Oh ya but thats why im listening now instead of reading.
There was enough interesting events along the way.
He actually stayed away from having an illicit affair along the way, that showed grace. Yet his views and experiences along the way seemed fresh and inspiring.
Bill is not the best narrator but this narrative on the history, of things I never knew kept me on and I couldnt stop. I listened in two evenings and got a lot of work done besides. Loved it, and now know so much more behind the scenes and what the setting was, why and how come they did things then. etc. Very good!
I couldnt get into this book. I have enjoyed a lot of David Rosenfelt, but maybe its just me...
I don't know who wrote this book, and I've read all of his books. This is not what I expected. For example flying in a small plane at 1500 feet and she can tell the water below has the consistency of thick oil? huh? And did he do his research on coal mining? In Canada this is not even close to how coal is mined! Its like he has a severe agenda on coal. Sure there is places where coal and corruption combine and you get a bad "seam", like what I expect in China? But then set the story there. The narrator is the worst in the first 3 chapters, you have to skip those completely. Her voice sounds like she is laying in bed and reading to her dog. Boring and raspy! Sorry I am returning this one.
Reacher does it again. Even though the conclusion was a bit wimpy and some of the antics of dodging bullets seems unreal.
What an absolute boring story line
Not this author
Very good Narrator's.
I couldnt get past the first part 1 its sooo bad.
Yes it was worth it
The plot was very interesting
I had to listen to it the second time once I was finished so I could pick up all the detail I had missed. Very good listen and was exactly what I expected in Jack Reacher.
Yes it was a refreshing story, even though it was a sad and very provoking story line. Life is that way though its not all perfect and what do we make of it despite that.
The reconciliation was so jaw clenching even though he didnt deserve it. His dad's way was so evil, and was so unrepentant, naturally I had to hate him. Grisham brought out that hate so well. Even though I didnt want to hate; then at the last Grisham even gave me just a glimse as his dad's thinking that created him to do such a horrible deed. I almost wanted to feel sympathetic to him.
Easy to listen to.
The pitch, oh the pitch! It was so wrong.
I loved these books but this one is horrible. The narrator is the most discusting speaker. I cant even get past the first chapter. I have tried and tried and finally gave up.
Only if the narrator changes
Jesus Christ is reduced to another gifted man, just like Mohammad, Gandhi and other people of the ages. Even comparing Conner's gift to Jesus is a stretch since Conner's gift does not bring peace, and definitely does not bring people together. This story is the modern day religion that tries to parallel the real Jesus and attempts to bring another alternative belief to the Gospel of Peace. In the end it just brings more sorrow, to a world full of
Don't ever try to compete with the real Jesus and his message for mankind - the Gospel of Peace.
Richard is an excellent writer, as I have listened to other stories of his. He makes each character come to reality.
This is a very sad book, very disappointing.
