This book is horribly written!!!! The original story was ripe for parody, but this version is an absolute WASTE of money!!!
Story??? What story???? This is simply a juvenile attempt at re-writing. This could've been so clever, but no.
I'm not one to complain, but this book was so badly done, I felt the need to warn potential customers. I'm incredibly disappointed. I wish Audible offered refunds to disgruntled customers. Actually, I want the writer to give me my money back. Audible should rescind payment to the author!
Even my teenage nieces wanted to stop listening, and they're extremely open-minded.
I'm a comedy lover. I can find humor in almost ANYTHING. But not this.
I don't know. Maybe it's just easier to READ this story, than to listen to it. I enjoyed the written books years ago, kinda enjoyed the movie, but I just couldn't get into the audiobook version. I actually stopped listening and switched to another book completely.
Trillion!!! I like bright, sassy female characters.
I REALLY liked the fact that each character was portrayed by different actors. That made it a bit easier to listen.
Boredom. Sleepiness. Slight agitation.
I'm glad I got this on sale! I'd be frustrated if I'd spent my monthly credit. I'm only out a few bucks, so no big deal. Of course, your enjoyment may vary. (TIP: Listen to the free preview first)
Entertaining. Accurate behaviors. .
I liked the whole story: plot, character development and of course, Chet.
I really appreciated that Jim Frangione never over played any of the roles.
This book made laugh out loud VERY often. My own German Shepherds enjoyed my reactions. I can't say they were actively LISTENING to the STORY, but one ran to the iPod when the story came to the end of the first download and the device went silent. (The same way that my alpha alerts me to phone calls that I miss). I listen to audio books when cleaning the house and doing chores, so my dogs follow me from room to room, helping carry items, putting things in the trash or dragging the laundry basket. Perhaps they liked this story because every time Spencer Quinn nailed one of Chet's reactions, I would smile and interact with my dogs.
Please, no. I'm pretty sure EVERYTHING was covered by this exhaustive work.
I usually enjoy anything written by Christopher Moore, but this book was a bit too long and too wordy. (Was he paid per word???) Most of the characters were well developed and the storyline was complex and interesting. I did appreciate the amount of research this must've taken and his ability to weave such a complex tale. And I must admit, I now look at each painting with "Sacre Bleu" in mind! I now search for that color everywhere!
This loooong story kinda kept me entertained while I cleaned out my dressing room/closet, which is an unending chore. I was able to tolerate several multi-hour sessions of folding, hanging and organizing. I am determined to finish the project and the story.
I loved Miss Pettigrew's honesty and morals.
Nice character separation.
Yes. I just wish it lasted longer.
Yes. Keyword: TRY
Added SOMETHING interesting in the first chapter.
The reader had a droning, monotonist voice. He read it as if HE had little interest in the prose.
It would help me drift off to sleep.
Most people love this book, I just couldn't get into it. I am a motorcyclist and I adore philosophy, but this book actually bored me. I only made it through chapter 1, but I kept thinking, "Come on, get out of First Gear!!!!"
Perhaps it eventually got better, but I need something more entertaining. I can't imagine listening to this while driving late at night!
Yes! This book is thoroughly engaging to adventure sports enthusiasts, athletes and especially runners.
The author wove a wonderful story with physiology and anthropology.
I particularly enjoyed the author's journey.
Why man runs. You will want to too!!!
I totally enjoyed this book. I'm a fairly athletic woman, a fitness instructor who wants to run again, but I tend to injure myself every time. (I spent 4 months in a walking boot due to multiple stress fractures from running too long).
This book gave me the itch to trail run like we did as kids. It also touched on techniques I've been considering for a while. This book has many of my heros, people and events I've been reading about for years. Then I found out that this was written (and lived) by a man I've been reading for ages!!! Wonderful!!!
Audible suggested this book when I wrote about a book I hated and regretted buying. Audible stepped up and offered me an exchange. Thank you for wonderful customer service and a perfect recommendation. Thank you!!!
