Overall the book had an intersting story line and the narrator was very good. However, the quick wrap up at the end ruined it for me. The story was going very well until the last hour or so then everything just seemed to be kicked into high gear, things were resolved and the happy ending complete. If the author would have just taken her time like she did the rest of the story it would have been a much more enjoyable listen.
Great Narrator - Great series!! Monica writes highland love stories like no one else. Her mix of fact & fiction is fantastic!!!
I loved this book and I am looking forward to the rest of the series. The narrator was great and the story line kept me interested for the entire time. I have seen the series on TV but it cannot compare to the book. I highly recommend this to anyone who just loves a great story.
The book was well narrated but told me nothing new or "mind blowing". Basic behavior modification with brain development rolled in. Not bad information but nothing really useful.
I really liked the overall premise of this story. Jackson told all about his life and his struggles and how his cat changed his world view and his view of himself as part of the world. The only thing that frustrated me about this book was the almost constant use of metaphors it really took away from what he was trying to say. VERY DISTRACTING but worth wading through in the end.
I have listened to other novels by Charles Dickens & loved them but I just could not finish this one. The narrator was OK but at times I felt like I was listening to a book written in a foreign language. The English of the time period in which this book was written is so different from the English spoken in America today that I really did not know what the characters were taking about. I simply got board and frustrated and could not finish the book.
I loved this book and was very sad when it ended. I did not like the ending however it really leaves you wanting more. I actually thought something was wrong with the download and the ending was cut off. The characters are wonderful and the story made you feel like you knew them each personally. The audio was poor and the volume kept changing at times the voice of Gus was so loud it hurt my ears then everything got very soft. The narrator was wonderful but the poor audio quality was frustrating. However it would take more than that to ruin this story. I would highly recommend this book to everyone it's got romance, drama and action. You will never want the story to end.
I have already listened to this book twice and I am about to listen again. I also ordered the book and I have read it as well. It has so much to offer a marriage. I also got my husband to listen to it and we are going to use the written book to complete the suggested assignments at the end of each chapter. It has already begun to improve my marriage just by listening. Dr. Chapman's books offer the Christian an excellent resource for a better more Christ filled & happy life.
I have listened to a lot of these kinds of stories and most can hold my interest. However this one did not. The narrator was good but the story line was so predictable that I could not even finish the book. I got board. The sex in the book was also to graphic for me and I think it was a failed attempt to make the story more interesting. For me it ruined what little the story had. Even though I did not finish the book I have no doubt about the ending. My main thought about the book was as I stated before PREDICTABLE.
I bought this book because I liked the movie & it did not disappoint. If you liked the movie you will love the book. Alice Walker did a great job as narrator.
Narrator was great as usual. The story line was very interesting and was easy to listen too. It had a little humor and mystery add into the love story which made the book well worth the credit.
