This story is not light and entertaining, but I am glad that I listened to it. It really did make me think about how society sees persons with mental challenges, or any types of handicaps or differences for that matter. It also said a lot about how important companionship and friendships are. Don't expect to feel better after listening to this book - it's not a feel-good book - but I think it's worth listening to.
This was a great book. It is a marathon as opposed to a sprint. But I enjoyed it. I liked the characters and the factual history blended with the author's interjections to make the story more interesting and enjoyable. It's so hard to believe that humans can treat other humans in such an obscene manner as happens in the book. I would recommend listening! The narration was well done as well.
I tried....I really did. But I just couldn't get into this one at all. I gave up on it quite early on. Maybe it gets better? It's difficult to listen to and absorb, in part because the names are so challenging and hard to remember and keep track of. But also because I didn't like the way it was written and wasn't enjoying it at all. I'm afraid that I can't recommend this book.
It's a little hard to listen to action being described and this one has a good deal of action. I think it would make a better movie than a book. At first I wasn't sure if I was going to like it, but as I continued to listen, I grew to like the main characters enough to want to find out what happens to them. The whole concept of people having special "powers" is very intriguing and makes for a good story. I'm not sure that I will continue with successor books in the series, but I did enjoy this one well enough.
I liked everything about this one -- the characters, the story, the references to famous people that I knew of, and the narration. I would definitely recommend it if you like a good story!
I would definitely recommend this one. I liked the story and the characters and enjoyed the narrator's accent as well. The book made me feel good and that's my primary goal when reading or listening to books. :-) I loved rooting for Dodger and his successes!
I enjoyed listening to this book! I love the writer's style -- she describes things very well and made me feel like I was there. The story was entertaining and I looked forward to listening to it and missed it when I was done with the book. I would recommend it and will be looking for other Kate Morton books to read. There is a good deal of jumping around in time. At first it seemed annoying, but as the story went along, I got used to that and it actually worked pretty well.
Certainly not one of my favorite books, but it's not bad. If you're looking for a story as told by a dog, I certainly preferred "A Dogs Purpose". But I did like the characters in this story and enjoyed listening to it. I feel like I learned some lessons about positive attittudes and how to endure thru the toughest of times. If I was a big fan of race cars, I probably would have enjoyed it more.
I listened to all the Shades of Grey and loved them all. But was so disappointed in Bared to You. It's a very wimpy story wrapped around explicit details of vanilla sex....again and again...and again.... Everyone in the book is beautiful, which is also very annoying. Didn't like it at all and would ask for a refund if that was an option. The narrator did a decent job in spite of the story.
