    "A wild ride with Simon R. Green"

    Excellent book and a wild ride! I have listened to all of the author's Nightside books as well as his Secret Histories. I was expecting the same writing style in Shadows Fall and a continuation of the descriptions of Shadows Fall as described in the Nightside books. For the first two chapters I did not think much of the book or the reader because I was expecting a Nightside connection that was not there. By the third chapter the book and the reader became excellent. I was totally drawn in and couldn't stop listening. I listen in my car and found myself inventing places to go just so I could listen to the book. The readers range of voices and characters is amazing and it is easy to tell the characters apart by the voices. He does male voices, female voices and accents.

    All of Simon R. Greens books have some horror and violence tempered with tongue in cheek humor to soften it. Not so in this book. This book is more Simon R. Green meets Stephen King. The book does contain Greens's usual whimsical characters but once it gets going the horror and violence are unrelenting and graphic. If nothing in the Nightside series has disturbed you then you will be fine with this book. Highly recommended for the Simon R. Green fan. Also recommended if you have never listened to Green as the book stands on it's own.

    Minor Spoiler Ahead!

    If you are a Christian who offends easily do not buy this book, I'm sure an offended Christian listener will post a review going into more detail but I will not.

    "Great book, is it going to be a series?"
    What made the experience of listening to Shadows Fall the most enjoyable?

    I liked hearing about this other place that has been referred to in other Simon Greene stories. It was a fast pace and fun story. I am kinda hoping that this is going to be another series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters were very interesting. I liked how the author developed them.


    What about Kevin Stillwell’s performance did you like?

    The narrator added alot to this book. Each character was distance and had its owned personality.


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

    I liked this book and I wanted to keep listening to it. I found myself taking a longer walk or lunch or the long way home to keep listening.

    "Just as wonderful to listen to as it was to read"

    Shadows Fall is one of my favorite Simon R. Green books.

    I have read it about 5 times since I first brought it many years ago.

    I find myself buying new copies as I keep loaning out my current copy.

    What a pleasure that the audible version is just as good as the written work.

    The narration is wonderful. All the characters are clearly delineated. And the pacing is wonderful.

    I have a new way to enjoy this thoughtful, fanciful, evocative work.

    "A Big Disappointment"
    Would you try another book from Simon R. Green and/or Kevin Stillwell?

    I Jonesed for every new Nightside book and I liked the Secret Histories, making this book such a let down. I couldn't finish it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Simon R. Green again?

    I suggest Green fans try the Ghost Finders series after the two mentioned above. I don't recommend this book.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin Stillwell’s performances?

    As for the narrator, his performance did not enhance the plot. Bad chemistry? I don't know.
