Yes, I think the narrator was overall great. If I had to give him a piece of constructive criticism.. I would say that he wasn't the best with female voices (most male narrators aren't), but he still was great with differentiating between the difference male characters.
The main character, Dan. He was multidimensional and interesting.
Rhythm and inflection at certain times where these aspects are needed (during the part when LD raps; during the trial).
When a celebrity lawyer seeks truth against all odds.
This was not my favorite legal drama audiobook (that would have to be reserved for a John Grisham story....The Testament? or The Firm?) BUT it is worth listening to.
A much better version of The Road by Cormac McCarthy...not to knock CM....I loved some of his other novels.
When Hig is walking into the perimeter with the villians on his tail, and Bangley uses the radio to get him through.
Yes. It made me pay more attention to my dog, Sonny. It made me realize how much I appreciate him as a real companion.
Not a plot driven book...but really...Such great writing and narration.
It was too hard to follow...and not in a good way.
the flashback scenes were pretty good
The plot is a "supermarket mystery," but the author's style is trying too hard to be artistic and literary...pick one and stick with it.
the end was good. the beginning was very tedious.
raspy, lacks tone, lacks inflection
Christina Schwarz is not a bad writer. She has a knack for vivid description, but I feel as if she's been wronged by a few too many men, and likes to vilify them in a way that is predictable and stereotypical.
Unable to put down ~ Uniquely Fantastic
Bel Canto, but I liked State of Wonder better...because Bel Canto's ending was dissatisfying for me.
"STOP THE BOAT" scene
"Who knew a doctor of pharmacology could be interesting without being a felon"....but no that wouldn't sell the movie to the masses...so I guess I'd go with..."Conquer the Rainforest, your Fears and your Peers in a State of Wonder"
If you liked other audiobooks by Ann Patchett...or any Margaret Attwood...or any other quality writer...listen to this book! Also, regarding the narrator; at first I thought the slight lisp would bother me...but no...Hope Davis is a great narrator...she has a great understanding of tone and inflection...and the lisp becomes endearing.
Yes. The main characters are complex and original. They are exciting and unpredictable. However, there are a few predictable scenes, but just enough to make the plot understandable.
Most of the novels I like fall flat at the end, but I though this one had a perfect falling action and ending.
Leading Character: Amber, because she is one of kind, but in a believable way. Supporting Character: Jackie, because we all have known a "Jackie" in our life
I don't usually write reviews, but I wanted to take the time to review this book, because I was unsure about buying it at first.....not a well known author....not a ton of great reviews...but I was so pleasantly surprised that it was one of those books that I could not stop listening to...so I have to spread the word!
