Oh most certainly yes!
I'd like to avoid spoilers but the end kinda left thinking "oh, ok and now we continue on" only to suddenly have Mr. Card telling his afterward.
again.. this just seems to be asking for spoilers!
I think it was a great story and a must read for fans of the series, but even the author pointed out it was a short book in the afterward and that his goal was to make a short book to make it more affordable. Unfortunately, 1 credit is one credit and I probably should have just read physical book for this one.
the book iself is obviously in that guilty pleasure category and fits the bill well. However I was often straining to hear the reader. The production team needs to realize that just because the characters are being quiet doesn't mean the volume of the book needs to as well.
It's been a while since I've read some good sci-fi, and there is no doubt that this fits the bill. This book is first in it's series and develops a rich universe. Best of all, it builds that universe leaving you interested in reading further along without making you fell like you only bought half a book.
too many characters with similar names early on, and the explicit depiction of rape early on put it over the top.
the reader kept changing volumes dropping into a whisper making it impossible to understand him and then getting plenty loud when describing rape scenes
it's a great start of a story, the magic system is interesting and keeps you thinking.
yes, similarly excellent reading
since it seems to stop just as the story gets going, uh..ya...
definitely a good read, just wish the next one was available.
Stephen King should stick to writing. I'm sorry to say his narration was terrible! As an example, though I know he wrote it, I can't imagine he was saying his own character's last name remotely correctly. "Doo-chez-knee". brutal.This might have been forgivable is the story hadn't also been bland an pointless. It added absolutely nothing to the great story arc he had already created. He should have left the one book/series he has ever managed to write an ending for alone...
The previous narrator (I'm sorry I'm terrible with names!). Even though the previous narrator was a stand in for the gentle man who narrated the rest of the series (due to an unfortunate situation) he did a great job.
Nope. Need to look into the audible refund program. This book was the cash grab that I've heard so many times Mr. King is famous for but that I had not really experienced until now.
I realize this is likely falling on deaf ears and too late change. But the main reason I was going to get this as an audiobook was James Marsters. Though I believe John Glover would be good for other books (he's clearly skilled) this has ruined the tone of the book for me. I believe someone above put it best. James made it sound as though Dresden was recounting rather than reading a book.
I have bought every other entry in this through Audbile but I'll be moving to the book for this one I think.
