I liked it indeed, exceedingly.Jane Austen never fails me and neither did the narrator.
Thank you Audible.
Ulrike Nunn of Langenhan Park. Esquire
... nothing, I came to believe that this portraits the inside world of Diane Keaton accurately wich means I'm now not a fan anymore !
Where to start ?
I was convinced that the bad reviews just couldn't understand Diane Keaton...I would ! Now, I wished somebody would have said to her "Listen... " and maybe somebody had.It's a truly nauseating, namedropping, brand obsessed, lost touch if she ever had it, self-obsessed atrocity and the rare number of things worth hearing are so tainted by "it's all been said better before" and so trite that it would have been better to shut up all together.Quite shocking that publication... and boring, now that's an accomplishment !
Yes, I like the fabric of the story and how its always surprising and often funny with a twist.
How control is an illusion and shit just happens.
Big D's medical records.
It's a great novel. You can't put it down and it makes you laugh out loud at times when you were expecting to get choked up.
Yes, it's my favorite Kem Nunn novel. I guess...well, it changes every week ;)
Drew Harmon.. have a listen how Jim Beaver narrates this badass... damned the guy is good !!!
Ha! I just said it above, Drew Harmon... it sounds like sand in a coffee grinder when Jim Beaver narrates him.
I believe the book was optioned long ago and I believe the tag line was " Where Legends Die" which is also the name of the german translation, though I don't care for altering book titles in foreign countries.
I'm married to the guy who wrote it and I can tell you that a lot of things in that book are true and thoroughly researched.
Yes, you almost need two passes ... one for the story and one to wallow in Brian Cranston's utterly stunning artistry and humanity.
I wished I could tell him how much I admire him just for being good to that book.
Everything...and over time I might be able to think of more words and descriptions why this performance is so noble and beautiful without being pompous and annoying.
Its hard to choose but probably his childhood girlfriend who died of a brain tumor.
I understood things about "The Human Condition" that I thought I had nailed down and after the book it was clear that I knew nothing.Also, I cried so hard on an LA freeway in rush hour while listening to the book that I thought I have to pull over until I can drive again.
It's terribly close to a "Penny Novel" ...the ones you can buy at Gelson's in the Magazine Section. So...elderly, lonely ladies I guess.
Better research and much, much, much less repetitions and explanations about things he'd just clearly explained.
He has a nice voice.
The book starts out promising and completely deteriorates in the second half. Totally murky message too. Oh well... nice narration it was.
Yeah, I think I get his point... kind of. I don't think he knows what he wants to say either, he has a feeling and he's angry. Some people say he is a great force for good in this land and one should include him in ones studies alongside Hitchens and Dawkins ... they just often flatten him entirely in the writings ( Hitchens and Dawkins who are also the people he addresses directly in his writings ), in the logic and even in the narration.
That all being said, I can share that feeling he has that we might want to keep god in the picture as another word for compassion and the uniting spirit... see what I mean, I'm trying to narrow it down and it can't be narrowed down, it's quite a mess of a book.
Intellectually I can process that Hemingway was a good writer yet it all seems a little dated and boring to me ...though, it might just be the stilted narration by William Hurt that I didn't care for. He seems so vain that he has to chop up and almost mispronounce things to add his touch.
I like Graham Green. Knowing the guy struggled a lot with bipolar disorder explains the weirdness and sometimes repetitiveness of the book but I like him well enough.
Colin Firth... I wished he'd narrates everything LOL, he is just fantastic.
It's so good...and fun...and greatly narrated...and smartly, smartly written.
I thoroughly enjoyed it ! Good Job !
