Brilliant story (in parts similar to the film Pitch Black). The good story was elevated by the superlative narration. Ms Fortgang's voice is a beautiful combination of cream and honey!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am eager for the sequel. and more narration from this wonderful lady!
Really good story, fantastic narration. Kept me engrossed for a few days. Thoroughly recommended.
Can't wait for the next book.
OK, maybe I wasn't concentrating properly, but I kept losing my place in this book. I found the plot really confusing.
I was constantly rewinding to check I hadn't missed something. Maybe this was because the story jumps back and forward in time.
But I liked the main character, Nate and would be interested in what happens to him in future.
I didn't like the narrator. Some of his voices sounded like Dick van Dyke in Mary Poppins, which considering he is English takes some doing! He also had an odd habit of stressing the wrong words, which added to my overall confusion.
I had begun reading the kindle book, which was OK, but listening to this was a chore rather than an enjoyable experience
I'm not a dog person, but I fell in love with beautiful, loyal, Maggie. I liked Scott too and the story was good.
My 13-year old enjoyed the story too.
Please can we have more of Maggie and Scott.
I have over 500 books in my audible library. This has to rate amongst the worst. The title is a total misrepresentation. It was nothing about the life and times of the butler as described.
It had no coherence and I had no idea what the relevance of most of it was to the title.
A REALLY BAD listen. The only redeeming feature was the narration, (not Forest Whitaker who speaks so slowly I had to put it on 1 1/4 speed).
An appalling waste of two hours of my life. I will never buy anything from this 'author' again. I am asking for my money back.
I loved this book! Perfectly narrated (more from mr Abdallah, please) and a great story. Couldn't fault it in any way. This is what Audible should be about.
Am eagerly awaiting the rest in the series. Glad I have discovered such a good author and narrator. A fantastic pairing.
Great story, generally good narration. I really enjoyed this, zombies meet '24'. BUT, Mr Porter, please get a voice coach for the English accent!!! It was absolutely terrible. Wrong vowel sounds, wrong stress and emphasis. That 'London' accent comes from the moon, or mars or somewhere, but not London!!!
It kept pulling me out of the story and I almost didn't get the second book because of this. However, the other characters were great, the story ripped along and apart from Major Grace, the narration was very good.
A wonderful listen. Jeff Woodman should win an award. He is I think, the best narrator on Audible. His different voices are perfect and he gets male and female spot on. Unbelievably good narration.
The story was great too. I always enjoy this author and he is the only person I will download without bothering to listen to a sample.
Keep them coming. A brilliant, wonderful combination of author and narrator. Well done.
i loved this book. it was rude, totally infantile and very naughty. it made me feel like a mischievous child again.
i love anything with demons. this was a new, very silly, but fun angle.
if you are easily offended or don't have a scatalogical sense of humour, don't buy it. you have been warned!
I came to this after listening to all the other Reacher books, as i had become accustomed to Dick Hill. OK, Reacher sounds different, but I cannot understand the criticism. I thought it was excellently narrated and the voices were good (at least to my British ears).
The story was really compelling and I finished it in two days. Overall a very good listen.
A great re-imagining of the zombie story, set in a technologically advanced future. Very good, but a few loose ends. It would make a great film.
However the narration is unbelievably bad. It sounds like a female Stephen Hawkins, that is mechanical and strange with odd pausing, stress and pronunciation. I almost gave up. I dont think I have heard anything quite so bad. Nevertheless I am glad I stuck with the story. Hopefully there will be a sequel (read by a different person, please god!)
