I like when they have a woman do the female voices. McLarty can't pull off the female voices.
Audio books are better when there is a male and a female voice actor to take the specific gener roles.
Pissed me off that the main female character doesn't make it to the end of the book.
the book is fairly long. They go through the whole book, Puller does his investigation but answers very few questions about the case. Then all answers are just thrust upon the reader in a couple of chapters at the end, without explanation of how Puller gets to the answers.
I expected Puller to be some wonderful investigative mind, but he really is just middle of the road investigator with some nice special forces training. The way Baldacci ends the book with all the answers just given to the reader without explanation, causes Puller to not be that interesting of a character. I also found that he doesn't have any emotions until late in the book when he finally feels something towards Cole. Before that he seems like an uninteresting machine that doesn't care about anything but solving the case.
I can't even begin to say hot great this book was. Not only was the story entertaining and well thought out, but the conversations were hilarious. The characters were good, the villains sufficiently evil.
My only caution to those who are just starting out, learn some things about druids and mythology before you start or some of the characters won't make much sense to you.
My only complaint is that this book would have been nice to be much longer.
NO Character Advancement
Yes, though it doesn't really advance the main plot of the series, the story is still good.
Odd of course.
Again, I liked this book, but we learn nothing of Anna Marie or what she's there for. We learn nothing more of what Odd Thomas will have to do for her. The story is great, the narration great, but this book doesn't really fit in the series very well. It feels like a filler while we wait for the real next novel in the series where he gets back to telling us what matters.
