I love Patricia Briggs' writing. Holter Graham is a very nice choice for narrator, with an amazing range of voice.
Listening to Dick Hill making a bad imitation of an Alabama accent was exceedingly painful. 39 minutes into the performance and I thought my ears were bleeding. You should have chosen a young, southern female narrator as so much of the story involved a young woman. Despite these flaws, the story is worth listening to; we should all examine ourselves and make a choice which side of Good or Evil we stand upon before we are tested in a crisis.
I love the premise of this series and the time period, but the personalities and actions are disappointing. Mathew seems determined to be a punching bag for every bad guy, not capable of defending himself or reacting in time to avoid injury; and I am getting sick of the "I love you too much to love you, so I'm going to treat you like a prick - no wait If I ever get out of this mess I'm going to treat you right" loop that he seems to be stuck in. I've already bought the next in the series, but if this pattern keeps repeating, then the chances of any future purchases of Mr. McCammon's books are doubtful.
It's hard to kick somebody when he's dead, but for any living Authors who want to take Tom's place: you can't keep saying that someone is a good, decent Christian - and then have every other word out of their mouth be the F-bomb, and also start each sentence by taking God's name in vain. Kind of makes me wonder if Tom actually knew what being a Christian means and where he is right now.
Mixing Mythology with Christianity is a non-starter. I really wish I had been warned that this was more of a modern retelling of Greek legends than a book about angels and humans. The heroine was a good character - surrounded by such a bad story.
I almost threw my iPod out the car window after listening to the first 2 hrs. It slowly and painfully improved; and finally reached a satisfying conclusion. Book 4 was about as bad as a story could get, but this was a close second. After listening to great narration in 4 books (again, book 4 was dreadful), I couldn't believe that suddenly all of these young people raised in NYC began speaking with British accents! The narrators were good, but the change was absurd. Enough is enough - I'm done with CC.
Couldn't stand the incessant cursing. Couldn't stand the characters. Couldn't stand to listen to more than 30 minutes of this junk. Need I say more?
Had to stop listening about half-way through. Just got too tedious to continue. With a good editor, this could have been an amazing story.
Hilarious, sexy and easy to relate to. I love Molly Harper's Southern Style Storytelling. Amanda Ronconi is a fabulous Narrator.
It was sad and bitter-sweet at times; but the authors really wrapped up the story in a good way. Now, if you'll just prevent Hollywood screenwriters from turning the movie sequels into their personal prejudice rants (the way they did Beautiful Creatures), I'd be very grateful.
