"A Pterry goodie"
A good book to end the series, darker in nature than the other three but Tiffany has grown up and it shows, shame to see it end as collectively they have all been good, but that I suppose is a matter of opinion.
And the narration by Stephen Briggs brilliant as usual, with the range of character voices he uses you would not think it is the same person.
"Not for me"
I know it only a first chapter, but if it's not going to grab me then I don't think the rest of the book will.
So I won't take a chance on spending money downloading it which in that case I can't give it an accurate score that would reflect it.
"Teller of Tall Tales strikes again"
I found this book really funny, and what is better is it's the author doing the narration of which he excels in.
There are quite a few laugh out loud parts and definately loads of wide smiles places.
Set in toytown which gives it a surreal setting, a soft slouch hat humorous tec novel and a joy to listen to.
"Good Read and Narration"
I liked this book it was livley and fun to listen to, with a good narrator who kept you interested.
It reminded me of the Mike Hammer/Mickey Spillane novels cracking stuff and I look forward to his next one.
While there are some good stories in this book the narration is a dreadful monologue, the only stories I have listened to in full are when the female narrator was speaking, I have skipped more pages in the book than I have listened too I'm on part four half way through and have decided I can't listen to any more.
This has been a total waste of time and money for me, I won't buy another one if this narrator is doing them.
"Songs of the Dying Earth"
While I really enjoyed the stories which were written by some of my favorite Authors, it was largely spoilt by the poor narration and was more of monotone drone than anything else, unfortunatley I have another Jack Vance audio book waiting by the same narrator, it's been put to the back of the pile until I can steel myself to listed to him again.
While the stories rated 4 stars the narrator rated 1star in my opinion.
Excellent book years since I read my hard copy, what foresight he had as a few situations have come to pass, for me he is the Grandfather of Cyberpunk I can't recommend this book highly enough, and the narrator is one of the best I have heard, a real pleasure to listen to.
