I love this book. And I loved it even more on audio. Johanna does such an amazing job as Sookie. Weird that they left out the very last line of the book...or did my audio copy just mess up? And there was a part where a line was repeated. Strange.
Ms. Harris' books are the best!
I thouroughly enjoyed this book. I thought the story was great. It kept me engaged the entire time. The only complaint I have is one that I have with all of Hannah's books...it takes to long to get to the point. She always puts way too much backstory into her books and then when the climax finally comes...boom...it's over. With this one it seemd to take forever for Angie and Lauren to finally get to their relationship.
Same thing with Conlan and Angie's relationship. But their's was worth the wait. It was beautiful.
I've become a fan of Kristin Hannah's.
I thouroughly enjoyed every bit of this book. The narrators were all fantastic. The characters were so well drawn I felt like I knew them all by the end of the book. It was witty and funny and serious and sad all at the same time. It was an all around excellent effort on Hornby's part. Loved it. Can't say that enought. I'm going to check out his other work now too.
The story was ok but waaaay to predictable. I had it figured out after a couple hours and then had to sit through the rest waiting until the bad guy revealed himself. It would have been better if Langdon had figured it out. This was just kind of boring. Plus the "facts" were sooo many that it got a bit confusing. I think it may have been better to read this as my mind tends to wander when listening.
Honestly, this book makes no sense at all.
Why is he so worried about his wife being liable for his medical bills if they were incured before they got married? Why in the world did they get married to get health insurance when everyone knows preexisting conditions aren't covered? (Everyone knows this - and if you don't - turn on your tv and watch the news.) Holding your emotions in causes cancer? Exactly what altruistic purpose does killing yourself serve? How is that going to settle the medical bills he's so worried about? The list goes on and on.
And the narration is horrible.
I enjoyed this book. Shreve writes beautifully. She has a very lyrical prose that is inherent in her writing. I found this story to be vastly better than the other Shreve novel I tried to read, Where or When. I couldn't finish that one, the story being so horrible. But Body Surfing moved along at a pretty good clip and I found the characters intriguing.
In this audio recording, however, I found the music to be intrusive. i did not like that at all.
Over all, a good purchase.
I hate girls like Kelly so I could not get into this story. Hard to like a story when you hate one of the main characters.
I was pleasantly suprised to listen to this. I really enjoyed it. It was funny and it moved fast. I read a review of someone who didn't like it because they didn't like Bill and wanted Sookie to be with someone else. I totally get that, I was rooting for Sookie and Sam the whole way through, but I didn't not like Bill. He just really came across as flat in this book. Hopefully that will change in the books to come.
The narration got on my nerves a bit. Her male voices were rediculous, but I'll still continue with listening anyway.
Honestly, I like Christine Feehan...most of the time. I find her books imaginative and fun, but this one was just too much of the same thing over and over again. I kept waiting for the plot to start but it never seemed to. It was just "she's mine" or "I must take her" or "I can't possibly love this man" "I love this man" "She is everything" some other goofy possesion thing...but I suppose that fits the title.
It seems like Ms. Feehan will put out a good book in the series and then one that is just full of sex and no substance. This was one of the latter. One with a plot and then one that borders on porn. If you have read any of the Dark series then you know what lifemates are and the level of attachment they have for one and other. You don't need to be reminded of it in every paragraph.
I did, however, enjoy the narrators. They were fantastic and I found myself searching for other books read by them.
All in all, I wasted $20...but I will, nevertheless, buy the next one.
