I will count this as one of my favourite Dick
Francis books. It has everything you expect from him; humour, crime, a hint of romance, a history on rail travel, and all done in an extremely entertaining way. His research is extensive, so I trust everything he writes in relation to the racing industry in Canada, the travel industry, and Canadian Rail. Bravo Mr. Francis.
I found this book so addictive, couldn't stop listening. Amazing insight into a wonderful star, she certainly wasn't who I thought she was. The narration was fabulous. Lucy was a mixture of an inconsiderate person and a wonderfully kind person. I would recommend this book to anyone who remembers Lucy and Ricky Ricardo.
I am very sorry to criticise such a wonderful star but her narrating is just woeful. It sounds like she has had a stroke; her pauses are all in the wrong place. She pauses like there's a full stop and then she continues on with that sentence. Pretty poor. I haven't been able to finish the book it's that bad.
The narration of this book was very disappointing. The narrator's punctuation was all over the place; she would pause and you would think you were starting another sentence and then she would continue with the line she had just paused from. Extremely disjointed and very difficult to listen to.
I cannot recommend this book at all.
What a way to listen to an autobiography - told by the author himself. And when the author is brilliant comedian Billy Crystal, I was hooked from the first few words. I actually laughed out loud at some of the narrative, fortunately I was listening at home.
Billy, I have always loved your work; now I know a bit about behind the scenes I admire you even more.
I loved this book, couldn't wait to get back to it every time I got in the car; I discovered things about the South and the North that I had never considered before as being relevant; that is, friends who have shared a lifetime of experiences together at West Point, families growing up, sharing holidays together, suddenly confronted with this huge difference in morality. The southerners can't see the problem and want the north to just butt out and mind their own business, the northerners are outraged by the human misery. I found the narration perfect, the inflections in all the right places. I couldn't wait to get to the end to see what happened to their families.
This is a great last novel for Bryce Courtney, an epic story of Australiana from the early 20th century. I really loved this book, I found the narrator to be very entertaining and extremely good..
I feel I wasted my credit on this one; I went off other recommendations but I found it very slow; I couldn't stick with it and jumped to the end just to see what happened.
Another great Michael Connelly story, gets you in at the start and never lets go.
This is an absolutely marvellous read; what an epic journey full of sadness and heroism.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book; having just seen the movie I could really visualise the characters.
