Bony Lizzy - Angela really came alive when narrating the witches.
This is a great extension to the Spook series. Delaney takes into the dark with Alice while also going into Alice's back story. I think he wrote Alice a little too much like Tom in this book. I feel Delaney makes her more timid in 1st person as opposed to when he writes he in 3rd person but still an awesome character. As far as narration goes - I felt that Christopher Evan Welch reads a better Alice but Overall Angela did a good job, she really did great on all the other characters just a little blase with Alice. Story was excellent though and I am already looking forward to the next one!
First time listening to a book narrated by Macleod but I felt he did a great job of capturing emotions and voices.
Sanderson is quickly becoming my favorite author. I love his writing style character development, and stories. Steelheart is a cool concept and I feel Sanderson delivers again.
This book was good for the past Loc Lamara but the present story of the 5 year game was not very interesting to me. Worth the read but not anywhere near as good as the first two books. Lynch dables too much into politics and also wastes a ton of pages on uneeded dialouge of the characters performing scenes on a stage.
Loc and jean were the most interesting. Hearing the characters performing their stage acting seemed like filler pages for the author and made be almost stop reading the book.
Chains and the twin brothers.
Solomon Northup's story is a great one. How a free black man became enslaved for 12 years before becoming free again. However, I feel that the story focus and delivery is lacking from Mr Northrupp. I felt that Mr. Northup was writing this as a 3rd person. I feel he leaves out a lot of feelings he was going through during his time of captivity but instead decided to focus on the daily workings of a slave and how they were treated as a whole - (which most people alreay know from History books) rather than opening up and expressing his true thoughts and emotions during this time of tribulation. Perhaps Mr Northup was scared of any reurcussions that would follow if he made to strong of a point against slavery as he proclaims throughout the book that he will not make such an opinion and he will instead leave it to the reader. I recommend this book for anyone interested in this time of American history but I would also Highly recommend Uncle Tom's Cabin.
The ending was expected as it was fortold through the whole story.
I read the book in preparation to watch the movie. I think this would be one of the few times the movie will be better than the book.
I couldn't buy into the power tripping & romance.
Spook Book 12
Narration was decent enough - Not much Hurt could do with such a downer of a story.
All of them and start from scratch.
Maybe I am not intellectual enough to keep up with this book but I was very disappointed in the Fountain Head. It starts out decent enough but then it ends up being a ridiculous battle of power, not for personal gain but personal destruction? Rourke, the main character, is supposed to be the one guy who possess any self worth but he is really just as bad if not worse than all the other characters. I am glad I can say, I made it through this mess but it was one heck of a struggle and I really wish I would have quite before i was a third of the way into it. I am disappointed in this book and do not think I will ever attempt another Rand book but maybe i am too simple to follow such an intellectual themed story. I choose to be simple rather than powerful and pitifully egotistical.
