Mary Beth Hurt is a master storyteller. I couldn't stop listening. Her characters were quirky, funny and totally believable.
Ann Leary's "The Good House" is a great read with lots of little twists and turns. She has created a town of rich, diverse and interesting characters. A really fun listen.
I enjoyed the story so it was time well spent. The concept was fresh and new - at least to me.
Yes. His writing style is easy to listen to and the plot lines are well fleshed out.
I had some issues with Mr. Williamson's performances. One of the things that bothered me was the presence of gasping breaths. Whether to remove or reduce the breaths is a subject of much debate and I may be overly sensitive but I don't want to hear any loud breaths unless the story demands it, for example if someone is running. Learning better breathing skills or editing down the breaths would make for a much nicer listen. In addition, I would have liked to have heard more emotion in the narrator's voice. More stress, more terror, more joy, etc.
Probably. There was a lot of suspense in the book which would make for exciting viewing and the special effects required would be interesting to see.
So amazingly good
David Sedaris is able to take the everyday and wring every little bit of humor out of it.
David's tone and attitude add a multitude of layers to the stories.
Oh What A Life
Love, love, love David Sedaris. You cannot go wrong with this book.
Yes. This book was really enlightening in terms of where we've been, where we are and where we're headed.
Jeff's narration of this title was easy to listen to, well paced and intelligent.
If you want to get a clear understanding of the state of our digital world, this book is a worthwhile listen.
interesting, suspenseful, fresh
Hush is a crime drama much like many others but the storyline is quite fresh and UNLIKE any other I've personally read.
I found Ms. Beresford's narration to be stiff and slow in the beginning but she seemed to warm up to the story so that by about the middle of the book, I was able to lose myself in the book and forget about the narration.
If you enjoy stories involving psychopathic killers, this will be an enjoyable read for you.
Joe Morton gives a brilliant performance. One of the best narrations I have ever had the pleasure to experience and I have listened to a lot of audiobooks.
Perhaps some elements of The Warmth of Other Suns insofar as the descriptions of life in the south and Harlem in the early to mid 20th century.
From a technical point of view, I was completely taken with Joe's work. He put so much life into his characters that I am driven to compare the text to the narration to see if what he does with the work was written into the text or just the magic that he brought to this book.
The story is very engaging. I can't recommend this audiobook enough.
