I love Disney. I live in Florida. I've loved the other 4 books. I recently watched a special on Backstage Disney and saw many of the "secret" things that are written about in the series. It made me decide to take that particular tour this year.
Like Harry Potter, while it may have been written for a younger audience, I love every aspect of the story. I will admit I've always favored the villians at Disney - these books may make me change my mind. I smile, I laugh, I actually get teary throughout the book. I can't find a best part. I love this series from the first word to the last.
MacLeod brings the books alive. The accents, the attitudes. He does a great great job.
You THINK you know Disney....
I can't wait for Book 6.....this was SUCH a cliffhanger.....
Probably. The story was good. The relationships were sweet.
Obviously Dane. He made me smile.
I have not, to my recollection heard her before.
Extreme? No, but I did eventually become very very very irritated with a 16 year old constantly thinking of himself as "a man" and "a man would act like this" and " a MAN like him" ... he was 16. I got really tired of it by the end of the book. The rest of his character was fine. But the self-introspection got tiring.
All's well that ends well. I like that in a book.
Sure, the book was totally enjoyable. I'd listen again the second time for the more scientific information, after listening to the interview with Mr. Preston at the end.
Neither. It was pure entertainment. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Sure. Story kept me engaged until the last page. The characters were wonderful, even the bad ones. And I could listen to Scott Brick read me the alphabet.
Wouldn't that be a giveaway of part of the plot? There were several.
I'm considering listening to authors / books I usually wouldn't just because Mr. Brick is reading them to me.
Yup - a couple .....
The story held me to the very last page. Harlan Coben has a way of making you feel sad for the bad guys, bad for the good guys that are hurt. His relationships grab me and hold me thru the whole book.
Listening to Scott Brick makes any book enjoyable, but I also loved the character of Jake. I love Mr. Coben's descriptions of locations, which are full without being annoying. It took me a long long time to figure a couple things out. I think this was a great mystery, romance.
Of course it would be Jake. He was likeable. He was honorable. He was maybe not the brightest when the book started, but his character grew in proportion to the crap he was going thru, I think. He made me smile.
Really? Everything. I'd listen to Scott Brick read me the alphabet.
The last 10 minutes.
I think I'll go look for another Harlan Coben book to download. I believe I have a new favorite author.
I like this series very much. I like the continuing story of Sherlock & Savich. I love how she brings new characters in and creates relationships with established characters. I even like seeing Sean grow. Her spin off characters are wonderful.
I don't have a specific answer for this. I'm just not overly impressed by either narrator in general.
Paul Costanzo is a little "over the top" in my opinion. Rene Raudman's slushy "s" sound irritates me. I have no idea if it's actually HER inflection or what she uses for Sherlock and it's a small thing, but it never fails to make me cringe.
This has been my least favorite in the series so far; the story just didn't grab me, but I'm re-listening right now in anticipation of listening to Final Cut which I just ordered.
A less whiny Eve and a completely different ending.
I'm unfortunately invested. I've already purchased thru the end of the Taking Eve Trilogy, so yes, I'll listen. But I truly don't expect my reviews to get any better.
She can't do accents worth a damn. If she wants to hear a fake actor Cajun accent, she should listen to movie The Big Easy. She's too melodramatic. I just can't like her narrations.
I realize that this book was a history compilation, but there was SO much repetition from previous books. But I also know it's necessary if someone unwittingly comes in to a series this long in the middle ....
I can't believe I've waited with bated breath for the resolution to what happened to Bonnie. I'm so disappointed with the ending. It was such a let down.
After 12 books, I'm irritated with Joe RARELY having one name. Joe Quinn. I'm sick of "my Bonnie" .... I'm sick of Eve being the most brilliant, the most beautiful, the most sexy, the most intriguing, the smartest, the bravest, the most clever woman that's ever walked the earth. I'm sick of Joe's possessive jealous ravings - because of all the above qualities that Eve possesses. If the two of them would ever just TALK to one another maybe he wouldn't be so jealous and she wouldn't be so stupid. They're so busy jumping to conclusions and trying to one up each other and worry about how the relationship is and who loves who more that they never just sit on the stupid porch swing and hold hands and look at the sky.
I'm invested now. I NEED to know what happens to Bonnie. And I've read reviews on the next Trilogy. I'm invested until at least the end of that. So it's not that these are the BEST books I've ever read. They are FAR from that. But I'm INVESTED in the characters, God Save Me.
Almost anyone. I haven't like her narration since Book 1.
Quinn. See all above comments.
Please don't ever make this into a movie.
Mr. Hill has a talent equal to his father's. I wanted the listening to go faster, but I never wanted it to end. His visualizations are clear and, at times, terrible. I've been looking for a long long time for someone "now" to tell a horror story as well as Stephen King used to. Joe Hill is that someone.
