It's one of the best ones I have listened to thus far.
I love the subject matter.
I liked her reading of the characters Mercy and Judith.
When Nat comes back with Prudence to save Kitt from punishment is a great moment. He risked his life to do this because he'd already been punished in this town once before.
I read this book many years ago as a teenager, and it has always been one of my favorite works. I think this books is what first interested me in the Salem witchcraft trials. However, now that I am older, I do realize that the plot is a little over-simplified. It's still a great read for its intended audience.
I have read this book before, and I have listened to the abridged version as well, but I love all the details, so I wanted to hear it as a whole. Nathaniel Philbrick does a great job of telling the tale of the Pilgrims!
I'm not sure that there's a book to which I'd compare it.
The book is a history work, so Guidall does not do "voices" for characters because he is not reading fiction.
Mayflower--the story of the Pilgrims survival.
This is a great book!
I enjoyed the story, and I couldn't wait to find out how it would turn out.
I enjoyed the performance.
The different voices and view points.
Callie because she is the central character.
I felt like it took too long to get the girls "found."
I enjoyed this book, and think most Christie fans would as well.
No. It's a collection of short stories featuring Harley Quinn & Mr. Satterthwaite. Each story is interesting, but it's easy to put the work aside after each chapter/story.
I liked a few of the stories more than the others, but nothing truly stood out.
I would not make it into a film.
I like Harley Quinn; he reminds me of Poirot. Mr.Satterthwaite reminds me of Miss Marple,, my favorite Christie character.
I don't think that everyone would be interested in Agatha Christie. Her early works are her strongest, but she goes downhill in her later years.
The storyline wasn't too bad, but by the end, it was rather predictable.
She did a good job with the reading. I would listen to something else by her.
I really wouldn't recommend this book to anyone except those of us who are die-hard Agatha Christie fans.
The plot was too loose. She tried to do too much, and she lost something by trying to incorporate more characters than what she needed.
I'm not sure. I really enjoyed listening to him, though.
If you are a teenager, then this book may be more for you.
The story could have been better as could the reader. She has a slight lisp sound with the letter "s."
The entire first half was S-L-O-W! I'd probably cut from that section.
A younger friend recommended this book to me, but it is apparent that I am not interested in young adult fiction any longer.
I didn't read the print edition, so I cannot answer this question.
It's biography, so...
a little dull
Not possible! It took several times. Reisen's voice will lull you to sleep.
The book is solid, and the information is sound, which is why I got it. However, Reisen would probably serve her audience better by sticking to the writing part.
I think people who also like Sharyn McCrumb's ballad series might find it enjoyable as its setting is the same.
I have not yet listened to Wolff Hall or Bring Up the Bodies, so probably Wolff Hall.
I don't think I had one.
This book could've been great, but the conclusion ruins it.
Not worth the time
I didn't like how the story was told in 3 parts. It started off in Elizabeth's point-of-view, then went to Cambridge's, then back to Elizabeth's. Also, it was too predictable, and at times, too over the top with the story line.
I doubt it.
I was disappointed by the ending.
I think the only redeemable aspect of this book is the historical background it provides about relationships between absentee landowners and their slaves.
