This is a fantastic rendition of MacBeth. I kept waiting for the book to slow down, so I could stop listening and go to sleep; Finally at 3 a.m. I forced myself to stop the book, so I could go to sleep.
The characters were really fleshed out, which I found fascinating. Alan Cumming as the narrator really brought the story to life.
I can honestly say, I will listen to this book again in the future; It's just that good!
I loved this story. The story was set in Paris around the year of 1450.
There were no sexy werewolves trying to climb into bed with any humans to seduce them.
These werewolves are of the Devil, and this story runs true to how people believed in the 1450's. They are evil and have human cunning. Actually, kinda like the Catholic Church and it's clergy of that time. Which actually makes for a great story, as the normal lay person is caught in a world of how to be clever enough to defeat the werewolves, without having the church condemn you as a Witch, or Satan worshiper.
So, yes we have all read the old stories of the werewolf, but again this was a great story, and I truly enjoyed my listen.
I'm a fan, so I loved everything about the story. I think Wilson has a fantastic imagination, and then weaves that into words.
Leo and Ethan. Mr. Wilson seems to have a difficult time with developing female characters.
Scott Brick is not one of my favorite narrators. His voice is a combination of Eeyore (very mournful) and William Shatner (dramatic pauses)
I compensate for this by kicking up the narration speed to 1.25.
First of all for me, Peter Hamilton is one of my favorite sci-fi writers. But I have to say, this book might be one of my all time favorites by him.
I loved all the clones, and a murder mystery that took place on two different planets. I loved the main characters, and how fleshed out they were. Of course this is easy to do, when the book is Ginormous.
Just finding out all about Angela.
I don't think I had a favorite character, however Toby did a great job with the accents. Even had the vowel sounds, spot on for an American midwestern flat accent.
Angela, and Rifka.
This book is as great as all the 5 star reviews says it is. Very funny and extremely well written and well performed.
I believe in any audible book that the narrator can make or break a book. Jonathan did a fantastic job.
Like all of the books I've read by Robert Wilson, his main characters are well thought out, and are believable.
The story was great! I love the concept of having a home, that is in fact a time machine.
Also, when Tom went back to 1962, I really felt like I was in New York 1962.
Yes. But I have a life, and have to quarantine time to listen to audio books :-)
I read or listen to books for fun. I am able to dispel my reality, and get into stories that are as good as this one.
I've been waiting awhile for this book to come out, and I was not disappointed.
Kate Mulgrew was excellent in her performance of each character in the book.
Get ready for a wild ride, and keep your arms and legs in the vehicle at all times.
I really liked the book. In fact I am finding I truly am liking YA books much more than traditional fiction.
This book is about a young man named Ethan, and a young woman named Lena.
Lena is from a family of Casters. Ethan is mortal. Together they struggle to enter each others world, but the universe has other plans for them.
The story and the characters are well developed, and it was a pleasure to listen to the audio version of this book.
Off to listen to the second book in the series........
I loved Sara's first book, Learning to Swim. However, this book I can barely get through.
I'm just finding it boring.
I really like the book. It was a very nice change from reading the Sigma books.
I really enjoyed the archaeological parts of the book, as well the puzzle solving. Think Sigma, only replace the team with vampires. These vampires are not like the ones in Twilight, or Vampire Diaries.
I personally thought the narrator did an excellent job. His accents were spot on. The audio editor might have done a better job by increasing the volume, as sometimes the narrators voice became very soft while reading the story.
I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.......
I like the premise of this book. The main character reminded me of the wizard Dresden, and the story itself reminded me of Urban fantasy (sans the romance).
Fun story all in all, and it has intrigued me enough to read the second book in the series.
