Thank you for writing this book... It proves to me that for some golfing is an experience in both the sport and the social aspects of the event. The author does an outstanding job explaning how golf (or any sport for that matter) can and will engulf your life and even pull in your loved members of your family and social network similar to a 'black hole'. Definitely a good listen for those who need either a push to golf (again) or a reason to stare.
The narrator did an good job of keeping the characters voices in sync. He made it a great listening experience.
All of the characters were great, but Frank would be the favorite, followed my Ma. His character caused you to suspect him in some way at times, then other time I felt empathy for Frank. Other time to just simple hate him for what he was doing & asking.
Overall a good to great voice for the characters. I like how he had Ma's voice such that you felt her presence.
Definitely! I would pull up after a long commute and sit in the driveway just to get to a place to break for the night.
All three books are very good. Tana writing is a refreshing change to the American writer, her characters are unique, clever, and full of personality. The narrators in all the books make the listening and experience. Tana writes with such detail you are left with a vivid image of each scene. I like how Tana takes a secondary character from each book to only bring this person to the forefront in the next book.
Well, this is definitely a 'kids' book, but a very good listen even for a mature person. I am an avid Grisham listener and this book proved a nice break. Being a grandfatther, I will be reading this book to my grandsons. The story provides a good sense of strive for what you want, be honest, think things through, help others, and most of all an education of the justicial system, abeit from a simpler approach, but very well put. Recommended for young readers.
This is the first novel I have heard by Child and I am hooked. This book was so well written I could not wait for the next days's commute and the narrator was excellent. The characters were well defined and the plot was rich. It was very nice to listen to a book where the main characters DID NOT have an intimate relationship or any other characters. Good science fiction, though some of the science was a bit in error. I highly recommend this read.
First of all the narrator makes this book so much more enjoyable. The plot was great, but when read with such emotional and emphasis it makes a great book an outstanding book.
As always, John produced another winner.
This is a must listen to book.
