A fascinating book on the art world and human nature. It is amazing the influence one person can have on others.
The topic is very interesting. However, the author included a lot of suppositions about what people thought. It didn't come across as well researched.
The narrator mispronounced foreign words and her timing was off.
These comments are based on two hours of listening. Be sure to listen to the book before purchasing.
The sexual portions of the book were mere descriptions of what was happening. There was no mention of the emotional or physical reactions. The narrator's style was also clinical, lacking inflection. The sexual aspects of the book were said in the same tone as everything else. NOTE: I couldn't finish listening to the story.
Not without previewing the story
Her delivery didn't change even when reading the sexual part of the book.
I can't answer this fairly because I didn't finish listening to the story.
I have already listened to this book several times. The characters and story line kept my interest.
Each book focuses on one member of the band and is told from that person's perspective. The books should be read in order as the books build upon each other and cover some previous story line but told from another character's perspective. By the end of the series, I felt that I really knew these people. For some unknown reason, books 1,2,3, and 5 are currently available. Book 4 has an August 2013 release date.
The information contained in the audio book is very comprehensive, but I found the audio book format ineffectual for learning the material. I did a lot of rewinding in order to grasp the concepts. I finally stopped listening. Make sure to check out the narrator before purchasing. She spoke too quickly for me.
I loved this book. It was refreshing to hear an Agatha Christie novel that I hadn't ready seen on tv and with new characters. I was kept guessing until the end.
I found this book to be very repetitive especially with second part of the book being recycled material. The recycled bits were just thrown into this book without any consideration of deleting material already covered. There were a few interesting parts, but not enough to recommend this book to someone - or to listen to it again.
For me, this book did not translate well into in an audio book. There were too many characters to keep track of, especially since I listened over a four-day period.
