I am about 4 hours into the book and constantly hope it gets better, so far there has been maybe 10 minutes of Kevin, the rest is the mother droning on and on about her feelings, her life with her ex, all in letters to her ex who I am sure would not even read them, they are so self absorbed.
I found this book very amusing. The main character was strange but so endearing. I really recommend this one.
I loved the Will Trent series but two hours in, and I just cannot listen anymore, I still have no idea where this book is going, everything that is written in the summary is already revealed. I am very disappointed with it.
and this one did not disappoint me, both characters were so amusing, and even though the story was pretty outlandish, it made me laugh outloud so often. If you are looking for a really light amusing summer read this is it.
It took me over two weeks to listen to that short book, I kept hoping there would be a story,but I never could find one aside from the one that was obvious right from the start. The narrator was annoying as well. Don't waste your credit, nothing new here, child is crazy - brought up by crazy Mom who has him kill people - no details on that, simply that fact, and he grows up and kills people. Thats it, thats all.
I am very glad I bought this, sure gives you an insight into Scientology which I think the general population has no idea of. It is very different for those that are "public" Scientologiests like the celebrities - although celebrities are treated VERY special, and then it is like a cult for those that live within in it.
I tried to get into this book, it got such great reviews, but after four hours and still no idea where the plot was heading... I knew more about the book by reading the summarry on audible. So I decided to give up. I am particularly sorry as I bought the Second Deadly sin as well. I agree with some of the reviewers how the book being dated may have not helped in my enjoyment as they were trying to make the main character as a sexual pervert of some type because he wanted to have sex with sunglasses on or masks. Nowadays, that would be nothing.
I could not get into this story, I suppose if you are interested in hearing about the disection of a human that has been grisly murdered or the narrator droning on and on about some crate that has travelled over the years and the murders that follow it then this would be the book for you. I prefer more character development, maybe some humour, which this book certainly did not have, and more fast paced than this was. Halfway through and I gave up.
The killer turned out to be a big surprise, but otherwise the store was pretty average. Average characters, easy to put down, easy to listen to , did not love it but lately I have found so many I can't even listen to that this one at lease was a keeper. It does get interesting right from the beginning which is a plus for me.
While the movie was an edge of your seat movie, I left the movie wanting to know more details and background, so I got the book. It is well written and narrated, and certainly does give you the background, without going into unnecessary and boring details. Highly recommend it.
I could not put it down. The characters were very well developed, the story very believable, it probably happened, it led me to looking up pictures and stories of the camp the woman was in. Having had family killed in the holocaust myself, I had to stop doing that though. It is way too upsetting, but this was a beautiful story.
