This is the best book I have read in some time. about two hours in I stopped and did a search for Owen Meany on the internet and was very dissapointed that it is fictional character. Irving has created a superb person and a very good story. it is full of lessons and the reader will be better for it after reading the book. I laughed, I cried and more than often sat in the car to listen to just that bit more. I bought the hard copy to read and to make notes at the many good parts of the book. This is not just fiction, it is self development. I have read three other books after Owen Meany and... I am spoiled for life, none makes the cut. If you have only one book to read, THIS IS THE ONE.
Not worth the time to listen to this, get the movie, sit through it, wonder what it's about, then forget it. That is what I have done, not saying you should!
Story is good to keep you at it. I think it is worth the credits and if you want something to read have a go.
The GREY MAN just goes on and on and on and on.... survives attacks by the worlds best assasination teams, wipes out eight men without one of them getting a shot off and he does it WITH HIS HANDS!!! The narrator makes it laughable with the voice changes, a grown man can not talk like a eight year old girl. I did not enjoy this book.
Enjoyed this one, easy listen. The story flowed well from the begining and kept me to it. Characters is good and the twist is there. If you listen well you wll "solve" the case before the book does it!!!
Good book to listen to. Story very well developed, more than enough twists to keep you going.
This started of as a nice story then had a twist and another twist and yet another, but here was long nothingness between those twists. I kept on listining to the end and are now on book two of the three. I like the "futureristic" feel, I like the characters but can Katniss be that out of it? Watch this space for my thoughts on the rest of the trilogy!!!
It is good, Harlan Coben delivers everytime. He does not dissapoint. I would buy any of his books for a nice read. I now drink Makers Mark bourban.
It was good the narrator had the thing down. The author know how to do this and entertains and draw the reader in, but so often loose the reader again. I think it is to long. The story ended to abrupt as if the author lost intrest and "skipped" across it. It felt like the objective was to write a 36 hour 52 minute book. The lead in was fast and full of action, the middle part just crawled on and on and then the end just like that!!!! Still good liked it.
Read it and make up your own mind, on the fence with this one.
I did not like it, I liked it, not like, like, not like......... Nothing mindblowing, good twists and surprises but had to work hard at getting to the end.
