The narration was enjoyable. The stories seemed better suited to children. All in all I am ambivalent about wheter the time I listened to the stories was well spent. For stories supposedly from African-Americans I didn't get the impression they were that authenic.
Not really. The stories were not compelling, in my view.
Excellent portrayal of dialects. Clear wording. He added a lot to the story experience.
One or two stories were very entertaining. I especially liked the story about two Johns. And the tale was less than 4 hours.
I can't answer that since I have not read the print series. But I would be surprised if the printed version was any better than this superb audio edition. Dotrice does a masterful job of presenting the various characters.
A Clash of Kings. Same author, many of the same characters. A continuation of a saga.
Without giving anything away for future readers, I would say it was the Red Wedding scene.
No way. Much too long for that. But I enjoyed it over a period of days.
Yes I would recommend "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" to a friend because it is a hilarious, imaginative and excellently narrated tale.
The Space Odyssee book about Hal the Computer. Hitchhiker reminded me of it with the Deep Thought computer.
His inflection, his slightly English-sounding voice and his spot-on delivery.
Arthur takes a trip in outer space.
The familiar characters, the humor, the story.
On the edge of my seat, not really. But it kept me wanting to hear more until the very end. After a few of the Stephanie Plum adventures you know what kind of mischief she gets into. The byplay with Bella and her spells was great! Stephanie's romp with Ranger is edgy.
She is a tremendous narrator who adds immeasureably to the story. Her renditions of Lula and Grandma are wonderful.
Bella's Evil eye.
As one can tell, I really liked this Audible selection.
The story presented a different twist to what one usually thinks of spoiled royalty. This is about a young woman of royal blood who is virtually penniless, but who has a sharp mind and a willingness to work. She ends up helping her clueless brother, who has an overbearing and stingy wife.
Sort of like one of the characters in
The main character.
Not really, but I listened to the entire book over a few days. It held my interest.
Absolutely not. In fact I am sorry I wasted my money on
The ridiculous premise that a foul-mouthed, Mafia hit man could become a doctor and then survive numerous attempts on his life for one. But most disapointing is that the author is overly enamoured with the vilest profanity. The entire story is liberally befouled with the f-word and other references to the female genitalia. If this was a movie, and I hope it never gets to that stage, it would be triple-X rated. I cannot recommend this to anyone.
As along as it is not a Josh Bazell offering of smut.
None that I heard.
The story involves a very different twist, a hit man who is set up for a murder he didn't do. As the title foretells, the hit man runs. Although the ending is fairly predictable, I still enjoyed this story and I do recommend it. The narrator does a good job, except his imitation of a busy phone signal is grating. All in all, well worth the price!
The unexpected twists.
When Dot and Keller captured Taggart and made him believe they killed his dog.
No, but it did keep me interested throughout.
Conspirata is a spellbinding story of Cicero and his triumphs and trials in ancient Rome as told by his slave (and chief recorder). The narration is superb. I highly recommend this audibook and only wish it had been written when I studied Latin many years ago.
