I cannot stand to listen to another minute of this book. The narrator does a fine job with the voices, but the story itself is bad. I thought I would love it, being somewhat of a classic, but it's just awful. He just tries to top himself at every turn to make it more disgusting. That's when I can even follow along. It puts me in mind of Faulkner's stream- of- thought style of writing. I wish I hadn't wasted my money and I am very disappointed as Burroughs is such a renowned author.
I was so happy to learn that this book was a series. I loved the book and the narrator. There are parts that I wasn't super happy with but in general I loved it.
This book was so good. I haven't got the words to say how good. I read her other book "gone girl " first and was sure there was no topping it, but I was wrong! Two other coworkers and I listened to it together, and it made every surprising turn that much more fun. We all loved it. The reader is top of the line. Probably best I have heard yet.
I absolutely loved this story; it was performed perfectly and I thoroghly enjoyed the story itself. There's plenty of adventure that gets your blood moving because you're so engrossed in the story, but then the romance makes you ache for the characters. All I can say is perfect from beginning to end.
I think the thought behind this book was unbelievable. The story itself is amazing and captures this amazing world that you can't help but wish you were even a small part of. It's so odd how the entire story is in black and white but the visions portrayed are anything but drab. It sounds so beautiful and colorful. I think I would have been happy with a little more character development, but overall I did love the book.
I wish I had read the other reviews before I bought this. It's awful. I can't even finish it and I ALWAYS finish any book I've started. It just makes no sense; it's very difficult to follow along.
For the first hour maybe, I was bored to tears , but it's a very long audiobook and after that hour, it unfolds into a great story, with twists and great characters. It gets a little hokey at times with the romance, which I suppose can be a little refreshing. All in all, I loved this book and am impatiently waiting for number 2.
