I thought this might be a riveting novel based upon early hype. It's not. I fell asleep so much I couldn't follow the thread. You HAVE to want to listen to this book.
He didn't have anything to work with and didn't do anything to help it.
That isn't the point. The book is a flop about Vietnam and the veterans who served and fought there.
Pick another book.
I barely touched the surface. I can't listen to this and follow it...between the stupid accent that I don't need to listen to, and the difficult story line, this is a hard "read" to listen to. I'll have to get the book on my Kindle to enjoy this because I just can take it.
I just love the early Sue Grafton's and this narrator. Judy Kaye is Kinsey and I hear her voice as I read the newer books.
Just like the movies, especially now...you can't beat the real thing. I tried to listen, I really did...but anything pulled me away from listening, I even cleaned the oven and listened to music instead of this.....
Anything...it was just really hard to listen to it....couldn't even picture things after seeing the movie.
Typical Stuart Woods/Stone Barrington novel that doesn't disappoint in entertainment department. But to some degree I do tire of him landing on all four paws inheriting and getting million dollar checks and such.
Not on audio if it's the same guy.
Anyone but Tony Roberts. Everyone but Dino sounded like a British aristocrat slumming in NYC and the CIA. Dino sounded like a pirate parrot from a Patrick O'Brien novel. That right there grated on me through the entire listen.
That is a Yin/Yang kind of question. Thank the Audible Gods it was only 7 hours and change.
Tell Tony Roberts to can the pirate parrot voice.
Yes. It is a wonderful book to listen to. Pat Conroy knows how to tell a story and makes you, literally tells you, to buy an airline ticket to the low country.
The flow of the story as Pat Conroy does with all of his work. I wait in anticipation for his next book.
He just tells the story and doesn't do gimmicky crap to force us to know he is changing characters. Too bad he has passed away.
I think that's been done.
Just listen and enjoy.
I think it was spot on in many respects especially if you live with a depressed person.
It is accurate and brings in facets of the "educated" from rich to unrich in their personal and imperfect lives.
I thought he did a great job.
I wouldn't rename it.
If you live with a depressed person, be prepared to explore your own marriage.
I'm not sure...
Not Ann Patchett...probably Sue Grafton
She had nothing to work with.
Regret for buying it
Don't buy it. It is absurd. It is unbelievable. Why would a drug company, a doctor, a
