I grew up admiring Richard Branson and reading this makes me understand his vitality and drive. I really enjoyed listening to him read the book in particular as you could tell at points he was getting emotional. Now I just need to find another book just as good!
I love this sort of fiction, avercity, strength, weakness, torment, love. I read somewhere in the best fiction you do not consider it to be an unreal world; Suzanne has, in my opinion done this. I little different to the first two, but in many ways better as the characters were all there and we the reader get to enjoy the challenges they must face.
I spend a lot of time trying to find authors that I can enjoy the story, sure, but the speed of the story, the twists I did not see whilst still wanting to read science fiction or fantasy. Orson has done it all, it was a seed change for me in science fiction which can be sooo serious about itself. This just gets on with the story and a great story it is. Well done.
I really enjoyed this audio book, from the great humor to the great delivery by the reader. Magic does not have to be about a child growing into power, indeed it does not have to be in Hogwarts, this is set in Chicago and all the better and more enthralling for it. I will be getting the rest of the series, well now! I will also look out for the narrator who was one of the best I have listened to [and I have listened to a few now].
Well done...now where is the next book..
Gerber has done one great book E-myth Revisited, it is great, if you have a start up business read it. This, gets him some money and I don't mind too much as his first book was sooooo good. But really, don't bother unless you are looking for some crumb of inspiration, of which I guess there are a few.
Did I mention his other book was great.
Even if you have read this before, listen to Stephen King read what he rates as one of his favorite books. As the author there are parts of the journey he takes you on that I think only he could do. The characters are great, the way you build up a strong set of images from the story line, just great. My favorite of his and I have read about 10 of his books.
The interview at the end is also very interesting, he lets you into his head regarding making a great book.
