Would you consider the audio edition of The Grey Horse to be better than the print version?

Not necessarily better. But it helped understand how the old Gaelic was pronounced

Who was your favorite character and why?

Definitely Ruairi. A very likeable rogue. Full of mischief

Which character – as performed by Steve Coulter – was your favourite?

The horse

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

Two moments. The end of the race. And after the capture of the little black king

Any additional comments?

You have to feel sorry for ruairi when they go to geld the grey horse

Plot within plot.

Would you listen to Daughter of the Empire again? Why?

Yes. It is one of my favorite fantasy books.

How could the performance have been better?

The reader sounded like she had never seen the book before, and wasn't interested in it

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

It took 2 work days (I drive motorways all day)

Any additional comments?

Can we have the next books in the series please. But with a different reader if possible

Where does Going Home rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I really enjoyed this. (and the next 2 in the series) I get through about 4 audiobooks a month. I would place this in the top 10.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Difficult to decide between Morgan and Thad. Both do what has to be done. but neither like doing it.

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

Other than the next books in this series, No. But I will look for out for some. I liked his reading style. It sounded like he was enjoying the book too

This was my introduction to Matthew Reilly. I really enjoyed it. Slightly unusual plot. Action packed with blood, guns, whales, armys and plenty of battles. Also the odd bit humour. ( I'm the hero of this book. I can't die) I have since listened to the next two in the series (Area 7 and Scarecrow)
Sean Mangan is an exellent reader. The book just comes alive. And leaves you breathless.
I am now a Matthew Reilly fan
