The performance was supurb.
Dan of course. Because he's a fellow alcoholic
When Jack Torrence appeared.
Not as good as The Shining, yet what could come close, Stephen King accomplished.
This is not Gone Girl this is The Good Girl. The only thing the have In common is the word girl. By itself it reminded me of latter books by Steven King. A well thought out "mystery" woven through wonderful character development. The 4 narrators did s great job! No spoilers here... Just expect a good story.
No subtext in this "mystery" I came up with two very different story lines which could have been a lot more fun. But this novel is just what it appears to be. Nothing twisty or terribly different. A little disappointing to me at least. But a nice way to spend a rainy day listening.
This is pure King prose. Not so much a thriller but more of a character driven mystery. Ok for a quick read but not notable.
Many people (including me) will compare this to Bossypants. I liked it better and thought it to be less preachy and more funny. If you are in the 47-53 age group you will really like this and identify with Amy Poehler.
Wil Wheaton doesn't distinguish between characters. Not a very good novel I expected a lot more from this performance. Bad
I thought the beginning of this book was cute and a little funny but that's all this novel had to offer. It ended up being a long stretch of the same joke(?). You tend to pity the main character more than laugh at him. A little disappointing after reading the main reviews. It wasn't till after I read the book that I saw some of the mediocre reviews. And that's what this novel is... mediocre.
I thought this audio book was a cut above most of the other mysteries that are currently available. There is a reason it is on the top ten list. I've recommended it to several friends already. I haven't read any of Liane Moriarty books before, so I was pleasantly surprised by such a well crafted novel. Yes, it is basically about women, but I found it very engrossing. It addresses a few hot topics in child rearing and relationships in a very modern and exciting way. This may not be everyone's cup of tea but if you like a good story, good mystery and thought provoking novel, this book is for you.
According to the reviews I read I was prepared to be blown away by this accounting of an ex-mafioso. What I got was just an okay book. This is not genre defining nor is it that good. Just average. Don't have any expectations and you might marginally enjoy it.
It was a very smart and scientific book that made you think and pay attention, yet had a very fun and funny way of delivering.
No spoilers here.
I rarely give 5 stars for a review but this was an exceptional book. And it was perfect for an audio book. The Narrator was excellent. One of the best audible.com books I've ever read. If you like science with a sense of humor, this book is for you.
The "hero" is nothing more than an uneducated killing machine.
Anyone trying not to impersonate a Texas accent
If you are in the military you'll probably love this book. I gained a better insight as to how this kind of person thinks and acts. I'm just not very impressed with his glorification of war.
