started off kind of intriguing - then got slow and predictable..
I liked "The husband's secret" much better..
not your average WWII story - really enjoyed this perspective. good story with many elements. you will not be disappointed but don't expect sunshine & puppies. WWII reality prevails.
great story as always - Miss Christie is a gem. enjoyed the story, the narration - all aspects. good & entertaining read.
enjoyed the book - learned a lot. great narration and kept my interest. enjoyed the break from traditional subjects.
I found that Hunger Games and Divergent have a lot in common except that Hunger games can transcend generational interest much better. This story was meant for a more immature audience and devoted a lot of time to interactions particularly exchanges of insults and physical assault.
I grew weary of the teenage perspective and I lost interest.
narrator has a lot of bitchy sarcastic inflection - that grew tiresome too.
Unsure about this book - I had hopes for more of a broader story and less focus on a detailed account of a child's illness and ultimate brush with death. The fact that Dad is a minister and reads bible stores each night to his children does not convince the listener that his son is completely subjective and could never have imagines the things he encountered on his visit to "heaven". Dad spends a lot of time trying to prove that Colton could not have come up with these things on his own. I am here to tell you that small children have big ears and hear a lot of things from their parents that the parents never imagined them hearing or comprehending. Whether or not you believe the account of one little boy who said he went to heaven and back, it is clear that his parents believe him wholeheartedly and that is the crux of the book. There is little more to this story than that.
Good character development -- good story of these 2 women who find themselves drawn together unexpectedly.
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.
