A facsinating listen--the narrators did a great job and intertwined the 2 19th wives very well. I learned a great deal about polygamy, the Firsts and B. Young, as well as the treatment of women in that time period. The psychological impact of children of polygamy was very enlightening. It is a long listen, but worth it. Very interesting material for discussion for book clubs.
I found this book to be very informative--things I never knew about Lincoln and the demons he dealt with all of his life. The author implements current medical knowledge to explain the torture Lincoln's mind endured during a time when not much was known about depression. Well worth the listen!
This book was too over the top for me--zombies and gore. I could not even finish it because it disgusted me--not at all what I expected.
I was sad to see the end of this series and I am hoping there were will be more Jamie & Clare adventures. I was totally addicted to the Outlander series and the last book is not to be missed. I only wish it was available in unabridged!
I hated to see this book end--the character development was great and I can see it becoming a movie!
I loved this book! The author's narration was "spot on" for the mountain accents and the characters were so interesting and intertwined, I was sad to have this book end. I highly recommend it!
Jonathon Kellerman is one of my favorite authors and I was interested in this book because of the location--the marsh, protected land, etc. It was just okay--I still love, Milo, Alex, Robin and Blanche, but this story needed more....something....it was lacking somehow and very predictable. Maybe I have read too many of his books (all of them, in fact), so I can predict the endings. It was an okay read...just not great. I look forward to the next one in the anticipation that it will deliver the usual Kellerman twists and turns.
I really loved this book--it touched on so many ethical issues and the characters were very real people--you can feel their emotions as they struggle with right and wrong and what is "expected" of them. It is very worthy of your time.
I found this book to be very informative and it made me very aware of the different personality types and why they act the way they do. I thought it was really worth the listen.
Stephanie and her co-horts do not disappoint--you will be laughing out loud at their antics--a wonderful "feel good" book!
While I disagree with the other reviewers about Kate Reading--I think she does a great job and cannot imagine listening to a Scarpetta novel without her voice, I do have to say the plot was very predictable. It was okay, but her other books were so much better. I can understand why someone who had not listened to her other books would not care for this one--you really do have to begin with the older ones to understand the characters.
