My husband kept saying "I can't believe we are listening to this!' We cringed, shuddered and kept wondering how people can think this stuff up to write, YUCK!!! But, we were cracking up at the end.
I haven't read Crouch or Kilborn, love and know how sick and funny Konrath. If you don't mind listening about creeps, eating faces or pealing eyelids off of victims then help your self to this book.
My dad was in WW 2 and would NEVER talk about it, after listening to this book I know why. It is hard for me to wrap my brain around what took place. The numbers quoted in this book are staggering! The torture incomprehensible!
I keep thinking about the protesters complaining about the U.S. using water boarding!!
Andy, Laura, narrated by Grover and the style of the writing I kept wondering if William Landay is actually David Rosenfelt. I would have enjoyed this book a lot more if I didn't love the Andy Carpenter series so much. I felt the only things missing in this book was some humor and Tara.
The books are same old same old type of Andy Carpender story, love my dog, love my girlfriend and get an innocent guy off. Lots of humor, wit and fantastic read by Grover, yeah.
I have never been a Sci-Fi fan but I love J. A. Konrath's Jack Danial series so I thought I would give some of Konrath's other works a try. I was hooked on the first chapter! I was surprised the book has a lot of depth to it and I enjoyed getting to know the characters. Luke Daniels does a fantastic job narrating, especially on Bub!
If you don't know of Konrath, his books are not for the squeamish lots of gore for some people! I'm funny, I can read about gore but can't see it.
This book has to continue because I'm looking forward to # 2!!!!!
This has to be the funnest and grossest book in the series. I was howling when the rat ate McGlade's favorite chopped off finger (middle one of course)! Do not buy the series if you are looking for a good mystery or true to life story line. These books are full of silly puns, unbelievable stories and will make you laugh and grossed out at the same time.
Sample the narrators first,but I love the voices of Susie and Dick. I can't get enough of the series.
I bought the book because I like Robin Roberts but didn't read what the book was about. I assumed it was more to do with the kids growing up. I'm not religious so I had no interest in listening to hymns being sung. That being said I'm sure that is what got them through the times of segregation with such a possessive attitude.
It is a positive book so if you are of a religious faith and like listening to hymns this book is for you.
If you want a book that is not violent, not many curse words
(I think they say the F bomb once), sex, drugs, humor, or action this book is for you.
The story was good just not full of anything that would put me on the edge of my seat.
I have to say that I'm not keen on women narrators, sorry, a lot of women use funny voices for the man parts, (they seem to try to hard) but I think Deborah did a great job and did not grate on my nerves.
I was hoping for more to motivate me in the series, but I may try the second book in the series.
I couldn't stop listening! This book really helped me understand global economics. I enjoyed how the book broke down stocks, bonds, loans and helped my understand how so many people got sucked into the ride.
This book is well written, well narrated and SO not dry!
Even though this book is written well, I never developed a bond toward Merle or the writer. The book is full of basic information on dog behavior written about every day human and dog activities, nothing really exciting. For example it was obvious what Merle's reaction would be to the doggie door, dog house and the white German Shepard before the author got to that part of the story, very basic dog behavior. It bothered me that the writer would tell you exactly what was on Merle's mind and what Merle was saying. If you love, live and are observant of your dog's behavior you don't need to spend your time or money on this book.
The book seemed long to me but if you do not understand dog behavior I would recommend the book.
