The concept behind the story was interesting and I wanted to like it, but it just didn't grab me.The episodic nature of the chapters wasn't for my tastes. Something would come up at the beginning of a chapter (usually a dangerous person or weapon who had never been mentioned before), it would be built up to be this huge obstacle that would be impossible to overcome, and by the end of the chapter it had been defeated with hardly any trouble. There was no real sense of danger because it became formulaic to the point of being humorous, an issue that could have been solved if any of those dangerous people/things had been mentioned at all before the chapter in which they were defeated.
It also had a very boring & predictable view of good & evil. There were too many characters who started to appear like they might have some depth, only to suddenly turn around with a "Nope, sorry, here's something cliche and SUPER evil!" The love story also felt much more juvenile than the rest of the story
Just about anyone. The author's voice didn't match Edwin's attitude at all, and many of his voices were painful (the majority of his female voices in particular were downright awful.) He also had very harsh "s" sounds that made half the characters sound like snakes. I think Alexis Denisof would have had a much better voice for this character.
I would say no. If someone was interested, I'd recommend the book first.
James Marsters does an amazing job with the narration, so I would highly recommend the audio edition over the print version.
He has a dynamic voice that is always entertaining, and there is never any confusion as to which character he is voicing at a given time.
The world in which the story takes place is well developed and interesting. I liked the way vampires were handled in the story as well. It ended leaving me wanting the next book.
