suspense, intrigue, wit
Scott Brick is an excellent narrator. You think you're hearing different people's voices. He manages to keep the excitement and suspense alive.
Joe Zavala and the whole Aswan dam incident.
The description of the things creating the storm were compelling. I enjoyed the inclusion of the Pain Maker and thought that was quite intriguing.
an enjoyable read
I had to stop this one. Couldn't go on. Starts out okay, but then the plot becomes just too idiotic. Also, there was a heavy emphasis on developing the homosexual male characters to the exclusion of the others. It stopped being about the plot and became one of the author's agenda. If I'd wanted a book about homo eroticism I'd have asked for it. The narrator was doing his best to feminize the characters. Just got to be disgusting.
Besides this the plot, although it starts out well enough, becomes so farcical it was hard not to laugh.
I was fascinated by the point of view of Maggie, the dog. This could have been so lame, but it was fascinating. Plot was satisfying and kept me engaged throughout. I'm quite satisfied and would read another from Crais.
Yes, I would listen to this again. It was suspenseful, with just the right amount of humour, with several twists in the plot.
I liked the whole idea that the building was a part of a time warp keyhole thing, and that other people had been there before dealing with life and death decisions. Also the inclusion of Tesla as one of the creators of the machine was intriguing.
Going across to the other side and dealing with the swales. Also liked the discovery of the machine in the building.
Nothing, the narrator's voicings, especially of Viek were spot on.
An enjoyable read. This is the closest to Lovecraft I've seen in a long time. I laughed and cried, got upset with the monsters, and thoroughly enjoyed it.
It was a book I needed to read. I think its something everyone should be aware of, as it's linked to real current events.
That it could actually play out or at least in a similar way.
No. I thought she was expressive.
no. I had to parse this one out a little.
The ending helps the reader figure out where these ideas came from.
This is porn. Packaged up nicely, but still porn.
I thought it would have some substance to it, but it never did.
This was an interesting read/listen. I never imagined Jobs was such a jerk. It was however very entertaining and brought back memories of the beginning years of the personal compuater and the rivalries between Apple and Microsoft.
he was alright.
So many different groups of people had similar reactions to Jobs and they either praised him or demonized him.
1Q84 is not an easy audiobook to get through. Although it starts out interesting and had me hooked, it changes and becomes very slow and plodding, and at some points mind numbing so. What should take maybe a sentence or two to explain, this author takes pages. It took an act of will to finish, then when I did finish it was a let down.
It was almost like this author got off topic wrote too much then decided to quickly end his story when it got too long. The ending leaves so many loose ends. All the minute details the author uses to set the scene are in the end never explained.
I would not read another book by Murakami.
a high school essay that went way over its page limit then ended quickly without wrapping up the story
no. It's too plodding already, why have a sequel.
Apparently this was not a good starter book to read by Murakami.
As I discovered more about this author, I realized he has an agenda. He is a former devout Christian who lost his faith after attending a very liberal seminary. He appears to have an agenda that being Christian is based on inaccurate or incomplete historical knowledge. He sets himself up as a self styled expert who is much more knowlegeable than people of faith. It is very professorial in tone. I think the author has a destructive agenda and is clearly anti Christian and pro liberal. I quit listening to it before I could get half way through.
A very suspenseful and tight edged thriller. Very gutsy. A Chicago cop is thrown into a collision course with her past. Kept me riveted until the very end. I'd have given it five stars but I didn't like the way the author portrayed Christianity- thought that was a little over the top. Otherwise a great novel. It's a little gruesome and has sexual sadism in it. The heroine is very strong and compelling.
