Whereas all the other books in the series have plenty of substance and credibility, this book really undoes all the great work of the previous authors. There is no red thread that connects the back story and worse still the central characters start to go through a major personality change!
Same as usual - stunning repertoire of dialects and intonation keeps it all believable.
I'm sure others will agree - we'd rather wait longer for the next instalment than listen to the weak ill conceived story we were duped with on this occasion.
I have never regretted wasting my time listening to an audiobook more than this. Think of this as the worse of Mills & Boon coupled with the crass vulgarity of the British "Carry On" films. Save yourself the torture - its total "tripe"!
If you subscribe to an ancestral way of eating then this is definitely not for you. Save your credit.
Difficult to follow with little to retain the interest of tween listeners - disappointing to say the least.
David Baldacci recovers the storyline from a disappointing book 5. Fantastic action, lots of unexpected twists and a truly mesmeric crescendo in a dramatic finale. As always David Pittu puts in another stunning performance. Bravo.
Trying to picture how to tie different styles of knots is a futile exercise - a companion PDF would have made all the difference in the world.
Guaranteed to take you on an epic journey - just as good as RJ Palacio's "Wonder".
Grimm by name - grim by nature. Definitely give it a miss if you have children with an innocent disposition.
A book that is guaranteed to take your child on an amazing journey - engrossing, entertaining, enlightening - there aren't enough superlatives you can apply to this book to do it justice.
My daughter normally takes all books in her stride - however the subject matter of this book really unsettled her and we decided not to continue with the book. Be very sure that your youngster can handle the issue of mortality and terminal illness before you buy.
Worth it's weight in gold - don't be put off by the brevity - in this case less is definitely more.
