I liked that the character built up over time. This is really more like three 'adventures' for the hero of the book, from the time he first gets his supernatural 'powers' to his knowing more about them and helping others.
Don't really know.
The readers were pretty good at changing their voices to match the characters, but I couldn't help thinking that one of the 'evil nurses' was a giant frog!
I could enjoy it in one sitting.
Hope the series keeps going. I bought Volume 2 to listen to next.
Yes, if they were interested in hearing about the German view of a typical soldier in WWII.
Probably not. He doesn't provide enough details for me.
There was only one character--the guy who wrote the book.
Sort of. I listened till the end.
Not enough details. Too many "high level" observations. Like just saying "We fought Russia" instead of telling why and how.
Really damn interesting.
The story told of many details about day to day life in the Union Army that I didn't know. Interesting stuff.
A decent tone of voice.
It's not really a good book for a film, unless it was a documentary.
The story was predictable and plodded along.
Sort of. I'm not in the mood for a story that just goes on and on and on without a payout.
Most of the book.
Maybe someone will like it.
Yes, because it's like listening to a guy you know tell a story. He talks about everyday stuff that you won't hear about in the history books. Like the time they had to destroy a big cache of food, and each took a slab of bacon and stuck it on their bayonet to carry with theme.
Noting stood out, all good.
Regular Nothing Special
No, just found it interesting.
Nope. Listen to it - pretty interesting.
It was time "OK" spent. The story line is no longer as fresh or novel as it used to be.
Most interesting was a certain concept about an island in Lake Michigan. Least interesting? Lots and lots of dialoge about the winter and summer "ladies".
God no. It would be boring as hell.
The earlier books in the series were way better.
It took a long time to figure out what the monster was, and how to try and defeat it. Koontz gave clues, but not obvious ones. Made the story more interesting.
The pace at which it developed.
When the were talking to the monster via computer terminals.
I'd take the English guy who wrote the book (book title "The Ancient Enemy")
Good, solid Koontz book. You can't go wrong.
It would have been better for me if the story line was stronger. Off to a great start, then I lost interest.
Keep the story line at a more active level. It doesn't work for me when it opens with a "bang" then peters out to mundane details.
Yeah, his voice was OK.
Sorry I bought it. I was expecting more.
More action. Less character building.
No, I still like end of the world stuff.
Yes, the characters were all different, but that was most of the story. I couldn't finish it.
Way to slow moving for me. Gave up about 1/3 of the way through.
Real surprise endiing
You didn't even have a clue what was going on until pretty far in the story. It was fun to discover clues along with the main character.
Easir to listen than to read sometimes.
What's really going on?
It was time well spent. The story was different enough, and I liked the performance.
Yes, I would try another one from him.
It all blends together, but it kept up a good pace.
You'll like it. It's entertaining.
