I thought this story was well written, put together with intrigue, and told in a poignant manner. I enjoyed the variety of readers and felt they were well matched to their parts. My parents were both born in NY and I have visted many times. It was a strong look at the city and the people of that city. After finishing I found myself wanting to know more about the development of the story. I highly recommend this listening.
This book could drag if read slowly and carefully, but Anthony keeps the pace lively and the text flying at you adding to the point of the story. Lots of Laugh Our Loud places and great information. Enjoyed this book.
I loved the story and really loved the reader. I found the jumping around in time easy to follow and found myself loving and caring about the characters. It seems so believable, I didn't want it to end.
I feel like I should say I endured this book. It was long the readers were good, but oh did they read slowly. The story develops so slowly and the historical back flashes go on right to the last 20 minutes. I couldn't help but compare it to The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime. That book had a similar subject, dealing with autism and there being a mystery to be solved, but after that, no comparison. Curious Incident was much better and had a much more salient conclusion. House Rules left me saying, Meh, Really? Sorry I wasted my time.
This story was at once funny, tragic, silly and heartwarming. The reading was perfect. I would recommend this to anyone who appreciates understanding about our fellow humans.
This is good for some laughs and Shatner insight. Nice to get some of his biography. At 80 he has earned the right to be full of himself, and he is. Wish he read it a bit slower and less mumbly, but it was mostly understandable. There is a way too long section read in Spanglish. Can't even figure what that was all about or why he bothered.
The Night Circus was a great feeling for my inner child. I found myself wanting to go to that circus. Trying to figure out if a circus like that could really exist. The author’s descriptions were a feast for the mind. I also loved the story, it was fresh and intriguing without undue violence. Lastly, is Jim Dale. Always a brilliant reader does not disappoint in this book.
A fresh idea for a story. Left a good feeling. At least one chapter was good but didn't tie in to the story. Other than that, left me wanting a sequel.
This was well read and well written. A difficult subject done well. The author did a nice job tying it all together. Some was a bit predictable, but overall good.
This story was so repetatitve with so much detail throughout leading to nearly nothing and certainly no purpose in the end. Gosh Mr. King, couldn't you have been a bit more creative with this great concept? Then there is the reader. Must have been paid by the hour because he read soooo slowly. I would not recommend this book.
This was an excellent story and very educational. The reader had a beautiful voice and pronouced all the name and places with a pleasing accent. The negative was the reader's emotions. There weren't any. This is an emotional story and I felt much more could have been read into it. I wished I had read it in print.
