I really enjoyed listening to this adapation. I think this should be made into a live action movie!
Charles Stross is one of my favorite authors and this book as read by Gideon Emery showcases what is great about this series... wonderful satire, great wordplay, a fast paced pot and richly described characters both familiar and strange - bureaucrats and bankers, hackers and vicars, sorcerers and vampires, zomies and soul eaters, a violin that kills demons and a cat called Spooky.
Shadows Fall is one of my favorite Simon R. Green books.
I have read it about 5 times since I first brought it many years ago.
I find myself buying new copies as I keep loaning out my current copy.
What a pleasure that the audible version is just as good as the written work.
The narration is wonderful. All the characters are clearly delineated. And the pacing is wonderful.
I have a new way to enjoy this thoughtful, fanciful, evocative work.
I would ONLY if that person was interested in knowing about domestic violence and abuse. I really wanted the writer to have more insight into the why of the abuse - and how she was hooked into a co-dependant role of being the one that "understood" who was going to help her abuser "work" on his childhood.
No - I think it needs a forward or annotation to do a better of job of why the author got hooked into the relationship.
Will not purchase any other books by this author.
What a wonderful listen.
Feels like we are just sitting together and I am listening to her tell her story.
