Even though I felt like Frank Lloyd Wright was an opportunist and his outright abuse of the women and people in his life, the story was compelling enough to keep listening to the book.
Yes, I would. He is so descriptive in his story line and he drew you into the story.
I think he made the book much easier to follow than if I had been reading it. I can see where reading the book would have been much more difficult to follow. Mr Gardner was an extraordinary narrator in his performance. I would definitely want to listen to other books narrated by him.
When he was in China and his paramour for the moment left him and traveled into the mountains to get away from Frank. Then the letter writing back and forth between the two and then Mr. Wright showing up on her doorstep, and the two spending some time together alone before they went back to Hong Kong. He had an uncanny way of always getting his way.
Anyone interested in this book, I would recommend they listen to it rather than read it.
Probably in the middle. I had not read any of the hype on the Fifty Shades although there was quite a bit of it on Pinterest. I just didn't pay attention. By the end of the trilogy though it had grown on me and I would have to say that it had moved up in my list of favorites.
When Anastasia meets grey at the Hotel and he brings the contract for her to read. Ana's character is such a thoughtful character and I liked that about her. She was her own person and she did not just rush into anything she did.. I adored her all through the trilogy.
Everything! She was spectacular! She did an awesome job narrating on all three books. She became one of my favorite narrators through this narrating of this trilogy.
Yes I did because of the subject matter of the book, I found myself having emotions of anger, sadness, and even happiness at some points. It definitely is a series that takes you on a ride of emotions, so you had better be ready to expect that before you read the whole trilogy.
I started reading this series with trepidation but easily got sucked in by the story line. I know there are many that would not be brave enough to read it, but I am glad I did. I feel it is a piece of work well written and takes the listener on an emotional ride that you find yourself remembering parts of it long after you have finished it. I am flad it became a part of my library.
Because I know the author personally it rates pretty far towards the top of the list.
Donna and her brother. Because of the experiences they had to endure.
In talking to Donna about the audible book she said sometimes she thought that maybe she should have narrated it her self, but, after listening to the book I think that Carrington did a superb job of narrating this book and portraying all of the characters. I sincerely enjoyed her performance.
I did have an extreme reaction. There may have been some laughing but more crying. It was so sad to see how Donna's Mother left she and her brother long the way to be with this "evangelist". Of course later finally finding out that their Mom was sleeping with him and having children by him.
The journey through her life following this lifestyle had to be one of complete confusion to a young child, but they followed along being made to feel this was the only life there was to live.
As Donna became older and rebelled against the way she had been brought up, she always had thoughts in the back of her mind about David Terrell and his teachings., but mostly missing the children she had grown up with.
I have been to two events where Donna has come to talk about her book, they were intimate enough that I was fortunate enough to sit with her at both events. In talking to her and now having listened to the book, it is quite amazing to me that she grew up to be the outstanding person she is. Many others would have been felt beat down and not have risen above the life she endured.
I highly recommend this book. It is a story that will leave you feeling so glad that she rose above her childhood and youth to become a wonderful woman and author.
For me it is as I am blind and am unable to read the print version. I used to love to read the print versions of books and rarely listened to audio books; only if I was traveling. Now with it being my only option I am thrilled to have the option of audio books.
Since this is the only the 2nd Vince Flynn book I have listened too I would have to say the first one I listened to. The reason being is I like the continuity of the characters.
The expression and different nuances of the characters. There are always some narrators that are better than others but I believe he does a fine job of bringing this book to life. and holding your interest from one chapter to the next.
Another wild ride with Mitch Rapp
CJ Critt is a great narrator for this series! She really makes each personality come to life. I enjoy having some of the same characters surface again in this second book of the Stephanie Plum series.
It has to be Stephanie Plum. She just plays such a dunder-head of a personality. In the part she plays as a Bounty Hunter, it is just so darn funny the way she plays the part. In reality I would think someone who would be as dense a part as she plays ,would surely get knocked off, but she always comes out on top with the help of all of her awesomely funny friends. I love it!
Like I said earlier. She has a knack for creating the characters in a way that they really come to life in your mind.s eye
Yes. If I had the time to do that, I certainly would. great read!!
I really like this series. Janet Evanovich has a winning combination of characters in this series. I like her style of writing. Unlike some other authors that I read, she does not use a lot of minutia to clutter up the story. It is always quite straight forward.
Yes and the reason is, it is so detailed there are so many things you can miss the first time through.
In the Jack Ryan series I always likeJack Ryan, but I also liked Mr.Clark and Mr. Chavez. the parts they play are very intense.
Yes, Much the same. He is a very fitting narrator for the Jack Ryan series.
When the helicopter landed on the small boat out in the middle of the ocean during the hurricane to bring the surviving men to safety.
I always enjoy the Tom Clancy books and especially the Jack Ryan series. I just really enjoy his personality.
Yes I would. I would only recommend this book as part of a great trilogy. One really needs to read the first two books in the series before reading this one. This book was a perfect ending to one of Nora Roberts most enjoyable trilogy's.
The ending. I thought I had predicted the ending and then she threw me a curve, but came together in the end for a perfect love story.
Murphy. In the first book,
Pretty much. If I had time I would have, but I would have to put it down at times.
I am enthralled by the way Jo Nesbo unreels a story from start to finish with barely a hint of
Yes of course. All of the books in this series do that, by winding back and forth and up and down. You have to stay on your toes to keep up.
No and actually I prefer Robin Sachs to do the performance for the Harry Hole series. Thor was ok, but Robin Sachs really brings it to life.
Neither- It is a book that just leaves you wanting more.
For some reason I cannot find a book 6 in this series. It skips right from Book 5 to Book 7 & 8. Is there a book 6 that may have been written by someone else or am I just overlooking something?
the way the little boy would come up with different things he remembered at different times about his Heaven experience.
Nothing. He was great. He had that Midwestern accent down pat~
Yes- It was a short read and you could easily listen to it in a sitting. Especially if you are traveling by car or plane.
The Audible edition is much more compelling and brings the story to life.
I have no knowledge base to compare it to. In some ways I would compare it to the trilogy of
He was able to impersonate the different characters vocally which is the key to a great performance audibly.
As it was over 40 hours long, that was an impossible feat. But it was a book I had to come back to every spare minute I had.
