Well done.

I have read the graphic novel of the same title and I think this presentation is well done. Parallel to the novel. Would highly recommend.

Very engaging, great soundscapes

I enjoyed the production of this very much. It allows you to hear the world of these vampires, but also use your imagination for a more in depth listening experience. Nice work. And maybe don't listen at night if you get scared easy. :)

Left With Mixed Feelings

No, this audio adaptation of 30 Days of Night is horrible by any stretch. However, I have some concerns regarding Audible's concerted effort to produce "Ear Movies". The voice actors are superb and the sound effects are beyond stellar. Yet, the narrative in this story is oftentimes dicey. And when you hear every actor explain what he or she is seeing, hearing, and feeling in great detail...well, who, I ask, communicates that way in real life? The tense in which the sporadic narrative is voiced feels awkwardly placed, and at times, completely contrived. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy listening to ear movies when they're done well. I'm just not sure I can recommend this hour long ear movie because the nearly two hour movie is just as well-acted with spectacular sound effects.

Weird

Hard to keep track of what’s going on. At least it was cheap. I would suggest a pass on this one.

I Hope This Was Free...

Where do I start? Cliché story with no imagination. Too many characters you don't know or care about. An obvious graphic novel recreation that doesn't translate. Ridiculous sound effects when it's already understood, such as: Sound of a helicopter. Character exclaims: It's a helicopter!
Too short for any reasonable development, but very glad it wasn't any longer.
Enough screaming to last many audiobooks.

Definitly not the movie !

Maybe i was in a bad mood, Maybe i was tired, Maybe i was expecting RC Bray...Just could not get into it. Thank god it was only an hour long and $4.95
Sounds like your listening to a play with your eyes closed. Guess i was expecting a lot more but there really wasnt much info on it before it came out

Graphic Novels Don't Transfer well...

I'm beginning to really dislike FULL PRODUCTIONS, they're like watching TV with no picture. Too much SFX and not enough description.

Great but short

A great production with some very good sound design but such a shame it was so short.

Not bad at all!

All the bad reviews baffled me. I took a chance on this as I’m a massive fan of the film (not so much the graphic novel) and I thought this was a great audio adaptation! Give it a go!

Good but far too short

The performances are great but they have tried to cram in a whole story into 1 hour, it sort of works but seems like there is a large middle section missing.

Not worth a credit

An Audible Sigh . . .

It's an ambitious idea to take something bright and visual like a popular graphic novel and transform it into pure audio form. Audible have certainly thrown plenty at it and the cast certainly haven't held back putting pretty much everything they have into it.

Having listened to it though I can't recommend it. To my ears it was a jerky stream of scenes over-burdened with too many background effects and even though it is only an hour long I sighed inwardly, relieved that I could move on.

I can imagine that it might be a more interesting experience if you have read and liked the graphic novel first but without that as an audio production it's short, uneven and unsatisfying.

Of course with Audible's goodreads guarantee you risk nothing more than some lost time and not much of that! So give it a go if like me you feel curious but I can only say that I'd rather have listened to an hour of one of the many good audiobooks I have in my library,

Poor scripting = spend credit elsewhere


My expectation for this story was quite low, being based on a graphic novel, but am happy to listen to a wide range of audio drama so wanted to give it a go.

Whilst the overall production is well put together and I can even live with the hammy acting, the BIG weakness is the scripting, there isn’t any depth to it. There’s no development of the characters so they remain one-dimensional and at 64 minutes it is too short to get any connection with them. It may not be the most innovative story, but given to a different script writer it could be a lot better.

1 credit for this, well I would advise to spend your credit on something else.

A decent audio adaptation of the comic book

this is a decent adaptation of 3O Days of Night with a great performance from the cast but this is hit and miss thanks to too many sound effects.
