Virtually no difference in character voice pitches accents and such. Just so grated on my nerves I finally said NO MORE. Out of the nearly three hundred books my app says I have in my library, most of which are romances, I can only think of three to five times this has happened. Author was not finished with the plot set up, but the early writing seemed relatively amateurish. This is one to avoid.
A friend recommended this book to me when I spoke of trying to learn to trust God more in my daily life. This book was very humbling as time and time again experiences in how God met needs was shared. I was challenged not only in how I approach my finances but in how I handle my prayer life and the time I spend with God daily. If you are a Christian you cannot go wrong in using a credit for this book.
I am somewhat ambivalent on this question. I enjoyed listening to one of the early efforts by a favorite author. However, like many early works, it is not up to the standards of this author's efforts in the last ten to fifteen years. It is not a story that really held my interest and is not one I want to listen to ten or more times as I have some of her others.
Oh definitely. As mentioned above, I could tell that this was a very early work by a favorite author and someone who is one of the best authors in the romance genre.
Get this on sale if curious about Krentz development as an author. However, don't expect too much.
4 stars is because much of what happened to this man is not enjoyable and up-lifting. It is not always easy to hear of the horrible things that this man survived in the war. However, this is one of those books that is important to keep listening to because these are just the sort of things humans are capable of in the right circumstances. More than that the story of all that was survived suggests how the human spirit will respond and strike back or survive in spite of the worst sort of abuse.
He strikes just the right tone to narrate with documentary precision often leaving me on the edge of my seat.
Too many to name just one.
This is one of those books that I think ought to be required reading for history of WWII. Here we scratch the surface of war crimes in the Pacific Theatre and reasons for the dropping the atomic bombs which are so little appreciated not even 75 years later.
An excellent story. Set in a historical time period many have written about, the plot line itself is unlike anything I have read before. Kleypas has the skill necessary to pull off this uncommon story line and keep the romance alive throughout.
This was a fun book in spite of its of its focus on the heroine's divorce and recovery from it.
I really enjoyed the newsletter she sends to the friends, family and clients of her soon to be ex.
Recovery form divorce and a cheating spouse is not as easy as this makes out and many won't like the whole premise. However, if you can suspend disbelief and enjoy the characters, who are really fairly well drawn, this is a book that can make for a very enjoyable listen.
This was a wonderful story. It was more than just a mindless romance, I felt as though I entered the heroine's life watching as things fell apart and came back together again in a way she never expected. The relationships that are sketched for us (from a mother recovering from a divorce to an acquaintance from high school who becomes a friend) all help to texturize this book with far more to satisfy the imagination than most in the genre. Well worth a credit in my mind.
I felt like I was meeting a set of friends in this book. Entertaining with a nice romance at the center, while dealing with some issues I and friends face every day. It is a wonderful listen and Virgin River proves to be a great place to visit again and again. I'm a little over half way through this 17 book series. So far they have all proved credit worthy and worth a return listen.
Yes, I will almost certainly be listening to this one again. It is so funny and entertaining. When I sought out this book it was just the perfect comedic touch I needed on a rough day.
Get your daily dose of laughs.
This is a fantastic must read for anyone who seeks to defend Christ in this modern era. Zacharias ably defends Biblical Christianity in a way few in this era can do. He challenges the "Spirituality" that is being mass marketed and even admits where the Church has failed in recent years. This is not light listening and is one I will undoubtedly listen to several times and may ultimately seek a printed version as well.
Listened to this one for the fourth or fifth time this weekend and still enjoyed it. The story starts to flesh out some of how society is changing as the industrial revolution is underway contrasting entrepreneurs with traditional aristocracy. Annabelle and Simon are wonderfully memorable characters. The supporting cast sets up the Wallflowers Series very nicely. If you enjoy the idea of getting lost in a world filled with ballrooms, beautifully gowned women and an alpha male staking his claim this should be on your download list.
