I would not recommend this book.
It went on too long and the narration is irritating.
I have enjoyed reading many Sophie Kinsella books-- but this one put me off.
I didn't care for the main character and I just wanted it to be over already.
I wish knew what happened at the end, but I didn't care anymore and couldn't finish it!
Duly warned by numerous reviews of Jayne Entwistle-- I went in knowing that her voice could be grating. Eventually: I had enough of hearing the high pitched bubble gum delivery. It just was too much for me.
No- I really wanted to shake the main character and tell her to stop being such a fool for a good part of the book.
The story dragged on -- I think the editor was a bit too indulgent on this one. I could not finish the story.
Gripping. Frightening. Touching.
Will Patton brought the story to life, portrayed the characters in a way that made sense and brought many accents and little tweaks to his narration that made this an excellent listen.
Daniel Torrance, of course!
I went back and listened to 'The Shining' after 'Doctor Sleep'-- but Dan is such a compelling and moving character.
I have never been a horror genre fan- but Steven King is a masterful story-teller. I did find the description of the 'True Knot's' torture tactics to be disturbing- but not so much that I would tell anyone to avoid the book. Just be warned that torture is depicted in this book...
A classically enjoyable Michael Connelly novel-- pleasingly set in the universe of all things Connelly… even Harry Bosch makes a brief appearance, which is always a fun little gift!
Once again: Michael Connelly delivers. His fans will not be disappointed-- I love the Mickey Haller character, despite his overblown guilt about his work. I guess the tension between his guilt, his talent, his love for the law and the desire to connect with his daughter and Maggie are really what he is all about…
I love how Peter Giles voices Mickey Haller. But his entire narration is truly excellent, he is a born narrator and brings the story and characters to life.
I definitely could have listened all the way through… I have that sense with every Connelly book. His books are a roller coaster ride and incredibly entertaining.
Don't miss out of all of Michael Connelly's work- the Harry Bosch series, the Lincoln Lawyer (Michael Haller) and his other stand-alone works.
If you haven't ever read a Bosch book, I strongly recommend starting from book 1… you'll be hooked, but never sorry!
I bought this title because of the hype-- but Rowling was much more compelling in the Harry Potter series than in this genre. Disappointing.
