A friend recommended I read The Kite Runner - but finding it on Audible I chose to download and listen. I thoroughly recommend this option. The author's voice (and accent), reading his own story, gives it added drama and charisma. One of the very best books I have "read" through the magic of audible - it gave me hours of walking pleasure - in fact I extended my daily walk from 3 to 5 kilometers, so I could hear more!
I absolutely LOVED this but, in reading the many reviews I have formed the opinion that - if you are a woman you should read the "girl" reviews - men read male! Possible this is the literary equivalent of a "chick flick" which may only be appreciated and enjoyed by our sensitive new age male colleagues (SNAGS)?
A Lion's Game kept me walking for 5 kilometers every day and I loved it! Scott Brick is the very best narrator I have encountered for such a part - he is totally believable. I am looking for more audible by Nelson DeMille - and hopefully starring Mr Brick! Thank you Audible!
A wonderful, unusual plot - just keeps getting better - loved the narrator (particularly that she was not afraid to sing). Even though one pre-empted the eventual connections it was great fun following the steps to the happy ending!
I must be a slow learner! After 21 excruciating hours I finally gave up and deleted it - nothing happens! A continuing saga of non events but a sure thing if you want something to send you to sleep!
