Another story by Picoult that explores the ethical and moral issues
families face when faced with a traumatic brain injury and brain death in a loved one.
I think Edward was my favorite character because he made some wrong decisions but in the end he matured and fought to make the right decision for the right reason.
All the various narrators were excellent!
The whole book was moving but the stories about the wolf pack and wolf behavior were fascinating.
I used my credit based on the multiple positive reviews. What I discovered was a true story of a truly amazing woman, flawed like the rest of us, but also with amazing courage, integrity, and resolve to do what was right, in unimaginable circumstances. I am so glad I purchased this book, or I never would have known of this amazing story. In our current society, where people tend to worship celebrities, it is so sad that people do not read about true heroism and those people, like Nancy Wake. It is these people, that we should all be aware of, and look up to, as our role models. The story of an amazing woman who saved many during World War II through her work in the French Resistance.
Unbroken, because Nancy never quit, just like Mr Zamperini.
I don't think I would describe it as having scenes, as it was more of a biography.
Many of them,
I thought the narrator did a good job, and her accent was very upperclass British, the way the characters would have spoken.
The historical background and the role that false propaganda played out, not only by the Germans, but by the Brits and the Americans during WWII. The interwoven story line going from 1976 back to 1940 and 41 was also effective.
Probably the young Ava.
I recently saw the miniseries done on the Sundance Channel, and while it was good, the book is much better.
The story starts in Boston, and then moves to Tampa and Cuba. The history was well covered , and as I live in Florida I found the scenes in Tampa and Ybor City especially interesting.
All the characters were well developed, except for the lesser players.
The gangster genre is always difficult in some ways in that most of the characters were amoral, and many are sociopaths, but this makes the moral dilemmas they face, if there is such a thing among thieves, always compelling.
Beware as of course there are many graphic scenes of violence and some sex scenes as well.
Narrator did an amazing job with all the voices. I believe I wouldn't have enjoyed this book nearly as much if I had simply read it.
The relationship between father and son was complex! A crooked cop and gangster son.
I don't usually listen to this kind of book, but was intrigued by all the positive reviews. I have to say the story was unusual and kept my interest. Narrator was excellent. This book ranks in the top 75% of books I've listened to, but is purely entertaining, and not meant to provoke strong emotions, in the way The Kite Runner does.
Difficult to say. It was that different. A cross between Ghost Busters and Dean Koontz.
Probably Viig. Don't know if I spelled that correctly.
Not really. As I said, pure entertainment and non stop suspense.
There surely will be a movie, and I only hope it will follow the book closely.
Defintely better in audio. Narrator excellent.
I would have to say the lead protagonist. The writer really gets you to identify with his struggles and previous childhood.
All of it.
Edge of your seat suspense!
I actually do consider the audio version to be better. The narrator did a wonderful job with the voices. I read this book twice as I loved it so much, but listening brought it to life in a different way.
The history woven through the fabric of the characters lives.
I can't say, as there are too many to chose from.
An epic family drama and romance set in the years leading to the Japanese attack at Pearl Harbor.
One of my favorite books of all time!
I thought this story was entertaining and it also gave me a much better idea of what Dubai is really like. My husband travels there on business, but this book makes me understand much more what this city is all about. East meets West is not always a success.
The overall pacing of the story was well done and the characters, the good guys anyway, were well drawn out. I think the author could have developed the villains motivations more.
Narrator was very good and kept me listening.
The first in a trilogy about the death of Agent Pendergast's wife, Helen. There are so many twists and turns, but those turns are always interesting. Couldn't stop listening.
Agent Pendergast is one of my favorite characters in fiction today.if you have read the authors other books, then you know why.
The narrator voices Pendergast perfectly.
The opening scene with the lion was graphic and unforgettable.
Cold Vengeance is the second book in the trilogy.
One of the best audiobooks I have listened to so far. It was a little slow at first, but after the third chapter I couldn't stop listening. It makes one ponder so many ethical issues.
Dr. Annik Swenson was my favorite character due to her brutal honesty and open ambition and drive.
Narration was very good.
A journey of self discovery and learning what is important in life.
Do yourself a favor and listen to this book.
