Good story, a touch of magic but not too much. It's rated R so kids should stay clear probably. It kept me listening without much of a break. That's a good book to me. Top 100
This book was definately worth the credit. It moved into the top 50 audible books that I have listened to. It's kind of a dark hillbilly tale, with folklore so it's probably not for everyone but you will find yourself pulling for both sides (good and evil) and when you finish you won't know exactly which side is which. I will give this book two thumbs up.
This book reminded me of several other books designed for the teen audience. It's an interesting and fresh concept but it could have been 20 hours shorter. It's worth the credit I suppose, just so you can say I did it, and you probably won't be sorry but it takes a real effort to stick with it. Again, it's a book designed for a young audience in my opinion.....not a great book by any means, but worth a credit I guess.
I assume there will be more books in this series, it's not a life changer but it is a very fun listen and I would recommend the series without any hesitation. Again its not a top 10 series of historical fiction but it is top 50.
This was a fun book, the writing was not great but because of the concept it was ok. But 1663 wasn't worth the purchase, he lost his way in that sequel and I would stop here at this book in the series. Should have a rating of 3.5.
If you are into alternative history novels, this is a good book for that niche. It was entertaining and unique, 4 stars is a fair rating but probably 3.75 would be more appropriate. You won't regret it if you buy it but don't think this is the book that will change your life.
I had never read or listened to this book. After reading East of Eden I thought now was the time to get this behind me. The book was not as good as E of E in my opinion, and the harmonica between the chapters made me cringe but it is a classic and I would recommend it. The ending was perhaps the best of all.
If you enjoy excellent written end of the world novels, this is not it. I would give this book a C at best. Sorry about that.
I have been wondering abot this book for a while now, but the title didn't attract my attention. I highly recommend this book, it is very entertaining and I highly recommend it. I litterally could not stop listening once I started it.
I do not like King's books but when I see the ratings sometimes I try it out. Yes, I have been disappointed....lord knows, but not this time. Ok it gets a bit far fetched, ok the whole thing is but it gets far fetched within being far fetched....yes that's right. I like it, I really liked it and would recommend it. It's a fun story, rated R though
