This story was great, however the narration was absolutely painful. The main character is supposed to be a young teenager, freshman in high school young, and the narrator sounds about fifty. Another reviewer likened him to Robert Stack, and I whole heartedly concur with that comparasion. I really wish I had merely read the book and not listened to the audio version. But the story is still great.
This is one of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. I love how Wil Wheaton brings the world of Fables to life. The story is engaging and exciting. Well worth the credit.
Easily one of the best "zombie" books I've listened to. You get invested in the characters quickly. Maybe it's because I used to work in a bookstore and could almost see where Allison was originally trapped, but the detailed descriptions allowed me to visualize the story being played out. Truly enjoyable.
The Simon R. Green "Nightside" books are some of my favorites, so I was extremely excited to see that audiobooks were made of them. Marc Vietor is delicious as the uber cool John Taylor. A little Sam Spade, a little Harry Dresden: John Taylor is London's most magical detective. This first book is a great intoduction into the Nightside and the subsequent books delve deeper into the mystery that is John's past. I highly recommend all of these books as they are fun and exciting. Who wouldn't want to take a walk in the "Nightside"?
I loved this book, as it truly transends the "teen" genre, and the audio was brilliant. Iliana Kudushin was a wonderful narrator, giving a richness to the characters that was just as fufilling as the reading the book itself. Excellent.
