First off let me say I am (or rather was) a huge Chelsea fan! When she is on her A game she is possibly the funniest woman alive. Her previous 3 books have had me laughing out loud and sharing them with all my girlfriends.
This book however is simply a sad attempt at a money grab. It appears as though Chelsea had nothing to do with this book, yet has shamelessly plastered her name and image all over it. Granted the stories are about her (for the most part) but are written by others poorly attempting to emulate her style. Its truly terrible and they should all be ashamed. *Spoiler Alert* One chapter is ‘written by’ Chunk… Yes Chunk. Her dog. Need I say more?
I have never been more annoyed over the complete waste of a credit! I warn you, if you are hoping for classic Chelsea, skip this and just re-enjoy one of her old books.
It was exactly like a Dateline episode. You don't actually know "who dun it" till mid way. And even after that its still fascinating. The start of the story is told through the perspective of the husband in the present day & the wife in journal form.
YES! I really didn't want to stop listening. I would get home after work and continue to listen to this book instead of turning on the tv. For the first whole half of the book you really wonder if Nick (the husband) did do it, or if it was a frame job or if Amy (the wife) just ran off... Gillian Flynn really keeps you guessing.
I feel like I must have. They have great voices and they sound familiar, but I don't associate them with anything specific... Both did great in their performances.
Yes... but with this book you can't give anything away.
This book is worth way more than just a credit. Buy it, you will not regret it!
History, Rome, Power.
As in "Roma" the Fascinus (the winged penis pendant heirloom) is my favorite. Even though it's not exactly a character.
A perfect addition to the book Roma by Steven Saylor.
I bought this series hoping it would be like the Hunger Games in some way. It's not at all. It's an okay story, definetly geared towards a much younger person. I think young boys especially would enjoy it.
I have, all my friends with dogs in fact. Though its not always well received by those who take Caesar Milan's word as gospel.
How the author explained dogs are not "pack animals" in the sence that they are like wolves. I found this very interesting.
Yes, it reads almost like a radio play.
This goes with out saying... The Doctor.
Meera did all the characters really well, though I was pretty impressed with her Amy.
Perfect for getting your Who in while the Doctors off season.
Yes, but with the warning that it's a little dryer then one might expect.
Yes. Again the idea behind the story was a very cool one, however this is only a one listen book. No repeats.
I do like that there was no overly grafic sex scenes or anything like that, but it just had the potential to be so much more.
YES!! I completely recommend this to any of my friends who enjoy history.
I loved how all of Romes history could be tied in by following a heirloom. (It's just extra awesome it's a penis pendant.)
His voice is just perfect!
Probably the Fascinus, even though it's not really a character. It's the penis with wings pendant that the family passes down from generation to generation.
While listening to this I felt as if I knew the Potitius & Pinarius families. Fabulously written!
Yes! It's a very long listen, but there is so much detail and layers it would not at all feel repetitive.
I have not actually enjoyed another performance of Craig Wasson before, however he is perfect for the narroration of this story.
The small time spent in Derry, Maine was the only scary part of the book.... And that stuck with me. Probably because as a child I was so afraid of Pennywise.
I have recommended this book to everyone. It's a perfect book for all types, it's not really scary, it has romance, history... Who wouldn't love it?
I actually bought this book after reading the book "Madame Tussaud" by Michelle Moran. So I would have to say that would be the best comparison.
Hearing how the tragedy of the Titanic continued to affect the survivors for the remainder of their lives.
The compilations of so many little biographies of so many interesting and diverse people.
