The plot, the performer, the author. AND I really liked Ken Follett's World Without End and The Pillars of the Earth. This seems like a bad addition to the Fall of Giants, which I didn't care for.
Go back to the first page.
His accents were absolutely awful. particularly the young women from New York. Oy!
Yes, I was sorry when that ended....
The narrator's beautiful accents and the descriptions of the beaches, the people, including the famous actors and their vices. And I enjoyed the funny parts about the director's plastic surgery results.
When all the characters met at the end
No. It was lovely, like a stroll through a beautful Italian piazza
I loved that Cheryl Strayed had never hiked and decided to hike an 1100 mile trail. It was outrageously stupid and courageous at the same time. I loved her moxy and the fact that she never read the books about the trail until the night before. I loved the metaphor of her tumultuous life to the story of her journey on the Pacific Crest Trail.
My favorite part was when she boot fell off the mountain and then she angrily threw the other one over the hill, too.
She seemed very realistic and exactly the right voice for a street wise yet vulnerable young Cheryl.
How Not to Plan a Hiking Trip
No. It was so memorable, I wouldn't read it again. But I'd recommend it to dear friends, which I've already done....
Island Beneath the Sea, The Help..
The ending when the house was burning down
I like anything to do with Egyptology, archaeology, and the paranormal. So I thought this should be a great mixture of all of it. The promise of a treasure, the suspense leading up to the final destination are very good, but it just a tease!
With the constant twist and turns of the journey and the clock ticking with a flood/dam release imminent.
Nothing. I thought he was alright.
I'd just say there's better fiction out there for Egyptophyles: Try the River God. Excellent.
