Great book with a wonderful reader. Heard about some of the books premises before but not with this detail, reasoning, and scientific reasoning. Books theories will blow the minds of most Liberals and Conservatives. Should be required reading in High School.
The Harry Bosch at the best of times can be a bit dry and bland but the better ones pick up speed and have surprise endings. This is one of the least exciting and most disappointing. The story was bland most of the way through and it never really picked up speed. Also the ending seemed very flat. Was looking forward to this one because the last 3 or 4 seemed to be getting better and better. This book is recommended only for the Harry Bosch fans that need to read every one in the series.
This is the first John Grisham book I couldn't finish. I've read and loved them all but I just couldn't get into this one. The message of the book is Important but I didn't like the characters much. The town the story takes place in is very depressing (why would anyone want to live there... or visit their as a reader) Like many other reviewers I wasn't as impressed with the reader. Don't know why he has stopped using Michael Bech which was always the best for his books. Sure I know the main character was a woman but good male readers can handle that or there are loads of other female readers that would have been better suited for this project.
I wanted to like this book and hope John's next one is back to the style I love so much.
Great idea for a book but the actually story can be a bit silly and flat. Had fun with it but it didn't hold me like I like from a story. Characters are a bit silly but I can't decide if that was fun or annoying or a bit of both.
I was disappointed in this 3rd in the John Puller series. First of all the main character is to flat and two dimensional. It was a little cute but not as over done in the earlier books but it balloons in this one. The character has little imagination, has no lustful thoughts, has no interests outside work, has no sense of humor, and his lines are corny and flat. The story wasn't as good and it was too implausible. The female reader, Orlagh Cassidy, also made the corny female dialect seem even stupider and more annoying. It's like the author is writing for a B movie from the fifties. Ending was also a disappointment.
Fun and hard boiled super hero type story that almost makes you believe with its science fiction twist. Patching it together with a different version of earth history, the roaring 20's, and a bit of steam punk type technology adds to the fun. Great characters that make you care about them. Top that with a incredible reader and you hate to pause in your listening to go to work. Don't miss it.
This is a tame version of a Stephen King story. Sweet, a bit innocent, sappy at times, and with a little bit tear jerking at the end. Reminds me of the pulp fiction of the 60's. I usually don't like most Stephen King novels because to me the principal characters are often unlikeable, the language he uses is often excessive to the point of being less realistic instead of more, and and the world's he creates seem to bland more than dark. The good news is that this novel is the opposite of all these things.
Had fun with the series but the first 2 were a bit slow at times. This one was more fun, fast moving, and entertaining.
Disabled dog meets disabled boy. They find each other and fall in love the first quarter of the book. The rest of the book are the many and continuing medical problems of both which gets tiresome. This story is more suited for a long article in a newspaper and not so much in a book. It is heart warming and can bring tears to your eyes.
This young Reacher short story is even more unbelievable than his usual but still fun. Gave it three stars because what happens to one of the characters at the end just adds to much to the impossible.
I've read all Larry McMurtry's Western stories and loved them all starting with his best, Lonesome Dove so I had to have this one. However the story seemed cut out from another that he never threw away. It also seems to be a repeat of many of his cowboy stories with a character from a past one passing through this one. Gave it 3 stars because the humorous dialog he imagines of that time (similar to his other westerns) that also illustrates the casual savagery of The West. He also paints a picture that makes me wonder how any sane person could ever imagine cowboy life as romantic and adventurous but it certainly was interesting.
