This was the most disappointing Faye Kellerman ever. I really did not want to finish it but I do hate to give up, just in case it turns brilliant. This was a yawn from beginning to end. I have never said that about any of her Decker books and I have read almost all of them from the Ritual Bath on. So sad.....
Love Tana French books, that is until now. Was waiting with bated breath for this to come out and was the first to read it amongst my friends. What? If I was not from Dublin I would not have known half of what was being said. I live in America and my American friends did not have a clue. For me, a big letdown was the language. No need for all the bad language, is there? The story was not very interesting and could have been told in half the time. I was a little amused at times, little being the operative word. Subject matter is very important in todays world and this could have been an incredible story if told in a different way. Tana you have let your readers down this time for sure.
All I can say is that this couple deserved each other.....
A much better story, I am sure
I will keep Brideshead Revisited on my IPod forever. I will listen to it again and again. I love the story and Jeremy Irons tell it to perfection. The story came alive visually for me through his soothing voice. Loved it!
Although it was very hard to listen to the horrid details of life in the trenches, it was real. Going back to Brideshead was told with such emotional sadness that I have to admit I cried.
I cannot choose because each one had their own importance to the story.
Oh yes, however I could not do that. Could hardly wait for the next chance to listen.
This was a very good visual of life in the trenches which I had never thought about before. I saw this production on PBS many years ago and loved it then. The book gives a different slant on the reality and emotional part of the story which cannot be fully captured in film.
Thank you for bringing this book back and THANK YOU Jeremy Irons for this great audio version. I want to listen to more of you on Books on Tape.
