This book is magnificent. It is well read and I didn't want to listen to the last bit because I didn't want it to end.
I bought this book on the strength of reviews and wasn't disappointed. An historical saga, set in the fictional town of Delano Georgia, that spans 50 years and the office of three police chiefs. Racial tension and hatred are part of the everyday life of the residents of Delano, and throw into the mix the underlying threat of a serial killer.
The narrator was excellent except for his attempt at an Irish accent.
I was hooked very early in the book and thoroughly enjoyed it.
An enjoyable story that could easily be made into a movie. It's a little corny at times but that does not bother me and does not detract from a good storyline. Well narrated.
I bought this book on sale and wasn't sure what I was getting into. I was surprised that I became so involved and put this down to the main character, Jack, who you cannot dislike. I was disappointed when it finished and definitely want to hear more about Jack. The narration was perfect.
Another good Lescoart book with Dismas Hardy at the helm. Abe Glintsky is now retired from the police force but joins Dismas in the investigation.
This is an easy and enjoyable read.
I really enjoyed this book. It doesn't have the detail of a Connie Willis book but is just as entertaining. The narrator did a good job. I really looking forward to Book 2.
The Lewis Man is the second book in a trilogy and is every bit as entertaining as the first. There is no real benefit to reading them in order except for a few details but I love to follow characters. Peter Forbes is wonderful. The Isle of Lewis is definitely on my travel wish list.
This book was disappointing on several levels. Firstly the narrator was woeful with female voices. They sounded like helpless little girls instead of strong powerful women. Secondly the time the main character spent musing over moral and lifestyle issues became boring. Don"t get me wrong I like my hero to have a conscience and a good dose of humanity but I think it"s time Nathan McBride retired and changed his lifestyle.
A beautiful story about the coming of age of 13 year old Frank Drum. Set in the 60's the book looks at one fateful summer in a small town in Minnesota - a summer that will see dramatic changes in the Drum family. The narrator was perfect and shows how important a factor this is between a great audio and a mediocre one.
This book was beautifully read and was an thoroughly enjoyable experience. The story is so well crafted between England, Malaya and Australia. It is dated in the way Aborigonals are refered to but paints a beautiful picture of outback Australia. The story of women captured in Malaya was inspiring and presented in a gentle and unassuming way.
It took me a while to get into this book and was confused by who was who for a while - probably my lack of concentration. Also I had to concerntrate for swaps in storyline in the middle of chapters but all that said by the end I was totally hooked. It was good to see a different take on the usual spy plot. Well read by Sean Barrett. Will definitely read this book again.
