Not sure I could ever call an audio edition better than the printed version. It was, however, a great way to experience Dorian Gray. I compare an audio edition to a movie, not to a book.
Henry - I was guessing at who he truly really was throughout the whole book - was he a devil or just a free spirited Englishman?
No, but I certainly will. He made this book come alive.
I hadn't planned it but I did. Well, not sitting, but it was in my robe pocket as I went around the house.
Dorian Gray has been sitting in my Audible library for a while. I am so glad I finally listened to it (in less than a 24 hour period, I might add!). The characters hooked me from the start. And Michael Page's narration was fantastic. Great combination of writer and narrator!
Absolutely - and already have.
Too many to narrow down and favorites would be spoiler alerts. Her clinging to the front gate in the beginning is one. The development of her relationship with her new father another.
Another favorite narrator of mine. His accent was perfection.
I could have.
I had this sitting in my Audible library for quite a while and it's only by accident that I listened to it. I had downloaded another book to listen to and it was awful from the beginning. I looked for another one to quickly download as I was walking out the door. So thankful that it was The Book Thief. Loved, loved, loved this book.
Wow, had no idea I'd get caught up in this book. But, alas, I did, and I was oh so disappointed when it was over. What a great story, and what a great author/narrator. Normally, I am not one for authors narrating their own books but I know that's part of what drew me in. I am so glad to see he narrates some of his other books which by the way, I'll start tomorrow.
Hard to say - Jenny or Letty.
Oh so much. Terrific narrator. Wish he narrated a lot more books.
Cried, cried and cried. Definitely drew into this book. I read Stephen King's the stand about 30 years ago and that was the last time I got this caught up in a book. Absolutely *loved* it.
A favorite. A relisten for sure. A wonderful intro to Gaiman. Read it - you won't regret it.
No. Defending Jacob was recommended for those who liked Sycamore Row. Since I loved that book, I gave it a try. Pretty early on I could tell it wasn't for me. Overuse of the f-bomb for starters. Yes, realize there are a lot of high school characters in this book but it was the adults using it. Seemed out of place. Not being familiar with Landay, I thought maybe this was a first book. Was wrong. Not a good fit for me.
Not necessarily this genre but probably this author.
The narrator didn't fit the story. A lot of young characters (young parents, young students, etc.) and the narrator just didn't fit in my opinion. Plus a very sad attempt at a Bostonian accent. Really threw me off.
Definitely not. Story came to a conclusion. Really not enough substance to merit a follow up.
I'm trying not to be harsh yet at the same time be honest. The over use of expletives seems to fit a younger (20'ish?) reader.
Certainly towards the top
Other Grisham novels.
No, but will certainly look for him again.
Great book but in my opinion even better narration.
