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.
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.
The last sentence surprised me as I never saw it coming.
In this book time sometimes jumped ahead which to me left small gaps. Overall the story was well constructed. I think it only fair to mention that I am a fan of Megan Kelly and bought the book because of her interview with her husband. It was a good choice.
I never re-listen to a book so the answer is No.
I expected all along that 8 would open his eyes again. I liked the way it was done
All of the narrators did their usual good job.
I thought Adam taking out his dad and then supporting the cast was written well.
I was not ready for the book to end and so I will be ready for the next installment. I hope it comes out sooner rather than later.
The story off learning how to win and then having each class of players believe in the coach and each other while almost never losing is in a fictional story something you would expect. In the real world for it to actually happen was really interesting.
Winning like 195 out of 196 sounds impossible but it happened. I am not amazed that since the 1994 season the coach has kept up the nearly impossible winning percentage.
It was steady and kept me involved. I was able to listen to the book in two days which meant his work kept my interest.
When the opposing coach had taken lead and was saying a prayer that his team would hold on. De la Salle started it's final drive and scored with 11 seconds left to beat him. After the game when he was asked what he was doing he said he was praying. He should have known not to say a prayer asking for the Catholic school to lose.
I would like a follow up book for the 10 seasons that have passed since the book ended.
How the two main characters made the story work.
I first listened to Mr. Bennington's work on Adjuster Stories and it was a very interesting to hear him make the insurance claim stories come to life. I then listened to Boating: A Life's Journey which kept my interest all the way. He has a great voice and knows how to make a book and the characters come to life. I am looking forward to his next release.
I expect this book has a companion one on the way to us and I will be able to spend a few more hours enjoying Joshua Bennington continuing the story.
I enjoyed the character banter and the diversity of what each of them represents. I believe this was the final one in the series but there are still lots of places to go should the author decide to let her readers continue to enjoy the characters.
No-Only because I never listen to a book twice.
I liked the stories flow and the crisp writing with snap back dialogue.
I have read two reviews that said the reader did not finish listening or did not care how this one ended. Frankly I wonder what kind of a fiction book could please those reviewers. This is a solidly written story and it was performed well. I will look forward to more from this author.
I think what made me like the book from the beginning was easily because of the other series books and the TV series making the characters be in focus.
The story never seemed to have a slow point so I just kept listening until the guy says " Audible hopes you enjoyed this program,"
The writing is good enough so the two of them seem to easily weave in and out of the story.
I liked the last chapter and the ending
