  • Hughes: The Private Diaries, Memos and Letters: The Definitive Biography of the First American Billionaire

    Story
    (191)

    In "the most exciting bio of the year," Richard Hack uses recently uncovered (and in some cases, recently declassified) personal letters, court testimony, FBI files, autopsy reports and exclusive interviews to reveal the man who was a legendary lover, record-setting aviator, award-winning film producer, talented inventor, ultimate eccentric, and, for much of his lifetime, the richest man in the United States.

    Good listen, but the narrator must be about ten years old to be so lame in his pronunciations of people, places, and things. It seems one would have to grow up in total isolation not to know how to pronounce names like "Nadine" and "Tonopah". These are just two examples of dozen's of mispronuncitions. It was annoying especially for a resident of Houston.

    On a rainy November day, police detectives Pia Kirchhoff and Oliver von Bodenstein are summoned to a mysterious traffic accident: a woman has fallen from a pedestrian bridge onto a car driving underneath. According to a witness, the woman may have been pushed. The investigation leads Pia and Oliver to a small village, and the home of the victim, Rita Cramer. On a September evening eleven years earlier, two seventeen-year-old girls vanished from the village without a trace.

    Would you try another book from Nele Neuhaus and/or Robert Fass?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    Twists and turns. Well developed characters


    How could the performance have been better?

    Narrator did not clearly delineate a change of characters from scene to scene. Story would run together and it was hard to tell the change in characters and scenes


    Was Snow White Must Die worth the listening time?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    No

    To most people, Fiona Bristow seems to have an idyllic life — a quaint house on an island off Seattle’s coast, a thriving dog-training school, and a challenging volunteer job performing canine search and rescue. Not to mention her three intensely loyal Labs. But Fiona got to this point by surviving a nightmare.

    Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Tanya Eby?

    I don't think so....


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    I doubt it


    What didn’t you like about Tanya Eby’s performance?

    Multi hour cliche.....too cutsy.....so predictable....felt like 40 hours....horrible...like a car wreck you can't take your eyes of of.....


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I learned a little about dog training


    Any additional comments?

    Keep a roll of duct tape to wrap around your head so it doesn't explode.

    Returning home from a trip to Paris, Boston medical examiner Maura Isles confronts a nightmarish scene. Police cruisers line her street and slumped in a car at the end of Maura's driveway is a dead woman, her head bloodied by a gunshot wound. Cops and neighbors gape at her as she approaches. Only when Maura looks at the victim does she understand why everyone is so shocked by her arrival. The dead woman looks exactly like Maura.

    A. Sanchez says: "Bert"
    "Bad book, Horrible narrator"
    Overall

    This audio book is like listening to white noise between radio stations. My mind keeps wandering. The monotone makes it hard to distinguish characters. The story is so juvenile and cliched that it could have been written by a high school student. The diolog is lame and the characters are developed as though by one who has seen too much television. I am a avid audio book listener and I have rarely felt the need to write a criticism. This is the exception to the rule.I wish I could send it back.
