What a story
It stands alone, with over 100 books in my library to date this is by far the best written book and narrated I have had the pleasure of listening. There are some great non-fiction but this is the best.
The best reader by far, he has a pleasing voice, a great ability to adapt his voice to the scenes and makes you feel as addicted to his narration as the written word. He seems to give the emotion, the tension and the horror that perfect weight. No reader could feel that emotion so perfectly.
Yes, addictive, so very descriptive and so wonderfully interwoven I think I would scream if I never heard it. The story is brilliant. I have heard that Mr king does not think this his best, it may not be but to me it is. I feel a strong emotion at his descriptive abilities one of awe, one of jealousy at such power and one of pleasure to be guided by an incredible writer and ably assisted by a suburb narration. I feel the evil in Harold, the confusion in Nadine, the fear in Fanny expertly expressed by Grover Gardner. The story does anger me for some events I find shocking but then that's the greatest ability of a writer to bring out not theirs but your own emotion.
This should be in every audible member's library. It's long but it's as Tom might say 'M O O N and that spells incredible'
This book was actually recommended to me and although not even in my interests I found this book remarkable and eye opening. I intend listening to again to cover what I may have missed. Well worth the credit or purchase
Resurrecting my Interest
Duke Fontaine is very good, I enjoyed his performance and will look for others he has done.
This is a good series, like all series should be listened one after the other yet still enjoyable. A. American and Duke Fontaine work well together in this series and make a good team.
Yes, The manner in which Edgar Allan Poe writes may be considered by many to be an old style of writing (which of course it is) however the word play is brilliant and many today could learn such skills
Stories that never bore, never grow old, never die
Bloody Good Yarn
I have read this book twice, listened to it as well and love every moment. It is a great story
This book has always been one of my favourites for the genre and although not true (or is it) you could believe the events happen. In later Ryan books Marcus Ramius is mentioned just adding value to the Ryan books.
I dare anyone to listen/read this and not hear the crashing waves, the action and the boys own action.
Tom Clancy with certainly be missed.
A fun story.
I felt the wait for book 8 was a long one, I enjoyed the previous 7 that much so I had high a need for it sooner and expectations as well as questions. Would this be the end, how could Mark Tufo finish the series or continue it and in this I found out and Mark Tufo did not let me down.What did I love best about Zombie Fallout 8 - the wit, Mark Tufo has a gift for throwing out those lines that give that chuckle of pleasure, irony, a shake of the head and a giggle.
Having only heard Sean Runnette in this series I would say he is perfect. Sean has Talbot down perfectly.
Oh boy yes, but unfortunately us chumps have to work.
I have loved this series, and recommend it to anyone who likes a darn good zombie book and with humor, with vampires too and characters you can imagine.
I have to say Tripp is by far my favorite character. He keeps it real for me. How he survived the Zombie hordes is perhaps another story (hint, hint) Mr. Tufo.
I have had the pleasure of listening of the previous 7 in a series which for me gave me a month or more of isolation and high listening stats which proves the enjoyment. And this one would have been the icing and now I ask will there be more.... I will wait.
The Perfect Version
This was a great listen, so many stars and so many characters. Max Brooks wrote a brilliant book with great description and great words and each word spoken by stars who made the work come alive
It is not the end of the world, but the start of recovery
An enjoyable version and one I am truly pleased to have heard and have in my library.
High, I am a fan of the three leads and it was great to hear them all together in this.
Each are fine speakers and all had great performances in this. Done in front of a live audience this protection took me there and in my minds eye I could see each of them there in front of me. A great performance.
We Miss Fun.
I had never read Fanny Hill (nor heard it until now) but knew off it. I knew of its reputation and history but on a whim decided to purchase and have a listen. The first thing I noted was how wound up we have become with a 'naughty story' a little bit of 'titillation' can be fun and Fanny Hill shows this. Why have we become so sour on the subject of titillation. Before TV and radio, at a time when people were more serious along came Fanny Hill and its like, shock, horror and giggles.
Now is that not fun?
Yes, most certainly. Omid Djalili spins a tale like no other. Down to Earth, an hint of crazy, lots of humor and of course, honesty. One listening will not be enough.
The choice of Omid doing the narration is a true gem of a decision. I have admired this man's humor for many years and no one but him could do himself justice. You can picture Omid in the Studio having fun narrating this book.
I have his other two books and enjoy them immensely.
I have to say, in today's age there are jokes that would be considered wrong if said by any other person but Omid somehow gets away with it and makes us laugh doing it.
I find Omid a great comedian, I adore everything he does. He is able to, in this day of (as I see it) too much political correctness say what he does in a manner we just love, yet potentially said by others could be seen as racist, derogatory and offensive. Somehow Omid gets away with it - to our enjoyment. An honest comedian.
Well done Omid a fine book, a fine narration. And made a few travels on Public Transportation a lot more fun for me.
A fine listen
Yes and was annoyed I could not.
I have really enjoyed this series and do certainly recommend it to my audible loving post apocalyptic fellow readers (listeners)
You will not be disappointed.
