I didn't read the book. I listened to it with much laughter and enjoyment.
Any time Hadrian and Royce talk. Something funny is said. Every now and then someone else gets a good one in too.
LOVE LOVE LOVE Tim Gerard Reynolds. He does all of these voices and when he changes to a different character you know who is talking then. He's amazing. This is Mr. Reynolds's best work.
I enjoyed the adventure of these books. They had some moments when I thought, "oh no!" but so much of it was so upbeat and enjoyable. The comments that were made would make me laugh out loud many times. I only hope Michael Sullivan can keep up the great work he has started. I, like his wife, love Hadrian and Royce!
A compelling tale of hood vs evil where the bad guys have surprisingly good moral compassesand make quite a few surprising decisions.
Well worth the time. On quite a few occasions I had to force myself to turn it off at bedtime so I could sleep!
Probably not. Too much luck and coincidence for my liking. We learn hardly anything about the two main characters even though there is obviously things in their past why aren't telling us.
It was pretty good. Again too much luck and coincidence for my liking. Things just happen to work out.
The reader was great when he wasn't doing women voices...
Say something about yourself!
Bought this book largely based on the average customer ratings and they didn't disappoint.
Light hearted, fun, feel good and a really good story.
It is just fun. It is a good story. It doesn't try to be deep or philosophical. It doesn't even try to be dark like most modern fantasy books try to be in the vein of Game of Thrones. It just wants to be a fun adventure with a pair of leading characters who get into deep trouble by the virtue of being in the wrong place and time and it succeeds.
I'm not sure what I would compare it to. That's hard for me to say. It stands on its own and I think that's a good thing.
I like how his characters can sound a bit similar, but are diverse enough to be distinct. He also had a good delivery for describing actions.
Yes. If I had the time, I would spend all day listening.
If you want a fantasy book to listen to and enjoy, I recommend this.
It's a fantastic story, with twists and turns, entertaining characters, and a great performance by the reader. It's been quite a while since I had a book I couldn't wait to get back to. You can't go wrong with this one.
What a nice read, it has been a whole since I heard such an expected plot line. excellent book.
