Again one criticism

As with the 1-4 books Bill doesn't seem to grow much as a person, this time he is contrasted with another who doesn't change. This may sway some to the unchanging nature of Bill. I still would have liked to have seen him change and that is why I held bad that final fifth star on story. I still greatly enjoyed these books and read other books by the author. I felt the series had a satisfying pay off with one small exception which I won't spoil and that isn't a criticism more of a please Mr Fetherof one more hit I need one more and you know about who.

enjoyable<br />

I really enjoyed the series from book 1 right through to book 8. I am a little disappointed that I have now finished them as I now have to try and find something that is going to keep me engrossed and wanting to listen at every opportunity. This is not a book for children to listen to due to the strong language but it is also the thing that makes it more realistic and not just someone reading a story to you.

Twilight meets Monty python.

Good if childish storyline spoilt by a narrator who either cannot read or an author who cannot spell. "Height" was pronounced "heighth" on numerous occasions, "vampiric" was pronounced "vamprick" "shone" pronounced "shown" and many other mistakes were made with the narration which made the book very hard to enjoy.
On the positive side, the characters were well created and well defined, and the story was funny and ran at a very fast pace.

great story

Still a great story from the first half of the series. The narrator still hasn't learned out to pronounce "Super Saiyan."

Loved the series, and the world building .

The world building and character development was great. the only part that I saw needed work in was the Narator seemed to catch his breath in between chapters, and change the stone of how Bill was speaking, disrupting the emersiveness.

Great story. So so narration.

Love the snarky protagonist. The narrator seems to capture his character fairly well but... he mispronounces so many words it detracts from the overall story. He's like the new Norm Crosby. Buy the guy a dictionary already.
I'm disappointed the author didn't explore the "Vampire Jesus" backstory a little deeper but maybe he wanted to avoid hurting fundie's feelings.

Wow that was fun

OK so I bought the first book and said I would give it a try it seemed a little far-fetched and silly but then I listen to the full first book yeah it was unbelievably awesome the characters make me laugh he says a lot of stuff that I would find myself saying in similar situations. It’s just overall funny good just amazing book

The best of both worlds.

Rick Gualtieri is a master story teller whose work comes to life when narratted by Christopher John Fetherolf. The dynamic duo of audio books. I am now a devout fan of these two artists. Bill The Vampire is a wonderful series, please keep them coming.
