The examples drawn from everyday life made this a compelling listen. American Girl dolls, princess parties, Toddlers & Tiaras, even Miley Cyrus - I could relate to all of it. The author has really done her research and draws upon many experts in various fields to flesh out her warnings about the dangers of Cinderella and the rest of the princess pack to young women as they struggle to find their place in a world that increasingly pits the Real Housewives of Orange County against the women of the WBA. When even female Olympic divers wear eyeliner as they compete, what does this say about the messages are we giving little girls?I urge all parents, mothers AND fathers, of young girls to read or listen to this book NOW!
The ending was abrupt and awkwardly finished.
Yes. I'm a big Philippa Gregory fan and this new type of fiction from her is wonderful. The main characters are interesting, diverse and believable. I love the way she wove medieval views of witches, magic, demons, werewolves and other unexplained phenomena into this tale and used them to explain the events of the novel.
Where the "werewolf's" mother is accidentally pushed into the pit with him and realizes it's her long-lost son.
The Changeling was well worth the time to listen. I'll be listening to the rest of the series too.
Keeps you guessing
I loved that Harry fell in love (again) in spite of his better instincts.
The voices were all well done and the characters quite distinct. Peter was able to clearly convey all ages and sexes well.
When the Coroner explains the extent of the injuries that the child endured prior to death, Harry's reaction moved me. It was real, it was deep and I was sad for the dead boy too - not just because he'd been killed but because he had suffered so much before he died.
If you haven't been introduced to Harry Bosch and his particular view of Los Angeles, do yourself a favor and start now! Connelly is a fine writer who knows his subjects and the world in which they move.
The 7th Month is one of the few audible short stories I've listened to. It was good, well-narrated, held my interest, and other than a few implausible moments, was terrific.
I found the movie set in the cemetery to be most interesting, the behind-the-scenes activities seemed accurately portrayed.
I liked most of the story accepted by her boyfriend or not intruded on my enjoyment as I found it unbelievable and fake - creating drama for drama's sake. Also, are there really still foolish men who think they can buy girlfriends?
She wears a badge, a gun and a maternity dress - and her arrest record is better than most of the department.
The characters were enjoyable, entertaining, unique and amazing. I particularly enjoyed the reimagining of historical people are magical beings. The narration was quite good too.
Amid the utter destruction of the coastal California mansion, Faye discovers the truth depth of her magical abilities, saving most of her companions. The aerial battle with the dirigibles was amazing as well and a great climax to the novel.
This was my first Bronson Pinchot novel and I will look for others read by him.
I laughed at some of the antics in the novel and was very involved with the fates of the major characters. This novel has a well-fleshed out, believable (even though they're magical) cast.
I LOVED that this tale was placed in the 30s and drew on so many 'real' people who lived in that time period yet completely revamped history. Larry Correia is one of my new favorite authors!
The modern-day characters seemed too stock and didn't add as much to the tale as the historical ones did. I also felt the author wrote in the voice of a woman to invoke more sympathy in the reader - it didn't work.
I like this genre but will probably stay away from this author.
The narration was good; it didn't intrude on the story at all which sometimes occurs.
I would cut most of the modern-day portions of the novel. The tale is really the Armenian genocide and I was disappointed when the story moved back to modern times. I didn't care about the spoiled girl who became an indulged middle class wife - she was unappealing and a tough narrator for me.
I never quite understood the purpose of the title. Seems like another inside joke the author was having on his readers.
Castle, yes, Johnny Heller: NO!! Not even for free.
Love the interplay between Nikki Heat and Rook.
A different narrator would have helped immensely. This guy has a voice and accent that grates on the nerves and he's indistinct. The sound level is too low as well so I feel like I'm missing important parts. Honestly, I have trouble telling what he's saying half the time.
PLEASE hire a different narrator for any other Castle novels.
