I liked the story and the characters. Strike and Robin make a great team and I am looking forward to more books and see their work evolve.
I think the most memorable part was when Strike entered the house and found the body.
Strike was my favorite, but that is understandable, since he is the main character. Another good charcter was Christian Fischer.
The idea was kind of cool, that there is a government agency collecting scientific advances that would be too early to introduce to the world. Everything else was dull.
I would recommend Suarez's first book Daemon, not any of his other books.
I have read and listened to all of Daniel Suarez's books and they keep getting worse. The first book Daemon was great, then the books started getting more boring by each book released.It is also very irritating that the resolution is so short. The book is almost 14 hours long. The tensions builds up during the whole book and then the end and conclusion is something like 15 minutes. It is like Suarez has thought about the beginning and middle but not the end. Don't just give me the "they lived happily ever after" ending, give me something more.
I had no idea that Elijah Wood was such a good voice actor. Sometimes I forgot that it was him. I had to remind myself sometimes that it was actually Elijah and not the slave Jim.
The best part was them trying to bust out Jim from the Phelps' and Tom coming up with all the crazy ideas to make it match books he had read. The least interesting part was some of the stories about the King and the Duke.
I tried reading it on my Kindle but it was quite difficult and slow just because of the old style of writing and of the slang used. Elijah did it flawlessly.
It is one of the best audio books that I have ever listened to.
My favorite part was when he was growing potatoes on Mars. That just seemed like a crazy idea, but he got really in to it.
I liked the narrator best, he always does a good job and really acts out the characters. The thing i liked the least was the story which was just like the other books.
Yes this is the third Dresden book I listen to, since it is the third in the series. They are all structured the same. Harry is in trouble, Harry doesn't know why, Harry gets hurt, Harry fights, Harry finds out who is behind all the trouble, Harry wins.
He becomes Harry and really acts out his emotions.
Yes I would, but I would recommend the audiobook, not the print version, simply because of the narration.
It had an air about it, it is hard to put my finger on, but I liked the atmosphere. The characters were interesting, the story was good and had a nice pace.
Yes I have listened to him reading Neil Gaiman's American Gods and that was also great.
Maybe, if the subject was interesting enough.
If that friend was really interested in the subject I would recommend it, but for someone wanting some history of New York City I think there are other books that are more interesting.
There was nothing special bout the narrator.
It reminded me a bit about the movie Gangs of New York.
The best thing was the narrator, Tim Curry. I love his voice and he is a perfect narrator. The part I liked the least was the part when they were traveling from Germany and up until they found the entrance of the cave, that felt like just a long boring wait.
It was what I had expected, no surprises really.
I would say the professor. Tim Curry makes him sound crazy and excentic.
Not really a book, but maybe some pages about other travelers following in their footsteps later on and how it went for them.
No, there are other Stephen King books that are better.
No, I think that they should listen to other Stephen King books before, like The Shining for example. I listened to this one because it is part of the Dark Tower saga in some way and I want to listen to them all.
The narrator that you hear when you listen to the sample is not the "real" narrator who reads the rest of the book. What you hear is Stephen King himself reading the preface.
I think that I will give the thirde Dresden book a try, because I have read in reviews that it starts getting better by the third book.
I have listened to the first Dresden book, and that one had a better story.
He brings Harry Dresden to life and acts him out very well, better than I would have done in my head.
