The narrator for this series is fantastic. Simply brilliant. He totally sucks you in with his performance.
Now if only books 4 and 5 were available through Audible I would be so happy!
Overall it was just too longwinded and boring for me. I know it was supposed to be "longwinded" in the fact that Verity needs to extend her tale as much as possible because she is a prisoner but there is only so much I can read about the different types of airplanes, controls, and flight patterns.
The performance was great actually in that she nailed the accent to my ear at least, was easy to understand, and not annoying.
Overall I just couldn't get into it, and sadly quit about a quarter of the way through. It's just that every time I tuned into listen I would get bored, easily distracted and pulled from the story, and then need to rewind to figure out what was happening. Especially as the main character has so many names and jumps from time to time.
David Tennant as narrator is amazing, so definitely recommend-able!
It could have used a bit more fleshing out detail wise, but it was sufficiently creepy.
It was only about an hour long so definitely worth the time! I actually wish it had been more elaborate and thus longer.
This is the 3rd book I have read by Marie Lu, the first two in this series were pretty great. Not quite sure what happened with this one.
This book became all about politics. What happened to the action? The emotion? Sadly in a book that had a war going on, and major moral questions, all that the book really focused on the polical mechanations. Ew.
The preformance of the narrator was okay I guess. It felt a bit flat, but a lot of that blame lays at the feet of the written material.
The narrator completely kills this book. I could only listen to half of the audio book before I quit and got a print copy from the library. She sounded like she was a 40 year old woman while she was narrating then like a breathy 13 year old girl when she was portraying Katniss. Ew. At first that was the only thing that annoyed me, but then her entire portrayal got to me. The way she read Katniss made her seem sooooo weak. Now don't get me wrong the dialog itself plays a big part of that but her inflection was always so whiney!
With this book I think you could go either the audio or print route.
Graham did a fantastic job of bringing the emotion to forefront of every scene. My only complaint was that the differences in the two main characters voices weren't different enough, so in dialogue heavy scenes I did find myself a bit confused as to who was saying what. Oddly enough thoug every other character was totally discernable!
The adorableness of Ture's and Maris's interactions had me ahhhhh in almost continuously. Then again sometimes the OVER dramatics had me rolling me eyes as well!
I would definitely recommend this book as well as the rest of the series to anyone! The stories are fantastic and Luke Daniels does a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life in a very believeable and unique way.
This novel was definitely more of a filler novel plot wise in the Iron Druid series, as it does quite a bit to set up for the climax of the story arc, but seeing how Atticus, Granuaile, and Oberone have grown into a little family even while dealing with godly politics, assassins, and a serious loack of sausage in Oberone's opinion was awesome.
Oberone will always be my favorite charcter just because of his personality but the addition of Mr. Daniels as his voice made me love the wolfhound even more!
The books in this series always make me literally laugh out loud and this installment was no different!
