I really liked this book AND the narrating. Two thumbs up! I was apprehensive at first, but won't hesitate with the bizarre subjects moving forward. :-) I would totally recommend this book :-)
This isn't a typical Stephen King book. It's good... but in a "gets you thinkin'" kind of a way :-) Nothing supernatural about it.
The narrator was good... but I did NOT enjoy her. She sounded like she smoked way too many cigarette's. Just not the voice I would put together with the character., Also... the way everything wrapped up at the end seemed very unrealistic to me. I was very disappointed. I don't think I'll read anymore from her.
Absolutely nothing about this book struck me as non-fiction. I found it to be ridiculous :-( I tried so hard to enjoy it, but I couldn't. To be fair I only got through about an hour of it. Yawn!!
I really enjoyed this book. It's nothing supernatural... it's about good people and bad people and the evil that is inside some of us. This is in my top 5 favorite Stephen King books. It's worth the read.
For me, Charlaine Harris has been really off. I couldn't have been more disappointed with the way the Sookie Stackhouse series ended. However, this book is fresh and had some twists I didn't see coming. It's worth the read. Yay!!!
I certainly didn't expect to be entertained by this book, nor was that my intention. My heart absolutely goes out to Michelle Knight. She never deserved the horror's she faced. Her faith and tenacity are incredibly inspiring and I wish nothing, but the best for her. Having said all of that I can't help but think if she had the "right" person helping her write her story that the message would have been more powerful. I was way more moved and got to know her better on 1 hour of the Dr. Phil show than I did reading this entire book. God bless her.
I don't regret reading this book, but my expectations fell short. It's a decent read... but didn't tell me anything I don't already know or couldn't learn off of TV.
I enjoyed this book more than most I have been reading lately. It's a smooth read with a good story. Not GREAT, but pretty good :-) The narration was very good, too. A good versus evil kind of a story with a good ending.
This is the first book I have read from Nicholas Sparks. WOW was I unimpressed. I could predict the plot for the ENTIRE book. It was painfully predictable. I couldn't sympathize with any of the characters, because they were just so pathetic. I would go along listeniung to the narration and think it wasn't bad then boom... I would get struck with the narrator trying to talk like a Southern woman and doing a really poor job of it. If you like this author I imagine all of his stuff is probably about the same.. and I did finish the book.... which says something... but I won't be reading anything else by this author.
The book was quite lovely. It was inspirational and reflective. Not a must read, but a "worth the read." However, the narration was awful. If she would have just stuck to one or two characters that would have been great, but the way she tried to do so many different characters was just too much. She failed miserably. Again, the book is a good "chick book" though. :-) I would recommend it. Just don't expect much from the narrator.
