Bray does a fantastic job, at some points it was quite freaky and that just made it even more enjoyable. I utilised the whispersync for voice for the first time with this book and you really notice the difference between reading and listening.
This book was interesting, fun and at times a little freaky. Which let's face it, is what Jeremy Robinson does best. I didn't really know what to expect from this book but having heard a lot of positive things about it thought it was high time I gave it a go. I can see why the book got so many positive comments and why so many people consider it to be one of Robinson's best work to date. It really grabs your attention and doesn't let go until the final page.
Dodge is back for a new adventure and it might possibly be better than his first. Dodge, Molly, Hurricane and Padre are thrust into a whirlwind race against time to save the world, will they success? Can they? And at what cost? Some interesting new characters are introduced and as always you are kept guessing as to who is friend or foe. Jeffrey S. Fellin does a remarkable job of bringing the world of Dodge Dalton to life, grabbing the listeners attention and not letting go until the end. His performance of the different characters is impressive, with just slight variations to his tone he can change the whole feel of the situation. Definitely going on the repeat listen pile.
This was a really fun listen, suitable for both teens and adults. I'm going to let my nephew have a listen too as I think he'll really like it. A bully gets his comeuppance, and two boys go on a journey to help him. Climbing mountains and meeting mystical creatures. Wayne Farrell is fantastic, the performances of the characters is so different to the narration, he really does a wonderful job of separating the two. Grabbing the listeners attention. I listened to it in one sitting.
The best way to describe this collection of short stories is weird but wonderful. The writing is good and the narration is smooth. Wayne Farrell is good with strange, their is just something about his voice that suits that type of story. His narration is attention grabbing and it keeps you paying attention until the end. Definitely give it a try.
Wayne Farrell's narration is wonderful, it makes a good story even better. The tones, characterisations, the whole thing is wildly entertaining.
What a great, fun listen. I honestly could not stop listening. Lots of action and extremely well written. Robinson & Holloway are a fascinating combination. I would strongly recommend listening to the other Chess Team/ Jack Sigler Thrillers before picking this one up as it does have some major spoilers that happen in those, however, if you don't mind spoilers go ahead and get this. I can guarantee you will not be sorry.
Jeffrey Kafer is King, I can't imagine anyone else voicing him now. Even when I read, in my mind when King speaks, it's Kafer's voice I hear. He goes a fantastic job of bringing the story alive, how he manages all those difficult pronunciations is beyond me. A first class performance.
This was 57 minutes of pure entertainment. The story is well written and the characters & storyline are fun and interesting. Wayne Farrell does a great job of catching the readers attention and holding it throughout the narration. The characterisations are distinct. I'm looking forward to listening to more.
This is a real quick listen, at under an hour. Very enjoyable and well written, the characters & story are interesting. Wayne Farrell did a fantastic job of bringing this story alive, his characterisations were spot on, he grabs your attention from the beginning. It is a throughly entertaining audiobook.
The music that accompanied the narration was outstanding.
I first read Magic Mirror a few years ago, I remembered that I enjoyed it and that I gave it 5 stars but for whatever reason, its just sat on my bookshelf, its not a book I have re-read. After just finishing the audiobook, my first instinct is to kick myself, why has it taken so long to go back to such a great story? Listening to it, I couldn’t help but notice the growth in author, Sean Ellis having read most of his work, you can see how he has improved, but that doesn’t mean my rating has changed at all, because it hasn’t, it is definitely a 5 star read, I just noticed the progression, which can only be taken as a positive, in my mind at least.
Magic Mirror has a hint of the paranormal, some action and a lot of mystery. Mix in some fantastic characters and that about sums up the book, I could say more, but it would be very difficult to do so without including spoilers and I would hate to give anything away, that would take away from your enjoyment when you read it, go ahead and buy it now, you won’t be sorry.
I have never listened to anything narrated by James Conlan before so this was a new experience for me, I was very impressed, I had no difficulty following the story and it was very obvious when a character changed. I thought the action was narrated particularly well, at times I was so lost in the story and narration that I forgot where I was and what I was doing. Personally, I think that is the reaction you look for in an audiobook, when you know it was worth the time and money. I will definitely be looking for more audiobooks by James.
After reading the first book in the series based on several friends recommendations and really enjoying it, which was a surprise to me, I picked up the audio book of the second book in the series - Fool Moon. Since I have recently started listening to audio books and find myself having more time to commit to listening to a book than to actually sitting down and reading that this is the perfect avenue to continue enjoying the books, or at least, I hope.
When I read the synopsis of this book and was promised werewolves, magic and generally a fun time, I couldn’t help but smile to myself, it definitely sounded like my kind of book. It did not disappoint. Harry Dresden is a really fun and interesting character, I couldn’t help but get wrapped up in the story, how he gets himself into these situations is beyond me, but deep down, wizard or not, he has a heart of gold. I like that in a character, that makes me care about what happens and allows me to become invested in the story. Jim Butcher really know to write a good story and he does it so well. Jim does a fabulous job of keeping characters grounded even with all the magical aspects of the story, really it’s a book about people and what makes them tick and how far they are willing to go for the people they care about…or maybe I’m reading too much into it, either way, it was a fun book.
I had heard from a friend that James Marsters was the narrator and did an incredible job, I have enjoyed every audio book this friend has recommended to date, so when he told me I should check this out, I had faith that he wouldn’t steer me wrong, and he didn’t. James does a wonderful job setting the scene, giving each character a unique sound and feel to them. I never once wondered which character was which or what was going on, it made it extremely easy to follow.
Overall I would highly recommend this book to others that enjoy a well written, fun story.
Wow, what an episode this was. It really keeps your interest, the characters a well written and you can't help but react to what they are going through. I was also totally creeped out - it just had to be spiders and BFS at that.
Sean Mangan did a fantastic job with these books, I really look forward to listening to more of his work. I felt like I was there with the characters.
