This is an amazing book that opens up a whole new way of thinking about fear. I'f you have children, it's a must read; along with protecting the gift by the same author. The authors practical good sense approach to this suject of fear, feels right. Any reader ever faced with real danger in their lives will instantly understand that he understands. Time and money well spent.
I found both the story and the reader to be far above my expectations. This is a cracking good story that will hold you spell bound; I loved it. My wife also loved this rather lovely love story about a selfless young woman who finds that giving back a little kindness rewards her for a lifetime. Stephen
This book was written for the movie screen in mind and does not translate well to being read as a stand alone book. It's so corny it's almost funny, but not quite. I listened to it all, but did not enjoy it. A poorly written story all told.
This is a wonderful tale told wondefully. It is also read wonderfully. It took me a while to keep track of all the characters, as it is so long, but the reader made that possible by having a different voice for each one. It was a great read and I'm glad i bought it.
If you don't mind offcolor humor and poorly disguised inuendos as well as some up front dirty talk this is your book. I was disappointed. I tried to listen to it, but just couldn't bear the gutter thought that went into it; wish I had not bought it.
This is beyond doubt the crowning achievement by Sabatini. The reader does an outstanding job with every character, as well as the challenges of language. I have listened to this book more times than I can remember and have enjoyed it every time. If you like history, and you like romantic saga's, you will love this book. Sabatini was a historian that could and did write his readers into an era right down to the idioms of the day and the buckles on the shoes. Enjoy!
This book is the result of the writer's terrible opinion of her fellow man, it is positively depressing. The longer I listened to it the more negative I realized the writer was determined to make the reader feel. It just goes on and on with a harrowing tale about two extremely sick human beings. The Question remained in my mind long after the tale was told: "why tell it at all?" I never got the point.
