Yes, because the narration is so great. I always like it when the author of a autobiobraphy reads his own book, and Stephen Fry is my favorit narrator, so this was perfect in that sense.
I have listened to his reading of The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. This was just as good as that one.
No, but that is not necessary. You can take it in bits.
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.
Yes I think I would. It was relatively short and the narration was just wonderful.
The most interesting part was wondering if he would ever reach his goal, finding Kurtz. The least interesting part was what he saw along the way, I kind of zoned out during those parts.
Everything! I have listened to over 150 books on Audible, and this was by far the best narration ever. His tone of voice, his pace, everything was perfect.
Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men...
I could listen to anything Kenneth Branagh reads. He could read me the stock quotes and I would be riveted.
I thought that it was just too long. I lost interest so many times during my listen. So that is what I liked the least. I don't know what I liked the best, maybe Tom Cullen.
I was expecting something like it.
He was OK, he didn't do anything wrong.
I think it already has been made into a TV-show.
Some scary stuff
I like Danny and his ability to "shine". It is like a super power.
I liked the parts where Danny had visions of how things would turn out and what horrible things would happen.
I had seen the Kubrik movie many times and so I thought the book would be just like it, but it wasn't. Now I want to see the movie that Stephen King made.
Yes, but I don't know what. Maybe I would add some more trivia.
No, but I would recommend some of his earlier books, I thought that they were much more interesting.
He is OK
Not actually, but it might make me think differently about the big fish in small pond things.
I would change a lot. It is just like the other Robert Langdon books. Robert gets chased around some city in Europe with a woman sidekick. The people chasing them are always just one step behind but somehow Robert always escapes in the last second. Always!
It was not what I had expected. It was like science fiction almost. I though it was OK.
I didn't have any particular favorite.
Yes, but just because I like Tom Hanks as Robert Langdon.
Dan Brown needs to change his writing style. He constantly uses cliffhangers to end each chapter. It gets tiresome very quickly.
