By now I'm pretty sure you've already figured out that Brandon Sanderson did not dissapoint with this sequel. The book was great. This review is more about Micheal Kramer's performance.
I had some major issues with the narration. Matter of fact I can't listen to anything by Michael Kramer. His normal voice is pleasant enough, but as soon as he tries to switch between different characters all of them sound the same. Why does he insist on speaking with his lips tight!? What made this narration even more unbearable it's the emphasis he puts on all the "S" Which forces you to listen to the story on a very low setting.
Here are the different vocal ranges of Michael Kramer:
Men Voices : NASAL, constipated, muffled
Women Voices: NASAL, long time smokers
As far as Kate Reading goes, I'm not sure why everyone is lashing out on her. She's just performing the character as it was presented to her. Really, It's not her fault if Shelan is an idiot. Haha. I thought she did a great job. The one star rating does not reflect on Reading's performance.
Seriously though, this performance is in serious need of an editor.
WOW!!! What a great experience... Frank McCourt's Angela's Ashes is one of those books I can listen to over and over again. Don't let the title fool you. This is not one of those sad, depressing books. McCourt did a great job telling his childhood story with a lot of humor and wit. The movie version is lot more depressing though.
I don't think anyone else but Frank McCourt could of done this story justice by narrating it. Truly amazing!
This whole story could of been told in half the time if it wasn't for neverending history of Savannah Georgia and the introduction of a number of characters who had nothing to do with the story itself.
Jeff Woodman did a wonderful job with the narration. I especially enjoyed his rendition of the Lady Chablis. Made me laugh out loud a couple of time.
If you're looking for a short version of this story, you might want to stick with the movie instead.
By far one of the best autobiography books I've ever read. Janis did a wonderful job narrating the story, also hearing her sing was a wonderful touch.
I loved it so much, that after finishing the book I went on iTunes and purchased a couple of the songs.
Such a wonderful, fascinating story. I'm glad I took a chance on this book.
This book is so damn good, it should come with a warning. There's no way you can listen to the first season and not crave more.
The second season picks up right where the first one ended. The story gers better. New characters are introduced, and of course all the old favorites are back.
Best production EVER.
I found this gem in the surprise $4.95 Sale. Best money I've ever spent on Audible by far. After the first hour of listening to this book, I was hooked I couldn't put my iPod down. Season two and three are just as fun --Full of zombie gore, drama and of course the AWESOME sound effects. I cannot say enough good things about this book.
If you enjoy a good zombie book, this is definitely for you.
Solving an Algorithms master theorem in KIingon would've been much easier than trying to make sense of this conundrum.
Seems like an interesting story, but the "language" If you can call it that, kept throwing me off. The author tried to give the reader some type of definition to certain words but it only made it more confusing by using more made up words as an explaintion (if that makes any sense)
I'm not sure exactly which parts of the story had anything to do with Mathematical theories, except for some loose references to Geometry and other made up nonsense.
I really wanted to like the book, though.
It's sooooo hard being a middle class teenage white girl with a rich uncle.
Oooh the struggle!
What happens when you put Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Twilight, and True Blood together? Download and you'll find out.
The book itself is not so bad, but that awful Bristish/Aussie accent or whatever it is was nothing more than unbearable.
Some part of it was "kind of" funny (and I use the word funny loosely here). The rest of it was just annoying. I kept wating for some kind of big reveal or something interesting to happen at the end, unfortunately It never came together for me.
After reading the reviews, I was really looking forward to finally enjoy this book. Seems to me that every character in the story belong in some type of nut house, and the fact that it took place in a military setting makes the whole thing seem far-fetched and more confusing as to how any officers of the US Air Force would behave in such rediculous manner and get away with it?
