I am almost finished with book one in the trilogy and I'm downloading book 2. Its an engaging exploriation of human relationships that goes beyond the "zombie" background. The relationship between siblings, parents, friends, the political BS, kept me listening for hours and hours. Will miss the characters lost in book 1. That is the best part of the book, I felt attached to the characters enough to miss them. If you didn't like this book, then you need to reopen your mind, every book you read (or listen to) won't change the world, but they can entertain you, question you and enlighten you. The questions I left this book with and the questionS I hope you find when you read this book is : WHAT WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO GIVE UP EVERYTHING FOR? WHAT WOULD YOU BE WILLING TO RISE UP FOR?
Even when the ending was clear and inevitable I still wanted Charlie's fate to be different. He was a character you cheered for and wept for and wanted the absolute best for. He was an unexpected hero. His rise and fall were heart wrenching, especially when the people around him continued to fail him. Their insecurities became his obstacles, they could only accept him when they considered him to be less.
Charlie's awakening and realization that people he thought he could trust had betrayed him by treating him as a source of entertainment instead of as a friend.
Be careful what you wish for.
The story from start to finish was about more than just the people coming back, it was about a family and a community dealing with the loss of a child, a loss that is not erased even if the child returns.
The new relationship between Harold and Jacob, and the sacrifices made.
Harold was my favorite character. His honest and raw reaction to his son's return really made me sympathetic to him.
I've watched the French show The Returned and I'm currently watching the US version of the book - Resurrection. Mr. Mott's vision of the story really drew me in and made me finish the audio sooner than I had planned (binge listening). He drew a picture of the characters, the community, the "prison camp" and town that was easily visualized. Not sure if I like the twist the television series is taking away from Mr. Mott's original story line, but time will tell.
Bone to Pick ranks pretty high among the audiobooks I have consumed. It kept my attention start to finish.
Yes, it was engaging, funny, and an enjoyable read (listen).
All of them. Some books really don't transfer well to audio, mainly because the characters are not distinctive enough for you to recognize them based on their actions/attitudes/tone. But Ms. Harris defined distinct characters who stand out alone.
Yes it was, and yes I did.
