Yes. It's an easy read involving something other than teenage vampires or werewolves.
It was a simple read with an interesting twist on classic Greek mythology.
When Calliope reveals herself.
This book is inline with the other John Green books I have read so far. Tackling difficult issues while reminding me what it was like to be a teenager.
The narrators did a fabulous job with this story. I would love to listen to it again.
The story if beautifully written and makes you feel for all of the characters involved, both small and large roles.
This was a fun and easy read that hit on topics that every girl has/should think about at some point in their life. I would recommend it to any young woman who needs a little bit of a pick me up.
Oh man, I didn't expect the ending at all. Geeesh! I'm very happy to hear that the Lacks grandchildren are now taking it into their own hands to learn more about gene/cell studies.
This was a fun and adventurous book. I don't get into wild journey stories like this very ofter, so it was quite refreshing in comparison.
It's just a whole other world that isn't too different from ours, making it easy to grip, but just strange enough to bring on the imagination.
The fight between Iorek and the King of the Bears.
This is a great adventure book, with talking bears, witches and magic compasses, what more could you ask for? What's that? You want to question authority and religion too? Well okay, you get some of that too! I just really enjoyed this book, it was fun and emotional and exciting.
I haven't read the print version, so its hard to say for sure. I can imagine, though, that I might have read the dialect a little differently than how the narrator did in some circumstances.
Girl meets boy, girl falls for boy, girl is hurt by boy.... girl goes to the underworld?? Sounds cool to me!
She sometimes had a very melodramatic tone to her voice which helped develop a very specific picture in my mind for the main character, Niki. On the other hand, I feel as though she read the male characters a little different than what I think I would have.
The development of what happened before Niki went to the underworld was probably were I couldn't stop listening. I was just so damn curious!! That and of course the end, which I kinda saw coming.
Good, easy listen. Romantic, dark, and supernatural.
I had a hard time reading the print version this time. I just couldn't pick up on Moore's flow this time. The audiobook made it possible to finish.
Well, I am going to school for art and art history at the moment. This book made learning the names of artists and adding wild stories about their encounters with a deadly muse a little more entertaining.
Although I am both a fan of fine art, history and Christopher Moore this book was a little difficult to get through. But once I got past a point, it was an interesting read and unique twist on all the artists I learned about in my art history class.
I would have read it in Middle School.
He really sounded like a dorky 16 year old.
Move on to more appropriate books for my age.
I remember friends of mine telling me that I needed to read this book back in High School, that it was amazing. Now that I have read it, I can understand how a High School or Middle School kid might love this book. It has all those feelings and sensitive issues that young adults are battling at that time.
Now being that I am in my mid 20s, this book wasn't as enjoyable for me as I had hoped. My patience for the character's break downs was pretty thin by the end of the story, but when I thought back to when I was that age I could relate to it.
I guess I've finally grown up and need to move on to books more appropriate for my age.
This was a fun book, especially being read from Gaiman himself. I felt like a was a kid being told a creepy story next to a campfire. Light hearted yet ghostly!
The guardians were the best. They are such unlikely characters, but the most caring to Bod.
I thought it was cute when Bod asked they slayer for girl advise.
I easily could havens I many hours to spare.
I can imagine giving this book to one of my kids/nieces/nephews to read at some point, but not till they're a little bit older. 11-15 year olds maybe.
