Excellent book. Not an adult Harry Potter but an adult literary masterpiece. Starts a little slow but definetly picks up. The ending is poetic
A better story line. I expected more from J.K. Rowling.
The horrible language. The story line is so weak. The characters so sad.
The narrator is fine.
All of them
There was no need for such horrible language. The constant swearing was offensive. I am not even going to finish this book it's so bad.
Yes, it was time well-spent. But as I said above I do not like stories that go back and forward in time. I lose the story line.
pleasant, good dictate.
Yes, I would.
My husband and I both tried to read . Neither of us could get past chapter 7.. felt it was a big waste of money and very disappointed in Rowling. I loved Harry Potter books
I made it about 20% into this book and I could not even make myself listen to one more minute. It was just so boring.
I spent 17 hours in search of a non-existent plot.
The only character that might have been worth getting to know died in the first five minutes.
I like hearing the British accents and pronunciations.
There is NO plot to this book. For heaven's sake, don't make it into a movie.
No plot, dull characters. Not worth the time or money.
Well I got into the story line and kept listening to it but around the holidays It was pretty dark and depressing.
But an interesting twist on fiction.
Not really unless they like unhappy plots.
I liked how Barry was such a hero to everyone and it was all centered around his death
No I don't think so. go with another theme
This is a deep, dark, story with little redeeming value. The level of emotional and physical violence is more than my taste can take. Also, the parts about crew were annoying because I don't think Ms. Rowling did her research. Rowing is about leg strength not arms.
I read this because of the author not the story. The story is slow and there is quite little to the plot.
Extremely difficult to hold interest and follow story. Nothing exciting - just small time gossip. Sorry, loved Harrry can do w /Out this one
Romance noves make me happy.
Too British. Just not for me.
Depression.....I like hea.
Personally it was not focused enough with all of the characters taking their turn as main. Took a long time to engage the reader and then left me feeling unsatisfied
It can't compare to Harry Potter nor did I expect it to.
I guess to me the story felt slow.
No. While there could be a "what happened to them next" I didn't feel attached enough to any one.
Not without it's merits--it showed the ways adversity can change a person both for better or worse. I will read J.K again but this just didn't engage me.
