At first this book was rather enjoyable. It was far fetched and got hard to listen to. I enjoy listening to fiction and don't expect books to be true to life, however, this one was over the top! The narrator was overly dramatic through out the book making the more intense parts not as exciting as they could be. I found it was hard to listen to as he used the same expressions throughout the whole book. Although I do not feel as though I "wasted" a credit on this book; I wouldn't recommend it. There are many more books out there that are better and worth the money.
I love Bryce Courtenay's books! Here is another wonderful book! I never get tired of listening to Humphrey Bower; which makes this book!
I had trouble finishing this book. The narrators were good, it was well written, however, I personally enjoy stories, not diary narrations. The chapters told about a different character; this jumped from back and forth from different years. I just was not real crazy about it as it just wasn't what I enjoy.
I love books by Courtenay! The narrator makes a good book, such as this even better!
There are not enough stars to rate this narrator!!! The book was so well written and well done! I was sad to come to the end! I strongly recommend this book!
I did not enjoy this book. It may have been a well written book, however, this book is a good example of the narrator ruining it. I have listened to this narrator before and never had an issue. This time, however, he was over so over dramatic that it was hard to listen to. As I mentioned before, maybe this is well written; it was hard for me to listen to because of the narrator's poor performance. Instead of listening to this book I wish I would have read it instead.
I have not read or listened to a Grisham book for quite a while. While listening to this book I was reminded of how much I enjoy Grisham's books as well as the narrator. This book was a wonderful listen and I recommend it strongly!
Although I enjoyed this book, I did not enjoy it as much as I enjoyed Dan Brown's other books.
This book was not as good as I had hoped it would be. It was hard to understand the fast paced Irish accent, in the beginning. The story line was good, just hard to follow at times due to the accent.
I did not care much for this book. It seemed as though this book jumped around and it was sometimes hard to follow. I did not care for the narrators. I listened to this book up until the last chapter; at that point, I had had enough and wanted to listen to something I enjoyed more. Maybe this book would be more enjoyable if I read the book instead of listening to it. There are so many good books out there with amazing narrators! I was annoyed with myself that I used up a credit on this book. I do not recommend this.
I loved this book! For the first half of the book it jumped between two stories. Both characters were so interesting and the stories were so good. I knew that at some point the two would come together. The narrator was wonderful! I recommend this as well as any other books written by Courtenay!
