I would say this book is for those listeners who like the truly odd. It wasn't what I expected, nor what I would have been able to guess the book would be about. It was refreshing. It was unexpected. It was hilarious (one of the things I like most about a book). And, it even had a little romance thrown in. The main character kicks butt and rocks! Yay!
Larry Correia and Oliver Wyman might just be the best combination of author and narrator I've ever heard. This story is amazing! And, I've listened to the other books before this one too. But together the combination of voice variety, humor, and making the story line come alive surpasses anything I have heard up to now. And, I don't think its easy to do this at all, but it seems like Oliver really understands the ins and outs of all the characters and makes them come alive. I felt like I was right there in the story as I listened along.The quality Oliver gives to each characters voices is so good it's unreal. More like a movie than a book. Great stuff, can't put if down. Keep 'em coming! I've become a real fan. I would really recommend this book, but not for the young or the squeamish.
The narrator's reading style, Jim Marsters, makes these characters come alive. Wouldn't be the same with another reader. I would recommend a listen to this book as well.
Another great story about Harry. Once you pick it up, its hard to put down. I recommend it.
I loved this one. The characters have more depth. The story is more focused. And, I really like that this story is different from a many of the fantasy fiction stories these days. Kudos! I'll be waiting for a part 3.
Loved the different type of plot. I had read the other two books of this series and just had to find out how it all ended. It didn't disappoint. I couldn't put it down until the last word. The ending was unexpected too. But I liked it and would recommend it.
Story's concept was a great departure from the usual. I really liked this. But the story altogether was not so good. It did have a few great parts, but it just didn't flow too well. Toward the end of the book the action jumped so much from chapter to chapter, I kept rewinding to see if I accidentally missed something. Nope, the author just decided to jump ahead to someplace else. The romance was pretty good though.
While not going to spoil the book for those who haven't listened, this was kind of a departure from the norm. It was different and pleasant. There are some surprising new characters in the story. Mercy's reactions to them were hilarious. I like this book and wish the next installment wouldn't take so long to come out.
Not very good. Failed to carry the story thru in several places. Not a good fantasy book. Not a good romance book. Not a good fairy tale. So what the fairy flip was that? I struggled thru but it was so slow. I was ready to ditch by the 2nd chapter.
I had no ideal I would be lost, if I didn't buy the first book. So I have to get it before I can honestly decide whether this is good or not. The narrator's voice is so squeaky, I'm not sure I can stand it. At first I thought I was listening to a teenage boy whose voice was changing, but no I think that a girl, just a really, really nasal and squeaky voice. This one may be going back . . .
This series is running out of steam. This one wasn't so good. I guess the storyline is hard to stretch or something. I think the narrator's okay, but the get up and go has got up and went.
