Anne Tyler glimpses into little lives and exposes the complications, little joys, the beauty and the warts. Noah's Compass may not go where you want it to, but the journey of her prose is amazing.
Eunice. She was such a surprise in the end.
I don't recall the narrator. Not because he was bad, I've just been listening to lots of Anne Tyler books. All narrators were very good to excellent, except one was awful, but it was a woman.
I would assume great either way. But I love when it's performed.
I would have said I don't like time travel stories, but I loved when he went back in time. I loved thinking about all the details the main character had to pay attention to to fit in "back then."
If you could save JFK would you...should you?
I LOVED this book!
It's one of those books you can't wait to listen to--like a print book you can't put down. Scale of 1-10--8.5.
When the dome first appears. You don't think of all the consequences. King does.
No, but made me think a lot.
I love King's writing. He can be so descriptive, and let's me truly see things through a character's eyes.
No one. Go back to her earlier books.
I was never "thrilled" and certainly never scared. The "star" of the story seems to be a cell phone's technology. Maybe it was intriguing when this came out, but this was BORING. I used to love Scarpetta novels, granted she, for me, was the original CSI type story. But I swear they used to be more interesting.
total frustration that I felt compelled to listen to the whole story because I bought it.
I bought Patricia Cornwell's latest, the bone bed or something. Her last two books have been so bad, I think I may use the return option, since I haven't started it.
This is really well written as far as the descriptions and dialogue go. But I saw the end coming a mile away, and it took FOREVER to get there. Kind of unbelievable no one ever asked the right question.
The view into asperger's syndrome. Didn't care about the romance.
if I hadn't read the book, the storyline would have intrigued me. But knowing the ending, no.
