I enjoyed this story enough to investigate the rest of the series. The English Upper Classes traveling in India is interesting. The murder mystery was good. I enjoyed it and did not guess the culprit like I often do.
I found this to be a good but not a great book for me.
The reader was adequate, but some of the voices were too over the top.
What was missing for me in this book was humor. That often makes a book special and rounds out the characters. I followed the story here but I did not care about the characters. The story did not evoke any strong emotion and I will forget it quickly but I did enjoy it and will probably try another of this series.
WHY would they hire a reader liike this and why would the Author allow It? I would buy every book in this series if it wasn't for the reader!!! So Dissapointed! The original reader, Christina Moore was great. Get her back and re-record these books and I will be the first in line to buy the series!
I liked the first book, even though the story had giant holes in it and it was light on details to make the story work. It was entertaining and I liked the characters. The story was a little silly. A highschool kid, being chased by the law is grabbed and made the leadrer of the world against evil space aliens. Yeah, that could happen. His powers were fun though.
This book continues with the evil aliens killing humans that had surrendered just because they did not like us and planning to annihilate Earth. They like to wipe out planets and kill everybody. It is part of thier culture. So with our fearless leader leading we beat the aliens with fanciful technology we got from other aliens they had killed.
Rather than destroy these evil guys we sit down to talk. Our fearless young hero's wife convinces the evil leader of the aliens that he was wrong and hated humans for no reason. He sees the error of his ways, So the wife Says" the aliens are our friends now so lets give them our technology!"
At this point I would have thrown a physical book across the room, but I really did not want to break my new Iphone.
I like Sci Fi and I have read Bad sci Fi before, but this should be in the childrens fairytale
"If we just talk to the evil people who want to kill us for fun, they will like us and we can all be friends " section. I am sorry I wasted credits on this series. Buyer beware!
But a compelling story. I cant tell you why I kept reading, it was gross and revolting but facinating. Read at your own risk! A Horror story with Giant radioactive bedbugs, Jihadists, prostitutes, and a vile hotel owner with a live website from cameras that show what goes on in the hotel.
Only one likable character. Discusting.
I loved the beginning of this book and wish it had stayed with those characters. The story is sci-fi but that is peripheral because with this story, because it wasn't nessesary for the story to be in space. Two opratives are chasing an assasin,that one of them knows but they never see and they keep missig him and I got bored and quit in the middle of the book. Maybe it gets better. It might. I had better books to read.
The narator was ok, the story was ok. I won't bother to get the rest of the series. Too many holes in the narative, and te characters don't resonate with me. I am a big fan of sci fi books with battles. just not this one.
Three stars is my code for not sorry I read it but won't read it again or look for more books by the author.
This classic haunted house book stands the test of time. the characters are engaging and the house is sinister. I have to admit I would love to visit it. The housekeeper is suitablely deadpan and strange. " there is no one to come if you call in the night after dark.''
Visit Hill House and get the shivers again. "Whatever walks there walks alone!"
This book is set later in time then most of Zane Grey's books. There are automobiles.
My biggest probem with tihis book is the main female characters, both of whom are fooled by men and don't learn from thier mistakes at all. I wish women weren't really that gulable but I know we are often blinded by our own emotional needs ansee what we want to see in men to our eternal sorrow, but one character here takes being a fool to a level of high art.
I don't recommend wasting a credit on this one.
My personal rating system is 3 stars if I like the book but have no need to ever read it again, 4 stars for good and re-readable, 5 stars for favorite stories with great narators.
I enjoyed this book and look forward to the movie but I will never want to read it again.
It was fun to read about the food and the journey of a talented chef, in a strange country.
It is a heartwarming book and I recommend it , though it is not my usual cup of tea.
If you like plenty of Raunchy sex, stupid repetitive jokes and constant bad language in normal conversation this is for you. It is NOT for me. The reader is annoying so that did not help. Skip this one. I couldn't finish it.
OK, Beautiful girl who doesn't think she's beautiful, though almost every man she meets hits on her, meets gorgeous man with scar who thinks he's ugly. Of course it's lust at first site. She's a medium and he's a bootegger cursed into seeing ghosts fom his past. That is the interesting part of the story. If you've read romances before, you know the romance part of the story. No suprises there. The writing is good, and the story is entertaining.
The sex parts weren't as bad as many I've read. Though I enjoy romance, I don't really like much sex in books, and please skip the thrust by thrust details! Leave it to the imagination. Not too bad, but not one I will read again.
