Of course - I recommend this (and the trilogy it's linked to) to everyone I know, all the time!!!! Why? Because it's GREAT. This book in particular, is great because it is stories of characters you meet in the main trilogy but don't know enough about.... its great to have this type of book - getting to know more about people you like and love in the books you love
Eric's was my favourite story/character... it made me go back and re read (listen to) the original As the World Dies trilogy
This is an excellent accompaniment to the As The World Dies books!! I love it.
Yes, I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend. It was spot on.
This story flowed wonderfully. It was a lovely and emotional story. The characters were fleshed out nicely, and a bond and connection was felt with both the champions and the antagonist.
His reading of the novel was well done. His voice really added an emotional quality.
Fun, intriguing, compelling.... There is humour, there is mystery, and you cannot stop reading (listening to) it.
My favourite character was Marcus. Despite his faults he is a really nice guy, and he is so full of self doubt that you can't help but like him
Nicely paced narrator......
Loved how parts of this book tied in with another of Cheryl Kay Tardif's novels. Was unexpected and hilarious. LOVE IT
Definitely. It was an excellent story, and very spooky in parts.... loved it. Am so happy I bought it
I liked just about every character.... had a soft spot for Irma and Ed, and Jay of course.
Her reading was not too fast, nor too slow (a big issue with a lot of narrators), and she didn't do too badly with the different voices. Her voice was easy to listen to as well
Adam and Ashleigh
I finished this book at 2am this morning - couldn't stop listening to it.... And even debated turning the lights on at a few points
This was hard, as all the characters have unique qualities that I loved each of them for. But I really liked Zadok and Barak. Zadok because he is so loyal, and you can't help but love him.... and Barak, because he is, at heart, a good man trying to do the best he can
The scene where Zadok and Devora first meet is my favourite. It melted my heart.
Yes. This book was so far away from my normal genre of reading (horror/thriller/zombie etc) that I wasn't expecting to like it at all - a friend told me to read it. Wow, I loved it!! I'm not going to rush out and buy another novel like this, but I would re-buy this one in a heartbeat. So, yes, definitely I would recommend it.
It was humourous, and interesting. I kept expecting one thing to happen and it didn't - which made me very happy YAY - so without giving away any spoilers - the bit I can't tell you about without ruining the story is the best bit LOL
I don't know what a Scottish accent sounds like - but I thought she did a great job. She had a great pace, and I liked that she tried to differentiate the characters voices
I laughed out loud a few times. Quite a few times actually. Gasped in a few places.... I didn't cry - but I could have.....
The first little big of the book was boring, and hard to get through - but I knew that once Claire was in 18th Century Scotland the story would get better - and I'm so glad I kept with it.... Once it got good - it got very, very good.
Yes - it was great. It is one of my favourite Stephen King novels
The only let down is the random music, which, like I said, was random, and it was at times louder than the narrators.... could definitely have done without.
It was pretty good - definitely on my list of keepers and listen to agains....
The story stopped and changed a few times, which made it a little hard to follow a few times, but once I realised what was happening I was all good again.
Definitely - it's a really good book
The characters were so real, the storyline was great, just enough action vs humour vs scare.
Bruster (sp) was definitely my favourite. I quite liked Sherman too
Oliver Wyman did an exceptional job with the voices.
It was a pretty good book to listen to. Interesting story/stories, and a few different narrators - which is a first for me. I will listen to it again.
There was a "ooh" moment half way through - don't want to say too much in case it gives something away, but it was a good little surprise.
For the most part the narrators's performances were pretty good - except when they were supposed to be chinese/Japanese/Russian - and they all sounded half German....
This book has already been made into a film - and let me tell you IT IS NOTHING LIKE THE MOVIE!!!!!!! I think two lines from the book were used in the movie and that was it....
OMG - everything!!!
RUNE!!!! It was absolutely fantastic to hear his story - it gave his character from the trilogy so much more depth. Even though I already loved his character, this solidified how I felt and more. Wish there was more of him!!!
I laughed. I felt sad.
I did feel cranky when the second story was about the Senator, but what the heck, she has a story too - I really did feel it added more knowing this about her.
