The author has a Ph.D in physics so naturally I expected some good sci-fi theoretical physics to go along with a little alternative history. I fell asleep halfway through the second book of the series. If physics was involved in this story, I lost it in the black hole of boredom.
I have the impression that the story is good and unique, but the narrator is soooo laborious that it is hard to tell. The narrator emphasizes every word and is incredibly slowwww.
The third book had a different narrator and it is much more enjoyable.
You are made up of 1's and 0's. Don't fight it, rewrite it.
This is fun sci-fi with a great performance by Luke Daniels.
Once you start this series you do not have to continue, you will want to continue. Each book in the series just gets better and better. I compare all other books in this genre to this series.
James Marsters is the only narrator for this series. When you hear his interpretation of the characters you believe he is the characters.
This series just keeps rolling. When the fifth book comes out, I will be re-listening to the previous books before starting the fifth. The series is that good.
This is a very good series. Good story, Good action, Good characters, and Good performance. Each book in the series just gets stronger because gooder is not a word.
The second book of this series takes the story to the next level. It does not wallow in what we already know from the first book. It does what a second book is suppose to do, advance the story. And the story definitely gets better.
The performance is first rate. The narrator becomes the characters.
Combine Nicolas Cage's character in the movie Next and Ben Aaronovitch's character Thomas Nightingale and you have Alex Verus.
The book is very entertaining and inventive enough not to be boring if you have read The Dresden Series and the Iron Druid Series.
Still an excellent job by the narrator.
The story was good and interesting. The ending was unexpected and leaves you wanting for the next book in the series.
When listening to the book you forget it is a book. The narrator is so believable as the main character that you begin to think he is the main character telling you what has and is happening.
Sometimes I want a book that puts me with the characters, instead of in my car listening about the characters. This book puts me in London with the characters.
The characters are real people in an unreal real world. The humor is good and subtle. The command of the English Language is very refreshing.
