I'm a sucker for intrigue, gardens, ghost and romance. This book has them all. Nice listen.
I usually enjoy Jodi Picoult's work but this one was a disappointment. The best part of this book was when they were reflecting on the past and the characters of the haunting. It seemed to me that the modern day characters just felt like filler noise and trying to keep them straight was a challenge. I stopped reading at chapter 45 because it all seemed lost to reflecting and ramblings.
No, It was too fragmented. Unfortunately it felt like work to listen to it and try to stay with the story.
His ability wasn't the problem as much as the story he was working with. The gravel of his voice got old.
I enjoyed the journey, but got a headache from listening to the rambling, philosophical rant that was the end. I just wanted it over after a few minutes.
Some authors tie up their ending with a bow, but this one is a long discombobulated braid of rope that seems to hang the entire story. A lot like the Goldfinch. I felt chained to listen to it because of the time I had invested.
I would have thought so until the end was so frayed. It just blew it.
I wish Nora Roberts and others with such amazing talent would stop using the Lords name in vain when other terms would be just as effective in painting a character or lack there of. It's unnecessary and feels out of place in most of her work. I find it offensive. I'm compelled to no longer listen or read anymore of her work. The way she puts the term in each and every book is like she is wanting to hurt the spirit of all her Christian readers. I'd bet she would never use the word Allah that way, so why God? I don't know one person who speaks that way. As they say, if you don't like it, turn the channel This is my choice, you will have to make your own. The story would have been so much better with some consideration, but even then this one came up short.
I was glad it was over.
Unique, Multidimensional,and intriguing.
This story plays on a lot of the technology that are rumored to have developed by the Third Recht. I found this to be intriguing for how it was being developed during that time and how it was used and applied to present day and was a loop and weave within this story.
I enjoyed this book when I had the time to really absorb the pace. It wasn't a mindless kind of listen, It made me ponder on some of the technology that may actually exist on some level.
For me this story was out of the box. I tend to like a writer who can take a historic subject and expand on it the way Dean Koontz did this one.
The best! Loved it!
All of them! It's the way they bounce off each other.
Incredible! His ability to change his voice for each character and lend them characteristics and color is amazing. One of his voices reminded me of the comedian Ron White with a breath of bourbon. Fantastic! I'll be going back to find more of his narrations.
Yes! I listened in the car, while I worked and at night I even turned the TV off in the evening so I could listen.
I always enjoy how John Grisham uses my stomping grounds in his books. I think Dothan, Panama City etc the entire Tri state area should have a John Grisham appreciation day. If you enjoyed reading A Time to Kill you'll love this book, but even if you've never read a Grisham novel give this one a listen. I'll be looking for this one on film.
I marathoned a listen of the book Envy over the weekend and considering the story held me captive during one of my favorite pass times of college football. Alabama had a bye week and to say this book filled that gap is a huge compliment to Sandra Brown.
The story flows beautifully and I don't recall a dull moment, even during some of the segways where the author switches between the stories, that she has cleverly woven within the story, Sandra Brown makes use of a suspenseful common thread and ties the ending with a satisfying bow.
I highly recommend this book, but it does have some steamy scenes, maybe three or four, that are sexual, but not outlandish, as well as some frat boy banter. I would suggest one should be thoughtful of this issue if listening in a car or any environment with children, but thats a no brainer for most but sometime we do forget. Read it and enjoy!
I enjoyed all of them!
No, but I will look for him in the future. He did an amazing job and brought the characters through with the flow and tempo of his voice.
The letter from Noah's teacher that P.M.E includes in his book.
It's adult sexy, suspenseful and while it is a colorful read it still leaves plenty of room for one to paint their own pictures yet doesn't bog the reader down with to many details. I enjoy texture and color in a book, but only if it doesn't distract from the story. This story hit the mark.
This book gives the reader/listener a peek into the less known reality of the white slaves that are also a part of our nations history. I enjoyed The Kitchen House very much and while it may have had a bit of a cliche ending, the journey was interesting, intriguing and very entertaining. I'm new to audible books so the accent of narrator was odd at first, but within the first chapter my mind adapted to it and the book was an easy listen.
