I got it because I heard her in interviews and thought she was hilarious. This book is not funny nor interesting. I didn't finish it.
The narration. The voice is flat, no intention, no emotion, nothing.
I can't get into the story because the narration makes it so boring I have a hard time following the plot. I quit after the second chapter.
Liane Moriarty always delivers. It's not just the secret, which is unexpected, but what comes after. Loved the way she treated the issues that it unraveled.
It's so hard to choose... I think what I like best is the way Moriarty looks at one event through different people.
The Australian accent reminded me that the story was set in Austrialia, with the little details that make the setting of a story special and unique.
The price of curiosity
The concept, the idea was good. A gay super hero, with a super hero mother and a hero wanna be father. But the descriptions weren't detailed enough and the characters were not well developed
I won't go looking for books he narrated but I won't avoid him either.
Maybe. Maybe the visual aspect adds enough detail to make the story more complete.
I haven't read the print version, but I would think so. Emma Powell does a wonderful job conveying not only the personalities of the characters but also the ambience of the whole story. I think I might have not being as interested with the print version.
The daughter. She was lively, funny and intelligent. She added a dimension to the story. It made it more than just a mystery novel and provided a wonderful and enriching contrast to her conservative mother.
No, I haven't yet.
Another Brilliant British Mystery
I would start over.
Probably not. While the idea was good, it didn't deliver. Maybe it was the performance, or maybe it would be funnier if I was more acquainted with the jewish culture. I just didn't get the humor and will not watch the movie.
No, not really.
It is a movie and no, I won't go.
Teenage, different, and adventure.
The moment when they get to the farm and find out what the silver bullet meeting was about.
Nothing I can think of.
I wouldn't make a movie
It is a book for a younger audience. It was OK for me, but I think a tween or teen would have enjoyed it better.
No. I think I would have liked it better if I had read the print edition.
I liked the suspense of the characters' lives with the carnival performers.
The voice of the main character was awful. The voice of the main character was rather monotone and failed to convey emotion or feelings. The male characters' voices sounded loud and angry not with a male pitch.
I'd compare it to Little Lies from Lianne Moriarty because the story is told by several characters. Each character tells their partial view of the event resulting in a description that is much richer than what can be achieved by a single character. It is also very compelling the way the author manages to describe each character's view of themselves. Three completely different personalities and lives are described in a way that gives the reader an understanding of the characters' behaviors, even if they don't agree with them. It is not as funny as Little Lies but it is similar in the impartial description of human nature.
Tough. I suppose it was Anna. The contrast of her light heartedness youth mixed with heavy the deep internal conflict.
Towards the end, yes. It is not a fast paced, high tension kind of book. It is more of a descriptive story that slowly builds up and catches the reader by surprise.
I highly recommend this book.
I'd like it to be funnier, in the lines of "Pretty little lies."
Yes, I got this one because I had listened to "Pretty little lies" and LOVED it. This one is completely different. It's OK, but not what I was looking for.
Yes, that's how I came about Liane Moriarty. I like her performance.
Not sure. I had a hard time with the english accent of the reader and found myself getting distracted from the book. For a while I was considering moving on, but the story was interesting.
Have it read by someone with a more clear accent.
Good question. I have to think about that one.
