This one took me a little bit to get going. I was listening to it and the reader has such a great soothing lilt that I kept getting caught up more in her voice than the story. Once things got rolling I enjoyed the characters and really liked the honesty that comes through each one in different situations. I won't read/listen to the rest right away but I will eventually. Great if you are looking for a marathon read not a sprint.
This is packed with a ton of information about cancer and the history of the search for the cure. I wish the author would have spent more time on the naturalistic methods of treating cancer that have been tried, but he stuck solely to the medicines and surgeries that are preformed in traditional hospitals. All that to say, it was very informative overall.
It was author read, and he did ok just read way to fast.
Lots of tips and tricks like do that biggest and baddest thing on your list first instead of wasting time with the little things.
Better suited to a person in a business situation, but ok for someone who is just flat out busy and needs help prioritizing.
Too simplistic. I realize that it was for kids, but even so it was a bit surface level.
I liked Po.
Jim Dale could read from a microwave manual and I would listen to it. That being said, the story itself was a bit bland.
I hate to be the person who jumps on a band-wagon and obviously this series is a huge one right now, but I really enjoyed this novel. I see this series as a cross between Lord of the Rings and Pillars of the Earth, which just makes it fantastic. The reader is not my favorite, but he's not the worst either so it's ok. It took me a bit to get used to the cadence of his voice, but once I adapted I enjoy his gravelly tones. Highly recommend this series and I have already downloaded book two.
As soon as I finished A Discovery of Witches, I immediately went online to find out when I should expect the sequel. It was a long wait, but completely worth it. Harkness' view of Elizabethan London and Europe is just awesome, and the trip to Prague was an added bonus that I had not expected. Not only did the plot line get more compelling, but Harkness was also able to weave in the difficulties of the newly wed. I savored every minute of this novel.
I so enjoyed listening to this book. The reader was just amazing and suited Diana perfectly. She also did some pretty convincing accents for the various characters throughout the story. This really is like Twilight for adults, but there is an actual plot line that makes it that much more enticing.
I relate to Diana in more ways than one and think she is a wonderfully fleshed out character.
Too many to choose from :)
Their love was forbidden, but too deep to be ignored.
Just a great book and the audio makes it even better. One I will listen to again and again.
This is the first non-fiction book that I have listened to, and I thought the reader was average. He made strange pauses and there was too much wait time inbetween chapters.
The book itself is amazing overall with the amount of facts that it holds. Foer makes some philosophical leaps that I can't hang with, but on the whole this is a book that you can't ignore and forces you to look at your moral code and decisions on a daily basis.
For the most part, I did like the reader. The story was a little different than I thought it was going to be and there was just too much world building in this first one and not really enough story. I was really frustrated with Mac's inability to accept the Fae world that she is now a part of.
I will eventually finish the series, because I think I will like the others better.
Mac was a good character with her Southern drawl.
