Kate Reading has to be one of the most talented narrators around. I could listen to her all day, and have! I've been a fan of the wilderness series for years, and love this book and thought the ending was good for such an amazing series. I'm really sad to see it end, though! The only thing I can find fault with, and that drove me nuts the whole book, was the "Birdie" character. I kept wanting to spank her--really annoying. Nobody would or should treat a 10 year old child like this or give her this much attention when there's a whole clan of kids! I realize the author was using her to tell parts of the story, but I'd rather she'd done it with an adult character--this drove me nuts! Otherwise, awesome series!
No, but only because of the narrator. Can't stand the way he constantly tries to leave the sentences
Yes, definitely! Loved the idea of finding something like this meteorite, and was never quite sure whether they would succeed in transporting it or not.
ANYONE! This is the second book I have listened to that was narrated by him, and I will never buy another book that he narrates. His cadence is so irritating that I just cannot tolerate it for another book.
No extreme reaction, but I really enjoyed it.
Somebody please retire Scott Brick....please, please, please.....
I was held captive (no pun intended) from beginning to end. I had to keep telling myself it was a "story" the whole way through. A few things bothered me though. I can't imagine that a woman who had had this happen to her would go jogging alone all the time, and the ending just never quite rang true with me. Still and all, I listened to it twice back to back--gut wrenching story.
I found the narrator really annoying--sounded like he was eating most of the time. I thought this would be interesting, but it kind of left me "why?" at the end--I'm not actually sure if I finished it or not...
If you like Anita Shreve, (and I do), you'll love this book. Very thought provoking, and has you finding sympathy with unlikely characters. I was really torn about my reactions to this book...Highly recommend it!
I bought this book because I live near Berlin, PA, which celebrates the Whiskey Rebellion every year. I wanted to find out what exactly Berlin's role was in this incident in history. As it turns out, they never really mentioned Berlin (pretty funny, actually) but I was spellbound by what I learned about the actual event, as well as the history of the time. Great read if you're a history buff!
I love this series and really enjoy listening, although I'm glad I read all the books first. If you like this series, you'll like the Time Travelers Wife too--Great books!
This is the first John Grisham novel I bought from audible and I enjoyed listening to it as much as reading it. Great new way to enjoy Grisham!
I bought my 70 year old mother and aunt MP3 players for Christmas and bought this version of the Bible and loaded it for them. They absolutely loved it. The only complaint comes from my teenagers about their Grandma wearing ear plugs and an MP3 player all the time--says it makes them look bad! LOL!
I loved this book--kept my interest the whole way through. Kind of reminded me of Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. Could definitely tell it was written from a man's point of view though...!
