A Gathering of Crows | [Brian Keene]

A Gathering of Crows

Brinkley Springs is a quiet little town. Some say the town is dying. They don't know how right they are. Five mysterious figures are about to pay a little visit to Brinkley Springs. They have existed for centuries, emerging from the shadows only to destroy, to kill. To feed. They bring with them terror and carnage, and leave death and blood in their wake. As the night wears on, Brinkley Springs will be quiet no longer. Screams will break the silence. But when the sun rises again, will there be anyone left to hear?

    What did you like best about A Gathering of Crows? What did you like least?

    The gathering of crows is a brutal goring listen. The story is complete horror and thriller! Not Brian's best work but very interesting. Most people have heard the theories of the vanishing settlement with the words Croatoan the only clue left behind. Based on the true story Brian mixes in a fictional brutal version of what happened to the settlement and to the present town being rip to shreds.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The hero


    Did A Gathering of Crows inspire you to do anything?

    Keep listening to Brian Keene

    Story
    "I really don't know how to rate this book"

    Every paperback copy of Brian Keene's work that I have read, I have loved. Every audiobook of his that I've listened to, I've struggled with. The reason seems to be the narrators that are chosen to read them.
    In a previous review on one of Keene's audiobooks, I explained that that particular narrator was horribly inconsistent and made it very hard to listen to. So hard, in fact, that I still haven't managed to listen to the sequel, which is read by the same guy.
    A Gathering of Crows is read by a different man, but again, I don't like him. The voices he uses for some of the women are particularly annoying and whiny, but just overall I really don't like the performance.
    The performances of all of Brian Keene's audiobooks that I've listened to grate on me so much that I can't give a proper review of the work. The work doesn't stick with me, the bad narration does.
    I've given this book four stars for the story simply because I suspect that it's fine beneath all that horrible narration. I will stick to paperback copies of this man's work from now on, I think. And it's such a shame, because I really do like his books.

    Story
    "Ehhh"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    If there were things I could change about this book I would choose two things. The first would be the endless political comments. The second would be how every female character is either a grumpy spinster or a complete moron. I'm not sure if that's what the author intended but if so, he must really not like women.


    What three words best describe Monty Lewis Sauerwein’s performance?

    He has an amazing voice until he does a woman or a childs voice. It turns a little too nasaly and whiney. With that said, I would not object to listening to this man's voice again.


    Did A Gathering of Crows inspire you to do anything?

    Yes, it inspired me to find another book by another author.

    Story
    "Monty Lewis Sauerwein is a robot."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator. The dialog too, I guess.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The premise was great... The characters, not so much.


    What didn’t you like about Monty Lewis Sauerwein’s performance?

    He has a voice for narration but no natural ability -or learned ability to read aloud...he is completely robotic. And, if you can't effect a female voice -don't do one.


    Did A Gathering of Crows inspire you to do anything?

    Nope.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Brian Keene - this wasn't his best, but it was interesting.

    "Exciting joy ride!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to any fan of horror. There isn't a lot of gore, but the story and the narrator really draws you in.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Levine. I have read the two previous books which introduces this character so I already liked him a little. This book gives him a starring role and it really develops his character from being just a quite interesting secondary character.


    What about Monty Lewis Sauerwein’s performance did you like?

    This is the first time I have heard this narrator and to be honest I did not like him to begin with. However after the first few chapters I was really impressed with him. He truly brought each character to life and unlike some other narrators he gave each character a true individual voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was. I really enjoyed this novel, it ticked all the boxes for me.
