I decided to listen to the Shining since King is coming out with a follow up to the Shining later this month. What a great listen! If its been a while or if you haven't read it,DO! It captures your attention from the get go. Can't wait for the follow up!
Orange is the new black kept my attention because the narrator did an excellent job it was rather well written HOWEVER nothing really happens. Is kind of like a year in the life of..... It just tells daily details.
I enjoyed this book so much.
The narration was OUTSTANDING! Among the very best narration I've ever listened to.
The story included so many interesting pieces- 1690's law, justice, medicine, prejudices, fears, fashion, housekeeping, cooking, city development... I really could feel the world back then!
At just over 30 hours, it's a bit of an undertaking but I loved it!
The narration was grating, I couldn't connect or even empathize with the characters, let alone like them. In fairness, I didn't complete the title but I listened way longer than I wanted to thinking maybe it would get good. Nope. I really wanted to like this book!
The story lost an awful lot by not having the right narrator. You could hear her breathing and swallowing and her voice was just droning.... I finished the book because the story was good by MY GOODNESS I couldn't wait to not have to hear her voice...
The story was enjoyable and I will keep up with the series. It was typical Nora Roberts- not a bad thing however. The narrator drove me nuts with all her yelling but when she wasn't yelling, I thought she was very good!
Joe hill has a way of getting into your childhood brain and pushing those childhood fears! It's interesting to me that even though the narrator had a voice that I did not like at all, it added to the harsh environment of the story and I can't imagine anyone else giving voice to this. I was kept interested all the way through.
Where to begin- Zombie stories are my favorite. So needless to say, I've read many. While even though some zombie stories are predictable, I still thoroughly enjoy them. Now Septic Zombie is completely original! A ballerina zombie? How original! Rock star zombie? Brilliant! This young lady ( she's SEVEN ?!?!!!) has talent and she will be on MY watch list.
Anyone care to start a fan club :)
I am a huge huge fan of the tv show and this was just a great book(s) to feed my addiction!
Gives insight into the governor and just gives great food for the zombie hunger!
I am a huge fan of post apocalyptic zombie books so I am always looking for something in that genre and while I love maberry, I just didn't like this one as much.
