I got this for a school report and it was so much better to listen to it then read it. Seamus Heaney has a great voice for the part and was able to make even the parts where they are just listing Danish kings interesting.
This is a excellent audiobook. I found the mix of 19th century pomp and stuffy-ness to mix great with a blood and guts, Kung Foo, Zombie story. The dark humor is superbly done and the narration by Katherine Kellgren is possibly the best I have ever heard. I am definitely going to have to get the sequal next time I have a credit to spare.
He is a little light on discription and a little heavy on drawn out space battles but his premise is fantastic. The level of real life physics he brings to the story adds a level of depth lost in a lot of the adventure sci-fi genre. The narrator is amazing as well.
I really liked this book it was very suspenseful but in a fun way. The story sucks you in and really makes you care for the people. The narator also has the perfect voice for the part.
