Nature of Evil takes you on an emmotional rollercoaster... Love... Lust... Murder! The story draws you into the unlucky life of Marcus Carter, a detective with plenty of emmotional baggage. You really start to feel for this guy, and the hardships he is forced to endure. Just when you think things can't possibly get any worse... Boom! Robert W. Stephens hits you with another surprise.
SEX! If you're tired of stories closing the door when the characters go in to the bedroom, then this is the story for you.
Another thing I love is the turmoil going on in these character's lives. A priest believes he is a fraud, because he thinks other priests can hear god. After the death of his wife, a detective fights lonliness with prostituition. A Brother and Sister's relationship is already circling the drain,then get's rocked by shocking murders. Even the victims are conflicted!
If you like testing your logic skills on murder mysteries, see if you can solve this one before the last chapter.
I'm torn between the Demon and David Lombardi. I really enjoyed Lombardi's journal entry's and Dick Hill's performance was the cherry on top. Hill does a great job with Lombardi's accent and emmotions. Plus, every time you're listening to the journal it gets pretty gruesome, gotta love that. The Demon is just what you think, a little devil on your shoulder convincing you to make the wrong choices. It takes someone really twisted to follow the requests that thing makes. It can be good to be bad, but the demon is downright evil!
SGT Ramsey is just a BADASS. I'm suprised the guy didn't kick ass all the way through the story!
The sex scenes were great, but I really loved the details in the crime scenes. I felt like I was actually standing amongst the carnage in this story. I cringed everytime they pulled a sheet back, because I knew the type of description coming next. Don't eat dinner and listen to this story at the same time. It's hard to paint a descriptive picture of these horrific crimes without pointing out the essential clues. Stephens does a good job of burying the important clues early in the story. It's always fun to go back and look for those clues, once you know the ending.
The discussion about the power of the mind was very interesting. The mind can do some wild things to cope with reality. This story proves that we all could have Darkness hiding inside, and never know any different.
I would definately check out more of this Robert W Stephens work!
One of the best. the world sanderson creates is full of magic and wonder.
Vin is a great character. beautiful and deadly.
I loved how sanderson uses religeons as a mapp to put the workd back together again.
My reaction was to the fact that the series was ending. Each book is so long, that you become a part of that world. You know the characters so inimately that you dont want it to be over.
Yes, the name of the wind is an interesting tale of the truth behind the legend. Rothfuss makes your feel his world and love his characters. I feel closer to Kvothe's friends then some of my own!
Rothfuss truly emerses you in the world of the story. He uses interesting narrating technique as plot devices
Great performance. Easy and enjoyable to listen to even in the 34th hour.
fun and dangerous adventure
Rothfuss creates a beautiful picture of the life and inner workings of Kvolthe's mind. The characters he creates are wonderful, dripping with personality. I think I love the women as much he does!
Nick Podehl does a great job. His voices are realistic and fitting for the characters.
This book is way to long to listen to in one sitting. Despite it's length it leaves you wanting more!
