Absolutely love this story! The best of Star Trek adventure pacing with some real human emotions, feelings, and relationships! I hope there are more from AC Crispin and Nick Sullivan (who does a stellar job of both male and female!).
This was a good story ala Stephen King, and a great performance by the narrator Ray Porter. I would have given the story a higher rating of 4 starts if so much of it didn't actually remind me of King's Gunslinger series or even some others. The story was well written and kept me engaged the whole time, so it is worth the entertainment value.
Barely an hour into this, I feel bad for Matt until he continues his political puke blaming. He should be blaming the powerful oil and gas companies that have our government using our taxes for road (for cars, buses and trucks), instead of having invested it our public transportation system (which FYI is not subsidised like our roads for the car, gas and oil companies - by virtue of us, the tax payers, paying for)!
I paid for a book about recovery from an accident, not another way for this chum to make more money spewing complete garbage!
I was shocked by how bad this was with all the high marks. This would be a good action MOVIE, not a book. My goodness it was boring and filled with silly try-to-be-funny pokes at various politics. It started off OK, even though a little lame in the funny, but just proceeded to be way too long-winded. Mr Wyman is an excellent narrator, but the substance kind of stinks compared to David Weber's books, so he doesn't really help the story much.
Except for slow moving around the "girl and boy" sections, this is awesome - even better than the first book!
This is a truely great book - a fantastic story, interesting facts, and performed so very well!
I expected this to be better based on the reviews. It was really slow for more than the first 1/2 (which is quite a long time). The story was certainly interesting, once past the sluggishness, but comparisons to Jordan, Sanderson and Bujoid are off base.
All three of those (Sanderson to a lesser degree) build characters personalities, Rothfuss has not accomplished that with this book. I feel no attachment to any of Ruthfuss's characters, which has never been the case with the other authors mentioned. The comparison to Harry Potter was closer, although I think this (name of the wind) better that that (I only read the first one and found it too juvenile).
To me it seemed much more a childs book except I can't imaging children having the patience to read through such a slow book.
The reader Podehl, was totally fine.
I got the box set with Len Cariou as narrator and absolutely loved those three stories and the way they were told. I listened to the 1st Harry Bosch with Dick Hill as narrator and then this one. I just can't take it. I know some think he's great but he sounds cheesy and just like the character in Lee Child's books - they sound exactly the same.
Awesome stories, almost 28 hours, only one create - what more could anyone ask for!
This is a great book and story with wonderful characters. This is also one of the most depressing of King's books I have listened too. I think that is the horror of it.
