I forgot how good this ghostmaker is!

Ghostmaker is a amazing collections of short stories, it was great to revisit them.
I can't remember the voice actors name but he is great, what a fething ledge! with spot on scottish accents bringing the ghosts alive and a massive locker of other accents available to him that I didn't know I wanted or needed! bravo
had a lot of fun listening to this book, gutted that the whole back catalogue isn't here @audible get on it please!

Brilliantly Executed

Having read these books already, the audiobook brought a new perspective to it. Dan Abnett's writing is complimented perfectly by Toby Longworth.

Brilliant series, brilliant narration.

The Gaunts Ghosts novels are action packed and beautifully written anyway. But Toby Longworth’s narration brings them to life. I’m amazed by the sheer amount of accents and voices this man can imitate. Auto purchase this series.

Epic!

Toby Longworth has to be my favourite narrator , accents are spot on and add a real depth to the characters and story. Dan abnett also deserves praise for pulling together a story that although has its roots in 40k , could easily be a stand alone saga .

Toby Longworth is amazing.

Each character get his or her own voice. Their own accent.
Toby doesn't just read the pages in front of him, he acts them out.

fantastic book that requires your full attention

For context, i usually listen to audiobooks while working and driving so when i started this book I realized i needed to pay more attention to the story because its really well told but frequently jumps to different points in time and tells multiple short stories about the members of the ghosts. It was easy to miss some of the transitions to different stories and could be confusing but it was such a good book that i went back for a second listen to pick up the details that i missed.

Ghostmaker, by far the best in Sci-Fy!

Although written years ago before the iPhone or even Amazon existed, Gauntsghosts is just as pertinent to the genre as it was when I first read it in its paperback format. I would recommend Warhammer 40,000 to anyone who loves Sci-aft!

good story, below average performance

I cannot stand the constant, sharp intakes of breath, so I read the book somewhere else. the story is great however.

Tremendous storytelling

Though I am biased to books set in the grimdark 41st millenium, I'd recommend this to anyone.

Toby Longworth does an outstanding job narrating. His accents, voices, and performance bring the characters to life.

Dan Abnett manages to build a band of lovable humans in a universe occupied by infinitely more powerful beings.

Highly recommended.

Meet The Taniths

A fine introduction to all the characters, very good at rounding each one out with his own short story.

Amazing series!

I honestly wasn't the biggest fan of getting audio books before, let alone ones on a series that garnered such high praise for its writing. But with the difficulty of finding good copies of Gaunt's ghosts, I decided to give the audio books a shot. absolutely love them now!
