A lot of fun facts, in amusing prose and read in a lively way, about Christmas and its various tropes.
I'm a fan of this series, but this installment was WAY below par. The mystery is disjointed and rather dull. Temperance Brennan has turned into an adolescent idiot. And the NARRATOR.... oh, dear. The narrator has a slow, nasal speech pattern and timid, girlish delivery style that's totally unsuited to the material. She also has so little variation in her voice that it's often hard to tell which character is speaking.
Another good Reichs book, also good reading.
Good reading of another good Reichs novel.
Pretty good basic audio-language course for getting some words and phrases.
This is the second of the four witty, elegant mystery novels that the late Sarah Caudwell wrote. The book is a great favorite of mine, and the reading in this audio version is delightful.
I tried several quick Hebrew audio courses, just to get a few basic words and phrases, while working in Jerusalem for a few months last. I thought this was the weakest and most confusing of them, I don't recommend it.
Absolutely delightful novel, and a terrific reading.
It's a very enjoyable book, so it's worth hearing the whole thing, rather than an abridged version. Also, the reading in this version is a bit flat.
This novel is an old favorite of mine, and I've listened to two different audio versions of it (including this one).... neither of which is nearly as good as just reading it yourself.
I'm an organized person, and even I wanted to keel over with exhaustion listening to the author laboriously list the gazillion complicated tasks, which she describes as "simple, easy, and few," that she insists you must undertake as a basic, effortless financial lifestyle. The advice seems sound enough, but the exact same advice is found in many other volumes that do NOT misleadingly claim to offer advice that -simplifies- the financial life of a very busy person.
