I was very happy to learn that there are three Audiobooks by the author; expecially that John Keating would the narrator. I quickly became interested in the wonderful characters Mr. Taylor, the Author, created, and I believe whomever listens to these wonderfully happy stories will find themselve reliving their memories.
Getting a first-person view of History from the inside. Mr. Gates book is written in a straight-forward manner, in language easily understood, introduces the reader to the central figures who controlled events and consequently our lives in the recent past. He introduced me to the President and it changed my jaded view. I really liked this book, and enjoyed it throughout. I give it a 5 star rating.
He became Mr. Gates to a point that I thought it was, in fact, Mr. Gates. I appreciated the epilogue because it let me hear Mr. Gates actual voice. It struck me funny that Mr. Newbern's voice and presentation became more powerful as the Sect. of Defense that the actual voice of the author. (No disrespect intended)
Sorry, I don't see this a movie.
I recommend it without qualification!
Its mystery and suspense, and the villan is really evil.
Lane he is someone whom you love to hate.
When the villain's debt is paid.
It did because it translated to current event for me.
The early on shocking twist.
From the 1st page on, I was "persuaded" by the author through the narrator that this audible selection would be exciting and dramatic, which is just what I was looking.
The plot led me from one page to the next by piquing my interest by switching scenes, teasing the reader. It led me to eagerly press on to the finish.
His wonderful ability to assume the identity of each speaking character by changing his voice to become the character. It's outstanding...his voice control, and he sustains it through out the read.
I really liked this book. The characters are really interesting. I enjoyed it all.
The interaction between Jack and Susan.
Mr. Hill is an outstanding character builder. He brought them all to life for me.
Yes, and I did with a late night sleep break.
I'm just glad I'm retired and didn't need to worry about lost sleep. I read it, I read it all without stopping. Delicious! Get it, get it now!
Jack Reacher is my favorite character. He is to me, a modern Micky Spillane character: "Mike Hammer." A series I loved. A character that earned 15 all-time best selling fiction titles in the U.S for the author.
His versatility to bring to life everyone who has a role in Child's novel
Yes, and I did!
I'm working on getting them all.
Characters that the reader will quickly come to stand beside or hold at arms length. These novel, will have you searching for more information about the life and times of all the characters and creatures that Jean M Auel introduces you too.
The believabilityof the story, and the narriative.
Research and on-site observations
I've reread the books twice.
While I enjoyed listening, the "texting" between the parties was very difficult to listen to. I probably would have brushed over those frequent encounters in the print version.
I enjoyed all of the principals in the novel especially their complexity. Favorite? I'd have to choose Christian.
I haven't; but intent to seek more of her work.
Not extreme, but began to appreciate the "TLC" interaction between the characters.
The book compares to "Lady Chatterley's Lover".
The book failed to deliver after what seemed to be a very promising read in the beginning. Maybe it was not meant for a male reader. Sorry!
I really liked this book. The author takes you on a journey that puts you in the Narrator's pocket and "doesn't let you out" until the very end. Wow, what a thrilling ride.
