I finished this book today only because I wanted to be honest about finishing it before I reported how awful this book is. This book had the plot to become a good story but the characters and the dialogue managed to drag it into a morass of predictability. Maybe the failure of this book should go to the editor -since the editor should have recognized and fixed all the flaws. I don't believe I will ever again listen to Sandra Brown's books if this is an example of her work. The characters were not developed or engaging and I couldn't become interested or care about any of them. The reader's southern accents were tiring to listen to, not the soft southern accents I grew up with at all. The book within a book concept was okay - in fact the inside book was better. But, don't waste your time reading or listening to this just for that inside book. Go on to something better.
I enjoy the Andy Carpenter series because I like the humor and the reliable story lines.
Grover Gardner has a voice that makes me want to be his best friend.
I liked the story and would recommend it...... but, and this may have been only on my recording, the last few minutes didn't download and the story ended playing before it was finished.
I hadn't heard Simon Vance narrate before. It took me a while to get used to his voice and accent, but found him enjoyable to listen to.
Yes, there are a few lose ends that could be followed.
A story that young adults will love...... adults, not so much.
Probably won't as they are written for young adults.
The experiences in this story seem so real that it seemed like they were taken from real life. I think the narrator did an amazing job.
I don't know if Noah Galvin is a teenager or not. He tells this story like he lived it.
Don't listen to this one until you've heard his first novel, "Power Down". The main character continues his journey in this book. I heard that these are Ben Coes first novels, if so, I think he's doing something right. Enjoyed both stores very much.
All I can say is, WOW, no wonder they were called the greatest generation. What a story of endurance.
Very exciting! And boy what a story plus there's plenty of humor. I've decided DeMille is destined to be one of the best writers of our time.
A funny mystery, a great summer read. Highly recommend it to everyone who likes a good mystery story with some humor to lighten the darkness.
I throughly disliked this book. While it tried to come off as funny, in reality it showed us what pathetic parenting is out there.
Not my usual type of book, but I enjoyed the change. Not sure I would read more of these novels.
