if I missed something. In reading the reviews I thought this would be a great read but I have to admit I wasn't that blown away. I guess I thought the World's Fair and suspense aspect would be given equal time but found the details on creating the "white city" too much and the suspense too little. A fair read is all I can give it but this is not one that I would recommend to others or read again.
I enjoyed the book a great deal but agree that at times it was a bit drawn out and the ending was abrupt especially after 21+ hours of listening. That said, the story was interesting and the narration was extremely well done. All-in-all it is certainly worth listening to.
I really enjoyed this book - so much so that I bought the paperback as a gift. I can honestly say the book has been thoroughly enjoyed by all who have since read it. An unexpected pleasure and certainly worth a listen!
I must admit that when I first started listening to this selection I thought there was no way I would get through it. A slow starter to say the least and difficult for me to get in to. But not wanting to give up too quickly I stuck with it and soon found myself sitting in the car just to hear what was next. The book is long - especially as a commuter book - but was captivating and so well read that it was definately worth the download and listen.
Having never read a Mark Twain book I must admit to starting out a little skeptical. It didn't take long to realize how enjoyable the book was going to be. The narration was wonderful. The story was interesting, fun and funny. All-in-all just good entertainment.
This was a well read mystery that held my attention so that at times I didn't want to shut it off. The narration is excellent and the characters so believable that at times I laughed out loud at the their antics while trying to solve the mystery. It's not overly complicated and a relatively short book but certainly worth a listen.
