"My legal name where I currently reside in the city of Liege, Belgium, is Gaspar Valessi. But that is not my real name. The name I was given some 30,000 years ago, when I was born in a Paleolithic settlement in the region that is now called Germany - the name my father gave me shortly after I was voided, bloody and howling, from my mother's womb - is Gon."
So begins the saga of the immortal Gon, a 30,000 year-old vampire. This, the first volume of his memoirs, recounts his mortal life in prehistoric Germany alongside his male companion, Brulde, and his two wives, the Neanderthal Eyya and his Cro-Magnon mate, Nyala. It details the fearsome events that lead to his transformation from man to undying monster.
This revised and expanded edition includes new material, adding depth to much-loved characters and more fully realizing the author's vision of the oldest living vampire and the prehistoric world that gave birth to him. By turns beautiful and subversive, poetic and seductive, The Oldest Living Vampire Saga is like no other vampire series you've ever heard!

I did like several parts of the story
- AudioBook Reviewer "All of my reviews are on my blog audiobookreviewer dot com"
I am the narrator and I just wanted to give some clarification as it seems some audio book listeners don't realise a few things.
Though we narrate the book we are usually given direction by the author since it is actually their book.
We can give some push back, of course, as this will be OUR performance, but it is a collaborative effort.
This is only my second full audio book and my director (author) wanted no character voices or accents. He wanted it told almost as a monologue since it is the main protagonist telling the entire story.
Finally, Gon is 30,000-years-old so he has seen and done it all. He may sound as though he does not have much energy but that is because he is the most laid-back person there can be. He has no need to shout and rage. He is is just telling his story. One that is almost inconceivable in length and scope.
I really appreciate ALL reviews. I just wanted to add this in case people don't realise what goes on "behind the scenes". :)
