The only sad part of our Christmas holiday was picking this book to listen to on the 4 hour drive! We love the GaHoole series in written passage only. One of the character voices was so painful to hear we gave up after 2.5 hours! My family has loved audibles since 2005 and NEVER had this issue. Buyer Beware!
Not really ...the characters were not as endearing at all and the story was really slow and I wonder if it would have been better as 1 book than 3. Redshirts and Dodger are making me less annoyed with spending credits but this is no Enders Game or Enders Shadow...or even Mithrage.
Not unlike Pirates of the Caribbean 2 this was The Search for More Money...so no ending because it's a trilogy that could have been one book....and should have been one book.
Stephen Rudnicki is an amazing narrator as is Emily Card.
For the first time in my lust for reading I don't think I will be being the 3rd book. This is inspired by Ruin which sucks because again I love OSC! So to answer the question yes, I am inspired to think twice before buying trilogies from any author even those I love.
NO, I would recommend Janet Evanovitch, Jennifer Cruises or Deborah Harkness.
This book does have an intense part towards the middle end but I don't want to give it away.
ANYONE who knows how to pronounce so many words you mispronounced it was painful!
NO, I listened to Pratchett, Gaiman and Cruises interchangeably with this book so I could get through it as a promise to a friend.
Who ever is supposed to be directing the narrator on this one really screwed up.
hmmmmmmmmmmm, funny, well written and far less insulting to my intelligence than any other romance book I have read previous to this one.
The sheriff who begins as a back ground character and develops slowly but is so likeable. Harry Conick Jr. would play him to a T and even has the right accent.
The town hall meeting at the end.
Temptation is not just the name of the town.
I have struggled to want to read romance as a friend of mine (yet unpublished) rights it and several friends read it voraciously. This book did not insult my intelligence by giving me so many details about the obvious I felt them shoved down my throat. I loved the strong independent and family oriented characters and really look forward to reading another book by Jennifer Cruisie. My friend is reading You Bet or something like that and is loving it.
This story is the essentially the first 40 years of Tina Fey's ride through being an awkward child to an awkward adult with all the funny, sad and embarrassing parts along the way.
Hearing that women are not perceived as funny because I always thought we were!
I have enjoyed watching her on 30 Rock and SNL so it seemed a natural thing to put her life so far story with her voice in the rhythm she usually speaks in.
No, but I can love a book and not want to listen to it non-stop for 8 hours.
Worth the read.
The characters are well written and stay true to themselves through out..
Serene is a strong women who sacrifices popular for moral.
The end but I do not want to give it away. I was sad to finish the book (something my husband warned me about) because it was so enjoyable.
Elantris Gods or Pariah you decide!
They looked at data, personal experience and MRI's to determine how and why people respond the way they do to trauma and that has value.
Maybe Tipping Point or Freakenomics to make a far fetched corollary.
She sounded vested in sharing the story and was easy to listen to for long stretches.
Your world has just been torn apart by the scariest thing imaginable how will you respond?
Amazing story of survival and stoic unrelenting will to live!
Victor Herman has changed how I feel about obstacles,set back an disappointments.
He has also given me the gift of caring about political prisoner and their treatment.
I was really hard to get through some of the graphic nature of the book with regards to torture and the goings on of starving people but worth enduring the hard to read parts as his life as truly amazing.
Russia's Lindberg who was really America's second Lindberg! Victor Herman truly embodies the spirit of America and it's people desire to not allow hardship to stop them from survival and happiness. He reminds me of so many 9/11 survivors in their desire to keep focused on the reality that awful things happen and you can still move forward.
No, this is my first book read by him.
They tried to take away everything but his spirit could not be broken.
I would have preferred not to delved into the lives of 14 year old boys with such detail. As a mother of soon to be 14 year old's I found it WAY to much info and not a mystery at all which is what I actually thought the book was. It is beautifully written but I am not the intended audience.
Nope, while his story was worth reading it's not the right genre for me and I have no idea how I ended up purchasing this book (again a really well written story) but totally not my genre.
I thought the end of the book was great and well thought out but the entire book is well thought out.
nope, I think they cover it all. some of the character could be books in and of themselves like Ruprect who I found interesting but not a sequel more of another stand alone book like Enders Shadow.
This 1930 something book is so clearly the inspiration for parts of the Matrix, Gattica and Idiocracy it deserves to be in the credits. Really worth the listen!
