Prequel to my favorite zombie series that is as entertaining as the Zombie Fallout series. I am going to the Indian hill series next as he has not disappointed me yet. If you love rampant sarcasm, quick one liners all mixed with some drama this book is for you too!!
This book is pure entertainment at its finest. It's not going to solve world hunger or bring any epiphanies about world peace,but if you are looking to laugh and cry and get attached to characters this book is a winner.
I could not put The Spirit Clearing aside--and I did not want to do anything while I was listening for fear I would miss something, a sarcastic remark or a pivotal moment. This also resolves several question that were left hanging in the zombie fallout series. I am going to listen to them again as this reminded me how much I enjoyed them the first go round!
I went to Mark Tufo's website and I get the definite impression that he channels Mike Talbot..
The storyline is very good but the abridgment leaves something to be desired. Much is lost in the translation. It was confusing-especially between the last two chapters.
A solid first novel. Interesting concept. I figured it out pretty early but that did not detract from the story. I enjoyed the way it moved from present day to the past and back again as a means to explain the storyline. The listener gets hints all the way through. I did have a difficult time suspending disbelief when it came to the extreme aggressiveness of the interview. It was more like a police interrogation with the amount of hostility. I may be naive, but I did not buy it. Again, it did not distract.
I have 2 junk filled rooms cleaned beautifully because I was so entertained
Now I need the next book
A very engaging story. Well written and well read. It is reminiscent of the Hunger Games series and the Divergent series in theme and tone but stands very well on its own. The characters are well developed. I highly recommend this book. I will definitely purchase the next in the series.
Outstanding book made so much more intense because it is real. I generally read scifi and dystopian novels but felt compelled to try this book and I was not disappointed. It is well written and the author does an amazing job of helping the reader feel like they are witnessing everything play out.
I cried in frustration and happiness. I am rarely moved so strongly. I highly recommend this book. I felt compelled to complete the book in one sitting and struggled to set it aside to go to bed and stayed up way too late before forcing myself to sleep.
There are lots of dashed hopes, ups and downs, and a general roller coaster ride to hell and back. I was on that roller coaster in spite of the knowledge that I knew the eventual outcome.
I found myself looking everyone and everything up online. Susannah Cahalan was brutally honest and utilized all the data available to make sense of this period of her life. Again, it is an amazing book. Highly recommended!!
It is a great premise with lots of promise but it was poorly executed. I am not a big Patterson fan...might have read/listened to one or two of his books. Zoo was predictable and preachy as another reviewer put it. The science was shaky and the answer came to the main character via an epiphany--it was just too easy. Too much suspension of disbelief required along with an extremely low opinion of human-kind turned great potential into a flop in this readers opinion.
Frameshift seems to diverge from Robert Sawyers other novels. It is a good book, but my least favorite of his novels. Parts of it were exceptional but it seemed to skip around a lot and took too long to tie the story lines together. I almost gave up about 2 1/2 hrs into it...but because it was Sawyer I stuck with it. The the last 3rd is pretty good and deals with similar subject matter as many of his other novels. Probably will not listen more than once. Good but not Great!
