A Storm of Swords is a fast paced roller coaster ride. This book is full of so many surprises that I kept thinking..... what just happened. Keep your rewind button handy on this read because you will be using it often! Storm will not disappoint. This is definitely in my list of best stories and I know I will listen again.
My friend told me what a great story this is. I first hesitated wondering if it was another war story. But that is only a small portion of the story. The young woman, Jean, lives through such an ordeal as a prisoner, but this shapes her for the next part of her life. This was such a great surprise!It is a mix of adventure, love and determination that culminates in New Zealand. The action is well paced and you want to find out how it ends. I would definitely add this to your listening list.
I really wanted this story to delve more into the characters. I think it went too long sometimes on the historical aspects without the characters being involved. I didn't connect to the story and kept waiting for something bigger to happen. It never did. It was a long book that kind of went nowhere. The performance was good, but don't expect too much from this over-hyped book.
This was on my list to books to read in my lifetime. I have watched the movie and wondered if the book would be as good. It didn't disappoint. The story is gripping and very suspenseful to the very end. The story is of 4 men with somewhat hum drum lives that run into circumstances beyond what they had imagined for a weekend wilderness outing. Very good listen.
This was a boring story. This story seems to go on and on with little story. The narrations is good but I was very disappointed with this book!
This was on my 100 books to read in my lifetime and I didn't know what to expect with the story. It is an interesting tale about an alternate society. I was surprised how good the book was, but the reading was wonderful. Claire Danes did an exceptional narration and it is one I would listen to again.
I really enjoyed the many characters and couldn't wait to see what happens to the Joads next. This is definitely well worth the listen!
Thank you Audible for a fun little Christmas tale! I really enjoyed the characters and having a short little story.
