A bit more action, a very drawn out story. I love 20+ hour books, glad this wasn't more than it was.
More action. I don't know it was just blah, I did not have any emotional reaction to any of the characters.
Her voice was good. She has a pleasant rhythm, stops, starts, pauses at all the right spots. Hopefully she gets better material to read.
Probably the parts I wasn't listening to, out of boredom.
Not terrible but not a brag about story.
Sherlock Holmes fans I guess. I had a hard time getting into the book even after several hours. I try to get to the half way point of all books but I couldn't do it this time. I don't know it just seemed so slow.
Yeah, I have tried Laurie King before thinking I am missing something because of all her great reviews. Guess she's just not my cup of tea.
Might in a few years, but it's not the kind of book where you would forget the ending.
I never guessed the ending. There were twists and turns that kept the story interesting. Not as good as the first book but I liked it.
At first I didn't care for the reading,but that may have been because I enjoyed the first narrator. I just started the 3rd book of the series and I am barely able to listen to him.
Narrator of the third book is like listening to The Cat in the Hat. I would listen to Dick Hill over the next narrator ANY day!
It's a good book and did not regret the purchase. I love LONG lengthy books so this was great and worth the credit. If you DON'T like LONG books, then don't get this series and if you do... DON'T b**ch about the length.
Reminds me of something I would have read in Junior High.
It was just boring. Drawn out boring and predictable. The first couple of chapters I kept rewinding because the time line changed and I thought that I missed a chapter. Went from teenagers to adults with no warning. There were times I would just tune out and catch myself, but didn't feel the need to rewind because it wasn't that interesting. I love a 20-30 hour book, if it is interesting.
Sometimes sounded whiny.
I'm glad I only spent $5 for it. I love the sales, and I figure the really great ones I've purchased make up for the lame listens.
I think I am done with Nora Roberts.
She is more of a borrow from the library and return author.
ONLY if it was read by someone else!! This was soooo painful to listen to. The only thing keeping me listening is the fact that I started to listen to the whole series. It has been a long time since I listened to the series and wanted to listen to the Whole story from start to finish. After listening to George Guidall's reading of the "Wizard of Glass" and then starting to listen to this, the only way I can describe this is like taking a pair of knitting needles to your ears to clean the wax out. IT is PAINFUL. All the characters sound just like Mr. King. Sooo sad. This is my second attempt to try and listen to this. I find my mind wandering because it is so monotone blah blah blah. After awhile its like background White Noise. Oh help me get to the end.
NO I WILL NEVER LISTEN to this again. Unless of course a Professional will re-record this.
Just hoping I can get to the end, and remember if I heard any of it. I was looking forward to this book but might have to buy a hard copy and read it myself. Normally I can take Mr. King reading after awhile, but after spoiling us with some Very Talented voice actors, this was torture.
AWFUL, terrible, boring, all characters sound alike, no distinction, monotone, blah blah blah. I just want to scream.
Mr.King Kills a novel. hahahahaha
Buy a hard copy and read it yourself. I waaaaant to listen to this but wow it is really hard.
Wow! I have listened and read at least a thousand books. But can Not ever remember wanting to scream out loud to please stop!!! And I mean this in a good way. I got to a point where I just wanted the Madness, nightmare, delusions to Stop. So Twisted, mind bendingly evil.
None I couldn't befriend any of them. I dread even thinking that people like this exist, but realise they must. That's why this novel if so brilliant.
They are perfect, perfect, perfect! They pull you in, noooo they suck you into the deceit. You want to love one and hate the other, but then it flips. Then you don't like either of them. I swear by the end I thought I was loosing my mind.
This book is so physiologically mind crippling that a film couldn't put all the emotionally disturbed twists together this perfectly. No way in hell, could it be done.
I want to recommend this book to everyone, but I can't because some people really, just should Not read it. Honestly if you've ever been severely emotionally tramatized in a relationship, this may be way too much. My not so bad, not perfect 30 yr marriage even seems creepy after reading this one.
The quality of this Audio is terrible. The volume is up and down. One minute turning up the vol and then pulling ear buds out. Has some good exercises that I have forgotten about, but again
there are not a lot of new ideas here. Actually I think some of the newer speakers may have taken some of her phrases and ideas. Overall I liked it but wouldn't purchase it because of the audio quality.
This is old, if you are just starting with this kind of venture it is great. If you have read more than your fair share then it is a waste of
time. Audio quality if fair to bad.
BLAH BLAH BLAH I have put off getting one of wayne's books for a long time. I'm glad I did, not much info here except, who he has met, how many books he has sold, ego trip, I am happy for him but this is boring. I have listened for 7.5 hours now and I don't think I will ever listen again. Most books I will listen to over and over but this is too ego filled. I would suggest Ester and Jerry Hicks, Sonya Choquette, Cheryl Richardson, Eckhart Tolle, at least they are talking to you, teaching you and not just telling you all about what they have accomplished. I'm trying to learn.
If you heard Adventures of a psychic don't waste your credit. Throw in some Phenomenon and others and you basically have a review of all of her other books. Maybe just get this book and none of the others? I am a Sylvia fan but I am disappointed that I wasted my credit for a rerun.
