This is a thought provoking story of passages, adapting to changes, in one's life, as viewed from a woman's perspective. Rose is letting go of all the things most dear to her; husband, son, daughter, mother, cat and garden and making a new start in her life.
I enjoyed this book and learned a great deal. However it was quite dense and I had to listen to it more than once to fully absorb what was discussed.
This is my first SK fantasy novel but it won't be my last. I fell into this story quickly and was grateful that I had a long drive and would not be interrupted. Too bad I finished it before the trip was over because I wanted more. The narrator was excellent. I just loved his Flagg!
If you like books that wisk you away to another place and time you will like this book. The narrator does an incredible job of offering many convincing voices.
Haunting, difficult to put down. Reader does a great job of instantly transporting the listener to the diverse locales.
This ghost story starts off a bit slow but steadily draws you in. You're wondering, how do these pieces come together? Meanwhile you are becoming more and more involved until finally at the end you cannot go to sleep until you reach the final revelation.
I read this book to find out how the Europeans view the actions of our government, particularly the opponents of the Bush Doctrine. I extremely disappointed by this book. Instead of aj organized focused presentation of facts, I found inflammatory rhetoric without sufficient presented support. Sadly, I learned nothing by reading this book.
The characters are a bit of a caricature of the college-aged friends of my kids tramping through our house now. I believe the committment to drinking, sex and superficiality is by no means universal, but I do believe this does exist in certain universities out there. While doing college searches for the last 2 years for both our sons we could guess which colleges were more like Mr Wolfe's DuPont by looking at the arrest and crime statistics that the colleges must now post.
Both my 16 year old son and I listened to this book. We both felt that we couldn't wait until we had another opportunity to get back to it. The language of the book was rich with action and description. We will be waiting for the sequel.
