I thought the story was fun to listen to. The characters have depth. It seems like it's a pg-13 Game of Thrones knock off.
This is a fun romp if you like period pieces like Wooster an Jeeves. I had to get used to the accent, but then it was easy (and enjoyable). To follow
Interesting accent makes the story come alove
I like the book, but I cannot really complete it, since it requires me to read long lists. Not having the book in front me is rather frustrating, since I would like to finish it.
I liked the book, partly because it tweaks on a feeling I have been having for a while. It's a little shrill, but thought provoking.
I liked the book. I got it on a whim and had fun listening to it. (Weirdly, it seemed to want to end in a hurry with a "happily ever after" cliche.
I liked Mark's accents. I have no idea if they are accurate, but they are fun.
The first book was the Disney movie we have all come to know and love. The further you went into the stories, the more political it became. That part was not my cup of tea.
It is an okay book on a long drive. I was a little put off by the non-sexy sex parts. (Looking askance, admiring the way a man looks or is looking at the main character...)
less steamy looks, more character development
Has a sympathetic damaged hero out to find the truth -- even though he thinks he knows the truth before the investigation starts. Nice mystery to curl up with by the fire.
My favorite places involved the inconvenience of an artificial limb.
It had the feel of a gritty "film noir" story. Some of the magic was a little convenient, but most of the limitations were fun to contemplate. Kind of an "Oh, yeah. That makes sense."
This is only the third book that I have reread (listened to) in my live. Orson Scott Card can write the pants off most contemporary authors.
The character development is great fun. How the adults describe the characters is strange, but makes me think of a Greek Chorus.
Interestingly enough, it is probably when the main character is resting at the lake. I needed a break from the intensity of the start of the book.
This one I would strongly recommend.
