This book is one of a lifetime. The character development and the depth of understanding of people and their motivations is breathtaking. The extremely detailed descriptions of the sights, sounds and smells of the many venues were compelling without seeming overdone. I feel as if I could identify each place in the book if I went there.
The experience of the deepest friendships he made and of the insights these friends brought him.
There were too many and I would not want to spoil the story for others by telling even some of them.
A gripping tale of adventure and redemption
Don't be put off by the length of the book as it flys by and you are totally absorbed in it.
Gripping performance and great story. Flawlessly interwoven
and left me wanting more. I loved it.
Something less predictable, Better character development and different narrator
Her story is simply a repeat of Cinderella with a few nods to a more adult audience with various mildy sexual references.
This narrator was most deficient in her ability to change voices depending on the gender of the speaker. In the very beginning, I was surprised to find that she had been speaking as the Prince when she totally sounds like a princess.
The description of the gowns and fabrics in the story was its best feature, though that is not saying much.
I will return this book.
Riveting from cover to cover, Liane Moriarty is a discerning and intuitive observer of the human character and personality.
The craftsmanship of the characters swept me along the story carpet with force and openness and credibility.
Exciting story that totally fell apart at the end. Rebecca Lowman's reading was better than the content but even she could not give it the creativity the end should have had. Great read and definitely worth listening to.
