Publisher's Summary

Jacob Marlowe has lost the will to live. For two centuries he has wandered the world, enslaved by his lunatic appetites and tormented by the memory of his first and most monstrous crime. Now, the last of his kind, he knows he can't go on. But as Jake counts down to suicide, a violent murder and an extraordinary meeting plunge him straight back into the desperate pursuit of life.

Couldn't put this down

Would you listen to The Last Werewolf again? Why?

I am not in the habit of listening to any book twice but might make an exception to this one. Full of surprises, not my normal type of book but so happy I took the chance on this one

Who was your favorite character and why?

The lead character, so
Well narrated and written I almost believed he actually existed

Which scene did you most enjoy?

This book although not a comedy as per say made me laugh out loud on several occasions throughout the entire book. Great stuff. Also a bit naughty!!!

Any additional comments?

The narrator was excellent. I'm a crime and thriller reader and not to keen on fantasy books that are to OTT. However I took a chance with this book and I am so pleased I did one of my favourite listens. There are no negatives and I have been recommending it to all my friends. Just buy it and enjoy. !!!!!!

best book so far

Would you listen to The Last Werewolf again? Why?

Defiantly. Loved it the narrator's voice gave me chills. I have read this book and listened to it from the library but enjoyed it so much, I wanted to own it and liststen to it again and again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Jacob Marlowe. Loved his use of language.

Have you listened to any of Robin Sachs’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No. But I will be.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Lots of them. Near the end and the end.

Any additional comments?

Already own book two in paper back and book three is on pre order.

Absolutely Exceptional

Engaging, gripping and read with extreme eloquence and refinement, this was an utterly compelling tale that left me as hungry as a wolf for more.

How can you ruin a book this great?

I have read this wonderful book several times and decided to buy the audio book for my partially sighted father, knowing that he would love it. However he thought it was awful. I was so shocked that I had to listen for myself. The reading is so monochromatic that he utterly fails to paint the brilliance of the characters and yet it's so infuriatingly dull that I can't even fall asleep I am so irritated by it. Please do not waste your time on the audio version and just read the book or get someone else to read it for you!

Brilliant

What did you like most about The Last Werewolf?

The strength of the story. I like the inner life of the main character. Such strong feelings and uncompromising story, well written

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Last Werewolf?

The point in the story where they visit the television producers house and at the end when Jake gets the good news.

What does Robin Sachs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Never heard him read before but I will look him up on the Audible system

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

When wanting the end became the beginning.

Any additional comments?

Very strong story well written - I have not heard of this author before but I will be looking for anything else he has produced.

Boring

I like a well written book and I love rich descriptive prose and there is plenty of the latter in this book. In fact, I'd go so far as to say there is far, far too much. Instead of anything happening, there are pages and pages of deep and impenetrable burbling.Well written and well read burbling but the lack of anything interesting eventually proved too much for me and I gave up.

Dissapointing

loved "I Lucifer" and was looking forward to reading more of Duncan's work,this however was a let down.While it had an interesting premise,I think there's only so many ways an author can describe genitalia,and if you take them all out of this book,it would only leave it at about 20 pages of actual plot.

Been there, done that

He's the last werewolf, how did he become one? Where did all the others go?
