Im a big fan of Courtenay and Bower together, but the female reader, Melissa Eccleston, with the phony yiddish/jewish/german accent was annoying. I dont know who would enjoy it, my jewish grandmother???
the female reader, Melissa Eccleston, used a thick, phony yiddish/jewish/german accent was annoying. It made the story difficult to follow.
Anger- That I wasted a credit to purchase this book!
I dont know a better story??? I tried 4 times to read this book and just cant get into it!
no. Im not a big horror/sifi fan but I let each book stand by itself
I think he did a good job
Disappointment that I wasted a credit!
Everything...plot boring and undeveloped, characters weak. Im going back to Larry McMurtry. The king of the western novel!
Dont waste $ or credits
Sadly Important Story
Just overall being allowed to share this painful experience with my favorite author.
A real 5 hanky book!
I dont normally read or listen to the sci fi/ horror type novels, but the reviews caught my interest and Im glad that they did. I really enjoyed this creepy novel and already bought the sequel to listen to next.
Not for the faint of heart! Bryce was able to weave together 2 of societies ills, the child pornography trade and alcoholism into a story that made me wince and cry and smile.
This story really helped me understand the program that AA offers and how it helps those that are addicted.
Humphrey Bower is my favorite narrator. His voice and characterizations are spot on! No one else can evoke such laughter and tears from me.
A tough subject to read about, as was his book, Jessica, but well worth your time.
Michael gave us a peek into the mind of the "male", a taste of nostalgia and more then a few laughs.
Always love it when the Author can read his own work..We get the insight from the writers personal voice inflection
Sure made me laugh! A lot!
Male or Female...a great read/listen.
The story line was really weak. The first book had good characters and a well developed story. This sequel just rambled and stumbled along playing off the original story and other books of this type.
No this book just turned me off!
I sure hope not, but considering the downward spiral of what is called "entertainment" today, who knows.
Don't waste your time, $$$, or points!!
Exciting storyline, well read
You can pick up any of Courtney's book series, like Persimmon Tree or Potato factory and you will be enthralled. He is my favorite story teller taking me to Australia, China or Japan, with vivid characters.
Humphry reads all of Courtney's books, he has the perfect ability to produce the accents for each character...you won't believe how great he is!
Bought and read the second book in this series right away!
I not only recommended this book, I bought copies for my friends! Eventhough I've been in sales for 20 years, Grant Cordone had a pocketful of gems and tools for me to use. Grant has that over aggressive, enthusiasm that initially turned me off, but the content keep me interested through the whole book. If you follow his lessons at the end of each chapter you will increase sales and motivate your team.
Enthusiatic, Motivational and sometimes overbearing. However he does a great job!
I now have a book of tools to use to increase sales for my little company. Like setting up a monthly newsletter to my clients, speaking at real estate offices, women's groups, etc., about landscape design and the value that a great garden adds to ones enjoyment of their property and rapid sales in the Real Estate arena.
This is one you will listen to over and over again,
