I couldn't take it on audio. Too complex and challenging for dog walking. Better by the fire.
about the middle. I prefer really long books and this is fairly short
the beetles. totally cool.
the boxer. a sociopath with a penchant for directness. he cuts to the chase
an odd book for a Austin fan, but it was engaging
Miscast. Clarity. Misplaced emphasis. That's four.
I liked the feminist twist to a sci fy story. If you like excellent description of combat between battleships, you'll like this book. The star ships maneuver like sailboats at light speed in a vast three dimensional ocean. Cool, but not really my thing.
I wanted to like this but the plot was contrived, the characters unconvincing, and the historical setting muddled. I almost never leave a book unfinished but managed to do so on Juliet.
Nice characterization. Descent mystery well read. I'll look for this reader again. This book is aimed at a female audience.
a lot of words but I like that. never boring. I will save to listen again.
good book for listening. shared it with a teenager and an 89 year old. we all liked it.
Great historical context. cites personal letters and journals not readily available to an English only reader. Allows individual personality to operate as a cultural signifier. I sound like a professor, which I am, but this is a good read if you like history and think art matters.
