I listen to a lot of audiobooks, and this is probably the best one I've ever listened to.
DOWN RIVER is a very compelling crime drama, with great writing, dialogue and character depth. A tightly paced thriller, but one that thoroughly explores tragic family and personal relationships. Like a Southern soap opera, but don't let that scare you. Superb narration by Scott Sowers, he does a great job with all the character voices.
Try this one, you won't regret it. I loved it, and thought it well worth the money.
I love Koontz, but this novel just isn't very good. The characters are not very well developed, and Koontz seems more interested in his mentally disturbed villains (over five of them!) than the main heroine Amy Redwing.
The plot moves way too slowly, with many pages where nothing happens. There are a lot of very disturbing scenes (people being murdered casually, children being killed and tortured).
The reader is decent, but can't save this material. I didn't find this a very pleasant listen, and don't recommend it.
This series of lectures is a great introduction to Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Professor Peters gives the historical origins of each religion, and explains how all three of them interrelate to one another. I found these lectures incredibly informative and entertaining.
This audiobook is a huge amount of fun. An exciting thriller, tightly written, with first-rate narration. Starts a little slow, but after the first hour there is hardly a boring moment. A very enjoyable thriller that I would recommend to anybody.
This was my first experience with David Weber, and I was very disappointed. The character development in this novel was minimal, and the narrative was filled with needless technical descriptions. There are so many different characters in this book (with similar sounding names) that it's easy to get confused. Overall, I found this novel remarkably dry and boring. The narrator does his best, but he can't save this book.
