If this had been my first Patricia Wentworth read, it would be my last. This is my forth Miss Silver novel. I don't know if it was that there were too many characters, or if it was the convoluted storyline. But, I could sympathize with none of the characters. I had to make myself finish the story, and I had to re-start the story I don't know how many times. Halfway to the end I didn't know what was going on, and I didn't care
No, not one of her best.
Not a thing. a delightful read.
The most interesting thing was the VERY modern view the author took on the time. The way it dealt with women in the church and homosexuality.
I think it would be Phryne. She has strength, beauty, charm and cash to back it up.
Hum. A mini-series would be interesting.
I think this series is worth exploring.
This was a good story, but not for me. It was like a boy's grown-up fantasy. Regular guy gets to fight monsters AND get the girl.
Um, nothing really. There's a lot of muscle flexing and weaponry. Not really a "girl's story" It had some fun moments, but.....
The main character was pretty cool. Very "aw shucks" type, and kinda sexy, in an understated way.
Yes, get a "chic-lit" book. haha
This was a good story, for the right audience. Lots of action, monsters and fun!!!
I would definitely recommend it! I only for the very twisted ending
No, this is my first.
Stock up on canned meat!!
This story left me reeling. You just don't know who to trust, or how far someone will go to fulfill a social experiment.
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.
