this is a great series, but you have to have a dark sense of humor. the narrator is excellent he really gives stark his voice.
i am only halfway through and i am loving it!!! jack reacher as a real guy!!! i like the idea of the jack reacher character but his books are too comical. this has elements of realism that reacher is missing. secret government agencies, billionaires who only care about making the next million no matter who dies in the process, religious terrorist groups hellbent on world destruction!!! all that and then throw in ZOMBIES!!!!! yes please can i have another!
i am enjoying this series but this book wasnt the best. nothing really to point out without a spoiler alert. i am just not thrilled with how this story is unfolding. i am going to take a break from this series for a few months with a new dresden book coming out and then an iron druid book after that. then i will revisit the world of sandman slim! the narrator as always was spot on he really brings the characters to live or death!!! i will be back but i went through the first 3 books within weeks and i just need a break from this world!
i found this series through the tv show the finder. which by the way was a great show its currently on netflix. its a shame they just had 1 season. the book is hard to follow at times especially if you cannot devote your full attention to it, it jumps from character perspectives from chapter to chapter and the chapters can be extremely short. i drive while i listen and sometimes i would be distracted and miss the switch. it lead to many rewinds. other than that i found it slow to get into but once i was hooked i was caught!!! i was riveted to this tale. i thoroughly recommend it.and with audible you can feel secure knowing you can return it if its not your cup of tea! the narrator did an awesome job as well!
A very moving story. You can hear the pain in his voice. its so sad that people are still living in the dark ages and mistreat others if we don't believe the same thing as them.
the narrator makes some interesting choices he makes the lead character
sound like Nicholas cage and not in a good way. the story should have been set in california not new jersey. the story is really lighthearted at times but it takes you to some really dark places. at times you feel like your reading a stephen king book at disneyworld! but after saying all that i enjoyed it except the cartoony nic cage voice.
I really enjoyed this book. If you are a fan of Jim Butchers work but wished Dresden wasnt such a goodie two shoes all the time. than this is the book for you. sandman slim is a bada$$ and he dont take crap from anyone. i loved it.
Love these books. The Harry Bosch books are good but these are great!!! I was introduced to Connelly by the Lincoln Lawyer movie and I am hooked. Great writer and characters.
this was an awesome course really walks you through all the steps, that the theory of evolution had to take to get to where it is now, as close to scientific fact as gravity is!! this isn't a polished book though and some audible listeners may get aggravated over the many times that the lecturer has missteps. but it doesn't take away from the experience at all.
i listen to more guy friendly books, more of a John Grisham, Micheal Connoly, Jim Butcher, kinda guy. and it took me a little bit for this book to get me hooked but when it did it set the hooks in deep. if like me you like a little more action upfront. give it some more time it is worth the payout.i loved it and i hated when it ended. also i don't give many reviews but i think this GEM is marvelous.
