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.
I really appreciate the author making every effort to write an objective book about a controversial subject. Reading this book makes you realize that even without nuance, the facts in this story are absolutely chilling. Anyone who has any interest in the Church of Scientology should absolutely read this book.
This book was recommended by a friend, and honestly I couldn't believe it could possibly be as good as he said. I was wrong. It's a long book, and it spans a lot of time, but it's usually written and the characters are all absolutely wonderful.
This is apparently the first series. The author tells an intense and compelling story in a tight and visually beautiful style. The performance is also perfect. I absolutely recommend this book.
This is probably my sixth or seventh Christopher Moore book. He is a fantastic author, and his stories are all wonderful. All but this one. I think this must be a very early book. The story is not good and the performance is not good either. I constantly recommend his books to friends, but I'm seriously considering asking for a refund on this one.
I don't write many negative reviews, but I just can't recommend this book. The story (no spoilers) could have been interesting, but all the subplots and all the characters are dull, cliched, and sometimes even insulting. Aside from that, the reader was pretty awful too. Maybe if she were better I could have looked away about the plots, characters and dialog? Probably not.
Yes, this was on sale for only $3.95, so I won't ask to be credited back, but if I'd paid a whole credit for it I certainly would.
I was so happy to see this new book that I ordered it the day it was released. Thank goodness Euan Morton is still on board to perform, because he is my new favorite actor of all time. The story continues where we left Pocket at the end of FOOL (also a HUGE recommend), and this is another great Shakespeare mashup by Moore.
Be sure to stick around for the epilogue, read by Moore, which clarifies what is and is not Shakespeare.
Of course I've seen this movie a million times, but having it read was a delight. The reader is great and the book is well worth listening to.
I downloaded this one following my read of THE GOLDFINCH, which I found to be beautiful and compelling.
Tartt has a great gift for characters, and the people she created for this book really did seem to come to life.
I very much enjoyed this book and am about to download her third one next.
LOVED this one! I think this is my third or fourth book of Moore's, and the second with this narrator (Euan Morton) WHO IS WONDERFUL.
Whether you know King Lear or not, this is enjoyable from start to finish (provided you're up for bawdiness, cursing, and general irreverence).
If you're looking to be entertained, this one's for you.
Mary Roach has a real talent for taking subjects no one talks about and asking - and then answering - every single question anyone could ever ask. Her style is easy and conversational, and you can tell she's genuinely interested in all her subjects.
All her books educate and entertain, and this one is no exception.
