I was enjoying this book up until the last hour. I don't understand how the main Justice Dept. character can be so stupid - it just doesn't make sense. I agree with the reviewer that says the government agents look bumbling - too much so. The narration is good, and I guess I would give this a passing recommendation - barely.
I liked the humor of the book. The characters have a sarcastic attitude that rings true. I especially like that the book has a message behind it
The scenes with Buttercup and the wolves.
Buttercup, Her attitude and interaction was entertaining
I would recommend this book to fans of any of the comic novels or who like novels with a point. The narration,and story were excellent
I enjoyed transition and internal struggle of the title character against his conscience and his taking two steps forward and one step back
Readers bring a personality to characters that you don't get by reading it.
Superheros just ain't what they used to be
If you like snarky unorthodox comic novels, this is a good one.
Erik Larson's books always make me think and look for some of the historical references.The story is engaging, especially when looking back at it in historical context.Mr. Larson makes the characters engaging and gives them life.
There are a lot of different players so keeping track is a challenge.
If you like history you will like this book.The narration is well paced.
This book was absolutely riveting. The ordeal these men faced was amazing and the story of their survival is absolutely fascinating. The writing and the reader are great. The reader's voice and pacing perfectly fits the story. He doesn't add too much drama as the story needs no drama, yet it is not a dry rendition.
This book is definitely worth the read. The stories are up and down, some LOL funny, some sad and poignant, some boring, some overly long. But they are different and interesting. There were times I just laughed in the car over something I read.
Definitely worth the listen
The reader of this book is fabulous. Her pace easily goes with the characters and allows you to lose yourself in the story.
The story, while good suffers from a little bit of whinyness from Sarah. Her character loses her independence, while I understand some of it there is a bit much of it. Otherwise the story is good with a good ending.
Maybe its because I didn't read the Grant County series but it would be nice to get some background/closure on what Lena did.
I'd recommend this book
This book started out good but as I listened to it I got a little bored with it. Charlie became a bit of a dolt and it is difficult to believe he was a lawyer. Jenna wasn't much better. I don't have any reason to read another book in the "series"
This book is the usual Scalzi mix of characters, action, and story. The narration was good. The only thing I wish is that the narration would leave out the "he said" "she said" The narration is good enough that I know which character is speaking
This is a typical mix of Moore's irreverent characters who are both poignant and funny. It is a little hard to keep up some time with the flow but that doesn't detract from the story. The narration is excellent. I can't wait already for the next Christopher Moore book
Characters that are not all good or all bad and the story flows well. Iike the mix of humor and seriousness
When all the Fuzzy's appeared
