I didn't know what the purpose of these characters were for. After 8 hours into the book I still didn't know what they were heading towards except to survive, which doesn't make for an exciting book. I gave up when it got to the part about the hooker. I don't like sex in books.
I didn't have a strong connection to any of them.
This book was definitely not for me. I tried to like it, but just couldn’t get into it. I think this is one of those books that readers either love or hate, and for me it was the latter. Hate that I wasted my credit for this one!
I'm not a fan of Robert McCammon's other works but this was actually one of the best audio books I've heard in a long time. The author does a great job of setting each scene and all of the characters are well developed and interesting. There is a lot of symbolism in this story and it would be equally as entertaining for a 15 year old as it would be for a 45 year old. Totally worth the credit, I would love to see more audio books by this voice actor.
a must read
I will recommend this book to everyone. It was entertaining from the beginning to the end.
Absolutely! I plan to listen to it again immediately! It is rather long, but it keeps your interest. So many times I wanted to go to the end of the story just to find out what was going to happen. But as hard as it was I did not. It is a complete story, not the kind that leaves you wondering "so what happen to the people?" The writer Robert McCammon did a wonderful job. Cheers to him on this fine story.
I enjoyed the whole book.
Sister - the story was about Swan and she is a lovely character, But Sister and Josh are the story.
Can wait to see what else this writer has written - hope they are all as great as this story.
Definitely, it was very intriguing
The characters were very interesting
I think his voice was very rich when it was Josh, I could almost imagine what he'd looked like
How the town got together after being so fearful & almost untrusting
Swan Song did not disappoint me at all
I loved the story, from start to finish. I would call it a improved version of Stephen King's the Stand. It is an older book and is a little dated with its cold war implications.
Not a must read, but I still would recommend it.
I'm a long haul truck driver. For me there's no better way to knock down the miles than with a good audiobook.
Ive read this book 4 times since it was 1st published. being a truck driver and I drive 3 or 4 thousands miles a week, it just kept me smiling all day.
I believe besides Swan herself, the wrestler will be my pick. Then again the woman with the talisman would be a good pick too.
not Scott Brick or the like.
her(Swan) meeting the boy, I dont know, Ive read this book several times, the whole book moves Me.
I would recommend this to everyone.
All really good, but Sister is a mean SOB!
Josh the strong
The writing is decent, but there is a heavy religious theme that just got on my nerves for some reason. Other readers may enjoy this.
He's a good narrator. It was the story that was the problem for me.
The story is not bad, but I found the heavy religious theme bothersome. If you don't mind that or are looking for that kind of story then this would probably be very engaging.
