I would try another book by Flannery O'Connor just because she is so famous. She seems to be a favorite of many well read people that I know. I would consider trying a few more of her books just to see what everyone is talking about. Bronson Pinchot did a good job of narrating Wise Blood.
Too much dialogue with very flawed characters. I can think of nothing redeeming about the Wise Blood except that I finished it in hopes that it would end well. I was disappointed as I finished the book.
Wise Blood was the choice of my young adult children's book club. I could suggest many other books that would be more enjoyable and challenging for discussion.
Absolutely. James Lee Burke has a wonderful way of "turning a phrase". Will Patton has a wonderful way of verbally interpreting that phrase. I love following Dave Robicheaux and Cleet.
Cleet has to be my favorite. He is human in his flaws and goodness plus - he gets all the best lines.
I drive long distances frequently. The Dave Robicheaux series are perfect for those long drives. I would love to listen to the entire book at one sitting.
In particular I would like to listen to Praque Winter again to here Madeleine Albright set up the Chekoslavakian position in Europe at the beginning of WWII and England's role in the downfall of the Eastern European countries. I found the politics and attempts at mingling the cultures very interesting.
I loved listening to Madeleine Albright read her story. She has had an incredible life of influence in the USA. It was nice to hear the "back story".
I loved the historical perspective that Mrs. Albright brings to WWII.
The book is so much more than the movies or the stage productions. Isn't that true 99% of the time? Simon Vance brings Dr. Frankenstein and his monster to life. Great reading of a great book.
I loved listening to the 3 books all at once. I had read the books as they were published and it was a pleasure to listen to the Hunger Games trilogy. I could not stop listening. Great read and listen for young adults and adults alike. I would love to meet Katness and see where she lives.
Suzanne Collins continues Katness's saga for survival. By now I am totally involved in the characters and how they will handle each new trial. Carolyn McCormick's reading continues to hold my attention. can't wait for Mockingjay!!
Suzanne Collins brings the arena to life with the Hunger Games. Your heart breaks for Katness as she struggles for survival for her family and then as a participant in the games. Ms. Collins balances the reality of the Capital with the reality of the districts. Katness is very believable as she struggles with being a survivor and a teenager.
Alas, Babylon. Will Patton makes you think you are in Florida in the 60's after Russia has attacked the US. As a baby boomer, this book brought back many memories of the Cold War. Mr. Patton's gives a wonderful voice to the times - the apocalyptic times seem very real.
Excellent audible book. Joe Barrett did an outstanding job narrating the book. Owen Meany's voice was wonderful.
