This book is a classic and one of my all time favorites. Simon Vance adds so much more to the story with his rich, scary voice.
Most of the authors facts and recommendations are geared towards men. WHAT ABOUT US FEMALE NERDS? I guess you can always just apply them to yourself, with the exception of scientifically based facts. Otherwise, there are some descent tips to give you a quick confidence boost.
This book is funny! The narrator does a great job and the short stories are hysterical!
The story itself, if true, is very creepy stalker-esque. The author/narrator does an okay job. His voice is monotone, so no intonation during funny or sarcastic moments. He does crack a couple jokes that would be funnier if his voice was more interesting. The story is definitely funnier than probably intended.
You have to learn somewhere I guess... BUT the 8 lessons are just repetitions of the same lessons within the audiobook. So it's basically just 4 new lessons. Repetition is a must for language learners but no one informed the makers of this audiobook that if the listener wanted to repeat a lesson they can just press rewind. Also, they just teach you the "basics" if you're a tourist, not conversation basics.
You fall in love with the characters, you're heart breaks with them, and you have a good chuckle every now-and-again! The narrators do a fabulous job. This book kept me wanting more and more!
I really enjoyed all three installments of the trilogy. Mockingjay was a great listen, the narrator did a wonderful job. On a personal note, because it really is all about personal preference, I wish the ending would have been a little different. Let's just say, it's not your typical "Hollywood" ending. Katniss changes drastically since the first book. I don't want to ruin the book for anyone but she kinda loses her sass. All in all, this is a wonderful story you must read!
I liked all of the Hunger Games books but this one was by far the best. It's the transition between them and that's probably why it's the most exciting and moving. There so much information to grasp it's no wonder they weren't able to capture everything from the book on film. The narrator does such a great job of capturing the audience's attention with her interpretation of the characters. You have to read all 3!
Like most of Flynn's books, it's a great mystery read. The characters are disturbingly dark but that's what makes this mystery a more interesting to read. You might think you see the ending coming but it's that plus a hundred times worse. Also, I'm very picky about narrators but Lee does a great job with all of the characters.
I got this audiobook for free so I can't complain but it was pretty cheesy. Ball busting chick falls for incredibly hot vampire who likes to press her buttons, obvious drama ensues. A lot of empty dialogue and predictable plot. It's a short listen and I was intrigued enough to finish it, if that helps? The narrator wasn't half bad, it's the story line that's questionable.
If you love Cohen's show on Bravo then you'll love this book. That same fun loving personality comes across when he reads. Some part of his story can get too drawn out but for the most part he is very entertaining. Maybe a funny notch below but if you like Tina Fey's Bossypants you will enjoy this book. I thought it was funnier than any of Chelsea Handler's books. Everyone is different so I suggest you listen to the sample, it's pretty indicative of the rest of the feel of the book.
