I wouldn't, only because I've never been the type to read/listen to a book twice. It's nothing negative about the book itself.
The ending....although I won't say anything more to spoil it
I enjoyed her performance for all the characters. She did an amazing job distinguishing them.
Absolutly. I was highly disappointed when I would arrive at my destinantion and have to turn off the book.
This story has always been one of my number ones. I read this back in my high school days but had to see the movie to understand it. The narrator did an exceptional job giving you a visual of the characters and situations just by the inflictions in his voice. He also did an amazing job capturing each character's personality when doing their voices.
Alex, of course. He's the villain, hero AND victim
I would say yes, if I "read" books twice, but once I finish a book I'm very unlikely to read it again. Although I did love this book.
I can't think of any comparisons
She did a PHENOMENAL job capturing the characters identities and emotions with her voice
I became obsessed with getting through just one more chapter and finding ways and the time to listen to it
I'm not to sure if I'd purchase an audible or hard copy of any of Mary Roach's books again. I still haven't decided if it was the narrator I didn't enjoy or the actual content.
I have no idea who I would've cast as a narrator, but it sure as hell wouldn't have been Bernadette Quigley. I COULD NOT stand the snotty way she interpreted Mary Roach's opinions. Nor could I stand the way she felt the need to use an accent for every person that is quoted in the book. Specifically, the Middle Eastern doctor in the chapter about reincarnation. Totally and absolutely obnoxious.
Spook: When a close-minded skeptic continues being a close-minded skeptic
I only finished this audio book because I paid for it. Otherwise, it wouldn't been deleted after chapter two. The only things I actually enjoyed were learning about some of the scientific/medical aspects of the search for the afterlife.
