I really enjoyed this audiobook. The reader did a good job, and the story is one of those quick-paced, don't-want-to-put-it-down books that Koontz does so well. A good blend of mystery and supernatural with well-developed characters.
The story isn't bad at all and I wish I had read it instead of listening to this audiobook. The narrator is just not good. His female voices in particular sound really bad, more like a joke than anything else. I will be sure to avoid this narrator from here on out.
Larry Correia has become one of my favorite writers because of his Monster Hunter International and Warbound series. I can't recommend them highly enough. Great characters, good pacing, interesting storylines, there's just so much to enjoy. The narrators, Oliver Wyman for MHI and Bronson Pinchot for Warbound, are really excellent and make the series come alive.
Great book, true to the characters. Having such a difference in narration was very jarring for me. If I had realized that Titus Welliver wasn't the reader for this book I would have opted for a printed copy. It really makes the book less appealing.
This was not what I was expecting and I was very pleased. Great characters an dialogues, a good fast moving story. Bronson Pinchot surprised me and is now one of my favorite narrators. If you like noir, thrillers, interesting magic systems, and slightly alternate universes you will adore this series.
This was the first book of Nora Roberts for me that wasn't from her Eve Dallas series. It was a good choice! The characters are very well rounded and interesting and the story was quite good. I was sort of expecting a lot of romance novel cliches and was happy to find an interesting original story. Patricia Daniels does a fine job reading the book.
I was really pleased with' Ironhorse.' Robert Knott picks up the threads of Cole and Hitch's story and does a fine job. Parker fans that are nervous about the new writers taking over the established characters will be glad to know that Mr. Knott was a great choice for this series. Titus Welliver brings the characters and action to life with his usual flair. I can't imagine listening to anyone else reading the "Appaloosa" books.
I would recommend Spellbound and the other books in the Grimnoir Chronicles to anyone looking for a new, interesting series. The story is very good, the characters are memorable, and the way magic works in this universe is novel. Bronson Pinchot is an -excellent- story teller.
Richard Ferrone does a great job of bringing the 'Prey' books to life. 'Rules' is a very good story on its own and does a good job of setting up the characters for what evolved into a long running series. It's fast-paced, smart, and the characters are the sort you want to revisit.
Intricate, interesting, entertaining
I really enjoy the way John Sandford uses his characters. Whatever action they take always seems exactly right, they never behave out of character.
I can't imagine hearing anyone else read a Virgil Flowers book. His performance is excellent and his voices seem exactly right, even for characters I've read about in other books by Sandford.
