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.
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.
Yes. The book seems good, but in written form. It's very detailed, almost academic, it needs to be read.
The audio performance was fine. I just found that the content is not a great fit for an audiobook.
Absolutely. It kept me bitting my nails start to finish. I like the characters and the focus on human emotions and non-verbal communication.
Jack I suppose. He's enigmatic and with his silences and grunts leaves a lot to be interpreted.
When Jack and Nadia go back to Evelyn's house and they are all pointing guns at each other.
I want to get the rest of the series!!!
Hilarious, entertaining, and imagination stimulating.
Why, emperor Molusk of course. He has an utmost rational approach to everything, yet he is also arrogant and polite at the same time. It's a fabulously complex character.
Brilliant. The british accent makes it even better.
Made me laugh so many times! I re-listened to it with my son and by myself. So funny and creative!
