Original story is better than book version.

    I know I am WAY late to the party but just finished Nocturnal through Librivox. Any recommendations on what to listen to now!!

    Make it a Premium channel series! HBO, Starz, Cinemax. It would be kickass! Television would give it a chance to develop the characters. Instead of trying to jam it into a 2 hour Hollywood toy commercial. Look out Rick! Brian is our new favorite monster killer!

    Long time fan and finally had to sign up and officially become a junkie. I am finally listening to the new and “improved” Nocturnal. I dig it and as a novel it is better. I kind of dug the almost comic book vibe of the original and it would make an awesome graphic novel but feel the rewrite makes a more cohesive story. Take into account I am currently only on episode 15 and have only two complaints. Ninja is cooler than terminator and the perfect audio version would be narration and all of the other voices as they are but Scott will always be Pookie to me.

    @AdrianaCo: Andy Rooney wasn’t even a fan of Andy Rooney. That’s a good link, though.

    Yeah! I completely agree that book version is way much better. The conventional book was a technological marvel upon its debut. The eBook has proven to be much the same. But do not throw out paper in support of flash ROM just yet. There are still reasons why books are superior to eBooks. Read more here..

    @Eoddog69: All I can say is the gangster sub-plot will be back in the sequel, if I ever write it. Ain’t letting that sucker go to waste.

    oooo, as i’ve said to the fdo more than once, there was a certain raw energy to the first book which as far as the story goes i believe is the current jewel in the crown that i thought was missing in the rewrite, yet upon the second reading of the new there is a lot more depth, the first version will always have a place in my heart but a second read of the book reveals more

    Let me start off by saying I love everything our FDO puts out but I do have to say that the original audio version of Nocturnal was WAY BETTER! I miss the whole gangster wars back story.
