Not enough character development. After 2.5 hrs of descriptions about the star ships, technology, etc. and no character development (or even dialog!) I still didn't know what the story was about and didn't care.
I really enjoyed the Star Force series and thought this would be similar. But, there was no dialog, no character development, nothing but tech, tech, tech. I don't mind getting up to speed on the technology of the time, but let's also have some people (or aliens) we get to know and care about.
I would compare Brisingr (and the whole Inheritance series) to Wheel of Time. This story is just as epic and has a rounded cast of characters, with more than one storyline at a time.
It had been a while since I listened to book 2 so I was a little leary about trying to pick the story back up in book 3. I need not have worried! The story does a good job of refreshing the listeners memory about things that happened in previous books without completely retelling the story. I was able to get right back into the story and move forward with the characters. I enjoyed this book very much and am looking forward the final segment.
Yes, I would. The story is interesting and fast paced. The characters are engaging and Oberon is awesome!
I enjoyed the character growth and seeing more development for the apprentice.
Yes, I did. He was good at portraying the various characters and bringing them to life.
I have enjoyed all the Iron Druid Chronicles books and eagerly await the next in the series! The characters continue to grow and that keeps the story-line fresh.
Ranks in the top 5.
Yes, I have listened to all the Chet and Bernie books. He is very easy to listen to and really brings the characters to life. I can 'see' Chet's expressions in my mind.
Yes! I can't get enough of Chet and Bernie.
I would recommend these books to anyone. I always enjoy the stories and this narrator is awesome. If you are comfortable with 'hearing' a dog's thoughts, these stories are so much fun!
Savannah, of course!
It's been a while since I read the first books in the series but this book made it easy to catch up and remember what had gone before.
Fun, exciting, fast paced
I thoroughly enjoyed the main character.
I would recommend this book, and in fact the whole series, to anyone. Way better than the JUMPER movie. All the books have been fun, fresh, interesting and compelling.
I enjoyed the book although it took a while to get used to the narrators voice.
Story was slow moving at first.
yes, story was slow moving in the beginning
I did see the movie. That was probably part of the problem with the narration...I had preconceived notions as to what the characters sounded like.
I am willing to listen to the next book in the series, even though I had a lukewarm reaction to this book. Part of the problem with seeing a movie before reading/listening to the book. I did enjoy the 2nd half of the book more than the first.
First book was so disappointing I didn't even try the 2nd book. Sorry I paid for it first!
This will teach me to purchase more than one book in a series until I've actually listened to it. I generally like series so I can have several books that tell the story in a continuing manner. However, the first book was so disappointing I didn't have any interest in the second. I'm sorry I purchased it before listening to the first one!
The narration makes or breaks an audiobook. The narrator for this book brought the charactors to life and made the story pop.
Davy's girlfriend was my favorite charactor. It was fun learning along with her what she could do and how.
Yes. I travel a lot for work each day and the time went by so fast due to this engaging story.
I am truly enjoying the Jumper series. The stories are interesting and the characters smart. I can't wait for the next one!
Right up there near the top.
This was my first exposure to Macleod Andrews. He was easy to listen to and follow. Very engaging.
I was hesitant about this book because I thought the movie was only so-so. But, I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed the story and the charactors so much more than the movie. The narration was perfect and made listening easy and the story engaging. I recommended this book to my daughter (she's 26) and she enjoyed it as much as I did.
