Oh, tough question, right at the very top next to the other gems in this series.
Sirki, the East Indian Giant. Sirki while physically imposing, was quite intelligent and seemed to possess an incredible amount of discipline. He was the most fitting "second in command" to the all powerful Professor Fell.
Sirki. The Indian accent was unforgettable. Bellerini is a Master at his craft.
Matthew Corbett. Headstrong and stubborn Corbett knows no fear.
Book 5 cannot get here soon enough. Thank You Mr. McCammons for an incredible journey with so many memorable characters.
Yes. In fact, I'm almost sure to do so. The content stayed with me long after the last words were uttered.
Hollis. Hollis was a black and white type character and deviated very little from her objective. I think all people need a Hollis, someone to tell you the truth and not just what you want to hear.
I think Mr. Sawyer has created something very special in this work. I think it will stand the test of time and one day be mentioned in the same breath as Bradbury, Dick, Asimov, and of course Clarke. If fact I think this work passes all but Clarke and maybe 451.
No. But that applies to any audiobook. I like to digest them over time.
I never read or for that matter listened to anything by this author. His knowledge of the subject matter was incredible and I imagine well researched as I did not validate any of it. The level of detail that exists in our universe is extremely complex to say the least and Mr. Sawyer sparred no detail. Does GOD exist? I think he/she/it exist's as much as a bird, a breeze, a whisper, a wink, a sigh, a yawn, a moonlight walk, or a falling sparrow does. Did the Universe Create God? Did GOD preserve what he was and create people? I don't know but for don't think, not even for a second, this is all a coincidence. Finally, I'd like to think that something like cancer is a fly in the ointment of creation. Sawyer tackles this with a very fascinating analysis. Well done Mr. Sawyer this Sir, must be your masterpiece, not sure what you do for an encore but I will tune in. Thanks.
The narrator was absolutely perfect. Pitch, delivery, diction, transition were all perfect.
The analogies were numerous and incredibly thought provking.
No. First one.
Yes, I would have liked that
I never would have purchased this book had it not been $3.95 deal of the day thus leaving me to wonder how many other treasures like this one are out there. Thanks Audible keep the deals coming!
Very good suspense throughout.
The title of the book is wrong and never seemed to fit in my mind. Maybe Finding Natalie would have been better. As for the story the main character Jake Fischer seemed a bit obsessive.
**Spoiler** His escape from Fresh Start.
Book was only OK. I gave it four stars because I really liked Scott Brick as a narrator.
The pacing was perfect and the characters remember-able. I'll miss going up to the roof for a drink
Opening the door to 14.
1st listen. Porter was masterful and transitioned in and out of characters with remarkable fluidness.
***Spoiler Alert*** Veek and Nates first kiss.
I took a chance on this audio book based on the genre and the glowing reviews and I am glad I did. Clines is a very gifted writer who took the time to care for the characters he created. I will start on the Ex series next.
Hudson Greathouse. Not everyone knows a Matthew Corbett but everyone knows a Hudson Greathouse. Excellent character, please, please don't ever kill him!
The evolution of a very endearing character in that of Matthew Corbett as well as the introduction of new characters (Hudson Greathouse and Berry Grigsby in particular).
Matthews rapier training with Hudson.
The problem solver stops for no one loonie.
More than excited to dive into the world of Mister Slaughter.
I do not know. I did not read the print version. Bellerani's performance was absolutely amazing so I imagine just reading it pales in comparison.
So many, but I'll go with the rising tension between Sarkholm, Mathew and the Magistrate in the very beginning also noted was Mathew being hypnotized in Lancaster's doorway (very intense), oh and Lancaster's song of the rat (who can forget that).
Sarkholm (Rough,Frightening and downright mean). "Fancy you wanna look at her oyster basket". Still LMAO.
No. I relished sitting on my porch an hour at a time waiting for my night bird to deliver.
My first McCammon book. I was ecstatic to find there still four more books in the series, though I don't know how he can top the first. The characters lingers long after Bellarini uttered the last words and Fount Royal is still vivid and alive in my mind. Mr. Green, Rachcel, schucks even Bidwell still have me wondering how their lives will pay out as I'm sure Fount Royal will thrive in the future. I thought Mr. Winston's betrayal of Bidwell did not really fit into the narrative nor did Corbet's assiduity that he would be loyal in the future. AS William Blake said, "It is easier to forgive an enemy than it is a friend."
