A different book under a different name. His son, Joe Hill has some great books out. Stephen King was really reaching in a bad way way this novel was one of his worst.
Hopefully Scott Lynch has another book in the Locke Lamora series.
He was perfect for the book, nothing to detract from?
Disappointment, the cover and the ratings were misleading.
I have outgrown Stephen King, I doubt I will read any more of his novels. The Shining was one of my favorite books and he should not have tried to bring any of the characters back. This is obviously just my personal opinion.
I do not like listening to overly detailed accounts of sexual violence. And this book gave play by plays of all graphic details.
Rob Shamlin did a decent job.
I would cut most of the details on the sexual assaults; I literally felt ill after an hour of this book.
I have listened to a lot of true crime, so for me to find the book too graphic takes a lot. I could only listen to about 80 minutes and did not finish the book.
I would eliminate the last half of the book, which is mundane court proceedings.
Very decent reader, great pace, no complaints.
I could see this being a great 48 hours, short and sweet.
I would remove half of the redundant material and then I would cut out anther 25 % percent of the nonsense and call the book decent. It is beyond repetitive which is not fun when it the characters are so one dimensional.
Nope cannot say I would that would not be nice of me.
Yes I absolutely think the narrator could have been a better narrator.
I would not go anywhere to see this book if it were made into a movie; however I could stand a thirty minute forensic file on the matter.
I was shocked at all the five star reviews, either I downloaded a different version than the rest of the world or something is off here.
No, and the answer is simple I recommend very few books and this one is just okay.
Sure he is decent enough.
Yep narration was fine.
If the case ever gets closed, absolutely.
This book was okay, not bad not great but there.
I have to say I gave up after two hours, I cannot believe the praise this book received as an audio book. Maybe in paperback where one could skip pages it would be decent but never in audio.
I don't know if it is informative, it seems that most people think so. I wanted to hear about the radical Scientology beliefs, but my attention span hated it so much I give up.
Slow quiet boring
I have listened to a lot of non fiction and I would have to say I normally agree with most reviews not this one. If you like to sleep get it and use it for pleasant white noise. Otherwise YouTube has some great ten to twenty minute clips on anything under the sun that is even slightly conspiratorial so hit it up.
Don't tease crazies
Well as this is true crime I can't say I liked anything best, however I did like this account better than HLN's Author Jane Mitchell.
Fifteen girlish okay
Nope, just think if Travis would have followed his own lead being as though he was a " mormon elder" and sex before marriage is a no go he would be alive today. Jody Arias was treated like trash and thrown away and being as though she was crazy this was the outcome.
I wish there was a detailed account of Arias's life for a better understanding of why she was so insane and more information on this case is general. This book is not nearly as bad as 50% of the reviews led me to believe, I followed the case and I think this book was pretty spot on, its the best book on this case out for now.
Narcissists scare me
No however I prefer audio so she did a decent job. Her reading pace is a little fast for my liking.
Over and over again I wonder how the victim missed the signs.
I like true crime but the books are a little slow.
Not the best true crime not the worst. If you like Ann Rule you will enjoy this book.
I love true crime and this is not a bad listen.
I think it would be easier to read than to listen to, it is more historical than entertaining.
Probably the information on the way they kept the prisoners isolated from each other and without any news on the outside.
I think he did a great job in general.
Prison of the mind.
If you are a history buff than you will like this detailed account of Alcatraz and its detailed account of some notorious inmates.
Laural Merlington drives me crazy, she has ruined the listening experience of Ann Rule.
All of her new short story cheapies she is throwing together, ahhhhhhhh.
Make me cringe
Maybe the bank robber story but that is only because I watched the 20/20 episode on these guys years ago, sad story.
I am over Ann Rules hastily done garbage. If Merlington is narrating I am not buying.
