Great character interaction!
That I did not like the main character! Its a good thing when the characters are either loved or hated. The writer has done their job! I hated the main character for being rebellious, whiny, foolish, and troublesome.
Neither! No extreme reaction, except to the ending when the "judge" shows up! Sequel?
MOST DEFINITELY. . ..EXCEPT I HAVENT READ THE PRINT VERSION, BUT THE AUDIO PROVIDES THE OPPORTUNITY TO DEVELOP CHARACTER IDENTITY BY VOICE, ACCENTS, (IE RILEY AND DATU)!
I LISTENED TO ALL THREE (AND IMPATIENTLY WAITING FOR SERIES 4) BUT THE MOST MEMORABLE IS DATU'S CAPTURE IN THE STADIUM AND THE DEATH OF SAMANTHA. SHE PLAYS SUCH A SHORT ROLE, BUT IMMEDIATELY SHE CAPTURES THE SPIRIT OF THE WHOLE BOOK!
THIS IS THE FIRST AND THIS ONE INSPIRED ME TO PURCHASE MORE DRAMATIZED!
DON'T KNOW BUT SOMETHING ABOUT SAUL!!!!
SAUL IS STUBBORN, DOESN'T LISTEN, HEAD STRONG, YET HE IS A SUPER SOLDIER! I TOO SERVED OVERSEAS AND LOVE HIS CHARACTER! NOW ON THE BATTLEFIELD WITH A SOLDIER LIKE THAT I WOULD PROBABLY PUNCH HIM IN THE FACE, BUT HE GETS THE JOB DONE AND DOES NOT OVERTHINK IT! SKILLzzz!
Yes. Except, there were so many juxtaposing storylines that I was hoping to hear more of the main character development.
None. It has its own life unlike the other books I have listened to.
Yes. She is a good reader.
For the most part, Yes.
The recording of the chapters kept cutting short. Many of the chapters ended before the reader stopped reading causing the listener to not hear the final words of those chapters. That was unnerving!
The concept alone. A clone trying to find the killer of its prime. Not to mention the subtle twist that could throw you off of the plot!
Number 11! He was interesting!
His voice. Rough. Like the voice of a 1980's private investigator. The Dick Tracy, Magnum P.I. feel to his voice!
Number 42's epiphany and transformation.
Yes. Would love a sequel!
Eric Upstein twist! The boy in the cave. . .
He sounds like Keaneau Reeves. I could visualize him acting in this movie.
Yes!! The vivid imagery after the explosion! The writer does a meticulous job giving our imagination what it needs to have been in the middle of a devastating explosion! I listened to that part twice!
Superbly written!! Will listen to this again!
So far, I would say near the bottom, but every book I listened to so far has been PHENOMENAL! Via Crucis ranks at the top!
I like the concept of the Angel in Heaven getting ready to record the birth of Christ, but a lot of readers who are "religious" and not spiritual would have been confused by this notion. But, as a reader, we must also understand our author is catholic.
Via Crucis!! Via Crucis cannot be compared to!
Hmmmmmm. .. not sure.
Yes! But have not read the print edition. I would assume the same except with the print, I can highlight!
None. Not even the Via Advent. The crucis is phenomenal spiritual insight.
He wrote it. So he read it how he heard it in his head. He brought to life his vision.
Tears of joy. I played over and over to mark to memory these wonderful insights. Especially the insight about the three hours of darkness at the cross and all sins, past, present, and future blotting out the sun! Wow! Thank you Jesus!
Keep it coming!!
Did not read the print edition but t he audio edition was pretty fantastic!
Duke. The Werewolf. He just was. Noble, fierce, passive, powerful, discerning, smart and yet just a country bumpkin (if I can use that word).
Yes. Just finished Divine Misfortune! Fred is one of the greatest!
Just "Duke and Earl."
A lot of cursing, but I do understand the nature of the setting of the novel. I wanted to listen to this with my children but too much cursing.
The concept of the universe in this novel with gods living among mortals and it is a way of life. Didn't like gorgos defeating thor though! Lol!
LOL!! The god of the wind sucking gorgos into a bag and kicking and stomping him! The god of deaths displeasure and the god of the wind retorting "What?!? It gets the job done!" Then the god of death joining him . .. . awesome.
Fred Berman is only matched by Chris Aiello! I now choose books not only by author but also by reader. these two are my favorites!
I laughed hysterically for about 20 minutes at 1:00 am (ish). My wife woke up and looked at me but I couldn't stop laughing so I went downstairs to finish laughing. I wish there was possibly a drawing of lucky.
Keep it coming!!
A MUST READ!!!!!
Monster. . . the ideal anti-hero with a character depth and revelation of internal struggle. the concept of changing colors uncontrollably to acquire different powers, yet at the whim of the universe, who is conciously controlling destinies to correct a mistake by creating the universe in the first place. . .which initially started with a glowing rock! What ingenuity, creativity, and well written to make things that seem unrelated. . .relate. I am buying all of A. Lee Martinez's books! So far have read three and am overwhelmed at his creativity! He is a literary genius. His subtle nuances that seem to mean nothing . .. means everything!! Foreshadowing, crisis, internal and external conflict, etc!!!
Keep it coming, Martinez!!
PS. Chris Aeilo and Fred Berman are the best!!!
