What a thrilling book. But you must read 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' first to get the full story. These are the best books I have ever purchased from Audible. Simply AMAZING!
This book is AMAZING. It is written from the twisted yet innocent view of a 5 year old boy named Jack. The narrator for Jack is absolutely PERFECT. Every person in the book that speaks has their own narrator so it's more like listening to a play. I hope they make a movie out of this but it would be difficult. This is one of the most moving books I have EVER read. I highly recommend it!
The author reads his own book and usually that's a bad thing, but not here. He does an awesome job. In the interview that follows we find that he edited the book as he wrote it by reading it aloud. That makes it seem more like hearing a play, it really works.
This book and the sequel, 'The Girl Who Played With Fire' are the best books I have ever heard at Audible. I found myself listening every chance I got. I actually got the second book first and about 3 hours in I stopped then got this one so I could hear the story in sequence. I have heard a third book may come out this Fall (2009), but these two seem to complete the story that began here.
Please don't miss out or give any attention to a negative review - GET THIS BOOK, YOU WILL BE AMAZED!
Out of the 8 reviews so far, 5 are negative, so I felt compelled to say a positive word. This was very thrilling and kept me glued to my ipod.
I also want to give a word of advice to Audible listeners. Don't reject a book here based on a few reviews here. Look at reviews on other sites like Amazon.com first. I almost made the mistake of rejecting this book based on those negative reviews here. It would of been my loss.
This book is very well written. The author's writing is so descriptive. This is not your typical slutty erotica, this is good!
This book is very well written and the narration is absolutely perfect. She really sounds like she's 8 years old and has a great southern accent. I thought I figured out the ending but there was quite a twist and I like stories like that. It is a sad but very moving story. I highly recommend it!
I have never written a review at Audible, being a member now for almost 3 years. This book, and the 3 that follow in the series, are some of the best books I've ever heard/read. If you like a great love story, you have found it here.
The narrators are very good, especially the one for Bella, the main character. I highly recommend all 4 books in the series. Listening to them will surely enrich your life as it has mine. I was never into vampires or werewolves, but I sure am now! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
