    Anne Rice continues her astonishing Vampire Chronicles with the story of Lestat's passionate quest for redemption, goodness and the love of Rowan Mayfair. Here are all the brilliantly conceived principal characters that make up Anne Rice's world of vampires and witches. And here is the spirit of Julien Mayfair, guardian of the family, determined to torment Lestat eternally for what he has done to Mona.

    What disappointed you about Blood Canticle?

    The narration was just awful, i was deeply disturbed and unsettled by the voice timbre and style of the narrator.


    Has Blood Canticle turned you off from other books in this genre?

    it has turned me off of ever listening to an audio book again


    Would you be willing to try another one of Stephen Spinella’s performances?

    never again... ever..


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Blood Canticle?

    i would change the person reading it, the book is amazing i had hoped to listen and love it more however i wish i had never done so.

  • Chase

    • UNABRIDGED (4 hrs and 17 mins)

    Story
    (32)

    Ben Chase is a war hero, but a reluctant one. He struggles with bitter memories and feels alienated from the culture to which he has returned. When he claims that a psychopath is stalking him, he has by then made such an outsider of himself that no one believes him. He must resurrect the repressed warrior within to save himself and a woman he comes to love. Heroes need monsters to slay, and they can always find them - within if not without.

    What would have made Chase better?

    after a first bad experience , i tried out another audio book, i love Koontz, however although the voice of the narrator is easier to listen too , it gets very monotone, and he misses cues for dramatic effect as well as rhythm, taking it back to a bad overall experience, i couldn't listen past the first ten minutes.


    If you’ve listened to books by Dean Koontz before, how does this one compare?

    no other experience not willing to take a chance again after this


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    poor rhythm, trying to speak for a female character and sounding like a man mocking a woman's voice
