I loved this book. I found it intriguing, sweet and bittersweet, and sad and joyous. My imagination was totally taken over and I felt as though I was taken on a interesting adventure with the characters. Audrey Niffenegger's descriptive writing on her characters' surroundings really hit home to me. I live in Chicago - born and raised. I enjoyed her placing me in the various neighborhoods and sites (Hyde Park, Lincoln Park, Art Institute, etc.). Yes, it was a very lovely love story and an adventure.
Excellent read! Great mystery and story! Loved the way the main characters matured throughout the story and the trilogy!
Ienjoyed this book. It was my first F. Paul Wilson book and I am looking forward to getting the rest of the Repairman Jack series. Very exciting and moved well. Hurry Audible --- get the rest recorded! :)
I loved this book. Larsson's approach to involving the reader in the pages was so well done, I could feel the chill of the weather and the cold of the small cottage Mikael stayed on the Vanger estate. I loved the way he masterfully pulled us one way and then another way, keeping us thinking - and unpeeling all the layers of his characters. I actually downloaded the movie from iTunes and enjoyed it very much. The movie is a little different from the book, but cannot be matched with an American version. (IMHO)
But the audiobook was excellent! I had difficulty turning off my iPod.
I loved Diana Gabaldon's writing style to this story! I have read the reviews that "poo-poo'd" this book and I disagree with them. Had I taken these reviews seriously --- I would have missed this previous one and the rest of the series! I have read many of Bujold books, Kim Harrison, Lincoln Child, Neil Gaiman, Steven King, Shakespeare, Koontz, to name a few - and I am NOT disappointed with with Gabaldon's style! I have no demands or expectations on an author's style. This would not be fair. But I did open my mind to this book and enjoyed it all. So my I enoyed --- that I bought all the rest. I am waiting the next one now that I have completed "An Echo in the Bone". My thumbs up. I love the way I am lulled into the characters' lives, thoughts, and feelings. I feel as though I am part of the family. I recommend.
Excellent character development, plot, conflicts, and outcomes!
This is my first Picoult book and I loved it. Found it extremely interesting. It asks allot ot questions, challenges your morality, sense of right/wrong, and you get to feel and hear each of her character's point of view. I was disappointed with the ending, but I understand why this ended in this manner. Through this entire book, the characters ended up coming back to their humanity. For one of the main characters, she wasn't able to recover - but healed in a different direction. I will definitely pick a few more of her books! This one was a great read.
I really liked this one. It was interesting, captivating, mysterious, and different. An interesting idea looking at souls, twins, and what we are willing to do in moments of desperation. Also I found the relationships between the characters interesting and surprising as well. Ahhh . . . what and who we will betray and settle for - to attain something desired.
Loved this one! It was difficult to put down. Loved the way characters were presented and found the concept of the dome a very interesting mystery.
Conroy's excellent work again! I love the mysteries of the different characters, the interactions, the complications, etc. So interesting and involved. I love the cultural differences that each group brings, such as the South, Catholicism, Racial, Gay, etc. The story unravels and ravels, uncovers, discovers each and everyone. I love that I feel each character's happiness, hurt, love, hate, wanting and needing. Excellent.
Accolates to Boujold!
Boujold has done it again! Another great addition! And I love this series! I enjoyed her Miles Vorkosigan novels and I do hope there is still more to come from this also!
The Sharing Knife series is so warm, touching, interesting, cultural, exciting, and involved - we readers come to know the characters and their lives as if we are there in the story.
I can't wait for the next one!
I very much enjoyed this one! It took me some time to understand why he jumped from the present to another time, but it came together nicely into the story. I found it difficult to stop listening to. I put my iPod on while I ironed, washed dishes, besides the normal listening in the car t work. I very much like the direction Gaiman is taking in his writing.
His characters were always in development from beginning to end. I felt good and bad about Shadow's wife and was very impressed with her character's bravery and love.
