I am typically hesitant about using my credits for an unknown author and even more so when I am purchasing books with my own money. 32 Candles was well worth it all!!! I loved this book and can't wait for more from this author. The characters are well developed and the remarks pithy. I was so lost in this book that I forced myself to stay up way past my bedtime to hear what would happen next because I just didn't want to stop listening...much the same way I felt when the book ended.
David Baldacci created scenarios and a storyline that is simply amazing! I was captured throughout this entire book, waiting for what would happen next. Love this series.
This book really touched my soul with the flawless depiction of slavery in the south. I can't think of anything Sue Monk Kidd's written that I didn't love and The Invention of Wings is not an exception. I was swept into the Charlestonian era as soon as the first words were uttered and I was literally captivated throughout this poignant story of hope and hopelessness. I would highly recommend sinking into the depths of this epic novel.
I think I've read every Robyn Carr book and, while realizing that this book would be different, I wasn't ready for such a departure from her tried and true genre. In short, I loved it. I liked the character development and the twists and turns of the storyline. I was initially a little conflicted with Jackie's "hunches" about Tom, but just decided to go with it and now I'm glad I did. Robyn, feel free to entertain/scare us with more of these stories.
This story really is a tight narrative that twists and turns it's way into your psyche. I'm new to Gillian Flynn, and usually don't commit to an author so quickly, but I think she had me at crazy. I'll definitely return for more!
This story ruined a family weekend! I was so captured by this story that I neglected my family for an entire weekend while I listened. This story was a nice mixture of intrigue and romance.
Wow! Fast paced and dynamic storyline. I enjoyed the twists and turns of this highly dysfunctional family. Not crazy about the gratuitous sex scenes, but the story kept my attention. Excited to read the next installment.
I am listening to the end of this book while I write this review because I was so excited that I couldn't wait. I absolutely love Sophie Kinsella and this book does not disappoint. Poppy and Sam are absolutely dreamy and I can't wait to hear more about them. Sophie has a flair for funny, lovable, endearing characters and these are no exception. Read it, listen to it, just get it.
I really missed the familiar voice of David Colacci whom I've come to know and love as the personification of your books. If you're attempting to go in a different direction with your reader, please turn around NOW. This was painful.
This is absolutely Stephen King at his best. I've never really liked the horror genre that King masters, but I did read his classics like Pet Cemetery, It and Bag of Bones. When I saw the reviews of this book, I was initially hesitant because I thought I knew what to expect. Boy, was I wrong! I purchased this book because I needed something to keep me entertained through the holidays, but this book went well beyond that. I was enthralled and engaged in the story to the point that I got very little else accomplished. I have now recommended this book to others and we're convinced that King has legalized literary cocaine. He's that addictive.
I've read many of Michael Connelly's books and enjoyed most of them. The Poet's twists and turns took me by surprise. As soon as I thought I'd figured the plot out, we were back on the rollercoaster ride. I enjoyed everything about this book! Kudos, Michael.
