Although I love to read books too, I think this book is more interesting as an audible. I love to listen and knit at the same time. From time to time I have to listen to a topic a second time because I do get "wrapped up" in my knitting! The narrator/author makes the subjects very interesting. And, as a bonus, the info is a great conversation starter. And, the info is fantastic trivia too! Can't wait to read about Einstein in the Kitchen!
Important info in an easy to understand format. I am a nurse and biologist and love how scientific info can be presented so understandably.
Not that kind of a book
Science and Math, etc. can be really fun
SMART - INTRIGUING - THOUGHT-PROVOKING
I have 'read' almost all of DeMille's books and have enjoyed each and every one. "Spencerville" is another great 'read.' Scott Brick does a wonderful job on the narration, which is so important to the story in audible content. Although it's not international intrigue, because I know so much about his characters, this book just picks up where others have left off (in terms of character studies). DeMille's characters are well-defined and interesting - as I know next to nothing about the world of international intrigue. These books take me away to strange, exciting and scary places!
OMG - so many memorable moments. For instance, when Keith arrives at the home of Annie's sister and Annie isn't there, the way he handles himself with respect to his emotions in light of so much disappointment is incredible. How he is able to have so much self-awareness as well as ability to 'read' others, instantaneously, is fantastic. He knows exactly how much to let people know about what he's thinking - never says too much - or too little.
His narrative skills MAKE the stories for me.
Nothing - and have 'heard' his reading on other books - he's a terrific narrator.
Not finished yet - can't wait to find out what happens - and then I also don't want the story to end!
What knowledge and experience Nelson DeMIlle has - about / in a world so foreign to that in which I live.
Shelter Mountain continues the story of a fictitious out of the way town in the giant redwood area of California. I'm enjoying the stories, the continuing characters and even Robyn Carr's making her characters moral examples for us all. Can't wait to start the third book.
I love to listen to audible books while I am on the treadmill and while I knit / crochet - totally enjoyable and lots of exercise and socks made!
The integrity of the characters, even including a man who "lives outside the law" but has scruples with regard to others in the stories.
She's an excellent narrator - even using some incorrect grammar that I believe would be used by some of the characters....
I'm such a fan of Jan Karon and John McDonnough's reading of the Mitford series. I was looking for another interesting series to start listening to and this novel fit the bill. The characters are interesting and the story thought-provoking. The performance by Therese Plummer is excellent - a female John McDonnough! I''ve already bought the second in the series and can't wait to settle down with my knitting and another tale of the fictional location of Virgin River.
I listened to the entire book of Virgin River in two days!
Even makes Queen Elizabeth seem more human. What a fun concept. A Royal spy and mystery solver!
