Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
From the very first of the book through ot the end, the book is filled with humor, teenage romance, dreams fullfilled and humor.
A suspenseful book set in the Black Hills...predictable but the setting of a wild life refuge makes it interesting and even a little educational. Worth the read even though it is a little long. I'd recommend the abridged version.
I really loved this book and the reader Nick Podehl is a genius. I don't understnad some of the reviews here. The story was great and the characters, male and female were brought to life by the reader. Thank you and well done.
I am a great fan of audio books. Audible is definitely one of my best friends. So many books, so little time!
This is an intense story. There is a little gratuitous violence, and the conflict between the love interest was a little unbelievable, but this is fiction. It was a "page-turner" to be sure. It is reminiscent of Northern lights in its feel. So I have to say that it was well worth the listen for me, despite some of the unnecessary trappings.
And unlike some, I liked the narrator--not the best rhythm, but I do like the quality of his voice. I think that the smooth quality of his voice was necessary to balance out the intensity of the storyline. I liked enough to listen to it again at some point.
This book was entirely too long. It's the first time that I've wished that I'd purchased the abridged version. I also had to stop and figure out who was speaking although I have to say that I am glad that Nick didn't use falsetto when speaking women's voices like a lot of men narrators.
I would give the story 4 stars, but the narrator gets zero! I couldn't tell who was speaking and had to do several rewinds. The characters voices were all very flat. I really liked the story, and the length was great for me since I listened commute a long distance every day. There is one element in the end that I thought was a little cheesy, but overall I really enjoyed the story.
I love Audible and listen to a lot of books. I can even get through some of the very long, very drawn out historical romances... but I thought this book would NEVER end! I wish I had listened to an abridged edition, or not a all. It went over and over the same issues again and again. By the time the story was worked out I didn't care anymore.
The only thing I did not care for in this book was the amount of curse words. The story would be a better story without all the foul language and then it would be more appropriate to listen to when there are children present.
