I think it's just because I first started reading this author's books years ago, but I'm quite weary of the characters and the plots. I fortunately read "The Poet" and "Trunk Music", both of which I found wonderfully written and great fun to read. This book is probably enjoyable to those who haven't read any of these, but I'm just a bit weary of what sounds like the same plot twists carried out by the same characters. The narrator was great.
I really enjoyed the content of this book, but would have enjoyed it much better with different narration. It's not bad, it's just not right for this book.
Still the information is very good and illustrates the differing methods used in varying situations to effect change.
I debated about getting "The Host". I mean, it's 2 whole credits and what if? If you're in that position, don't hesitate, it's a great book. The narrator is fabulous, and the story is great. You'll love it.
I listen, spellbound and mesmerized, with a smile of delight plastered across my face. What fun this book is, aptly described by so many as magical, the characters bloomed to full life inside my head, and it felt as if it were a soothing and satisfying scratch to an itch at the very top of my brain. Don't do as I did, and hem and haw about whether you will like this, you will LOVE it, and your imagination will thank you.
I wasn't sure I would like this book, but I started listening and found myself hopelessly entwined in the characters and in the unfolding mystery. I enjoyed the narration; he was perfect for this book. It is something of a haunting book, leaving you to wonder about the nature of nature of human beings and their capabilities for evil.
