I was hoping for character developement but was dissapointed.
I guess the backstories were more interesting than the main one. On paper there was action, but somehow it never got going for me. Is that wrong to say?
No, but I will probably look for them.
I do a LOT of audiobooks, and now I have a new way to rate. How many "Oh, ****!" moments are there? I can't keep count on Doctor Sleep. (I do NOT like the title but smarter folks than me picked it.)
My head is still spinning. I can't tell you, there were many that made me stop what I was doing. I may listen to The Shining again and then this right after.
I was just thinking, whoever got Will to do this was a genius, I love him in the James Lee Burke series but this may even be better. He really brought all the characters right into my head, without being overpowering at any time. No one was more of a standout, it was all very smooth and creepy in the right spots. (Wait, that hateful bitch may have been over the top a little but LOOK at her!)
I got the shivers more than once.
Ah HA! I'm not the only one, eh? Can I get back to you on this? Something to do with the train, maybe. Or the Overlook, I don't know. Lots to choose from.
I told 3 friends about it and in days I got notes back that they were totally hooked on it, wondering how they had missed this one. The title may have something to do with it. I gotta tell you, I was worried when the end of the second part was approching, I was not near my house and was afraid I had not put in the last part! I might have stopped shoeing and gone home, but it was on my player, disaster averted again.
Off to listen to Duma Key again....maybe now my second favorite King book.
I might put it in the top 10 percent. And I do LOT of audiobooks.
One brilliant line. It's worth the time just for that one line!
Wow, well, maybe the first bad dream, or the introduction of the wall? There were several times I stopped and re-wound to make sure what I was hearing!
Nope, I wanted to piece it out and really enjoy it. It's very elaborate and complex, and full of great imagery. Don't miss a word, you guys.
I'm so glad I got it, I really would be surprised if anyone does not like it. I'm working from payday to payday, too, so the first part really got to me, and was hard to get through. I know that neighborhood, too, and thoroughly enjoyed that aspect. The idea of so many curious folks still in this world just kills me, it's a true adventure story.
Oh sure, I like the novels ok. Loved Lincoln. I was just expecting to really laugh out loud and it never got to that point.
probably not, unless they were already a fan.
Unforgettable? Regular guy? I can't remember it being outstanding in any way.
I'm glad I didn't pay full price, it was ok but not something I thought about later at all, didn't find it all that funny or interesting. And I LOVE the idea of it. Sorry!
I think so, Sean captures Talbot, his timing is outrageous, and his voice sounds like I think Talbot looks. So often the narrator gets in the way but not in this series! I hope he enjoyed doing it as much as I like hearing him. Really, I wish I could express how much I enjoyed this one, raced to the second and now I'm going thru some of the other zombie ones I got on the sale. Very dull in comparison to my ear.
Saving Henry, of course, and Tommy's revelation. I mean the first big one, his friend. (I forget which story is in which book, I'm glad to be doing this before I finish the series.) Being a bulldog person, having Henry in here just adds a full extra layer in my opinion.
Just the next book in the series but I am going to look up more of his stuff, believe me. Hopefully it's not sappy romances....he is SO great doing Talbot.
Probably when Bear did his thing, I don't want to give it away but if you are a dog person, you will fully appreciate it. I had to stop what I was doing and sit down for a minute.
I'ms so happy to have found this series, it's far FAR better than I could have expected. If you like a little humor and human flaws in your end of the world books, take a look here. I got better headphones so I could mow while listening, bathed dogs, shod horses, and just had a tough time turning it off! I hope you guys like it too. Where can I email Tufo?
Probably in the bottom half, it was ok but I wouldn't listen to it a second time, I think. I can hardly remember it now.
The reader was very good, I have to admit. I had not heard anything by him before.
I did not give a fig about any of the characters even by the end. The only saving grace was seeing the flashes of anger in Victor.
Nope, not now.
Take advantage now.
Not so much as some of the others, but those were really outstanding.
Ha! Those accents this time. Oh, what a hoot. I could picture every one of the characters in vivid detail, without being beaten over the head by the voices.
I always have good laughs with Chris's books.
Just that I hope the series continues, I look forward to them very much.
I don't know, sometimes I wish I could see the printed word, but George just adds so much to the stories. Yes, I guess it's better, for me at least.
Action and the one liners. I'm not to the end yet and will listen to it again this week.
The Bear is always wonderful. Walt talked a little more in this one, but he was forced into it!
No way, I wanted to parcel it out and think about what I had just heard.
Craig can get more out of a line or two in describing a location, and it sticks in the mind. If he has told you about a place, you remember it. (Like that crummy motel a few books ago, oh man.)
Being a fan of Dana Stabenow and Nevada Barr, I was SO glad to find this author! First, I am just crazy about this narrator. Where has she been? When she speaks for the short person it just brings tears to my eyes and I'm not that kind of person. I could picture everything as described, not one time did I find her to be invasive. Let's put it this way, I think Tony Hillerman would have given the author a thumbs-up.
