There's a reason this book is a classic. It's one everyone should read or listen to.
The story idea was weak, but okay. The twist felt like an afterthought that had to be pieced into the already finished product.
The characters were unlikable. Most characters have at least one redeeming quality and those are the characters you're not supposed to like. I just couldn't care what happened to these people. When the time came for character transformations, they were so unrealistic and unsubstantial, I couldn't really be made to believe that the changes actually happened, let alone stuck long term.
This story and its characters were such a waste of time that when I woke up after nodding off halfway though, I didn't feel I missed enough substance during my three hour nap to warrant backtracking.
I was sorely tempted to return this book.
P.S. Dear author,
I've hardly ever heard the happy birthday song sung in any way OTHER than accapella so how is THAT supposed to be what's mournful about it?
Also, if your epilogue is needed to explain and tie together THAT much of your story, you need another rewrite before publishing.
I'll tell you what the summary fails to....all these stories are about cannibalism in some way. Not scary...disgusting. I'm trying out authors I've never listened to before and this one I will never listen to again. I gave these stories 4 hours and they NEVER got better. This was the worst book I've ever purchased. No more Jack Kilborn for me.
There is a lot of useful information in this book. I ended up buying the kindle edition as well.
Still an interesting enough story but my goodness, just how many prologues does one book need?
I enjoy these book and appreciate relearning all that I forgot. This book is similar to the other so be thoughtful in your purchase.
Full of helpful tips that she makes easy to remember. Would recommend to anyone wanting to brush up.
This is an inspiring book made even more inspiring by the fact that Stephen King took the time to narrate this himself.
This story is a classic that everyone should read or listen to. Anne Hathaway enhances the story with her pleasant voice.
This was my favorite children's book. I remember carrying my copy of it around until it fell to pieces. I think every little girl should have a chance to fall in love with Mary, Collin and Dicken.
