It is just a great story which I had not read for decades. I truly enjoyed listening to it.
The scene when Mary confronts Collin is very memorable. That is where the story turns.
I listened to several samples before choosing this reader. She has an English accent that is very understandable and easy to listen to. It was an excellent performance for the story.
The book did make me laugh at times.
I enjoy going back and listening to a children's classic occasionally. I would definitely recommend this one.
I was amazed that I could see such a difference in writing styles, chapter to chapter. This must have been a real challenge to put this story together with so many gifted minds creating it. The story itself was good, but the variety of writing styles in the book was captivating. I am definitely going to look for more books by a couple of these writers.
I wasn't endeared to any particular character.
I find some readers are just easier to follow and listen to than others. I enjoyed the readers of this book.
No. I probably listened to it in 3 segments.
I do not know. I prefer audio books to listen to when I am quilting or doing other things.
Didn't really have one. I guess the detective who is telling the story.
The description of the scene on the beach.
No, just very fascinated with the details of the investigation of the explosion of TWA 800. I like a book that makes me think and question AND is not predictable. This book falls into the category of historical fiction.
I have never been a fan of any particular author before Nelson DeMille. He definitely does his research which makes the books so interesting to me. The Charm School is another favorite.
The second half of the book. The characters developed and the story was more engaging.
Already have: The Heart Shaped Box (loved it!)
The intensity at the end when Vic was trying to save her son kept me on the edge of my seat.
Had some trouble wrapping my head around "Christmas Land" early in the book. By mid-book though, I was hooked into the story (no, not by teeth--read the book, you'll understand.)
fascinating, action, lengthy
Just finished Inferno. Liked it better.
Reader does a great job of differentiating voices so that you can see and hear the characters. He reads with the inflection of speech.
No. I just thought it was dragged out a little.
I really enjoyed this book. I like a well written thriller once in awhile. I was annoyed at the insertion of irritating rock music between section. If it had not been for that, I would rate the performance a 5.
Yes, I was on the edge of my seat through most of the book. At times, I thought I could predict what was coming but I would be wrong. I like that in a book.
The scene when Jude returns to visit his dying father--or to be around his father's dogs. Lots of surprises and excitement.
The dead return for their own.
There were many indepth nonfiction articles in this books, some very fascinating when the truth was exposed; however, I felt they were a little too wordy. I picked the ones that interested me and skimmed the others.
Not applicable because each chapter is a different research article.
The article on the hair color empire and the one on birth control were my favorite articles. I also found the one on the Challenger explosion and the Enron fiasco very revealing.
I think I would have enjoyed this more to read an article periodically for its facts and explanation instead of reading the book cover-to-cover.
