I liked the narrator.. he sound\ed like you would like the character would sound like.
It was boring. It took me forever to get thru it.. I lagged for a month in between listenings. I just lost the will to care when nothing ever seemed to happen. I am sure there is a point, but it wasnt interesting enough to make me want to care.
I havent seen the movie, not sure there could even be one, theres no point to this story
Not at all. Waste of time.
Veronica Mars rates at the top of the "pleasure" books I have read.
I love that Kristen Bell narrated, and it synced up nice with the original show as she narrated that as well.
I did not cry at this point, but the dialogue between the characters is well written and smart, similar to the show
I do not think you have to be a die hard fan to love this story, but it certainly helps to have seen the show and the subsequent movie. You should watch those anyway, because they rock.
Unknown. I did not read the print version.
Its Twilight for smart people.
never heard her performance before. I enjoyed her performance on A Discovery of Witches immensely.
I did not laugh or cry.
This was a good story, but way too long. I listen to about an audio book a week, this one took me a month. The story drug on for a really long time. I liked the characters, and the plot line had merit, but I found myself not caring about it after awhile. The ending was a bit dissatisfying as well, but there was a "sequel" so I assume there is a continuation...
I will not be rushing to read the second one... I just don't have the desire to commit to another long, long story.
I love James Patterson, he can do no wrong. I loved the characters, I loved the intrigue, the mystery. I loved that he wrote it from the fed up women perspective. The women are all successful, seriously flawed women.
Oh, there is no way to answer this with out a huge spoiler. I will only say that there is a moment where the main character discovers some inner strength.
I was very intrigued by this book. I did want to continuously listen. I do not recall any laughing or crying.
I love James Patterson, so clearly this is a bias review. James was one of the first authors that really sparked my love of reading post college. This story had it all, sex, crime, bitterness, revenge. I sometimes feel guilty reading fiction books, thinking I should be using my precious spare time for bettering myself with business books or self help, but I don't feel bad about loving books like this (audio helps too since I can be doing other things while "reading". James Patterson will never write a classic novel, but his books are damn entertaining and this is no exception.
Like so many of his novels, the thing I like most about James Patterson is the character intertwining with each other. All characters have a back story and somehow it all makes sense. Of course, the intriguing mystery of crime novels is well represented.
I dislike when audio narrators use exaggerated voices. I thought the voices on this book were in sync with character. Although, admittedly, the new york accent was a little mundane.
Moved me... no. But, the lead detective working with his ex who he still had a flame for was something I could identify with...
I just did not believe this story. I realize the concept of a school shooting and the motives behind such deplorable behavior are suppose to be unfathomable, but I just could not get behind it. I listened to the whole nearly 16 hours and found the story interesting and horrific, but somewhat shock for shock value. I do not want to give away too much less I spoil the obvious ending for other. I was clearly listening to a story that was suppose to be about real issues, and real people (many actual events are quoted amongst the occurrences in this book in order to verify it as factual) but from the beginning I was more than aware that I was reading fiction designed to ignite a gut reaction from me.
I would recommend this to my Jodi Piccoult reading friends. It is about that level of emotional fiction. (I love her, no judgement).
I hated all the characters in this book, but it was designed to invoke such vial disdain. I especially hated the father for his dismissive behavior and his mother for her reckless optimisms and futile retrospect.
I hear it is a movie. I guess I would see it if I need a good cry.
I really enjoyed the first part. I am an avid Office fan and love Mindy's comedy. I also just came off a fantastic voyage thru the Tina Fey novel and was hoping to revisit the glory with Mindy Kaling. Funny enough, Mindy jokes about this comparison in the intro. I laughed a few times with the book, and actually made my teenage daughter listen to a few sections because I thought they were relevant to her, But by the end, I lost some interest. It really is short by audio book comparisons, but I felt like the beginning and early middle were fluid and towards the end it was a little more random.
I recommend this book. But don't listen to it because you think she is going to go on and on about the office, she doesn't really. She has lots of other interesting stuff to talk about.
I liked that Mindy is sweet and unassuming, but also very intelligent and driven. Thats the kind of person I want to be,
Mindy has a line about people who are really popular in HS dont do anything else, HS is their peak. This stuck with me.. its SO true,
