Damsel in distress and a gentleman in disguise. Known plot in a refreshingly new packaging. Enjoyable from the first minute to the very end. Good narration though a times I found it a bit too forced. Still, highly recommendable.
This novel its a highlight in its genre: Credible characters and for an erotic novel a fairly profound plot. And the two narrators did an excellent job!
The plot startet out well, the introduction of the characters was OK, but with the introduction of the "mysterious" woman the story lost itself. Somehow all the characters along with the plot didn't get any depth but rather got stuck. There is some "action" toward the end, however, it all seems very constructed. For me the book felt very long, I was happy when it ended.
Narration was OK but not outstanding.
I love reading romance novels as the plot is so simple that you can stop and pick up at any time again. And most of them manage to conjure a "feel good" feeling while reading them.
However, "Wallbanger" was a total disappointment to me. It lacked any plot and had no timing at all. I also didn't like that type of narration at all: exaggerated and hysterical
I was happy when the book finally ended.
Don't get me wrong: The narration was excellent in every sense.
It's the plot that deserves a slower pace: There are so many aspects of Harold's life, the past before his pilgrimage that tempted me pressing the pause-button more than once for thought. If I had read the book, I'd have for sure put it down and wander with thoughts and reflect on my and life in general constantly.
Highly recommendable for anyone who is ready to be taken on a pilgrimage in thought.
A predictable plot with likeable characters in the hands of an experienced author still makes 4 stars. Not my - personal - best in this genre, but still highly recommendable if you're looking for a couple of hours of easy listening.
No complaints on the narration either.
... yet still enjoyable. Wouldn't work as a stand alone novel, however, in combination with the other books it's OK. Easy listening and good narration.
In 1984 the novel might have been breathtaking, even a step ahead of time. 30 years later the book feels out of context. Gibson's style isn't unique anymore, parts of his story are reality and some ideas are simply outdated. This work has often been called the first cyberpunk novel. That might be, however, today remains a fairly meagre story only. And one that isn't an easy read.
I'd recommend it to everyone who does not go for the sparkling and futuristic sci-fi genre only but enjoys a detour to a more dark and critical style. From that point of view it's an addition but not a must-read.
The narration was a disappointment: Very slow and boring. Maybe on purpose but it didn't help the story at all.
Savor The Moment has likeable characters and a simple but entertaining plot. The narration was OK.
Similar to the first book, Bed Of Roses is not the best of its genre. It's pretty simple and predictable but it works as an easy listen while driving. Yet I could not connect to the main characters, Emma and Jack. Only one thing was better than Visions In White: The narration.
Sci-fi at its best: Fast paced plot, well-developed characters and an original universe though not too otherworldly. The book is so well received with good reason. Also, the narration is perfect.
