The characters were not interesting, the supposed close relationship was not developed, etc. I just didn't like the writing.
Fabulous new talented author. I wait in anticipation for her next novel. Next week would not be too soon! Terrific narrators I really believe this book was even better listened to than read due to the talent on this recording. Great story it really makes you stop and think about many issues we still too sadly still live with today in 2010.
This author was able to transport me into situations in which I have had no remote experience nor probably ever will living in the middle of the US. It really made me look at Afghanistan in a whole new way and the citizens of this war torn region. He is a fabulous author. "Kite Runner" was slightly better but that still means this was an exceptional read.
The story was well written except for the description of the characters. You immediately discern the good vs. bad instead of slowing evolving.
If you want to sit back, relax, smile and laugh then this is the book for you. He develops the characters so you end up falling in love with even the weird and cheering for the hero. This is a talented author and I highly recommend his books.
Captivated my attention even though somewhat predicatable.
Love this author! Would love for him to write more. Read 'Plainsong' first though it will make more sense.
These books made me laugh and cry, which in my opinion is a very good experience.
Not one of Shreve's best. She is such an excellant author but this was not very satifiying.
Very predictable sappy romance. Rated R pieces so be prepared!
Really a pleasure to listen to. Another terrific Dean Koontz thriller.
The author does a good job of 'pulling you in' to the story and liking the main character - flaws and all.
