I enjoyed this continuation of the story. The writer made the characters real to me, and I could relate to them in the environment they were in. I was taken on the journey with them.
I got so bored with the Susanah/Mia situation. In the first place I could not imagine the one person/two person transition. And it just went on, and on, and on. I was really glad when this book ended.
Well, I don't especially care for George Guidall, I was spoiled by Frank Muller, but Mr. Guidall did an OK job. I guess he is growing on me.
The book sparked boredom in me. Let's get on with the story, OK?
I really enjoyed the first few books, but maybe this series is just a little too long for me. I'm listening to the last book now, so it won't be long. One thing I really like about Stephen King is his character development, and their interaction with each other. One of my favorites was Duma Key.
Yes, I would recommend this title to a friend, but only for them to learn the background for the books that follow in the series. That was a review that I read, and I agree. I had trouble making it through this book. But I have enjoyed previous Stephen King books so much that I gave it a chance. Dark Tower I was not that great. But the series gets better. I don't really care for George Guidall reading, but I really like Frank Muller, who does The Dark Tower II, II, and IV.
I hoped for the story to get better.
I guess he did OK, but I don't really care for George Guidall. The first book that I heard him read, Everyman, I did not like. He became that character for me. Whenever I hear him, I think of that character.
Yes, because it was short, and gave me the background for the stories (books) that followed.
It was naturally a little slow with getting to know the characters, most of them a little unusual. But you got to know the off beat ones and to understand them some what. I never knew what was going to happen next, or who the good and bad guys were, for a while. But I got to know them all pretty well by the end. There were some very nasty individuals, and some really good ones. The story grabbed me and made me want to know more.
The two super heros were made sort of believable by their circumstances. But it was so pleasurable when the bad guys got their just rewards that I wanted to believe in them. It was an entertaining story.
I thought this story was far too crude, very unbelievable, but it was mildly entertaining.
I was taken to a different time and place, but the author made the setting believable and filled with real people. The time and place were hard, but people did what they needed to do to survive. I thought there was good character development and they fit right in to the environment. I enjoyed the adventure.
I read the reviews here, and this sounded like a pretty good story. But be warned, this is a chick book. It drips with estrogen. Listen to the preview and you will know what the first half of the book is like. All of the characters whine so much about how unfair their lives are, feel so sorry for themselves, and linger so much on what people think of them. It was a relief to me when the young woman was murdered, because it stopped her whining. I have enjoyed other books by female authors and that has never been a consideration before, but after this book I will be cautious, and will want to see some male reviews.
