Absolutely I would.
Richard Ferrone reads like a bandit.
Although all were great, of course the best was alpha male Wolph Lonetree.
There were some jaw dropping moments, moments I giggled, and yes, some moments that actually managed to bring tears to my eyes.
Richard Ferrone could read my grocery shopping list and make it sound sexy, dangerous, and intense! With a story of this caliber, he rocks it completely. In spite of the silly concept of an "English viscount savage half-breed" hooking up with his soul mate, a half noble Scotswoman he's wanted since she was 15 in a very Thorn Birds kind of way, I was taken in by this story and could not put down my mp3 player for the entire 10+ hours. If you don't like the anti feminist aspects of historical romance, there are damsel in distress moments, but the main character proves herself as well. I lost sleep because I had to finish listening this story, work the next day be darned.
the story has been stuck in my head for many years, since I heard a review of it on NPR I think... I read it and for some reason, loved it.
Not sure if there is any comparison, because the main character is basically immortal, elementally symbolic, part animal, part man, which is what makes him so fascinating. There aren't many stories like that.
His voice is at times a little melodramatic, but he's a thing of Greek myth, so it's fitting. Other times, his voice is down home country American. Again, it's fitting.
At one point, we are told that the Minotaur doesn't like to talk, because he's embarassed of his voice, so he does alot of expressive grunting and one syllable responses. Talking isn't his thing, but he's very good at understanding others, expert at fixing things and mechanic work. He's afraid of dogs and avoids confrontation, but his character has the power to take out anybody he wants. Love it.
Great book I read over and over again.
Patton's voice rocks and his storytelling ability is such that even a lame story SOUNDS interesting enough to keep listening and remember.
possibly. this memior hodgepodge thing was definitely... weird.
Descriptions of childhood and early performance experiences were my favorite. He was so normal and down to earth, I could relate.
no, not really. It was nice listening a little at a time as I took walks with my dog.
now I know how to play D and D. Thanks, Patton.
