I probably ranked as a book to read again someday, or maybe a book to be recommended to a friend.
At first I was a little skeptical about the book, I thought "another book with young supernatural" but to read the review I thought it was worth giving a vote of confidence, and I do not regret. The story is intriguing. You're stuck at the end
No one in particular.
I agree completly with who wrote the the book review. This book is amazing.
lWould have to change some things, for example,: Dick Shelton is looks more like a lady in distress. It is a poor character, little interesting. The Black Arrow Group - who are they? The author didn't explain why the group existe... only existe. And who was Dick's father? Why was he murder?
Probably develop better the characters. Better structure the story in a way that makes it more attractive
I don't know.
I wouldn't cut, I would rewrite the third part of the book.
This story has funny moments that are unforgetable, like the night after the theater, or when Joy tries to tell Alec she is a witch...
I loved Joy. She is so innocent, and sometimes naive... is impossible not falling in love for her.
I have three favorites characters: Joy, with all her confused way. Alec with his arrogant and aristocratic way to protect himrself from everything and everyone. And Steven, who is so naive as child can be.,
This book is wonderful.
In my opinion the problem is not the story or the narrator. The problem is that "One Hundred Years of Solitude" is a dificult book to follow. The story revolves around several generations of the Buendia's family, who always repeat the same names: José Arcadio, Aureliano, Úrsula, Amaranta ... So, without knowing the story beforehand, the listener gets lost
. Although I like this story, I do not think right rated as 4-5 stars, when the story without prior knowledge, and a printed version for consultation, will end up being boring.
Hardly, because this áudio version of the book leaves story very confusing, especially for people who use english as a second language. So I hardly recommend the audio version. This kind of book that needs to be read, not heard.
The last Aureliano Buendia. The first character who appears in the narrative, and the last Buendia to disappear. I like the way he faces his last moments. Think of all the character, this was what most caught my attention.
"One Hundred Years of Solitude" has a good story, but who not know the printed version will have problems to understand. So, my sugestion is: to listening this book, is necessary a printed book. Without this, hte person will be annoyed, and will hated this book.
This book is among the 50 best books I've read/listened until now, because is very catchy,, full of fantasy created by the author,with cultural references,and development of the characters or any other detail that a complex project like this has.
The book contains seven chronic, and each appears new characters and characters from previous stories appear mature, so it's hard choose one character. For me, every story has important characters that enrich the world created by the author.
I loved. All cast incorporated and experienced every story managed. Some character becomes annoying. At other times we lost breath. What more can I say? For me, all the cast was and is amazing.
No one that I'd coment.
I bought the book in another consumerist impulse to my resume and I think the right thing. For those that watched the films, the order in which the stories are presented in the book are strange. But, like Always, the book is much better than the films. Those that deteste the films because they are very children's like will be get surprise by how the book is amazing.
For everyone that love books, this is an indispensable acquisition.
No, because each version provides a kind of experience. In my view, it is not possible to consider a better version than the other.
I like the way Jason Dohring and Sophie Turner narrated the story. Each of them could assign characteristics for each character, without losing what was presented in the previous books. So it is impossible to say there is a favorite character.
I think could be something like: "The end to a new beginning "
Cassandra.Clare no needs comments. The book, like all the other works leave doubts and questions about what happened in the past and what will happen in the future. The clash between past and present occurs in subtle ways, and despite writing works independent of the other, Cassandra. Clare, intersperses his works flawlessly ....
The story is a perfect continuation to Mark of Athena. This is enough for me to rate the book as good.
Everithing is perfect. The way Rick Riordan distributes the story, without forgetting the two groups of heroes
I enjoyed as Always.
Yes. there is very funny moments.
Rick RIordan creats a wonderful series. Worth listening to the story and follow the adventures of these heroes
Wonderful, timeless, adorable
The beginning, and of course, the end with the Wicked Witch. I LOVED IT!
No, this was the first time, but I think was great, more than great.
I laugh a lot with the Wicked Witch speech. I almost could imagine her at the Audible Studios....
Yes, because this book is english and french, so is perfect to pratice de two languages.
I don't know any other audible book in two languages.
Already exist movies...
Fairy tales are eternal. I grew up listenig all kinds of book from Charles Perrault and Grimm Brothers.... These stories always enchanted me... Now, I'm adult, but stiil loved listening fairy tales, especially to help to study of other languages This bilíngue edition is an excellent choice to someone who knows french.
Listening the book brought moments of irritation (when I thought: "why I'm listening this book?"), anda moments wjere I really pay attetion..
In some moments the book is too slow.
Annoying, boring, tjresome
I like the way Lauren Kate writes. But in this book, what I liked most was the mystery surrounding the little book inherited by the protagonist.
No one in particular. The story, at least in this first book, has few characters. Still can not describe the character of each.
The story seems interesting. I can not wait to meet the continuing story. Especially after, what was for me, an unexpected end. A great book. This is a book I'll recommend and buy a portuguese version to read again.
