This is a good solid story and I liked Stephen King and Blair Browns narration. (I didn't find the music a distraction as others have posted, which almost stopped me from downloading) I think the story was a good one until the "fantasy" parts started. Also when I thought the book was coming to an end, it wasn't and went on and on so that I wished it would just end. Overall it was a good listen.
This book is up there with some of the best books I have read or listened to. If I wasn't listening to the book I was thinking about it. I downloaded this book because of the reviews that listeners gave it and I was not dissappointed. I would highly recommend this book. I was sad when the journey ended and it was over.
I loved this book.The narrator did a fantastic job bringing the characters alive. The story was good and was very thought provoking. The only thing this book was missing was the real motivation to save JFK, and why not only one man, but two would spend over 4 years of their lives to accomplish the task. Maybe I am too young to appreciate JFK? I still loved the book.
The reason I picked this book is because Jenna Lamia is one of the narrators and again she has done an awesome job. She really amazes me with her range of voices for characters. As far as the book, I almost didn't finish it after the first hour listening. It just wasn't holding my interest. There is too much extra information that isn't needed for the story to flow. All in all I did listen to the whole book and found the story something to think about after it was over but the story is just okay.
This book was a great listen. The only reason I downloaded it was because it was narrated by Jenna Lamia and every book she has narrated I have really enjoyed. She is a great story teller. So this book was a surprise, I enjoyed it that much. Velva Jean tells her story and you fall in love with her naive, honesty. I will proably listen to this one again.
I think this was a good story but it didn't hold my attention as I listened my mind was wandering which it does not when I am listening to a good book. I was disappointed in this but I think it just wasn't my kind of thing.
This book is rich in history with characters that you fall in love with. I really didn't want this book to end, but when it did I thought about it for days. If you liked The Help you will also like this book.
This book was truly entertaining. The characters tell there stories each with there own voice and you fall into there world. The author keeps you laughing through the horrors and tender moments of the early 1960's in a world where whites and blacks struggle to coexist in Mississippi. I loved this book.......
The narration of this book was excellent. I enjoyed the story and the characters. It was a great listen.
I loved this book. I thought the narraters did a great job telling these tales. I have listened to a few books and I was really impressed with how they told their stories. I had a hard time turning this book off.
