Ok, it is a level 3 story BUT if you are an Amtrak lover it is special for you. If you know the Capitol Ltd and the SW Chief it is great. The use of the train sounds, etc was a great idea. Pretty far fetched but surprise ending--no spoilers here.
It was funny--a nice, light read.
I was pleased that things worked out as they did--but maybe too neatly! I liked that it was funny, but some of the plot devices were a bit silly.
The scene in which Tom meets Agnes Joe.
Agnes Joe, what a hoot!
I love everything about this book from the sound effects to the wonderful reader and certainly the story that entertains and keeps you guessing. This is my second year of listening and it is as great an experience as the first.
yes, this book was fun to read.
Tim did a great job!
Tom, he really stepped up to the plate with Elle.
what a fun read. Believe in the Christmas spirit!
Loved the journey.
I felt like I was on the train. I came to know the other passengers.
If one cannot enjoy reading a book over and over again there is no use in reading it at all. Oscar Wilde
I felt this book had a newspaper article feel. It needed less of an interview feel and more of a story feel
Yes I will try another ....every author has a bad book hopefuly I'll find one I like.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
I liked the concept. It made me check rates for overnight train trips. $$$
I really like David Baldacci. It's nice that he wrote a Lighter side Christmas story. Will be a yearly read for me.
This is one of those books that you'll download form your library and listen to at least once per year, especially if you love travel adventures and trains. Not an overly suspenseful story, but one full of characters as they interact in an environment only a train can produce.
Great story.. intellegent listen
All the various personalities of the characters
I laughted out loud at times and groaned empathy at other times
This is a great listen.. The characters were complex and I now want to ride the Amtrak.
The story line had the extra entertainment value in that it was chock full of info about train travel. The Christmas angle really added to the enjoyment of the season. The plot twists kept it full of suspense.
