This story is full of exaggerated and offensive stereotypes , silly and ridiculous plot lines, and horrific dialogue. I can't believe I listened to the end, but I did because I kept thinking nothing could be this bad. I was wrong.
Never have written that book. Understood that not everyone poor is an idiot, that not everyone middle aged is prejudice and that writing a good story takes a creative thought.
The poor person reading this book was not paid enough.
Are you kidding.
I have said more worthwhile comments in these short sentences than written in the entire book.
Interesting concept, but lots of teen angst and love which is obviously geared for the pre-teen set.
Eliminated the gushy obsessive teen infatuation pieces.
Overall okay, the character changes was not great and kept drawing me out of the story instead of keeping me involved.
I had planned to see the movie, now I think I'll wait and see what my friends say.
This book was my first by Peter Heller. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was well-written, with good a good plot. I did not see how, from the book summary, I would stay alert as I listen while commuting but I did not want to shut off my ipod. Kept me involved from beginning to end.
The significant scene when he goes out with his dog up the mountain.
I enjoyed the entire book.
The storyline and narration went well together. I loved this book.
The story was typical King. I loved the entire book.
Overall I enjoyed the entire book and bought a hard copy for my son.
The dog's perspective was unique but it became tiresome in some parts. And some of the "cute" animal comments fell flat.
I have never read a book by Mr. Quinn before.
No I did not like the narration at all.
No, very middle of the road book, good for my commute.
I would purchase another if it was on sale; this was predictable but somewhat entertaining.
Predictable, VERY slow moving, yawned a lot, made myself finish it. It is not exciting, it is not entertaining and it was a waste of brain energy to listen to it.
This story could have been good, instead it was juvenile. A good monster book for a ten year old.
He did okay.
One of the most engaging, colorful, stories I have read (well listened to) in a long time. Definitely held my attention and I wish it was longer. I drive one and half hours each way to work and listen to audio books over my radio; I finished this in two days because I drove around just to finish the story. This books captured a family struggling with issues that most of us can relate to.
Pat who bared his soul in this novel. Even though it was fiction, you felt his pain.
A lot to choose from but would have to be the end scene when Pat receives his present from Tiffany.
Perfect name, stupid question.
Read it, you won't regret it.
Twists and was unpredictible
no so n/a
yes, would find myself driving around to listen to it through my car stereo
This book was recommended to me from another commuter. I had no idea what it was about. It was definitely a book I would recommend and kept me guessing about what was going to happen.
