If William Dufris had just used his natural voice for John Carter. His false southern accent was too distracting to allow me to follow the reading. I had to download another version. So far, Scott Brick is the premier reader of the John Carter series. I wish Brick had read all the ERB works.
The writing is top-notch and typical ERB.
First of all, the narrator Micheal Page is at the top of his game. He could probably recite mathematical equations and make them seem like incredible literature. He is THAT good. Thank you Michael Page for bringing this fantastic book to my ears.
The book itself is a great, well written story. Joe Abercrombie continues his story of Black Dow, The Dog Man, Bremer dan Gorst, and a host of other familiar names (to those who have read the First Law series). This is a story of war, and sacrifice, and violence, and swords, and love, and incompetence, and back-stabbing, and death, and life, and pride, and mud, and water, and power, and berserkers, and cavalry, and shields, and and...Oh my just listen to it already. You will be happy you did.
Sean Barrett does a superb job of bringing to life this fictionalized first person account of Roger Lamb .
This is one of the very few first person accounts of an individual fighting in the American Revolutionary War. Even more rare is that this account is from a British Soldier.
Robert Graves has taken Roger Lamb's memoir and given it his "treatment" , turning it into excellent Historical Fiction. That said, it stays mostly true to the source material. The result is an outstanding account of the American Revolutionary War.
This is a top-notch Audible title. I heartily recommend it to anyone not just those interested in history.
This is a great, great story. It is gripping from beginning to end. One of the best audio books I've ever heard.
Steven Pacey is THE best reader I've heard, and I have listened to some truly great ones (Scott Brick, Tom Weiner, Nadia May, etc).
Steve bring the book to life like no other. He understands the nuances of the dialogue. It is as if he we putting on a top notch stage production. His reading of the book is incredible. He deserves an award.
So, my favorite character is Glokta. The way Steve Pacey reads Glokta's thoughts, in the way that Glokta would have spoken if had not been so mutilated, and then the way Steve Pacey reads Glokta's spoken words with the effects of his missing teeth coming into play is brilliant.
There were quite a few times where I would laugh or chuckle or even just smile as I was listening to it.
Awesome Book, AWESOME reader. Steve Pacey...You are THE BEST! Well done!!!
This version of Goodbye to All That is an utter disappointment. It is severely abridged, meaning that any coherence of story or context of actions is completely obliterated.
This book needs to be unabridged to fully appreciate its significance.
I would not have cut any. I would have added ALL back in. This book cannot be abridged or cut.
This version of Goodbye to All That is very, very disappointing. The only good thing is the reader, Martin jarvis, who does a great job reading the very limited material.
The audio edition is superb and completely on-par with the printed book.
The entire story is ripping, tense, and engrossing. I did not want this book to end.
His reading brings the characters to life. He is a brilliant reader.
Yes, in fact, as I stated earlier, I did not want it to end. I am now starting my second listening, having just completed the first one. It is that good!
This is the single best audio book I've ever had the pleasure of hearing. Aces!
