I loved the accent and felt drawn in
At first I was not a fan, but after 1 to 2 hours I couldn't wait to go for long walks and lose myself on this journey
I'm not a scientist, but enjoyed listening to what people thought about science of the earth years ago.
Robin was amazing. The voice for the grandmother was very difficult to understand at times, but she did breathe life into the characters.
Normally I have a hard time getting into a new book/narrator, so it wasn’t until the first hour or so that I really got pulled in. Then I couldn’t wait to get back to listening. I’ve never thought of a book as much as this one. In fact when it was over and I was trying to get used to another book/narrator I’ve actually begun this one again. At first it was hard to follow with all the jumping around in the past and present, but by the end of the book and everything fell into place. Awesome. Everything made sense. Every minor detail, every emotion, every conversation. Truly a great listen!!!
This is the first time listening to Robin and it will not be the last!
I don't have a teenager yet, but I hope I am teaching my toddler that he can talk to me about ANYTHING. This book allowed you to get in the mind of both mother, father and son. Knowing the repercussion of their actions. Understanding what they were thinking. Really great.
You won't be disappointed!
It wasn’t until this book did I realized how I don’t give the books I listen to 100% of my concentration. This book is like having my dad read it to me. None of the characters have a distinctive voice so I didn’t know who was talking. So I was confused at times with what was going on. However this was a bit silly for me so I didn’t feel the need to rewind.
I have other books in my library that were more entertaining
The narrator has a very nice voice, but it was the same. I guess those who hate off the wall character voices, this narrator is for you.
Maybe, not really into movies.
Surprised by all the great reviews. I just wasn't feeling this one.
I wouldn't know. I have kids so I can't remember the last time I was able to read something without being interrupted.
Wow, so many. I wouldn't want to ruin it for anyone.
They were both so good. I think because both narrators were probably the best I've heard. They breathed life into their characters. So amazing. Pauses at the right time. No silly voices for other characters. I can't tell you how enjoyable this book was.
Not heft. Maybe something along the line that life is hard, you will make stupid decisions, but that does not define you.
Yes, why did it end like that. I needed a few more chapters.
Humble hero conquers
Of course the main guy. He was surprised that he was internationally liked. Didn't ask or expect others to help. Such a positive book, unlike our negative world. Nice to know there are good people out there.
He really brought out the characters. And of course his accent.
Yes, I loved it. not many books leave you with warm fuzzies.
you will not be disappointed.
Yes, very entertaining. I wanted to keep listening.
I liked some of the things he learned about the house and property.
Of course everyone knows about the flies. Can't really understand why the family stayed so long. If this was me, just one event would be enough to take my children out of that situation.
I did some research about this house while listening. There was a terrible tragedy that happened in this house, and unfortunately this story may have switched the focus away from that fact. But still entertaining. I'll listen to this again.
Great idea, but took so long to get to the point. Also I didn’t feel anything for the characters. They would start fights when a sentence before they were getting along. Very odd. Plus some of their actions made them just not believable. I got to the end just so I’d know how it ended.
Didn’t I just answer that question?
All I can say is, thank goodness for the fast speed button! I listened to this at 1.5 and at times it was still too slow. There were times I thought I hit the pause button.
I shook my head a number of times at the stupid conversations and unbelievable actions. I love reading about different diseases, but this was really hard to get through.
Yes, the other two I listened to were awesome. She normally has great characters you come to love that have happy endings. She has such a way with words that you get so wrapped up in the stories.
Kate's characters typically have tragic stories, but there were glimmers of hope and happiness. Not this one. I couldn't finish this one.
I loved young Grace and the very vivid scenes of working in the manor and living during that era.
Probably not. It reminded me a lot of Downton Abby.
I'm not giving up on Kate. Maybe I need to take an anti-depressant to finish this one. Love Caroline and Kate together. Caroline may have a child-like voice, but I never get distracted by her narration. Other narrators have left me bored, tired, or en eye rolling queen.
I think Clive did a great job with the story. Pauses at the right time, no silly voices for characters. Love the accent.
I can't get the violent scenes from my mind to find one I would call my favorite.
There were so many times I was bored with the story. Then confused because he kept going back to past memories. I'm still not sure what the heck happened.
Being a mother of only 1 boy, I'm not sure what I would do in their situation.
I already have. I typically don’t like detective books, but this was really good. No problem keeping people straight and believable characters. Even though this book was written in 1997 I love to be reminded how our technology has changed so much. (The need for pay phones)
He did a good job. Nothing too outrageous. I liked how he talked into something to stimulate telephone conversations.
There was a moment I almost felt sorry for the pedophile. Almost.
I wanted a long book to keep me entertained for a while. This did the trick. I wanted to get to the end, but at the same time I was enjoying the journey.
This is the first book I actually bought (without a credit). I loved the first one so much. Not disappointed.
I'm having a very hard time finding another good zombie series or book. I loved WWZ. Warm bodies was a warm fuzzy zombie book. But since then... I guess I'll have to start listening to different thrillers.
He does a great job. Nice strong voice.
Yes, very action packed. Had a hard time stopping.
