The voice acting and story combined with the story telling and reader's ability to make characters distinct.
Moby Dick, Treasure Island, Howl's Moving Castle, and Kidnapped to name a few. The story blends various aspects and tropes of these ideological worlds and settings and makes a comparison to and contrast to each. Its very enjoyable how there are hints of other stories and yet is highly distinctive and very well written.
When Sham's bat attacks thugs for the first time as a little mouse-sized guardian.
Yes and more so!
Recommended for anyone who loves adventure stories, this book really feels like that and more. It is very Diesel Punk and Scavenger World combined but the over all story, setting, and even the very description the author used make me HOPE for a sequel...or a movie adaption sometime soon :) China's other books are often set in dystopia or cyber punk style futures/worlds but this one is very refreshing and harkens the reader back to the classic adventures like previously mentioned Moby Dick, Huckleberry Finn, Thom Sawyer, and other similar adventure tales.
The concept of how Madison Avery was both living and unliving at the same time. Oh and her angel companion who bugs her through out the story to be a 'good' person.
Near the start of the story where Madison and her 'guardian' angel get on a boat to save the soul of an innocent from being unfairly reaped.
She really brings Madison Avery and other characters to life with distinct personalities and moods.
Adventure Classic Humorous
Several descriptions of internal character monologues along with action sequences and descriptions.
Yes, its a great performance as always.
The opening with Anna's past being described really made me feel sad and sorry for the abuse she went through but Charles being there for her uplifted the mood in an instant and set the tone for the rest of the book.
Great way to spend a few hours - James Marsters did a great performance and made the main character come to life and even imitates the character's frustrations, angst, and joy.
I would be willing to try more Jim Butcher books as the story is very intense and captivating.
He brings the character to life.
It inspired me to try and finish my own novel.
