Yes. Patrick Rothfuss has done a great job crafting a new fantasy world and created a great set of interesting characters to love and hate.
The story is well paced with just the right amount of interesting folklore/history included to provide the reader with an understanding of the world in which the story takes place.
A great intro to what should turn out to be a great series.
This book made me laugh hard, cheer, put me in awe. One hell of a great book, it is now my favorite among the 105 audible titles. I really want to give it 6 stars all around, outstanding writing and narration.
Don't fear the science, its fast paste and never slows the pace of the book. You don't have or knowledgeable lover of science or SF fan to love this ride.
I could on and on, but why bother, you can read the other lengthy 5 and 4 star reviews.
I just wonder how soon we will starting seeing dialog from this book being paraphrased in our daily conversations to make a point, or express a thought.
If you get the book.. have fun in your for a ride.
Yes, and that rare thing for myself. My usual opinion would be why would I listen to again when I can listen to something new, but in case the answer is YES. The story while simple is awesomely entertaining and the Bronson Pinchot does a outstanding job bringing the characters to life in all three books.
Tie between Faye Vierra and Jake Sullivan, though Toru is right up there as well. The characters are all so well written and brought to life by Bronson that it really is hard to choose a favorite.
Yes, I could have easily taken a long drive and hoped to get stuck in traffic.
Sad to see the series end, I will miss it and will listen again. Still what a great conclusion.
Not every book in the series has been a solid addition, but this one stands out and brings to a close the story for the beloved characters. The end is both unexpected and thought provoking. I admire the strength of character Forstchen wrote into his characters and will miss them as book 9 moves on to focus on the children of the characters that this series has followed. Overall I highly recommend the series, though some of the books are not as good as others the series as whole was well written and well narrated.
Most fans of King will readily admit King has his ups and downs. Doctor Sleep is definitely one of his ups. In my opinion this should be ranked among his best novels, along side It, The Stand, and of course the The Shining. The story is well developed and Kings melding of the Shining back story into this Novel was excellent, never coming off as forced.
Will Patton was outstanding as the narrator, bringing all the characters to life with voices that fit perfectly to the personalities.
Though the book is well narrated and story is decent, it just did not do the series justice. This was clearly an attempt to breathe new life into the series with the children of beloved characters. However, another book is not likely to follow and the concept has run its course. I loved the series and book 8 provided a great close. Forstchen should have left the series alone.
The basis story main be simplistic, but I found I agree with history. This is great book, and would encourage even those who would normally not like westerns to give it chance. The characters are well written. Ladies Mattie Ross is hoot and one strong willed woman, one the best female characters among the books I have read.
A solid addition to the world created in "Hard Magic". Quickly paced with excellent narration. I laughed and cheered and look forward to listening to the third book.
Thoroughly entertaining listen. Larry Correia as created some great characters. You know your getting wrapped up in a book when you find yourself cheering out loud in the car in saying yea take that you @%@#. Look forward to the listening to the rest of the series.
It was well written account, and even though it was bit slow, it was still enjoyable. I honestly expected it to be slow, but I enjoy nature documentaries and thought I would give this book a shot. I am glad I did.
Simply put, it was fun. It grabs you from the start and keeps the pace going. I enjoy a complex story with lots of depth, but occasionally you want something that does not take it self to seriously and is just a fun read. This book fits the bill, perfectly. It may have a few plot holes and even be little predictable at points, with some obvious foreshadowing, but still just plain enjoyable. I like complex books, but after a few stressful weeks at work, this was exactly what I needed.
The opening scene of the book. I could mention a another scene but it would be a spoiler.
The opening scene of the book.
I look forward to the rest of the series.
