I am a huge fan of Leiber but this story neve caught me up. It was a lot of disjointed chapters with no main thread.
I have enjoyed the Mouser and Fafhrd but either the production or the story does not seem to lend itself to the audio format. I was hoping to like this but I am sorry I wasted a credit on it.
Well I have to say I am hooked on the Dresden Files. Grave peril is as good a neo pagan book as I have read.
If you are getting into the series for the first time please realize the first two books are crap. Not bad reads but compared to the rest of the series you can tell the change in voice, effort tone and quality.
If you are not going to stick it thorough the first two please start with the third book. you are not missing much and it will give you a fair example of his work.
Hope this helps.
Very good dialog it feels like this is real speech.
This is the worst book I have ever downloaded. It seems to be a bunch of out of copyright storys someone threw together and read in their basment
good zombie book
I enjoyed this book. I had read the hard copy of this several time but the audiobook still brought more.
The story is a classic and the voice actors were very good. It's a credit well spent.
The ending is one you never see coming. the details of life are what sells it
Great voice great job
Get Rich or Die!!
I liked the setting the reading and the range of peole who populate this world
every story had a little bit of a twist at the end.
the end of the world... which Quatrain is you...
Ex-heros starts you on this authors work read it all and hope for more.
I was hoping for a 2nd book after buying "Ex-Heros".
Have to say the second book is better than the first.
Audio production is great and the story takes my loved Heros into what could be a cliche' ridden direction, but instead it takes all I love about heros and zombies and gives them both a great new lease on life. It was awesome.
I may sound like a fool but after hard syfi, history, and bios,... this is all just great fun for me
I have listened to these books several times and keep enjoying them. Give this one a try. It stands alone if you have not read the first but if you hear this on you will have to read the first.
Thx again Mr. Clines
Ok, I am writing to recomend this book to anyone who can lose themselves in a new world.
I loved it.
It has a great mix of superheros, their origins, classic coming of age sections, along with the end of the world. I like the way zombies come to be.
I have read the second book as well and it only gets better.
If you are someone who likes to follow characters over more than one book I can reccomend this one for sure.
Full of realistic dialogue and some great pop culture references, this book says what we all would be thinking if the zombies started taking over.
I can’t recommend it enough
The cast gives a great audio performance and never crosses into the dreaded "Acting" that seems to hurt some audio books.
Great job Mr. Clines.
If you have only seen the movies then you really need to download this book.
It is well done and the story lends itself to the format. A great way to start your Ian Flemming addiction because once you start you have to read them all.
