No, probably not
Neither one was particularly riveting
The story starts off with a brisk pace and stimulates your interest...unfortunately it goes down hill quickly....I have attempted 3 different times to listen to this story and I just cant stay with it....don't waste your money....
The story, while basically interesting, was not fully formed and did not flow. The writing was jumpy and the story line just disappointed. It really felt as though it were badly abridged. I really like the Private series, I feel connected to the characters. However, this one just left a lot to be desired.
Expand on the plot and develop the characters more fully.
The narration was excellent...very smooth and easy to follow.
This is the 3rd in the series and it does not disappoint.... Very near the top in my overall favorite list!
I love how the characters stories were interwoven, sometimes a bit fancifully, but then again, it is fiction. This third in the series contained a bit more war and bloodshed than the first two so it was not quite as entertaining as I found the others. Having said that, I still did not want it to end any more than I did the first 2!! Very entertaining and so easy to be attached to the characters.
I love the Aussie and New Zealand accents... they both lend an air of authenticity.
Oh gosh yes, just not possible
It was boring.. It really tried to be something...there was a promising beginning, but as we progressed through the chapters it became less and less entertaining. Unfortunately it never really went anywhere.
Ms Solomon has a lovely writing style and interesting prose, unfortunately she just didn't have a very interesting story to tell.
Mr. Adams does lovely and very believable accents and that is basically the only positive thing this audio book has to keep one interested.
Don't waste your money/credits...its just not going anywhere....
Have already recommended this book to several people and I just finished it today!
When George gets beaten up and suffers so...I was so hurt for him...
When George and Sadie dance for the first time!
Oh my goodness! Where to start? This is totally not a typical King novel, and I am a fan from way back. There are no scary clowns, no possessed cars and no crows on power lines....having said that, there are plenty of symmetries, balances and intrigues. The story is about time travel....I know, you say
My daughter recommended this book (she had gotten the book from the library) "Can't put it down" was her statement. Well, let me tell you she was correct. From the first chapter of the book ( I have it on audio) I could not take my headphones off! I was frustrated whenever I would have to put my ipod on charge for a bit and couldn't wait to get back to it. The characters are likeable ... if a bit folksey and not always totally believeable.... the story line is a bit predictable in places but not completely. The author gives a few surprises here and there. All in all a great listen....the narrators are wonderful and the characters voices are easy to identify and the accents are very accurate and quite believeable. I enjoyed it so much and I can't wait for something more from this author!!
I swear to you, I love Goldie... I love that big, great looking, great cooking hubby of hers, I love Arch...but I really didn't love this book! The writing was terrible...I'm not even sure Diane Mott Davidson wrote this book! The story line was choppy, Arch was moody and sullen and Goldie was so ditzy and predictable that I just couldn't tolerate her. Please, I beg you, save your credits and try another one. I only got to chapter 4 or 5 I can't even remember.... or maybe the memory was so painful that I have repressed it.... Shame, shame Diane, next time slow down and write an engrossing book like we know you can!!
I totally loved the story! The writing was entertaining tho it stretches a bit in the believability department from time to time. The character is quite likable even when he is behaving badly and he blends well with the other characters in the book. What I really disliked about the story was the ending... there wasn't one! You are listening quite contently when suddenly the story just ends! Very unsatisfactory. The book is well read and the voice is pleasing to the ear.
