I love the China Bayles series, and I was really looking forward to listening to one of the books. How unfortunate that the narrator can't pronounce the names of Texas towns and the word pecan.
It's a good narrative of the issues of returning to one's roots and estranged family.
The narrator is mispronouncing the name of the original owners of the B and B. VERY irritating.
No, the narration is too frustrating.
If read by another narrator.
No. Already a prepper.
This narrator needs to take a breath every now and again. There's punctuation that gives CLUES to pauses. Comma = short pause. Period = long pause. Paragraph breaks are slightly longer. Breathe.
She missed the opportunity for drama by racing through the story.
This is another book that I put in my player to have ready at 3:00 AM when I'm having trouble getting back to sleep. It's rambling, disconnected, over written, under planned.
My mother had a stroke in 2004, and I never understood WHY she couldn't do some things and not others. This book is a blessing for caregivers.
Her very articulate telling of what it was like to have a stroke from personal experience. The detail is exquisite.
It helped me understand my mother's experience with a massive stroke.
I use this book to help me get to sleep. It's very disconnected.
I don't think I'll be trying another Maugham novel.
The narration is fine.
No, it doesn't need a follow-up. It needs a guide book.
It's so disappointing to use points and not like the book.
Well written, well developed characters, great story. You really feel the emotions of the characters, and the dilemmas of living during slavery, for BOTH blacks and whites.
If you've read Steven Covey's The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, you don't need this book.
This book has no redeeming qualities. It's poorly written and about low class behavior rather than the blurb info about the daring treks of truck drivers.
Save your money. I wish I had.
I've read allllll the early dragon novels. This just does NOT stand up. While I admire Todd for trying to carry on his mother's legacy, the magic just isn't there.
