Great performance by the narrator. I'd listen to anything he reads after hearing this one. The story was great if you are a Star Wars fan which I am. A couple of points where things were a bit obvious or left hanging but it's Star Wars so we aren't expecting to change the world except through ticket sales. It was entertaining and that's what I was after. If you are after the same thing and you enjoy the series pick it up.
My only other Steven King experience was The Shining. I'm not usually into thrillers such as The Shining even though it was a great book. As a result I've always avoided Steven King's books. I tried The Green Mile and found it to be amazing. Starts a little slow but gets better and better as it wraps up in a a great ending. A great reminder that life is amazing and fragile and will help you appreciate the value of those you care about. The performance is a true compliment to a great book.
I was so grateful for so much of what Ayn Rand wrote in this book. It was a perfect pairing with The Fountainhead. The writing is amazing, the characters engaging, and the narration is great. The recording was bad and if you are a new listener then you might try the Scott Brick version. The Hurt version was great though and I was able to get past the bad audio after only an hour. I can absolutely understand why this book has sold more copies than the Bible. I'll probably try to get a hard copy now to keep in my library and highlight great passages. Don't think about it just listen to it.
This is easily the best audiobook I've heard. The performances are perfect and the story is great. It easily jumped into my all time favorites list for a book and the audiobook was perfect. I enjoyed the movie even though not typically a fan of most "chick flicks". The audiobook is better.
Entertaining. The narrator does a descent job. The story is a bit predictable and never became quiet as action packed as I was expecting but I was still entertained and it kept me wanting to listen. Overall I'd go with better than average. I picked it up so I could see where Harry Bosch started and to learn more about that character it was great.
This book started off with a lot of interest and I thought it would dive deeply into Lincoln's assassination. Turned out to be more a monolog of the civil war and was interesting but unexpected. In the end what I was intrigued to learn about never materialized and the book ended as somewhat of a let down. It might have been a bit more entertaining had a professional narrator been involved.
Good entertaining book. Descent adventure with history and myth mixed into treasure hunting. If you're just looking for something fun it's worthwhile.
