Great book with a baseball theme. You don't need to love baseball but a bit of knowledge on how the game is played would help. I enjoy books that are about interesting people and families, we can all learn fron these type of stories. This one teaches us that the love from a parent is not guaranteed, and that respect is something that is earned.
I listened to this about 2 weeks ago and had to sit here awhile to remind myself what it was about again. Not a memorable story at all. Not bad, just not anything to recommend. Glad it was a free short story.
The reader did a fantastic job on this one. I felt the character of the book was really talking to me. As my title suggests, I did enjoy this book, but I'm not sure I understand it. I felt like there was a lot of symbolism being used and that I just didn't get it. Made me feel a bit ignorant I have to admit. I think it may be one of those books that you can read anything into it depending on your background and beliefs. Can't wait to find someone else who has read it so we can discuss. An excellent book for a book club. A bit graphic at times to the point where I don't want to see the movie, I'd probably have to shut my eyes at times.
Read it so we can talk about it please.
The story started out poorly for me as I did not care for the narrator. The tone and sound of the voice did not suit the character and it threw me off. There was nothing about it that kept me wanting to hear more. I finished it as I usually dol even though I may not care for the book. The story line felt immature to me, nothing challenging about it at all. I've read a few of Janet's books before and thoroughly enjoyed them. Would not recommend this one.
Another great Jack Reacher story. The story was a bit complicated and as usual you could not predict the outcome. There were a couple of scenes that were somewhat unbelievable and I did find myself thinking "there is no way anyone would come to that conclusion". Doesn't matter though, it was still a good book.
Loved this book, well written and well performed. While listening I felt I was back in England where I recently visited. I could picture everything Harold saw while on his pilgrimage. The best part was my surprise for the reason for the pilgrimage. Listen and you will be as well.
I liked that it was a short story. A good Sherlock Holmes story but not something I would normally read/listen to.
