This is a nice, easy going enjoyable book. Enjoyable but not memorable
Perfect for the gym!
What a treat to read something with such a good underlying message but with such a well crafted storyline. It was one of those books that left me wishing for the story to continue. The author very effectively delivered glimpses into a world seen through the eyes of a child, and then added on experiences so we could share in the evolution. Really it was captivating from the beginning, and the main character (David) was wonderful company.
I read this book many years ago and loved it - when I saw it on Audible I decided enough time had lapsed that it would seem fresh again. I am so glad I did. The performance is outstanding and the story itself is as well written and engaging as I remembered. It's a very long book and I have thoroughly enjoyed every bit. The characters and plot are well developed and multi layered and the nostalgic look back at 1940's era New York is a treat.
It seemed like I spent too much time wondering how the different pieces of the story fit together, but once I was 30 minutes into it - things came together and this was a decent book.
So glad I just discovered this book earlier this year - finished just in time for part 2 to be released! A well executed, multi-layered story kept me fully engaged and anxious to know the fate of these wonderful characters. The narration is excellent as well.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable book, Jane is a pleasure to listen too and it is so nice to have the author reading her own words, so we know the nuances are exactly as designed.
Fresh Disasters is an undeniably entertaining, mostly typical Stone Barrington tale - but it is somewhat more vulgar and sloppy than other Stuart Woods works.
I finished this book and then wished I hadn't invested my time. Unimpressive is the adjective that comes to mind.
