With all of the songs, everyone I know says they skipped over them while reading TLOTR. I enjoy them performed by the reader. There's also info in the songs that you miss if you skip them.
This is the absolute best way to experience the music of Middle Earth.
Probably nothing by the author. I'd give the narrators a shot. They did their work well.
I know that the world is full of horrible people. I know that this book reflects that. This is just not what I enjoy, vindictive, selfish characters that never seem to have any redeeming value.
The lady cop. I can't remember her name. She's the only one who seemed likable. Margo, Nick's sister was ok, but she was snarky and mean in her own way. She was loyal, though.
I know art demands a reaction. I guess if that is what the author wants, she got it. But to go for a bad reaction just for reaction's sake seems cheap to me. I just really disliked the book. It never got better, either. I kept expecting some sort of turn that would redeem ... something. I would recommend not reading this. Some people loved it. Not me.
Audio is the only way I read this particular book, so I'm biased, but I LOVED the narrator's performance.
Hazel Grace is a treasure.
I truly loved this book. Yeah, you'll cry. But there is too much life in this book to be ignored. Brilliantly written, brilliantly narrated, just that good.
I think Jerry, the brother. He was so interesting.
Not laugh or cry, but I did think about it and what the characters were up to when I wasn't listening to it.
Great book that gives you glimpses of the past, and the tale of the unwinding mystery kept me hooked until the end.
