    I like Seth’s work, the reading is where I get stuck. I’m looking forward to reading it myself.  

    I have gotten other books on podiobooks that the story was good, but the pacing or something about the reader just didn’t

    ‘fit’.  

    so pre-ordered Mr. Harwoods book and look forward to the read.

    i had the same problem with it at first but if you power through it you can move onto Shadow Falls Badlands which is light years beyond the first.  Its not in the audio drama format and the story is a bit more cohesive.  And it helps to have kick ass theme songs

    Beautiful Red is by M. Darusha Wehm. It’s a woman with a  hard to remember name!

    I downloaded Fried Green Zombies by John Allen.  The promo says it’s Shaun of the Dead meets Deliverance.  I think it’s a funny story that’s well worth your time.  Picture hillbilly aliens meet hillbilly earthlings with zombies thrown in.  Nothing stunning or earthshattering, just a well written funny tale.  For something serious, try Republic and the sequel Insurgent by Charles Sheehan-Miles.  It’s a story of West Virginia rebelling against the USA for multiple reasons.  It is serious and some thought provoking issues for those of us paranoid freaks.

    I had the same problem at first. it might be the auidodrama format or it may just be that the story was a little too odd for my taste but i think if you give any of his other stuff a try you might really enjoy it. All of his other works are much easier to get into and read in a more staright forward narrative.

    This book is pretty funny. 18yr old boys always do silly silly things. It helps he makes an outrageous friend right at the beginning of the book. :D Try this if you’re looking for a laugh and nothing too heavy.

    I’ve listened to them. He’s working on the thrid one now. :D

    Profile photo of Megan Pawlak

    and it’s on my list of things to go back to. I prefer finished books since I need (8hrs x 5) to get through each work week. :) Can’t wait for it to be finished!

    Profile photo of Megan Pawlak

    I’m listening to this one now. I’m 9 episodes in and so far it’s pretty good. It gets kind of brainy – dare I say Matrixy – at times though. I find myself sympathizing with the Protagonist a lot. I hope it stays good to the end.

    To be honest, I found the title misleading. It’s called Beautiful Red and I mistakenly thought it would be about a future society on Mars – since it’s known as the red planet. But it’s really just a technological thriller with some very interesting ideas about a society that’s fully plugged in. I avoided it for a long time, but I’m just getting to the part in the book where the title makes sense.

    That’s twice I’ve been utterly wrong recently! I need to stop judging books by their covers and summaries. I’m missing out! 

    UPDATE: I finished the book and this is one of those books you really have to listen to the whole thing before judging. The ending is very important.

    I heard he’s pretty killer in a charcoal suit too. ~_^

    I tried listening to Shadow Falls, and couldn’t get into it. I’m on a round of downloading completed books so maybe I’ll give it another chance.

    I’m not a fan of Seth Hardwood either. I actually got halfway through Jack Wakes Up before I stopped listening, trying to give it the best chance I could since I’d heard a lot about it. But it’s been almost 2 years since then so maybe I’ll try that again too.

    Mark Yoshitmoto Nemcoff is almost always great. Number 1 With a Bullet and Diary of a Madman especially.

    I finished DoubleShare only the day before yesterday, and have started in on SouthCoast. 

    I do like how the "Share" books really explore interpersonal relationships having the Deep Dark as a vehicle rather than the primary purpose for the books.

    I’ll look for them. I use Podiobooks like a gateway drug. I’ll have to visit his website!

    I ADORE Nathan Lowell’s writing. If you like the Share books, the Shaman ones are good too. They are more like a prequel relating very obviously to a character you already know and love from the original trilogy. South Coast is out right now  (it was actually written before Double Share). The next one in that line is called Cape Grace, but it’s not out yet. He’s writing that now.

    Most exciting…..he’s already announced that the next share book is going to be Captain’s share. YAY!!

    I wasn’t thrilled by the opening about the Alaskan experience, I’ll grant you that. I think I wasn’t truely hooked until the 2nd or 3rd episode. It doesn’t get really good until you start realizing that everything is interconnected. If you’re not hooked by the 4th episode, then you’ve given it a good try! :)

    I loved all of them. Really engrossing. It’s easy to care about the characters and the action sequences had me on the edge of my seat. I hated when my tram ride was over and it was time to go to work. 

    I’ve also just finished listening to a 4 book series by Nathan Lowell. QuarterShare, HalfShare, FullShare and Double Share. I am sorry I finished them as I want to hear more of the adventures of Ishmael Wang and the Intergalactic Merchant Mariners.

    but could never really get into.  Were you glued to the book from the first or did it take a while to really get into it????

    I just got finishing listening to 65 Below by Basil Sands. I expected it to be your typical trapped-in-the-middle-of-nowhere thriller….I was dead wrong. It’s actually a really good listen with its share of death and destruction and terror. If you’re looking for something to listen to while you wait for the FDO to get the lead out, try this one.
