So looking forward to this book...so disappointed. It just rambled on and on and on and on...could have been good if cut in half. Reader was terrible...too full of himself. Too much inflection...needs to let the reader have his own opinions.
It is beautifully read, but there does not seem to be a story. There were lots of beautiful descriptions, but it doesn't seem to go anywhere.
I find the narrator very irritating, and I just can't get into the story. I won't finish it.
I enjoyed Shutter Island so much. I love Dennis Lahane's writing. His prose is so beautiful, and he has such a dry sense of humor...but I don't want to read about the dark side of life. I read to be transformed to a place I would enjoy, or at least want to be or watch and understand...not to the dark side of racism and poverty. I have been very disappointed in the last two books of Dennis Lehane that I read, but I'll keep trying, and hope for the best.
I love the way James Patterson writes. I don't think I like the stories. The 'bad guys' are so very bad, and have a way of popping up over and over again. I don't need to read these stories, there are too many others out there. It's kind of a shame. The narrators were wonderful.
The performances were exceptional, and the story was lovely. I am looking forward to her next book.
I really enjoyed this book. The 'criminal mind' was very well developed, however, it did not seem very plausible. And at the end, the 'criminal' just fell apart...it did not add up.
I was a little overwhelmed as the book began, however, as the book unfolded, I found it deeply touching, and beautifully written. It was very powerful. And - of course - Frank Muller is a master storyteller.
This was a good story with some interesting twists. The narrator managed all of the characters beautifully. It was a bit predictable, but a really fun book.
I thought I would give it a try, but I just couldn't get into the story of Druids...and I did not finish the story. I enjoyed Luke Daniels' reading.
I expected much more. The characters are well designed, and it is nice to follow them through the series. However, the story got bogged down with - I'm not sure what. But at times I was just waiting for it to get going. Then the ending was extremely disappointing. It was just 'there'. Oh well, I will try again, I usually enjoy her work.
