While I did enjoy this book, it was not his best work. It did have a few surprises, but most of the story was fairly predictable.
The narrator was a perfect fit for this novel.
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.
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.
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.
