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!
Yes. I have enjoyed the mysterious character of Harley Quinn, and I enjoy Mr. Saitherwaite's fussiness.
The work is a set of short stories. You are able to stop after each story, so no.
No, I listened to it while I was out walking, so I was motivated to walk each day until I finished. It gave me something to look forward to.
Yes, because it is the start of all great vampire tales.
I enjoyed the Van Helsing narration best. This was an ensemble performance, and all of them were great.
Already is a film
It's in the middle. Not the best, but certainly not the worst!
The love story that developed.
I liked the market place scenes!
It's already a film.
I have read three books by this author, and this one is certainly her best effort.
Unexpected plot twists
Any other Christie work
I have enjoyed listening to Hugh Fraser's performances of Christie's works. I have listened to several, and he does such a great job as narrator.
No, I was okay with drawing it over several sittings. It got a little slow in places, and the ending seemed a little improbable.
Yes, because the performance was great, and this was one of Christie's better works. The plot was tighter, and I thought I knew "whodunit" long before the end, but I was wrong...which was fun!
The end when you find out who the murderer is!
Everything! He's a brilliant performer.
Yes, I really enjoyed this work. Christie's plots seemed to get looser as she continued to write, but this one was very tightly written and had a good twist at the end.
After having watched the film, I finally broke down and listened to The Hobbit. I have read the LOTR trilogy, and I have tried to read The Hobbit before, but I just couldn't get into it. Listening to it made the experience enjoyable. I finally found myself being engrossed by the tale.
LOTR, of course
I liked that the thunder battle and the stone giants turned out to be a part of the book!
It's already a film!
At first, I found the narrator's Thorin and Gandalf voices to be very annoying. I almost stopped listening because I disliked the way he did these two characters' voices. However, after giving it enough time, I became accustomed to it.
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.
