No. Henry Leyva did a great job narrating, but I found Rebecca Solers portrayal of Renee grating.
Honestly, I didn't have one.
The warden made me angry, so I guess the story did cause some emotion.
Ted Dekker wrote a great story. And I did find myself going through many emotions. As much as I despised the "mean" characters, I would have liked to have had a backspace key to omit Renee from the book. I found her character to be whiny and irritatingly bratty. If someone had tied her up and put duct tape on her mouth during the whole ordeal I would have been happy.
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?
This was one of those "in between" books. While waiting for a couple of books to be released, I came upon this one. This is a story about a girl living with parents who are hoarders. The beginning was a little slow, but eventually I found myself amazed as to what this girl had to go through. I can't imagine having to go to a gym to bathe because my bathtub at home is full of junk. The idea of having to wake my mother because I can hear rats crawling in my room, makes me shiver. This book really makes you think about what children of hoarders go through, makes you angry with the parents yet you feel for them at the same time.
Josie is a girl who lived part of her childhood in a New Orleans brothel. I love going to New Orleans, so the idea of reading a book in which the main character lives there sounded fun. I'm not going any further about the plot so no spoilers. This book was an easy listen and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The narrator did a great job. I was sorry to see it end!
I read Legend the first book in this series, enjoyed it, and bought Prodigy which is the 2nd. This book was ok. It wasn't as good as the first book, and was rather predictable.
It made me want to buy book 3.
Buy book 3.
Even though this one was a little slow going, it is a necessary read, to continue with book 3.
Gardner has a talent for grabbing you at the first word and DARING you to put the book down. Impossible. I wish she could write more books per year, but alas, her books are like cake. They both have to go through stages to become awesome!
I liked many things. But, I don't like spoilers, so lets just say...worth reading!
Yes, and would have, if sleep hadn't been necessary.
Oh boy, I am sooo ready for book 3! Thank goodness it's supposed to be out in February of 2014. I was a little confused in the beginning. The story was about Scarlett and not Cinder, but hang in there, she's in there too and when they all get together it makes sense. If you liked Cinder, reading this is a must!
