It was good but not great.
It is better than red dragon
I thought he did a great job narrating
The book could have been great but Thomas Harris is to indulgent as writer. He gets bogged down in minute details and that bores me. I hate when authors don't allow me to use my imagination.
Yes it has!
No, she is terrible.
All of them!
I only listed to about 3 hours of this book, and I simply could not continue. After nearly a quarter of the way through the book there should be a plot or some form of crisis, but this book drones on and on about absolutely nothing. Their was no point! The narrator was dreadful. I could not tell when she would switch characters because they all sounded the same. Her attempt at Southern twang, was an abomination.
Characters i could relate to.
The Narrator was flat, and uninspired.
Maybe I didn't give this book a chance because I only listened to the first 2 hours, and couldn't take any more. There is a lot of character development, but the more I got to know the characters the less I liked them.
Probably not, The only book I have ever listened to more than one time was Steelheart.
Steel heart! Because it was the first book in the series.
He does a tremendous job with all of the characters, but my favorite is the main character, David.
"Nothing says love like having a gun pointed at my head with the safety on."
Ever since I listened to Steelheart, I couldn't wait for this book to come out. I had very high hopes for the book, and it delivered. This series is by far the most enjoyable series of books I have ever had the pleasure to listen. Even if you don't really listen to this type of book it is worth the listen. It's kind of like Star Wars in that even you don't have to be a die hard sci fi fan to appreciate a good story.
Yes, It is a very well done police detective drama.
I have no comparison because I don't typically listen to Detective books. I only got it because it was Stephen King, and I am a fan of his.
He is extremely talented, and I liked all of them, but detective Hodges was really great.
"Through the mind of a very disturbed young man"
This book starts very slow, but when it takes off it is really great. Will Patton is spectacular! This book is defiantly worth consideration.
The Narrator should not be reading books out loud for money. He's awful! He is the narrator of Stephen Kings book "The Stand" and he ruined that book as well.
It was boring.
His voice is like listening to nails on a chalk board mixed with people chomping ice.
The desperate urge to sleep while driving.
If you drive and listen to audio books, then don't get this book.
Yes it was very educational, but it was also very dry.
No he is to mono tone.
He put me to sleep.
The story was about Genghis Kahn not Jack Weatherford.
This is an extremely detailed account of Genghis Kahn. It is very insightful, but it also very boring. I listen to audio books while I drive, and this book made me want to fall asleep at the wheel.
I have already, not because it's a great book but because a large portion of the book is set in Tulsa Oklahoma which is where I have been for the past 38 years.
The fact that he mentions the Tulsa State Fair, and the old Bells Amusement park.
The narrator was dreadfully boring, and dry.
No! The book was dry! Stephen King is much better than this.
I was very disappointed in the book. I had very high hopes, and the book did not live up to them. If you listen to audio books while driving do not get this book. It will put you to sleep.
Yes, because the narrator adds a lot to the characters.
Captain Skull, He was a very cool character every time he was mentioned the story got very interesting.
The torture that captain Skull endured was really some good story telling.
This book is read in four parts. The fourth part is dry, dull, and boring. They should have stopped at part three and the book would have been perfect. The last part was so dull that I barely got through it.
It's in the top 5
It would be a toss up between Gus, and Mattie.
It's hard to say their were many great moments in the book, but when the Mexican officer asked to be shot to let the others go free, that was inspiring.
No moment in particular, I was moved by the book as a whole because it was very well written, and superbly narrated.
This is a quintessential Western novel, and must listen. This is a great book even if you don't like Westerns.
I have been anxiously waiting more from the Reckoners, and this was a great appetizer.
Well, Steelheart of course.
I have listened to several of his narrations. He is great in everything.
Not at all.
Can't wait for Firefight.
