Okay, about it.
I wasn't impressed with the first stories. Good for putting you to sleep. I never got beyond those.
I just couldn't get past the first hour of uninteresting and not at all funny.
It was easy to hear.
I expected more, as a result of all the publicity. A good book, but not especially memorable. I've already forgotten what it was about, a year after listening to it and I l know at the time I wasn't thrilled by the story.
Only the time saving aspect of doing two things at once.
Worth listening to.
The voice depicting the senior main character
His being accepted by the circus owner after leaving the nursing home.
I don't know, but this is excellent.
The old man scenes.
I mentally switched off at 1.30 minutes in and was bored by it at 2 hour mark and turned it OFF for good.
Started off well then I got the feeling of 'more or the same,' and slow story.
A faster moving plot.
I'm not a Nora Roberts fan, I know many love her work this started good then just lost me. Just not my taste. Two hours of storytelling that could have been more exciting if told in thirty minutes or at the very least been edited to remove 25% in order to speed the plot and have more happening with less embroidery of words—words which were great to begin with initially but became tedious at the two hour mark once you had had enough of them.
I'm sure i would have never finished the print version, this was so long, I even had to put the audio book aside twice. It could have been several smaller novels.
Hmm. Hard to say. The author had an interesting and skilled writing style. I cannot say that it is my favorite style, only that the flowery style of wriign he chose to use he did well. I prefer less embroidered writing and a faster moving plot, however I don't take this away from the author, he has a right to his stylized way of writing.
None. It all got a bit tedious after it had gone on for so long.
He is a great writer, he will have his fans. I'd prefer to see his work tightly edited in a film than try to get though one of his books again. There is also a repetition of child rape in several of his books. Authors do sometimes repeat themes, so having read a couple now I'll not read another. He is a master of prose, I'm more a fan of a faster moving great story. My summer, would be better with fewer words, but then it wouldn't be a Pat Conroy. Definitely one for the Pat Conroy fan.
Great value if you like a long listen.
One of the best. This is true Wit.
None. I do recall the original Walter Mitty film with Danny Kaye fondly as I listened to this.
The rhythm and pace.
Walter Mitty. Because he is the main character and he is responsible for the story.
Just loved it. :-) Made up for paying for several audio books promoted as humorous that were not. Humour is a difficult skill to master and this audiobook has it.
Excellent author's advice.
Obviously the author.
Nothing in particular. There wasn't anything new that I hadn't heard, however he expressed it well.
Well worth listening to and keeping in your library for a refresher.
UH! Felt like getting a refund. Talk about the classic, how not to end a novel. NEVER would buy this author again.
Waste of time and money. Story was okay, ending left you feeling cheated and that you had wasted hours to get nowhere. I don't have hours to waste on a pathetic ending story.
NEVER. I'd like to return this one.
Never. Unless it is being read in parts to help teach young women what a predator, and not a romantic hero looks like.
Favorite? What is favorite about hearing a woman say 'No' for an hour and a half and them have him run his hands up on to her bum and she thinks that was wonderful? Insulting to both men and women. TRASH! An absolute affront to one's intelligence. Men go to jail for not accepting 'No.' And here we have a woman writing Oh but isn't he the romantic, hero. Absolute bullshit.
I cannot believe that women buy this stuff and read it. Have they such low self esteem these days? A man like that should have been reported to the police at the first grope.
