I can't finish this one. 50% useless fluff to the point of being insulting. I felt like the author didn't think his reader/listeners could retain anything said in the previous paragraphs. Very repetitive on descriptive information. 25% somewhat interesting facts and a slim 25% on action. Almost like a repeat of National Treasure but not nearly as good. When I find myself fast forwarding through a book I know it's time to turn it off.
The characters and the narrator!
No and only because the stories don't appeal to me but I will be sure to keep watching for performances to come.
I didn't have an extreme reaction but it did make me laugh and smile with a feeling of warmth and understanding of all of the characters.
While it may seem a simple story it's actually just a joy to listen to and shouldn't be casually passed over. It really was a perfect listen!
She could have come up with a more realistic way for her time travel theme to have taken place.
No. I was bored and found it so unbelievable I couldn't finish. I read the whole Outlander series twice and listened to it three times, this doesn't even compare.
This book tore my heart apart. Excellent writing, excellent narrator (hope to see many more from Robin Miles). This is a must listen.
I really tried to listen and it had so many possibilities but if the writer had left out 1/2 of the filler words it would have been a hit. I know the wording needs to be of the time period but it was like the writer was trying to find how many ways to say the slang words God's teeth, God's death, God's eyes, blah, blah, blah. Just too much. It's like a book that had too much profanity. I finally had to put it away and maybe (that's a big maybe) I'll finish it when there is just nothing left to listen to on a rainy day. Too bad, I would have loved to listen to the whole series but won't risk buying another one.
I've loved them all, Will Patton is a terrific narrator and should actually play the part of Dave if they ever make another movie, can't wait for the next one Mr. Burke, get busy...
I had great hopes for this book but the first thing that turned me off was more vampire plots, I just can't get into it now nor in my childhood days. I can't see what the American obsession is with all these story lines. I loved The Stand, this is not even close. I listened to it all but would not buy a follow up book. Over all I only gave it a 2 because I liked the beginning. Wish it had been better.
This book just outright stunk. There was maybe 1/8 of the book worth listening too. I finally turned it off in the last hour of what felt like Bible study. So much potential totally lost.
I have listened to all of James Lee Burke's books on audio in sequence and this is my favorite so far. Burke has such a wonderful way of making you feel like you are truly "there" each step of the way. As far as the narrator Mark Hammer, I love him! The first book was with Will Patton and I love him too but I've not had a problem with Mark's reading. On to the next book...
