I love the whole series, and I am not a kid. This is great entertainment for children or adults with lots of plot twists and interesting locales. You can learn things about the world from the 39 clues whether you are old or young.
There are many interesting characters in this series, but what interested me was how the characters evolved and grew through the stories. It is hard to believe that there were so many different writers, it had such a smooth transition.
His performance was great!
Around the world with the Cahills.....
This is a very enjoyable series, I highly recommend all these books....
This was an interesting concept, but I feel the author uses the rape and torture of women rather than search for an interesting and original conflict for her story arc. This same conflict is employed over and over in her work. It's too bad she can't seem to break away from the rape and torture conflict, the stories have some interesting magical concepts, and yet there was a lot of potential that was not realized. I've had enough at this point, I can't read any more of her work. Life is too short to read something that makes me want to cringe...
Unfortunately, I have to agree with the other reviewers, switching narrators was a bad idea and made it difficult to enjoy the book. Otherwise, the story was solidly written like all the books in this series. I love the characters Rick Riordan creates, each one has their own unique personality, quirks and all. I highly recommend this series, but this last one needs to be reread by one of the former narrators for this series.
Brandon Sanderson is one of my all time favorite authors. I have read just about anything he's written, except the Alcatraz series. His fantasy ideas continue to amaze me and always leave me wanting more. I highly recommend his work, it is just the right blend of strong characters, action and a well thought out plot.
If you enjoy rape, torture, the after effects analyzed in painful detail and revenge, then this is for you. It's not my cup of tea, there was more angst than magic.
I doubt it.
I have and I can't say I care for her narration. To me, it comes across as too melodramatic and depressing, which I suppose is why she was chosen for this particular book.
Not that I could see.
I wouldn't recommend it to fantasy/sci fi fans, they would be disappointed.
The readers were excellent, but the book itself nosedived in the second half to a whinny, self pity fest by the heroine. It reached a point where I felt like screaming, "what is wrong with you", to her.
I doubt it, and it's too bad, because the book did have an excellent premise.
I particularly like Jahveri's performance, he has a wonderful, seductive voice.
It had a really interesting plot, if it had ended before all the pity and self doubt from the heroine, I think I would have loved it. Honestly, I couldn't see what was so wrong about trying to love Ren. It just felt like the author didn't or couldn't find a good way to break them up and create some separation drama.
This is a great classical Christmas story by Arthur Conan Doyle, and a wonderful Christmas present from Audible. Thanks Audible!!!!!!!!
If you like this you might want to consider Conan Doyle's other works. If it is a classical Christmas story you want then you might like A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens...
I've seen Cumming on Masterpiece Mystery, and thought he was a perfect choice for this book reading.
I don't think anything could compare to Jeremy Brett's Holmes in the Blue Carbuncle.
I can't thank you enough Audible, this really embodies the holiday spirit and shows what a company can do for it's loyal members.
