I have been a fan of this tale for many years. I was excited when the Claire Danes narration became available. I was not disappointed.
Margaret Atwood has managed to tell a futuristic tale in such a way that it almost remains timeless. The technology mentioned in the book is just detailed enough as to its sophistication but not detailed enough to lend itself to dating the story.
To imagine a world where women essentially become brood stock is unthinkable but yet, is it? Changes don't happen overnight. Ideas creep into our society and our world views slowly adapt until we normalize the outrageous.
This story really makes you think.
I was curious to see what kind of detective story Harry Potter's creator came up with and I thought it was brilliant!!
The narrator was terrific and really drew me into the story.
Another win! Thanks Audible!
Looking for more authors in the style of Stieg Larrson and Jussi Adler-Olson, I stumbled across this book. Although the narrator was fantastic, I was disappointed with the story. The characters, other than the main detective, didn't make me want to invest in the plot. I may try another book by this author, but not for a while.
I wrote a few titles for this review, but none of them seemed to fit. It was unlike any other book I've listened to set in WWII. The soldiers hide in plain site desperate to survive Nazi Germany, but at what cost?
Fantastic story, superb narrator - Jussi Adler-Olson knocks it out of the park. Another winner. Thanks audible!
This series is just fantastic. There are many layers to Hogan's characters and that's what makes them feel so real. The narrator was outstanding. If you are looking for a series packed full of magic, intrigue, action and deception, this is for you! Another winner! Thanks audible!
The Marco Effect is another superb story from Department Q. I love the guys that work this department. They are so ordinary but yet so interesting I just can't wait to hear what they are investigating next.
This is a terrific detective story with excellent narration. The whole series is excellent if you are a fan of this genre. It is smart and fun.
Another win! Thanks audible!
Ken Follett has knocked this one out of the park! I loved this book for so many reasons. The characters, the stories, the narration.....everything. If you have followed this trilogy you will love this instalment. If you haven't explored this series or this author and historical fiction interests you, this is a must read!!
Big win!! Thanks audible!!
I have tried twice to listen to this book but I just can't do it. Joanne Harris is one of my favourite authors with the Chocolat series but this story doesn't interest me at all. It has plenty of intrigue and the characters are fleshed out well but it is the general theme that I just don't like. I feel like this story has been told a million times and I am sick of it.
I was looking for an author similar to Maeve Binchy when I came across this book. Although no where close to the caliber of Maeve (in my opinion) it was a nice read. If you want something entertaining but aren't looking for anything deep, this is a good listen. The characters are fun and relatable and although the story was kinda fluffy, the narration was excellent.
This book was an enjoyable listen for sure. Simon Vance is one of my favourite narrators so I was happy with the telling of the story. I felt like I was on an adventure when I was listening so it was a nice surprise to find this series.
Thanks for the recommendation Audible!
I don't know if I'd have continued listening to the end of this novel had it not been narrated so well. The story was good but not at all what I was expecting I suppose. I have another title in my library from this author so I haven't given up on him. This story just didn't do it for me.
