This one isn't quite as good as " Dont Answer the Door" but it was pretty good
Ohh! His voice is just right for this series. Just spooky enough to make the kids want to cuddle up close, but not scary enough for nightmares.
I could see this as a cartoon short.
NO. just keep them coming. I like the message of safety first behind each story. And the way the author invites the listeners to finish the story.
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.
I don't know if I could listen again. It was a wonderful book. But, it really cut me deep. As a mother I could really empathize with the wife.
There were so many, I don't know if I could choose just one. I think the one moment that got to me, was when the family takes the trip. The author lulls you into thinking that , perhaps, everything I'll turn out OK for this family. And then....Wow.
Definitely Andy. Here was a man who had to carry this devastating family secret. He lives in denial all the while trying to defend his son that's been accused of murder. You can just feel his tension.
Once again, Andy. Though the convicted Grandfather is a compelling character, as well.
Read this book. It really stays with you. As a parent, it had me thinking "What would I do in these people's shoes?"
It was a compelling story. But due the narration, it was not a good listen. I found myself listening to her stumble and mumble through this so much that I was distracted from the story.
I enjoyed the drama of the growing relationship and the suspense of would they get caught and if so would they survive the discovery.
Too much stumbling over her words. She read for both parts and she actually sounded better as the guy(?). Also, I blame the sound editors, they should have caught a lot of her mishaps. There was even an instance where a sentence was repeated.
Yes, but please do not use this narrator again.
No. Just a good book ruined:-(
The Drama continues! This story picks up 3 or 4 years from the previous story. But they can be read independently. The 2 narrarators really bring life and attitude to the characters, and their over-the-top antics. The storyline kept me cracking up and wondering "What's next?"
This is definitely a keeper and I will continue to follow this author. The only thing that made me mad, was Trinette's reconcilliation with her husband. Huh!? Is he crazy? Had me shaking my head in amazement.
This is always a hard question to answer, as I have read so many and diverse books through Audible. But I would rank it pretty high for this type of book. I was surprisingly pleased by this purchase.
I think Trinette was one of my favorites. You could definitely understand why she behaved the way she did, even though she was in a very vicious cycle. She was trying to overcome her past abuse by using in her words "the power of the p****" She was so determined to be "In Control" that she was losing control.
They really individualized the characters. You knew who was speaking just by the timber and attitude they gave.
I'll admit, I definitely laughed out loud and I did mist up a bit in parts. The scene with Trinette and her mother really got to me.
This ones a KEEPER. Trust and Believe I plan to go back and read the previous books as well.
I may have missed something, as I have not read the previous books. But,I don't think I'll be going back to read them. I don't know, but it just didn't ring true. One sister turns up being two? I know one is supposed to suspend reality, but really.
No. I'll just choose more wisely. Live and Learn.
First time, and probably last.
Yes I can. Just not one I would watch.
Short stories based on the adventures of Harry, an intellegent and mischievious second grader. He tries to play it tough and scary, but he really is a good guy underneath it all. Good for a chuckle. And it opens up some situations for learning to deal with difficult people.
Was this a sample? It drew me into the story, then it just ends. What a tease.
No, just super short stories.
She really brings the children to life, without sounding all squeaky, as most adults sound.
Well, it began alright. But then it just, ENDED.
Eh, it had potential.
Yes. loved his dry humor.
The short where he's waiting for the actor to ask what he did for living. Sad, and SO funny.
A very dry, tongue and cheek humor. I don't usually enjoy authors reading their own work. They tend to sound so self-conscience. Not so here.
I can't really imagine this book as a film. Perfect as is.
I will definitely look for more work by Jon Ronson.
