I loved the first Schmidt book (About Schmidt) and would strongly suggest that this one get listened to first. Both are very compelling and, as an old man with a somewhat jaded past, I identified with Schmidt in many ways. George Guidall is the most masterful reader and interpreter of these audiobooks in the business today. When I choose a book, I will always buy it if George is the reader.
Schmidt, of course. I am him in many ways; there were some life lessons for me in this book.
Many...this was among the best. The Dark Tower books were stupendous and all of the Vince Flynn books that he has read and truly amazing and involving. I love this guy!
No way to do that.
Keepem' coming, Begley.
Not written it.
I've not listened to anything else from him; that said, the read was very good...not George Guidell good, but good.
This was probably the most tear jerking, depressing book I have read/listened to in many years. I'm glad it's over.
This ranks in the middle 50%. I went on forever with drawn out sub plots. I identified with the main character and that made it painful. I'll try another Franzen book and see f I can get through it without getting frustrated.
That George Guidall was the reader.
You know, that's a hard one for me to answer. EVERYTHING that George Guidall reads comes to life. It's quite amazing. The way that he can truly separate one character from another; the way that he does wormen just makes him the very best in this art form..I have reached a point in my audio book listening experience that has me looking for books that he has read, no matter that I have no idea about the author or plot. I felt the same way about Muller and sorry that he has passed and there will be no more.
Al's infirmity got to me. I'm his age.
Keep 'em coming.
Hard question...I've read/listened to many many books. For Nelson DeMille, on a scale of 100, which would be "The Lion's Game", I would give it 85.
Don't remember right now
Hummm; I have a problem with Scott Brick; it's that he's not George Guidall.
Are you kidding?
I really like the earlier DeMille books, the NY settings the irritating detective. This one is somewhere in the melange. And, I am old and tend to live more in the "right here, right now" world of the memory impaired.
Anything be Elmore Leonard is recommended in this genre. Anything!
Stick in another book.
We need lower prices for these short books...how abou9t $1.00?
Yes. Elmore Leonard was born to write for the audio genre. All of his novels are amazingly entertaining and because they are all conversation-filled, audio playback, especially when read by the erstwhile Frank Muller (maybe the best that ever was) or Groege Guidall (alive and the best there is). I've read/listened to almost all of E. Leonard's works and long for more.
Any Elmore Leonard...Any!
Always makes me laugh.
I wish your service were cheaper; I go through these books very quickly. I listen in the car, the gym and when I'm home alone, cooking.
Glad that I finally got to Audible.com.
