It's a bit hard to believe that a policeman's son is as naive as Tennyson appears to be, so I had a hard time dealing with the fact that the events depicted in the story actually could happen. To believe that Tennyson was a former pimp and then believe that he would pick up a stray kid, play hero, etc. stretches the imagination. Parts of the story was interesting but for the most part, it was a bit of a joke to listen to this pitiful story. Also the narrator was a little too exaggerated in his story telling even down to the sex scenes. I would recommend not wasting one's time nor money listening to this drivel.
Don't really know as I've only dealt with the audiobook. However, audio is very descriptive and allows me to follow along the story with images in my head. It also allows me to undertake other things while listening to the story.
When the niece confronts the Uncle with the fact that the suicide note lays out the reality of the situation the brother had been living with for years and the Uncle unable to cope with the revelation.
She made the book come to life. She was able to take me inside various characters, their thinking and why they took a certain approach to a happening. I was able to understand that one really is what they where, when. In other words, you're shaped by your environment, culture, beliefs, and teachings as you make your way through life. One resists change because their comfort zone is challenged. Also you begin to examine what impacts your life and why.
Yes, the stark brutality of various situations when faced with change.
Yes, thoroughly enjoyed the story. Look for many more to come by this author. This was the first time I listened to her. She took me on a willd ride and I loved it.
No particularly....the British accent rather turned me off and I didn't find myself waiting for another boring descriptive scene. The narrator's delivery was a turn-off..
The delivery of the age old story - even the dangerous scenes did not elicit any emotion.
monotonous, boring, unexciting
Too uneventful protrayal of what should have been breathtaking scenes for me. I was disappointed.l
Love reading Carl Weber's books. The plots are tightly woven, building the interest to its peak. As the author brings the reader down, he does it with such smoothness. I find myself wanting to read his books more and more. Yes, I highly recommend this book
Similar authors which leaves one entranced is Patterson. I just finished reading "Paris With Love" and found that the ride was well worth it. Jonathan and Faye Kellerman's books do the same as does JR Ward.
Niles, Paris, and Rio were my favorites although all of the family portrayals were good.
Yes, such a love story between Niles and Paris. I felt Paris' excitement and pain right up to the end. Also the loyalty angle to the family's other business was very mysterious yet unsetteling.
Well, I probably missed the story of Paris and her baby's father (The Family Business by Carl Weber)...I would like to think it was Niles but I don't recall it being mentioned...I remember that Paris and London (her sister) were pregnant at the same time. I would like to listen to how LC and his wife got together along with stores about the rest of the family, they're encounters and how they fit into the "family business."
Yes, perhaps this experience was a fluke.
No. I did not get a sense of excitement from the narrator even during the fight scene near the end
Kinda dragged, as though it was hard to move through the events happening in the story. The main character, as well as the rest, did not present a moving performance throughout the story from the beginning to the end.
No, I was left with a unsatisfied feeling. Felt it was a waste of time. Now it could have been because of the narrator 's handling of the characters. Very lackluster.
Initially, I thought this book was not going to hold my interest especially since it covered sports. Boy was I wrong. This book was good. It kept me in suspense wondering just who is the killer! After many turns and twists, I'm finally learn the killer (which is a total surprise) and I am still held in suspense when the killer is apprehended and the brought to justice. How it's done and by whom is just great. The plot weaves in many characters, who all have a story to tell, and all of whom play an intricate part to play. I loved it--so much so that I listened to it again.
Leave it to Stephen King to write a chilling story about what could happen using cell phones. It chilled my bones to think one's behavior could be controlled though cell phone use! What's so upsetting is cell phone use is so prevailing. Just about everyone has one and uses it. This story kept me spellbound yet repulsed to think that perhaps it could happen?
I recommend this book if you like living on the edge.
For the life of me, I could not get into this storyline. It was fantasy and reality mixed and the character was so, so boring. I simply could not finish it and am sorry I used a book credit to purchase it. The characters are unbelievable, false and too simple. I would not recommend this book to snyone for fear they would resort to suicide.
I really liked this book. It grabbed my attention from the start and I found myself anticipating what would happen next. The plot involves a series of want-to-be actors who seek stardom quickly by circumventing hard work, reputable people and companies and what can happen when one meets with unscrupulous people. Through numerous interviews, I was kept guessing the identity of the real killer. In addition, the book mixed romance, mystery, comedy and seriousness and I began to ride along with the Dr. Deleware and Milo as they pursued the killer. Dr. Delaware and Milo complement each other and make a great team. Together, they take you through a maze of dark and unique characters while moving you towards the ultimate climax - catching the killer. I am waiting for Kellerman's next book--I know I won't be disappointed.
