when wanda kisses jarred and mell punches jarred
they did make a film. enuff said!
very descriptive great listen awsome spin
The first couple of chapters were a bit confusing and a little slow (but that's the same with the actual book). However, once it gets rolling it keeps you enthralled! Great narration and amazing story. One of my favorites!
The narrator was very good and the story line was pretty good. It did seem to drag on. A long listen that I caught myself several times thinking just get to the point. I am happy I listened to it but not the best I have listened to.
Rumor has it that I have been working on the internet since 1988.
Is annoying a Genre?
The performance was good.
There are some good aspects to the premise but it was just annoying.
I wish I could return it.
Alien Invader Regret
The Day the Earth Stood Still. Alien and human interactions.
First time listener of Kate Reading and I thought her performance added to the enjoyment of the book. Her interpredation of Wanda "Wanderer" was spot on to what and how an alien soul would speak. Less emotion, more factual, a Mr Spock of sorts. If she did all the voices in this book, which I'm not sure, she deserves 6 stars. Incredible.
No . . . . . .because in reality the middle tended to drag a little but the ending was very satisfying. I teared up a little while driving down the road and for a manly man that's just not acceptable. It may have been the wind in my face.
Give it a try. Very interesting storyline and very well done. And it may explain some of the other voices in my head at the same time. LOL
Absolutely! I found this to be one of the best books I've listened to thus far.
Getting through the beginning of the story was a little rough, I found myself drifting off in my mind, but soon I found myself becoming more and more attached to the story and the characters and at the end of the 25+ hours of audio, I could have had more.
No. I might read it again but I cannot bear the author's voice.
Her voice at times was almost normal but at other times would have to be compared to the computer voice we hear when having a kindle on text to speech. At times it also reminded me of a series on Star Trek': TNG 1st season called 0101010101 or something like that. It had a species that stole the Enterprise who talked in a robotic voice and sounded like Kate sometimes in this book. This is especially true when reading quotes in the book, especially quotes from Wanderer. Since her voice was most robotic, and annoying, when reading quotes, I was wondering if Kate somehow was trying to relay a message. One I was not smart enough to realize. I love Immersion reading but after 2 hours I had to abandon the audiobook and continue with just reading the rest on my kindle.
I started the book a little unsure. I didn't like the main character at first- or rather her role as an alien taking over a human, but I think this is intended. She becomes very likable.
I became very engrossed in the story. There are interesting moral dilemmas that come up and it's not always clear who the "bad guys" are. I'm longing for a 2nd book!
Can't stop listening
The whole story
Kate reading brings the characters to life
Don't pass this up, a great story that will keep you up to the end.
