The title is a bit misleading. The book is informative, but more about Mad Cow Disease then the actual condition and lives of the family that is afflicted with this disease.
First suggestion, is if the setting is Montana, USA; YOU SHOULDN'T HAVE A BRITISH NARRATOR!
Possibly with a better Narrator.
Dean Koontz needs to start asking himself this one question when he is writing... Would people really react in this way? I love science fiction. The author though has to make every scenario and every person believable.
He needs to look back at his old formulary.
No narrator could have made this book good. I'm sorry that he had to suffer through this entire story.
Every character except the physicians little sister.
No. Found the story boring
I had a hard time with imagining a big insect alien story line.
The narrators voices were pleasant to listen to.
I couldn't get through the first hour of this book. It didn't grab me.
Take the religious references out.
I obviously didn't know this was a religious fiction book.
It was alright. Not horrible.
Disappointed. I was looking for a mystery, not a love story of a beautiful 40 year old virgin police detective.
Her other books are so great. This was like a teen age harlequin story. Not like her other stuff at all.
I loathed the pouty spoiled girl voice.
Honestly, from the get go every scene I could handle listening to seemed amateurish..I have a hard time believing this is the same writer who wrote WHO DO YOU LOVE. If this had been the first of her books I'd purchased, I never would have given any of her other really good books a chance.
She should remove this book from stores- both online and walk in stores.
For an abridged book, you would think they would cut out parts of the book in areas where you wouldn't notice, but they cut out parts of sentences and jumped forward to a whole dieffent part of another chapter. Great readers, but they way the editors hacked it up was awful.
Not an abridged book.
The narrators were great
I read other people's reviews on this book, and to the person who said that the protagonist was unlikeable and never apologized for what he did... Well, that reader obviously didn't finish the book. Nelson Demille has a way of writing that absolutely hooks me into the mind of his characters. This one did not disappoint at all. I didn't want this book to end. To the critic of Scott Brick's narration. He did so well in this book that I forgot I was being read to. This is truely a five star book!
I loved this book. I personally thought the plot was great. I too felt at first that I didn't like the reader, but soon got so caught up in the story that I couldn't quit listening.
Interesting story, but author really should not have read her own book. She seemed to stumble through parts of it. The story; however, was good enough that it kept me listening.
The content of the book was okay...but the reader is aweful.
