I liked "Sharp Objects" but I love this book. It starts out strong and just keeps hitting you. I highly recommend this book if you want an engaging thriller.
While this is a novel from 1977 it does not come off as dated. Its story is solid, its characters are interesting, and the pace is just right for a nature horror story.
The movie was incomprehensible without the book as reference. With the book, the movie is pretty, if pretentious. I recommend the book highly and Dick Hill does an excellent job of narration.
These are the "oldies but goodies" of the King short stories. I wish Night Shift was all in one volume but the production values are well worth the cost.
Wrapped in a memoir is a wealth of information about how TV works (or worked during the Raymond years). I love the fact that instead of quoting from speeches he's given, the book contains the actual recordings of the speeches themselves. Well done, Mr. Rosenthal, well done.
Both the writing and the performance capture the mood of the piece and keep your attention. I'll be looking for more Sallee
I'm not certain for whom this was written. I'd expect such thin repetitive stories from a 10 year old but I would never pay money for them (again). Even young adult horror stories can be fun but these are neither well written nor fun. I feel like the victim of a terrible hoax.
Given the material, the narrator could never have polished these stories into gems but I get the impression he was trying to hide bad writing with enthusiastic overacting. I started to think this whole thing was a poorly done parody.
There are no characters, just barely described undeveloped actors in bad drama.
I can usually find something nice to say because an author and a narrator deserve a certain amount of respect for completing a work of art but this is just bad.
Yes. the story was captivating and kept my interest throughout.
Obviously Tony is the protagonist but I thought his dad was interesting as well.
Digging in the orange grove, just so well written.
Not necessarily. The letters to/from the killers were good places to stop and reflect.
I loved Earley's book
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I was worried about the quality of the author's narration but was pleasantly surprised.
The author as narrator manages to turn an interesting book into a rather dull-sounding lecture.
It would only have taken a professional narrator to turn this into a 5 star rating. In its present state I'd give it a marginal "recommend" rating.
