I am glad that I listened to this book, it was more than I expected. Bronte wrote like she thought. You can't do anything while you read this or you don't get the wonderful mental pictures she writes for you. She is not my favorite author of this timeframe but as a classic, this one is worth the time you will put into it.
Great sample reading. Held my attention and I will be looking forward to finding out what the outcome of their predicament will be in the future. Intriguing end situation here. Good writing. Thanks Audible!
I loved this cute funny book. I don't mean cutsie, but seriously Cute! I like Jack and his hard baked attitude. I loved the dog. All the science fiction was well written and artfully explained so you could easily visualize it. With out giving anything away I adored the Fuzzy bi-peds. I didn't realize this was a remake. It was excellent redo. If you like science fiction, strange landscapes, a good no nonsense plot with lots of humor, get this book. I highly recommend it. Well worth your credit.
Enjoyed this storyline with Pendergast and Constance. Got to know her so much better. Also lots of twists and turns that need to be read to keep up with the series. I can't get used to the new reading for Pendergast. Miss Scott Brick, wish he would come back. I enjoyed this book. Would highly recommend it and feel it is a must read to keep up with the twists and turns. Well worth a credit.
I was really looking forward to this new book. I liked Cory and looked forward to her being in the main character story line. The authors fleshed her out nicely. She has come a long way from her first appearance as a rebellious yet very likable young girl who needed a mentor and protector. I liked her field of education and how she got out into the field of this storyline. I was very disappointed in the lack of southern reality of Pendergast's drawl. Rene does a good read, but I miss Scott so much. Pendergast just isn't the same. The mystery was good and was a surprise to me. I will look forward to the next book.
An interesting interview. I remember the movie never read the book. May try to get around to it after hearing the interview. Thanks Audible!
Wonderful, fun, grand, NOPE!
Grim, strange, gory, devastating, intriguing, unbelievably well written, great research YEP!
It is HELTER SKELTER. One of the most bizarre incidents that I remember in my 68 years. I hesitated to listen to this book but my granddaughter had read it and asked my opinion in the Charles Manson time frame. I was amazed at how much I didn't know and how much of the little I knew was actually untrue. So I listened and learned.
Horrific happenings and seriously strange mentally deranged people. Buglosi and Gentry turned out an excellent account and book.
Of course Scott Brick is my Favorite Performer. I miss him as Pendergast.
I highly recommend this book. There is so much more to this terrible tragedy than just some bad people who killed some other people one night. The authors get into the minds of these monsters. I now feel like I can at least talk with some knowledge about this event, but how sad those times were in our history. Well worth a credit.
Billy Crystal is a funny man with a lot of insight about life in the fast lane and the slowing down that comes with the detours age makes while on the super highway. Very funny man. Could have listened to him for a lot longer. Great performance. Puts into perspective the fact that we are all trying to find our keys at this stage in life and a good laugh at all the ticks and tocks of life's clock helps make things bearable. I enjoyed this listen and recommend it. Caution not for young ears, adult language. Well worth a credit.
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a combo of Thurber and Stiller, what could go wrong? Absolutely nothing. Fun and fantastic 15 minutes. I loved the listen, thanks Author, Performer and Audible. A gift that keeps me coming back for more.
Don't expect to think you know all about this because you saw both movies. Lots of new and interesting things about all the Characters. Charles Portis is a wonderful author and his way of getting into his characters is amazing. I liked Mattie more and Rooster less but that is because of Donna Tartt's excellent reading and the real shadings of these two characters. She is a grand performer with her voices on this project. I enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to all. Well worth a credit. Made your heart feel good.
The Secret Life Of Bees is one of the best books to come along in awhile. I especially liked the time period and the descriptions of life through out the era of the story. I felt caught up in the story. I couldn't turn it off. Storyline was so interesting. Timing of events as you learned them was terrific. Each character was plumped out and you felt like you knew them well by the end of the book. Hated to see this end. The performance was perfect. Jenna did a wonderful read. Sue Monk Kidd a superb author. I highly recommend this book. Good for all ages.
