change narrators? What happened to Joshua Swanson?
I thought Nick Chamian did a good job, but when you've listened to the past 3 books being narrated by Joshua Swanson, the sudden switch was a bit odd.
I agree with the other reviewers, this 3rd book seemed like filler.
Giles Barrington's whole MP campaign ran too long.
And after all that has happened with Harry and Emma, Seb would just run off?
Perhaps this was a ploy to create another villain for future books that involves the next generation?
Finally, what kind of an ending was that?!?!
And yes, like a pawn, I will “read” book 4.
First book I read of Mr Archer's was the Prisoner of Birth, which I loved.
Then it was Kane and Abel, another great title.
But Paths of Glory, just felt short to me. The narration was excellent.
Guess the content about mountain climbing just wasn't my cup of tea.
However, it did get me to look up info about some of the key part players from the book.
This audiobook by far was the longest book that I've ever listened to, but it was totally worth it. The narration by Mr Culp was excellent and it brought the book alive.
For once Audible's recommendations didn't disappoint...
I am a thriller junkie, and I don’t care if more often than not the stories are a bit formulaic. As long as the plot is good, the narrator doesn't put you to sleep, the characters are likable and/or interesting, I am IN.
This book was just that. Liked Nathan's character, a master of weaponry, skills, etc, and yet, he's flawed.
Will be checking out other books in the series.
Loved the Percy Jackson series, so the Kane Chronicles was an obvious choice.
From Greek mythology onward to Egyptian. Great story, with excellent narrations. Didn't want the story to end. Looking fwd to book 2 and book 3.
It matters not, if you're not the targeted audience, this audio book is for you, if you like classical mythology, are an avid fan of the sci-fi channel, want to escape several hours by listening to a good story with excellent voice acting…
