This story line is good, the narration is horrifying. He pauses in places without commas which emphasizes words that were not intended to get the emphasis.
The story felt disjointed, it was hard to listen to as a result of the narration. I have tried listening at several speeds, but the narration grated on me. The story was ruined for me and I have put his name on the list of never listen to him again!
A good story, ruined for me by the narrator.
Never again. I couldn't finish listening to this one.
I am sitting stunned, feeling a sense of profound loss now that the story has ended. I wept at the ending because I wasn't done listening. My heart yearned for more and I feel as if I have lost a treasured family member.
Nick Podehl narrated in a way that took my breath away. He made voices that sounded like an entire group of narrators. I have heard some fantastic narrators, but none as good as he. He brought this story to life for me.
The book weaves through time, taking the reader on a journey that makes your heart bleed, your blood boil and your imagination take flight. It is fantasy pure and simple, but so in depth that I can imagine these tales really happened.
There are slow parts and annoying parts that while I listened I thought could have been left out. But now I see they were needed to make the story whole.
This has become my number one favorite book.
When listen to openly this book resolved a lot of the issues I have with my past relationship
I will be updating this review, but this is one of the best books I have heard.
I never realized before why several family members refuse to shop at Walmart. I also never realized that there really is a "Walmart effect" and it isn't simply a made up tale.
That said, this book is slow in some places. It seems to drone on and on about a few things, but it picks back up again. If it slows, hang in there or skip to the next chapter. Be warned, you will miss valuable insight.
I loved the narrator after I got used to his cadence, it was off putting at first, but after the first five minutes, the story grabbed me and I did not care.
I won't give you spoilers but I will say that I am saddened for the places shut down because of Walmart. My heart breaks for the people who work there and who are forced to work there because there are not that many other options. I am sad that the economy driven world we live in would prefer to save a nickel, knowing that we leave our fellow humans in poverty.
I am not judging, I realize that times are rough, those of us struggling to survive can purchase items more cheaply at Walmart. Just remember, those products are less because the quality is often less. Pay attention to the items that falls apart soon after purchase. Pay attention to the quality, and realize that your item purchased here is likely to be less sturdy than one purchased for a dollar more elsewhere.
The money you save is money leaving someone else's pocket. If you can live with it after reading this book, you have weaker morals than I.
I admit it, I am addicted to this series. This book is darker than the first two, but is a great book.
The headline sums it up. The book is great, it combines comedy with lessons in how to do things correctly.
I wasn't sure if I would like this book, most manners books are dry and a little dull. This book was the opposite of all that.
It is a short listen but full of worthwhile information.
This book is full of solid advice for younger workers and older ones. I am in my 40's and still walked away with many nuggets of advice.
The narration was well done, the writing is equally as great.
Short book but a worthwhile book.
Poor Jackie, she tries so hard to be a lady but she seems to keep botching the job over and over again.
This book takes up where we left her last, disembarking the ship and starting her stint in a school for young ladies.
She is a wee hellion and impulsive to boot, and she finds herself caned several times as a result of her naughty behavior.
Katherine Kellgren narrates and does a great job. She manages to make the voices sound like separate people as they should sound. It brings the story to life!
This is obviously not safe for work unless you work alone.
This book is a graphic guide to performing fellatio in a way to not only please your man but to please yourself while doing it. If you have been approaching fellatio as a "fast prelude to the rest of sex", or are a seasoned performer, it doesn't matter, this book will teach you more.
The book is read in an eloquent and slightly sultry manner, the narrator hits the mark with this book. The topic is one that is part story, part instruction manual and she plays bother teacher and seductive story teller excellently. Marie Helene gets high marks.
The story, as with other books by Jean-Claude Carvill is written wonderfully. I am going to be following his books from now on.
Good story overall. This book is not a happy upbeat book. It is stories of what can go wrong and ways to make sure it doesn't.
The book is written as a series of short stories, each illustrating a different problem. It tells what the characters should have done instead.
The narrators are varied, there are a few different voices and they all do a good job reading.
I purchase the kindle versions end got the audible for less. I enjoy the immersion reading option.
