American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It has a dark, urban vibe and the author plays with mythologies and relgions.
A good mix of action, suspense, sadness, and surprises.
Vin. She grew and changed the most over the course of the series.
Sanderson delivers a solid ending to a great series, without falling prey to sentimentality.
Yes. It's a great book and well-narrated.
Often, the middle book in a series leaves you feeling unsatisfied, but this is an excellent book and one of my favorite fantasy series of all time.
Maybe. Both are very good. I like the way the narrator brings Welch to life. Just right!
Franco. He's funny and devoted.
This was the first.
It's not really that kind of book. There are some emotional bits, but mostly it's entertaining, uplifting, and funny at times.
You don't have to love football to enjoy this book. Short and sweet!
Perhaps, but I'm in no great hurry
Plot-wise, there are superficial similarities to Harry Potter, but it reminds me more of books like "The Dark is Rising."
A little sedate. Narrative voice was good, but the characters came across a little dry.
I believe there are several. It's not a bad book, but it shows its age in terms of style. Liked it, but didn't love it.
This is a digitizing of the old cassette recording. Unfortunately, the producers couldn't be bothered to remove all the "Please fast-forward to the end of the cassette..." bits. It's not that difficult.
This series has its ebbs and flows over the course of the first dozen books. The first five are excellent, though Jordan's pacing and style aren't for everyone. This book, the sixth in the series, is very good, but it marks the spot where, in my opinion, the series really slowed down. Important and interesting things happen in this book, but there's a heavy dose of planning, plotting, and discussing. Still, a good book, but not the best in the series.
If the friend really enjoyed pirate adventures and didn't have high expectations.
I wish the plot had a few more twists. The story was very linear.
Maybe. He's good with accents but his narration was a little flat. I'd give him at least one more try before making up my mind, though.
Probably. It's a relatively short book so I'll have to wait until I've forgotten most of it.
The "miracle." I don't want to spoil it, but it's funny and sticks in your mind.
He perfectly captured the author's dry, cynical humor while voicing the characters in a serious way.
Lots of laughs, especially if you like cynical satire. The author pokes fun at sacred cows and popular culture trends.
Yes. This is one of my favorite series and I go back to it every few years.
When we learn something important about the background of the King of the Murgos.
His portrayal of Belgarath.
Too long for that.
Among all audiobooks? Somewhere in the middle. Of the books in this series it was my least favorite.
The climactic event was an odd choice. I understand why the author chose it, but I didn't like what it meant for the character. The final wrapup was pretty much what I've been expecting since the Reaping in book one.
I've only listened to her work in this series. Her performance is about the same- she has a good voice, but is often too sedate.
No, it took a long time to hook me.
This book felt a little rushed and maybe a little condensed. I wish she had spread this out into a couple of books. I hope she goes back and writes side novels telling the stories of some characters outside of Katniss's point of view.
