John the Tripper, the funniest character I've come across in a long time. The more I listen to these books, the better they get. I highly recommend these books. For the sheer entertainment value.

I am loving the Zombie Fallout books. This sidebar book was amusing, and completely unbelievable. Once I suspended my beliefs and just went with it, it was entertaining. Onto book 4. Book 3 had me sobbing with hysterical laughter.

I had no expectations with this book. Comments said funny. The problem with that is, what most people think is funny, doesn't make me laugh. This book was downright hilarious. I had to pause a few times until I calmed down. I will definitely carry on with the series

This book takes away any and all glorification of war. It's brutal, disturbing and emotionally charged. This isn't the type of book I normally listen to but I wanted to listen to some of the classics. Narration is extremely slow so I sped it up and it moved along at a good pace. If you want reality then listen to this. I highly recommend it.

The...narration...was...so...slow...it...was...difficult...to...grab my attention. This was the first book I listened to at 1.25X speed. It had good moments and it did capture me enough to continue. I felt the author spent too much time describing inconsequential details and skimming over pertinent information...like the how. If he didn't know how to explain details he'd just avoid them all together and skip to the next chapter. This book could have been excellent, yet it was mediocre

A lighter version of Morse

I really enjoyed this book. It was easy to listen to and very engaging. Not so dark, like Morse but entertaining. I enjoyed the narrator at 1.2 speed. A very slow reader. Once I sped up the playback all was good. I will be getting the next in the series

I really enjoyed the way this book was played out. The short stories of each individual melded into a whole. I found it fascinating and disturbing. Makes one not want to visit Chicago.

Overall it was good.

My therapist recommended this book and it gave me some eureka moments. Overall it explained many different personalities and traits of abusers. It was heavy on term and acronym clarification. It was very skinny on how to get your life back on track and suggested therapy. Well, that's why I'm in therapy.

Yay!

It brings to mind the expansive world of Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings. It make me wish JK Rowling would create more books for the wizarding world. Great book!

The story was good, narrator awesome (as usual) I enjoyed this book...here's the catch...sort of. There were a couple of things that annoyed me about it. 1. He said sardonically, he thought sardonically, he said with a sardonic smile. I am 52 years old and I'm pretty sure that if you added up all the "sardonics" from the thousands of books I've read (listened to), it would not equal how many times this word was used in this book. 2. Women are portrayed as being teary eyed, overly emotional and dramatic . Being a woman I kept rolling my eyes and muttering sardonically "Oh Puhleeeze" Storyline excellent and if you can get past all the sardonics and twitty twits, it's a light listen.
