Joe's character and dialogue were too over the top. Same with the kings plot. Seems like the series jumped the shark with this one. Performance was very good as always.
Sucks you in on an unfamiliar topic and holds you. Beautifully written. Great ending.
I haven't read Jodi Picoult for a while. Now I need to go back and see what I've missed.
This may have been the best listen I've had on audible. I've been a member for many years and it's right up there for sure.
Complicated and I had a hard time maintaining interest. It did get better in the second half. I liked the first installment of this series better.
Beautifully written and narrated as always, but the story was just too melencholy and far fetched. A downer of a listen. I was hoping for something more lighthearted after the conspiracy stuff was finally put to bed. The leaps in deduction were also unbelievable in multiple places.
Loved this installment. A little lighter. I actually laughed out loud twice at some of the dialogue. The story kept me interested throughout, and the narration was excellent.
Good as always from two of my favorites. Well researched and interesting plot. Very creative in the details with lots of twists. My complaint is that the main character - Gideon - follows along too blindly throughout the book. Just too out of character and makes it less engaging. Performance was very good.
Wow hard to get through, but in the end I think it is worth it. Narration was great and it was beautifully written. One of the first times I think an abridged version might have been better though. The scenes dragged on and on and on. While it was beautiful, I found myself tuning out. Also just too much despair and depressing throughout (just my personal preference). It was hard for me to sit through the darkness surrounding most of the story.
I still give it a good rating because I think it was well done, and the ending was not predictable.
Great job on all fronts. Story keeps you guessing, the characters are so much fun, and the narration was excellent as always. Love that "Bleeping Flowers"
But it feels like it is in search of a real story. Rice is an absolute master at describing The amazing worlds and surroundings of her creatures. That remains true here.
I am a huge Rice fan. I've read virtually everything and wait for each new book to come out. For the first time, I felt the proportion of background description to the actual story felt a off-balance. The story moves from one extensively descriptive scene to the other. The story line itself seems much less important. It almost feels like this book is just a set up for another in the series.
I was hoping for resolution to at least one or two of the situations set up in the story. But I did not get ithat by the end. It just stopped abruptly with multiple threads unresolved. I'm such a big fan that I will wait for the next installment to get the answers.
I really liked this book. I immediately wanted more. Would make a great series. The main characters are all interesting. They were developed well, but you could see it go so much further.
Excellent narration as well.
