I keep seeing Ackman's name in the news and it's interesting to see how many of his predictions, even some that have come to light and resolved since the book was written, have shown to be true.
Well it's written like a who-dunnit. It's non-fiction, but far from dry.
She's a really good narrator. Very clear and keeps the pace moving. She's reading a story that has mainly mail protagonists and very few females but she does a great job and keeps it honest.
No. You've got to lean into it a bit. A lot of names and information to keep straight.
Lively descriptions of the rivalry. Larger than life characters. Great for soccer lovers.
Yes - it was a mystery. She's fine.
Yes! But too long.
Name pronunciations were fine. Not sure what the other reviewer listening to. I am a native Spanish speaker. Maybe there are different pronunciations based on which country? Anyway. Sounded good to me. And Celtic??? Pronounced with a hard or soft 'c'.
Out of tragedy springs the beginnings of hope. Two families are impacted by a violent event that forever alters them all; but through learning to trust and by staying open, they find that their connections, sometimes very unexpected bring them together and give them renewed hope. The story is told at a slow gentle pace, focusing on the internal landscapes of the main characters. But is peppered with scenes from a comic book that holds a prominent place in the story.
I liked the "real" scenes. The female narrator is excellent. The Captain Cosmos scenes are not as good, maybe because the male narrator has an odd way of running sentences together without much break so I found myself not able to follow sometimes.
The descriptions of the Nevada desert made me want to go there!
funny sad unexpected
this is a hard question because they are funny and well performed and quirky. so i liked that about them. but the underlying thread is a pretty dark and all of the characters have some pretty big "issues"
i liked the end
both. but mostly laugh. it's somewhat nihilistic in places and rather absurd. but the romantic in me cried for a lack of soul.
great characters and good comic reading by this narrator. she nailed these suburban types
This is a romance novel at its core. But more interesting than most. It's set in an exotic location and has an interesting conflict at the center. I was surprised that I didn't find it corny. Just sweet. Innocent in a way.
I listened to it with my wife who also found herself surprised by how much she enjoyed it. Really liked the narrator.
It mixes the romance with a little adventure and suspense that gives a nice balance and keeps you engaged. But basically it is a gentle story about gentle people.
No. But I definitely will. I think she is one of the reasons we liked it so much. She kept it from being too corny. She has a lovely feminine voice but gave a wonderful depth to the male character.
Well the book isn't overly deep or complex. So when I found myself caring about the characters and wanting them to come together I think I was surprised. They wanted to be good people.
