Probably, lots of twists and turns. left me unsure.
I'm not sure how I feel about the story. I couldn't tell at the end if the bedbugs were real or if she was just crazy as a bedbug. lol
No, this was a first
I could picture it on FearNet of Chiller
Eh, I'm not sure. the stories were well written, but it just didn't do it for me.
Like a said, this were good stories, just not what I was looking for.
This was a series of short stories, so there was not one particular character that stood out.
As you can probably tell, I'm kind of ambivalent about this audio. Please, do not let that reflect the quality of the stories. The stories ranged from quirky to disturbing. But, it just wasn't what I was looking for at the time.
I had just read a book by Libba Bray "Beauty Queens" which had me rolling with it's biting humor. And I was looking for something like that. Which this was Not. But in and of itself it was a good book.
We do listen almost weekly. My son (age 9) surprisingly loves it. Its a great little story.
Great story. Nothing offensive. Humphrey the hamster really enjoys learning with the children in his class. and has adventures, too.
I personally enjoyed how Humphrey goes home with each child including the teacher and we get a glimpse as teachers as real people. Something young kids don't really think about.
Yes, the story keeps moving smoothly.
No, just that this is a first of many for my family.
My 9 year old son definitely would!! He LOVED it! What's not to love? Farting, diareah and Zombies! Everything a growing boy needs.
This is our first, I don't know if I can handle another.
He was cute, he sounded like Erkel. haha
I think this title says it all.
As you can probably figure out, this book wasn't for me. But young pre-teen boys will love it.
I'm not sure. the story was ridiculous in the extreme. It had my head spinning. It lost my son's (age 9) attention. But I enjoyed it.
Very strange story. It had no rhyme or reason. Not really disappointing so much as just non- sensical.
No particular scene. Kate Winslet just took the whole experience to the next level. I think I may have given up were it not for her reading Loved her!!
It did make me laugh because it was SO crazy!
No, but I will definitely look out for more books read by Kate.
This was a pretty good story. Short and sweet. a female version of A Christmas Carol.
I just loved the overall feeling of suspense. And it just grows and grows. I had to turn my IPod off a few times because of the building tension.
I think the female lead. I was easy to sympathise with her plight. and I thought, "what would I do if I were in her shoes?"
I did not personally "read" the book. But I think Lorna Raver id a great job. she represented all characters very well.
I couldn't. like I said. The elevating tension was too much for me!
no, just this was a great book. And listen with the lights on!
I liked everyting about the book. It was part history, part mystery and part love story.
I can't think of any book off hand that's quite like this one. At least not in the African American genre. Nothing that gives the reader so many different angles.
I liked the narrator. He spoke clearly and concisely. he almost over ennuciated his words. but that's ok. I'd rather have that than slurring his words.
I'm not sure. But I could definately see this as a film.
This is a author and a story-line I will definately follow.
I really wanted to like this book. I Really did. I've looked for another story by this author after reading "A drowned maiden's tale". I Loved that book. It hooked me from page one. So I was ready for more.
Was that a fluke, or this book a glitch? I Don't know.
All I know was that this book was really overwrought. So heavy handed. And after hours of listening and re-winding, I still don't know what the heck, is going on!
From flashes of a "witch" to a demonic puppet-master, to a lonely girl who lost here siblings to a terrible food poisoning. This story was all over the place. I just gave up.
Better luck next time. I still haven't given up on Schultz.
A very Short, but sweet love story.
Alex served with Jasalyn's brother in Iraq. He returns physically intact, but with PSDS. She picks him up at the airport, there's instant chemistry. But due to his emotional state, and the fact that his father is a blatant bigot, he's hesitant to pursue her.
I must have blinked. But I have no idea how everything was OVERCOME but they fall in love and get married. the End.
Oh Well. I never like to give the whole story away. But for $2.99 you ether will buy it or you won't. It's basically a pleasant time waster.
The only thing I would change was the would be the exchange between the characters. The story changes points of view between Ellen, the hyptnotist. Who is now involved with Patrick, and Saskia, Patrick's ex who is now stalking him.(Saskia even goes as far as to become a secret patient of Ellen's practice.)The narrator never says "Saskia" or "Ellen" so the listener never knows who's talking at the time. She just glides from person to person. So I had to listen closely to figure out who is talking. This made the story hard to follow and annoying, for almost the first half of the story. Until the characters really developed.
I think the biggest momment is when Saskia breaks into Ellens home in the night and the big confrontation. Up until then, Saskia always kept her distance.Except for being her secret patient, of course, And this was a big turning point in the story.
I liked the story as a whole. These are two women that I had an immediate empahy with. They're real, and failible. With real insecurities. Two girls that otherwise would probably be friends. As I stated before, I just didn't like how the reader slide from one character to the other without a pause.
Maybe, I would love the find out what happened to Saskia, and if she actually finds a love of her own.
Overall, a good story. Just listen closely.
