I love Emily Griffin but this was not her best book. I read it after reading Something Borrowed and Something Blue so I was expecting something comparable. It was terrible compared to those two. I felt cheated after reading it.
Yes! The characters were not believable.
Yes, she did well.
It was dull and boring. I could not get into it.
I have no idea. I did not get that far into the book. I hated it.
This just is not my type of book. If Ken Follett would have written it then I would have loved it! The idea of the book was great but the author was not. In my own opinon. I understand other people might like this type of book. I did not.
I have no idea. I did not read the print version. What kind of a question is this, Audible? Because of you, I don't read books anymore.
This is another stupid question, Audible. Who cares what I would compare this book to. I loved this book because it isn't like any other book. It is not your typical vampire book.
Sookie. Johanna Parker is the best female reader I have ever heard in all the years of Audible books I have listened to. I crave to hear her voice. It is so entertaining! Her accent is perfect and I am from the deep south, so I consider myself an expert. :)
HBO did a terrible job at making this a series. I was so disappointed and I think they were too. The tag line would be, "Just when you think she has had enough, Sookie goes through one more level of hell and comes out alive and stronger and more interesting than ever."
I love this book series. I love this author. I love this reader. I am sad this is the last book. I am addicted to this series.
It is entirely too detailed! Follett is much better at being detailed but not to a point that drives you crazy. Martin is too detailed and it becomes boring and you get lost in reading the details and completely forget what is really going on. The details add nothing to helping the story seem more believeable. It is just like he is getting paid by the word. What should only take 100 words to say he says it in 1,000. He wastes a lot of time.
Daenerys. She is like a princess who has to go through so much and is very smart. I adore her!
No- he was awful! He in no way mad this boring book any better. If anything he made it worse. Whoever read Edge of Eternity by Ken Follett should read these books.
I love the HBO series and wanted to listen to the books to understand more of the background story. However, I gave up listening to the books because they are just unbearable!
I liked the IDEA of the story line but the author did a terrible job at executing it. I really hoped this book was going to get better but it never it. HUGE fail!
All the different things that were going on led you to believe in suspense but then there was no suspense. It was a let down.
She could have changed the characters voices more. They sounded too much alike.
No, the story line was too predictable. It would never make it as a movie.
I was unable to really listen to this book because the reader was so terrible. Sounds like a robot. It was TORTURE to listen to.
It could have sounded less like she was reading from a text book and more like a story.
The reader could have sounded less like a robot.
I loved seeing the same period of time from many different view points. Hearing the story be told not only from different characters, but different characters in different countries during the same time period. Simply genius!
George. His intelligence is believable and makes me wish I actually knew this person is real life. His devotion to Maria as a friend is also something to be in awe of. He makes excellent decisions through the book and you can really see how he grows as a person from the beginning to the end. I would marry this man!
John Lee is amazing! His ability to mimic the difference accents of all the different characters from each varying region really helps you distinguish the characters. He so eloquently gives each character a life of their own and it is like they are really doing the speaking. I would not have enjoyed this book as much if I read it myself. He mad me like it ten times more!
George. His growth as a person is something that very few books truly capture as well as Follett is able to.
I want to read this book over and over again. I have fallen in love with every book Follett has ever written. This one is my new favorite. He is a genius. If you get bored of reading his books then something is seriously wrong. I am not finished with the book but I will cry when it is over. I crave to listen to it.
Yes, Chelsea Handler is so funny and you can't help but laugh at her stories.
Chelsea is my favorite character. Is there even another logical option?
She did ok. However, I have read an audiobook that Chelsea Handler narrated herself and it was amazing. Listening to someone else after listening to Chelsea just wasn't the same. So this has caused her to have an unfair rating. But it is a fact, she did not do as good as Chelsea did.
