Ok...this is mildly funny. I can not deal with more of the same. How many books can I listen to the same story with different players. The books are almost entertaining but I expect a new story and this was more of the same and I can not imagine that the next would suddenly shock me with a great new plot. Ms. Plum in a great character and the concept is sound but changing some details and characters does not make the series worth the listen.
This was an incredible thing...and I still don't know if I love it or hate it. I know that I couldn't stop listening to it.
Burroughts is clearly an amazing writer and the book just flows from one area to the next but the story itself is hard to wrap your head around. I don't think that you can fully understand unless you have been trapped it the claws of addictions.
I am really glad I listened and I will probably listen to it again just to try to digest more of the shocking and often disgusting story.
I love to read, watch and listen to Anthony Bourdain so I found it great to listen to. Just a quick 3 minutes and there wasn't much to it but the Chef is interesting and speaks in a gritty and real manner about his trade.
I did enjoy listening to the stories by the group but I felt like I could have seen the this on PBS.
I really enjoyed the commentary by Martin. The storys were hit and miss for my taste. I really enjoyed some and could have left others. As a whole I am glad that I listened and I will be listening to Volume 2.
I love a good vampire story and I am not talking about glittery vampires, I am talking about blood thirsty vampires. Vampires are not my favorite story line but, I do get wrapped up in them from time to time. This story is well written with a great narrator. The characters are gripping and the story is complete. I really enjoyed this one a lot.
Let me start with the fact that I really am not interested in most zombie stories, I think that they are usually nothing more than mindless gore. This, on the other hand, was done well. The story is put together in a way to make it very interesting and (somewhat) believable. The cast of narrators did a great job and I have to say that I truly enjoyed the book.
Typical type of Koontz story but the best of his work that I have dabbled in. The book is really well written and I did enjoy it much more than I expected to but it is just not my favorite genre. If you like Koontz this is a good one for you.
Martin's continuing story of Dunk and Egg is very well done. I wish that I had more and this one has pushed me into trying some other works by Martin. I can't wait for the next volume of Song of Fire and Ice. The performance from Malcolm is a huge step up from the first Legends and the story is fantastic.
I enjoyed McCaffrey's story but it is just not my type of story. It is well done but I could have lived without it.
The McCaffrey started off great and I thought I was in for a really good story. I thought it was a really good idea and it was written really well but it was predictable and ended abruptly. I would have like to have seen more.
The Feist story never got my attention and to be honest after an hour I moved on.
Martin was flawless but I didn't care for the reader.
This is a crazy story that I got hooked on quickly. It is hard to explain but I had some really mixed feeling about what Mr Queen went through. Great story and lots of respect for a heck of a job.
