Yes, it was fast-paced and kept adding twists and turns to keep things moving and kept my interest throughout.
His pace, accent and presentation make the book come alive.
Would recommend this book for light reading!
The reader was terrible.
Voice, cadence, inflection (or lack of), tone -- lack of a difference in voice between characters. The first chapter was so boring and atonal to listen to, we returned it!
Have it re-recorded, if possible.
No, it was fairly predictable. The characters were off somehow -- the plot seemed disjointed and the characters seemed as if they were sleepwalking their way through the book...
This seems to have been one of his earlier performances...the previous audio books I've listened to with Scott Brick as the performer/reader, have been excellent; however, in this one he just didn't seem to be on his "game." He badly mispronounced a few things and having to listen to him mangle the name of the town of Dahlonega, GA, time after time, was excruciating! He just seemed to give a lackluster performance -- it certainly was't one of his better efforts.
No -- pretty tame.
It depends on whether it's being written for adults or children!
Another Diana Gabaldon book, probably.
Depends upon the book.
Again, if it's being written for children it would make a promising series, but otherwise no.
Having the entire book rewritten by Diana Gabaldon, who knows how to tell a story.
The reader was adequate; however, her characters all sounded alike and it seemed like she disliked the book as much as I did.
Most of it -- there was very little story there, mostly one woman whining about her miserable life and how everyone was conspiring against her to keep her "down."
The writing of this book was so poor and characters so listlessly portrayed that it was a major effort to finish it...I won't try any of her books again.
Someone who's really into science fiction might enjoy this book. It feels like the author had no plan or outline to follow in writing this book, and made things up as he went along. It was choppy, lacked cohesiveness, and was difficult to follow.
Disappointment that I bought it.
A waste if time.
The narrators captured the pace and correct presentation and made this a great ride!
The accents were wonderful!
Tragic historical account.
Several books written about the Holocaust come to mind...
I wouldn't say "favorite" is the right word; possibly, moving or blatently honest would be more correct. There were too many scenes of that caliber, but I might say the scene in Siberia where the Russian officer comes to their aid, is one of them.
See last comment.
This book should be required high school reading, or college, at the very least! Why hasn't Oprah reviewed this one!!???
The story wandered about so much and was not cogently assembled that I found it irritating to listen to...the narrator didn't help much either.
Lack of cohesiveness and strong characters.
I wish I could tell you that...
No particular scene stands out -- one reason I supposed I disliked it!
Please take it back!!!
Scott Brick's presentation of this well-written, fast-moving book is terrific, as usual! The book was so well written that my interest never lagged and the story was very explicit in so many details that it seemed very plausible.
The ending, where the heros of the book come to realize the actual meaning of the buried "treasure."
With Mr. Brick's reading, I am able to sit back and let the events wash over me and just listen as if I were on site, experiencing the whole thing.
Only insofar as encouraging the realization that we probably aren't alone in the universe!
I was, once again, pleased that I had chosen a book read by Mr. Brick; he is excellent!
