Well, I would to my friends who liked military/merc books with lots of blood and guns. LC's books are fun. I belong to a book club - all woman. I picked one of LC's other books and boy did they bitch! Then they had to eat their words once they read the book. This story is no different, the it's a great and fun read - well listen.
MHI sans the cool monsters. Maybe The Expendables or The A- Team. Charters that are fun, interesting and a little broken.
It wouldn't be Correia book without him. I have the biggest nerd crush on BP. I have listened to all of Correia's other books, (MHI series and Hard Magic) and I have been so impressed with his ability to make each character so REAL, even the females ones. Some times when men read a female character it can become distracting - not so with B.P.
I laugh out loud so often I try not to listen in public. And I cry too and I talk to and yell at characters. Really B.P. makes these characters come alive.
I love these books - I can't believe they haven't been made into movies.
Hearing Sean Runnette read "Mike's journal, entry..."
Mike, it's always Mike. Paul is a close second though
It's a tossup between: 1.Mike and Paul on the grocery store drinking beers instead of being in detention. 2. Mike and Paul accidently, well pretty much accidently, setting the principle's car on fire
Yes - but I have to ration out my Mark Tufo/Mike Talbot books. I blew through the ZF series and it came to an end way too fast.
Catching up with one of my favorite characters, Jake Sullivan.
That I got to find out a little bit about what happened after the last Grimnoir book.
All of them - I love love love Bronson Pinchot's narration - he could read my grocery list and I'd be happy
This book series doesn't really 'move' me (except when we didn't know if Fay was going to live), but they are very entertaining, with great characters developement and story lines. Add in Bronson Pinchot amazing voice and you get 90 minutes of bliss
As I wrote in the header, this book was a sip of water - way too short. It was more of an epilog or a novella - but definitely not a stand alone book. Don't get me wrong I loved it - that's why I want MORE of it.
I've listened to so many books that it's not an easy question to answer. Sean Runnette was superb as usual, that man has the golden voice for Mike.The story was great and dreadful at the same time. If you have read the ZF series then you are already familiar with the accident. But this version of it turns out very different for everyone. This story was almost painful in what Mark puts Mike through. It really broke my heart when the bad bad thing happens in Mike's life (which really surprised me when it happened) and I'm NOT an emo reader!
There were quite a few cross over characters (and one that had to be the basis for Vivian D) but of course my favorite was Mike (poor poor Mike)
I've listened to hundreds of hours of SR's voice and he always makes the story better by bringing you right in to the story. You become a witness to the story rather than just an audience member.
Mike (sans his patch or his contact), cuz I want to see his eyes
If you are a Talbot fan and you have read Marks other books, then this is a great addition to the Mike Talbot alter ego/personality club.
BUT if you haven't read any of the other books I would not recommend this book to be your first one. Only because you see a side of him that never was.
Augie making it back to Mike. Augie brings the human out in Mike.
If I had to compare this to another it would have to be to the Z series - only because you can't compare Mike to anyone else. He is an enigma, a legend (in his own mind) and a reluctant hero. This Mike is much more jaded and darker than his ZF incarnation.
He brings Mike to life, he will forever be the voice of Mike and his companions.
Yes and No. Yes because once I start a Tufo book I get sucked in and have to know what's going to happen next. No because once I finish the book I have to wait for the next one to come out and I've never been known for my patience.
This is most certainly a stand alone story; you don't have to read the ZF series. BUT I would highly recommend doing so. You will have a better perspective and understanding of why Mike is the way he is - well maybe a better understanding anyway.
It's a cool concept for a book series.
The dog :) Nothing against any of charters but I loved the dog.
Dear Tara Sue Me,
Every time you think you gone too far go a few more steps
Pays 2 b good
Sex in public at the Super Bowl
I laughed - no tears though, even during the accident.
Although Nate's perspective was more interesting, he's gets a bit emo sometimes.
Love is a pretty strong word. Abby, Abby, Abby - you wanted the sub lifestyle, so suck it up and take your licks. A couple of scenes were pretty hot; Abby made sure she got her 8 hrs after her first real punishment.
The obvious one 50 shades.
No, but I listened to all 3 of this series and she's pretty good.
It's All Fun and Games Until You Break a Rule.
First book was a little too vanilla for me. A Dom that doesn't loan or share his sub? Well I guess it's possible.
Yes, edgy story line. Great suspence. I couldn't wait to get back to it every time I had to put it down.
The whole Penny dying part, I knew Philip was going to lose and Brian would pay the price.
If I could have I would have.
This should be made into a movie - I can't wait to listen to the next one, The Road to Woodbury. I hope it's just as good.
