I enjoyed these short stories. But, frankly Michael Connelly and his characters (Bosch or Haller) are at their best in complete books.
Good narration, but not too much to work with.
I've enjoyed most, but not all, of Picoult's books. In my opinion, this is her best. She incorporated a mystery into her usual format and it worked well. With one exception, the characters were interesting, real and performed well. The performance of young Jena was a little off-putting. This book is a journey with a twist and turn at the end. Well done.
It's a good, easy, fun listen. This book ranks above the middle of the pack.
The books by David Rosenfelt are similar in that they involve a very special dog as well. Although Rosenfelt does not write from the dog's perspective.
I think this narrator managed to bring Chet to life without being too cute or silly.
No, but it did make me smile several times.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. The story was good to excellent and the narration was excellent with just the right Italian accent. The only reason I gave it 4 stars overall is that the story was a little predictable in a few places. The characters were interesting and the way the author and narrator moved the listener between 1962 and today was well done. This was a very satisfying listen.
I loved the part where the listener gets to know Pasquale as he tries to improve his life by building a tennis court on a rocky cliff.
This narrator was able to quickly go from perfect English, without an accent, to speaking Italian to speaking English with an Italian accent. It gave each character his/her own voice. Very well done.
Richard Burton. What 60+ year old woman wouldn't want to have dinner with Sir Richard?
I am surprised by the hype for this book. I found the characters shallow and the story boring. I just did not get the point.
I didn't finish this "read". The main characters were thin and way too whiney and shallow. Why wouldn't a presumabley intelligent well-educated young woman simply get a better job?
