Being I was in the car and a captive audience, yes. I was very interested to see what Jamie Waterman would be doing in this book and how things would progress on Mars.
The politics! This book became very political which added nothing to the story but showed Ben Bova as being a total left wing looney.
I liked Jamie Waterman in the entire trilogy.
No. It would not make a good movie.
The mars exploration in the book seemed more plausible then the politics. The politics was so far out there it seemed to be more science fiction then the main story. It was a veiled attempt to make the religious right look like a bunch of religious zealots and to show the devastation of man made global warming which is a total hoax.
Middle of the pack.
It's like no other book I have either read or listened to.
It's my first John Lee book but he does an excellent job.
Some of the character development is unnecessarily long and adds little if anything to the overall plot and one of those subplots ends as a cliffhanger. What's that all about. It's worth listening to the end but it had it's moments where I wanted to bail out as it is very long.
Jonah and Katherine are the stars of the series and my favorite characters. What one doesn't think of, the other does and they never think about themselves it's always about trying to help others.
A great addition to the Missing Kids series. Provides some history while entertaining in an always unpredictable way. Fun for kids and adults!
I can't comment on how the audio book compares as I haven't read the book.
I just love the entire cast of characters, but Percy and Annabeth are my favorites because of the way they play off one another.
The reading of the book was OK. Nothing special. It would have been nice if the reader put more heart into it. At times it felt like he was just reading the book.
Frank's coming of age was great. There are two scenes where Frank takes charge and destroys armies. He is no longer someone to trifle with.
This is great addition to the Percy Jackson saga. Totally unpredictable and fantastically creative. I can't wait until the next book comes out to see how they deal with Gia!!
Middle of the pack. It was a fun continuation of the first book, Mars, but it ends kind of abruptly and there are some serious quality issues with the presentation. Any editing that was done is so painfully obvious.
Mars, the original book in this trilogy.
The story was captivating and kept you wanting to listen but it started to get a little political which would push you away.
Rudnicki's performance was great but the editing absolutely sucked making any editing very obvious and actually obnoxious. I can't ding Rudnicki for that.
The Monster Hunter series is just so much fun to listen to and the 4th installment is no exception. Great characters, great performance, riveting plot line. I'm glad I don't live in this world, or do I?
You could never guess where it was going next. It kept you guessing the whole time.
Oliver Wyman does a wonderful job with the whole Monster hunter series.
Can't wait for the 5th installment!!
It wouldn't be on the top of my list to listen to again, but it was enjoyable.
No, but he did a great job on this one.
No, but it kept you interested in what was going to happen next.
Ended kind of abruptly. I thought there was more the author could have done with the end of the book. There were so many plot lines left hanging.
Absolutely. This is a highly entertaining book though more predictable than the previous Monster Hunter books. It is just a fun ride by someone with a wild imagination about a world I'm glad I don't live in, or do I?
The Monster Hunter series stands by itself, but if you liked the Percy Jackson and the Olympians, you'll proabably love this series.
Oliver Wyman does a fantastic job with all the Monster Hunter books and this is no exception.
If this doesn't make you laugh sometime and cry others, you might want to check for a pulse. It great to see the mighty Earl Harbinger get a love interest though it was somewhat disappointing that he was the only one from MHI in this book. I missed Owen, Julie and the rest of the MHI gang.
Can't wait to start on Monster Hunter #4!
It's a clear, concise, fact based account of what the gun control battle is all about and indeed it is control but not of guns as many people think, but control of the people.
There isn't anything that I know of that compares.
I wouldn't change it. It's perfect the way it is.
This is a must read for everybody and should be on the top of every school reading list. It is a great history and civics lesson.
It was great to hear about the European front of WW2 from the writing of some of our finest military leaders. You don't know how fragile the egos of these men really were until you hear it from their own writings. We tend to forget that as good a leaders they were, they were still human and human flaws and frailty.
The British finally being made to look like the disrespectful, glory hounds that they were. They always wanted to be in the position to receive the glory and tried to minimize the American involvement when if it wasn't for the Americans, Britain would have ceased to exist!
