I have not read the print edition, but I greatly enjoyed the full cast in this audio edition. The characters were full of life and the interactions were perfect.
I liked the clues that were given about characters and symbols without actually telling you directly.
I enjoyed the scene where Shadow visited the underworld. It was a turning point in his character.
Yes. Definitely. I finished this book very quickly, carrying my audio device around with me for chores.
Yes. This is a great novel. I wish Stieg Larsson had written more than this trilogy.
I like all the underlying messages about abuse towards women...ways that people don't commonly think about.
I almost did. Hard to stop.
I would listen to this novel again in the future. It is not like Pride and Prejudice which I could pick up and start again immediately upon finishing; however, the story is engaging and features beloved characters.
My biggest complaint is that Elizabeth's character in this novel is much more two dimensional than in Austen's original. The primary character is Darcy, but we here a lot from Elizabeth too and some of her fire and passion is missing in this story.
I enjoyed the scenes early in the novel where Elizabeth recapped her past and compared to her current position. Hearing about the past from her new perspective was nice.
I enjoyed the final scene...read it to understand.
The first half of this novel was very engaging and descriptive. I enjoyed every moment listening. The details were vivid and interesting and the ideas were imaginative. The second half unraveled some of the mystery of the first half, but then left me restless to get to the end.
Possibly. I think the novel was too long for the story, so I might consider trying a shorter novel.
This is the first performance I have heard from these narrators. I enjoyed them very much and felt their range of voices was convincing.
I can not imagine this as a movie or series that would not fizzle part way through.
