I don't usually write reviews, but I felt like I had to for this book. I liked the story, I really did. But it was hard to listen to when I'd been so accustomed to James Marters' voice for so many books. I'm glad to see that they brought him back for the next book in the series. I already have that one on pre-order.
John Glover wasn't bad, he was actually pretty good. And I'd be willing to listen to other books narrated by him, but it just wasn't the same without James' unique inflections. It was a distraction from what is actually a pretty good storyline.
So, I guess my recommendation is to listen for at least a few chapters to get used to John's voice, and get into the story, and know that things will go back to normal on the next book.
I'm new to Gaiman's work. I've read Neverwhere, and now I've listened to American Gods. I liked Neverwhere, but I wasn't sure I loved it. But I loved American Gods. The storytelling language is vivid and colorful, and the characters are interesting. I would love to get to know them all better. I liked the full cast production, the voices for the characters helped the flow of the book. And hearing Mr Gaiman's voice himself doing the "Coming to America" stories along the way was a delight. Highly recommend.
I LOVED this book. Luke Daniels is great, and the story is fun and entertaining. It's not heavy literature, it's a light, fun ride. Some of the plot points were a little too contrived and convenient, but it's still and entertaining listen. The voices that Luke Daniels does are perfect. I can't wait to listen to more of this series!
First, I was so happy to hear James' voice as Harry again! Second, the story was fantastic. I wanted to hurry up and listen, but I also didn't want it to end. Can't wait for the next book!
