In the top half
I like the beginning scenes as the book opens...
There are a lot of characters in this books and the narrator brings a distinct voice to each one.
No, just found the story interesting (but I'd on only suggest listening to this story after listening to other books in this series first.
The story is quite good, however since the author intended to write a story with so many characters, there is not much time spent on each one. Characters make 1 main appearance (may show up briefly later), then they're gone. I like the concept of listening to a book with several characters from other stories all together, but prefer stories with less characters so there could be more detail on the ones that play a part in the story.
Yes. The story is surprisingly unique. I like the fact that the author explains the backstory of the main characters, it helps listeners understand were the characters are coming from-- their motivations, beliefs and actions.
Yes- but it is too long to do so...
I like the story -- it's not predictable and the author is very good at story telling, It's easy to get lost in the story, and it keeps the listener wondering what will happen next.
Interesting and Sexy
No. The story is good, but there are better books out there in this genre.
Have shovel will travel
The story was good but at times seemed a bit formulaic. Also the meeting and subsequent relationship of the main characters seemed unlikely. More backstory on the female main character would have been nice. Also the last third of the book was slow.
exciting, unpredictable, entertaining
Dresden for sure!
I like the fact that the characters sound different, they have distinctive, individual voices.
Yes. Absolutely. I found myself taking a longer route home from work to continue listening to the story.
I like all the books in the Dresden series. The author is great a creating unique, entertaining stories.
Yes, but I would read the reviews of other listeners first.
Probably not unless there was a really good review about a new book.
It was one of those situations in which you listen for a couple of hours, get bored, but want to finish listening to see how the story ends.
I think the story was ok, however the story seemed a bit dated (main character wearing pannyhose/stockings, some use of slang, etc) Also the story got a bit cheesy at times (a bunch of women wearing baby-doll nightgowns). I'm sure the author has good stories she's written, however this was not one I'd reccommend.
The setting is the quite unique: a sci-fi tale told set in 1984 Japan. Also the story is not predictable, you can't guess what will happen next
I didn't like the ending. It was too abrupt and still left questions unanswered.
I thought the narrators did a great job. There are multiple narrators and they were able to help convey the personality of characters through their narration.
I think I would take the private investor character out to dinner (I forgot his name) he seemed to be incredibly smart. He was so interesting that I would listen to a book just with him as the main character.
I was underwhelmed by the plot. It was ok, but not as good as I thought it would be. It was especially irritating to listen to the thoughts of the main 2 characters -- because they would often repeat or rephrase thoughts, or have some tangent, off the wall thoughts that didn't seem to move the story along. I also didn't like the fact that some questions are not answered at the end of the story. However overall it was a good (long) listen.
