Learning about the "real" people that played huge parts in the French Revolution.
Madame Tussaud. A sculptor, as am I. What an adventure to be so closely entwined in the terrible events of the time.
It was fluid and well done.
It would be her. Obviously she was an amazing artist, who worked and lived hard. She is strong, and could fit easily into this modern time.
If you like historical novels, this one is packed with so much first hand information.
No. Poor narration.
Christian and the genre.
The reader is a young woman, and if I hear "Oh my!" again, it will be too soon.
It's Koontz. I always have a hard time putting them down.
Be sure and start withe the first " Odd".
Just before I read the rest of the story.
I don't want to ruin it for others. But, now I must find out how or if this is really true!
You will either know the truth, or like me, you are bound and determined to find out if this is the TRUE STORY.
Yes! The mystery and the revelations bond two stories of two seriously damaged women together.
Definitely the girl techno-PI. She makes you want to applaud her way of dealing with her life. She wants justice and is the heroine.
The ending is no fairytale, but I hope that there is going to be a sequel. It does leave you with a desire to see her happy and the possibility that her story will continue.
Enlightening, suspenseful, emotional.
Probably the attempt to save his life by the young doctor.
I'm an artist, I can not work with my hands and physically read a book at the same time.
It's like the Titanic. You already know the ending, but, now you know "the rest of the story".... Or do you?!
I listen to O'Reilly frequently on TV. He's a great speaker, and story teller. And a great author!
Actually, I had listened to it before I joined Audible.
It's similar to nothing I've read.
He's very good with all the characters. He reads it, as if he wrote it.
Koontz keeps it moving so that you can not stop listening.
Seriously good advice!
Don't take it personally.
You should know that there is a prayer at the end. If this is not your deal ( Christian theology or belief), turn it off when he starts in with "Let us pray". Otherwise, it is a fantastic way to help yourself find peace of mind, especially if your parents were socially dysfunctional and passed it on to you. It will change your perspective of the people around you (even the guy in the car behind you gesturing rudely).
Keeps you in suspense.
King is usually very bloody. But,I loved the idea that we could change history. But, there's a twist... "If we could, should we?".
It's a little like a Crighton story, but, more historically correct.
This and Gerald's Game are my favorite King novels!
