The writing was so vivid, you could taste the fear in the air along with the story characters.
Will Henry, and secretly, Kearns
When they ambush the Anthropophagi pack
Throughout the book the relationship between Will and the Doctor evokes both anger and compassion
Although at times sickening in the decriptions of the horrors, its a verbal car crash that you can not turn away from.
The narration by Bronson Pinchot is outstanding, I had to go back and look if it was THAT Bronson Pinchot. He makes an already mesmerizing story Ultra-mesmerizing
Nathaniel Cade, he is a GOOD vampire, what else do you need to know?
His pacing is perfect, he distinguishes each character without tricks, he is the voice that anyone would want for their own internal narrator if they were reading it themselves
The ending, in the epilogue (not giving that away)
Bronson Pinchot should narrate of every other audible book, okay, maybe that is overdoing it, but he should take turns with John Lee, Pete Bradbury and Ron Perlman. The Nathaniel Cade series is not the typical "Twilight" spawned romantic vampire drivel being churned out for pubescent goth girls. This is a story with intelligence that you can sink your teeth into.
The is the first time the movie version got me interested in reading the book, notmally it is the other way around, turns out this is the right way, as the movie will always disappoint after the book, but the book only shines brighter and brings out even more depth after liking a movie.
The characters are so vivid, and you hate the bad guys (from which there are many) and want to stand up and cheer for Lisbeth Salander when she dishes out their just deserts.
I immediately started the second, then finished the third installment of the trilogy. Bing, bang, boom, couldn't stop listening.
