Only Barrow's husband-and-wife sheriff team stand between the survivors and certain destruction. By the time the sun rises, will they pay the ultimate price - or worse?

    "Great but short"

    A great production with some very good sound design but such a shame it was so short.

    "Good but far too short"

    The performances are great but they have tried to cram in a whole story into 1 hour, it sort of works but seems like there is a large middle section missing.

    Not worth a credit

    "Not bad at all!"

    All the bad reviews baffled me. I took a chance on this as I’m a massive fan of the film (not so much the graphic novel) and I thought this was a great audio adaptation! Give it a go!

    "An Audible Sigh . . ."

    It's an ambitious idea to take something bright and visual like a popular graphic novel and transform it into pure audio form. Audible have certainly thrown plenty at it and the cast certainly haven't held back putting pretty much everything they have into it.

    Having listened to it though I can't recommend it. To my ears it was a jerky stream of scenes over-burdened with too many background effects and even though it is only an hour long I sighed inwardly, relieved that I could move on.

    I can imagine that it might be a more interesting experience if you have read and liked the graphic novel first but without that as an audio production it's short, uneven and unsatisfying.

    Of course with Audible's goodreads guarantee you risk nothing more than some lost time and not much of that! So give it a go if like me you feel curious but I can only say that I'd rather have listened to an hour of one of the many good audiobooks I have in my library,

    "A decent audio adaptation of the comic book"

    this is a decent adaptation of 3O Days of Night with a great performance from the cast but this is hit and miss thanks to too many sound effects.

    "Poor scripting = spend credit elsewhere"


    My expectation for this story was quite low, being based on a graphic novel, but am happy to listen to a wide range of audio drama so wanted to give it a go.

    Whilst the overall production is well put together and I can even live with the hammy acting, the BIG weakness is the scripting, there isn’t any depth to it. There’s no development of the characters so they remain one-dimensional and at 64 minutes it is too short to get any connection with them. It may not be the most innovative story, but given to a different script writer it could be a lot better.

    1 credit for this, well I would advise to spend your credit on something else.

    I have read the graphic novel of the same title and I think this presentation is well done. Parallel to the novel. Would highly recommend.

    "Very engaging, great soundscapes"

    I enjoyed the production of this very much. It allows you to hear the world of these vampires, but also use your imagination for a more in depth listening experience. Nice work. And maybe don't listen at night if you get scared easy. :)

    "Left With Mixed Feelings "

    No, this audio adaptation of 30 Days of Night is horrible by any stretch. However, I have some concerns regarding Audible's concerted effort to produce "Ear Movies". The voice actors are superb and the sound effects are beyond stellar. Yet, the narrative in this story is oftentimes dicey. And when you hear every actor explain what he or she is seeing, hearing, and feeling in great detail...well, who, I ask, communicates that way in real life? The tense in which the sporadic narrative is voiced feels awkwardly placed, and at times, completely contrived. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy listening to ear movies when they're done well. I'm just not sure I can recommend this hour long ear movie because the nearly two hour movie is just as well-acted with spectacular sound effects.

    "I Hope This Was Free..."

    Where do I start? Cliché story with no imagination. Too many characters you don't know or care about. An obvious graphic novel recreation that doesn't translate. Ridiculous sound effects when it's already understood, such as: Sound of a helicopter. Character exclaims: It's a helicopter!
    Too short for any reasonable development, but very glad it wasn't any longer.
    Enough screaming to last many audiobooks.

    "Verry Grafic"

    I think the idee behind this book is really awesome, its almost like listening to a movie. Sadly that is also one of the bad points with it. You dont really get any suronding details and some of the sounds of people being ripped apart almost made me feel a little ill.
    The ending pissed me of some, one freshely accidentally made vampire killed basically all of the bad guys, even those that brag about being hundreds of years old, all becouse he remembered the light of the sun and his love of his girlfriend... yeeeeaaaaah NO! >:(
    So, this is an interesting take on audiobook, but in the end I prefer a normal one.

    Story
    "A Messy, Unremarkable Adaptation"

    As much as I had wanted to enjoy this adaptation of 30 Days of Night, this Audible Original adds little value. 30 Days of Night originated as a best-selling comic book series, and was later adapted to film under the direction of David Slade. Either one of those formats is simply a better, and easier, mode of digesting this particular story.

    While this audio production is only an hour long, the story is often muddled by unclear direction and a script that relies too heavily on shorthand methods to communicate the plot, as simple as it is. Given its roots as a comic book, 30 Days of Night has always been a visual production first and foremost. By stripping away Ben Templesmith's art or the live-action performances of the movie's actors and actresses, you unfortunately lose an awful lots of this book's appeal. Going by sound alone, I had trouble distinguishing some of the characters, which only confused matters more. The story skips along, hurtling listeners from one scene to another, but the plot doesn't gel. There's simply not enough story being communicated through dialogue and sound effects alone to make this anywhere near enough of a satisfying listen.

    If you haven't read or viewed 30 Days of Night in its prior mediums, start with either the comic book or the film, and skip this audio edition altogether.

    "I’m Sorry"

    That I listened to this whole book. I understand the idea of trying different things, but to make this like a radio melodrama was not a good idea. First of all it was very hard to follow along in the story.
    Second, it seemed like the actors roll competent, and were good, but the choice to have everything overacted was ridiculous. It was seriously like in melodrama.

    Third, the sound editing was very poor. The narrators voice was set at a good sound level, but when switching to dialogue the sound softer considerably. It was also too much background jumping in chewing and gnashing of flesh. The actors in the background also have the most ridiculous of dialogue.
    I cannot recommend this book to anybody that I know.

    my biggest complaint was the length. I should have paid more attention to that I feel they crammed so much so fast you didn't get the details that made this a good book and movie. otherwise it was Narrated pretty good.
