This is one my husband would call a "chick novel." It's not trash, but pretty low level writing.
Beautifully written, as always...
I've read many of her books, loved most of them.
I don't know narrators names, but Kingsolver's sing song, immature voice is NOT right for this book.
lots of them. Sorry, I can't remember which ones, but the book offered so many scenes that were irrelevant to the plot - like the partner of the hero's arrest? What was that all about?
This reader sounded like an 8 year old giving his first reading. "The" became "thee" most of the time. The schwa article, "a", was read with a long A, again sounding like someone who read differently than he spoke. BAD! I have to ask, did this reader really get paid for this performance?
This is a beautifully written book. The author is the reader. She sounds immature, but what comes out of her mouth is amazing. Alzheimer's disease is probably everyone's worst nightmare and I probably would never have listened to this book were it not on my book club's list. It's really great, but really painful. I don't regret having listened to it.
I was pleasantly surprised to listen to such a good, timely book by Picoult. It reminds me of her early books. Really good and right on target with today's social issues.
Another good DeMille story, but the reader ruined it for me. His sarcastic tone throughout the book was so annoying. It was an attempted John Wayne drawl with a Brooklyn snarl. Yuck.
beautifully written, beautifully read. I couldn't stop listening, but the ending was so bizarre, so sad, so unfulfilling! I'm a dog trainer, so I found all the dog stuff really compelling, but a bit off the mark. The character development was great. The story had so much potential, but why the author decided to end it this was still baffles me. It's not just that it was sad, but so much was unresolved. The bad guy (Claude) wasn't exposed. Edgar's mother never knew he was the cause of all her grief. The blinded sherrif had her in a wrestling lock?? now how bizarre is that?
This is a fascinating story altho not real well written. But the reader is pretty bad. She has a juvenile voice, overenunciates and acts as though she's in a speech contest rather than reading a real life thriller.
