I have a special love for historical fiction, and as usual Edward Rutherfurd does not disappoint. He makes Paris come alive.
This book had a glaring lack of research. In the book the year is 1934 and the police are reading the Miranda warning, right down to the Supreme Court wording, to someone they had just arrested. The Miranda warning was not implemented until 1966.
Unfortunately this was the only thing that stuck out in a totally unmemorable book. Absolutely predictable at every turn. I sould have used my credit more wisely.
There is no argument the Danna Tartt is a wonderful writer. She uses words as an artist uses paint. Her descriptive narratives are so well written you can visualize exactly what she's describing. Unfortunately it dragged. She wrote and wrote and wrote scenes of Theo's and Boris's drinking and drugging until I found my mind wondering, which is something the rarely happens to me.
I am the all time lover of long books. Usually I hate to see them end. However, I had to for force myself to finish this one. There are good reasons for editors and this book is in need of a good one.
Loved this free download. Molly Harper never fails to entertain with humor. Hope we find out who GiGi's mysterious stranger is!
You know from the first few words that this book is something special. The story is basically a simple one of a little girl who lives in Nazi Germany during some of the most horrific periods in history.
Markus Zusak writing is nothing short of magic. It's one of the few books, that when you've finished reading it, you know without a doubt you've been reading literature.
Too little Pendergast and too much Corrie. The character Corrie lacks depth and in just about all instances common sense. The decisions she makes are much in line with that of a 5 year old. Her behavior was unforgivably rude and nasty toward Pendergast, considering he is the one who made it possible for her to escape her abusive mother. I found nothing in her character redeeming. Hopefully she'll just disappear in future Pendergast novels.
The narrator was fabulous.
I love J.R. Ward's books, but this one is slow and lacks focus. If you're following the Fallen Angel series you'll be disappointed in this last book.
The title and description almost put me off getting this book. It was the positive reviews that enticed me into using my treasured credits.
The novel fascinated from chapter one. Mr. Galbraith aka J.K. Rollings can WRITE. Every word drew you deeper into the story and engaged you into the lives of the characters. This is a must read.
What happened to the voices. Daria sounds like a old hag. Book 4 was narrated by John Lee, who is much much better. Doltrice did a good job in the first 3 books, but this time he's voices almost ruined the book.
Loved the Discovery of Witches, but book II of this series is nothing but boring. Other's have suggested that the book is very historical, which it may be, but I can get history from better sources. The heroine makes silly mistakes (continuing to forgive Kit is just one example) that makes the book even more difficult to enjoy.
The narrator is wonderful! Her delightful voice was the one bright spot in the entire 24 hour audiobook.
This is another very enjoyable Dan Brown thriller. The entire book focuses on overpopulation and it's consequences. Personally, I agree with Mr. Brown. Overpopulation is an issue that we rarely hear about in the news, yet has more potential for self destruction than almost any other global issue.
The story line centers around Robert Landon's efforts to find a genetically engineered virus, whose impact is not yet known. I particularly enjoyed the vivid descriptions of both Venice and of Istanbul's Hagia Sophia and spent a good amount of time watching YouTube videos of the famous buildings and art described in the book.
Inferno is well worth the credit and the time to listen to it. Enjoy!
