This was a story which I knew the ending of because it is historical, but I appreciated the background information which showed a very ordinary fellow.
The scene of this future president of the United States having to sleep on the streets of New York. I said, "only in America."
I did want to listen to it all in one sitting, it was, however, written for children. Even though it was written for children, I kept listening,
definitely would listen again. I like to listen to hear anything I might have missed.
I think my favorite character was Beckett because he was so very understanding and patient and so very good with the kids and a gentleman.
I liked most of his voices, except the kids at times.
I liked this audio book because I lost my husband when I was very young and Clare aptly reminded me of the feelings I had. It was good to know I was not alone, even if it is fiction.
Yes, because I can have it read for extended periods of time rather than sitting down to read. The content was about the same. I like the unabridged much better in general.
I would say that her books are generally the same--love, sex, problem, problem solved, then marriage at the end. This one had a twist at the end, which kind of took my breath away.
Do not want to divulge because that might ruin it for others.
Romance in the wild.
I was thrown into the action.
His performance drew me into the story.
I did not want to listen to this book in one sitting, but I found myself wanting to hear what happened next.
for me it was better because I was being read to.
What I liked best about this story was the ending--it was not predictable.
I liked the reader because it drew me into the story.
When the protagonist found the missionary had died, I cried.
People who like trash novels. I am not saying that in a negative way, but the book didn't seem to have a plot or purpose to me.
No. Because I hae read several books in this genre, I am not turned off. I also have read and enjoyed other books by Nora Roberts, this one was not one of them.
It was good for creating pictures in your mind about what was going on with the protagonist.
The end with everything coming out all rosy.
Exciting, mysterious, mind boggling.
I liked the changes of scenery painted by the reader. It went from a hot night club encounter to a steamy event at the lake house to a chase. It didn't stop there. The entire book kept changing like this keeping you wanting to hear more and more.
The excitement in her voice, the compassion she seem to show, the desperation she displayed at points.
It made me want to stop driving so that I could finish listening to it, but it was too long. I sat in m garage several times, and did uneccesary driving at other times so I could hear more and more.
Although I know it makes the story, I found the language a little raunchy. I would try to tone it down a little, but I think that might take away from the story. Guess I am caught in a quandry.
For me, the Pimp's first trip to jail was memorable because I put myself in his mother's place and could feel her pain.
Added to the story because of the inflections and change of dpeed when he was attempting to make the picture more vivid.
I could see this being made into a movie, but only if the Reynolds brothers produced it. I feel that Spike would try to make it a historical piece and Tyler would attempt to make it funny. It is historical, but I don't think Spike would be able to allow the use of the language which was used in the book. Without a doubt Edris Elba should be the Pimp.
I felt as though I was going through the experience with the protagonist.
I felt very anxious as the story developed.
The turn around.
