No. I was not a fan of the reader.
I AM a huge Irving fan, but not this book. I just finished reading Son of the Circus and Twisted River, I didn't now there was a new Irving out. I was so excited, and now disappointed.
I also decided I do not like audio books, I just fall asleep.
I'm used to Dean's 40 hour books, so this one was sadly too short. The story was great, fast paced and exciting. Dean seems to always nail these wonderful strong women characters. He used the first cussword I've ever heard in this book (this is my 4th Koontz). (False Memory my favorite by far).The Narrator did a pretty good job overall, but his voice of Thelma sounded like an effiminate gay man. That annoyed me, and didn't let me appreciate Thelma's character as I should have.
I loved the time travel. Great plotline. Why did it take me 41 years of serious reading to find Dean Koontz? So glad I waited so I can enjoy him now.
Not really, it just wasn't as good as I thought, but it wasn't necessarily bad. I Love Tina but I'm not a huge fan, I didn't want 30 rock regularly anyway. I think you have to really love 30 Rock to love the book as the book was mostly about the show and how she made it big and did the show. I love that she's such a modern day women's libber.
I wish she would have told us how her face got slashed. She shouldn't have even brought it up. I never even noticed her scar before. It was a teaser.
The narrator is the worst, he makes listening difficult due to his very blase flat affect voice.
This, combined with a depressing story in the first place, calls for negative emotional reaction. On the flip side, since the book causes such an emotional reaction, does that make it a good book?
I was excited to hear a great historical fiction account and got that, but also bummed out. I like to listen on the way to work and this book does not start my day out on a positive foot. I am likely not going to finish this book, and should actually return it.
I give audible.com five stars for their return policy.
Yes. This book was fascinating, fast paced, well written - Koontz takes the time to write even the seemingly irrelevant sentences poetically. I'm not a big "thriller" fan, but am interested in psychology. I even had a good few laugh out louds, and even more "inside" laughs.
The Keanu Phob.
I loved Lang's performance. He is a fast, steady reader, putting believability and liveliness into the voices of each character
The scene in the elevator with The Keanu Phob and Skeet - this is where I had a jolly laugh. I also liked listening to the doctor's narcissistic thoughts.
Too greusome for my taste, but I s'pose that's what this genre is about sometimes.
