We continue with the Andy Carpenter series because we love the court room drama without the book being too much thriller. There is a lot of humor here! Andy is very funny and he is far from perfect, he is just lovable.
This book has really marked a turning point in David's writing. The story is more thriller, less silly. Don't think this means the humor has gone, it hasn't! But the plot has deepened and David's storytelling is becoming more sophisticated. The less than intense drama/graphic thriller is more up our alley than the book to movie types with intense weapon use.
We really like Andy, Lori and Tara. I once thought Pete was my favorite second level character but I am thinking Sam is now my favorite. Listen on!
I really enjoy The Shadow and while the story flows nicely it is the quality of the audio that makes listening difficult. Do not listen on the train, in a car or anywhere there is much noise. Listeners will likely prefer noise canceling head phones. Until then... Crime does not pay.
This narrator has a very smooth voice. This story is vastly different than the Disney version. This story has a rich foundation of reality where misfortune can occur. From this basis the fictional story begins. The story is delightful, quick and a great conversation starter for families. My whole fa,ily enjoyed this story and everyone agreed that the narrator has a sweet voice which married perfectly with this story.
I loved listening to snippets of people who explain their lives. I want to do this. I listened with my kids and we thought this idea was just fantastic. I wish I had been able to do this with my grandmother. WOW! Impressive. Very, impressive.
I kept thinking about my own life and what I would want to know about my elders. They have so much to share but our daily lives don't always allow us to remove the distractions that interrupt family conversations. What happens is love pours out and allows the participants to really connect. I just love this idea.
eh. The story is cute, it is short but it really doesn't develop much compassion for any of the characters. It is just ... there.
This wonderful little mouse has worked his way into my heart. I want a house with a piano and a little mouse hole nearby. I giggled and hummed. I came to enjoy each session of singing and key pounding. I think this level of creativity is like a ray of sunshine in the dark of reality. It is not possible to be sad with Wolf in the house. Mrs Honeybee is a fine lady that could easily be my best friend with tea and cookies included!
Insanity and marriage equals dysfunctional. Interesting yet I don't think I want to listen again. The best part of this is learning how to make a much better relationship. To get there means observation and wanting to be in a better place. I guess this means I choose to look at marriage a bit differently.
I laughed and was shocked all at the same time. I had never thought much about the Appalachian Trail because the Rocky Mountains are my back and front yards. Hikers are interesting people. I learned a lot about Bill's neck of the woods and some about hiking. I laughed with him, and panicked for him. This book was good and, in a Boy Scout way of being prepared, quite a time of fun. I felt the rain, the pull to be in the wilderness, the hunger and thirst right along side writer and narrator. Intriguing story. I will listen again.
A wonderful narration. Claudia's voice is sweet and wonderful. It is like a smooth tea. This is a short science fiction story and worth a visit. It certainly is unusual and it makes a unique perspective on life. I liked it but it is on the odd side of what I generally listen to. The creatures called Wraiths are what brings people to "town." It is like an old home that is said to have spirits, ghosts or paranormal activity. The home attracts its own tourists and site-seekers. This story has wraiths. This planet has wraiths. Without them, the place becomes a ghost town, and not in a good way, in the way of abandonment. Interesting.
The narration paired with the story. A clever Ted Hammond is not only a perfectionist regarding accomplishments but he is prepared like every good scout. This is a modern time story and won't stand the test of time but it is an enjoyable story regarding farm children who are part of a team, not just a kid. Good for a family reading.
A film? Why waste the time and money? Books have an entirely different sensation. The are also custom fitted to each reader/listener because we choose the exact color of blue, the brand of peanut butter and size of someone's shoes. Films are overrated when it comes to the idea that all books should be turned to film. It is a rare specimen that is better than the book. Rare indeed!
I am less happy with the Alan Cumming narration than the version narrated by Walter Zimmerman and Walter Covell. That version is far superior because it is so easy to determine who is speaking. No variation in this version for the voice of Holmes vs Watson.
Get the other version. Much improved.
