Damn, Lee is a smart one, I liked the 7th book, but this one was much better..
I liked the ending a lot and specially the ...... well have a listen and you will know.
Anyways another good book in this series and looking forward for next week's book.
Jim Butcher did a fantastic job with this series.... I was shocked how good and enjoyable this book was.. I was really shocked... maybe it would have been best to explain a bit what Furies were so we don't get confused, but other than that I have really enjoyed this book.. and i can tell that the next books which i will start reading soon will be as good and even better.
Kate Reading is a fantastic narrator and she always does an amazing job in narrating characters and giving them life.. She is one of my favourite narrators as she did a great job in the way of kings and the wheel of times.
Really enjoyed this addition, much better than the 2nd book... but still all my points in the 2nd book still apply... too many familiar things with this world... too many....
But liked the development of the worded man and how he is coming with things... enjoyed the development of many characters and there choices...
The ending in this book was good... for some reason I assumed it was the last addition to the series but oh no, there will be more for sure..... wonder how things will be like next.
Again... it could have been much much better book....
This is such a good series. Brandon is really a gifted writer, so many different books, so many different ideas. Legion is just crazy!!! love all these characters, and wonder how the future of this series will be like.. In this book interesting character development (fake characters (or imagined characters) and the real one).. wonder how the next book will be like...
It must be not easy to have all these different personalities living in your mind and interacting with them... And just think of all the money our friend Steve is spending on all these different personalities when they join him... like the first class tickets in the last book.
Brandon Sanderson, bring the next book ASAP.... But first bring the 3rd addition of the Stormlight Archive... Can't wait.
This book was good, I have enjoyed it, you get to know the folks at the desert spear and tend to know their back story and their future plans... it does have a different start than the first book.. so you will be a bit confused thinking whats going on here...
More and more things got cleared up and you get to know the enemy more and more... You get to be with the warded man and he get to face his past.
Now lets talk about what i didn't like in this book and in series in general:
- This whole series is based in a time where please speak that fancy old english style like in the wheel of times and so on, but then all the sudden you find modern slangs here and there.. it gets really confusing... too many modern and current time words for it to be based in such a time.
- Those folks from the desert spear... those are the basic description of Arabic folks who live in the desert .. nothing unique about them, no imagination, the women wear Hijab like the desert folks and a man can have more than one wife and so on... other books tend to come up with weird cultures and unique ones, nothing based on real current culture.. I understand that some of you guys would say ohh but its built on a life after the modern current age, thats why the modern terms are there and thats why the cultures are so similar.. I don't buy that, if that was the case then the modern slang would have stayed rather than disappearing, and plenty of constructions would be there rather than disappearing completely.
Again, too many similar things to make this book unique and enjoyable .. love the imagination that authors tend to have, but sadly, it wasn't so vast in this series .
I had this book for months, but kept on postponing it.. Its really good.. Not as jaw dropping as other big epic books like the wheel of time... but it is a good series...
I think that this series could have been one of those long series with several books to build the characters and the story plot... i'm not saying it was fast in this book, but it could have been longer with more characters and plots..... There were so many chapters were the author jumped for few years...
The Warded Man is based in a world were demons exist and attack humans every single night. People defend themselves by using wards and hide.... A boy grows up hating how everyone hides and no one attack those demons...
In general, I have enjoyed reading this book, and the character build up was good... its ending was very well and made me jump and purchase the 2nd book and read it already.
Really didn't like how things went with Gaia.... it just was too short too sudden... what??? 5 books for only one page of action??? it was annoying... really annoying.
other than that, it wasn't a bad book.... i just do hate such buildups and then... well you will see...
It could have been better.
If you ask me "Did you like this addition", then I say Yes.
If you ask "Did you love it", then its no.
If you ask "Why?", I'll say because it could have been shorter, and the ending was really really slow.... didn't really like that.
But i do think it was book 2.5 more than 3 as it prepares you for the next chapter or part of this series. Let see how things become.
Love this series and all the characters. Its always good, never a bad or an ok addition to this series. Darynda Jones is a fantastic writer, and Charlie is one of my favourite characters in all the books i read.
So so so many things ... you start with a small small thing like a goldfish and there is something as big as a ....... well, i can't say, you need to read this book. But you really get to know how powerful Charlie is.... Charlie... if you are reading this, mmmmm... call me, got few requests
can't wait for the next book.
For every book i read, I feel sorry for Mike... He never gets a break.. NEVER!!!! so many many monsters here, some are really interesting.. and so many changes in the story plot.
New enemies and new team is in as well.
But the ending of this book was refreshing and happy, you guys will like it....
This zombie series is really one of my favourites, and Mark Tufo is doing a great job in this series and in others, Mike is a very interesting character.
Short story after Steelheart and it was really good... you get to see how life is like after steelheart, and what new problems rise afterwards..... Really laughed when few weird funny expressions came up. Really enjoyed this quick read and it was satisfying. Waiting for book 2 in this series.
