I tried 3 times to listen to this book. I finally gave up after 2.5 hours, and decided to delete it and move on. The narrator made a bad book even worse. From here on out, I will avoid any book by this narrator no matter how good the author. Avoid this book, and use your credits on something worth while.
I am a huge fan of the Odd Series, and this one was as well written as the previous. The ONLY reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is I thought it could have been a bit longer. Other than that I loved the book. Odd had his usuall wit that kept me either laughing or smiling all through the end.
I listened to this book immediatly AFTER Pillars. I am glad I did. While this one started a bit slower, after the first couple chapters, I was as hooked as ever. I could only hope to be stuck in traffic so I could keep listening.
This is by far the best book I have ever "read". I am a big fan of Ken Follet, but was a bit nervous of the new style from what I was used to from him. After about 6 minutes I was completely hooked, and could only hope for traffic jams so I could listen to more and more of this book. I would not hesitate to suggest this book to anyone, and already have! This is a must read book.
I thought I would give him another try...I regret it. While better than the last, it still just seemed to drag on and on. I Like long stories, I wont usually download a book less that 12+ hours, but this should have been a 6 hour book...the rest was tiresome filler.
I am not sure I can suggest this or not. It took me about 9-10 hours to get into this story. When that happened it was a very good book. Until that point I had to literally force myself to listen to it. And I only did that because all my credits for the month were used. If you like very slow paced story lines this is for you, but I will pass on the rest of his books.
While this is not the style of writing I am used to from Dean, it was very good. I have been waiting for a while for him to come out with a new book as I have read or heard all of them so far. This one was right up there with his best work.
I could not wait for the next book to come out in this series, but after listening to it, I wish I had to wait longer...the book was rushed and very unrealistic. It was more like a readers digest condensed version of the story with Harry running around solving it with annoying physic powers. I am sorry I can NOT suggest this book to anyone.
One of the longest I have listened to, but I wish it were longer. I would have given six stars if allowed. A must read.
As a huge listener to books, I am hard pressed to find many I really like anymore. This was one of them! From the beginning, I was hooked! I would not hesitate to suggest this to anyone.
