I bought this book specifically to listen to after hearing Teddy Roosevelt: A Strenuous Life. The TR book really set the bar high and I honestly did not expect this one to be as good, but this one is every bit as good or better. It is very well written and is detailed, but only focuses on the issues and events that significantly impacted FDR and his presidency, so it is not overly detailed. It is very well read and I really enjoyed this book.
I haven't read the print version, but I laughed when I read Kelly Howard's review after I finished it because I kept thinking Rodney Dangerfield too. I also felt that the reader didn't pause enough between chapters and scenes and it really left me unbalanced at times.
It was a new twist on the Dracula story and I enjoyed it quite a bit. Dan Simmons is one of my new favorite authors.
Worth the wait. The first half hour or so frustrated me, but it all sorted itself out and it turned out to be a pretty good book. Well worth what I paid for it.
The ending was surprising and it left me wanting more.
I would recommend it. It was a good story with great characters. Like most, I didn't particularly care for the ending as it kind of left some unanswered questions, but it was well worth the credit.
I liked all of them but Casey Holloway, she sounded robotic.
This story had a ton of promise, but fell well short in my opinion. The ending was decent, but the bits in the middle were extremely painful. The main character was not even remotely likeable and I kept screaming for him to suck it up. He was the "poor pitiful me" angry type that I just can't connect with at all. It's hard to like a novel if you couldn't care less about the main character. I kept wishing that the "curse" would take him out.
No, for the reasons already stated.
She has a good voice.
It wasn't horrible, but it also wasn't one that I would listen to again.
Now one of my favorites, it has a great storyline and the narration is superb.
When Reacher and his brother go to visit their mother. It was very touching and made me miss my own mother.
Absolutely, I am a big Dean Koontz fan, but this book was a bit of a disappointment and was not as good as what I have come to expect from Koontz.
No, I would recommend other Koontz books before this one.
It was worth the credit, but it didn't really wow me.
It was interesting, but to me it just felt unfinished. It never really explained what the end game was and why the house was only selectively evil.
It was a solid performance.
Yes it was a well told story with great characters.
I didn't care for the narration at all. When he was voicing Bart he just sounded like an adult with a speech impediment. His narration wasn't horrible, but it wasn't that good either.
The narration really made a great story even better.
Everything, she's just a great story teller.
The Shining was awesome, but this book was absolutely incredible and well worth what seemed like a painful wait. Will Patton is an incredible narrator.
When Dan released the spirit of the grandmother.
Everything. He really brought the characters to life and did a great job of voicing them all. I have never listened to a Will Patton book before, but I will be looking for more.
It made me feel like I was visiting an old friend.
