The main story itself is really good and gripping. I wept for the dogs as the swam to the Isle of dogs, or when something bad happened to them or friends like 'The Todd'.
But it could have been a seven hour story not 15. The author really liked to go on tangents about something that didn't enhance the story at all; and if I wasn't so into what became of Rowf and Snitter I would have stopped listening entirely. There were points that I could only listen a half and hour at a time, because there was a flood over detail that had NOTHING to do with the story- like the editor fell asleep or something to that effect.
The main story on the other hand was REALLY good and when it was just about Rowf, Snitter, or the Todd. I could listen for hours because it was really well written and you really got into the minds of the animals.
But again you have to wade threw an hour(s) of...Fluff just to get to it.
Not to mention trying to understand what the reader was saying at times was hard. So trying to pay attention to the details that had nothing to do with the story was a real BORE, if not absolutely annoying.
Reader is Scottish, book is Scottish be warned. If you can't understand thick accents the book is not for you.
Would I recommend this book to others?
Yes and No. It's a good story, but it's not something you can listen to straight at work. You will have to put the book down ALOT. Also I wouldn't recommend reading it along with another book because of how detail heavy it is. So unless you have a few weeks set aside to pause alot I wouldn't recommend it.
Unless the book was REALLY good. As another review put it focuses a lot on the animals and the relationships they have in the book. There is also a good story aside from the expected sex.
Sometimes you just wanted the sex to be over with JUST to get back to the story. LOL.
Not to knock the dirty parts. I enjoyed those too.
I'm re-reading the book because I liked it so much.
If you like dark demonic slendermanish romance. This is the book for you!
I enjoyed this book as much as I enjoyed the movie. And I am surprised how much the two differ from each other!
Toothless sounds like Smegol from LoTR and is annoying. He is far from being cute like in the movie. He's also isn't a Nitemare. But that has less to do with the book then it does the movie.
Anyways fun book! I'd like to get the David Tennant one. I only got this version because it was on sale.
It was a great story; and even though I knew some spoilers from the internet they didn't play out in the way I expected them too. I didn't want to put the book down.
Peeta. I would love to have somebody that devoted to myself in life. He's just so adorable and sweet.
She's a great audio performer, and gives life to all the different characters well. I just happen to agree that she might have been slightly too old to voice Katniss who's only 17.
Y U KILL EVERYONE I LOVE????? Seriously get a box of tissues. This book made me cry worse then the first.
I even had that moment I had to stop and 'yell' at the book for killing somebody who I really wanted to live.
Can't wait to start on the third book. Y U DO THAT TO PEETA BOOK? Y?
