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.
be 4-5 stars because it gathers elements to it. But the way it was written, means it has good times and fell back into a pit of monotony background.
The whole story, because the review creates a scenario that is not realized in reading.
Unfortunately Natalie Gold contributes to the book to be a drag. The narrative made by it is not attractive. Not prente the reader's attention, actually contributes to the dispersion. At various times I had to go back because when I realized the story had advanced and I did not know why the characters were in some situations.
I really did not like the story, but there are times when the story got a little interesting, but just that. Moments. In general, the book is not attractive, and the narrative does not help
No. I think both versions has its enchantment.
I loved when Cassandra found Clara and find another piece of the puzzle that is the past of her grandmother. But I think the biggest moments, is the possibily to observe the situation from two points of view (sometimes 3),, as we can follow the discoveries made by Cassandra in 2005 with their questions about what would have happened at the time; we can follow the discoveries made in 1975, and how they happened, and sometimes we can see how it happened in'originalmente, from
No at first, but at some point I was captured by the story and I could not let go until I reach the end of the mystery.
The story is wonderful. The way the author presents the facts to the reader are engaging. Every discovery made, every new question we find ourselves on the verge of something so exciting that it is impossible to leave the book aside. It's a story for people who like mystery and life stories. Here there is no great novel overwhelming, but there are stories that make us question the value of things.
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.
