I love the Alex Cross series, but this one did not meet standards. I felt that it was rushed from beginning to end.
It was a quick read with the usual good narration.
I just could not get into this book. Maybe if I try it at another time it will strike me differently but I just didn't care about the character.
I would recommend this book for the writing and for the great narration.
Reynolds reads all if the characters well and he gets the humor as if he were the characters.
This was an extraordinary prequel because it emmersed the reader into the story immediately and explained so much about the main characters that I went back to read the first series again. You do have to read these series in sequence. And I recommend buying the second in the Chronicles series as soon as you can because they are so good.
This is not a children's book. It is a funny and heartfelt adult bedtime book about how a parent feels while attempting to put his child to sleep. It is so accurate and Jackson's narration so spot on that you find yourself laughing in recognition. I love this book and have shared it with other parents and grandparents.
Yes, if only for the music.
This was a moving book, sometimes depressing but always hopeful. Her performance of her music at the beginning of every chapter provides a unique and moving framework for her life story. The frankness with which the story is told and the way she handles her abuse, her betrayals and her sexuality are revealing of the times and of her growth as a person. But always it is the music that drives her and heals her. Loved the book!
I liked learning about the many facets of Penny Marshall's talent. Her anecdotes about people in show business were fun to listen to.
Her unique voice adds a lot to this autobiography because it is as if she is sitting in your living room sipping wine and telling her tales.
I would listen again because of his connection with his students.
I don't think there was one memorable moment but many that built on each other to point out the importance of education and how each individual, both students and teachers have strength and dignity to share with each other.
It made me do both. Tony Danza shared the realities of the classroom and a teacher's struggle to reach each student very well.
I was glad that we heard Tony Danza's own voice telling this story.
Ms Hvam's narration is perfect. Her many voices are a great addition to the story and to each character.
This is the fifth book in the series and Faith Hunter has hit her stride. Characters expand, plot lines are explained and she leaves room for more books as her characters grow and information is revealed. It made me laugh and cry. Jane's compassion and humanity are really out in the open as she deals with friends from the children's home. I would bet that these new characters will appear again in future books.
I like the way this book pulls separate strands from the others together. The interaction between Jo and her mother are strong and revealing.
She has gotten better. I like her voices.
I listened to Relic again after I bought the sequal to refresh my memory.
This book doesn't really move the reader, it scares the reader. There is lots of suspense and it is easy to visualize scenes.
Relic would make a good movie.
Yes. Good narration and an excellent story.
They brought the characters to life. I liked having a woman read the female part because it made each point of view distinctive.
