I love tales from lake woebegone, but this was terrible. I finished it because I had paid for it, but it was not the small town America that I was hoping to read about. It was about infidelity and destruction of the family. Terrible.
This is an awesome book! Definitely listen as the narrators accent helps the story take flight. I listened and read at the same time. Glad I did. It was one of those books you'll always remember fondly.
His accent helped me hear Pi. It was like listening to a friend tell me his story.
There is a film and I can't wait to see it now!
This book starts a bit slow. Stick with it. The info you learn about zoos in the beginning is important later on. Keep listening. You will be glad you listened to this amazing book.
This is one of the best audiobooks I've listened to. It is funny and touching and the different narrators for each character adds to each characters story.
I truly loved each character. They are like friends I'd love to know. Each character had their own voice, their own story, and their own charm.
I was reluctant to read this book. I thought it was going to be boring. But it was a bookclub book so I read it. I loved it. It was so charming. It was heart warming and sad and hilarious all at the same time. Give this book a chance. It will be well worth your time and money.
Holmes? Watson? How do you choose? They have a bromance that is so entertaining!
The narrator sounds just like I expect Watson to sound. He reads a bit slow, so I listened to it at 1.5 speed and it was perfect. Great narration brings the book to life.
No. It's a bit long and complicated, as are all Sherlock Holmes books. I listened to a chapter or two at a time.
If you are a fan of Doyle's irrepressible Holmes and Watson, you'll love this book. Hopkins captures Doyle's style exactly. This book was the first Holmes book sanctioned by the Doyle foundation since his death. It is easy to see why when you read it. It is exactly as Holmes/Watson were being penned by Doyle himself.
Please note: this is classically written Holmes. So it is a more intellectual listen. If you have never read Holmes, try a free version to see if you like the style. If you like that, you'll love this.
I fell in love with Logan...what a guy! Like all thee story Sparks books I read, listened to, or watched movies of, this is a love story. While the romance was fairly predictable, I enjoyed getting to watch Beth and Logan fall in love. I think most girls want a Logan to find them...a guy who listens and understands without being pushy or controlling.
Also like all of my Sparks experiences, this one has a sad twist ending. I have always complained that Mr. Sparks kills off a main character in every book. Well, he continues his streak, but as always, I was still shocked at exactly how the played out.
Good book, good narration. Worth your time and money.
I love Charlie! She is the kinda girl you'd love to spend time with...except for that whole dead reaper thing! She is sassy and sarcastic! She kept me laughing the whole time!
I have enjoyed everything I have heard read by Lorelei King! She is a great narrator! She embodies Charlie's spunk and charm!
Tina Fey is a comedic rock star! She is easy to listen to, like your spending time with a close friend, only funnier!
Another funny listen is Ellen's
This was my first Tina Fey book..I don't watch her shows, but have seen her on SNL and in movies. I wasn't a fan before...I am now!
I laughed and laughed. I'm sure people in the cars around me thought I was crazy, what with the way I was smiling and giggling as I commuted to and from work!
