Yes. It was a beautifully written book and the narration was of the highest quality.
Hattie herself. She was such a proud woman but sometimes our pride can have unintented consequences.
This was such a sad story. I think after reading this you can't help but do some soul searching and reflect on how you raise or are raising your children.
Kristen was a good narrator - on the other hand Emma's book was so boring.
From page one to the end.
Shallow characters - I never really cared what happened to any of them with the exception of Bobby's girlfriend. Thank goodness for her she walked away from this awful cast of characters called a "family." Without a doubt the most pathetic portrayal of a young girl's loss of chosen lost of virginity, totally void of any feeling. Emma claimed the daughter was a virgin yet wrote her first love scene as though she has been around the block more than once.
In the middle
No other book but the movie Pleasantville came to mind
The performance was adequate in comparison to the story itself. Odd stops in the middle of sentences. The music was really bad!
I knew that Jonas would have to take Gabrielle with him once he realized he was going to be released. His love for the child was touching.
I read this book because I had purchased it for my 12 yr old grandson last year and wanted to be able to discuss it with him. Overall I enjoyed The Giver and would recommend it to adults.
I would absolutely listen to this book again. The main story line was so ridiculous that you had to believe it possible in this day and age. Anything that makes us laugh at ourselves is good for the soul.
I don't think it kept me on the edge of my seat....comedy doesn't do that. I just wondered what crazy character was around the next corner.
Guy of course, but the entire cast was excellent. I laughed out loud at so many parts but I particulary loved his land lady.
Now why would anyone do that?
I am a big fan of old radio detective stories which this story reminded me of. I would say this book is a cross between The Thin Man, Jack Benny and a PG-13 sex farce. Loved every word of it.
Big disappointment here. I have loved the previous Odd Thomas books but this one left me yearning for the original characters in Book 1. Too far fetched. Too dark. Seems Thomas forgot the advice from his long time friend Little Ozzie to keep it light. I missed the occassional lighthearted fun moments from his previous adventures.
Yes. I have friends who have said that book 5 was really good and I trust their opinion.
Everything. He is definitely one of my favorites.
Yeah - take a break and read something light.
Yes! I was so drawn in by Odd from the very first chapter. This story just flows and makes you hungry for more at every turn.
There were so many such moments but none like the one when Odd releases Stormy to the next world.
I am not a fan of stories involving murder but this book had me from the get go. Odd is such a great down to earth guy who did all of these wonderful heroic deeds for the good of his fellow citizens. David Aaron Baker made me believe each character and I loved so many of them. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next adventure! Dean Koontz is a fantastic storyteller. The descriptions were so vivid - I felt so strongly for all of these characters. I can't wait to get my hands on the next adventure. Absolute wonderful read (or should I say listen?)
Human Suffering Love
I had never read a WWII novel from the aspect of what German Families experienced.
Allan has the ability to make your "feel" what you are reading. He takes you to the brink of tragedy and pulls you back!
It is so hard to choose as all of the characters are mesmerizing. I guess I would have to say Ma Ma. She was such a complex character who kept her true humanity hidden just below the surface.
Absolutely loved this book and would recommend it to anyone. I thought the parallels to our current political climate was chilling. So much name calling going on - placing labels on people and demanding that we all conform to one groups religious beliefs. Dangerous thinking. I think this should be required reading in High Schools.
Keeps your attention
The final chapter was worth the wait for what was revealed.
I thought the book might have been a better read if read by someone other than the author. While I believed what he wrote, he often times lacked the vocal expression of a professional.
That the medical field is starting to pay attention to people who detail out of body experiences rather than just dismiss them.
All in all it was a compelling book. It was a little slow when he detailed the medical proof from the aspect of a neurosurgeron - but I understand that the book was written to help his colleagues in the medical field understand and believe what he had experienced.
I couldn't get past Ann Marie Lee's monotone voice. Her expression never changes. Dull.
Yes - it was the material that was terrible not the reader.
There should have been a disclaimer on this book warning audiences who have a relatively knowledgable grasp of the English Language to steer clear.
