It took me a while to "bond" with the characters, but it was worth it in the end. I'm looking forward to more stories about Tess.
The narrator was easy enough to listen to, but left me critiquing her reading in many places. I would not refuse to buy another book with Deborah Hazlett as the reader, but would be prepared to be slightly less than satisfied with her performance. Maybe I'm just spoiled by some of the really great readers with Audible.
All in all, it was a good listen. I would recommend this book to my friends.
There were some less than complimentary reviews, but I found this story fascinating. There were two stories interwoven, each quite interesting. One was about an actual orphan train child, now in her golden years. The other was about a troubled young woman who met the older lady through her sentence to perform community service. I liked everything about this book. Don't pass it up just because a few didn't like it so much.
This book had humor, and a good story about a boy with an unusual mind. Easy listening, and light enough to enjoy. I would recommend this book to most people who are interested in other humans. I may even listen to it again.
I didn't give this one 5 stars, not because the writing was flawed, but because it was just so intense and brutal in the descriptions of what happened to Jews and others in concentration camps and on the battlefield. It certainly is a book that will stay with me for awhile, but it's not a pleasant memory. War isn't pretty, but this was a little much for me.
This is a story about a group of patriots who want to protect the country. They see the murder of a government agent and the perpetrators. From this point on, the tension rises as the perpetrators hunt down the witnesses and pursue their conspiracy to murder the president.
I liked it, but didn't love it, not because of any fault in the writing, but it just wasn't the type of book I'm usually interested in. Maybe because of the situation our world is in today, and the fear that something like this could really happen.
The story was good and the narrator was genius. Loved every minute of listening to this haunting tale of a body found in an Irish bog and the search to learn who's body it was.
I was hooked when I listened to the sample. She wrote a searing letter about her husband, whom she had just learned was having an affair, in e-mail and hit "send to all." The fun starts there. There were sad moments, but for the most part this was about a woman who learned very quickly how to stand on her own two feet and go on. Really enjoyed it.
This is purely Adam Carolla; funny, bawdy, crass, but completely entertaining. I usually listen while driving, and had recently listened to several deep, serious books. This was a great break from serious. He is a little too crude for me in some places, but not so crude I couldn't enjoy it. Maybe a little more 'guy' humor than I usually appreciate, but I had enough laugh-out-loud moments to forgive the crude ones. I would recommend this book to most men and some women. I gave only 4 stars instead of 5 because of some of the potty humor.
I found this book faciniating. It is a report of the inner workings of the Vatican including the homesexual, child abuse, and financial problems the Church faces. The author neither praises nor condems the actions taking place in the hierarchy of the Vatican. The book is rich in the histrory of the Catholic Church and of recent popes. I learned a lot.
I appreciated that the author did not appear to have an "agenda" regarding the Vatican. The tone was neutral. I would recommend this book highly.
The first of Will Trent (Grant County), murder mysteries. A girl is brutally murdered and a 16 year old boy is convicted. After years in prison, he is paroled and moves back to his home town. Soon another young girl turns up dead, and John, the parolee, is suspected of causing the death. Much investigation and many twists and turns follow. This book keeps you in suspense and guessing until the end. Would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good murder mystery featuring a serial killer.
I love Karen Slaughter's writing, and this was no exception. When I read a review saying this was the 6th book featuring Will Trent, I immediately checked my library and found that I had most of the previous books. I ordered "Triptych" from Audible, as it was one I was missing. Ms. Slaughter knows how to keep the reader on the edge of their seat with books that are hard to put down. This was a really good story and the narrator did an excellent job. Would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense.
