I don't know, maybe it's me, but I think it was a combination of the story and the narrator, I just couldn't connect. The story may ultimately come about, but the sing song narration just pushes me away. I've given it 6 hours of my life and it was a disappointment. I gave up and am moving on to bigger and better things. Sorry!
I enjoyed book 2 even more than book1. It is a real page turner that I found difficult to put down. I got through this one in record time! Again, very crude language, and a lot of sexual content, may not be the right choice for all, but for me, I can't wait to start book 3!!
Wasn't sure about this when I started, it hopped around and didn't break very well, but as I got into it, it seemed to get better. It does have some very crude language and sexual situations, so if this bothers you, best to move on to a tame title. Try it, you may just be surprised.
Never thought it would appeal to me, but I enjoyed the series a lot. Live and learn, expand your horizons, try it you'll like it.
I tried, I really did, I'm 4 hours in and have absolutely no clue, I don't know, maybe it's my listening style but I continually reset and listened again. Perhaps it is the narration or my habit of listening in short bursts, I'm totally lost, after 7 days of trying, many resets and no idea of the plot or ability to follow the characters, I finally gave up.
Of course, "your mileage may vary"
I've enjoyed this second in the series as much as the first. Flows smoothly, fast paced and fun. Great narration, easy listen, and a break from my normal inclination towards epic fantasy. I'm looking forward to books 3 and 4!
I still can't get over the fact that this series hooked me like it did, I took a chance and was rewarded, you can too!
OK, so not my usual genre, was looking for something a little different than the epic fantasy's I've been following. Hesitated, but glad I plunged in. Fast pace, interesting characters, light and easy to follow, and Ohh did I mention monsters - a lot of them!
I'm glad I took the chance, enjoyed it a lot, in fact I just purchased the rest of the series and look forward to listening to those. Try it you will like it.
Enjoyed this final book in the series very much. The ending was different than what I expected but did not detract from the story at all. Loved the narration, made for a very easy listen. Some have complained about the strong language throughout, for me it made it more lifelike. Spend your credits and listen, you won't be disappointed!
Great narration, decent flow and great plot line. Takes over right from where book 1 left off, enjoyable listen, well worth the credit.
Loved this one from start to finish! Not a slow starter like most. Great development and plot.
