the latest Boone book
not one of my favorite readers
Just was kind of boring. The first one was 5 starts, but this just didn't really go anywhere.
Among my to picks
The immortal. Because of the introduction of strange creatures from legend.
Not other than this series. The narrator can make a mediocre book seem great and a great book seem mediocre. I have quit listening to a book because that I like the story line, but the narrator was so bad.
I read the entire series of books. Not all the books in the series were five star, but I got attached to the characters, and the narrator really brought them to life. I found that I missed the characters and had to purchase the next book. I have read books in a series before and after a the first few, I tend to lose interest, as sequels are not often that good. Between the authors' well researched story line, vivid writing (if sometimes too detailed and long winded for some minor parts, but still well written), and the narrators pace, and voices and inflections, it is an addictive series, well researched in fable and lore and legend, with interesting characters. You need to have an imagination and just let yourself get taken away by the story. Some reviews thought that it was too childish (NOT) and had glaring inconsistency's, but I did not find it so. The one example of the tree, the reviewer thought that the trees were the same, the tree in the first and last book, but the author explains that the trees were related, but not the same tree. If something doesn't add up, then re-read that part. I did a couple of times and found that it did make sense.
the narrator. He is one of the best that I have listened to. The narration makes or breaks an audible book. His charter voices, tone, and tempo keep the story going.
The story was funny, action, interesting, full of strange characters
No, I don't re-listen.
overall, I would recommend this book. I Drive from Reno to SF once a month and listen to a book while I drive. Very well read, which is SO important, interesting story, a little far fetched, but entertaining.
Yes. In time. Why? Because it ws entertaining.
Dan Simmons wrote great book that would compare to this. I forgot the name, but I think it had Summer in the title. It was about a group of kids, friends, an old school. That probably isn't real helpful, but maybe someone can help me out here and come up with the name.
The story was good, well written and the reader was very good. I have listened to books before where The reader ruins the book.
