No. There were a few bright spots, such as Shawn Speakman, for whom the book was put together.
This was such a dissappointment for me personally. I'm a big fan of many of the authors, but there were sooooo many boooring stories. I hope Shawn was helped by sales for his condition, as his story was the best of the lot for me.
Slowly - Good - Better
Jeff does a phenomenal job- really keep me in the book, especially the beginning, which is not so great.
This book took a while to get going. The beginning is a drunk guy wandering around nonchalantly. It's not until at least a fourth of the way, the story finally picks up. The main character is difficult to take seriously through a lot of the story and this is unusual. He is funny for the most part, though. Not a great book for sure, but good enough I will listen to the next one.
Anthony Bowden does a fantastic job narrating this installment of Jeremiah Hunt Chronicle. The story is not great, it's a good story with what I would call an interlude in L.A. Jeremiah is developing and becoming something of an anti-hero.
The story was just weird enough, strange enough, different enough, and spooky enough to make for a very entertaining book.
This is a very unique take on zombies and the zombie apocalypse, told from several different participant perspectives. Way cool story with great narrration(with a name like Finty how could it not be!)
This was a pretty good short story. I listened to this mainly to get a feel for the series, like whether I wanted to start listening.... or not. I really think I could have enjoyed this more if the super bad guy wasn't so easy to beat. I mean really, you sing bad songs and he goes sploosh! I liked the characters, but the story left me really undecided.
Michael Kramer does a fantastic job. He is soooo gooood with subtle nuances and inflection. His voice carries emotion and feeling without drastic changes in tone.
The 2nd installment rolls right along where the first left off. Good story, great characters, and a phenomenal narrator. I'm really curious where this series leads, the next book should be a pivotal point in the story, creating stages for an uber supernatural showdown of sorts.
I really like the main character in this series. He's funny....very funny, clever, vulnerable, likes the action, has woman problems (like every man... sooner or later), and he's funny. The story is not bad, not great, but seems a little MHI esque. I think if I were reading instead of listening this would not have been nearly as good. The delivery by Roger Wayne is incredible, especially with the humor. Overall a pretty solid listen, I did laugh at quite a few different points in the story and will listen to the next.
Anthony does a perfect job with Jeremiah's character. He's pretty strong with other characters, but has the lead nailed to perfection.
I gave the story a 4, but that's being generous. I like how the author jumped around some with the characters, but the main story lines crossed without ever being really affected by one another. It was Jeremiah on a quest because his lady witch friend said so, meet some spooky characters, deal with death on another plane, and oh by the way, the FBI is trying to get you. All of this and it was all kinda.....casual. I really enjoy the story and all the characters, especially listening to Anthony as Jeremiah. The author writes good characters and that really keeps me listening and wanting more, actually thought there could have been more to the story's other-world side.
Bronson does a fantastic job as usual. Very cool short story with tons of Correia's cool world action.
This was much shorter than several other BSI books. It is another very good story focused more on Cantan and Jeanie, mixed with a windigo problem in Chi-town. Another great performance by DA coupled with a cool story, just wish there could have been a little more to it, was kinda short. Eagerly waiting for the next installment.
This is my 1st Hobb book, and it is very different than most of the audiobooks I listen to. At first I kept waiting for the adventure to start, but was very intrigued by the characters and the way in which Langton told the story. About mid way through the book, which is around 25 hours BTW, I could not put it down. Although this is clearly fantasy, Hobbs reminds me more of a Steinbeck type writer. The story and characters are so compelling you can't put it down. If you're looking for tons of action and snarky characters, this book is not for you.
