I am getting so tired of listening to the sample and decide that the book will be good, then 3-4 chapters in the language gets really trashy. Why does authors do that? Do thay think that they have us snagged and will listen to the end? No more for me! I think that books without bad language would get mild listerners as well as the hard-core listeners. Trashy books only get trashy listeners.
Great book and of course you can't beat Scott Brick for suspense novels. It would have been really enjoyable to listen to if it didn't have constant f----- words. That language wasn't even necessary to make the story good! If Clive Cussler and Steve Berry can write an exciting novel without trashy language and be such great authors, why can't others? Is there people who refuse to listen to a book unless it has a lot of bad words? I don't plan on listening to any more Tom Clancy (even if he is a well known author) because it isn't worth being subjected to the trash that goes with it.
I feel like the description was very misleading. Yes. It is a very sad real life story, but I thought it would be more about the search for mother and son. The majority of the story is about details completely unrelated to the description.
I didn't know what I expected, but was really surprised when the book ended because I couldn't stop listening. It is a good book. I plan to get more of Kris Nelscott's books.
I didn't know that the F--- word could be used so many times in one sentence. The story could have been really good and much shorter if the F--- word was removed. Do all Irishmen use such language or just McKinty?
The language is just discusting! Too bad. Won't ever listen to this author again.
Great listen! I loved that Thom put so much research into the book and opened up insight into what our country was really like during that time. Activists would like us to believe otherwise, but in reality life was hard, cruel and heartbreaking - for everyone. This book portrays strength, endurance and love so well.
I got a lot of housework done over the weekend because I couldn't stop listening. The ending isn't at all what I thought it would be. Grisham kept me guessing the end all the way through. Great Book!
I thought I could handle the book (from listening to the sample) even though the performace wasn't highly rated by others. Should have listened to them - not the sample. The reader is really awful. I kept wanting to give him an allergy pill - he is so nasel!
Had to keep listening because the story is really good, but probably won't listen to any more by this author because the language ruined the listening experience. Great performance by the reader.
