First of all if you have not read Secrets of the Seventh Son do not read this one first! I did read Book of Souls first and I throughly enjoyed it but realized that if I had read the first book first I would have "caught on" much sooner. It was a little trying jumping back into the past then forward into the future but once I understood why Mr. Cooper was doing this the book came together for me. This is my first read with Glenn Cooper and I loved his style. I am now going to read Secrets of the Seventh Sons. The narration was great too. I would highly recommend this one AFTER you read Seventh Sons.
Couldn't even get all the way thru this one so can't tell you if it got better or not. It was so terrible I could only listen to about 1/2 of it. The reader was boring and monatone which only added to the dullness of this book. Story line right from the beginning reminded me of the old movie " the body snatchers". Don't waste your money on this one.
I did NOT enjoy this book at all. If I had to hear one more EMAIL To: Christian Gray From: Annastasia OMG It was enough to rip your hair out. I have heard that the other books are just as bad with the emails. One or two of them in a row would have been tolerable, but it just went on and on and on and the "Oh My" and "Later Babe". If it wasn't for the "other" graphics of the book I would have thought a 10 year old wrote it. For Anna to be so "unexperienced" she sure caught on quickly. Was not a good read and, not a good story and not a good performance.
Mocking Jay was just disorganized. It went fast and then slow and slow parts were really slow. Did no hold my inerest at all like the first of the two series. Just all over ther place but had to read to finish the series.
Ok, I wanted to know what all they hype was about so I reluctantly downloaded "The Hunger Games". I went in with a bad attitude just knowing I would not enjoy but to my surprise I was glued to it from the first page. I have never found myself listening to a book so fast. It is a MUST for ALL ages. I am in my 60's and enjoyed every chapter. I thought it might be a "Harry Potter" type read but it was definetly not. GET IT, LISTEN TO IT, and ENJOY. Can't wait to download the next book. Did not want it to end!
Finally a Koontz book that I couldn't put down. It grabbed your attention in the first chapter and it continued throughout the rest of the book. There were some "brief" periods of bordem but they were far and few and the rest of the book made up for it. Love it, but most importantly it was believable. "I'm Listening" - spooky. A Koontz must read for sure. Stephen Lang was a great narrator. I definetly would recommend.
I have not read a bad book in a long time but this one was BAD and BORING. Glad it was only 7 hours long. In between each chapter the pause was so long I thought my Ipod had shut off. Don't waste your time with this one.
This was one of James Patterson's best. It was not "unbelievable" was to the point and a fast read.
This book had entirely too many characters in it. Just when you got into one of the characters another one popped up. Book did not flow and was difficult to follow. Would not recommend it.
I actually loved this book. It was a thriller from the start and if you were not familiar with Dt. Bennet it explained all about him again but not in a boring way. Every chapter kepted you wanting to listen to more. I would recommend this has a nice easy listen. Narration was exceptional as well.
Intensity grabbed my attention immediately which is somethiing I love about any book. However, you wanted to shake Chyna throughout the book for beiing so stupid. I didn't like the dog chapter either and actually had to turn off the sound until that was complete. Good read though and would recommend it.
