I love Disney. I live in Florida. I've loved the other 4 books. I recently watched a special on Backstage Disney and saw many of the "secret" things that are written about in the series. It made me decide to take that particular tour this year.
Like Harry Potter, while it may have been written for a younger audience, I love every aspect of the story. I will admit I've always favored the villians at Disney - these books may make me change my mind. I smile, I laugh, I actually get teary throughout the book. I can't find a best part. I love this series from the first word to the last.
MacLeod brings the books alive. The accents, the attitudes. He does a great great job.
You THINK you know Disney....
I can't wait for Book 6.....this was SUCH a cliffhanger.....
Right Up There in the TOP TOP TOP.
Amira in the caves.
No movies. They'd probably put someone stupid like Tom Cruise as Joe and I'd have to vomit.
I love the fact that this short ties up Book One.
I have no idea. I haven't read the print version.
Joe's really the only character in the book. As it should be.
Even though a lot of this happens in the first chapter in Patient Zero, I enjoyed this very short short alot. Joe makes me smile.
Where's Book Three?
Until the very last minute. This whole series could be called The DMS Conspiracy Theory.
All of the little critters in the Dragon Factory made me happy - and damn scared (note Tin Foil Hat above)
TIN. FOIL. HAT.
I love Joe Ledger. This series could go on forever, as far as I'm concerned. As long as NO ONE in Echo Team gets hurt.
This is my second go-round. I read the entire series, figured out the order of the mini-books, put them where they belong and started over. I love Hugo. I love Toys. i LOVE Joe Ledger. Ray Porter does them all justice.
Really? There are too many.
Everything. Especially after listening to the interview with him and Ray Maberry in the Special Ops set of shorts. I smile every minute I'm listening to these.
Yeah, but it would let secrets go, so I can't say.
I love the series. I'm just not sure what I"m going to do when I'm finished with it the second time.
I actually recommended it to two people this week. One has already purchased Book 1. what's NOT to recommend.
Hopefully Dr. Hu will be taught a little humility. Is that what I liked BEST? No. But I liked it. The best part of all of Mr. Maberry's books is that he weaves the prior stories in so flawlessly, so completely. And I started the series late. I just listened to all 6 (plus the shorts) in a row. Usually I get irritated at the rehashing. He does a GREAT job.
I'd like Mr. Porter to call and just read me the paper. He's phenomenal. Inflection. Tone. Humor. He brings Joe Ledger and Bunny and Top to life. And the Deacon. I'll go out of my way to listen to books he narrates.
Oh hell yeah. I did and I didn't. I WANTED to. But I knew the next book wasn't due out for a YEAR. A YEAR. What am I supposed to do for a year? So I drug it out.
And as I drug it out and listened to the prior history come forth, I realized - I'd just start at the beginning of the series again and listen to them all in order - AGAIN. Starting tomorrow. That's how much I love this series. PS... Is it 2015 yet?
The last sentence
Truly, with the Ledger books I don't have these ... I love the books in their entirety .... I USUALLY can't say I like one "part" over another.
Same here.....these books are gruesome (in the manner of a much more talented Jack Bauer - TV can only do so much). But I actually really like Joe's detailed descriptions of the fight scenes.
The last sentence made me smile. Big.
I've only got two more Joe Ledger books to read .... I'm SO sad. I've read the reviews on Deep Pine and I just don't know. Maybe I'll try Rot & Ruin next. I've So loved Joe and Ray Porter - this man is second only to Scott Brick. I LOVE HIM.
Already Read Em.
I love Mr. Porter. Alot.
My own fault. I didn't pay close enough attention. I had already purchased the individual stories. Simply didn't realize that this was a collection of individual stories that I already HAD. What a waste of money! That being said. I love Joe Ledger. I love these little asides that help you learn about Joe and his life. I love Ray Porter's narration. I started this series thinking it was probably going to be a hokey zombie series. How wrong I was. Love the series. And will read Deep Pine next.
Would I? Yes. Will I? It's my first book by Mr. Maberry, so probably not right away. I have a lot of books to listen to before I loop back around to the beginning.
Till the very end. The twists and turns got me all the way thru.
Every. Single. Word. I've now found someone I love as much as Scott Brick. I love his inflection, his tone, his voice. Maybe it was the content, he did a GREAT job .... I guess I'll find out ... I'll now look for books that are narrated by him - you know, when I'm done listening to every Jonathan Maberry book there is.
Yup, and I pretty much did it in two.
I'm a 50 year old with a grown son. The sum total of my chosen experience with zombies is Night of the Living Dead. But I LOVED the description of Joe Ledger. Reminded me of how I felt when I read the first FBI book by Catherine Coulter, so I gave it a shot. I'm so glad I did. I'm beginning the prequel now. Then will listen to 1.1 and 1.3 before moving on to The Dragon Factory .... (1.2 is evidently a "prequel" to Dragon Factory). I'm so happy I have a new author to love.
It's right up there at the top, specifically because of Scott Brick.
Anything else that John Lutz has written in the Quinn series.
I try very hard to ONLY listen to Scott Brick.
I wouldn't make it into a movie.
Another Frank Quinn book. I'm glad for all the progress with the relationships in the team. I LOVE Pearl's mother and their conversations. They actually make me laugh out loud. This book and the last have irritated me insofar as Mr. Lutz seems to have a problem with women. I understand he's writing about serial killers, but the tone with which he talks about women (in general) is beginning to get tiresome. And Nift. I hate Nift. But the books are well written and I never figure out who it is until he tells me in the end.
Probably. The story was good. The relationships were sweet.
Obviously Dane. He made me smile.
I have not, to my recollection heard her before.
Extreme? No, but I did eventually become very very very irritated with a 16 year old constantly thinking of himself as "a man" and "a man would act like this" and " a MAN like him" ... he was 16. I got really tired of it by the end of the book. The rest of his character was fine. But the self-introspection got tiring.
All's well that ends well. I like that in a book.
