Southern Lights ranks in the upper 25% of the other audiobooks I have listened to so far.
I love a good story about a good mother daughter relationship. This one was very good. I loved the description of the shopping sprees in Charleston and the ones in Europe.
Nick did a very good performance with this book. He didn't try to get into one of those disgusting voices that so many other readers do. He was straight forward and verbally told the story. Good job Nick!
My extreme reaction with this book was the relationship between the grandmother, mother and daughter. Three generations of love, respect and mutual uderstanding between three strong women. Didn't laugh or cry, but smiled a lot.
I have always loved books with women lawyers who are no non sense, smart and competient. Women who do what they have to do and do it well. This book had all of these qualities. Good job Danielle.
I have only heard the audio version and cannot believe it could be made better
Being a dog lover, I loved the way that 'Christmas' helped to heal the wounded heart of the dad. He had 'bad luck' with dogs in the past, but it took the special love and understanding of 'Christmas' to heal and nourish the soul, as dogs tend to do.
His voice was loving and caring in just the right places
Oddly enough I felt that Mary Ann, mother of her special needs son as well as wife had that special knowledge to work with both men and let the story play out. She knew when to keep quite and let her husband work through his demons with his boyhood dog and the one in Viet Nam.
I love dog stories and this one is loving and positive in the best ways.
No, more like the game of Dungeons and Dragons
I would only recommend this to someone who likes fantasy books. I reminded me in the old game of Dungeons and Dragons. Not what I like to read or listen to.
dull, duller and dullest
For me this was enough
If you like this kind of story you might like this, but not me.
Yes, there is a lot of thing going on and it moves pretty fast as all of his adventures do.
Yes, there were so many twists and turns that you really have to listen to catch all of them.
Really nothing. I don't like his voice or intonations.
The plot amazed me as always, Lee Child must do a lot of research for his books. I am always amazed at some point during the book 'how on earth is Jack going to get out of this?' But he always does. This is only one of the reasons I like this series so much,
Hope that there are many more Jack Reacher books coming. So many plots and so many solutions.
i use the audio versions while driving so I enjoy it better.
Yes, Dan Brown writes so well and the action is so non stop that it is hard to stop as the story progresses. The plot was very good, having spent time in Florence, I could visually see the places in my mind. Then the other locations were so well described that it was very enjoyable.
The heroine was very real to life and a very dynamic character.
Yes, when the heroine stopped the boat and came back to tell Langdon of her complete involvement in the entire story with the virus,
The Bioethical issues in this book were intriguing and are on the front burner to many people. Good job discussing them.
I have only heard the audio version, have not read the printed version
Loose ends were tied up from previous books. Laying the ground for future books.
Dont think so. Harry's voice makes him sound like a gangster, not an ole' seasoned policeman.
I was surprised at the beginning of the book and had to double check that it was a Harry Bosch book. However, I did enjoy the book. You just have to get into it for a few chapters to figure how the book is going.
This is not the Harry Boush book that you expect. The focus of the book, former FBI agent McCalab, is the real star in this book. Harry is a secondary part of the book. McCalab is from another of the series where he has received a heart and discovers people who murder for organs for transplant.
However, I feel this is one of those 'bridge books' during a series, that links and ties up ends so the next book can be written. Especially, since in future books McCalab dies under unusual circumstances and Harry solves that 'murder'. So don't be put off because this is written with McCalab as the lead story,
The writer took so very long to say anything and to move the story along.
She could have moved the story along faster and that would have helped a lot.
His voice was okay, the right accent for the location of the story, but he could have been more animated with his voice.
Ths book sparked disappointment for me. Have read other Tana French books and they were better.
Needs action and a different writer perhaps
The story was so very boring, I went in and steam cleaned my bedrooms, came out and couldn't see that I had missed anything with the time I has been out of the room.
His performance was the only shinning light of the book. It was okay.
None that I could fine
This is definitely a book to return.
Cut the horse bloodlines and family history since the 1800s
Made a very boring boo the best it could be.
They probably were all necessary.
Unless you are a historian for the bloodlines of race horses, the first 4-5 chapters will put you to sleep as they did me. Then the family history back many generations I don't think was necessary. Loved the movie, the book NO. Boring and will return the book.
I would recommend this audiobook to a friend because it shows many sides to George Washington that you might not know. It also showed how he interacted with the other Founding Fathers.
I liked the style the author used, from the beginning to the end of the book. Learned about how wealthy George Washington was before the Revolutionary War and then, like the signers of our Constitution, had very little left afterwards. We as a country should understand what our freedoms cost our Founding Fathers and what they gave up for our Nation. I have had many hours of college History and Political Science, but didn't know many things that were brought out in this book.
George Washington of course.
My extreme reaction to this book was basically, having more respect for our First President than before. He was a business man and a man to be admired before and after the Revolutionary War. Some unanswered questions about his personal life, but with what he gave our country, who cares about perhaps a few character flaws. He was a true gentleman and had many strong feelings for what he believed in.
We Americans have a great legacy to uphold with what these men and women gave for our country and was to our way of government. I hope we have the same faith and moral grounds to keep this country going as our Founding Fathers and Mothers did. I hope we can give future generations the same form of government that so many have died for to give to us,
British paranormal agents
Methany was my favorite character because she was the one that everything happened to. She came through it like a champ.
I enjoyed Susan Duerden's performance because she definitely had the accent and pronouncation that made the story real
My reaction to this book was that it reminded me of the Harry Potter series. With all the paranormal things happening, it was sorta like wondering what would happen next, only to be shown.
Anyone reading this book should be forewarned that there is a lot of jumping back and forth from what happened before Methany's memory was lost and to the 'present day' events of the book.
