The Robot Series really can do no harm in my opinion. Classic Assimov writing, great story telling, and really pulls you along so you want to know what happens at the end of the book.
The events in the book cover about 2-3 days from what I could gather, which on its own isnt a bad thing but it just seems like not much happens and that this book is clearly part of a larger story instead of being a complete package in and of itself.
Having said that, if you have tons of credits it would be fun to get into I think, I just dont know if I would spend 4 months worth of credits to get through the series.
I bought this as a daily deal not knowing that it was a "romance thriller" and while I usually wouldn't mind, the thriller plot was CONSTANTLY being interrupted by the high-school level writing of the romance plot. It was integral to the overall story, but the caliber of writing felt like the author who easily handled the intricacies of the other elements of the book let her little sister write the romance portion.
Once the romance plot came to its obvious conclusion the book was much more enjoyable, and the twist and turns at the end were good.
... But its basically exactly what you would expect from the story with no risks taken or captivating language or style.
Not to say I wanted anything exciting or unusual to happen, but it was basically a plain and generic telling of what happens to one of these poor and unfortunate girls.
That said, it was worth the listen.
With a huge number of short mysteries there is bound to be something in here for everyone. I admit some of them were a miss for me, but many of them were really great and took the idea and ran with it.
Hoping to get a bit deeper than the movie could delve I got the book, it was a bit of a let down as its roughly the same experience as the movie. The movie might even be a bit more enjoyable if you can believe it.
Another London classic, really gets inside the animal mind and his attention to detail is at his highest level here.
Such a quick read, but its such a wonderful little story of a dog finding his wild side again. Highly recommended
The story effortless flows from chapter to chapter, and seems to glide along faster than books half its length. While largely predictable and straight forward, there are a few twists and turns in there that drive the book forward and make it interested.
Will definitely be waiting for the next in the series.
While narrated well, the story didn't hold my attention to finish. I attempted to slog through it many times but just didnt care about anything that was happening.
Aggravating when mystery books have the murderer turn out to be someone who wasn't really involved in the story until you find out they are the killer. Feels like the whole listening experience is wasted when the killer turns out to be a character you have no idea about until the very end.
