I have to admit - I almost gave up on this one about 1/3 of the way through. But Im glad I stuck with it, because by the end I really liked it. The main character is an immortal who reminds me a lot of Duncan Mcleod of the Highlander TV series. The book has a nice plot and I really liked the characters. It's a little hard to follow at times because it jumps around in time so much, but it works. Jeff Steitzer does a really nice job with the audio.
I recommend this book, and plan on purchasing the second book in the series when it becomes available on Audible.
This was an excellent follow up to the first book in this series. It's easy to fall in love with the characters and root for them.. the action is fun and its's a good paced story.. there is a lot of room for growth and development of these characters... I look forward to the next one in the series!
This book is kinda mediocre. It's OK.. nothing wrong with it. A nice story with fun characters. I just can't say it's great in any way. Not a lot of great action. Not a lot of laugh out loud moments. Not a brilliant story. The reader sounds like he is in his 60's.. he's not bad but not great. The best I can say is that there are a lot of plot twists. If you have read all the really great books and are just looking for something to pass the time, this might work for ya....
Like all Time Travel books, this story falls apart if you start poking at it. But the author knows that and admits it up front.
That said, this series is very entertaining. The characters are lovable and that dialogue gave me a lot of chuckles and laughs. Luke Daniels is one of the elite book readers and he delivers his usual stellar performance.
I recommend this book!
The main question I ask myself about each book is: Did I become emotionally invested in the characters? So many books these days fail that test. I'm happy to say that this one meets that test with flying colors. Daniel Faust is a very likable protagonist.The book got me interested in the very beginning , and the story is riveting throughout..whatever the audible equivalent of "I couldn't put the book down" is, applies here.
If you are a fan of the Harry Dresden books, you will love this book. I can't wait for the next one in the series! I give this book my highest recommendation.
The story had enough twists and turns to keep me interested, but overall it's just not a great book. By the end of the book I realized I didn't like any of the characters. I knew how it was going to end, but didn't really care. This was a disappointment.
This book kept me chuckling the whole way through. If you like any of the other books in this series, you will love this one!
It's not a bad book, but it's just not a great book. I wanted to like it and stuck with it to about the 3/4 mark, but had to give up when I realized that I just don't care how it ends. The characters aren't really likable, the humor didn't make me laugh, there was no action, the back story was really boring. It just kinda wanders on and on. Others may like it but this book just didn't do it for me.
I remembered reading this book when I was a teenager. I'm glad I went back and listened to the audiobook. It's an absolute classic. One of the great series of all time. If you like the Fantasy genre, it's a must-read.
Artie's first book was pretty entertaining. His second book is just depressing and sad. He tells us that he was lying to us in the first book when he says he got his life together, but now he is telling the truth. But then at the end of the book he says he was lying earlier in the book.
Artie did not narrate his own book , and that was part of the problem. If he had, I might have laughed more, or at least understand when he was being sarcastic vs when he was lying.
The only value this book has it that it might help you understand the mind of any drug addict friends that you might have.
I'm a fan of Howard Stern and was a fan of Artie Lange. Until I read this... not, not so much.
You have to get past the amateur narration on this one to enjoy the story. There's a tiny bit of low hiss in the background - apparently they didn't have access to a soundproof studio, and the narrator has some odd long pauses and minor stumbles. Maybe I'm just spoiled, being used to pros like Luke Daniels and Oliver Wyman. Once you get past that, it's a mildly entertaining story. The Protagonist is interesting... a little like Kadrey's Sandman Slim. Only problem is that the author doesnt really give us any reason to like the Protagonist. That should be rule #1 of every book - give the readers a reason to root for your guy. If there's a second book in this series, I might check it out... If someone didn't talk me into giving Harry Dresden 4 books worth I might never had discovered the best series ever. I'll say this: this has potential to be something great.
