I wish that I had not yet read this book.... so I could start it all over again.
This is quite possibly the best book I have ever read. I am so touched by the inspirational triumph in this book, the warmth and depth of the characters and the lessons that I have learned while reading it, that I have ordered more copies so my entire family can read it. I listened to the audio version and I found the book to be mesmerizing. A fantastic book!
The narrator(s)? did a great job. I feel badly that I liked the "wicked girls". It is scary how dumb choices by anyone, but especially children, can ruin their lives!! There was an odd clunking sound throughout the book and it became stuck a few times. Not sure what that was about. The story kept my interest even though I felt that the story dragged on a bit.
I am not sure that the message to this story is one I would like my teenage daughter to read. I didn't raise my kids to run from their problems... but that said, it was a great book. I loved it. I loved the narrator! I was sad to have it come to an end! Read it... but read it before you give it to your daughter and decide if you think it is the right lesson to teach!
I loved this book!! It was well written and well narrated. Wow! I think everyone should read this book. I have a interest in medical topics and especially the brain. Sure makes you grateful for a normal life!
This is a typical YA story... young girl does the right thing and gets herself into a better place. I enjoyed it though. The Narrator was fantastic and the story was very good! It was a light read... but worth the time. I would have liked the ending to be her big dream coming true, but it would have made the book that much more predictable. It was good!
I loved The Invention of Wings. I loved the Story, the characters and I loved the narrator. I was sorry it had to end and want to learn more! Don't miss this book!
I loved listening to this book. LOVED the voices and tone changes. The story was entertaining and I was sorry to have it come to an end. I thought the ending was a little weak though very credible. Enjoyable!
I enjoyed the experience... The narrator was fantastic and the story was entertaining and disturbing... Could anything worse happen? Typical Stephen King fashion (how can he think of these terrible things) but I loved it!!
It may seem like a simple life to live with so few people, alone on a island as a lighthouse keeper but their lives became so much more complicated, emotionally. I loved this book. The narrator was fantastic. It touched me deeply. I listened to the last three hours on a road trip and arrived at my destination completely drained. The Light Between the Oceans helps remind us that little decisions can have HUGE impacts on our lives and the lives of many others and that there really aren't many "little decisions". The more time that passes after I "closed the cover", the more I love it!
I don't generally like this genre, but I thought Killing Floor was a fantastic book. It caught my interest from the very beginning and I couldn't resist listening at every possible moment. The narrator did a great job. A GREAT BOOK!
I read the Golden Compass to our children when they were young. I loved the book. Now that our children has grown up and Harry Potter has come into our lives (which we also loved) I was hesitant to listen to The Golden Compass because I was afraid that I would be disappointed. This book DID NOT disappoint! It was AWESOME. The narrators were fantastic and the story was better than I remembered. Now I wonder if our kids were too young to have listened to this book too young.... oh well! They loved it then! They grew up ok! Don't miss this book!!!!!! It is truly awesome!
