The Gray Man
The writing didn't let the performer to perform
Maybe I'm unfair since I couldn't get passed the first hour.
If you like extraordinary detail of minutia, particularly arms related, this is the book for you. if you like endless descriptions of battle scenes this is the book for you. If you like plots as complex as TV shows this is the book for you.
What a waste of a talented narrator. I would love to listen to him in other books.
The story has so much mundane investigation detail it puts you to sleep. Moved forward with the pace of a snail. May develop, but watching the grass grow held more fascination.
The narrator had a monotone delivery. No change of voice for any character. Annoying voice. Wouldn't take this one for free.
Good character development, particularly for the two key protagonists. Unique and intriguing environment and characters. First person perspective always better. Flat, simple minded plot. Superb narration with clear distinguishing voices for multiple characters.
Strong characters, novel re-write of history, unique alternative universe, all the threads pulled together, yet clearly leads to sequels.
Fay was my favorite character because of her strength, thirst for knowledge, growing powers, innocence.
Pinchot's performance was exceptionally fine with him creating new appropriate voices for each of many characters
Belabored description of fight scenes that grows tiresome
Yes. Relaxing entertainment after staring at a computer screen all day.
The characterization of the protagonist, evolving plot, and the imaginative world of magic.
More vivid picturization of the background.
The dialog is always amusing as is the protagonist's sardonic view of the world.
I find audible books heavy on dialog the most entertaining. The ability of the reader to change voices so the individual characters are more readily recognizable is also a plus. Masters is good, but does not excel at this.
