Most of these stories can be downloaded for free at booksshouldbefree com or librivox com, they are THAT old... Unless you're a historian, these stories are simply to old to be exciting./scary..
They could have chosen stories from the 1900's instead of the 1800's and found some that was at least a bit scary or action-packed, instead of this rubbish..
all of it exept maybe 1 or two stories. I must admit I couldnt bear to listen thru it all before I gave up..
Being a middle-aged man and not a teenager, I do like stories that doesn't necessarily have screaming action all the time, but listening to this audiobook is like an overdose of Valium - except, I guess the medicine wont irritate as much, as the lack of excitement in this book...
Sure I would, gonna do just that soon :)
Laughed so hard at the "bored guards - desperate sheep" part, but cant say much more without spoiling it for new readers.
Much much better than the Mercury serie!! This book is actually funny :D
Not from Kevin Stillwell :o I'd maybe give Robert Kroese another chance, but not likely
If this is funny, it must be in an American sense of the word, I dont get..? I found it boring and with only a few funny moments.
Not even if I got money for listening.. When he talks normally its fine, but he has zero talent for foreign accents (or any other accent), he just sound stupid when he tries.
If you consider buying this because of the recommendations - beware its NOTHING like Douglas Adams as someone wrote, no dry wit, intelligent humor or subtle jokes - its like Donald Duck funny..
I dont think so, Id worry it would contain more uninteresting religious theories..
There was a lot of cool stuff happening, but the last part where he speculated/researched about religion was so extremely boring I totally lost focus and couldn't get back in the mood from the first half of the story again :/
Mixed.. enjoyed 70%, got frustrated by the rest..
It wasnt so bad I returned it, but cant give it more than 2-3 stars
I would and I do, think Im on my 4th or 5th listen thru the serie now and its still funny :)
The rest of the Irondruid serie obviously.. Its quite its own style imo.
Yes, hard to pause it.
I'd recommend the whole Iron Druid Chronicles if you like this first book, they are great allthough I wasnt so pleased with part 3 "Hammered" - being Scandinavian and quite fond of Thor ;-)
Anyone who knows how to use recording software
Disappointment.. the pre-listen sounded so good and then the story is so bad, it was impossible to keep track of what was happening, because most of it was simply uninteresting :/
Worst is the poor quality of the recording, at some points you can hardly hear whats being said and the next moment, its like he's screaming in your ear - Really annoying :(
This is a story about people relations, nothing else.. the vampires could just as easily have been a pack of wild dogs, a virus or something else - just there to make an excuse for the plot. You dont get ANY inner dialogs from the so-called vampires. Think of it as a rip-off of game of thrones, only with indifferent characters nobody cares if survives or not.. If youre looking for a vampire-story, DONT buy this.!!
If you, like me, have enjoyed stories like The lord of the rings, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, The Iron druid Chronicles, Brisingr, Rangers Apprentice, The Gunslinger, Artemis Fowl, Percy Jackson, The Stormlight Archive and K.B.Andersen's The Devils Apprentice - Just to name my favorites..
- You'd probably agree, that good as they all are, there's not one that doesnt have some boring parts in them, when you think "Yeah yeah, get ooon with it.."
Well.. Not in this book! Nor in part 2 or 3.. I dont think I've ever heard/read such a long story and not for 1 minute thought "this part is lame fill and should have been skipped"
Im so impressed, I cant find words.. Just these: Buy it (and the two other books in the serie) and prepare for at lot of laughs, giggles and excitement..!
Impressive.. Joe Abercrombie really knows how to keep his readers glued to the book :o)
