Yes, very entertaining, characters to care about.
The Sherlock Holmes series, about the same period, crime suspense, investigation.
Giving voice to the different characters makes you care more for them
Just the final chapters
I would like to find out what happens to the main characters of the series but if it continues to drag the way it does maybe I will only read the summaries in wikipedia; Roy Dotrice has not been to my liking since the first book, but I found the story interesting so I kept going, but his last deliver it's the worst of the four books I have listened to, I decided to skip book 4 due to the reviews of other members and glad I did, because I agree with their opinion for this book.
I wish the story would move, so much description of dressses or food but no action.
The women's voices are horrible, specially Deanerys sounds like a low born old woman nothing to do with "the most beautiful" queen in the whole world.
This book did need a lot of editing or maybe an abridge version would be much better avoiding needless descriptions or taking so much time introducing a new minor character instead of giving more time to the main characters, I want more of Jamie, Arya, only Jon and Tyrion get somewhere and Daenerys was such a smash in the previous books and now just sits and makes terrible decisions, a bit disappointing.
I loved The Strain, I listened to it several times, so I was waiting for this realease; I liked a lot but I still prefer the first book, I'm looking forward for the third installment and find out how Dr. Goodweather copes with the challenge.
I miss Ron Perlman,a work by Del Toro is not complete without him.
I loved the book, I did not know what to expect so it was a wonderful surprise, never boring always intriguing and very interesting; loved the characters. I already bought Kafka on the Shore and Norwegian Wood, can't wait to start listening.
The tibetan stories are excellent but the comentator doesn't leave room to draw the reader's own conclusions it offers a pont of view even before the story is finished, is very annoying, I stopped listening.
Very enjoyable, excellent characters and good messages for young readers and older too. The narrator was also very good.
At first I found the violence, especially toward women, hard to listen to, but the plot is very good in the final balance.
After reading reading most of the series, 2 last books pending, this is my favorite one, I have listened several times and enjoyed more each time, funny and intriguing.
Being fan of Umberto Eco I expect a lot of historical novels, this one is only entertaining but I kept thinking it would exploit more on some of the subjects, like the historical background or maybe the magical theme or something about reincarnation, so it would not end up too superficial; the narrator's voice changes in some chapters, it sounds like a total different person.
A modern Bram Stroker Dracula and more, excellent!!
