I liked the idea behind the magic, and the setting was really interesting. But the ending didn't quite work for me. I didn't like the narrator so much either. His voice for the main character sounded too much like Forest Gump.
This was really good. But it wasn't able to match the "epicness" of the second book. Also some of the characters i really enjoyed from the 3rd book were underused. I felt that the ending felt really rushed. I don't really understand why each book in the series is getting shorter and shorter.
This installment follows a a very different form from the previous books, and i actually preferred it. I was somewhat disappointed that the author returned to 1st person in the next book in the series.
As with each title in this series, this was a very fun read. While not quite as epic in scope as the second book, it does a much better job flushing out some of the background characters.
I would highly recommend this one.
Yes, and I already have. It's a fun and action paced series.
There is a part near the middle of the book where a place is attacked in a all-out undead assault, it was really awesome. The sheer creativity of the author in coming up with creatures was great.
I have only heard the first in this series, so I can't really compare.
Yes, I ended up listening to it nearly all the time.
It's in the bottom half, but at the top of that half.
I have already bought the rest of the series that is out so far. They are fun books, and he has a very good imagination. It's a great series for adults with childish imaginations.
He creates a distinct sound with each character that really brings them to life.
Several times the books made me hold my breath in anticipation, and had some impressive action set pieces.
The characters were all rich and interesting.
My favorite character is Crystal. She is one of the few really good people in the book.
I think that he did a great job creating all the characters.
The entire ending.
This is a great book for people who do not have a deep background in business. I am an educator, and I am looking into starting my own private school, and this book proved incredibly useful to me. I was able to learn all the basics I need to have the confidence to start my own business.
My only complaint is that every once a while, there would be repeated lines.
Hearing Hugo's marvelous prose come to life.
Jean Valjean's inner battle as he debates whether he should free the man how stands to be condemned in his place.
Great jobs bringing these characters to life.
It it were possible.
Not in this method of writing, they took what made WWZ an interesting and unique novel, stripped it and just wrote a multi-perspective novel.
It never really made good on its premises. The final battle was terribly anti-climactic and I didn't like the structure.
He captured all the characters well, and did a good job performing a very diverse cast.
I already know it will be a movie, I can see it being just as average as the book, with a very average cast.
If you liked this style I would suggest World War Z.
