the writing is good but the pc aspect is annoying
no because I am angry that the "gay" aspect is once again brought unecessarily into a story.
the first chapter
don't really have an answer for that.. for me NO.
why does Hollywood and now, writers, feel that it is their duty to consistently bring the gay agenda into stories where it really has no bearing. It is as if there is a mission to shove this down everyone's throats at any expense, even good writing. Where it matters and is actually part of the story - fine. But when peppered in just to push an agenda i find it distracting and a total turn off.
Good character development -- good story of these 2 women who find themselves drawn together unexpectedly.
started off kind of intriguing - then got slow and predictable..
I liked "The husband's secret" much better..
If you want to know more about the Lincoln assassination, this book will not disappoint. I really liked getting to know the historical characters on a personal level - it gives so much more to the reader. I think Mr O'Reilly could've given the narration to someone else, that said, he doesn't do a bad job - it just could be a little better. His narration does not detract from the story, but it does nothing to enhance it. Luckily, the story holds together quite well on its own.
Worth the read.
Mark Levin points out that there IS HOPE in the fight to hold onto to our inalienable rights as US Citizens. As a student, my civics class was extremely boring to me - but Mark Levin makes it interesting and the book left me in awe of the brilliance of our founding fathers.
Loved every minute - spellbinding and well written. I would like to read more by this author. The narrator was perfect. Really loved this book.
Told in her own voice, this is the inspiring story of Elizabeth Smart - her journey into terror at the hands of Brian David Mitchell and how she survived he and Barzee's terrible abuses. It answers many of the questions we all had as we followed this case via the media. What a strong, amazing woman and what an inspiration to all of us. Bless you Elizabeth - not only did you survive the horrors of 9 months of captivity and unspeakable abuse, you came out of it with amazing stamina and strength. You have my complete admiration and I am in awe of your sheer fortitude.
This story received good reviews - i lost interest after a bit - i think that the resaon is highly personal - it's just not a subject i was interested in, nor a time period and i dropped it.
i should have realized that i would find the story just as boring as i did in high school -- good performance - uninteresting (to me) story. ho hum.
Fantastic delivery by Kate Mulgrew! Really impressive - I didnt know she was such a good narrator!
no one who has heard the first three - all the voices changed - it's extremely distracting and unenjoyable.
i think i will opt to read a dance for dragons..
by constantly changing the voices from the 1st-3rd books of the series to the last 2 books. This is truly the worst of all.
I understand that the narrator is elderly and he did do a great job on the 1-3 books - but they should have given the task to someone who could be somewhat consistent for these last 2 books. even the pronunciation of the names changed. terriblydistracting.
