Starting the book I was prepared to be disappointed - the valley girl meets old time vampire - one liners seemed a bit much.
But as I listened on, the story and the characters grew on me. The narrator is perfect match which greatly helps in making this a nice lite read.
I will probably listen to another in the series.
Wasn't quite sure what to expect and purchased this book based on the reviews.
Interesting story line and learned about Roman history in the process.
love books that make you question life and the book did just that. What is important. What isn't and tagging on to an interesting journey while the hero finds out.
Life changing novel. Thoughtful, introspective approach to considering the different life views around a quadriplegic person.
The person themselves, the caregivers and the family with the fears, challenges and joys to be found with each as well as together.
Definitely a must read book.
Wheaton is a great narrator and made the novel come alive.
All the references to the 1980's is cool - brought back memories. Not to take away from the actual story - it kept you on the edge of your seat.
Wheaton is consistently a great narrator and this audio doesn't disappoint.
Amazing concept of a not to distant (possible) future.
It was an interesting concept - Scalzi always makes you think and this book is no exception.
Like his reading - he suits the style of writing and the characters.
The concept is good - but found it hard to connect to the main characters
Compared to Old man's War, which admittedly is a tough act to follow, the book disappointed. It is still a good listen.
I love John Scalzi and believe he is the best sci-fi writer out there. Of all of his books this is my favourite.
If you have never listened to one of his books - then this is the one to start with.
Only John Scalzi could come up with something this imaginative.
The story's twists and turns as each of the subplots present themselves combined with Scalzi's "tongue in cheek" style makes this a very enjoyable listen. Was sorry to see the story end.
If you have read Molly Harper before - you wont be disappointed with this book. Her lite hearted journey into the lives of a small town full of Werewolves is a great listen.
Find myself listening to this little book over and over. Lithgow's performance is guaranteed to pull you out of any bad day.
