Found myself waiting for this horrible GORE Fest to begin after reading the Reviews I was excited for some Shock & Aww and ended up waiting, & waiting, & waiting... Then waited some more.. Then found myself at the end.?! The Sissy's writing these reviews must need to leave the Light on to read Cat In The Hat.. Cause Eating Green Eggs n Ham Is Bout as Macabre as it gets.. And I'm So Scared of Talking Cats.. Seriously? I could understand maybe one review but multiple reviews paint this book as something that shouldn't be read on a full stomach when honestly I found it to be Light Horror if anything.. Gore?! Not at all.. Maybe I'm numb to things, maybe being a Psychopath causes me to overlook certain chapters of Gore leaking bodily fluids from the pages but I doubt it. Instead I believe one of three things is going on here.. 1: over embellishing the reviews by "Professional Reviewers" in attempt to sell more books 2: Someone using multiple accounts or some Group of someone's attempting to hurt sales of this book or lastly 3: This book somehow was picked as the book of the month at the Sissy-LaLa book club. Don't judge by reviews, give this one a chance! I honestly think the story only ranked 3 stars because I was so worked up for something that never happened because of misleading reviews so Please judge for yourself!
I found it to be fairly unique in its own way considering how overdone the whole Infectious disease scene is these days.
As always I prefer audio books because a reader can (doesn't always or is incapable of ) adding personality to a story, voices, emotions such as Fear, anger, insanity.. Building up anticipation, pulling you up the hill before pushing you down.. Like a Coaster ride.. It's impossible to do this while reading to yourself unless you know what happens next in which case what fun is that?!
To avoid Spoilers let's just say "The Crazy one" you'll know who that is by end of story.. If take him out to dinner with me.. Why?? Isn't it obvious?? Oh yeah you haven't read it yet . Well I'd take him with be so he could Cut My Meat.. hahaha drum beat.. Bah Dah Dah!!
Read reviews sure, but don't ever pick a book or Not pick a book due to reviews. You have to keep in mind that these our someone else's opinion! Many times that's not even try in a world where writers, editors, readers, cousins & brothers of Writer all have accounts & all write reviews not to mention friends & professional reviewers who could get paid maybe? Free gifts, credits?? Who knows.. Even weirdo stalkers that didn't get their book signed one day after waiting on line for a hour & knows that writer saw me waiting and left early for lunch on purpose then after a hour & 1/2 the store owner informed us he was unable to return.. That's enough to make a crazy person CRAZier and start writing bad reviews to get even.. That'll Show him!! Bad Book Bad Book.. Don't buy it.. In sorry, I'll brb.. Ok had to take my meds.. Where was I?! Oh Yes.. Speaking of writers Fan Clubs, let's face it when your talking about this Genre of books, well it attracts all sorts of personalities.. And let's just say I wouldn't be going on a BioOutbreak/Horror Story Fan Club Cruise to the Caribbean even if it was free.. I would imagine the amount of Psych Meds onboard could probably Mellow out the Populations of most smaller Countries.. For a few months easily.. And the chances of something Unexplained happening might be decent.. Hey that might make a good story?? Better give me credit for Idea or I'll write a bad review!! Hahaha enjoy the book, make up your own mind,! Write fairly, be honest as you can, or be like me write insanely crazy stuff, but write something.. Lets not let the only reviews be those which are bought & paid for & those with Axes to grind.. Takes a few minutes to show appreciation for a story the writer probably spent in some cases 8 to 10 long sleepless Hours writing..so take 8/10 minutes and tell them what you thought of it!! P.S. Spoiler Alert.. How many people don't read it because it says Spoiler Alert?? Come on people No SPOILERS!! It's a review not a narration.. Nobody wants the story ruined or explained in details that Spoil the story?? If you can't write a review without Spoilers Then maybe have one of your Cats write up something of interest as I'm sure the Intellectual differences between the two of you is staggering.. Had to be said.. Thanks for reading my Crazyness and I hope to bore you again sometime with my senseless, meaningless JibberJabber while trying to review a book.. If you read this far you deserve a cookie because I know I didn't read this far and I wrote it.. Good Day Mate.. That's Australian for Goodbye! No I'm not Australian!
Great storyline (if you've not heard of he bet which led to the origin of this story then you should research it!) with what Butcher was given to work with its amazing how in-depth and drawing this story has become! But then again were talking about Jim Butcher here and so im little surprised!! He is a genius with the pen and his imagination is sure to entertain for generations and generations to come!! Thank You Jim for allowing us to go on these journeys with you!
Not much to do with the Warded Man or the Demon of the Desert but a full story of many of the side characters of the previous novels. I liked it because it really built up these characters and now gives you the story from the eyes of multiple eyes and perceptions. It's my belief that this will only make the next installment That much better because you'll feel invested from so many points of view. Like any true story there are many story plots, many schemes and many people all with their own agendas making up the Whole, some you'll like some you'll hate, some you'll root for and some you'll dam but ultimately whatever the story has in store for us is Enevera!
I look forward to starting next book. Under Antarctica lies a world of monsters and so called gods of Ole! Follow the lead as he finds his way then finds himself in this world under the ice!!
Thought it to be related to recent TV series The Dig. Pleasantly surprised that it wasn't and it was very good story, original and gripping!
It may take a little bit to get you sucked in but once it does your hooked!! Twist turns at every corner.. Once you feel you know who's who and what's what you'll find you don't know anything!!
Nothing more need be said!! If you start you won't want to stop till its done!! Great vision of a possible future & tells all around brutal truths of how dark man can be, how low civilization can fall, how people's civility lasts about as lo gas the food & just how fast everything we know can be thrust into depths deeper then any imaginable hell! Don't take my word on it, enter Cannibal Reign & judge for yourself..just be sure not to forget your Cyanide Capsule!! Trust me.. You don't wanna be caught without it..
Unknown, I do not read printed books. After finding audible I doubt I could go back to it now if I ever did.
Without spoilers I'd say I enjoyed the twists & turns that kept me guessing, trying to figure things out and finding myself surprised again & again
If you like the Young Adult Adventure, Love, mystery style writing then you'll like this story
Owning well over 900 audiobooks, it's hard to put a number on this one. If pressed I might fairly say it is possibly in the top 100 or so.. I can't imagine that this was actually 5 separate books at one time & can imagine the decision to break it up into 5 books originally sounded like a great financial decision at the time but ultimately ended up hurting In the long run because I will be honest with you I wouldn't have made it through book one with any interest in buying book two!! It was tough for me getting into this one!
That it eventually pulled me into the story and made the time invested feel worth it.
Nothing really stood out to me from the reader neither good nor bad.
Probably "Nothing like the book" because I'd imagine Hollywood would Chop this book to pieces and probably ruin it.
I hope the audiobook industry takes note of this situation and stops taking Novels, breaking them up into 4-5 separate books charging 4-5 separate fees, the story Suffers!! It's become obvious when it's being done and most people will wait until "The Box set" is released!
All the StarForce books.
like Father Like Son
If you are even looking to purchase the 10th book then there's nothing I can tell you that you don't already know! I look forward to the next 10 books from this generation & then maybe 10 from adventures of grandson of Kyle Riggs hahaha
