I started reading this story because a friend of mine recommended it while they were reading the second book of the series. I enjoyed the first book, and thought the second one was pretty good. At least as far as sequels go. When I told that friend that I was on the last one they gave me a funny look. I now understand why. Talk about a let down. I'm no writer, so I don't feel right about criticizing most of the time. But if you're going to write a trilogy at least put some effort into the ending. The story was going good until the very end of the book. It's like the author lost interest in writing and just gave up. Maybe she was trying to think of a good ending and realized that the ending doesn't matter. Because the people that have ready the other two will almost have to buy this one as well just to satisfy their curiosity. Be Advised, DO NOT START READING THIS TRILOGY!!!
I won't spoil anything, but the first of the book is really depressing. However, Justin Cronin picks it up after that and does a great job. It's a relief to know that not all authors think that vampires should glitter in the sun. I just started reading the next book "The Twelve" and cannot wait for the last one.
I was ok with Eddard Stark. I was a little upset at Rob and his Mom, but come on. There isn't going to be anyone left.
I read this book because of Peter Clines' other book "14". I have to say that I was not disappointed with this one. The story was short, fast paced, and had good characters. My only problem had to do with logistics. How have they survived so long without water? Maybe I missed something, but they are in L.A. I'm pretty sure the water stop running quickly without anyone keeping it going.
I liked the science (don't know if it's plausible, but I still liked the idea), but get out of Joe's head. I really like Ray Porter as a narrator, and I started listening to the Joe Ledger stories because he is the Narrator. However, he started driving me crazy when it would go on and on about Grace, how mad he was, and how he was going to shove his fist down someone's throat.
I got this book because of the awesome reviews it got. All I can say is that trust them. This book is short, but worth the credit or cash. Ray Porter does a great job narrating. The story is fast paced and keeps you wondering. Great characters and storyline.
I have recommended this book, but only to Sci-Fi fans. This book takes a while to get to the good stuff. So if you are already a fan of Sci-Fi this story may turn you off from the genre.
I would have to say Ozzie. Mostly because he was an honest character.
John Lee does a great job on the most part with keeping the characters separate. Some of the character voices drive me crazy, but at least I know who is talking without him saying "Ozzie said"
No way. It took me a week to get through the first part.
Yes, if they had read at least the first 4 books of the series. I think it fits well in the series, but just picking it up first could be a little confusing, and may throw the readers off of what the rest of the books are like.
Tim's travel through the endless forest
A lot of people are giving this book a bad review because Stephen King himself narrates it. I felt that he did a good job, and I loved the story. It was get back into a story about Roland and his ka-tet. It is odd how much you almost miss characters in a book when you are done reading it and you know the adventure is over. I think Mr. King did a great job in taking us back to Mid-World without messing up the rest of the story. I wouldn't mind if he did it a few more times.
