This was my first audible book and I really enjoyed it. Debra Monk did a fantastic job narrating, her voice fit the story perfectly. The story was very well written and Eowyn Ivey's description of Alaska is amazing. I live in Soldotna, Alaska and every description of the seasons and the landscape really made me appreciate where I live. I thought it was a fantastic book and I would recommend it to anyone.
Esther- she was so light hearted and really warmed the story up.
Esther- Monk did a great job of bringing her personality to life.
I looked forward to listening every morning and I truly did enjoy it.
John Lee did a magnificent job with the accents in this novel. The story line was wonderful, it was easy to connect with all the characters and differentiate between them with Lee's voices.
One of the final scenes when Ethel Williams makes Fitz move aside so that she and her son may pass.
I fell in love with the book and several times I laughed out loud or started to sniffle at the characters' misfortune.
I would recommend this book, to anyone and everyone, to listen to. Lee was phenomenal and Follett is a fantastic storyteller. I recommend getting the sequel before you even start listening to this one, because you will want to start it immediately after finishing "Fall of Giants".
I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone. I loved the story line and the narrator was fantastic. It was very whimsical and fun. I connected with the characters and felt like I was a part of the circus myself.
I would tell you but I don't want to give the plot away, but walking through many of the tents with the characters was memorable.
Again, don't want to give away too much but when Marco was showing his opponent the garden, it was beautiful.
The two opponents.
I thought the narrator did a fantastic job and was able to impersonate every character the way I thought they would sound. Very well written and read.
I would recommend this to some friends. I thought the plot was good and had a lot of potential, but that the ending was terrible. Flynn works up to a great ending and then cuts it short. She takes a common occurrence and tries to stretch it and twist it into a plot which she seems to be unable to follow through with.
Maybe, it would depend on the story line, she has the potential for a knockout story.
I really enjoyed Whelan and Heyborne's performance. They both added so much personalty to the characters. They were wonderful.
It did inspire a conversation with my partner on how well we know one another, which was fun.
I expected this book to be much better from the ratings and the ranking it had on the best seller list. I was disappointed with the story's ending, but it did keep me listening.
I thought it went a little too long. I thought there was a lot of gratuitous information and scenes. I did, however, find it very entertaining.
I have not listened to any of his work.
I loved Morton's performance. I thought he did an excellent job. He really made the story for me.
I could see this being a tv series with Jim Carey as Pocket.
I think it is a fun listen, nothing too serious.
