Great Narrator Weak Story

What disappointed you about Hissers?

I didn't care for the falling action and resolution of the story. It left me questioning what the author wanted me to take away from the story. Was this a teenage angst novel or a horror story or a comedy or zombie apocalypse? Pick one and stick with it.

There were several plot holes that I couldn't get over. Early in the story the main character's leg is injured pretty badly and in the rest of the story he is running around with no impediment. At one point a police officer basically just abandons a group of minors, with a really weak explanation.

The author gives us a lot of information about some of the characters, which in the end was apparently for little or no reason.

The chapters were broken up in a way that felt like we were going to change points of view or change between story lines but then the main story line would just continue.

Would you ever listen to anything by Ryan C. Thomas again?

No.

What about Macleod Andrews’s performance did you like?

He did a great job sticking with his voice imitations of each character and making the dialog sound legitimate.

What character would you cut from Hissers?

In this case, it's more about what characters would you keep. Or what background information was irrelevant for characters.

This is a SciFi book

Would you try another book from Ryan C. Thomas and/or Macleod Andrews?

I didn't realize it was and therefore it does not entertain me. However, the reader was very good. The content was very grafic.

Would you recommend Hissers to your friends? Why or why not?

If you like SciFI and to be scared, go for it.

What didn’t you like about Macleod Andrews’s performance?

Andrews was great.

Was Hissers worth the listening time?

Not for me, but it was personal taste
