My 11 year old boy was hesitant to purchase this one...but he LOVED it...we even listened to Steven Hawking's Postlude together, he was so enthralled with the story and author's special abilities. Great job!
This is especially true in the first of the collection: A Place called Freedom"; however all three of these could use some editing clean up to eliminate the pause... is this a new chapter or are they going to continue reading... just felt really awkward in these good stories.
I was expecting something in the historic fiction genre and feel like this was more King or Koontz...
This book might have been a better read than it was an audio book, but I doubt it! I kept listening and finished the book, but it was like nails on a chalkboard. I often felt like the book's reader was reading the book out of sequence on purpose.
I was swept into the story as Grissom developed her characters flaws and foibles. Love, Passion, Longing to belong and historic fiction...a great combination! The trials of slavery- explored from both sides owner and slave, the mean spirited racism, and the time period all swept me into their world. I find myself searching Audible for other novels by this author because I just didn't want this story to end...
I found myself always wondering if I were somehow listening to this story in a reverse order somehow. I keep trying to finish it, but to no avail...
Daniel X is the story of an alien hunter who is a teen. This is an exciting story. Nonstop action and I am excited to begin the next one in this series.
This book was raved about by family and friends, so I finally gave in and purchased it. It was an enjoyable story for the most part...but the sub story of the investigator who is sodomized by her "guardian" was out of the blue and shocking! An overall enjoyable listen.
...what a fun way to travel through time...! My first Andre Norton novel, but it won't be the last!
An intriguing look at Scottish and English relations. Wow! This was well done! The passion and love between Alec and Jamie was fun to listen to. Like a fly on the wall of their home.... :-)
