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.
i stuck it out till the end - and it was as I thought about 1/3 of the way through the book. it just seemed to fizzle. not her best.
After Cuckoo's calling I expected more -- or more of the same quality story. The story was complicated - delving into the world of writers and publishing houses -- the characters bizarre and none of them were endearing - except for Stryker maybe. I didn't care what happened to any of the others. He was the only hero.
I didn't care for this book - though I like JK Rowling immensely.
I do hope we hear more from Robert Galbraith - just didn't care for this one.
I thought this spy novel by Daniel Silva was good. The narrator was right on and there was good character development and historical action. Enjoyed.
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.
