Stuart Neville never disappoints and neither does Gerard Doyle's narration. Excellent and involving, like the previous Jack Lennon stories.
Doyle brings authenticity to the story and characters.
I look forward to more from both author and narrator.
The narration was very un-professional. Good attempt, but it sounded like something I would expect from a freebie from Libra-Vox.
The story was pretty good, but I couldn't finish it due to the bad narration.
If anyone was wondering how this unusual book could be turned into a movie, now as you may know. It wasn't. The book is excellent when it's good and a bit dull when it's not. I couldn't think how the movie would be made from a series of interviews, as it turns out, it just used the title.
Honestly, I have to admit suffering some disappointment with Kings more recent works, starting with From A Buick 8, I felt he was not in his groove anymore. This story changes my mind. It was excellent, emotional writing from beginning to end. Great characters and great narration. To anyone who felt the same as me about Kings recent works, just to let you know, HE'S BACK!
This is a very personal story. The things that the soldiers go through become very real to the listener. You can feel the authors emotions, and ray Porter does a great job of narrating.
I loved the first in this series, "Name of the Wind". I was excited about this one and I got it right away, I was leary of the 43 hour length. About half way through the third download, I realized I was getting bored. I stuck with until the end of the third section, I was still bored. There just is not enough going on here to recommend it. The author should not have gone for the 1000 page book, a good editor would have made this clear to him. The first story had action and adventure, this has little action, no adventure, but plenty of romance, it's almost like a young adult romance novel. An abridged version would be a good idea. But, for me it's too late, I doubt I will be back for the third installment. I spoke to a coworker who was reading it, he really like the first one too, in fact I got it from Audible on his recommendation. He stopped reading it halfway through for the same reasons I stopped listening. Not much happening and too long. The narrator is very good, he did what he could with it, a valiant effort. He couldn't breath life into it forever, which is how long it seemed to take. I actually feel bad for being so critical, but I am trying to be honest, my apologies to Patrick Rothfuss.
I read and listen to a fair amount of horror stories. This one actually creeped me out. Once you figure out where the story is taking you, you have to keep listening from absolute morbid curiousity. Very original, and great narration, I will keep an eye out for more stories by D'Lacey, and I hope they are read by Sorcha Cusack again, she made the story even more creepy.
Just as good as the first in the tilogy, which I thought was excellent. I can't wait for the third. It's a great take on the an old myth, vampires. Not for Twilight fans, in these stories the vampires are pure evil, just like they should be.
