Being told up front this was just the first book in a two book series. The characters in the book just seem to whine about their problems. It seems that is what the whole book about. There is an interesting concept with time travel, but these characters just don't seem to get it at all. Throught the story they just wander around, whining about their problems, and wishing for someone to come help them. Not a good story, and through in some really bad characters and you don't have a good book.
Its very good. The series makes it work. He's worth investing the time in.
Noir....It's classic. He gets a job, he has all kinds of problems, he solves a different problem, and he never gets the girl. In between that he's conflicted, and just getting through the day.
Once started you just won't stop
Its in the top tier. Great story, good characters, and the humor just made me laugh out loud. It reminds me of Hitchers Guide.
He sold the story for me. The characters come alive, easy to listen too. He adds emotion and feeling to the story, without letting himself intrude.
Laugh. Its a very fast moving, over the top, fun story.
It is a very good history lesson. Lincoln was a great man, and a great President. How he managed it all is explained, at least in part, in this book. The political wisdom and methods used by Lincoln, and explained in this book, are valuable today. It is well written, interesting, well narrated, and highly informative. Can't beat that. I highly recommend this book.
The characters are very interesting and well portrayed. I was mesmerized by the story. Extremely well written, and the narrator does an excellent job. You shouldn't miss this one.
Hamish is a great character. Nothing like the normal hero, he's just a guy doing the best he can despite all the problems tossed at him by the people around him. I can believe that these are real people, and have real emotions. And it's very funny. I highly recommend it.
For just plain fun, it's hard to beat Stephanie Plum. Great naration, good story, hard to turn it off. She will have you sitting in the parking lot listening.
