Great narration by Colin Firth. He seemed to get the feel for this depressing diary.
The best way for me to review this book is by simply QUOTING, Elizabeth's review...
"There are books that make you feel inadequate, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, something. Something in you isn't able to see, even distantly, what what makes the book powerful to others. It makes me feel broken.
It made me feel like everyone else has deep, aching emotions that I lack. It made me wonder if I just didn't get it. Am I simply incomplete in some way that this book didn't make me feel anything?"
Soooo depressing. This book is following a women's diary and her questioning what is love, hate, love and hate of God, which she questions is there a God? Very deep self searching, which I just couldn't care less about!
Maybe I don't care, because I am happy with my life, who I am and my spiritual or more accurately my lack of spiritual beliefs.
A cute take on vampires, witches, and demons. Some are not as bad as we formerly thought.
Some unusual romance and family dynamics. (Can't we all just get along?)
The narrator does an excellent job of male and female voices, as well as accents. She makes it very easy to distinguish characters, just by her tones.
Be forewarned, this is a series and the end does leave you hanging and needing to listen to the next book to continue the story.
Kate Winslet did an excellent narration. But unfortunately I felt the story was drawn out. It started out interesting and I was drawn into the situation, but then on and on and on years go by with not much happening.
Teen vampire book. Vampires can live and get along with humans and there are even laws of behavior and rights of the vampires. Very cute short story.
Can you imagine a human chef trying to create recipes for vampires? Basic ingredient of course is blood. Then try to make that blood remind vampires of foods they ate as humans.
Somewhat depressing, but in the end some realizations.
Set a goal and trudge on for the reward at the end.
Don't let your relationships just go on without keeping it alive. One day you wake up and feel like strangers.
When you set the goal, remember it's your goal and not to be "shared" with others unless that was your original plan.
I think the book could have been much shorter, but overall, I liked the characters and how their lives were changed.
Very short murder mystery, but seemed to cover all that was needed without feeling deprived.
D.D. is a likeable character, but definitely reminds me of Rizzoli of Tess Gerritsen novels.
I enjoy historical novels. This did not disappoint, although was somewhat drawn out at times.
In 1699 a young woman is convicted of being a witch and destined to be burned at the stake.
A magistrate's assistant is determined to prove her innocence. But he is the ONLY one who believes in her innocence. Is she truly innocent or is his opinion skewed by her beauty.
A good story, but also very depressing.
Decent mystery investigating the murder of a judge. A little drawn out at times, but interesting to see all the different avenues taken to find who murdered the judge & why.
Probably more like a 3.5 rating. Narrator did an adequate job.
Murder mystery. Started out kind of slow and I almost gave up. But once I got into the characters and becoming really interested in who murdered the victim, then I really enjoyed the book. Quite a round about way of finding the "killer".
Gabra Zackman did an excellent job narrating, but couldn't save the storyline.
This is the last book of the Soulfinder Trilogy. I'm so disappointed. Not that the series is over, but that the book was a drag to get through. I rated Poison Study, Book 1 and Magic Study, Book 2, both 5 stars. I loved them!
Poison study caught my interest educating me to the world of a King's food taster.
Magic study, we have a vested interest in Yelena's character and wish her the best in her education, taming and skill of magic.
Fire Study, was all about fear, battle, enemies. I only finished it because of my love for the first two books.
Set in the 1920's when bobbed hair was coming into fashion and showing some leg was also starting to be accepted. A teenager with a talent for dance has an opportunity to go to NYC to attend a dance school and maybe be hired as part of the dance group. She is headstrong, conceited and a flirt. Her Mom hires a local woman to act as Chaperone.
The story evolves to reveal the private struggles of many characters. The book scans through about 50 years of time. Interesting story.
