This book is an interesting story of courage, strength, strong will, friendship, family, and triumph. Rich has taken a shaken past and turned his life around, doing what he felt was right to redeem himself. I am not sure completing 5 Ironman distance triathlons in 7 days is the ":normal" way of doing this, but it was an interesting experience. It was time well spent for myself, as I enjoyed his story and challenges he overcame to fulfill his dream.
I would only recommend this book to individuals who are thinking of training for an endurance event such as an Ironman or beyond. RIch has an interesting story and his adventures in ultras would on be helpful for those individuals.
I think that Rich Roll performed just fine since he was telling his story. However, I believe it would have been better to cast a narrator with more experience.
Quip, sexy, charming
Lena was sharp, funny, independent, and strong.
Without giving too much away, the last chapter...
The series was fun to listen to. Lead was build around Lena and Jimmy and their relationship and antics. Their banter was funny and Kylie Scott did a great job writing Lena's character. Overall it was hard to put down.
Ordinary girl meets rock star. A Cinderella story is aways fun.
Of course David Ferris. How can you pass up the gorgeous rocker falling for a sweet regular girl.
Andi did a very good job bringing the characters to life.
Partying in Vegas
Yes, if audio is well done, it brings the characters to life.
Without giving too much away...the dance studio.
The dance studio.
Close, maybe 2-3 days.
This is my favorite book of Christina Lauren thus far. She did a wonderful job. However, I would like to have liked to have more detail about her time in Paris, Ansel's mysterious background, and the night they first met.
Magnificent, powerful, thought-provoking
I loved Hazel and Augustus both, and especially together. However, if I were to have to choose, it would be Hazel. She is a character wise beyond her years. She is brilliant, full of humor, courageous, and a beautiful person.
I loved Gus's last words to her, when she receives the email from Amsterdam. Can't give too much away!
Absolutely. I had it finished in less than 24 hours.
John Green has created a powerful and exceptional story! The topic is sad and hard to push through with minimal tears. However, it is sweet, thoughtful, and threaded with life lessons. I love the characters, their humor, and their courage. Kate Rudd is my favorite author and she has brought the characters and words to life....once again!
Yes, this book was written very well and Lee Angel has done a fabulous job bringing it to life.
She brings each character to life. She was able to differentiate between accents, personalities, and emotions.
The characters had a good sense of humor, so they did make me giggle. He had that emotional, hard to put down pull, but it did not bring me to tears.
The lead character became annoying with her perpetual weaknesses.
Luke was a great character, one that you wanted to root for the entire book. The story was a bit weak.
The performance was very average. Not memorable, but did not detract terribly from the book.
Finally, a great narrator. Thank you for bringing Kirby into the mix. He made the last book. I also enjoyed the conclusion to the series.
I have listened to his books. He always does a great job. His performance in this book was consistent with his other books, very good.
The Slams very awesome! Well done!
The series is improving and the writing more interesting. I rank it just below half way down my list.
Will was my favorite character. He is a strong and interesting presence mature beyond his years.
I can't believe this narrator was considered for this book. No inflection, boring, and mild accent took away from the story.
The Slams were intriguing. Very dissatified with the narration. It really hurt the book.
I have listened to her Losing Hope books. They were outstanding! This did not hold up to those standards; however, this could be in part due to the poor narration.
Kate Rudd or Emily Gavin
Not really, but I was intrigued by her Slams.
I was not a huge fan of this series; however, I want to get to the conclusion. I would not recommend this series, but I must admit this is the best of the 3.
