Would you listen to Antarktos Rising again? Why?

Not really, but only because it isn't that kind of book, but man it was still good the first time!

What other book might you compare Antarktos Rising to and why?

Some of the Lincoln Child books have a similar style.

Have you listened to any of R.C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No this was my first one, but won't be the last.

Who was the most memorable character of Antarktos Rising and why?

Mirander.

Would you try another book from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child and/or Rene Auberjonois?

Yeah for sure as the Pendergast series is a great one and Rene does the perfect voice for him

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

To be honest I didn't like it but thats because I saw it coming from about half way.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Rene was really good again, but a couple of times he kept the wrong voice for a character.

Was Two Graves worth the listening time?

Yes as it was a further trip into the world of A.L.Pengdergast, but I think its one of the weakest in the series.

One of the best Dresden Files books in the series. Liked how it brings back so many characters from previous books and intertwines them in ways I didn't see coming.

Hell's Bells man!

Would you consider the audio edition of Island 731 to be better than the print version?

Haven't read the print version.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Island 731?

The premise was quite good, esp once they get to the island.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Good overall but there were times where the narrater gets stuck on a character voice and continues this into another character so made it hard to follow some dialogue.

What made the experience of listening to The Twelve the most enjoyable?

Scott Brick brings life to each of the characters so you can just lose yourself in them and the story.

What did you like best about this story?

A great follow on from the 1st book.

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He's Mr Audiobook. No other narrarter seems to bring the depth of narration to books that he does.

What did you love best about The Passage?

All of it!! Mainly though the believability of all the characters and the story that follows each of them. You really feel invested in each of them.

What other book might you compare The Passage to and why?

Probably "The Stand" but only because thats another end of the world epic.

What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

Its Scott Brick. Nothing more to say!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The first chapter really got to me. I won't spoil it but as a grown man it was the closet I've come to crying at the first part of any book.

Any additional comments?

Hands down one of the best books I have ever read.

If you could sum up Conquest in three words, what would they be?

Brilliant, conclusive, funny!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Conquest?

Just Michael Talbot as a whole and especially his interactions with D!

Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?

Still love Michael Talbot the best as got to know the character as voiced by Sean in Zombie Fallout. That and D was great!

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

Yeah couldn't get through it quick enough.

Any additional comments?

I picked up the Indian Hill books after listening to Zombie Fallout which I loved! Have to say though, Indian Hill could actually be better than ZF!
