I would definitely recommend this book to a friend, and have. If you're reading the entire story, it gives you such good information as to what happened to Roger's parents. I'm in the middle of MOHB and am just waiting for some of the scenes from THIS book to happen, but from a different point of view...
When the sirens start and Jerry heads for the tunnels... you just know what's going to happen and all the pieces sadly fall into place.
I didn't like his voice at first, but the first time he started with the Scottish accent, I smiled big and sat back. I'm so used to Davina Porter reading this series, but he does a really fantastic job. I can't put my finger on anything specific, but I'd for sure give it a listen.
Oh definitely, especially since it's so short.
For sure read this after ECHO and before MOHB. It's less than 2 hours! Do it, I say!
Gosh, I don't know. Pretty high up there though. I was laughing out loud (literally), crying, scandalized, and at the end my heart was pounding and I was grinning from ear to ear.
I can't say without giving away spoilers. The very last moment of the book was definitely memorable!
She does them all so well, it's hard to choose. Probably Jamie... I love how she does the Scottish accents. Rachel was pretty good too though.
Oh yes. This book had all of the ups and downs. There was one scene though where I had to put down my game I was playing on my phone because it was so sad, I felt like nothing was right in the world. And then of course, the ending that I already mentioned.
If you have read the other 7 books, this book is a MUST. It brings a bit of resolution to some of the things that happened in ECHO, and does not leave you saying, "She ended it THERE?!?" this time. LOL I loved how some of the characters who haven't interacted much, if at all, before had a chance to do so here. There were also cameos of several characters from the past. Makes me (hope &) wonder who is going to pop up in Book 9....
Yes, I would recommend this audiobook. It gives some good background information into the history between John & Percy, and the nasty argument between John & Jamie that led to John secretly figuring out that Jamie had been raped by someone in the past. Events in this book come up again in ECHO and MOHB, so it's nice to have that background knowledge.
Gosh, I don't know. I don't think I CAN compare it to another book, except for another Lord John book!!
Maybe that argument between John & Jamie. John goes there for help and ends up alienating Jamie instead.
Um... I'm no good at marketing. Maybe... "When a man REALLY loves his brother...." hahaha
This is a really good book. However, as John and Percy are lovers, there are some scenes that are quite graphic. So if you're uncomfortable with that, maybe get the whispersync version so you can do a little peek here & there of the text to try to skip it and then start listening again? I got through it, but came out with alot more insight into how "things are done" than I had before.
I don't know, I didn't read this one in print.
At the end when you find out why the Compte wasn't killed all those years ago.
Michael. I'm hoping he comes up again in later books.
I wouldn't. The name is perfect, and each person has their own definition. You have to read it to see.
While I did enjoy this book and am glad I read it, I think I could just tell friends in a sentence or two what happened and they wouldn't have lost much by having the bare bones facts vs listening. Which I would not say is the case with any of DG's other books, including A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows.
I found another listener's comment from about a week ago. I've listened to this book once before and am on my second round of the series preparing for Book 8 in June. Originally, I downloaded the book to my Sansa Fuze and I SWEAR I heard this scene (it's quite unforgettable). I no longer have a computer with Windows on it & unfortunately Audible doesn't support Linux so I can't redownload it to check if it's just a download format issue. I just compared the print copy using the Look Inside feature on Amazon and sure enough it skips the scene from somewhere on page 241 through most of 245. They are currently researching it & added me to the ticket so I'd get notified when it was fixed. :o(
But, hey, as far as the book as a whole goes... I love it!!! Great series and if you're on #4 already, you're probably hooked. And it just keeps getting better! MUST READ!
