I would say it ranks in the high five.
The transformation of the storyline from a witches brew to a romance.
Gosh golly it's hard to say, there's so much action in this audiobook. I would say, the escape from the .....can't tell because it would ruin the story for someone.
The most interesting point that stands out in this book is you never know if Matthew really and truly loses his virginity or not.
No, actually the audio span was so long and the storyline so massive I enjoyed listening to this in intervals.
This was my first Robert McCammon novel however I see that his character Matthew has a series of novels where I believe he becomes a detective. I am certainly interested in reading up on young Matthew and seeing how things go for him from this point on in his life.
I actually did not read the print version however Jodi Long did a fantastic job as narrator.She made this story come alive right before your eyes. The 1938 San Francisco visual was definitely audible and vivid. See's words come dancing around like snowflakes falling to the ground as you listen to Jodi recite author Lee See's words. I absolutly recommend this book for the Noir Era lovers!
Grace was the star character and her family situation was harsh and made the listener feel for her however I choose to go with Ruby as my absolute favorite bad girl of the story. I found myself wanting to listen more intently just to overhear the outcome of her ridged disposition. I don't want to tell too much about the story, so all I will say is Ruby was definitely colorful and Helen is not as innocent as she appears to be audibly.
I found this question a repetition of the above, thereforer the answer would be the same as above.
I would not rename this book, I believe Lee See named it perfectly.
I give this a five star on performance and 4 1/2 on the story. This book is definitely a must read! If you like stories of dancing girls and drama, I also recommend Under The Strobe Lights volume 1 The Platinum Pussycat by Author DeAnn DeVille now selling on audible.
Pretty much, I only listen to stories once, unless it's something I feel like I missed. It's possible, I missed something because the ending was truly a surprise. So yes, I would consider listening to this story again.
Yes, I kept thinking this child Picasso, was going to end up an orphan. I don't want to give away too much of the story however it was clear one of the three ladies killed Oliver. I was dead set on Picasso's mom Diana actually being the one that pulled the trigger.
The best character was Picasso, she made the book all by herself. The storyline would not have be a story with out her witty opinions.
An American Polygamous Murder
Kristy & Lindsay were just so fascinating and different. I never expected the two girls of committing such a horrible crime at the age of 11 years old.
Nothing really could have been done, maybe the end could have been very different. There was no reason to make one of the characters suffer. They both had been through enough and I like to have seen them both walk away scott free.
Her narration made it worth listening too.
Wrong place at the wrong time can be deadly.
I would say it was somewhat worth the purchase.
Yes, I indeed would. I wasn't sure if I liked the book at first, but it grew on me and became a fantastic novel.
Yes, I would. It was well worth the purchase.
Fannie was fascinating and turned out to be one of the greatest outstanding characters. I would not have named it Doll Baby though Fannie's little dark secret fit it better . Ibby although the main character actually was a supporting character in my opinion.
Yes, of course I enjoyed this book. The setting was very fitting, the narrator was very fitting as well.
Nice novel with a surprising little secret at the end. I never would have guessed and as a writer myself it's often hard to surprise me, well done.
Yes, I have listened over five times at least, I just could not get enough of this book!
Goldie of course, but her sister Petracure was of course my next best favorite character.
No....but I absolutely loved this and recommended it to all my friends. They listened and not one disputed the fact the book was fantastic!
I just had a complete shock and delight from every word written. I'm actually not a Jerome Dicky fan...however this book made him A+ on my list. I hope he does more work on this level.
This book had powerful characters and was the best novel I has read in sometime. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to anyone in the mood for an awesome thriller! I completely loved it.
Yes, the narrator was awesome
I would have to say Starlet Santana, her self liking and money motivation made her one of the best characters in volume 1. I can't wait until volume 2 comes out just to see what mayhem she wonders into or rather what hotel room she wonders into next. Crystal wasn't a main character however I liked her for her straightforward wretched ways.
DEVILLE seem to handle narration with ease and the parts were rather difficult being the characters switched so often.I will have to give her an A on narration
SEX, LIES & STRIPTEASE...
This story revolved around an Adult Entertainment nightclub however it was nice that the writer built the story outside the building as well. I enjoyed getting to know the characters and I'm truly excited and anticipate the second volume.
Odyssey of Wonderland
My first thoughts were of Looking Through The Looking Glass or possibly Alice and Wonderland . I would say more of the latter due to the fact Tara returned from this fairyland to try and readjust to normal life because there have been many variations of that story in itself which would collate it to this one.
There were many scenes I loved in this book which makes it rather hard to put a finger on the best one. If I had to pick one, I would say the story of sex women..., it was rather shocking. I like shocks in a storyline and it wasn't so much of a jolt that it turned me off from the story, in fact it added a tasteful allure to the audio.
Odyssey Through A Wonderland
I was skeptical of John Lee's ability to pull off the female lead however he did a wonderful job. I loved this novel so much that I listen to it twice and would listen to it again just for the bliss of it. I highly recommend this novel it was delightful and enjoyable to listen to. This was my first Graham Joyce novel, however I will certainly search out more of her work.
I would recommend this book due to the intensity and depth of the story and it's characters to all of my family and friends.
I have been caught up in a insomniac slumber over this book for days. I have constantly listened to the storyline trying to figure out the plot. Seth Hubbard leaves a holographic will one year after he has had one written up by his lawyer. In this will he leaves Ledie, his maid and caregiver 93% of 23 million dollars. That alone makes you wonder and to add to it she happens to be a 43 year old not half bad looking black women and he I believe from memory was in his 70's and not a Robert Redford look alike? So, the natural response is, it was about sex or money...however I felt it was about something else?
My favorite scene was when Seth's Brother is found Hansel in Alaska by Lushun and mysteriously shows up after being ill disguised in a baseball cap and sports apparel jacket.
Southern Secrets, Holographic Will's, Sex and Money
John Grisham happens to be a profound storyteller, when it comes to legal crime stories however Michael Beck is the best narrator I've heard in a really long time. This story is not only enjoyable but takes you on a ride through the deep south in the 80's and back in the 1900's. I give my full recommendation on this southern tale, it is worth every penny.
The way the story appears to take on different avenues and plots, leaving the listener wondering just who killed the mysterious 17 year old girls? Who has Snow White mummified all dolled up... is the scary question?
This was my 1st Nele Neuhaus novel however I would compare her to Lisa Gardner, if I had to compare works to another author mainly because of the diverse plots and twist and turns of the main characters guilt or innocence.
Oliver von Bodenstein complex situation with his wife during the story is by far compelling and makes him one of my endeared characters. I also cant forget the main character Tobias Sartorius who has been accused of murder. Tobias is so hot, you can't believe you could like someone who may have committed such a crime.
I enjoyed listening to this audio in intervals, however the closer I came to end the more I wanted to find out who the killer was. I ended up listening to the last four hours straight to the end nonstop. I'll tell you a secret, the end is a funny surprise and turns out to be well worth the purchase.
