When I came across this book I didn't hesitate. I had to have it. For me Joan Rivers has always been the best. The thought of a diary by Joan Rivers made me feel all tingly with anticipation.
This book was an amazing experience. I loved the whole thing. I wish that the diary would have covered every single day of the year for which this diary covers. Some days are missing. I can think of many good reasons why these days would have been missed and I do understand. We can't all have everything we want, right? Well, I sometimes think we all should have everything we need. Let me tell you this book came to me at a time when I really needed it. (I've been going through such troubles this year) This book got me smiling and laughing and that was what I was really in need of!!
Thank you so much Joan Rivers for this book. You're always amazing!!
I'm so glad that you narrated this book yourself, your words always need to be heard in your voice. You're unique and your voice is unique. I enjoyed this book so much.
It was very much worth the credit I used to get this book and I have already listened more than once. Everyone really needs to get this book, it's an experience you won't regret.
I had some friends tell me not to get this book as it was not good. Well, I don't know what they were talking about or what they were thinking. This really was a good book! Not perfect but most definitely not bad.
I love that David Grimm includes experiences with and feelings about his cats. Also, I enjoyed the variety within the types of people that he spent time with while 'researching' this book. There were so many great moments here. It was very worth it to me to have spent one of my credits on this book, I really enjoyed it.
Graham Hamilton was a good narrator for this book. He did a good job.
I do recommend this book and I will be listening to it again.
My question refers to evil. Will people who commit evil acts continue to get away with it?
Perhaps some will think that has nothing to do with this book, but that is what I was left feeling when I finished this book.
There is much of the book that is quite hard to get through due to the horrid (that's the best word I can come up with at the moment but nowhere strong enough) things that happen and are discovered. Which leads me to another thought what is going to happen to the women and girls and innocent children. Is there something we can do for them?
I am glad that I came upon this book and that I have listened to it. I'm not sure if I would've gotten through it if I was reading it myself. I do feel that it was worth the credit that I spent on it.
I am hoping that Rebecca Musser will give us another book in the future and I applaud her for her courage and determination. Thank you for sharing this book with us.
I find it hard to describe the experience that this book provides but I need to try. I have both the physical copy of this book as well as this audio. It was very much worth it to me to get both forms. I was anxious for this book to come out for a long time and it was worth the wait. As usual Sherrilyn Kenyon sent me on a roller-coaster ride emotionally and this time the ride was epic!! I was left with a great sense of guilt for having judged Styxx without knowing his story as I've heard that many other people did as well.
I've since read this book a couple extra times and I'm sure that I will give it at least one more perusal. I really enjoyed the narration for this book. Fred Berman did a great job and I don't have any complaints.
It's my opinion that everyone needs to experience this book!!!
There are parts of the book that are hard to get through but there are also amazing wonderful moments. I will probably be saying this for quite some time but I'll only say it once here: I LOVE this book!!!!!
This book was quite good. I found it annoying and frustrating the way in which the story switches between Tyen and Rielle. Another thing that bothered me was that I was fully expecting something to happen between two of the characters and it never did. It is a good story well written however.
The narration was quite good. I was pleased with both narrators and didn't have any complaints. I must mention though that I did enjoy Hannah Norris the most. There wasn't anything lacking with Grant Cartwright. He narrated just as good as Hannah Norris, I can't explain why I enjoyed her narration more but I did.
I'm not sure if I will be listening to this book again anytime soon. I wouldn't have any problems listening to it again, but there are so many other books out there and too little time.
I was really anxious to sink my teeth into this course. The subject matter was truly satisfying for me (I love soaking up all the history that I can). The course itself was great! I thoroughly enjoyed the course itself. However, this was much overshadowed by the 'performance' . I don't know if it's just his style of lecturing but Professor Kenneth W. Harl seemed to always be yelling. There would be times where this approach would have improved the presentation of the lecture if done sparingly. When he seems to be yelling all the time through every lecture through the whole course this most definitely ruined it for me.
I highly doubt I will ever be listening to this again just because of the 'performance'. The 'performance' is what ruined this course for me and therefore why I rated it the way that I did. I've since noticed that Professor Harl has done many other courses whose subject matter I very much would like to learn of, but I am extremely hesitant to get them due to how he narrated this one.
