I have no idea as I do not have the printed version.
Yes & No. I read & watch movies on a very high scale - so it takes a great deal for a plot to suprise me. I was not disappointed in anyway.
I don't give teasers or clues = sorry.
Again - a series I am pleased with to date, and purchasing the next in line!
As a solid coffee addict, it just doesn't taste any better!
I rate this in my top 10 of "just to relax & enjoy". Although it is not what I would personally call a "gripping" book, again it is a VERY great story that is told in a very clean & calm atmosphere with an easy to listen to narration. I listened to it twice in the first 3 weeks of purchase, and will return to listen yet again without a doubt, as with the other titles in this series.
This house is filled with movies & books - finding one that actually keeps us on the "edge" are very rare. I will say it was a very smooth written and not easily figured out by the end of each chapter.
I am very pleased with her work to date.
"Allergic to Falling Flakes" * due to the weather, the waterfall that is involved, what she was knitting at the time*
I am off to read the next in the series ! I need to soon begin searching for another series of books that will keep me going through the many nights of 3 am knitting as I try to fight the routines of chronic pain.
Absolutely. Because it is one of the best - well written - on the edge of your seat full of true human emotions books I have read in a very long time!
I do not often give 5 stars across the board - but in this case - author, narrator & story line have well earned it!
it is real, as though the story of a friend, not a written novel.
Everything. Listening to her is a joy. One thing I truly love - her voice is so calm & factual I have spent many nights listening to it through the bedroom while my 2 yr old grandson sleeps next to me. He finds her voice relaxing also apparently. Yet none of the mystery or urgency of the book is lost.
Again I laughed, cried, got angry, had tense moments. Once more the story was as real as life.
I am having trouble waiting for my next membership click to move on to book 3..........My budget says I must wait, but it is not an easy task!
As with the majority of any of Stephen's writings - each re-read is an experience.
Every time you listen you hear more than you did the last time.
Yes, and again they have done a fine job!
sorry, it would have to be Stephen.....
Not a fair question. In my library of Stephen King audio - in the top 10 - and we own MANY.
In overall audio, again, I would say close to the top 10.
The touch of story line that only Stephen can accomplish, you can walk down the hallway with the lights on and still not know where you are going.
When the reality of "what could be" truly hit home with ME.....
Anyone that does not take the time to enjoy this book as they have ( like so many I have met ) judged Stephen as Horror & SciFi only - will be missing one of the best books written in their lifetimes.
Where it poses lots of questions & "what if's" in a readers mind, it also answers a great deal of "what is", and that is why Stephen is such a master of written words.
He tells the truth in the reality of a human life, the real scary story!
A well written book that is believable becomes a great audio book when the narration is done by someone that truly feels the action. Davina Porter is EXCELLENT !
The story is done with a simple yet very involved outline, the small parts of daily life not skimmed over, but the days not written in a dense curtain that stops you from living the characters lives with them.
Claire has caught my attention the most to date, as she struggles with the emotions.
Her clarity in actually BEING the part, I found no fault in her reading at any angle.
( I listed to this book at roughly 3 hrs minimum up to 5 hrs or more daily for over 2 weeks. I backtrack and resume alot due to my little hectic part of the world, but I don't want to miss a word)
ABSOLUTELY ! But alas, I am a Wife, Mom, Granny & have a crew of dogs & cats & a cockatoo & turtle that rely on me...........
If I could of taken a week off - I would of done just that!
This book has already been added to my PERMANENT library here at home. I am purchasing the entire series, and most of all, I am telling all of my reading buddies about it.
It is books like this that make me super glad to be a part of Audible.com !
Just by luck, I found a review in a magazine after I had purchased it here - by the advert here on Audible~
I do NOT regret this purchase in ANY way!~
I refuse to write more on the actual writings as I do not want to leave any HINTS,
I laughed, I cried, I yelled in anger, I curled up tighter in my chair as I listened.
I smiled and was sad as the last words were spoken.
I would gladly of listened for another 19 hrs.
It is very pleasing, well written, romantic, funny, sexy, strong and full of craft.
I loved the accent, I have always been drawn to the Irish culture and this only served to make me want to travel more.
What a strong & intelligent woman - yet her heart as complex as any womans.
Great escape from a womans normal weekly grind, I will enjoy going back and listening again.
I really thought I had a winner UNTIL the "sexy" descriptions started that wanted to make me toss up my lunch, by the time the story turned the page to the "Native American" twist, so VERY clearly done in tunnel vision I turned my player off and will not finish it.
I have to wonder how it ever got published, sad. Very sad.
No, but I am not sure I will ever look at this author again.
Oh PLEASE - NO!
Think people! Writing should be done as people actually think and act in situations. If I want things to "heat up" in a love scene - I want it believable !
yes - if they did not own a dog..... I found the entire parts of the dogs involvement beyond disgusting. Especially for that noble breed.
Yes & No. It has some great fun, but again gets caught up in "mainstream" or rather what society expects today.
I would love to find a book again that is not only interesting, but leaves me on the edge of my seat until solved smoothly.
Nothing stands out - I am sorry.
Hmmmm. I found little truth about knitting - and that alone saddens me.
Glad I read it, not sure if I will listen to it again.
