I haven't read the book, so I can't say. I can say that the narrator brought the story to life.
Hmmm. Edge of my seat? Engaged would be a better word, and I was thoroughly engaged throughout.
Nope. Though I did spend hours at a time listening quite happily. It's a longish listen, so the idea of one sitting (or, more accurately, one puttering) is daunting. I do think I finished it in less than three days.
But for the male narrator I would've given this five stars. Original storyline, chilling and thought-provoking. I loved it.
Anyone who isn't put off by the narrator's monotone.
I didn't get past the first 30 minutes.
If there had been any life in the reading at all.
I have to answer this based on having read the book years ago, for I could not listen for more than 30 minutes to this narrator. I loved the story. The scope. The characters. The drama.
This narrator speaks in an unbearable, unbroken monotone. Any variation in pitch and emphasis would have improved the performance.
I'm returning this book and one other by the same narrator. He may work for some, but not for me.
I have no idea. I could not get past the narration after the first hour, so I can't really comment on the story. If I could have left the Story and Overall categories unstarred, I would have.
Not able to comment.
I would have cast someone whose accent was less intrusive and who did not speak in a monotone.
Honestly, I couldn't tell.
I hate to be such a cranky pants, but it's very frustrating to have to miss an entire book because one of the narrators is so grating.
I liked the idea of and relationship between humans and their demons.
Most interesting: humans and demons. Least interesting: the faculty at Oxford.
Performance was vivid, fast-paced, and engaging. The cast did a great job without overacting.
Yes, it could be made into a movie. No idea who should be cast.
I felt cheated at the end. The story ended abruptly in the middle of an episode. This is not a trilogy so much as one story broken into three for, one guesses, book sales.
