The book is very evident. 2 hours into it you know everything that will happen. The plot is slow and long. Its not a book I would ever read again and wouldn't have missed it if I had never read it.
How did this idiotic book get such great reviews from others? Where they paid? I endured 8 chapters of utter nonsense and pathetic characters and after that broke. I skipped ahead to the middle of the book and started again and missed nothing. I didn't wonder what was going on because it was the same. The narrator was great, the story horrible. In short you have a group of military men who don't want to be where they are, try everything to get out of duty and one guy (the main character) who is a sniveling little coward who thinks everyone is out to get him and fakes illness all the time to get out of stuff. Others saw dark humor, so maybe I just didn't get it. For me I wanted the enemy to drop a bomb and kill everyone I hated the characters that badly and I wanted the book to end. Even with speeding and skipping the book was way too long. Don't waste your money or the credit as they're are so many books out there that are sssooooo much better than this piece of garbage.
I do not know how this book got the reviews it did. The narrator was absolutely horrible. The story wasn't much better. It was told by 4 women from personal point of view and not executed well. Basically its a self-righteous missionary man dragging his neglected wife and daughters who thinks very little of off to the Congo. Each women/girl tells what's going on with them and stuff from their personal point of view and it is boring and poorly executed. It's one of the few books I couldn't finish it was so bad.
Molly does a fantastic job of continuing a series without it becoming old or boring. The story was fun completely enjoyable.
This sequel was simply awesome! Great natation, great story, great characters. Highly recommend.
I really wanted to live this book, but I couldn't. It was superbly written but felt more like a shiny beatiful balloon that has a slow leek. One of the things that bothered me the most was the artistic liberties taken with facts about wolves. The performance for the most part was great. I think the story was a let down and not very believable for me.
Great story full of humor and fun quirky characters. Sex scenes weren't too explicit. Overall, loved the Book.
I have no idea how this book has the high ratings it does. It is absolutely the worst self help book I have ever come across. It's nauseating and reeks of infomercial snake oil scam. It is full of contradictions and nothing new. For example, it talks about finding your passion, which is a good thing. The issue is they claim to you can be passionate about anything if you learn more about it. They had the listener pick something they had no interest in and claimed if you knew more about it you would have more passion about it and that's what's needed. Interest and curiosity do not passion make. Most of the time while I listened to this book I wanted to track down the people who put it together and slap them repeatedly with a baseball bat. Don't waste the credit or the money because this book just sucks.
In the beginning the story was good and the characters were interesting. The author does a great job of creating and describing the period. However, about mid way I kept hoping some higher power would strike everyone down so the book would just end. It was laborious and dragged out far too long. I hate abridged novels, but this book really needs to become one. It is 30 hours long and could easily have been condensed down to 15-17 hours without losing a thing. The narrator was great. The characters get to the point of being unbelievable and I lost interest in caring about them. Just to get through the book I listened at a higher speed and frankly the book got painful after hour 17.
This was a good young adult novel. It was more unique than others. The writing was definitely young in style. The best thing about this book is its morals and how clean it was. It sets a great example for young adults in a romantic situation. I wouldn't waste a credit on it but a couple of bucks, sure.
Just Okay. Not really that insightful of book, at least for me. It seemed more like the author was talking about her own life.
