No, the beginning was good and then it spiraled downhill. It was hard to listen to the narrator portray the whiny child Lauren and any/all women characters. The most irritating parts of the book were Lauren's continuing questioning and Nathans continuing indulgence.
No. I am not planning to listen to any more Nathan McBride novels and will avoid anything read by Dick Hill.
No, absolutely not. I did not enjoy his portrayal of any of the characters, especially women's voices. He also spoke slowly as if telling parts of the story to a mentally challenged person. Those parts created for me more frustration than creating suspense. Overall, I plan to avoid this narrator and will opt to read the book myself.
Too many good books and great narrators like Will Patton and Grover Gardner to listen to.
I loved this story. I had recently finished A Town Like Alice which was fabulous and inspired me to read another Nevil Shute story. I didn't want it to end, and wish it had a sequel. I just downloaded another Nevil Shute book.
This is the best book I've heard this year and will recommend it to everyone. The story is inspiring and the narration is great. Want to read more of Nevil Shute and eager to listen to Robin Bailey narrate again.
I just assumed this would be filled with the quick wit that I've come to expect from a David Rosenfelt novel. I found it lacking, but interesting enough to listen to instead of watching TV. I was entertained by the novel taking place in Maine, as I live on an island off the coast of Maine and am familiar with the restaurants and areas he mentioned.
I hope he soon returns with the 5 star Carpenter/ Gardner duo... plus Tara.
The story had enough substance to make me continue but it was very depressing. I will not be recommending this story to friends.
I would have given this book 5 stars but for the grating narration of Dick Hill. Tim Conway has always been a favorite comedian of mine. I grew up watching McHales Navy and the Carol Burnett Show and became a big Tim Conway fan. It was an interesting book, but had to take several breaks because of Dick Hill's irritating narration. This is not the first book I ordered narrated by Dick Hill and abandoned. It was my adoration of Tim Conway that inspired me to complete it, the other books I ordered that were narrated by Dick Hill I never finished.
Stuck in a car on a road trip with this book and started looking for a tree to drive into. A predictable, unrealistic tale laced with descriptive sex....yuk. The entertainment came from wondering if this book could get any worse and yes it progressively deteriorates. It's a waste of time.
Whenever I have a lengthy project I hunt for a story narrated by Will Patton. This was a good story and Patton's captivating timbre made it into an excellent listen. I highly recommend this book.
I have enjoyed The Walk series every step of the way. Richard Paul Evans delivers not only in text but in narration. I can not recommend this author and this adventure more highly than to say I have shared this with everyone I love...those who enjoy listening received an audio version, those who prefer reading were sent each sequel as soon as it was in print. A great story.
Under all the monologue there was a good story...........too much monologue, it went on and on and on and on and on and on
Yes - from this author
No...could have been a good story if cut in half.
Too drawn out........hopelessly frustrated listening to every thought the main character had and always hoping it would advance faster.
Both the prologue and the book's narrators were remedial at best. Surprised at Pat Conroy's stumbled prologue delivery. Dick Hill was brutal. Reminded me of a third grader reciting the adventures of Dick, Jane and Sally. Too bad. It was disappointing as I was eager to hear Pat Conroy's newest book. Plan to read it as soon as I can erase Dick Hill's voice from my memory.
Selected Will Patten to read it - including the prologue.
