The storyline progresses wonderfully, if a bit slow, over this entire series of books. The narrator does a wonderful job using tone and accents to help the listener identify the various characters. This book is by turns witty, exciting, adventurous and a very unusual romance. I started with Soulless and am now reading the final book in the series - I simply couldn't stop. I enjoyed the writing style of Gail Carriger, I really felt as though I was immersed in Victorian England, be it an alternate universe with werewolves, vampires and ghosts being commonplace.
This series is unique in its style and composition.
The nuances of the characters are brought alive by Emily Gray, something that would be missed by merely reading the story.
I enjoyed all the books in this series and I really hope there are more to come.
I love the way Luke Daniels brings all the characters to life. The second he starts "talking", you know exactly which character is speaking.
Yes, definitely. I would listen to the entire series again - after I finish the last book anyway, lol. This may be meant as a young readers book, but even in my fifties I find it wonderful to enter Eragon's world, and Gerard Doyle brings it all to life for me, filling my mind with the beauty, and terror of living in this wonderful world Christopher Paolini has created. I especially love how he has brought all the varied species of his world together in a common cause. The Elves, Dwarves, Humans, Dragons, and even Ergls can co-exist when they have something they believe in to fight for.
Eragon of course, but not just because he's the hero of the story. He is human, he makes mistakes and learns from them. I've watched him grow and become the man he's meant to be. I've feared for him, cared for him, and been filled with a parents' pride as he makes the hard trip from boyhood to manhood.
He brings life to all the characters, giving each their own voice and personality. He makes them real for me. I would listen to anything he narrates, he could make the phone book sound interesting.
Loved every book in this series, and I would listen to anything narrated by Tavia Gilbert. She makes every character come alive with their own personality and quirks. I never felt like someone was reading me a book, but that I was listening to a story as it happened.
I'm a fan of Christine Feehan's work, but this is one of her best. A great story line, interesting characters, and of course, the requisite love interest - but without the overabundance of lovemaking that mars some of these types of novels. I want romance, and hot sex between the main characters, but mostly I want a great story to read and this one really delivered.
Mind Game kept me enthralled with its fast paced action. The romance was there too, but it was part of the story, not the story itself. I like a good romantic fantasy, as long as there is more storyline than just romance. This one delivered in full.
