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.
The book was okay but no remarkable pulp piece. What gives this book a boost is the full cast narration. If the production had limited the music to 5 seconds rather than 30 seconds at the end of each chapter, it would have been better.
This book really caught me by surprise. The major reason for my reading it was that it was to be released as a movie soon. I didn't know what it was about, but was pleasantly surprised as to the format, content and twists in these stories. It was a great and fun ride to take with the two performers. I really recommend this audiobook!!!
One of the better Stephen King books. And as far as Audiobooks, definitely one of the better ones I listened too.
The story moved along briskly and definitely page turning towards the end.
I liked his voice and characterizations.
Under the Blue Umbrella
This book is definitely worth a credit. Long enough to be intricate but not too long. King is back to real suspense.
This was an okay book. Nothing spectacular. Just a nice easy read. The Narrators did a very good job.
Narration: Very well done EXCEPT for the voice of Lestat. The narrator was supposed to inflect a French accent but instead opted for a Transylvanian one.
Overall: The story is fine but could have used a nice editing job by deleting four chapters in the middle. I really did not need to hear for 1 1/2 hours of the "13 levels of evolution"... Really? This is a vampire story., but Rice manages to squeeze in her own opinions of creation and the the purpose of good and evil. I don't mind a good philisophical discussion but not while I think I'm reading a fictional vampire story.
This book takes place 6 months after the first Private. I really enjoyed the characters and the "co" writer is the same as the first one. Unfortunately the next books have a different "co" writer and I hope they keep true to the characters. I recommend that Private is the first book you read to get to know the beginnings of these people. This book can stand alone but it is much more fun knowing the history. Good book overall.
I read all the reviews about the writer being a poor narrator. I felt just the opposite. First off I had to read the sequel. I felt what better person to give life to his characters than the author himself. It was he that came up with the characters and he would know the way he intended the characters to sound. The story itself is not bad. I was thrilled to see a new outlook upon the Oz story. This time seen from the male point of view. I do recommend this book and the author as narrator.
Having read Private L.A. I wanted to get to know more about the series. So I listened to the first book of the series... Private. I was very pleased in what I heard. Excellently narrated, this book was very polished. I enjoyed the many plots and subplots that were happening simultaneously, Can't wait to read the next ones,
I finished this book in two sittings. Typical Patterson... it flowed along fairly quickly. It was great to meet new characters and not be held down by a series. If you do not know Patterson's other series, and I'm not familiar with all, this is a great introduction to his writings.
This was a long book and was enjoyed over a couple of days. The narrator does a superb job in telling the story.
Definitely NOT the Wizard of Oz!
His inflections and character development with his voice over the course of the book was magnificent!
It made me laugh hysterically at the end with all the miscommunication.
If you are expecting WICKED the Musical... you have the wrong book. The musical was based on characters in this book. But in no way is it the definitive narration. This is an adult book. True it is a fairy talk, but an adult one. With political and religious implications. I highly recommend this book for adults, who can put the silly musical behind them. There is no "Defying Gravity" song in this book!
