It is one of my very favorite, both narrators are fantastic and the storytelling is great. The way the story unravels and the two parts fit together is makes it very interesting. I stayed up late and woke up early to finish it.
The Guernsey Literary & Potato Peel Pie Society, because it is a story of WW2 told differently, more of a character study, and despite the tragic conditions there is humor and warmth.
I love the stories of Maddie & Julia's developing friendship, when they ride bikes into the countryside, and their adventures at the airbase before their mission.
The name is perfect!
While this is classified as a YA novel, as an adult I loved it. I highly recommend it!
Yes on Robert Gandt and no to Thomas Block. It was a good thing this was a thriller because it kept me listening despite the terrible narration. Listen to the audio sample first. I wish I'd read it instead.
This was my first.
His female voices are awful, and since the president is a woman he has to do that frequently. He had other characters that he basically voiced as grumble grumble grumble, so I'd have to go back to understand.
Never run for president!
I don't listen to mysteries twice
This was well edited to really keep the tension going. Several times it gave me the heeby jeebies!
Tempy, I like her determination.
The climax was quite thrilling and scary.
The unabridged had many bad reviews, so I decided to give this version a chance. The narrator did a great job, handled all the french words with ease. Pleasant voice and good with multiple characters. I really felt like this was a tight, thrilling mystery. Not for the squeamish as some of the autopsy details are gorey.
I might give Aaron Stanford another chance, but I find Emma Galvin's voice annoying. Probably not Veronica Roth.
The first was great and then it just went downhill. She came up with this interesting premise in the first novel and just couldn't support it with the backstory and it's fallen apart.
Less whiny on the part of Emma Galvin
Disappointment, Boredom, The pace was slow, the characters immature.
It began to be so unbelievable that these two teens are the center of everything. Also I cannot stand the word abnegation. I never want to hear it again. I skipped about 15 chapters in the middle. Skip to chapter 49 and you'll get the whole dramatic climax and twist (and the ridiculously short wrap-up).
I can't understand why this still has such a high rating on audible.
Sam & Meredith's conversations, yoga love scene
Sam of course
Great writing, interesting premise, but this is a full box of kleenex novel!
