this is a
all the characters were great
his ability to assume distinct and entertaining verbal identities is unparallelled
fascinating characters, great story
this time Burke goes WAY over board with the metaphors and verbal allusions. i read and listen to almost every thing he writes but this is entirely too cumbersome. i often found myself saying "all right all ready, get to the point ! ". still well worth the price and Will Patton is out standing.
yes, but with reservations. this is an interesting story but not very polished. i liked it as a tail of a modern cowboy lawman and enjoyed listening but i would not go out on a limb to recommend it.
Dick Francis tells a great story and they are all different. there is nothing horrible in a Francis book, no cringe making imagery to bum you out. Just a clever well written story.
i liked them all. always a collection of colorful, eccentric, and unusual people made very true to life.
he gets the story.
lots of laughs at the foibles and absurdities.
if you like Dick Francis you will like this book. if you want an interesting light mystery with clever dialogue and believable characters who are very human you will like this one. if you want dark, violent, twisted emotions and a break neck plot that makes your heat race don't get this book.
the advantage of audio is the ability to listen when i could not read, ie in the car. the advantage of reading is making sure you get the text, the ability to re-read. i enjoy both. however if the reader is really good i look forward to listening.
yes. story is tight and the reader is great.
he knows the story and delivers it
every thing Connelly, James Lee Burke or John Sanford writes is worth reading or listening too. and all of their readers are excellent. i can't wait for each new book and have pretty much listened to and or read them all.
the story was very cumbersome. i have read and listened to many of Wilbur Smith's books and generally liked all the rest but i eventually quite listening which i have only done with one other book and i have listened to.
no. the genre is fine and many of Smiths other books are good.
this was just cumbersome writing. an example of word and metaphor over kill.
I've said enough.
yes. it is a story worth telling, told very well.
war and piece. both Tolstoy with similar themes and both artfully told.
verbal sense of emotion. i would also recommend reading this book because you will want to re-read and reflect on the message.
a story about what is really important in life, and what is not. and how we often cant tell which is which until its too late.
just listen and let it flow. the different Russian character names are easier to follow than War and Piece, which i kept rewinding in the beginning, but it is still better to just let the book
fast interesting real
really a stand alone book
great story, makes you want to cheer
i was surprised by how much i liked the story and the reader was great
This is NOT a mystery thriller. Although the writing technique is good the story is a cheesy romance novel, or at least what I would expect one to be if I wanted to read one which I did not. If you like this style it is great but I quit listening which I almost never do because I am so cheap with my credits. I like histories, thrillers if they have some realism, and mysteries. The category and description of this book sounded great and it could have been a good story but it is written like a soap opera and the only thing that is missing is a guy named Fabio and some butter. Unfortunately the narration is in keeping with the style of the book, breathless women and for the men, female voices talking in fake deep baritones.
What ever this guy writes is great.
