This book is about a nurse who is a psychopath...I would expect the narrator to have taken the time-and the editor to have made certain of the medical terms and pronunciation. I would conservatively guess that the term "dig" as an abbreviation for the drug Digoxin was used more than 200 times in this book-the narrator, who was able to pronounce the full name of the drug mispronounced the abbreviation "dig" to sound like -to dig a hole, when in fact the first three letters of the name Digoxin when abbreviated sound JUST like the Drug name so should sound like "DIJ" -I wouldn't have made such a big deal of it except that the word is used SO frequently I started to struggle to even listen to the story...which is just an account of some horrible man killing people as a hobby and calling it nursing. I thought that I was going to learn something about what this person was thinking and all it is is the author retelling a news article and adding some "feelings" that he sort of assumed were there. Completely awful book-RETURN.
I am an avid reader, Audible addict-I have always LOVED reading, can't get my hands on enough reading material-I am always the last to see a movie based on a book because of how much I always feel they are missing or ruining...so when I say that I actually enjoyed the movie and gagged my way through this completely horrible book, please know that it is nearly sacrilegious. I will say that I actually did enjoy reading the Twilight series (hated the movies) and am a pretty open minded reader- This book is so poorly written, has such a stupid story line and is just plane bad...I watched the movie because I could not get through this book-and found the movie satisfying enough to go ahead a slog through the rest of the book thinking that maybe it would redeem itself because the movie did...WRONG!!!! Lesson learned-on to a different writer and series.
So many cliff hangers, I love this series from beginning to here, every character, and every step of the journey fills me with joy. I feel as though I know these people, I am invested in their lives and futures, which is something that Diana has a trademark on. What an amazing author! She literally dedicates herself to these books while she writes, and you can feel her devotion in every line. I can't get enough of this series and I can not wait until the next book!!!
I read this book so many times it fell apart! I purchased it on audio because the narrator is one of my favorites, and he delivers again- Frank Muller was a genius here! A gorgeous tale with the best characters delivered by a master-must have!
This series has blown up in a way that isn't surprising...the idea is sexy, and bright...the delivery of the story is extremely simple and remarkable only in that it could really have been brilliant if it had been written by someone with talent...Like Diana Gabaldon maybe? The narration by Becca Battoe might have been the worst mistake-she sounds like an idiot.. reading awful dialog. OK, so-the author is clearly a novice, and the book was written as fan mail for the Twilight series, and it follows so closely I am surprised that Stephanie Meyer doesn't get some kind of kick back for providing the entire sub plot... Again, I really like the basis of the story, I am really disappointed in the final product. This book is a prime example of what suckers the consumers are. This all was-and should have remained ONE novel, the fact that it was broken into three $30 books so that it could become 4 movies is one that Americans will (hopefully) get wise to, and stop feeding. NOT worth almost $100 - I mean "Holy Moses" folks!
This is such a lovely story, and the reading by Kate Rudd absolutely made this more wonderful than reading it alone. The main character is witty, endearing and moving. I really love it when medicine is portrayed well in books, and this author (though he gives the reader/listener a piece of his mind right away regarding facts and fiction) does a very nice job. I have listened to this book several times, and I get a little more enjoyment with every repeat.
Absolutely, this is a wonderful second book in the trilogy...though there are still some unanswered questions..
I love Alisha, but Michael is also one of my favorites. Lish is just amazing and strong. Michael is brilliant and sweet.
I enjoyed Sister Lacy in "The Passage" but, I like the portrayal of Lila in this book
Amy, I really would like to ask her all she knows and who all the people she was with after she left Walgast were. I'd also like to know more about April...
This book was a really wonderful read-listen- and I am excited for the next book, hoping it answers all of the questions I still have from the first book.