I liked the beginning. I appreciated finding out the reasons behind why the Golem was made. There is tragedy and comedy in this book in a good way. Such as the way the Jinni is released from his 'prison'. It did bother me by how long it took for the Golem and the Jinni to meet. Their meeting could have happened a lot sooner. Also, I wasn't very happy with the ending. However, the ending did leave me feeling that there should be many more books to follow this one. I did look and wasn't able to find one.
George Guidall did a good job narrating this book. I have no complaints here. I have heard some of his narrations that I didn't like as much as this one. Here he really did do a good job.
This book is a definite must read/listen. I was very happy with it and disappointed when it was nearing the end for I did want more. It was well worth the credit spent!
I love the writing of Philippa Gregory, her work always puts me through a gamut of emotions. The thing that really stuck out for me with this book was cruelty. Elizabeth of York was treated so cruelly by the King and his mother, yet she maintained her dignity and always acted as a queen should.
There were many heart-breaking moments throughout the book, there were a few times where I needed to stop listening for a while as the injustices were overwhelming me. Yet I was anxious to return to the book, such a spell had been weaved. I have to think what would truly be going on inside the mind and hearts of those who actually lived these lives. What would they make of how we live today?
I consider this one of the greatest books that I've ever read. It certainly ranks above some of the others in this series although I did love each book.
Bianca Amato did an amazing job as narrator! Indeed I may be tempted to check out what else she has narrated.
Before purchasing this one I was a bit hesitant...let me explain. For years I'd wanted to read Pandora, I wanted so much to hear about her life, experiences, etc. However when reading the description I felt that it was showing that the book was only going to cover her time with Marius which is only a fraction of her life, she is approximately 2000 yrs old. I had gotten to the point where I felt I needed to find out what Pandora had to say. So I bought it.
My suspicion proved correct. The book only covered her time with Marius. I was so happy to be hearing historically things which I'd never learnt about...I am absolutely obsessed with history and love to soak in all forms historical. So, in that vein the book truly satisfied me, up to a point...I wish that this book(or perhaps a sequel, or an addition to the series)would cover the years that were not covered here.
It was a joy to find out exactly what it was like for Pandora and Marius to be together from Pandora's perspective. There was so much attention to detail. (though I wish we could have found out what happened to Flavius after he left Marius and Pandora) I enjoyed the story so much that I would have given it 5 stars if the huge gap left out of her story had been touched on. This "gap" bothered me so much that I had to go with 4 stars. But I have to say it is a great book! I will be listening to it again, for what is there of Pandora's story is such an intense and wonderful experience that I definitely need to experience it again.
With that said I need to send out this prayer "Anne Rice please give us a really long book!!!"
I am a lover of epics I must say.
Kate Reading was awesome with the narration. Due to her accent there were a few instances where I had to concentrate on what word I was hearing (I hope you understand what I mean) but these were a few instances, I'd say no more than 5 throughout the whole book. I must mention that I'm not good with understanding accents, so I believe in this case it was my failing, thus I did give 5 stars for performance as it was indeed a good narration.
In case you haven't caught it I very much recommend this book! It was more than well worth the time and the credit used!
This book turned out to be an intense ride! I have loved the whole series since I discovered it recently, however I have to say this book definitely is in a category of it's own, in a good way.
Firstly I want to say that I had the hardest time getting any sleep because all I wanted to do was get back to the book and soak it all in. I will definitely be listening to it many more times.
The reason I gave 4 stars in stead of 5 for story and performance are simple to explain. With the story I was loving the whole thing but i had 2 issues. There was in one scene a very crude word used which was offensive to me and ruined the whole scene. The second issue I had was the last hour of the book felt too rushed. It was like now that the end was near the authors rushed towards the conclusion. By the way, the "conclusion" left me aching to get to the next book. Please release the next book soon!!!
I had to give 4 stars for the performance although I really wanted to give 5. It was such a minor issue but I felt that it wouldn't be right to overlook it and give 5. There were two instances in the book(there may have been more and I didn't notice them or not) where the narrator messed up on the accent of one of the important characters. Stephen R. Thorne did a great job narrating, making the book more of a thrill ride and I have lots of respect for how difficult it is to do what good narrators do, but the fact that the accent was of an important character could not be overlooked by me.
I most definitely do recommend this book, it is a must listen!! I will definitely be listening again. As my headline suggests this book is an intense thrill ride!!!! Happy listening!
