Not depressed so not too keen on the blurb for the book..but the tunes are ok..sometimes too noisy..or maybe I am too used to smooth tones of others. I gave it 4 stars overall since I was happy with my self after a session. So, something must be working within the audio.
Cast of characters charming - found the story line believable and worth the listen too. Story had me on the edge of my seat at times - a good "read" from Nora Roberts.
Having worked within Hotel Industry since my teens, I figured this was a sure buy for memory lane. Some of the stories amusing - but - took me a long time to get thru the audio of the book - did not keep my attention as much as I thought it would. Yet, I found my self shaking my head at so many of the true things that happen in hotel world.
I keep stopping in to listen to "The Magic of Awareness" just to remind myself of what is at this moment is what I am aware of - I know sounds like I have no clue - but - the book makes me think - I like to think. Listen it to it to unwind from a stressful work day. I am not even sure if I understand it all ..but..like the subject.
I can picture Andy Rooney on 60 minutes as I listen to his meanderings of thought of so many topics - I laughed out loud during much of the listen - shed some tears too. I am so happy to have Sweet & Sour in my Library.
I love Robert B Parker's Spenser series - read all the books (yep the hard and soft copies). Have listened to the tape, the Mp3, and now the Ipad versions. Love the stories still and even more - A Catskill Eagle is one that was worth a "credit" to listen to all over again. I enjoy the dynamics between Spenser, Susan, and Hawke. As well as the interaction with characters that have weaved their way thru the pages in previous story lines. Good book. Great Characters. Mr Parker did a great job and the narration is pretty good too!
Read the whole series a few years back and Laughed so hard! Mystery wrapped with much family humor - Southern Charm! Listening to the story still sends me into chuckles and lots of laughter. Lighthearted mystery for an enjoyable listen!
Bought this as a CD many moons ago ..played it on a trip, passed it on to family and friends and the enjoyment was shared. May seem a bit disjointed at first - I had no clue that I would laugh out loud often as well as shed some tears. It is a good feel story. Blue bird of happiness has nothing on this Redbird!! (So now I bought it for Ipad to enjoy all over again!)
Found lots of laughter in this novel - good to have the group cast in the chapters. If you have no clue on my headline review - well, take a listen or pick up the book to read. It is amusing and I am not even thru the book yet. I am savouring many of the chapters while at work so have to stop back for a listen when home. I like this one ..Thanks!
Peter & Rina are back to the story line I enjoy - part family & part police stuff. Been lost in the narration during this week's night shift of work - loving every moment I can listen. Think my cubicle co-workers are amused at my verbal comments and physical cringes - too often I am the quiet one. Tonight (8/15), I get to savor the finale. THE BEAST reminds me of my excitement of reading THE RITUAL BATH so many moons ago.
The change of sounds sometimes distracts me from the hypnosis..either too many ..or too sharp..I do better with water and wind..might just have to play it more often to get comfortable with the audio.
