A well written and complex book that is worth the effort to engage in it. Excellent narration and fantastic characters. Looking forward to the other books

Great story well told, if slightly biased towards the end. He is an amazing and terrifying man.

Wow.

What a great book. Building on from the previous books, with call backs and returning characters ending in an amazing crescendo. Can't wait for the next one!

Good but last 1/3 of book feels rushed

Loved ready player one and so I bought this book. I liked the majority of the book. Good humour, story and cultural references. But I can't help feeling that the The last 1/3 of the book was written under the looming deadline. The story final story brushed over and told in a rapid, slapdash manor which is a real shame.

Neil Gaiman narrates this wonderful fantasy book. His performance is fantastic. He could read a shopping list and it would sound amazing. I loved the story and it stuck with for several months after I listened to the book. Highly recommend.

Simon Pegg has written a smart autobiography which combines elements of his life and also a fantastical story involving "The Peggster". He narrates his story very well and there are many laugh out loud moments. Great book.

This is a great story, told through many different narrators, playing characters who tell us their individual story which feeds the overall narrative. Very cleverly done and well written. Nothing like the movie (which is also excellent)

Life Part 1 cover art

Amazing Lucid Story, surprisingly well written.

Loved this book despite it`s huge length. There are 3 narrators for this book and all are great. Keith certainly plays on his perceived character but he has a great memory and many wonderful stories. Highly recommend.

I`ve enjoyed getting into Harry Dresdens world. The story is well written and excellently narrated. James Marsters performance really encapsulates Harrys wizard world weariness. I`d recommend this book and I`m looking forward to reading the next in the series.
