The writer has gotten totally lazy with this series. I enjoyed the first two books as the author was building the world and drawing in various mythologies. With this installment, I found myself just hoping that the male sibling would just be killed off as the author lazily just had him "be confused" into switching alliances. The author should have written true uncertaintly into the series to make it difficult to know which side was "right." I will not be buying the rest of the series as I just don't care about the characters anymore.
Poor plot choices
First time with this reader. I prefer narrators who use more inflection and emote more with their voice. As a reference Wil Wheaton is one of my favorite narrators.
ambivalence and indifference
Great narration by Bernstein as usual. The only part of the story that annoyed me was the stupidity of the protagonist at the end. I will try the next installment.
I always enjoy Jasper Fford's silly stories. My only complaint about this is that the narrator's voice sounded too old for the character she was reading. She would have been better suited for the voice of Tuesday Next.
I enjoy Anne Rice's vampire mythology. I know the characters and wanted the update. What I did not like was Simon Vance as narrator. I don't know how old he is, but, his voice was too old sounding for some of the characters. If he had just narrated without attempting the voice acting this might have been OK.
Continuing the mythology and filling in some untold details from the past.
Based on this, no.
Only if the whole series were done.
Overall I don't regret the listen.
Interesting world building. The first half of the book was decent. For some reason the author went total melodrama in the second half. I was actually hoping for the death of the protagonist as he got so whiney.
Great voice acting, pleasant narration.
I think I might be done with this series. The first few books drew me in with a faster pace. Now the plot just plods along.
Not his best. Very slow moving.
Decent voice characterizations. Not spectacular
I've stopped caring about these characters.
