Between a learning experience, a thrill, a twist, a turn I found The Cabinet of Curiosities one of the most captivating books I've read. From finding out what a "Cabinet of Curiosities" was to the culture of those times, to Pendergasts' involvement. It was excellent in every way. It was full of surprises! I highly recommend this one!
Just when you thought you had it figured out...it took a turn to the unexpected.
Lilly herself is my favorite character as she is smart...never stops looking at life as a puzzle to solve, fights her demons and from the shadows solves the mystery in a tiny little town where everyone knows everyone else except the hidden heart within Lily.
My favorite scene happened when Lily let her guard down and accepted a mysterious "dectective" into her life.
Oh yes and I did!
Yes, McCammon is the master of subtlety and I'm sure I would learn more about his characters and the plot....
Perhaps in character interaction and variety of colorful personification of characters, so different yet united and are forced together in a desperate situation it is reminiscent of Stephen King's "The Stand".
How could you not love Arielle? (sorry just listened not sure how he spelled it) However, the performance was spellbinding!
Yes....a diploma makes a difference! Ask Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons.
From "Swan Song" to "The Stand" I will (as an auditory learner) enjoy listening to this again...and redundancy bores me.
Someone into historical demonology
It was written without the vivid descriptions that Anne Rice embellishes all of her wonderful books with. It was one word after the other....and a topic that bothered me in an odd way. I simply could not get into it....follow it....or attach myself to it in anyway that could persuade me to finish it.
Michael Prichard was monotone, with no clear distinctions between character that kept me confused and frustrated.
I simply didn't care for the subject matter.
I am a hard core Anne Rice fan, but this book appeared to be written by someone else...totally out of her classic style.
Magical Mystery Tour!
The truth behind the arrest of Rachel.
Edoardo made each character come alive, with their own voice, personality and believability.
The Hero Matthew Corbett brings the reality of life in 18th century Colonial America alive in vivid historical type fiction. Witch trials, pirates, traveling circuses...along with Heroic chivalry makes this one of McCammon's best novels of all!
This Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane was highly recommended by a school librarian and I decided I'd follow the good teachers advice. At first, as retired high school science teacher, I didn't really know how to take it...It was a children's book! I decided to give in and give it a go. Before I knew it, I was totally engrossed in this little character's "search for self" and found myself identifying with him and his bumpy road to self discovery...What a treat! I'm so glad I "Listened to Teacher"! This is a great family book...for children's, adults even something very special to share with Grandchildren....Well Done everyone involved!
It reminded me a bit of Pippi Longstocking meets the Velveteen Bunny!
Yes, it will make you laugh and cry. This book will bring out the cheerleader, friend and the nurturer in the reader
