For Jodi Picoult's first book, this was great. The story was easy to follow but definitely not one of her best.
It seemed like it was the same stories, told over and over by different people. The characters were enjoyable, but I didn't get sucked in like I usually do in her novels.
Overall, worth listening to, but not fantastic.
I really liked the fact that it w as read by the author. Please don't listen to the reviews that say he was hard to understand - that is not true at all! His voice was perfect and so understandable. It made the book more enjoyable.
It really captivates you and the way it is written and read makes you feel like you are there. It is heart wrenching and beautiful.
Definitely worth the listen - two thumbs up!
If you like Jodi Picoult's stories, this is one that you will enjoy without exception. It will take you to a place you have not been, but after listening to this book you will feel like you have. Very emotional and mind opening. A great read.
If you liked the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, you will love Lars Kepler. GREAT stories that keep you wanting more. Unbelievable plot twists that will take you by surprise and you will fall in love with Joona Linna! A defintite MUST READ!!
Listening to Mark read the book is one of the best parts of the book! His accent is perfect and listening to him pronounce all of the Swedish places and names is one of the best parts of the book! I hope he narrates the next one -- I can't wait for it to come out!
Very similar to the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series -- I loved the reader's accent and all of the Swedish places -- really great!
The plot was really well thought out and kept me guessing the entire time -- great story!
The detective is my favorite - Joona Linna is my hero and someone I could listen to forever! I listened to all of Lars Kepler's books and can't wait for the next one!
It is as if the readers are talking to you -- telling you their story. It is easy to get lost in their stories and be glad that it is not my story!!
Typical Wally Lamb book. I had a bit of a hard time getting started with the book, but once I did, I couldn't wait to listen to more!
Listening to the book was easy and learning all about animals and religion was a big bonus.
Yes, it was a good story and I enjoyed listening to it very much
The female voice was a little unnerving for the men -- made them sound very feminine
