This book changed my life. Written perfectly and easy to follow. I knew it was a long book but I found myself listening to it almost three times in a row.
I bought this based on the reviews. Normally the reviews are spot on. I'm pretty easy to please as a reader, but this book was awful. Insanely slow, I mean very very slow. I gave it the college try and made it to about an hour left and just couldn't take it anymore. NOTHING was happening. Reminded me of the movie The Village. Just as boring.
Some action. Any action.
Brick did good.
Wanted to stab myself in the ears.
All of them. The narrator put a nice comical twist on some of their conversations.
He's one of the best.
Extremely predictable, thus no surprise at the end. The Stephen King review seems odd since this book had no suspense to it.
Listened to Sharp Objects last week and Dark Places this week. Both books discuss the killing of animals. This book is much better than Sharp Objects and I enjoyed it overall, I just don't think I'll continue with this author. Listening to animals being murdered in detail is not my idea of entertainment.
It was okay. Story was very boring in some areas so it took me a long time to finish this book.
The story line was a little blah although the listening some of the history was interesting.
Scott always does a good job.
I know King goes into character details. I'm use to that. What I'm not sue to is 30 hours of character details when NOTHING happens. 95% of this book is nothing but dribble on and on about the characters.
King is one of a kind. Not sure of others that would even come close. Some times that's a good thing, sometimes that's a bad (like in this case).
He wasn't bad at all.
Which of the 50 characters that he goes into excruciating detail? I couldn't even tell you. Couldn't keep them all straight.
I know people love this book, but I don't get it. I should have just rented the movie.
Although I thought Jake was a gigantic wussie sometimes, the book was fantastic. I'm usually hesitant about buying King books because he goes into so much detail (30 hours) but this book flew by.
Oswald and George Meet in building
Really spurs your imagination.
Normally like these types of stories, but just thought it was okay. Some parts were predictable, but some were interesting. The Oliver character was a gigantic wussy so he really annoyed me.
This was awesome. Seriously. Get this book, you will not be sorry. Very face paced. Time just flew by.
Seemed to take forever to get to the end then nothing happens. I found this book interesting from a historical perspective but other than that boring.
