Where does Monster Hunter Memoirs: Sinners rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Fairly High. I all ways like Bigger than Life Universes and Dark and twisted Humor

What other book might you compare Monster Hunter Memoirs: Sinners to and why?

I know this will Cause some to Question my sanity and taste but Simon R Green's Nightside Universe. The reasons ...unbelievable characters but human problems

What about Oliver Wyman’s performance did you like?

Tries to bring the Characters to life and does it well

Any additional comments?

I have heard some naysayers about these MHI Memoirs but they are Fun . The characters are unbelievable ,the Humor tends to be twisted , but they are enjoyable

Here on Earth, Danny North is still in high school, yet he holds in his heart and mind all the stolen outselves of 13 centuries of gatemages. The Families still want to kill him if they can’t control him - and they can’t control him; he is far too powerful. On Westil, Wad is now nearly powerless - he lost everything to Danny in their struggle. Even if he can survive the revenge of his enemies, he must still somehow make peace with the Gatemage Daniel North, for when Danny took that power from Loki, he also took responsibility for the Great Gates.

Where does The Gate Thief rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I would put it in top half of list . I found the world that Orson Scott Card created entertaining and well thought out. This is a book that you can pick up or listen to and can be caught up in story and if you have to put it down you can come right back to and be caught up again with out having to go back and see if you forgot something.

What does Stefan Rudnicki and Emily Rankin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

They both are Great vocal actors they bring the characters to life each in there own way

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

Not really the thing I liked about it was the ease that you could stop and start and never lose the feel of the story
