definitely not anything by tim dorsey
all of them
i want the time wasted listening to this book back
i love the way neil gaiman reads his stories. i wish all authors would read their own stories. they emphasize all the right things and make the characters sound the way they did in their minds as they wrote. it all sounds and feels so right.
hmmmmm.......i'm such a fan, that's a tough question
lettie, of course, i want to know her story
keep reading neil
i couldn't finish this book
narrator added an urgency that was unbelievable, didn't use punctuation, and was too breathy.
narrator has a great voice but did not suit this story. his reading style was all wrong.
that's a tough call. i loved the book and like to get the audio version of stories that i'd like to read again. i think i'll go with the audio version because i get to hear the book in the tone intended by the author.
no fave. i just loved the reading
i downloaded a short story, that helped me to decide to go with the unabridged neverwhere.
not a particular moment
a very worthwhile read and a very worthwhile listen. neil gaiman is one of my favorite authors. i will listen to more of the books i've read.
a must "read"
i read this book, a couple of times, years ago. I like to listen to audio books that i've already loved in print. i pick up on nuances that i may have missed in print. with owen meany, i hadn't missed a thing. all of the minutiae that i enjoyed the first time(s) were there, it was a story being told to me by john wheelwright. i was as moved by the story this time as i was years ago.
john irving creates characters that i want to know. i want to meet them and commiserate. owen is my most favorite. i will probably listen to this again. i loved the narration of joe barrett and the voices he gave to the characters. it's difficult to imagine owen's voice when reading and his "owen voice" was spot on.
i just finished listening to the story and i miss it already.
I very much enjoyed the character he brought to the voices.
obviously owen. he's a powerful and moving character and will last through generations.
i'm still listening to this and loving it
i love the way Nick Podehl does the different characters
he brings the characters to life and makes a very believable david wong
so this is what they mean by "a rollicking good time" with some spiders and zombies
I will have to listen to this again once it's done
this is one of my favorite books and i was really enjoying the story as i drove until i realized that huge portions were missing. as a book, the story is so full of the magic and mystery of childhood with layer after layer of the story unfolding. as an audiobook, it was just a so-so story. richard thomas did a good job with what was available but don't waste your money on this, read the book, it is excellent, this just made me feel ripped off.
