I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the others in the series. I found it interesting that the story line in the books are very different than the movie. As a matter of face there is no similarity at all. The only thing that is similar are the names of the characters.
Enjoy this fabulous read!
Robert Harris does a very good job describing the Roman condition and Roman politics and if you are interested and know a bit about Roman politics you will enjoy this book. I have always enjoyed learning about Roman history, but I found my self board. The book is complicated in the story but if you pay close attention it finally comes together.
Simon Jones definitely captured a voice that is what I have always heard in my head as a Roman voice although it was in English and not Latin.
Overall the book is okay, but I would not add the series (if there was one) to my series list.
This is a fantastic series and the perfect 2nd book. This series opens the doors to how Earth and other worlds may co-exist. This particular book is not just an extension of the first but opens the reader to various aspects to life on the moon and how society works. While the first book helped the main character disappear, this book looks for a disappeared and helps the reader understand the dilemma society faces when interacting with alien worlds.
If you like science fiction and space fantasy this is a fantastic series.
This is a new series for me but I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a bit difficult to understand the various groups at first but as the book goes on it is all explained and now I am hooked and want to see what happens to David and Molly.
If you like vampires, aliens, and a great hero you won't be disappointed.
This book was depressing. I had hopes that the plot would improve but it did not and the narration made the book even more depressing. If you want to waste your time then go ahead and purchase this one. The focus of the book is on the vacancy of a council position and how the death of the previous holder of the seat effected those in the small town. This would not have been a bad book if there was some hope, but as the book continued on it down the same path and became more and more depressing. Because of this I must urgently find a better book to fill my mind to help me enjoy the rest of my day.
I was hoping that Rowling's next book would be as exciting and enjoyable as her Harry Potter series; however, this is not worth the paper it is printed on let alone the purchase of an audio version. I'm not sure if I will ever read another of Rowling's books if this is what she writes in the future.
The Rose Garden takes the reader into a world of passion, friendship, and love while balancing the present and the past. The ending was fantastic and had such a twist I had to listen to the entire book again. I hope Susanna Kearsley writes more of this story and makes it a series.
I read this book a while back and decided to read it again. The setting is off world and deals with how humans and aliens handle the exploration and conquering of space. I did not realize this was a series but I have added this to my list of series to read. You will not be disappointed.
This is one of the worst books I have ever listened to.The book was touted as a book about Warriors; however, it is a collection of short stories, and only two were worth listening to. Most of the time it was difficult ti know when the reader moved from one story to the next. I believe the reason confusion existed is because most of the stories left the reader hanging. Many time the story really did not have a conclsion and left the characters unresolved.
If you are looking for stories with warriors that succeed this is not the book for you. Most of the hero's are really victims or bullies. One story is about a woman who was abused, and this woman was touted as the warrior since the story was about her, turned out to be a serial murder. I do not consider this person to be warrior regardless of the brutality done to her.
I found most of the stories boring and confusing. I do not recommend this book.
This book keeps you listening. The twists and turns keep the reader looking for the obsession, which there are many.
Although this was a bonus download from Audible it is not worth free. My time is important and taking the time to listen to this when I have so many other interesting and compelling books to listen to I feel I have wasted my time.
