I got this book based on your reviews and I wasn't disappointed- really enjoyed this story and the characters...I wish there had been more, but I understand why it ended like it did...
My favorite parts of American Psycho were the fashion & food commentary, beauty tips, and updates on the Patty Winter Show. The murders were pretty hard to listen to- way over the top. Still- I really enjoyed this book and the characters- the reader was great too!
I started this book a couple of months ago, stopped, started, stopped, started- it was pretty sad in the beginning, and I couldn't stay with it.
BUT when I came back to it a third time nicer things started happening. I can't remember exactly what Mr. Pucci says, but something about finding happiness and letting yourself be happy. That's pretty nice. I ended up really enjoying this book and the characters (except for a few characters who remained real jerks). ha :)
Oh- and there was something that comes back around towards the end of the book which is fun- I thought- "gah- should have seen that coming", but it happened so long ago it didn't register until she mentioned it, but it was a great element to the story.
Sometimes you just want to hear a fun story and this might be it. No, it's not literature- it's not complicated or even well written...ok, that sounds snotty, but I don't mean it to be.
I bought this from the Audible daily sale and I've listened to it in between this and that- when you want to cook or do something else, or just get away from the crazy deep story that you're listening to- it's a fun one! I might even buy another as this Atticus sounds so cute :)
I liked this story--- creepy and fun and mysterious. It was so long though that I'd find myself zoning out often. I also can't tell you how many times I'd think "oh good! ____ is going to happen!" and then nothing would happen and I'd be disappointed- ha.
Still- good story- fun listen- oh and getting the pdfs was really fun too- don't forget to look at those :)
You'll like this story if you like character studies and love and mystery...good story, happy ending (depending on what you were hoping for) and don't pass up the epilogue :)
Some Talisman, some Gunslinger and lots of other characters combine to create a really creepy, interesting tale about a town, a child killer, a hero, and "other worlds than these". I started this before I read the Talisman, so I stopped it and listened to The Talisman first, then started Black House over. I loved it...
Also, I swear that I could listen to Frank Muller read anything -so fun!
This is not going to be a helpful review because honestly, I'm still not sure how I feel about this story. Some parts were boring, some parts were interesting. I liked some of the characters, hated others. The ending was not great, but the reader was good and I loved the book cover...
Probably would not recommend unless you are interested in the history of the South.
I'm kind of conflicted here, because I enjoy Stephen King's stories and I LOVED the Shining. This story had a lot to live up to, and at least in my mind, really didn't. I mean, I liked it. I listened to all of it (and I'm the first person to abandon a book that I don't like much). I just didn't think it was that scary. Still, it was fun to remember Danny (who now looks like Jax from Sons of Anarchy we're told- and that can't be bad- hahaha) and Tony and the Overlook Hotel and I enjoyed some of the new characters as well.
Credit worthy? Yes. Just not a story that will haunt me or that I'd want to listen to again.
So much about the passing of time makes me sad- and here we see a whole life and an entire family --their happiness and tragedies...yikes I loved this story and am so sorry that it's over- I wonder what will happen to Frank and Sophia and Dean... Listen listen listen.
that was a BIG ride- I put off listening to this one, because, due to the title I imagined a kidnapped girl- nooo, it wasn't. The strangest and most interesting tale I've heard in awhile- enjoy! Very fun listen with lots of twists and you just won't believe this one!
