How can you possibly beat a well-read autobiography about a musician when that artist performs the songs as she tells the story. Well-read, naturally beautifully performed.
When she described how she came up with her hit "At Seventeen."
Great accent. Nice voice. Big "s" issue. Every "s" was disturbing.
This was nothing more than a reading of the book. No acting. No attempts to develop character voices.
Not until it's re-recorded (if ever!) by Oliver Wyman.
He's a good reader but not as good as Oliver Wyman. Can't stand the accent he chose for Caleb, a poor Scottish Burr that make the Emperor sound unintelligent.
A Maz Zing!
Oh, no question: Faye! While Jake, Heinrich, Lance and all the rest are amazing, Faye is the star of the series. That little Okie girl can kick @$$ and take names. Actually, she doesn't bother with the names.
That's tough. Bronson Pinchot is really the best narrator for having different voices for each character. I'd have to go with Faye and the Iron Guard.
There were a few "whoops" as a few twists and turns arose but there was only one tear-jerk moment. I know you're going to have to lose somebody in a war but, sob, why couldn't (no spoiler here!) have had a happy ending?!?
My only regret is that the series had to end. It was exciting, thought-provoking and emotional. This was a satisfying conclusion and it certainly lived up to the rest of the series. I didn't want it to end.
I understand that Jacqueline Kennedy was fairly young and newly widowed when these tapes were made but, really, how snarky and nasty can even a 1950s high society wife be? This has significantly changed my opinion of Jacqueline Kennedy and not for the good. The historical background information and perspective, while clearly warped, is the only reason I continued after the first hour of the listening to her snarky, back-biting and mean-spirited comments about at least half of the people and situations.
I'm not sure whether or not Caroline Kennedy should be commended for allowing her mother's words been heard without editing, nasty comments and all. I'm not sure I would have wanted her memory sullied by her own words. It's sad.
I've enjoyed the rest of the series but I'm only at about 1 1/2 hours into it but had to come back to see the other reviews. Yep. It's just erotica. So far there's not much of a story. I think I'll skip to the next book and I will read the reviews before I buy anymore of the series.
Yes, but I'll read the reviews first.
She's great. Not sure how she could keep a straight face while doing the 'Dracula' voice.
Love the book, but this sounds like a copy, of a copy, of a copy....
