I had read it many years ago so this time I listened to it and it's till a good story.
This is the last one I own on audible and the price of the rest is kind of scary. But, I am listening to it via the library and I'm on book 7. I've loved every part including this one. Offbeat, fun and filled with many actual events in our world. I wish the series could of gone on forever. I'm not a big SK fan as I haven't read very many of his other than the tower series, wind through the keyhole (the first sk book I ever read) and 11/22/63 (the best so far). Give this series a chance but be prepared to experience something great but probably not what you expected. Keep an open mind.
I got started reading sk with 11-22-63 which I loved so I decided to see if there were any more titles of his that weren't specifically horror (something I've never been a fan of) so I started this series. (After I read the "Wind through the Keyhole" book that takes place between books 4 and 5. I'm currently on book 5 and put it away for now because to be honest I can see the writing on the wall for the ending and I'm just not ready to experience it yet. With SK he is so good at painting a picture and portraying characters that you can really start to like them no matter how flawed they might be.
This is the first book in the series and it wasn't easy to get into at first as it's fairly strange (and I love Sci-fi and fantasy books) but I stuck with it and ended up liking it a lot. (I've also listened to most of his books that I have read first). Great narration with all books up to 3 and I have the rest of the series in print waiting to get over my problem with seeing characters I love die (and here I am mostly guessing about the outcome) and it's silly in the extreme of me. He writes books that are so different and absorbing that I hate to miss one now but I've run into a couple I just didn't like and couldn't get into them far enough to stick with them. So you can find a great deal of variety in his subjects and maybe find one that you'll just love.
So, I should grow up, (I'm 57) and just take his writing as it comes but sometimes he's just too good at his craft.
I never realized how much fun being evil could be until I read this book via paperback and then I've listened to it several times and finally bought all 3 parts in hardcover. The author is very easy to read and great at the action. I liked all 3 parts but the first book will always be one of my favorite books and a classic in the making. The audio version includes sound effects which kind of threw me at first but it wasn't long before I started looking forward to them with each book. Great narration.
It's hard to come up with a criticism but the only thing I've ever balked at was how the last two parts seemed kind of rushed towards the ends of the books but if he ever came up with a part 4 I'd buy it without hesitation. So if you like Star Wars and action-oriented writing then you can't miss with this book.
I love the druid and his dog. It's easy and fun to read and get lost in. The narration is especially enjoyable.
Liked it alot but parts of it seems a bit weak but I'm no expert, just a reader/listener.
I enjoyed the book as it was a slice of real-life (if only from a celebrities point of view).
I like chesea and I loved her book recounting her one night stands but in this the story isn't as good and her narration is just not enjoyable.
Anyone with an interest in the after life would enjoy this book and even if you don't believe it might be worth your time.
I liked it very much and wish he could of gone on longer.
Well it was a 5 star listening experience. Craig Wasson is fantastic and joins Simon Prebble as one of the masters of narration.
All 3 and many more.
It was memorable and the narration just brought the story to perfection.
