This book kept me engaged and was thought provoking and interesting. I would recommend it. I enjoyed it.
This story really made you think about what is important in life and how you would feel if those things were suddenly gone. It was also interesting to think about how quickly people conform to new norms and how scary mob mentality can be.
I think the main character was my favorite. It was interesting to see things through her eyes.
What would you do if suddenly everything you take for granted in life were taken from you?
I did not read the print version.
I liked the character development. I thought you really got to know each character individually. Even if their story wasn't that compelling, you felt like you knew them.
I liked that it kept me on my toes the entire time trying to figure out what was going on.
The little sister and everything about her was memorable. That and the wild animals.
I thought the story was really interesting and it kept me guessing until the end about what was going on. Although what actually happened was shocking and horrible, I was hoping/thinking it would be something deeper and more sinister.
No, I'm not really one for listening to books, or reading them, more than once.
Langdon, as always. But the characters in the book with him were great too.
I thought he did all the characters well. Nothing about his performance was distracting from the story.
Yes! I listened every chance I got because I wanted to know what would happen next. This was a great story.
I found myself half agreeing with the villain in this story. Once I found out his motives, I couldn't help but see why he thought he was doing something good.
I might listen to it again. I think he talked about a lot of things that I might gain more from if I were to listen again.
I think the most compelling thing is just how illogical religion and god are and how he demonstrates that. If you can listen to it and really think about it without getting emotional, you can see how illogical it all is.
It was interesting having two readers to clearly distinguish between the author's words and others'.
No. I found myself agreeing with so many things he had to say. I was surprised actually how much I agreed. It's scary to not believe in god or religion when you grow up in a world where so many people believe so strongly and think that without religion you're less of a person. It was nice to hear from someone who has put a lot of thought in to it and made very intelligent and logical arguments.
I really liked this book. I don't typically read fantasy so I was a little hesitant about this book but I really liked it. The characters were well developed and I wanted to hear their stories. I liked the way all the characters were intertwined. It was very well written.
When the Jinni went back home.
The scenes where the Jinni and the Golem were discovering life in the city and seeing everything for the first time.
Weirdly charming bool
Yes, I would be willing to try another. She did a good job of getting the reader/listener to relate to characters that were way out there.
I have not, so I can't compare. But I thought she was a great narrator.
Ollie. The main character. You got to know her best and could see everything from her point of view.
This book was not what I expected. I was expecting more of a love story and a kind of a twisted sort of fairytale. I guess in a way it was that. It was an interesting story for sure.
Yes, if they were just looking for something short and easy and entertaining but not serious.
I thought she did a great job with all of them. Marianne was funny because she said things that were so dumb.
I did laugh. Some of the lines were just so cheesy they were funny.
Extremely helpful & insightful.
I think this book applies to every single person and every single relationship no matter what. I saw this book on the daily deal and decided to listen even though I feel my marriage is very happy and successful and I still found the book wonderful. I think it will make my relationship even better than it already is. I can see how it could save marriages.
I liked that the author read the book himself rather than an actor doing it. I felt like I was getting advice straight from an expert.
When I realized what my husband's love language is and got great tips on how I can do a better job of showing my love for him.
Like I said, I think this is a great book for everyone- good relationship, bad relationship and even parents would benefit from this book in learning more about their child's love language.
I guess so. I enjoy listening to audio books while I'm doing other tasks so that I still feel like I get in enough "reading." This book was moderately entertaining but not great.
Something way more exciting and keeps me excited to turn the book on again rather than turning it on so I can find out what happens so I can move on to a new book.
Matthew. I think Jennifer Ikeda does a great job with her performance and with making the characters distinct enough. She does the male characters believably without sounding cheesy.
Yes. It's part of a trilogy so there is no resolution and no ending.
I'll listen to the third book only because I feel like if a story doesn't have an ending it's annoying. I know some people love the series but I found it pretty boring. Lots and lots of description about things that didn't seem to me like they were important to the story at all. I'm pretty sure all the actual plot could have been put in to one book and it would be much more exciting.
