I loved the authors wry sense of humor about the difficulties of taking on such an adventure and the preparations involved with doing so.
Had me smiling and recalling similar experiences on one of many of my own hikes.
made me laugh a lot.
This trilogy is interesting and has a bit more character development than the hunger games. But at the end of the day, the delivery and narration is very juvenile in some parts of the book and I had trouble getting through it. I think this is a book I would rather read and invent the voices and tones of the characters in my head than actually listen to the teenage inflections. Story is great, though quite violent at times. I think I will read nr 3. on my kindle.
well written and well delivered. I enjoyed listening to this book and it held my interest as being suspenseful with good character development.
This was so interesting in the beginning chapters - then it got very elementary and fell apart. I admit I did not finish the book. After my interest had begun waning, I skipped ahead to each chapter ahead seeking improvement. I did not find it.
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.
started off kind of intriguing - then got slow and predictable..
I liked "The husband's secret" much better..
