Excellent following to the original. Great performance, excellent narrative/narrator. Get it if you liked the first book.
I cant say it enough, what a great story. I am glad I got this book. You cant help but feel for the Key Spartans on this story, especially at the end. I found myself beaming with pride at the sacrifice of the key characters and the great choice I made in purchasing this book.
everything from the narrator, who is always good at narrating, to the incredibly detailed military sci-fi story is captivating. The attention to details given to the science makes it more believable than most fiction. if you liked any of the "Black Jack Geary" story's you will love this book. The key character just seem to have such similar personalities.
Great book. highly recommended, even if you don't play the game.
I don't know who these folks are that are liking this book. Listening to it I cant help but feel like the author was just making this up on the fly, with very little effort into character development. A lot of scenarios are very poorly and loosely explained, and the narrator was so bad I couldn't tell sometimes when he had started a new sentence.
Despite how bad the narrator was (and he was especially bad in this one), the story for me was far more disappointing. I am a big Sanderson fan, but this must be one of his earliest works because you can tell the difference between this and some of his other works. This yarn was so prosaic I found myself actually wanting it to end within the first 2 hrs in.
I was intrigued by the cover of this book, but after spending my points and wasting my time on this, I will be getting my money back from audible. Don't judge a book by its cover.
Simple a great introduction to the legendary character in the star wars universe. Jonathan Davis as usual never dissapoints.
I have followed the series over the years. This book wont disappoint the hardcore fan looking for more of the same. Jim Butcher sticks to the formula that made these series popular. Don't look for ground breaking story telling, its not here. Its just more of the same style of story's that you have come to love (or simply become used to). Needless to say, with the many many useless and bad writers out there, familiar stories written well can prove to be a much better alternative to many of the other choices out there. Still I cant help but feel like it could have been better.
This was a very interesting addition to the ongoing introduction and metamorphosis of Darth Bane. Jonathan Davis must be the best in the business as everything he does is always done with a level of discernment I have found far batter than your average audio book performer. His narrative makes the book worth it.
Definitely worth the time and effortless listening. Great storytelling as we can always expect from Grisham, and he never disappoints.
Okay nothing against the writer as I am sure some found this a gripping read, but for someone spoiled by authors ranging from Tolkien, RR Martin, Salvatore, Grisham and many other, this book just did nothing for me, and the narrator couldn't be more boring if he tried. several hours in and it seemed so pointless and uninteresting I stopped and came back to audible to read through the reviews that encouraged me to get this book to be sure I had not looked at the wrong thing. I endured "the magicians" despite its childlike story because the narration was at least a bit engaged, but this was plainly (if not painfully) prosaic. The character development was slow and clumsy, and the story was just...slow.
If someone figures out what the point of this story, and its character are please post it here. I for one know I wont be.
