Yes. I am against the death penalty so it only affirmed what I believe. Against it or not, read this book. It might make you think.
In true Grisham fashion he takes the story all the way to the end. It is not expected for sure.
It involves Mrs. Drum and a suit. No book has ever evoked that kind of emotion from me before.
No he pretty much said all that needs to say about the death penalty.
This is a HEAVY book for Grisham. Not for the faint of heart!!!
I wouldn't go that far. However, There were a few parts I couldn't wait to get back to...wondering what would happen next. This book moved too slow for my taste, and I was disappointed in the lack of creepiness King is known for.
Everything. He's one one of my favorites.
Holly made me laugh. I love crazy :-)
No ghosts, creatures, monsters or super natural characters in this one. This is pure old school detective writing. I personally do not enjoy that genre so this book almost got 3 starts. However, King can tell a story and it did hold my interest.
Angel's journey to find herself.
The story is fast paced with many surprises, and there is just enough gross factor for a good cringe. Also, there are many laugh out loud moments. That is a double plus for me.
I was mixed about her Southern accent. Sometimes she was spot on, other times it was laughable. Being a southerner it's a personal preference. Otherwise, excellent job.
This was a good book overall. It was pure, unexpected entertainment from beginning to end. I bought this book solely on the high reviews, being I have never read this genre. Good choice for a credit.
Christmas land of course
Lou. He reminds me of a lab puppy who doesn't know 60lbs is too big to sit on my lap. Loves his family beyond anything else.
I can't say enough about her. She put her whole heart into every character. I could imagine the spittle flying from her mouth during some really angry scenes and her actually crying during the emotional ones. Kudos Kate!!
No I needed breaks. Kate made this way more intense than if I were reading it myself. Some nights I was worn out!
Overall good book. I was entertained from beginning to end that's for sure. If you like creepy kids horror books, it's definitely worth your credit.
This book took me totally by surprise. I was desperate to find a book to spend a credit on, so I decided to try it out based on reviews alone being I have nothing to compare it to. WOW!! I went into this book biased, expecting not to enjoy it, but it had me
from the the beginning. Carolyn Mccormick is the soul of this audio book. She speaks every character as if she has emodied them.The Plot moves very
quick and was always catching me by surprise. I have finished the series now and am sad to see it
end. Thank you, Suzanne Collins for my introduction
into this world and to these characters.
In the middle
The interaction between the characters. I really got to know all of them easily.
When he wasn't speaking in an accent, and there are many, I liked Ray Porter. The editing is choppy so he sounds like a robot at times.
Cut out the cussing and this is a teen suspense novel. Luckily, I enjoy teen books so I wasn't terribly disappointed. It was too long and should have ended at least four different times. It is a fun read, but don't expect a thrill ride. More like a haunted house ride at the local fair.
Yes. Great story and just enough creep factor.
I haven't listened to him before and he was amazing.
If you are looking for monsters and gore this one isn't it, but I promis you would be missing out if you don't read it. It is a ghost story/who dunnit with a little bit of magic and yes King fans, some love. If I had the time, I would have have curled up on a Saturday and listened to the whole thing at once.
I already have. I listened to this book in less than two weeks which is quick for me. I was always anticipating getting back to it and thinking about it at odd hours of the day. At one point I did sneak off for a listen at work just to hear what happens next.
No specific book, however, the fast pace and the scary supernatural stuff that went on throughout the entire book reminded me of earlier Koontz. Twilight Eyes comes to mind as I am writing this.
When Rose first encounters Abbra in her head. Patton does a wicked pissed off Rose!
No one is who they appear to be
I want to clarify I didn't give it 5 stars only because I am overly critical about what I read. There are some plot lines involving Abbras' parents and herself that I was like "no way that would have happened." This was definitely worth my credit, and I would have purchased this book without one being an avid King fan. Thank you Stephen King for another awesome two weeks of escape. And to Will Patton for reading me to sleep every night. Like most King's books the narration was spot on.
Yes! I love Gillian Flynn and I can't wait for the next book! Ann Marie brought these characters and this town to life.
I've listened to all three now, and this one is at the bottom of the pile. Had the "who dunnit" part figured out way early in the book which proved to be a big distraction for me. Also, some of the plot lines were over the top not believable.
EVERYTHING! She is what kept me listening honestly. Her Southern accent, especially Adora was spot on. She lulled me to sleep every night with her syrupy sometimes throaty voice. Love love love Ann Marie Lee.
Not to eat meat for several weeks. If you were actively trying to create vegetarians, Gillian, mission accomplished.
I urge you to read Gone Girl and Dark Places first. I fell in love with Gillian's brilliant prose and her deliciously macabre brain leaving me wanting for more. By the time I read Sharp Objects, I was a wee bit jaded so it was much easier to swallow. I almost put this one down several times.
