I probably read Huckleberry Fin in High School, but that was 40 years ago. I was curious how well Elijah Wood would narrate the book and though it was one of the BEST books I have purchased so far. Elijah was very, very good at capturing the dialects and I did appreciate the original text, N word and all. I highly recommend this book. It is a classic that anyone would enjoy listening to.
Hysterical imaginative story
The daughter B, she was so innocent and optimistic. Also the neighbor who lived below B's family
The parking lot altercation becasue people really do such bizaar things just to make everyone conform.
Truth is better than fiction; we couldn't make this stuff up
This story is so totally beleiveable, someone must have known these characters in real life. I have never listened to a book this well narrated and I have listened to ablut 50 books. You can tell the narrator is an actress. I strongly recommend this book. It is not just a summer read.
Cure idea. Liked the point of view of the dog
Yes. Light hearted
Probably wont read the rest of this series. The cat who series is better in my opinion
Yes, I am actually thinking of starting over. The narrator terrific, but the characters are many and I found I had to think a lot about which character the passage was about.
Yes, after a few chapters. Second half was better than the first
Dave, the main charter
No, it was just a good mystery
I'd listen to anything by Will Patton
No. I just didn't enjoy the story. It went no where
made it interesting
Jim is excellent, book was not good
this was a great first book in a great, amusing series. I love the story but wish this was an unabridged edition. That being said, it was still worth reading.
I was not thinking I would love this book, but I did. The hype made me leery. However, it it was very, very good. The cast of narrators was impressive. The many voices made it seem like a stage production, which I loved. It was well written story that made me reflect on what it must have been like to live as these ladies did. I highly recommend this book.
I had seen the first few episodes of the show "True Blood" and was intrigued by this plot line. Also, I am a big fan of series books and Audible.com had a sale on first books in many series. I did enjoy the book. The narrator was awesome. The story was good, but the ending was a bit disappointing. I am not sure I will read the next in the series. It wasn't really my cup of tea, but I was not disappointed that I listened to this book.
This plot was so well devised that I wish i had bought the unabridged version. Many said the long version was slow in the beginning, but I really did not want the abridged version to end; 8 hours was not near enough!
