Vanished is a example of the best of slight of hand magic. The book captured my attention from the beginning and led me through a myriad of clues that were there but unseen by well worked misdirection. I loved Holter Graham's narration.
I have read this book about 25 years ago. I wanted to re-read it before I read the new Danny Terrance book written by Steven King. I forgot how great this story really is. The narrator did well in bringing this story to life. I recommend it to others.
After reading Hunger Games I was not sure a dystopian book could compare. I found the entire Divergent series to be thought provoking and interesting. Allegiant provided a climax to the series and tied up all the necessary loose ends. I appreciated Emma Galvin and Aaron Stanford giving voice to the two main characters. This helped the final book be my favorite.
No wonder this is a classic. I found the style to be refreshing and the narrators were superb in telling the story. I did not expect to be enthralled as I was by this book. It was a great Halloween book for me. I would recommend this version of the book to all.
The second book in the series does justice to the author. He has captured one of the fears of a lot of people and used it to develop a sit on the edge of your seat thriller. I loved it. Again Holter Graham did an excellent job with narration.
Jaws was certainly scary in it's images of a big fish, but this book captured my attention. I tried to listen every chance I got. The writing was good and the narration made it even better. I would recommend this book.
Bill O'Reilly attempted to reproduce his historical narrative style with the story of Jesus. The presentation was novel and fun in the ...he had three days to live...sort of way. Unfortunately, I struggled from near the beginning...it seems possible that Hebrew scholars were not interviewed as his naming God as Jehovah is inaccurate. From that point on I was unsure of his scholarship. The things he chose to leave out or his conjecture was often unclear as to the motive. I know that he said God told him to write this book, and perhaps he did but perhaps a month or so more preparation would have helped a great deal. Pinhead or Patriot, unsure, but certainly the end result was a well spun story.
Jeff Lindsay has completed this series with such a wonderful twist. I love how he resolved my angst at having hopes for Dexter to get away with all he has done. Lindsay's reading of his own book was fun as he knew exactly how each character should sound and the emphasis of their dialog.
I recently watched Jaws the movie during Shark week and remembered that I had read Jaws about 35 years ago...I remembered it had a better story line than the movie so I decided to reread it. I am thankful my memory serves me so well...I love the book and appreciate all the detail the book provides. Brody and Hooper are great antagonists in the book, but that is lost in the movie. The electricity between Brody's wife and Hooper is lost in the movie. I thoroughly enjoyed rereading this book.
Simon Vance did a great job reading this book, but the story was not as exciting as the other books. It was appropriate though for it to be weaker and slower since it dealt with the end of the lives of the "4". I would still read it though.
