    Peter V. Brett has won accolades from critics, fans and fellow authors alike for this riveting debut novel. The Warded Man features a world where demons stalk the night, hunting humans who have long forgotten the magic of their ancestors. But all is not lost, as some hold out hope that a savior will release humanity from the demons' terrifying reign.

    Story

    I admit, the book was slow at first and I found myself ready to stop altogether, but then it picked up. I found myself more and more interested in the characters and world around them. There were times where the reality of the world was questionable, but the characters and their development quickly made up for it. All in all, it was a good, rich book and makes me want to move on to the next book of this saga just to see how the story further unfolds.

    Story

    The book itself is not bad. It has good charater development and a plausible storyline that keeps you interested.

    In some cases, you question some of the character's loyality and wonder who's side they are really on. You get to really feel what it's like to be between a rock (Meridian Corporation who want the technology at all costs) and a hard place (Citizens League who want to destroy the technology and everyone associated with it at all cost) and feeling the guilts and pressures of trying to do the right thing while simultaneously trying to protecting the ones you love.

    The only problem I have with the book is the narration. Don't get me wrong. The sound effects and the background noises added to the overall experience of the book. It just took me a while to get use to the narrator and his reading of the book. In some parts, the reading didn't coincide with feel of the situation or the moods of the characters.

    Regardless of my opininated thoughts, it's a good book and leads the way for the next book. I am very interested to see what happens next in this universe Dan Moore has created.

  • Fluke: Or, I Know Why the Winged Whale Sings

    Story

    Just why do humpback whales sing? That's the question that has marine behavioral biologist Nate Quinn and his crew poking, charting, recording, and photographing very big, wet, gray marine mammals - until the extraordinary day when a whale lifts its tail into the air to display a cryptic message spelled out in foot-high letters: Bite Me.

    Jill says: "Entertaining story, as usual!"
    "Good Book, Bad narration"
    Overall

    First off, this is a pretty good book. Not quite as good as some of his books, but still good.

    Second of all, the narration. It made the book sound so lifeless. The reading of the book sounded so monotoned that seemed it sucked the life out of the characters. I'm a certified insomniac and this book nearly put me the sleep just listening to it. If you're going to read a book that's going to be heard worldwide, at least put some feeling and emotions into the reading of the book. It makes it sound more real and inviting as if the speaker enjoys the book he or she is reading. And with Moore's brand of humor, it's needed.

    Again, this is a good book. Not as good as some of his other works, but still good. It's just the narration. Good reading rhythm, but no life.
