A real narrator would have made this better. The book is a classic, but the narrations sux. Anyone would have been better.
Yes, the narrator murdered this book.
Classic, but flawed
A Will Patten book is a well read story. Will adds a lot to each book. He creates the characters of Dave and Clete and you believe your hearing from them. He captures your imagination and pulls you into the story line.
I am Clete Persell guy. I always wonder why JLB doesn't put him into his own book line. This book has a lot of Clete and thats always a good thing.
It was written on a childs level.
He could have listed it in the childrens section
It didn't have any redeeming quialities for adult fiction.
Please post this book as a kids book. Can I have a refund?
Yes. the reader does a great job of presenting the heroine and her friends. You cant get that by reading.
Betsy is the Queen. She lets nothing bother her and she takes all your problems away while listening to her try to live her life. I found myself completely immersed in the story and all my troubles disappeared for a while. I love spending time with Betsy.
When we find out what happens to Sinclair - ouch! I wont spoil it but its not what you expect. Let's just say ruthless is the word.
I love this series, it's just good gossip. No great story line, or memorable writing, just fun listening and a laugh. And thats ok.
I did like the readers, they did a great job through all the books. I don't think we'll be getting any more books from Jordan, and I have read one other Sanderson and found it tiring.
The Cat who walks through Walls
They do a great job with inflection and tone. I really felt emotion from their reading.
Yes, but not 14 movies.
The predictable end to a very long series. I thought the creation of the world the story takes place in very creative and intriguing but the writing was a little long winded and a little boring. The Author put too much detail into each book. I really don't need to know the name of every sword form, or every song, etc that a character would say or do.
I was very disappointed in the ending. The hero that rides along into the sunset is the biggest cliche in literature or western movies! It was awfully unimaginative.
I would, it was a good read. The author could have developed the characters more and added details about relationships. I was a little thin. The main character is a mystery man for most of the book and even at the end you really don't know him very well.
Arthur Clarks 2001
The rescue in Beirut, but it could have been much more detailed than it was. Too fast, too predictable, no chance for the good guys to lose.
It would be fluff - so look for Johhny Depp and Emilo Estevez
Going back to Grishom
The author is a tree hugging Obama supporter that thought everything would be given to her. No wonder she is cynical later in life.
she read her own sad story -
Don't look for any good advice here.
No a fan of bumbling texas shariffs. Where's Dave? And this book could really have used Clete. I missed him a lot. The plot is good, and the story is listenable but the attraction of the deputy to the old fogey sheriff was forced and hard to bear. The gay mexicans were hard on the ears too.
Listen to a Dave R. novel instead.
Kind of depressing, is there any nice guys left?
I closed this one with the joy of knowing that I did NOT live in this world but in my little corner of it.
The writer is perfectly boring. He uses our best president to cover up bad writing, and even throws in Edgar Allen Poe. But it is of no avail - Forescore and 2 years ago the writer brought forth, on this continent, a real stinker.
He needs to develop characters more fully, and his skills at drawing a picture with words are very lacking. I found myself disconnected and unsympathetic to the characters.
Not a bad performance, but bad writing
Hack ripps off president to sell book
The book reads like your hearing it over a fence. It's good gossip, but you didn't hear it from me! The leading lady wants to sell shoes and be herself, the author keeps throwing a crown on her head. What's a girl to do?
I would recommend this if you want to put your brain in neutral and enjoy a trashy novel.
Nancy has three voices really, and you hear them from different characters but she really gets the leading character and she is fun to listen to.
There are too many follow up books.
I'm done with this series, but it was a fun ride.
