I'm an avid reader and writer who is brand new to the audiobook scene, and so far... I love it.
I really enjoyed this sequel! So worth a listen! The characters grew and flourished in this book! Start with The Summoner and hold on for the ride!
I like that Tris and his group of friends are slowly growing into their skills as they bond together as a group. The story has a good pace with action as well as story and character development.
The Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson. It follows the same type of storyline. The main character is wronged and leads a group of friends to rise up and crush the ones that are abusing them. Plus, the main character is coming into his powers like Tris.
They are able to bring depth to all of the players in the story that I wouldn't have been able to do had I read the book.
This book is a sequel to THE SUMMONER.
The book itself keeps you intriged for the most part, however, you can skip some entire chapters without missing anything. The book seems to add chapters for clarification, but the author gets side-tracked frequently.
4/5 for a successful sequel but it continues in the same vain as the first book to the point of repetition.
feels like this book was written by a computer processing an algorithm where the parameters are antagonist=person1, love interest=person2, spiritual=person3, academic=person4 blah blah blah you get the picture. Nothing original at any point, was a chore to listen to most times, wish I could get my money back but more importantly my time! avoid!!!!!
"good second book"
loved the first book this one almost as good, great naration really helps character
"Such A Shame :-(("
I have loved these books, ever since they were first published. I really looked forward to listening to these books. It is such a shame that the narrator did such a poor job of telling the stories. I still love the books, but I doubt I'll listen to another book narrated by Peter Ganim.
Jonmarc Vahanion is my favorite character. I love his irreverent attitude to just about everything.
It could have been so much better if it had been narrated by someone else, someone who could read the dialogue with more feeling. It sounded very flat, and sometimes sounded ridiculous.
I know that there is a follow up story, and I also know that unfortunately it is narrated by Peter Ganim, which means it will not be narrated as well as it deserves to be.
I could wish that these books had been narrated by someone else. I still love the books, and will still enjoy reading them, in printed format.
