I'm not a fantasy person and this book took me awhile to get into it. No, it is not real, but the story is captivating. The little foundling raised in an orphanage (It's my term, not theirs). What an adventure. I was very captivated and got the next 2 books. OK, I'm in love with the narrator, Humphrey Bower. He can make eating crackers sound exciting. You will not be disappointed.
A story of wanting approval, but not getting it. A family of riches, but only in the monetary sense. It's good writing with a great plot and leaves you with a sense of What the Heck?
What an inspiring story of friendship, trust, love and endurance. Let's hope that what we have in life with our friends endures the test of time with that same patience and acceptance. A great book! I will look for this author again.
Honestly, this is not even good writing. Adult contemporary - rubbish. Certainly not worth the money.
Couldn't stop listening. A story of generosity, selflessness, trust and betrayal. No one could have imagined it.
I thought this may be the last book. But, no. When is the next? Answered all my questions, met my expectations, except what happens next. Do I have to wait so long for the next book? What a great story on history, medicine, but not wondering on love.
Sad, Intriguing, hopeful. I loved the book. One of Jodi Picoult's better reads.
It's always exciting, always waiting for something to happen, always on the edge of your seat. Great Listen.
A story of more than one lady whose life wasn't the perfect dream. The main character Evelyn Dixon got the short end of the stick in her marriage, but it turned out to be one of the best things that could have happened. The other character, Abigail, will have you wondering what her story was and how a single thread would weave her into your heart.
I've done all of the Kent Chronicles. What I've learned is American history. Jon Jakes has an amazing knowledge of history. I listened and learned. However, the breasts, please, all the men notice the breasts. I say, "get over it". A question I'd like to ask is why is every main character a physical fighter. Regardless, it's a good series. Put your headphones on and do some housework or gardening. It's a great time filler.
What remarkable writing. Where does that come from? I couldn't sleep one night so I started listening to this book. Okay, then I really couldn't sleep! From the very beginning I was mesmerized, scared and intrigued by the story. The prime character Joona Linna is complex and at times endearing. The twists and turns throughout the story will keep you on your toes.
