I read this when it came out decades ago and remembered it was ok, but listening to it now was even better. I'm not a great sci-fi fan, but the story is ripe with adventure and swashbuckling style. Enjoyable. Presented with music and effects.. which made it more interesting for me.
Really wanted to love this book.. and I kept waiting, but it never developed to me. Nicely written, and you really get to know the main character, but I kept thinking, "so what?" I expected more.
Beautifully written and very touching, this story was captivating to me. Altho some have complained about the complex number of characters and plot jumps - that didn't bother me at all. Just hang on and go with it.. it all made perfect sense to me. Highly recommended. Probably will read this one again sometime.
I love long reads, history, people, and learning - this book was all of those things. Wonderful complex story woven through historical events. Bramhall is brilliant and captures each character perfectly. I was absorbed completely and missed it when the book was finished. Bravo.
Larsson's second book was even more thrilling than the first. We're getting to know more about the brilliant Lisbeth. Vance is again wonderful and captures the essence of each character. Highly recommended.. but best to read Dragon Tatoo first.
A romantic and touching tale.. good characters I could relate to about a time and place I didn't know much about. Beautifully told in letter format, I enjoyed this book completely.
I loved the characters, and the story was well told in an interesting changing voice and point of view format. The deeply-woven fabric of inter-racial relationships ring true.. I grew up in the south in the 50s and 60s and Stockett was right on the mark. These women of every sort will charm you.
Great characters and an interesting story in this life of this extraordinary woman. Enjoyed the reader.. the accent was charming. My first Lee Smith book.. and I'll look for others. She's got the Southern thang just right.
This sweeping tale was so very enjoyable.. the characters came to life. Interesting interwoven story lines, funny and touching, with surprising twists. The reader is wonderful and expressive. Really enjoyed this book.
