I thoroughly enjoyed listening to “Cold Dish” by Craig Johnson. I liked the protagonist Walt Longmire immensely. He had a gruff kind of character, but he was such a decent person. I also enjoyed the Native Americans and the tensions between them and the rest of the community.
In addition to the lead character, I also liked the personality of Longmire’s best friend Henry Standing Bear, and his Deputy Victoria Moretti. The story line is so good and I felt it was fiction at its best!
I am looking forward to reading/listening to the next book in the series, Death Without Company. I hope George Guidall narrates them all! He was the perfect narrator for this book.
A&E will be airing a new drama series “Longmire” based on Craig Johnson’s Walt Longmire novels on June 3rd, 2012, Sundays at 10:00 p.m. I hope I'll get to watch them and that they'll be as good as the book.
I really enjoyed this book by John Green. It was the first time I have read a novel by him, and even though it was labeled as a young adult book, I still enjoyed it as an Adult!
I found that some parts of the story brought me to tears because of the emotions it made me feel. The novel was both beautiful and heartwarming to me. There were also funny parts to enjoy too : )
Don’t let the topic “cancer” and “teens” dissuade you from reading and enjoying this novel.
The narrator, Kate Rudd, was perfect for the narration. I look forward to hearing more of her narrations.
I loved this story by Don Winslow; in addition to enjoying the narration by Ray Porter. He was the perfect narrator for it.
The characters were well developed and I could vividly imagine them as I listened to the audible. I especially liked the main character, Boone Daniels, the private investigator in San Diego, California.
There is a lot of action and mystery in the story which made it all enjoyable. I also liked the historical reflections about San Diego and surfing.
This book was as good as Don Winslow's “Power of the Dog” which I thoroughly enjoyed and highly recommend.
All I can say is that if you are already hooked on Craig Johnson's "Walt Longmire Mystery" series, you will love this one too. That is also in addition to the fabulous narration by George Guidall. ENJOY : )
This book was extremely boring to me. The characters were not developed and I could care less about them when events happened. The author did not share the emotions of the characters so you never got to personally know any of them.
I feel that the book had a lot of potential but the author, George Stewart, did not achieve it. I wish I could have been more involved in the story, but the author did not write it in that way. I read it to the end thinking that it might get better, but unfortunately, it did not. I was so surprised to see the number of reviewers that loved it.
Very long and very boring. The narrators were excellent though.
This is an historical mystery set in the Tudor period written by C. J. Sansom. It is a masterful tale of murder and intrigue and the narrator, Steven Crossley, is fabulous!
I enjoyed experiencing the sights and sounds and smells of 16th century England as the author described them. It was also interesting learning about the dissolution of British monasteries in the first half of the sixteenth century.
I really liked Matthew Shardlake, the hunchbacked lawyer in the court of Henry VIII, who has integrity and honesty. I felt sorry for him as adults taunted him about his physical appearance. He seemed to have a kind heart and was willing to help the less fortunate.
I am looking forward to listening to the 2nd book in the series, “The Dark Fire”.
What a fun mystery to read, and I loved the Egyptology setting which occurs in the 1800s. I also liked Amelia’s personality and I liked her friend, Evelyn, who accompanies her in the plot. I liked the romance that was in the story too. It was a very charming story!
This was the first book I have ever read/listened to by the author Elizabeth Peters. I have already purchased the next book available on Audible, The Curse of the Pharoah, and I am looking forward to listening to it soon. Hope you enjoy the book as much as me!
First of all, I love the narrator, George Guidall. He could almost make any story sound good, but when you add such good writing by Craig Johnson to his narration, it can’t be anything but good.
I loved the part about the Dark Horse and Longmire which you will enjoy in the last third of the book.
You will not be disappointed in this Longmire story. I hope he keeps writing them.
This story is set in Belfast, Ireland in 1981 and is really good. I liked the Detective. Sgt. Sean Duffy. It is fast paced with a lot of action.
I’ve just learned that it is a trilogy and am looking forward to reading the second book: I Hear the Sirens in the Street.
Adrian McKinty is a very good writer. The narrator, Garard Doyle, is perfect for this story!!
This is a young adult book written by Elizabeth Wein, however, even though I’m in my 50’s, I thoroughly enjoyed the story. The historical details are interesting and I enjoyed listening to the author’s interview at the end of the story.
Both Queenie (code name Verity) the wireless operator, and Maddie the pilot in the Air Transport Auxiliary, are great characters in the story. I feel this book can be enjoyed by both males and females of all ages! I promise it will be a pleasant surprise.
The narrators, Morven Christie and Lucy Gaskell, were both excellent.
I listened to it for four hours just hoping that it would get better, but no such luck! I was going to try to return it to Audible, however, I looked up the date of purchase, and I had purchased it over a year ago, just never got around to listening to it.
Oh well, I read really good reviews about it and was expecting much more than what I got out of it. I just could not get into the novel at all. I really didn't care who killed "The Man Who Died Laughing". My mind was wandering so much instead of listening to it that I just finally gave up. It is rare for me to not finish a story, but this time I can't deal with it listening to it anymore.
I don't think I will pursue any other of the books in this series.
