I can't tell the readers or author how important this series of books have become to me. I am nearly a senior citizen (74 years old) who recently became a widow after 35 years of being more than happily married. Now I am struggling to find out just who I really am & to try & go forth in life. Reading at least 4 of these books so far they have spoken to me on more than a literary way. John Ceepak & his side kick Danny & all those who deal with them are teaching me something I should have known & followed in Kindergarten. The stories themselves are simple & enjoyable, life like & challenging when I ask myself "Could I do that?" Could I be like J. Ceepak with his code of honor? I had to give that a lot of thought. It is so easy to skip over. Be aware readers, I am 74 yrs old so this is a serious & meaningful question for me. And by the way it is in the ten commandments. Say what? But I am not going there per se. I did realize the "code" was very meaningful to me although I knew it also take compassion, patience & courage. So here is the rub….. what does it take to follow the example of the author Chris Grabenstein's description of being someone 'who does not lie, does not steal or does not cheat,' & more importantly does not tolerate those who do! I know I know what a Pandora's box this can become. & I can see the wall of resistance coming down like Niagara falls. And I agree it isn't for everyone, but I also know life can be much simpler, less stressful & so much less dramatic by taking this code seriously. So as I continue to read this entertaining & enticing series I have decided I am going try to try & do just this. Wish me luck in a world where none of this code is taken very seriously.
No, becasue I rarely listen to books twice
It was easy to guess when given the choice
It was pretty good
I thought this book touched upon subjects that were difficult for people to hear, like domeatic violence, poor parenting, hidden insecurities, murder of children. And for these reasons made it less enjoyable for me.
Yes, in fact I consider this book the BEST book I have ever listened too. When I read one of the reviews from someone who said they stayed up all night to listen to it I was quite skeptical, but I found I was listening to it late at night AND during the day. This book, in my opinion could have been at least three full books of thrilling mysteries. It was totally fascinating & had me dumbsruck with guessing what would come next which did keep coming like water over a waterfall - non stop. i think Indiana Jones paled in comparison.
I can't just pick one & if I were to list them all I would be giving away the book. And we do not want that now do we? All I can say us if other people want a wonderful, exciting expereince with an audible book....THIS IS IT.
His performance was masterful & indeed flawless. He surely made this audible book a wonderful experience. He went on top of the list of my favorite narrators. Which makes it hard to listen to other narrators who are less enjoyable..
Absolutely, in fact I almost did. The author has my praise for writing such a magnificent book. It was so mesmerizing it gsve the word a new meaning.
I jusr can't say enough good about this book. Thank you Scott Hunter!!!
Among the top 100
Intriguing, captinvating, & on & on
He captured the characters very well
!It made me confident that Baldacci has done it again!
Way to GO!
The fact that a very young man after going through much suffering himself could turn around & be everyone's hero & wiith great business savy too. He used the tools he found to his advantage which I found uniquely interesting. And he wasn't afraid to be alone .
Absolutely. Too many times the young people are given passes just becaue they are young & this author gives voice to another great choice;, & one that takes independence & courage. Similar to the Chris Gravenstein books.
Whe it becam apparent that Nickel knew just what he had to do so he could keep on doing good for others which was anonymity. A tough decision to make for any age..
Maybe a decent story that made sense from beginning to end. Characters that blended together better than cottage cheese. A begining & end I could understand. Forget the attempt at a love story ending.....life just doens' t happen like that, Even the attempt at psychic involvement was poor, but what topped off all the worse was the monster with rage character. Man....hang it up..
I do not know but it won't be one by this author
Narrator had nothing to do with bad book
It was believable & interesting
It was very suspenseful & kept me guessing most of the time
She did a fine job in my opinion
Not my expertise
I doubt it
I do not know but it will be one that does not make me sick to my stomach.
I have nothing against the narrator
I would cut the story so that there is no book
Nope, that will do it!
Way too much explilcit sexual exlanations as book goes on. Should have been called a romance novel..
Not start out leading sudience to think one way & then switch it around. Most of the main characters fell into this trap. first your a bad guy, then your not. First you are a plain Jane & then your not.
Up, down & sideways
Yes I find this series entertaining. informative & funny. And I think I can read a lot of myself in Abby Cooper on both the physical & spiritual level.
Yes & I can say the same for most of all the books I have continued to read.
The Tarot card reading scene at the wedding.
I do not know.
I did not like how Abby kept the gloomy forecast going all through the book only to be wrong about it. Frankly it was a drag down for one of her books.
THe story line for sure
maybe getting happier would have helped but all I heard was her falling down, getting her boyfriend upset & her hips colllapsing on her.
