Yes, it is one of the best books I've read since Name of the Wind.
The twists and turns and more twists and turns.
I'd been hearing about this book for so long. I finally gave in, and gorged myself on it. It was fantastic. I'll say that you can tell that first "book" was the original novella (it was amazing), but it did have growing pains when the author introduced the other viewpoints. Overall it was still great. 5 Stars.
I'll still read Corey. I'll listen to Davies if I have to.
Elvi was fun because she was like a child, all wide-eyed and fascinated by everything.
I would have changed the fact that he was not Jefferson Mays. I hate to judge Davies like this (He's only doing his job), but he got the voice of every character wrong. I've loved these characters for several books now, especially Avasarala (I wanted to scream in all of her scenes). Even after 20 hour of listening, I could not get used to it. Davies wasn't bad, he was just not Mays. It was like when you listen to an audiobook of a series you've always read in print. The way they say everything is just .. off. It's a disjointed feeling.
The story slumped a little, but what can you expect halfway into a long series. It was still enjoyable. If it weren't for the wrong voices, I would have really liked it.
The author narrates it. You know exactly what the author wanted to convey because she performs it. Its also an awesome book.
The most common description of the book is about a woman who writes a travel guide for monsters.
That's true. And its so much more. It's way more engaging that it has any right to be (I haven't read a book so fast since Old Man's War, and that's about the highest praise I can give).
Mur's great. The book's great. Read it.
Everything. And we finally got to see Sabetha!!!! I'm in love too.
His voice brings me back to all the great novels he's voiced. You cna't go wrong with his stuff.
This is the perfect book. Not too complex but easily gripping. Just clean fun.
A Conan story written by a modern author.
The very firs scene!
I have been looking for a a book for several months. It reminds me why I fell in Love with the genre.
The publisher could have offered the supplemental reading material for a proportional price (they want $10+ to get the course outline. I paid ~$11 for the credit which bought the entire course). Does doubling the price seem reasonable for an outline, an outline that can be made into a simple PDF and emailed with little to no additional actual cost to the publisher?This is not an issue with Modern Scholar courses.
I don't think the professor looked at this course as if it was for an audio audience; it seemed he was trying to give regular classroom lectures without any visual keys. Lecturing to an audiobook-only audience is a distinct skill from lecturing to a group of people live.
Avoid buying courses from this publisher until they update their policy on supplemental materials. Suggest Modern Scholar courses if appropriate.
When Lamb first got down and dirty in the bar with the 3 offshoots.
The ending made me smile a lot.
I only wish that I could have downloaded it on my Audible App instead of having to rely on iTunes.
The way he skirted the line between religious sacrilege and religious respect. Williams took an Angel as his main character and managed to make the book not at all about religion.
The Desden Files comes to mind for the tone is not the theme.
Absolutley. Great follow-up to Laviathan Wakes. If you like Firefly, then you'll enjoy the Expanse books.
Avasarala because I want a Grandma like that! Not that my Nana isn't great, but Avasarala's pretty cool.
Just Laviathan Wakes. It was a nice continuation of the series.
