This is probably the stupidest book I've ever run into. Did a publisher actually pay money for it? I'm very sorry I did!
I am thoroughly enjoying this series. The characters are well developed; the plot seamless and the narration is flawless. What more could you ask?
I am overawed that anyone could endure what this man did. How could the body and the mind survive what he (and others) did?
A good enough story except for all all the stupid puns and word play.
He had a really good premise and some good platforms to build it on, he just failed to tell it well.
Not sure. His voice is pleasant enough but he over-did the mushiness of old age and dogginess.
The problem isn't with the scenes it's with the descriptions of the thought processes. But I would have cut "what is 'dog' backwards."
Too bad; it could have been so much better.
The story and pace were as good as I expected from Roberts. I have read several print books in this series and enjoyed every one. The only distraction was tne voice of the narrator.
By using a narrator with a better voice and one more intersted in the story than in projecting herself.
Well, I did finish it.
I wish I could say I would listen to more in this series, but I don't think I could take another minute with this narrator.
It was mercifully short and a pretty good way to spend a few hours while snowed in.
Yes! He is an extremely intelligent, witty person who has lived an interesting life.
This performance would have made a better video than an audio recording. Seeing the body language and facial expressions would have enhanced the experience.
Not intended as a book so this question does not apply directly. I do intend to read his memoirs, though.
If you aren't familiar with Dick Cavett become familiar with his work via video before you try this.
I only need two: page turner
Probably a Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child, in that the story is fast-paced, suspenceful, and character driven.
I love most of Dick Hill's performances, but he didn't do well with the female characters in this book. Maybe a little too whiney?
More rhat I just had to find out how it ended, rather than an emotional response.
This is the first time I met this author in any format. I will try him again.
Actually, the title says it all in a nutshell. I had never been introduced to Brett Battles or this series. The plot moved right along, the characters were well rounded persons, and the ending, while a little predictable, was well written. As always, Scott Brick was perfection. Some will say his voice is monotonous. I would say he reads without attempting to act it out with phony, irritating inflections.
I had read the initial day-of-the-week books in this series in hard copy many years ago. They are all gentle stories without being "Romance" novels. Since George Guidell is among my favorite five narrators I decided to give the audio version a try. I was not disappointed in either the novel or the reader.
I gave up Norah Roberts years ago thinking I was much to mature and sophisticated for "chic" books. Poppycock!
Thiis story is the most riviting, with characters you get to know and like (or dislike), with narration that's easy on the ear, than most I have listened to recently. I think I may have to try another soon.
If it weren't for the overly saccharine, wannabe actress, I might have given this mediocre book three stars, but with my teeth aching from listening to her, I just can't do it!
