The story is very depressing and the characters are somewhat lifeless.
I am on a quest to read all of Charles Dickens' titles so I can get a better impresion of the world that he lived in.
The narrator was excellent however it might have improved the story if more narrators were involved (for the women in particular).
The characters are absolutely necessary to this story.
Though it is a classic story, I doubt I will be in any hurry to read this selection again.
Listening to the account of his relationship with his mother during her battle with breast cancer and eventual death.
He is very well spoken and easy to follow
The book in general places Hitler in a different light as it shows the events that occur around him prior to his rise to power.
I am still not a fan of Hitler, but one cannot fully understand the tyrant without learning everything possible from all sides. A standard precept of History states that history is always written by the winners.
The narrator did a fine job.
Pretty much everything.
This book is not worth any listening time
Considering that I have very little time to read printed editions, I always consider the Audible version of a book to be invaluable.
believe it or not, I consider the parallels between Charles Manson and Adolf Hitler to be significant (and rather scary).Who would have ever considered that to psychopaths of this magnitude could have risen to the public forefront in the same century!
I have never listened to Scott Brick, but I will be on the look out for more of his work!
Once I started listening to this book, it was VERY hard to put it down.
This is an awesome piece of history performed by a wonderful reader. Definitely worth the time!
Regardless of the reviews, this book is a total bust with little (or no) point at all.
This series is easy to read and totally captivating. Patricia's ability to create a world that is both magical and familiar makes her one of my very favorite writers.
Eff (of course) is my favorite character because of her mild mannerism as well as her sarcastic wit.
Amanda Ronconi's performance quickly draw's the listener into the plot.
I was hooked from the very beginning of the first book and wanted to listen to them all immediately
I truly enjoy Patricia's ability to create characters and situations that are easy to imagine and her writing style flows so nicely. I am looking forward to the last installment of this story line!
The story line had some incredible potential that remained unfulfilled unfortunately. I loved the relationship that was developing between Sadie and George, but of course it was never brought to the desired conclusion.
I believe that the audio versions of Charles Dickens work to be much easier to follow than the written version simply because the diction and verbal tenses are easier to follow.
The inevitable arrest of the jew.
Alex Jennings does very well with these types of classic novels
Oliver Twist is a very good book but (in my opinion) does not compare to David Copperfield!
This is a totally different book that I expected. I wasn't too sure about the content prior to listening, but it is a completely enjoyable read.
Amanda does an amazing job with this series.
