This is a great book, not a great audiobook. I read this book twice and decided that it would be fun to listen to it in my spare time since I loved it so much, bad mistake. The narrator is the worst narrator I have ever heard. ever. This is an emotional book and he puts no emotion into it. The characters all sound the same and when someone is dying and yelling at their enemy he reads the same as if they were talking to a friend. He does do a good job pronouncing names but this in no way makes up for how horrible he did with everything else. the narrator manages to make a book that is so intense and exciting come off as such a boring book. sometimes you dont even understand what is going on because of how horrible it is read. I hope that they decide to make another version read by someone that can put emotion into characters. If you really want to enjoy battle royale just pick up the hard copy of the book, it is so much better.
I first placed this book on my wishlist 2 years ago, I kept putting it off month after month because there was other books that I was more excited to read. The time finally came where I just went ahead and bought it because I was tired of putting it off. I wish I had just skipped the wish list and bought it 2 years ago. This book is one of a kind, and in the best way possible. I don't really agree with other reviewers that it swears a lot, but maybe that is just me. It is violent, but again, not as bad as people make it seem. Be prepared to laugh, cry, yell in frustration, and be shocked by a wicked good plot twist.
This was a fantastic addition to The Stormlight Archive. Brandon Sanderson has done it again with this book. So many questions are answered and many more are added. The only thing I disliked about the book is Kate Reading. I do like her as a narrorator by her self, but when you switch so fast between her and Michael Kramer, it is hard because their voices for each character are so different. Other than that it was a great book.
not really sure... I love Tim Curry, but his voice was just putting me to sleep...
If Mr. Curry would have put some more emotion into the main character.. she is just so bleh....
I could not finish the book. I really really wanted to enjoy this, the story line is really neat and original but I guess I will have to pick up a hard copy to finish it.
never read the print version but I might pick it up just to have because of how good this was.
When he meats the other girl that is falling.
love never leaves us.
I loved this book so much I read it twice in a row.
I will first start out with saying that Steven Weber ties with Frank Muller for me for my favorite narrator. Steven Weber makes these characters come to life! I find myself wanting to listen to it again just because I enjoyed his narration so much.
That aside, the story is also amazing, king does such a great job in capturing how children think. I found myself laughing at some of the things that were said or the way they would think because I thought that same thing when I was a kid. It is a great story, some parts are disturbing but that comes with the territory. Don’t let the 45 hours scare you away from this great book, Steven Weber makes it go by like a cool summer breeze, and when it is over you find yourself wanting more.
