The book is just way too long for me and the story was way too slow. There were too many characters that did not have anything to do with the story. I found the whole listening experience very boring. sorry!
To start out with I was thrilled that my wait was over for Audrey Niffenegger's next book. I really enjoyed "Time Traveler's Wife" and loved Audrey's N. writing style. I was not disappointed in this book either and the way she paints a story with words simply amazes me.
I listened to an interview with Audrey N. before the release and knew the book was a ghost story so I expected a somewhat supernatural storyline.
After listening to the book I understand that not everyone will be drawn to this story like the "Time Traveler's Wife", but keep in mind this is a whole different kind of story.
I thought the story was good, the characters believable, and the narration by Bianca Amato 5 stars, but what disappointed me and kept me from giving it 5 stars is the last few chapters of the book felt rushed and the ending was not developed like it could have been.
I would reccomend this book if you like a supernatural twist in your reading. If you are expecting something similar to "Time Traveler's Wife" I would look else where!
One of the best books I have listened to in a while. Hemingway's words painted a picture in my mind so vivid that I could smell the salt air and feel the boat rocking against the waves as he battled the big fish. Of course the story goes deeper than just battling the big fish and I will leave the rest of the details for you to discover on your own. This is a classic and the narration by Donald Sutherland is just another plus!!
I am a fan of Stephen King and this book did not disappoint! It kept me on the edge of my seat trying to figure out how the story would unfold. I always enjoy a book that keeps me guessing and "Bag of Bones" did just that. I also thought that Stephen did a great job on the narration! Classic Stephen King!
Wow!! I was blown away by this book and I am hooked on this series of mysteries. I was astonished that Mr. Larsson passed away because I wanted to read more of his writings. "The Girl Who Played with Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked The Hornets Nest" are the next books in the series that were evidently completed before he passed away. I just could not stop listening and found myself sitting in my car in my garage not wanting to turn this audio off. I highly recommend this book and it is well worth the 1 credit I paid! Bravo Mr. Larsson!!!
As expected another great story by Sparks. This story grabbed my attention from the start and kept me interested all the way to the end. I would recommend this book to everyone.
