Over my 4 years of being a member here, this is one of the best books I have listened to! The author's writing style is superb, the characters enjoyable, and it is all made even better by the superb performance of Gerard Doyle's narration - one of the best I have heard, and in the same class as Frank Mueller, whom I sorely miss! I give this book the highest marks on all counts!
Not sure how I missed this series, but glad a friend recommended it recently! Good story, well developed characters (that you can actually care about), and very well paced, never a dull moment! Won't give anything away, other than to say I give this book my highest recommendation! Also worthy of note is the excellent narration by Joe Barrett - he may be my favorite narrator now, very reminiscent of the late, great, Frank Muller - and that is the highest praise I could give any narrator! Can't wait to start the next book, though I see Mr. Barrett is not the narrator this time around, too bad - will be listening to some of his other work in the near future!
Very near the top of the list! OK, this is not Shakespeare or Dickens, but it IS 100% entertaining! Especially if you grew up in the 70's and 80's, and even more so if you happened to be a geek during those years
close between Aech and Art3mis, but to answer why would entail spoilers....
Very well done, fits right in to the story
It was a TERRIFIC stroll down memory lane for me, having been a computer game geek and computer nerd during just the times this book references constantly... (My first computer was a Radio Shack TRS-80, graduating to an Atari 800, then a Commadore 64...)
I found this to be one of the most entertaining reads in a long while, partly because of the memories evoked by all of the old game and computer references, but also has a great story - I was sad when it was over!
Roy Dotrice delivers one of the best narrations I have ever heard (and having been an Audible subscriber for over 10 years, that is saying quite a lot!). He really sets the mood with his accents and character voices, glad to see he does the rest of this series also!
Don't want to give away any spoilers!!
As I mentioned above, Roy's accents and character voices are all done superbly and really do add to the ambience.
I believe HBO has already done this :)
Get this one, you won't regret it!
