The story line was interesting and had some good twists. The dialogue was witty and fun.
I liked hearing about the house and funny interactions between main characters.
I've lived in the South all of my life and it was PAINFUL to hear the over produced and exaggerated accents the narrator used. He's obviously a skilled performer, so I blame the director for his performance. It TOTALLY detracted from the story and there were times I wanted to stop listening because of that.
I cannot say enough of how over produced this performance way. The music, the sound effects, the exaggerated accents. If I was the author of this book I would be pissed at how this performance detracted from the story.
I like anything Peter Hamilton writes and this book was a wonderful spin off to get to know Nigel Sheldon (one of characters from other books). Hamilton spins complex stories so it's often difficult to follow. Listening to his books especially by such a great narrator makes it more enjoyable for me. I highly recommend listening to this book and can't wait for the next installment.
James Marsters excels as usual in the performance of this book. I bought the book because he was the narrator, but the story is excellent as well. Great plot, very interesting and I'm really looking forward to the final installment. The first book was more interesting of course as it usually happens. This is the usual middle installment that sets the stage for the end.
Yes because I wanted to find out what happened next, but it was incredibly slow and not much really happened.
While I am impressed with Mr. Dotrice's performance of the men voices, he SUCKS at performing Brienne, Danerys, Sansa and Arya. Every woman sounds like an old irish grandmother, which really detracts from the story.
I loved that it was creative and new and wasn't another book glorifying vampires. The characters are fresh and vibrant.

Gareth. I bought the book solely based upon Marsters being the narrator. He's my favorite.
