OK, you are like me... you are reading this to see if you should use a credit! Yes, yes, yes! I was leery at first because I'm 53 and it was young adult... and a gruesome premise!!!! Hmmmmmmm! But it's so worth it! I read the criticisms of the narrator but don't feel she was bad at all! Our county is doing a promotion to get everyone in the county to read the same book. You get to vote for the book online! Of course, the classics were on there like "Great Gatsby", but they did have two new ones like "The Book Thief" (definitely get this one, too) and "The Hunger Games". I was torn between the two, but voted for "The Hunger Games" because I think it will grab young readers! GO USE YOUR CREDIT!!! :)
This book is a documentary with interesting facts. Don't buy it if you are looking for a novel. Nice short history of Lincoln's assassination.
I guess the annoying aspect for me was the narration. I felt like O'Reilly constantly slurred words together. Very distracting.
Yes, as long as it didn't star Bill O'Reilly! :)
Kate Rudd did an amazing job! She was Hazel Grace!
Wow...one of those books that stays with you, and stays with you! Very moving and funny! Wish I'd been that smart when I was a teenager!!! I really didn't want to cry, and yet I just couldn't get enough of the characters. I think John Green captured the emotions of them all! Excellent read! Thank you, John and your cast of wonderful people!
I really like learning some part of slavery history that I had no idea about! Very sad for most of the book, but of course, it's slavery!!! Nothing good about that institution!
Great read and great performance! You won't be sorry you used your credit!!! Really would like to know where the characters are now!!!
Loved the character development. Never have listened to this aspect of WWll, so also loved the history. Tragic though it was! Highly recommend!
OK...if you've read this one, you've read them all...don't even need to say how much I love these books! But hurry up with the next one...just have to know what happens to Roger and Jem!!! LOVE these books! I am so sad that I have to wait!
I'm so absolutely hooked on this series!!! I need rehab! And to think that the next two are not available on audible!!! A crime! Drums of Autumn ranks as my favorite next to the first one. I enjoyed the love story of Brianna and Roger and the reactions of Jamie and Claire in dealing with them. At times I wanted to scream to help Roger!!!! Just so well done! And, once again, Diana Gabaldon was superb. I've already started reading Fiery Cross (because rehab is full) and can hear her narration in my head because she made the characters come so alive for me! If you are reading this review, you are already hooked because you've read all the others. Get ready for a great ride...this one rocks!
OK, I'm addicted...I need rehab! I can't get enough of these books! I listen every minute I have. My gym time just seems to fly by! I told my husband I'm in love with Jamie...good thing he's fine with my being infatuated with fictional characters! My only slight criticism, and really slight... is that at this point I really do know that Jamie's hair is red...and I am now counting the number of times the adjective 'wry' is used. Ha-ha :) Davina Porter is the most amazing voice of all the characters! Thank you Diana and Davina! btw...audible..get the next book on audio...PLEASE!
Absolutely loved this book! My friend told me it just went on and on, but I didn't feel that way at all!!!! One of those books you don't want to stop listening to! In fact, I finished Part 1 of "Shantaram" thinking I needed a break from Jamie and Claire, but I can't take it. I've downloaded "Dragonfly in Amber" and am off to see what happened to the two lovers! Can't wait! Maybe I have a secret crush on Jamie! After 30 wonderful years of marriage...I can have a little literary fling!!!! :)
Really enjoyed learning what goes on in NK...wow, eye opening! Every time I read books like this, I am so thankful to be an American, and a woman in America. My heart goes out to the citizens of NK. My only downside is that I would have liked it to be more of a novel, and I felt the author jumbled characters and I was sometimes confused as to the timeline. But definitely worth the listen!
