It was exciting engaging & brilliant
It certainly did. I crochet while I listen because I love reading but don't have the time. This way I can do both but many times I found I'd become so engrossed I forgot to crochet. I even played it while driving - every spare minute I could get I listened
I really enjoyed her - she kept pace with the story. Her interpretation made the story more realistic. Some readers can undermine & spoil the book but that was so not the case here.
All of it. It was an implausible tale told in a very plausible & educating manner & a lot of thought went into its plot not to mention how well researched the book had to be
This book was fabulous. The only other book it equals is 'Second Glance' which I thoroughly enjoyed. These two books had amazing twists that totally had me hooked. I just couldn't let go.
'Leaving Home' was wonderful. The 4 narrators were just stunning. They had me hooked. I couldn't stop listening. I never guessed how it would end & it was Jodi Piccoult at her very best. I must read more of her books but I totally recommend this & 'Second Glance' . The elements of true history & the knowledge & understanding of elephants indicates the amount of research done my MS Piccoult & the elegant way it is wound into the story leaves one thinking about it days - no, weeks, after the book is finished. I love reading & love listening. I have to say I read 'Second Glance' about 2 years ago & was shocked to find that though it left such an impression on me, I realised I had actually read it about 3 years ago & was a book I talked about to friends before but had forgotten the name & aut her of it. The subject though had really struck a cord with me as had 'Leaving Time'.
These books are delicate & beg to be read. I should also say I rarely write reviews but I just couldn't resist with these books.
Anyone who has read the Celestine Prophesy will recognise the similar conceptual idea of both books. I really enjoyed the Repairman Jack series & jumped to buy this one barely reading the summery which is how I bought all the other RJack series. However I was severely disappointed by it & wished I'd spent my money / credit on something else.
I can't believe the 4 & 5 star reviews, they really mislead me. This is not a book that comes anywhere near the Repairman Jack series. This was really a disappointment. I wrote a review for one of those books that was the antithesis to this one.
Absolutely. I'm not sure how I came across F.Paul Wilson, but I'm so glad I did. I love it when I find a good - no great - author & he turns out to have written 12 books in one series. I love Repairman Jack & I love the combination of fiction/supernatural/thriller which are my faves & I LOVE the fact that there are TWELVE books to read. I'm getting a bit worried though as I'm up to to book 6. Only 6 more to go. Then, god willing, with a bit of luck, ill find another great series
He can easily keep up with Dean Koonz & Stephen King & that's saying something. He perhaps better than Peter Straub.
He's very good although he doesn't change his voice much like some readers, you still get the different characters & the tension is there when needed.
Neither -I just loved it. An hour before a book is due to finish, I down load the next & I'm ready to start the next book when the Audible voice over at the end of the book starts. I'm ready to start the next book straight away.
I've said it all. These are must-read books. I've missed my favorite tv shows cause I just can't stop listening.
It's definitely one of the best audible books I've listened to. I listen in my lunch hour and had to turn it off with 50 minutes to go - but I JUST COULDN'T DO IT. So I listened to it holding my hand over my ear even tho I'm on a switchboard. I just had to turn my iPad off every time a call came in. It was truly great with some real twists & turns - especially at the end.. I loved it. Also Tanya Eby is such a good narrator - I'm definitely going to look out for her
40 minutes from the end -to say more would give it away - great ending, totally out of nowhere
A narrator that didn't sound moronic. I love John lescoart & I've read & then listened to nearly all his books but this set my teeth on edge. The narrator maybe. Thinks its amusing but it's moronic - I just couldn't stand it. I persevered for 2 hours but that was it. Sorry
Absolutely I have read many Stephen King books & listened to some to one he read 'Bag of Bones' & loved it, I listen to lots of books I have read & enjoyed over the years but I occasionally come across 1 I just can't get into. This was one of those
Ive already had lots since this & I'd love to listen to "The Stand" but for some reason I can't get it in Australia
Mainly disappointment. This should have been a book I enjoyed
A storey that didn't take so long to develop as this did & I lost interest
I found it borinng
I don't know - I didnt read past the 1st 2 chapters
The way the stories built to a great end. I love these books
This one of my favourite authors he has researched his books in all ways & relates each story in a way that produces an on-the-edge-of-the-seat excitement every time. I've almost listened to each of his stories again. I have to say I've listened to a good many books I had previously read & I find this narrator &author complement each other perfectly.
He did nothing wrong. This one of the great narrators - he is perfect for Harry Bosch. I've read all these books over the years & have therefore imagined & pictured them a certain way. Len brings the book to life in a way that complements both the authors story & my imagination.
It was exciting & mesmerising i couldn't turn it off
All of it. I've read all Michael Connelly's books over the years & when I bought my iPad & started to listen to books while I crocheted, I found I'd forgotten some of the stories & so, decided to read them again. I was not disappointed. This one I particularly enjoyed as it had me on the edge of my seat many times - I finished it in 1day & evening as I couldn't turn it off.
Nothing this reader was fabulous, he made it exciting but plausible. I would always read anything he narrated.
Not an audible book. This is one of my favourite authors. Over the years I've read every one of his books & buy new ones without even reading the back. However the reading & interpretation of the book totally spoiled the way I thought of jack Reacher. He even spoke differently. I was really disappointed & didn't listen for more than about an hour. In fact I would like to exchange it.
No I lost interest
He is what really spoiled the book for me I didn't like his interpretation at all.
I actually felt really sad, angry & disappointed because I know what a great storyteller Lee Child is & how good this book really is. I hate to think of others missing out on the experience of reading lee's books because they don't enjoy this.
