This book was recommended by a friend. She reads, not listens. I listen to books. I love audio books. I am up to Chapter 13 and am so bored, that I am not going to continue. I can't pay attention while I am listening and my mind wanders. The narrator is not good at all. Her voice just irks me. I don't mean to be so harsh, but that's just how I feel about this book. I'm waiting for it to get better, and it just doesn't seem to be doing that for me. So I am putting it down for now.
Up the top of my favorite books
Yes. It just kept moving and I hated to put it down.
The end, when the main character became the hero.
Yes, but I prolonged it.
Maybe. If they like Danielle Steel
I'v read many books of Danielle Steel. I typically like them for light quick listening.
I think a woman should have been the narrator.
No, but I might rent it when it comes out on DVD
The book was okay. It was interesting, but too short. I think I more lean towards longer books.
Some action, I guess.
I don't know, but he was boring also.
It got good at the end. But the whole first part was just boring. And I love Nora Roberts books.
It was just a big disappointment.
The narrator sounded like he was on speed. Could he have talked any faster? Half the time I couldn't keep up. The story was boring. A typical romance novel. Drivel. Sorry.
I like Nora Roberts books thats why I picked this one. But I was totally disappointed in the narrator and the story line. I'm going to finish the book, but I won't get the rest of the series.
I really liked this book..As usual James Patterson knows how to keep your attention. I couldn't put this book down. Or, rather stop listening to it. It was a definite page turner. I wasn't crazy about the Narrator, though. Didn't like her accents or the way she narrated it, but nonetheless, it was a great listen. I highly recommend it.
My father was in the Coast Guard in WWII. I now understand why he always asked me "why are you buying a Japanese car?" I never realized what the POW's in Japan went through or what our servicemen in those days went through. I have a hightened respect for our military now and what war is really like. It was horrendous. For this man who survived all that he did is truly a miracle. Edward Herrmann is a fantastic narrator of this story. No one could have done it better than him. This was a great listen and I would highly recommend it.
I love John Grisham books, but this one was boring. I wasn't crazy about the narrator either (sorry, Scott). There seemed to be only a few parts, that had you in it's grip, but all in all it just did not do it for me. I will still listen to Grisham books and I have read or listened to mostly all of them, but my all time favorite was The Client.
I loved this book. Especially in Audio...The narrators were excellent. Their accents were spot on...Really made you feel like you were listening to their stories in person. The book was fabulous. It was heartwarming, funny and interesting to know what it was really like in the south (I'm from the North) in the 60's in the eyes of the characters. This is a must read. You won't be sorry.
At first when I heard the voice of Jack, I thought, "Oh No" I'm not going to be able to listen to this voice, but after a while and then throughout the book I liked Jack and thought he was cute and funny. I thought the other voices were horrible. But, I did enjoy the story. It was different from what I usually read or listen too and I wonder if it would have been different if I read it. I would recommend this book. It was seeing things through the eyes of a very smart 5 year old. Wasn't crazy about the ending. Would have liked to see how Jack made out in his life. Maybe there will be a sequel.
