Bursts of action ... followed by long periods of inaction.
Erin ... because she was loyal to the President and her responsibilities, while still being feisty enough to be interesting.
Lawlor's narration was mediocre, at best. His character separation was pretty good, and his inflections made it pretty easy to keep characters straight. However, his inconsistency in pronunciation of the names of locations was frustrating.
Almost anything other than The Last Days ... a phrase that I only remember hearing one time in the entire book!
I enjoy Rosenburg's style and his believable presentation of Christianity as a credible system of faith.
I have read and/or listened to every John Grisham book I could get my hands on, and The Testament is definitely one of my favorites. The story line is riveting. Frank Muller's narration is perfect, especially for conveying the timelessness of the Amazon river system. And the life-changing message of the Gospel is made clear and believable. Great book!
I have read everything Joel Rosenberg has written ... and this is the best by far! A superb blending of tragic history and a wonderful story of hope and faith. Christopher Lane's narration is perfect for this book. His characterizations are believable and filled with emotion. Please read this book!
John Grisham, with his Theo Boone series, has proven again that he's a master of the legal genre, and that he can even make it fun for younger readers.
Richard Thomas does a good job of reading, without trying to fake a bunch of character voices.
While it's true that I listen to most books more than once, I have found myself drawn to Unbroken over and over, and over and over again. It has become my entire family's most requested book when we travel! You NEED to hear this.
The story is classic Grisham in its own right. And Frank Muller's narration is an excellent blending of the story and the presentation.
Having been a Grisham fan for many years, The Racketeer was a unique adventure into the twists and turns of our justice system and those whose lives intersect it.
I don't always agree with Grisham's conclusions, but I appreciate that he challenges my thinking.
Like him, or hate him, Bill O'Reilly's "Killing Lincoln" is one of the best books dealing with one of the most interesting and controversial events in American history. The many twists and turns in this intriguing book make it an essential for every history buff's audio library. O'Reilly's narration is consistent with his "Factor" persona.
The Oregon Files is my favorite of all Cussler series (and I've read or listened to most of them). The Plague Ship is loaded with action, and makes a guy want to BE Juan Cabrillo! This series without Scott Brick would be a travesty!
A Time to Kill is REAL Grisham. It's a good story that makes one think about his position on important issues ... and then re-think it. I don't always arrive at the same conclusions the author leads his readers to, but I do appreciate the exercise. Michael Beck did a masterful job of bringing this tale to life.
The King of Torts is such a letdown that it's hard to believe Grisham actually wrote it. Please tell me he didn't! The dialogue is blah, blah, blah. The characters are just blah. The only redeeming quality is Beck's narration.
Having read or listened to most of Cussler's works, I find the Oregon Files to continually climb to the top of my enjoyment list. While this may not be the very best of the series, it is certainly an enjoyable "read." The action is pretty much none-stop, with just enough breathing room to prepare one for the next scene. Scott Brick does a superb job of bringing each character to life.
