Silva-The captain is great as are the generals but this character seems to just hit home. He sometimes seems dumb but that is far from the reality. EVERYONE should sift the characters and be prepared for a wonder ride.
The narator is perfect and needs to stay on. I bet he wouldn't quit anyhow because he wants to turn each page and see what happens next.
If everyone on Audible could pick one book to start a series then volume one of 7 so far is the perfect place to start. I love Cussler and Lee Child but overall this is the best series. I can never turn the I-TOUCH off.
The original story line of Mark Watney, an astronaut being stranded on Mars after his crew left him for dead. When he wakes up from the incident, Mark has to figure out how he can survive.
So many scenes were done just so well but I like when he had an accident where the rover and trailer overturns and Mark overcomes a possible deadly situation.
Lost on Mars
Put this one in your library.
The possibility of poker action showing the game is of skill and not chance.
The relationship between Annie and our hero.
No, I have not had the pleasure.
I felt like I knew the ending long before it arrived. Even though that is how it turned out the book was enjoyable. The story keeps the listener interested and that is how it should be for a book to be a success.
I wrote the book Adjuster Stories which is on Audible. It is disappointing when you see how many of your books have sold and how few people take the time to submit a review. I am pleased to recommend the book and you should give it a listen.
Really captivating story
When all looked lost a mine saves the day
Can not accurately describe how good of a job he did bringing this one to life.
This was the first fictional book out of my last ten that I just had to stay with and listened to it over a day and a half. The characters were inter woven well. Other than the expected Tre bravery at a key moment, the author kept me wondering what would happen next. I liked the style of making each character become the lead player at a moment in time. Overall a audible purchase of this book will not make anyone thing they made a bad choice.
I have enjoyed their work together.
I just think there are better choices than this one
the entire series is just darn good. Every time I finish one the next book is eagerly awaited.
Marster's makes the stories go. The one book he missed was a real setback so hopefully he is able to do whatever follows.
Butcher has a way of introducing aspects in his characters that you might not see as likely as the story is in motion. Without giving too much away we seemed to have added a new knight who has come up through the ranks and grown more in each book.
It is a good combination and hopefully the next on gas more substance to it.
To muck of the female druid that was not as entertaining
I especially liked the banter back and forth between Atticus and his hound, It was funny
no movie for this version
It was an average book and there are for sure better woks on Audible to chose from.
The narrator is what kept me involved. I suspect that I might have taken a very long time to complete the reading of a print version. I did not feel the author broke any new ground and he just spent more time with shotguns blazing.
I have listened to hundreds of audio books. This one is in the top ten percent.
He reads the book at a fast pace which is exactly what is needed to keep the listener in all the way.
I personally like the style the author uses. He weaves off the point intentionally and then pops back in at exactly the right time. Great job.
His style is better that not quite a monotone. Had the book kept my interest my view of the narrator might have changed
I was disappointed in this effort by Turow. It almost seemed to me that a book was due where he could make a few bucks. I felt he got away from his base of having an attornet represent a client well.
I typically never listen to a book twice but this time I might make an exception. The length of this book ( every minute enjoyable ) is the only reason not to do it over.
This Stone Wall Jackson was clearly the greatest Civil War General. He made mistakes but all of the leaders did. Communications or the lack of them were often at fault. As a kid I read all of the Civil War stuff that I could get my hands on. Jackson's leadership abilities can not be understated. I was moved by the way the author portrayed Jackson's final days.
Cotter Smith was the perfect performer for this wonderful novel. Everyone should listen to this one. Why not get educated about Civil War history. Our kids know nothing about our past as the schools are failing to let all everywhere learn about America. You will be glad you listened to this book when it ends.
