I actually listened to Nocturnal a few years back when it was a free podcast. I then discovered it on audible and added it because its that awesome.
Never a dull moment.
Back when the author read the book in podcast I imagined the characters a little different. Phil's take on the characters is refreshing but he kinda lacks that over the top performance by the author. Great nonetheless.
Heppner isn't too serious and they story goes all out in absurdity and entertainment.
The black Muslim submarine captain who had to get killed off...
In every book in the series there is always a dude who is in a critical situation but is more focused on a belly ache, sore back, venereal disease...
Perhaps, but not anytime soon.
Legacy of the Aldenata series by John Ringo, although that series is about Humanity up against Aliens.
General Nung charging to dead horse. Hes a dumbass but cool.
I finished it quite fast but definitely not in a single sitting.
This story is absurd, ridiculous and extremely far fetched. Fun though.
Maybe a few years from now, its an easy listen but there are so many books to get through.
Jack Kornfield had a book titles something along the lines of "Buddhist psychology". That book is also quite good but is actually a series of lectures recorded at his retreat. His voice can be off putting and he looks nothing like how he sounds.
I particularly liked the section on his experience at the 10 day Buddhist retreat. Ive actually signed myself on to one here in Sydney after listening to this book.
Good book, easy listen.
Blood of Dragons finished the Rain Wild series in a most mediocre fashion. Dragons vs Chalced , hmm let me see whos gonna win...
Hess degenerated into a borderline retarded caricature of the character in the first book while all the reject keepers become cardboard placeholders.
Im sorry to give a Robin Hobb book such a poor score but this one is quite half arsed.
I was actually looking forward to see Thymara's fathers agricultural experiment in the trees but the author seems to have forgotten about the dude altogether.
This performance is bad! How can four books be narrated by 3 different people? Saskia Butler did best, the other 2 not so well. Changing narrators brings about different pronunciation of names which ruins continuity.
Maybe a comedy adaption so bad its good?
It hurts me to be so harsh on an author I grew up with. This series started off good but degenerated into half arsery.
Id say in the top 25 percentile. Great book from an awesome author.
The clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel comes to mind, both books featuring strong young female characters growing up in adverse environments and harsh settings.
The narration isn't bad and the readers voice grow on you after a while. The change of narrators between books is always difficult to get accustomed to with some varying discrepancy in pronunciation, especially in names.
Greff is a dickhead but I also felt sorry for him. No satisfaction for me in his end.
Final book in the series! Where the fcuk is Perry?
Just when I was getting tired of audible, along comes this book out of nowhere. Sigler is one of my favourites next to Scott Lynch, Joe Abercrombie and Pat Rothfuss.
