Great insight into the Science of Sex and where the two meet!! As a sexual energy professional, I found this an amazing resource to explain many things that I experience in my work.
Good stuff -
WOW - this was a great listen. Stephen King is sometimes too gory for my sensibility. However, this was a great what-if.......
It was deep, romantic, comical and suspenseful. Set in the era of the 50's and 60's, I found myself thinking -
Everything - particularly his ability to give each character his or her own voice. It was not at all difficult to keep the characters straight.
As a Seattle native, I truly identified with this book. It was hard fro me to turn off the car and the Ipod. I cried, I laffed and my heart filled with joy when the book ended. It was a book that ended so beautifully that I did not desire a sequel. It is a well researched and great listen.
Stieg Larsson has done it again and whomever the translator is does an amazing job of bringing forth visions of the characters.
Since reading the series, I have seen the movie version and I must say that the cast if characters are very much like I imagined then to be.
I hope that I have more opportunity to follow the adventures and mis-adventures of Elizbeth Sallinger.
For some reason, I was not fond of the narration of this story. It was a bit sing-song and flat for me. I did not feel it did justice to the way the novel was written and Allende's wonderful and expressive descriptions.
I feel compelled to purchase the written version of the book to see how the vision unfolds for me. I truly think it is a well written story.
Funny, sad, ridiculous, true in so many ways. A Hiaasen character is as unique as his story lines. He is one of my all time favorite fun and satirical writers!!
I have read everything Carl Hiaasen has written. He is a master of satire in my opinion. Being a Florida resident, I love how he spins the story with political undertones. It's almost time for me to go back to the books I have "read" and listen to them being read. This story line is far out and believable all at the same time. Such fun to read!!
This story was not particularly memorable although when I hear the title I remember it with a smile. So I enjoyed it but it's a playful book for in the moment - a light and fun way to pass a few hours on the road.
For some reason this book read almost like a movie. I could picture each of the characters and even the places they visited and the circumstances of each of their lives. One of my favorite Audible choices. I read audible when I ride in the car or walk. This book inspired me to drive and walk.
I was a bit disappointed. It was an okay way to pass a long road trip. Dysfunctional characters caught up in the normality of life. I was a bit bored at times.
don't read this before you read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Both are "can't turn off suspense" I look forward the the next Elizabeth Sallinger adventure.
