I had no idea that Elijah Wood was such a good voice actor. Sometimes I forgot that it was him. I had to remind myself sometimes that it was actually Elijah and not the slave Jim.
The best part was them trying to bust out Jim from the Phelps' and Tom coming up with all the crazy ideas to make it match books he had read. The least interesting part was some of the stories about the King and the Duke.
I tried reading it on my Kindle but it was quite difficult and slow just because of the old style of writing and of the slang used. Elijah did it flawlessly.
It was too long to listen to again, and since it is the first in a series I would listen to all of the other books in the same series before I listened to this book again.
I liked the characters best, especially Miller and Holden. They had a good and "real" dialogue and conversation.
Spoiler: When Miller stayed on the Eros station, I wasn't expecting that.
I have listened to many of the books in the Discworld series and this was not one of the better ones. However I love Stephen Briggs, the narrator.
I had heard so much about this book so I wanted to give it a shot. I haven't read or listened to any of Donna Tartt's other books. But this book wasn't for me. It was too long, the story was progressing too slowly and the main character was annoying. The best thing about the book was Boris.
It wasn't what I was hoping for.
No I don't think so. If this book was made into a movie it would have to be four hours long to manage to fit everything, and that would be one slow and boring movie.
Don't believe the hype. This book was not for me and I won't be reading any of Donna Tartt's other books.
I liked the story and the characters. Strike and Robin make a great team and I am looking forward to more books and see their work evolve.
I think the most memorable part was when Strike entered the house and found the body.
Strike was my favorite, but that is understandable, since he is the main character. Another good charcter was Christian Fischer.
The idea was kind of cool, that there is a government agency collecting scientific advances that would be too early to introduce to the world. Everything else was dull.
I would recommend Suarez's first book Daemon, not any of his other books.
I have read and listened to all of Daniel Suarez's books and they keep getting worse. The first book Daemon was great, then the books started getting more boring by each book released.It is also very irritating that the resolution is so short. The book is almost 14 hours long. The tensions builds up during the whole book and then the end and conclusion is something like 15 minutes. It is like Suarez has thought about the beginning and middle but not the end. Don't just give me the "they lived happily ever after" ending, give me something more.
It is one of the best audio books that I have ever listened to.
My favorite part was when he was growing potatoes on Mars. That just seemed like a crazy idea, but he got really in to it.
I liked the narrator best, he always does a good job and really acts out the characters. The thing i liked the least was the story which was just like the other books.
Yes this is the third Dresden book I listen to, since it is the third in the series. They are all structured the same. Harry is in trouble, Harry doesn't know why, Harry gets hurt, Harry fights, Harry finds out who is behind all the trouble, Harry wins.
He becomes Harry and really acts out his emotions.
Yes I would, but I would recommend the audiobook, not the print version, simply because of the narration.
It had an air about it, it is hard to put my finger on, but I liked the atmosphere. The characters were interesting, the story was good and had a nice pace.
Yes I have listened to him reading Neil Gaiman's American Gods and that was also great.
Maybe, if the subject was interesting enough.
If that friend was really interested in the subject I would recommend it, but for someone wanting some history of New York City I think there are other books that are more interesting.
There was nothing special bout the narrator.
It reminded me a bit about the movie Gangs of New York.
