Yeah...I'm having trouble with this and I think they simply missed the boat by having a man, an excellent narrator, read a woman's biography. The story is excellent and interesting. But be prepared for Helen Hayes with a very deep voice. As much as I was finding it interesting to listen to, I had to simply stop.
It's sort of creepy.
This is a great store and continuation from the first book.
However, having two Readers is not enhancing the story or
Both Readers are Marvelous.
But the Listener needs to 'keep track' of the characters through
the voices which, obviously, are not the same.
IF Ed read the Male parts solely and Heather the female parts solely
and one was the main narrator, I believe I would have enjoyed that better.
It's tough to rate their performance because each reader deserves a 5 star.
I was surprised that having so many narrators worked pretty well. When all the characters get together and all the narrators also, it will be interesting to 'hear' how they do.
My extreme reaction was: It's another 'World has ended" book. Nothing special. Not really an original story. Reminds me of "Lost".
I do not like the way they divided up the books and also saying "Season". These are books, not a tv show.
So it's on my "if nothing else comes up, i'll continue" list.
It's an experiment and I give it a solid 3.
Jennifer has a good range of voices. Although her 'enthusiasm' at key points is lacking she is still a very good Reader. I'm hoping that, in future books, she is able to emote the character's emotions better. But overall a good 4 out of 5.
This is an enjoyable book. Since it is 'tagged' as a prequel, I'll look forward to the rest of the series.
I think those who feel that getting to the core of your problem and exploring the reason for you behavior is not the way to solve the issue will love this.
Come on: I will Hypnotize you and all your problems will go away.
If you have a drinking issue then having someone just say soothing words
is not the solution. The solution is to discover why you have this issue.
My bad for picking this up.
She did good. I like her performance and the way she narrates
Well she has Stress and other things here. This is for drinking less so stay on target.
It gives you a good feeling for a while but sooner or later you need help facing your issue. This ain't it.
Professor Steven Novella presents an entertaining and informative talk about our health. It is broken up into short chapters. Professor Steven Novella is a great speaker and has a good sense of humor. His medical knowledge and confident speaking style makes this an excellent audio book.
I found that the characters did not really live up to their background or expectations.
Everyone seem to be a 12-year-old adolescent.
Whether it was the performer, writer or director the entire story was mostly annoying.
I went through half of it and at the end all I could say was: wow what an annoying leading character this was.
I simply would not recommend this storyline or series.
Nope, he is completely off my reading list.
Not this guy's work: Yawn
Seth should really have hired a pro. He is monotonous. It's hard to concentrate and understand his passion for this topic because his voice has no personality.
About 4/5ths would be cut. He drones on about how his vision is good because its good.
He repeats the same message over and over. There are no practical examples but rather things analogous to "take the good road" and "This is good, the old is bad so follow the way". Some good advice, the 1/5th, but the rest just repeated dribble.
If you like books like "Chicken Soup for the Soul" then you will probably like this.
The Match is a fascinating history of an era in golf that is long gone. The author does a fine job at bringing it all back to life mixing the player's biographies with the game.The After Word is not really needed but interesting.The Appendix is really depressing and the final word leaves you on a down note.I wouldn't bother with it if I knew.One complaint is Audible.After a touching final word from the author there is literally no pause between the finalwords and "the end!".Come on, Guys. Give us a moment to reflect on the story before jumping in with the last word.Otherwise a fine book and history lesson. Who'd a Thunk that Bing Crosby ... well I've said enough. ;)
Have one author. Take the original story arc then go through it to a conclusion.
After a while, the same old 'poor fellow' concept gets tiring very quickly.
The original idea was very good. I wish the follow up stories took better advantage of it.
Good voices, characterizations, pace and style.
Why can't Men stop the falsetto when speaking as a woman?
All they need to is stop the vibrations in their voice box and speak a half octave higher.
His "girl voice" needs work.
Sure just like all the other depressing series we see on tv.
The story idea is very good.
However the story arc is then given to a number of authors who feel it is their job to show how horrible things can turn out.
Although entertaining, about half way through the 'book' you get the idea it's the same old same old.
The reader is very good.
But I won't bother with Wild Cards II nor any other in the series.
Just one original idea then a whole bunch of 'I'm so creative' writers who aren't.
This is all speculation not taking economics, politics, current sociology or true logics into account.The book violates dozens of fallacies and merrily proceeds to its conclusion.If you believe in the paranormal, then sure, enjoy the fantasy ride.But be aware that the monotone reader and real lack of true evidence will attempt to sway you to a fantasy world similar to those of spiritualism, belief in spectors and mystism.Just total crap.Save your credit or donate it to a worthy cause.Did i also mention boring? *yawn*
