I LOVED The Passage. I was very excited when The Twelve was released. However, after listening for hours and hours, I would find my mind wandering, it was like the story just droned on and on. After the "bad vampire" was taken care of, I stopped listening. I couldn't believe there was still and hour left in the book. In other words, I found it boring.
No. It could have been much shorter.
I anxiously awaited book 2 of The Others series, and was not disappointed. I only wish it was a year later so I could read book 3!
Absolutely. Especially if they like some people, felt King had lost his edge over the years. He's back!
Hard to say.
Yes, and as usual, he was spot on.
Abra. Such a wise little girl.
I loved the entire book! But, my favorite would have to be the end of the book. I'm not going to give away any spoilers, but I found my eyes welling up with tears and a smile on my face.
At times I actually found myself talking out loud as if Jacob could hear me. After saying, "Oh no, don't go that way!" My son actually asked me, "What are you talking about? There is only one way to the back yard."
Christopher Lane gave each character their own unique sound. He did such a wonderful job. One reviewer said people who speak french only have accents when they speak English. I don't speak french, but when a friend of mine, who is french speaks french, she has a definite accent. I hate it when narrators try to do the opposite sex and end up sounding like they have an awful head cold, or are being strangled. Christopher Lane did a wonderful job!
Unfortunately I began the book late in the afternoon and had to force myself to stop and go to bed. That being said, as soon as I got up the next day, my headset was the first thing I picked up.
I can't say enough about this book. It is so worth the read!
EVERYTHING!! I told my son he had to read this. He bought it, and couldn't put it down. It's well written, and the narration is perfect!
No but I sure will now.
I tried but at 3AM, I still had 2 1/2 hours to go and had to go to bed. As soon as I woke up, the headphones were back on my head!
There is one heck of a story line, the math and science are spot on, and the narrator does a fantastic job. Even if you didn't like math or science in school, (I didn't.) it is worth reading. I don't want to spoil this book for anyone. All I can say is I haven't been this excited about a book in a long time!
If you're a fan of Kim Harrison, you'll read it anyway. I think I am bored with this series. I've read every one and this one was just like the last ones.
She should stick to reading and not acting. Her sex scenes were like listening to a fog horn going off in an elevator.
If this was the first book in the series it would have been good. Unfortunately it was like the ten (not sure of the exact amount.) before it.
I wish Kim harrison would write something new. I probably won't buy the next one if it is about Rachel Morgan....again.
I like adventure. I like dystopian books. I like sci fy. But I don't care for books that get into war strategy and weapon descriptions. If you like that sort of thing, you will love this.
The narrator did a great job.
This would be a great book for young men. It just wasn't my cup of tea.
I haven't listened to or read a Robin Cook book in years. But the idea of having an iphone app called idoc was intriguing...and scary! Can you imagine using your iphone instead of seeing a doctor? How about your phone managing your meds? What if you're somewhere where the signal is lousy, your battery is dead and the power is out? I liked this book.
This series is a typical story of a rogue teenage boy, law abiding girl and their mission to beat the system. However, Marie Lu did "typical" differently. There was romance, but not too much, just enough action, and a great ending. Well worth reading.
This is one of those stories I could listen to again. Which is surprising to me, as I rarely read a book twice. I was thoroughly engrossed in the lives of Sarah and Handful. The Invention of Wings is about Sarah Grimke, a southern young woman, and a slave girl, Handful. Sarah, who at an early age is against slavery, and is given Handful for her birthday. Reading this book brought out many emotions in me. I found myself smiling, angry and sad. Sue Kidd writes a wonderful novel.
Great story, great characters, easy read. The beginning is a little slow. I'm not sure if it was because I wanted to jump into the Cinder storyline, or if it was because Cress's character was being set up. Once we knew exactly who she was, the book took off. And we were off and running with Cinder!
Yes, she does a good job. Her portrayal of Queen Levana is a little weird, but all in all she does it well.
All I can say is watch for Captain Thorne running down a hall. That is all I can say. Lets just say the crowd of people around me were looking around to see what was funny.
Yes, how long do we have to wait for book 4?
