No I would under no circumstances read another book by Danikon. HIs poor writing style combined with his appallingly bad science make the thing an obvious cash grab at best and a tragic piece of self delusion at worst.
Something that is either self admitted science fiction or real history, thanks so very much.
The narrator is robotic and irritating, not helping him sell the poor subject material,
The entire book
Seriously go read something better.
These books should not be read out of sequence but if you liked the first three you will not be disappointed by this one. It delivers consistent character growth and interesting plot development, in keeping with Martins style.
Dotrice is an excellent reader who captures the style perfectly.
Don't touch it until you've seen the other 3.
I strongly recommend this series for lovers of complex and highly developed narrative and characters. Anyone who does not love political drama or extremely long narratives and a lot of moral ambiguity should avoid it.
I would certainly listen to this book again. It is a rompin good magical whoddunit old time. I am not usually much of a mystery reader but I have been a Sci-fi and fantasy reader all my life. This has all the fun of a fantasy without the tragic foibles so many urban fantasies have nowadays. It's action packed, the characters are great, the plot is interesting and the writing is decent. James Marsters does a great job of narrating and all in all it's a very pleasurable experience.
Well, any of the other books in the series is worth listening to as well, but outside of that, it's sort of like Sherlock Holmes crossed with film noir crossed with Jonathan Strange and Mister Norell.
Harry Dresden, as the narrator certainly stands out the most.
Yes, I couldn't stand to turn it off. I think I burned through it in two days.
Lot's of fun.
Mark Twain is certainly a brilliant author but this book was written out of his usual style. I think his attempts to stay true to history tone down his usual narrative charm considerably. His voice shines through sometimes but it is often quite dry. Not one of his better works. I found MIchael Anthony wanting as a narrator. He had a very dull tone and took away from the book rather than adding to it.
Definitely not as good as the adventures of Huckleberry Finn which I found delightful when I listened to the Audible version.
He has a very dry and stilted narrative style which made the already odd cadence of the book much worse. I would avoid him in future.
I don't know, that's not why I listen to fiction.
This is a great book. The author gives a lot of really interesting information while managing to keep the book entertaining and readable. It helps give insight into the way we live and make decisions, which I found both interesting and useful.
