Oh god what junk. I couldn't finish it. Anytime a book bases its story around pseudo intellectual fringe groups of academe, forget it. I was waiting for one of the whiney narrators to muse, ?but don?t the demon?s have a right to kill us? After all we are dirty usurping, power drunk Americans; that have never done one good thing for the world.? Stale liberal propaganda with a smidge of LSD induced way out sci-fi, and some sex thrown in for good measure. Trust me this isn?t horror; just horrible. It?s merely a political statement masked behind a horror/sci-fi story. It?s Pravda with a light show. I knew I was in trouble when I heard super scenic Harlan Ellison did some of the narration (is there anything that man doesn?t hate?oh yeah?he loves himself that?s right) do yourself a favor, get anything else?anything!!!
ok first and foremost, i am not a book snob, i like my action actiony, and my science science fictiony...if i wanted reality i would watch the news. i loved this book. the critters concepts are fascinating, go to Warren Fahy's website and check out the field guide and get a better idea of the beastary. anyway, if you are a fan of books / movies like Jurassic Park, you will dig this book. enjoy!
Wow this book is really lackluster. There is very little character development. The dialog and slag for the Victorian era is all wrong. Plot points are repeated unto death! (it is almost as if it were written to be serialized).
The narration is utterly horrible! over acted, over done, and under produced (there is such a thing as a cough button, use it on inhales, and swallows too)
audible should have given me a credit for even considering to give this a listen.
Ok, first off, i am assuming that this is part of a series of books and this one must be about ten books in...either that or it was even more disjointed than i thought. the writing style and humor probably appeal to 13 year old girls, or the mentally challenged of all ages. there was so much hippy new age junk that i seriously thought it was a parody...wiccan, fairy, empowered women, drama-queen, buffy the vampire slayer wanna be, junk (the bad thing is, if that sentence seemed normal to you, you'll really dig this book.) do yourself a favor, watch a sitcom instead of getting this book, you'll kill less brain cells
this was a great story, with a horrid storyteller. the narration is sooo corny one can barely listen. i would like to hear this done by professionals
i wanted to like this book since i enjoy forgotten realms; but i just couldn't get into it. i find that audible is sorely lacking in the horror and fantasy department. i was so hoping this book would break the spell. alas, the chain of bad books continues.
i listen to audiobooks on my hour drive to and from work...with this one i almost fell asleep at the wheel. sheer rubish
althought i got this book unabridged, i couldn't helpt but feel i got the readers digest version. i seems like a cooked down, scaled back, bite sized version of what could have been a good (mind you only good) story. it was just so two demenisional, there was something beneath the surface...but the book i got wasn't giving it up anytime soon. want a good werewolf story, try reading Wolf's Hour by Robert MacKammon (spelling? it's late)
This is a great book for anyone who isn't jaded by the fantasy genre. i would have only given the book four stars, but i wanted to offset some of the nay sayers; you know the type, they compare every fantasy book they read to giant authors of the genre...then of course sit in there basement apartment and dream of the book they are going to write...one day. of course their mother shouts down the basement step that dinner is ready and they bumble there 35 year old butt up for some grub...but i digress. as for why i would have only given four stars? my same old beef with all fantasy books; dosn't an adult ever find anything they will change the world? don't adults have destinies? that and the narrator sounded like roddy mcdowell.
this was book was suggested to me; i was skeptical...generally any book that get the blanket "insert name of author here takes up where lord of the rings left off" generally gets...left off! i mean there is more to the fantasy genre than LOTR for godsake! anywho, i went in to this with a half open mind, and was pretty taken with wheel after sludging through the first two hours or so.
