Kevin Smith likes to talk, he's funny and has A LOT to say about life, making "films", comics, family, friends, and whatever else the f**k he wants to talk about(he is quite vulgar which I find refreshing sometimes).
The end, but I don't want to spoil it. I got tears, and if a F**king Kevin Smith book makes you cry, then it is worth a listen.
Try something, be encouraging to my kids, and swear a lot.
Some of the stories I have already heard told on various blogs or SMODCASTS(Kevin Smith's podcast Network) so it was slightly repetative. But not everyone reads his blogs or listens to his SMODCASTS(which you should, if you enjoy this book).
Kevin Smith seems like a real heartfelt guy with a passion for people. He can't be "friends" with everyone, it seems like if he could he would! Instead he does the next best think and shares his heart and mind with the world hoping he might reach that one person that might otherwise not have had some encouragement. That's pretty effin cool.
The story is good enough for me to continue listening, but a person can only take so much physically that after a while it's hard to suspend disbelief.
This book really picked up the story. I love the magical world of OZ!!
The narrator is amazing and I love her Lulu voice, she sounds just like Arlene Sorkin's Harley Quinn from Batman the Animated series. I will be looking for more of her narrations.
I enjoyed the story and the world overall. Amber Benson was a great narrator and is now one of my favorite female narrators her voices are great. The biggest complaint I have is how many times he wrote, "Vinn said" or "Shane said". It really killed the flow of the story and I probably won't read/listen to another of his books. If stuff like that doesn't bother you, I recommend it, but if it does I'd skip it.
I think there was too much focus on the individual characters in this book. Much of it was repetitive. I enjoyed it but it definitely dragged on more than the other two.
I really enjoyed the magic of the Rithmatist, I can't wait for the next book. The story was adventurous and fun.
I was somewhat disappointed in the narrator. Overall he has a very pleasant voice but sometimes characters would have accents and sometimes they wouldn't. it was distracting. Otherwise loved it.
Lirael is one of my favorite Audiobooks, the narration by Tim Curry cannot be topped, he can do gymnastics with his voice.
Possible spoiler:I think that I maybe can compare her to Sansa Stark in the Song of Ice and Fire series. They both annoyed the heck out of me at the beginning. While Sansa's story is still being written, I feel she is becoming a strong courageous young lady just like Lirael. Both Sansa and Lirael are full of self-loathing, self-doubt, and are treated poorly by the world around them. Lirael beautifully overcomes this and I can see Sansa overcoming her struggle similarly.
Liraels first interactions with the disreputable dog.
Yes, and it doesn't hurt that I could listen to Tim Curry day and night.
Tim Curry! His narration was impeccable, he was able to make amazing evil cat sounds!
When Sabriel has to find her father in death, the scene is very emotional.
Mogget, he could make the cat snarl and talk at the same time, amazing!
Yes! Such a different story, not like anything I have ever read!
What a wonderful bookand series, it is one that sticks with you for a long time and makes you yearn for more.
Tim Curry needs to be one of your top narrators and narrate more books! He is amazing!
Yes, unfortunately, the series has gone down hill, the characters are stiff, but naturally I want to know how the story ends. I did not care for the narrator as Sookie, she was great for the supporting chsracters, but she would lose her southern accent at times and her voice a bit raspy for the character of Sookie.
The flat characters that used to have so much life. Also it took 3/4s of the book to have any real action start. She even made fun of Pam and Bill rather than embracing them she made them into caricatures. Sookie whined and complained the whole story.
Her southern accent made her voice raspy, which made it sound like Sookie was a smoker, when she would do Tara's on the other hand it sounded great, as well as most of the supporting characters.
The first 3/4of the book where most of it rehashes old stuff, and doesn't have much action.
Kill Sookie, or turn her. I know that lovers angst is what keeps readers interested but Eric is just an oaf, compared to the Viking God he was. Give them a happy few moments, let them go, and move on this stringing the relationship along for a couple of books with no emotion is flat and uncomfortable and boring.
Sure, I think this audio book was highly informative and I am positive I would learn something new if I listened to it again.
I picked it up because I was reading, the
He had a pleasing voice
No extreme reactions.
Great book that gives you a nice timeline of the era.
