yes. but not the best quality.
Seemed he may have been under the weather during this one.
There is a Technical quality problem with the Gain and other board things.
Please do more of these, would like to follow these characters more. This is a good listen.
Love the behind the scenes information. And reminiscences, especially of an old friend.
Thank you "BOSS".
This is a book about Yuri Geller's Ideas. I like Yuri Geller and respect him. This book does not appear to expound beyond Yuri's ideas, or offer any scientific attempts at proof. If you have never heard Mr. Geller's ideas then by all means buy this book. For me there was nothing new or extra. The Narration was Good. And i can't return it, WHY????
The Narration was Fine. I thought this was a book about Indigo and Crystal Children, but no.
It was made for Cell phone users, a seek and find interactive Who-done-it, which is fine, but So BORING as a Fiction book. 1/3rd of the way in i was looking for a rope. So i turned it off instead. For some reason you can not Return this Book, so more then Disappointing.
Loved the Back-story and how the Cast Bonded and stayed Bonded. The Remembrances of Andre' were delightful (and helped me remember him RIP Boss). Loved how they had fun, and how the stars aligned just right to make that movie possible. It was magical.
The NBC shows were not as faithfully written to the Characters by Rex Stout. Sidney Greenstreet was of course wonderful and carried the shows. The Archie performer was good but his character was not written correctly. Archie was a savvy detective in his own right not a novice, or a Whittling. If memory serves the CBS shows were far better written as to the overall characters and mental gymnastics of Nero Wolfe.
But still for many reasons i am glad i have these to remember.
I have all the books in this series and love them all.
Renee' Raudman's Narration is Fantastic! Her voicing even the Males is excellent. She also captures the Ironic and Sardonic in the Voice of the characters.
I had this Book on Kindle Pre-order with Amazon and it was an Unexpected treat that i could get the Audible the same day.
I Love the way the Authors have been doing their Magic Research, and all the American and other countries Culture/Pop Culture (e.g. Bugs Bunny, W.E. Coyote, The Princess Bride and other things American, Russian/European, 3AM Час волка).
I love the Humour and the 3D feel of the characters.
Any Writer(s) that can actually put me [old cynic] on an Emotional Roller-Coaster have got it together. I love the characters and they are almost real to me.
Please keep this series alive, Thank you.
/--> SPOILER (seriously skip this part of the review if you have not read listened to the book)
Let me get this out of the way; I normally do not read fun books or watch fun Movies with sad endings, if this was the only book of the series i had seen, i would have read the end first and not purchased it. This is ME and has nothing to do with the Writing or narration or story, I AM Weird that way. I have never watched the Movie "Titanic" cause the name gives the ending away. So this is not a critique of the Book or Series.
<-- END SPOILER/
Take 1 part Dashiell Hammett, 1 part Jim Butcher, 1 part Mickey Spillane, and finally 1 part Neil Gaiman, add a dash of Archie Goodwin wise-assery from Rex Stout;
Mix thoroughly with Magic and pour out sideways, there you have it: "The Nightside".
One could call this Campy or a Homage' to the Detective writers/stories of the 30's, 40's and 50's, "Witch" I loved growing up. Later i began to read "Constantine", "The Dresden Files", "Neverwhere" and Marion Zimmer Bradley's "GhostLight" Series.
This Series is a combination of those [above] styles/stories, and out popped Mr. Green's own Flavour of Magical Detective.
I appreciate this Homage to the old style of rough and tumble, classic American Detective (Dick). I can read the affection that Mr. Green has for those stories and the idea that there is Magic in the world. To me it is fun to read the English slant on this beloved genre' of writing.
The Narrator is wonderful and easy to understand.
I want to read more of these and some of the other different Series by Mr. Green.
Loved the story, The Narration as always was wonderful and no real technical glitches to speak of... I was so very please with this Audio Book, and of course the whole Nero Wolfe Series, i have most of these and hope they will make more of them, the Pre-WWII Stories please please, addicted.
I have read this Story so many times. I was sad it was Abridged but my Brain added the extra parts. The rewrite for this version was done well. The narrator was very good, the audio quality was iffy. But Still a wonderful Listen.
