I like learning about different cultures than the one I am living.
Yes. Definitely. The reader used the wrong emphasis on many of the words in the sentences. There was a difficulty in following what she was saying sometimes.
The reader could have used a lesson in reading with feeling and emphasis on the correct words in the sentence. The reader was easy to understand, but her voice inflections were not good, and she used practically the same monotone of voice throughout the book. It was kind of distracting sometimes.
Yes. To stop swearing.
Cursing is not attractive at all.
There is too much cursing for my taste.
No. It isn't my place to change someone's elses writing.
Gone With the Wind
This book was very long and very hard to listen to. The story was embellished with many many superfluous words, but I guess it was a style of writing in which I am not familiar. The monotone of the readers is hard to listen to because they let my mind wander, so I missed some parts completely. It was really really long.
Good, predictable, trite.
I liked the older lady.
When the baby was born.
The mother of April. She was a conceited lady, but she was normal.
I love Danielle Steel's books. They are sometimes predictable, but they are well written, usually have a good story, and are enjoyable to read and/or listen to. An escape from reality of life. This story was more trite than usual. Nothing seemed to phase those characters, everyone acted abnormally happy, and everything worked out for all of them. There was less angst than in some of her books.
Yes. I have always loved the movie, but had never read the original book. It was very interesting.
Why would one change the story? It is the author's work. It should not be changed.
I love most of Anne Hathaway's performances. She is a fabulous actress. I like the different voices she had for all of the characters. It made for a very interesting listen.
Perhaps to read the other books by L. Frank Baum.
I am still in awe that the movie was made from this book. So many things were different. It will make the movie more fun to watch.
