I have always been a fan or Anne Rice but this book was a huge let down.
A plot would have helped. It's much like a journal. Just giving the reader different things that happen to the writer. I managed to finish it somehow waiting on the plot or purpose to be reviled.
Maybe she was pushed by her publisher to get something written?
I have enjoyed many of her other books. She has made a good name of herself but that does not condone writing something and taking my hard earned money just because of who she is. She has gotten stale and lazy, riding out the fame of her name.... I am very disappointed.. don't waist a credit ..
I found this interesting, its not like a regular story, Its a series of interviews. It gives you what may be fresh looks on this kind of event,, I enjoyed it
I really did try this book, The woman who is the star of the show is an older woman who has lost some family and wishes to commit suicide. I say let her, She is spoiled beyond anything, she seems to be bothered by people who do not know who she is due to her career in wood working. I suspect Mrs King,( no relation) must also be like this,, a " You should know and love me " attitude. I am rude to people who want to be friendly,..Im very very self centered. And every man loves me! oh poor me, my life is so hard, cry cry..
This kind of attitude bothers me greatly, I usually like me heros.
My suggestion is to overlook this book unless you to are spoiled and rich brat!
It was a bit of a slow starter but onve I got started I could not stop..
Joe Hill is proving to me that it is in the blood..
Unique and interesting,
I did not care for Kate Mulgrew, She gave them all a bit of a southern accent and I hate her man voice but the book is worth it.
I think so,, if you need something to sleep by then this is for you.
I hate to put down the classics but what a snore.
This was an interesting story. I found it hard to see it as the writer does. His story is a good story but I think if this happend things would be different. Not to say there is anything wrong with this way.
The story also has some uplifting moments. A laugh when not expected.
The ending was left hanging just a little for me. It would end a movie well. Just a couple loose ends. This is where the reader is asked to use thier own imagination.
I would recomend this book to my friends and family.
A very touching story about a boy and his father. Set in the 50's and early 60's in Montana . The story captured me quickly and I could not stop listening.
The performance is great.
I enjoyed this book all the way. I laughed out loud.
This is a classic story with a brand new twist of humor.
Smartly written and very well read.
But the overdone details here are annoying. If I cared about the little things people do such as, tturning thier head to the left and right and nodding, I would not be a fiction fan. The story is ok. Interestine even. The "details" distract from it.
I also knew early what would happen in the end. Anybody who is a big reader of fiction should be able to do the same. Only a so so read.
A total work of fiction that gives life and voices to the fuzzy stars of the story. I started this book with little knowledge of the story or author. But im glad I did. What a great fantasy. Filled with love ,mystery, imagination and wonder. A wonderful childs story as well.
Although it is somewhat far fetched it is a great story. Full of wonder and imagination.
A story I would give to my children.
I really liked the fact that the young man never gives up on life, a story about going on in the face of certain death.
I was not crazy about the readers accent, i found it annoying but i understand the need for it. Any fiction reader will enjoy this adventure. An instant classic.
