It had a great story line, I felt like I was growing up with the main character.
Not in the typical Stephen King fashion. I was drawn in to the character's life, wanting to know what happened next.
Yes, although it started very slowly, once it gained speed it turned out to be a really good book.
I had already figured out it would end that way. It's kind of the standard with this type of book.
The story line. I read it years ago and enjoyed it and with the movie coming out, decided to listen to it before watching the movie. It's a great story with interesting characters.
Absolutely not. She speaks so softly that it's next to impossible to listen to the book in the shower (I have a shower speaker) or in my car. I don't have problems with any of the other performers I listen to, just this one. I understand she's trying to portray Rosemary and meek and timid but she could have projected more.
Other than Mia Farrow's performance and the occasional creepy music, I guess signaling the end of a chapter, it's a great book.
Filled with drama
No, but I will.
Stiger, because of the way his mental illness was portrayed. How he thought and how his story ended fit together perfectly.
It was a good book, action filled and packed with drama.
I've read two of Gregg Hurwitz's books and liked them very much so I didn't hesitate to snatch this one up. I just want him to get on with the story. Too much rambling, not enough action and I'm doubting I will ever finish listening to it.
With the other books being 9s, this would rate about a 4.
Yes, very slow.
No. I'm actually a little over 1/2 way through and will probably just give up.
This was one of my favorite books to listen to, the reader did a great job with voice change to match the scene.
This was a great book but parts were hard to listen to. It created the emotions that it intended to though and I guess that's the point. Without those unpleasant emotions, it wouldn't have been as good. There were parts that make me roll my eyes (at the characters antics) and parts that made me grip my steering wheel. I love when a storie is so well developed that it makes you actually feel sorry for the villains (at times). I was actually a little irritated with the ending ... until the actual ending, and my irritation, while not replaced with happiness, was at least calmed. Overall this is a really great book. One of the few I would actually listen to again.
I love this entire series!
Yes! It sucked me in and I had a hard time turning it off to get out of my car and go to work!
I tend to read too fast and miss some of the little nuances in a book. So when I can (driving, flying, waiting at appointments, etc.) I like to listen to a book I've already read, often discovering I missed something important my first time through!
Joe Mantegna did a FANTASTIC job reading this story and the drama in his voice added a lot (as opposed to when I read the hardback). He invoked strong emotion in me that the voice in my head when I'm reading a hardback didn't bring forth.
However, the music that was played at the ending to a chapter was horrible! A lot of the time it started too soon and drowned out Joe's voice and I think it lasted too long. It was a weird screeching noise that I didn't like at all. It's because of that I've started checking out reviews before purchasing to make 100% sure there is no music in any of the books I'm considering. It was just awful.
How the main character grew and hardened over time.
I loved the ending but hated it at the same time.
