Of course the story line. It is not the 'usual' historical novel. I truly enjoyed the whole story. I think what made the book even better...was the narrator. Top notch in all his characters. He is now my favorite narator for sure. I plan to listen to the whole series.
Matthew was my favorite character.
When Matthew and Rachel are in the Indian camp. But there were so many favorites.
At the end when Matthew and Rachel were saying goodbye and also the times where Matthew stood up for his principles.
I have to say I was hesitant, but I am very happy that I did listen to this book. As I said in the beginning...wow.
I did enjoy the narrator Emily Beresford...although I don't know if this was the right book for her to read. There were parts that did confuse me. I don't think the story went from scene to scene in several cases smoothly. Although that could be the authors fault. I did enjoy many parts of the book, especially the last 3 hours.
The ghost farmer.
She did a very good job with the reading and making a difference in the tone of her voice. I know being a person of the opposite sex it is difficult to do a male voice if you are female. I don't like the way she portrayed Whitney I guess is my issue. For that matter...I didn't like the character of Whitney.
In the beginning I didn't think so al all. But when I was about to give up on it, I became interested again.
All in all I enjoyed the book. As I said the last 3 hours kept me glued to the story.
I have not read the print version. But the Narrator Lindsay Crouse did a fabulous job of Annie Wilks and Paul.
When Paul sets his own fire.
Both Annie and Paul.....The psycho in Annie and the mental changes in Paul.
I was a bit skeptical...but all I can say is wow. The audio version read by Lindsay Crouse added so much to the characters...especially Annie. I could hear the undertones in the characterizations of both Annie and Paul. Crouse helped me to feel the characters.
Although I have never been in an abusive relationship....the story was easy to absorb because of what I have seen in life
The strength of when she displayed about leaving.
There were so many. But I think it was when she first decided to leave...and she kept going no matter how scared she was.
That is a perfect name for her.
I totally enjoyed the book and will listen to it again. Great job by author and narrator.
I can't compare as I did not read the print version. I was totally please with the audio edition of this book.
Reid has a talent for writing a main story along with side stories...and you are interested in all of them.
I was very happy with her performance.
All the 'dead' women. I would like to know their own heartfelt feelings on how they put up with what they had been dealt in life.
I have read all books in this series and very pleased with #1 and #2...but this book took it out of the park. I was very pleased with everything.
It sits in a tie between Outlander or Swan Song.....both are #1
Not read another book to compare to the story line in this book.
It is hard to pick just one...but I think Jamie
Time travel, war, love and history
I was a bit doubtful about this book. I was afraid it would be a love story with time travel....which is it was....but it was so much more. The narrator was excellent. She had me thinking about the book in a Scottish brogue! She did all the characters with an individual accent and style. The story: I was truly anxious to see what the characters would do. I am just now finishing this first book and have purchased the 2nd book. I just have to know how everything and everyone turns out.
I enjoyed this book because it had a different 'take off' than many of the other 'ghost stories' that you read.
I don't compare this too much with any others. I try to be even and individual about each book. As I said, this book had a nicely done different take off than other books I have read in this genre.
The main character....I enjoyed her very much.
I love my graveyard
I think I most enjoyed the way the author had a different take on the whole ghost story/graveyard theme. Very nicely done.
The true stories that were told.
I can't think of another book to compare to this one.
I liked his characterization of Ed Warren. The reader I felt did a very very good job with all the voice characters in the book. He did exceptionally good with the voices of the demons.
Beware...can be damaging to you dreams.
I did not find the book terror filled and scary as others have mentioned. I found it certainly scary to a point. But I found it....in my belief system... very informative and educational. The book helped me to understand more about how we can avoid the demons of the world. And what can be done if the bad ones do come after us.
Totally Different Scary
When grandpa goes to visit the house on his own.
I enjoyed listening to this book....I didn't give it a 5 because I have read better. Although as I said, I did enjoy this book. It has a scary theme and very well written and read. So all in all I am glad I bought this book. The setting and sense of the book I felt were very well thought out and very well done.
I can't compare because I did not read the print book. But, the audio version is wonderful. Although I wouldn't mind having a print copy to read on a cold winter day/night. This book would be enjoyed in both audio and print.
I think I liked best the fact that Danny's story from a little boy took him to a grown man and how he battled his 'own demons' and went past them.
He truly brought the characters to life for me. I have never listened to an audio book read by Patton, althoug know him from TV and the movies. I was truly very pleasantly surprised and pleased at what a fabulous job he did with all the characters.
I was 100% happy with the story and the reading. This one will be listened to over and over. Great job by King and Great job by Patton.
I loved the audio version and did not read the print version.
The emergence of the characters...either for the good the bad or the ugly.
When Swan forgives 'Friend'.
I did not laugh or cry...but I was very moved by the characters.
I was a bit leary....but after I got into listening I became very involved with the characters and loved the whole book. If you enjoyed the concept of what could/would happen if we had a nuclear holocaust as in Stephen Kings The Stand, you will totally enjoy this book.
