Sumptuous detailed descriptions
Just love her voice
Lovely story, wonderful details of food, fabric, love and family
The reader was so wooden or stiff that I couldn't finish the book.
If this book wasn't part of a subscription I would return it.
Bellwether is an amusing book that is smart and informative and talkes about fads in business and life and how they effect us. It also shows how fads cause chaos or are a result of chaos. You will see many of the stupid fads she talks about at my workplace and other businesses today. I listened to this book almost the whole time with a smile on my face. As for Flip, I seem to run into a version of her all of the time. I gave this book 4 stars and the reader 5 stars. I love the reader's sophisticated snarkiness.
I started listening to the Anita Blake Series at book 9. I loved reader Cynthia Hollowy. She added a snarkiness and a little whinniness that gave her readings of Anita a lot of character. I give her readings 4 stars. Kimberly Alexis is a good reader but she is missing the extra bit that makes Anita real and spunky. She just sounds too strong. I give her readins 3 stars. I do really like the extra sound effects that have been added to the new books.
The Host was an excellent book. It was one of those that I couldn't stop listen to. The reader was excellent and the book kept me captivated
I had seen Wicked in LA and just loved it. I had hoped the book would give me more in depth info on the romance and friendship what was in the play. It did not. It is very dry and a lot longer than it needed to be. The story in the play has very little to do with what is in the book. This book is great for someone who discusses politics, religion and faith, relationships between family, friends and lovers, and being different. It also discusses what is evil (depends on who’s point of view) or what makes someone evil. If you do not have the same expectations I had, then you might enjoy this book. This book would be a good one for a book club discussion group.
