I can't think of a single person who would enjoy this presentation.
Not one of these authors - normally very funny people, some of whom I even know personally - delivered a performance that made me laugh. In fact every moment was cringe-worthy, and I could not even make it through all the authors.
Since there were so many narrators, I doubt that's the issue. Maybe the director is at fault, for creating such uniform suckage?
No. I can't even say,
Normally I have good audiobook experiences and write good reviews. This was just remarkably bad - so bad that I had to write this review. If I can spare one other person from what I went through listening to this book, I have done my good deed for the week.
If you've seen the show Justified, you know who Raylan Givens is, but this book is great even if you haven't seen it.
The story is compelling from page one, and the characters are so well crafted you feel like you've known them for years.
The performance is also wonderful and worth mentioning - so much so that I'm a little disappointed the next book in the series is read by someone else. But here's hoping that one is as good as this one.
I'm a huge fan of this movie - it's one of my very favorites - so I was eager to give the source material a listen.
Maybe I'm just spoiled by Fred MacMurray, but the performance on this was just very lackluster. So much so that I'm not sure I recommend you waste a credit on this title.
When this book came out, just about everyone I know read it and recommended it to me. But you know how it is....
Anyway, now that Audible has changed all that, I heartily recommend this book.
It's a whole fresh story of a truly interesting character. Forget what you think you know about the "Wicked Witch;" she's actually quite a sympathetic and fascinating character.
The book has a rich structure and is beautifully performed. I don't know any reason why anyone wouldn't enjoy it.
You will not be able to stop listening to this book!
I alternated between wanting to listen every second and wanting to stop because I didn't want the book to end.
The characters are so real that I'm honestly bummed I can't go to Seattle and hang out with them.
The story is completely original and beautifully told - with lots of twists and turns - it's utterly delightful. What a great read. I'm recommending it to everyone I know!
Neil Gaiman's lovely voice lulls you into a sweet security - until he GRABS YOU at the very end!
I listened to this as I drove in to work on Halloween morning, well before sunrise, and it genuinely scared me. Well done, Neil!
This was my first Peter Clines book and I have to thank Audible for the recommendation, without which I never would have heard of it.
Clines wastes no time and throws you in the story from the very beginning. Not to give anything away (because A Lot goes on), you should get this book right now, but only start it when you have a couple of free days because I absolutely had the audio equivalent of "I couldn't put this book down." When I wasn't listening to it, I was thinking about it, trying to find ways to secretly listen at my job without getting fired for it.
Bonus: As I neared the end, I found the Peter Clines page on Facebook and posted that I was really digging the book - and a few minutes later he answered me! Yeah, I'm still a sucker for that kind of thing, and it made a great reading experience that much better. So Peter, for that I thank you.
14 is exciting and well crafted, with interesting characters - and the story doesn't unfold gently before you: it grabs you by the wrist and drags you through through a burning building. Prepare to be fully engulfed!
Do yourself and everyone in your life a favor and give this book a listen. I thought I was a good listener and effective communicator before, but this book really opened my eyes (and ears!).
Dr. Goulston gets right to it, with techniques that are easy to understand and immediately usable.
He draws examples from case work to illustrate each technique, but it's easy to see how to apply his ideas to your own life.
Truly, this book is a godsend. I've already helped many people - and myself - with these simple yet amazing techniques. It's great fun to watch them work and to know that being a better listener makes me a better person.
Thanks, Dr. G!
I'm only through two of the three installments and I already really love this book. It's well structured and very enjoyable to listen to.
I was - and continue to be - surprised by the characters and the plot twists. I listen during my commute and have often found myself talking back to Nick and Amy!
This is my first book from this author, but I'm sure I'll read more of her once I've finished.
Not sure how much I do or don't like the readers themselves, but since this book is told in the separate voices of the two main characters, it's interesting and I think very effective to hear it come from two readers.
