It was a surprisingly strong top tier read - story and narrator. Wasn't sure I'd like it but couldn't wait to jump back in on my commute each day to see how it all turned out.
It falls into the Mitch Rapp/Vince Flynn camp - shorter, not as in depth in detail but certainly a fast read with the elements of suspense, revenge and the depths the inquisitor goes to for the truth.
I liked it - took a bit to get used to as the narrator was a new voice for me - but it worked well as it adopted the persona of the key players in the story arc.
Parts made me squirm but not to the point of distraction from the overall story. Just enough to bring you into the inquisitor's mind and persona in full support of the story.
Very classic Grisham-like tale that keeps you listening beyond your typical window of commuting or otherwise. Tackles family, legal systems, police investigations and the mind set during each phase. Well done.
Yes - It renews the current nature of this classic.
This was an amazing experience - Couldn't stop listening
No question - Guy Montag is solid with sensitivity and depth. Clarisse gives the story direction that further rounds out Guy as the lead.
Tim Robbin's performance was terrific - beyond any of my expectations! It made this an instant classic all over again. I have not heard any of his others but now he, as a narrator, has my attention.
I was riveted unlike anything I expected. As my headline states, How is it possible for a book from the early 50's to be so on target with where we are today? When originally read, it leaned science fiction. Now, it's far more the reality of our current technological times.
Brilliant. A Must Listen!
Yes - I found the "experience" of the story and Scott Brick's narrative compelling and addicting to keep me engaged and wanting more.
I didn't see it coming - which I like - and I let the story take me there in a very effective way
Scott Brick is consistent to say the least - It certainly compliments the story when someone of his caliber is at the helm of the read
I think we've all felt frustration, even helplessness, when circumstances spin out of control. There were plenty of these moments.
This is my second experience with a Rob Lowe authored and read selection and I'm pleased to say "Love Life" was on par with his autobiography - a personal, reflective, often humorous, and in this case, family-focused read.
Rob, of course. Yet, not in the way many of us can fully define depending on the era we became familiar with him. I was taken into his characters as well as the public and private person keeping me engaged as the stories are told.
The missteps that failed to lead to roles and opportunities he would have easily entertained had he had the chance.
Keeping it in Perspective
This was a total discovery - from the writing, the author and the narrator. It's been a long time since I wasn't able to stop...
The pacing was terrific - the narration equally - many moments when I was unable to stop as I needed to know more about the next twist.
Everything - I probably gravitated to Scott Brick more often than not in the past but January will now be another top favorite.
A nice mix of emotion, mystery and twisted behavior. Compelling combinations
Read by the author, and there's no one who could improve on how Nash brings his work to life through lyrics and life experiences of the global and LA rock scenes.
Nash as well as the cast of musicians that surround the story arc from Hollies to CSN to CSNY to CN and solo.
Many favorites including becoming a US citizen and the Joni Mitchell relationship
A life behind the music you love
This is a rich, enjoyable and accessible read.
I had high expectations, but, no, it wasn't time well spent as the performance was not up to the anticipated caliber of the story
kept trying, but never was able to finish it
It just didn't grab me or hold my attention It was more distracting from the story than an enhancement to it.
No, not in my opinion
When I wasn't drifting due to the even keel and lack of emphasis from the reader, I found the story intriguing. The challenge was keeping attention on the presentation.
The prep detail that book described to prepare agencts.
What a ride - a terrific continuation of Meltzer's previous release. It was great getting back in touch immediately with the characters. As one who is also interested in presidential history, I found the integrated realism of events that surrounded key presidents, Lincoln most prominently, but others as well, very intriguing. It inspired many search and Wiki inquiries to determine any reality in Brad's basis for some of the plot twists. Truly couldn't put it down - made my commute longer by design. Highly recommended.
plot twists, deep basis for story lines, plenty of surprises
Scott's a favorite - as many have said, he could read the phone book and it would be a must-listen
I was pleasantly surprised and inspired to learn more all along the read
There's a lot of history here. It is told in a very personal way, fully accessible and very listenable. Great to get such perspective from Buddy Guy and those who were there during this era of Blues awareness.
No question, Buddy Guy although those he comes in contact with each have their own appeal.
I might. It took a bit to adjust to Willis's performance but once I got into his rhythm it was a joy ride
It makes me want to venture to the areas of the country central to the book and walk the steps Buddy Guy walked alongside so many legends
It's a terrific compliment to Gregg Allman's book - great background on what was happening in the music industry told through the eyes of a couple of central figures.
