Great story, great characters, important themes. Very well presented.
Ray Porter does a great job portraying the various characters, including women.
This is a beautiful, lyrical story read with great skill. It is one of my favorite audio books of all time.
This is my second Maisie book. . .I am finding the stories to be quite interesting until things fall just too neatly into place, as in the first one I read.
The narrator detracts from the story. Sometimes she is overly melodramatic, and she also has a lisp that breaks through every few minutes, very annoying.
This book is told in the voices of young females. The narrator sounds like Alvin the Chipmunk. I had to quit listening, and when the voice leaves my head, I will try to read it. Right now it seems a little thin.
And I am so glad I did. What a wonderful book this is. Heartbreaking, funny, understated and yet a little fantastic.
Epic story, elegant writing, I cried. I had a hard time getting into the narration at first--his style is kind of flat, but by the end of the book I thought of it as being neutral.
Excellent performance, fun storylines.
I haven't listened to any books by Gabaldon before, but the reviews intrigued me.
I thought Porter's performance was right on. Her accents and characterizations (including male voices) were excellent.
Not really, it is fun as a series of stories.
I was surprised to enjoy a combination of a genre (Romance) and theme (time-traveling) that I usually avoid.
I would NOT try another Gillian Flynn book. The performances are just fine!
Gone Girl is another in a long line of completely improbable books about "brilliant sociopaths."
I actually hung in with the story for the first half of the book, thinking it might go in a direction I could appreciate or believe.
