Write faster!!! I've listened to all your books so far. This one might be my favorite. So please, WRITE FASTER!!!
This was a very enjoyable story, and the narrator was incredible! It was slightly predictable, and the "F" word was used in abundance... If you're sensitive to that kind of language, this book is probably not for you... But over all, the story drew me in. The author and narrator had me in the first chapter, which for me, rarely happens. This is one of those rare series I will buy all at once and listen to back-to-back. Usually I like to space them out so I don't get bored with the characters, but usually I don't bother writing reviews, either. It's a good "future earth" or "dystopian" or "urban fantasy" type story. Can't wait for my credits so I can get the next in the series!
While it wasn't my favorite of Neil Gaiman's stories, still it was a story by Neil Gaiman and therefore very enjoyable. I loved the narrator, particularly when he voiced Spider. He continually reminded me of Eddie Murphy. My one complaint, which isn't really much of a complaint, is that his one voice for one of the elderly ladies hurt my ears when I was wearing headphones; it was just the right pitch.
Yes, it was full of dark humor and sarcasm.
His voice is perfect for the main character, Mike. He has a very dry tone that perfectly compliments Mike's sarcasm.
I liked this one so much, I immediately bought the next and the next until I had bought (and listened to) all four that are available on audio. I wish I could find more to read that is similar.
This one was not so great. I had trouble finishing it and that's even with fast forwarding through the sex scenes.
The plot jumped around between three or four different story lines and was not difficult to follow, but it wasn't enjoyable the way it kept skipping around. The characters of John Matthew and Xhex weren't true to their characters in previous novels at all. A reviewer on Amazon said, "Complicated subplots" and it's true.
Jim Frangione is a decent narrator but there were HUGE gaps in time when he read and a few times I could hear the director or someone else in the background. That was actually kinda cool in a way though.
I think I'm going to stop listening to this series now. It's just not enjoyable to me anymore.
Maybe it's because I have a good dog, but I thought this was a fantastic story. The narrator did such a fantastic job voicing the dog, I was completely engrossed. Well worth the credit and the time to listen to this beautiful tale.
