This feels a bit like taking a theology class, watching a great play, and talking to your best friend. This is one of the most interesting explorations of Christianity, inviting us to expand our view of God and Jesus. This is going to cause controversy and will be considered radical. But more than that it will make us reconsider what we believe and why.
Wow - - this one got me. I was so enthralled I had to finish to see how it ended. That's my definition of a good book. Clever and fast-paced psychological thriller that has good and bad guys that are hard to discern. The family aspect made it seem real. And this one is a really good story.
What a great book! I love little brats who are smart, funny, and don't always get away with it. The best thing is that this does actually seem like how a genius child would act and think when strange things happen. This particular brat has a fascination with chemistry, but more specifically - - with poison! Thanks, Audible for putting this one on sale because I doubt if I would have picked it up unless it was really cheap. Fortunately for me, they did and I did and now I can hardly wait to continue the adventure. I really like the narrator, too - - which kind of makes me in the minority.
Apparently the answer is a LOT. Both predictable and boring is not a good combination for a cop story - - and this is both. I am reminded of why it takes a really superior writer to make a conspiracy plausible. Unfortunately, this book is short one superior writer. I also kept looking at the narration - - the voice is so deep it sounds like you must be listening to the wrong speed. Can't recommend this one.
A good book in need of an editor that would have stopped you from wondering time and again how the characters got from one scene to the other. This is a cute story that with just a bit more care would have hung together more. Even a pretty laid back reader like me can't quite tolerate the inconsistencies so I'll not be in search of the next one in this series. Too bad, because it did have potential.
This is an extremely well written character study of family woven into a crime drama. Add to that locations that almost become characters and you have one truly fine novel that I wish I had picked up much sooner. The only flaw is the narration which is "okay" but not consistent. I confess there were a couple of times I had to rewind to figure out what had just been mumbled. Even given that, this is a great book from an author that is on her way to fame.
I like that this finally came to a conclusion and that Koontz does a fine job of ending it. It feels like he was out of ideas two books ago. While I'll miss the book 1-5 Odd Thomas, it was fine to conclude the series with a few nods to the faithful. As always, the narrator is superb.
Well written story that provides a new view of all of the victims of the Nazis. Such a horrible time viewed through the eyes of children is buoyed by a lyrical tone and magical elements that help to find just the right pace and tone. Great book.
Please avoid comparing to other recent novels and just take this one as a stand-alone well thought through mystery. The perspective on this one is pretty rare and quite surprising. I confess a real preference for complex characters presented flaws-and-all in my books, and this one did a fine job with that. If you like good writing, pretty good narration, and a great who-dun-it, you'll love this British mystery. Watch out for spoilers - - I've caught a few in the reviews. Just buy this one and enjoy.
Good writing, interesting story, but for some reason I wasn't as invested in the lives of the characters as I wanted to be. I never felt like I understood or could imagine being any of them, save maybe the simple but heart-of-gold cop. Still, it's a good story and the narrator is excellent - - come on, it's Scott Brick so you know the performance will rock. I think my problem may have been I really don't like snobs, and under it all, that's who the main character is - - a caring snob.
Mma Romatswe is like a dear friend - - I love visiting her and her world. I love to listen to these wonderful books and feel like I've gone home - - although I've never visited the continent. This is an especially wonderful visit. Come with us.
