I waited months to get this audiobook as the 3rd volume in this triology of family, intermingled with unique historic events.
Awesome story - the characters come to life with this narrator. Bryce is not a predictable writer and there wasn't a moment in all 3 volumes (50 hours!) that wasn't engaging.
I can't believe the story has ended. I've downloaded all of his titles - can't wait for more.
Bravo Mr. Courtenay!
If you want a snoozer, this narration will fit the bill. Story may be interesting, but trying to stay awake listening is a challenge.
An incredible insight into a teens memory of a summer that changed lives. Could not put it down.
On a personal note, the dialogue about loss was very poignant and after 5 years since my child died, it gave me a perspective on my sad event. Perhaps I was ready to hear a different view of loss and death. But it helped.
Looking forward to another novel by this author.
I really tried to listen to this book, but the narration is very monotone & very hard to listen to.
Sorry, but add some inflection to your voice & the book may be a keeper.
Great story, interesting characters. Can this be the start of a series? JK is an incredible writer.
So much of this story has been told before in the Herman Wouk book. At every turn of history there is a character present to witness the event.
The accent of the Buffalo woman is NOT a New York City accent - a very grating rendition.
I bought 2 of these audiobooks, not going to buy the 3rd one. Sorry, author... but enough is enough.
I was excited to listen to this book, but it remains 1/2 finished. I find the heroine's abilities too much to be believed. Young, naive and inexperienced in the world, but able to deduce how all the sneaky political games are being played and be a key part of the legal team strategy. Really??
Good premise for a novel, but the female character ruins the storyline.
I was getting in a slump finding books that were addictive & unable to stop, but this book is incredible. The narration is excellent and the story just blows your mind. It is intriguing and mind-provoking.
A great cast of characters and a unique storyline. There was a lot of wry humor and it made the characters come alive.
Very intriguing storyline. The transitions between the characters were very easy to follow. I would make up my mind about the conclusion, then be jolted back to indecision in the next minute. Well done novel - worth every penny.
It took a while to get in sync with the past & present story line flipping back & forth but in the end, it was a predictable tale of obsessed love. The "suspense" was weak, the story dragged on too long while waiting for the "thrill" to arrive.
I wish Audible would allow long-term annual subscribers at least one "do-over" to be able to negate a purchase & find a new audiobook without using a credit. This one would surely qualify for a "do-over"
The narration of this book is done by a woman who reads way to fast & at a high pitch that is very annoying. After 30 minutes, I had to turn it off & take a break as the voice was too shrill & way to fast
