Yes! The story was very suspenseful -- and different from what I expected. The narration was fantastic....definitely enhanced the book!
The Hot Zone by Richard Preston....with an added touch of The Walking Dead (TV Series). It was very suspenseful and had the medical research components (even though I'm comparing non-fiction to fiction)
I loved her voice. She did a nice job reading it, but honestly...it's just a pleasant voice.
No, but it's suspenseful.
This was branching out for me...not my normal genre. It was great!
Maybe not better, but every bit as good. I thought the narrator did a fantastic job.
So many things! The author took a serious topic and educated me without ever making it feel like a lecture -- in fact, much of the book was very funny! She is so down-to-earth. After several of her stories (especially the parenting ones) I found myself thinking, "That would sooo happen to me."
I didn't have a favorite scene, but I loved the overall tone of the book. Her parenting stories were my favorites. I also really loved her dedication to (and enthusiasm for) the research her specialist was doing....sometimes we forget what an important role that plays in our healthcare advances.
Never judge a book by its cover. :) I almost didn't start this one because I thought it might be too serious a book for a summer vacation. I was so wrong. I just loved it!
The narrator's accents were painful. The worst Hispanic accent I think I've heard from an audio book.
It was as I predicted, but satisfying.
The back-and-forth between Jake and Peyton when they meet up at the grocery store seemed to go on FOREVER. Also, these police officers were just too incompetent to be believable. I almost gave up on the book in the early chapters, but it did improve.
I recommend reading it instead of listening.
Great story. I love to be a little creeped out without the book being so scary or graphic that I can't get to sleep at night.
Probably, but I didn't love what he did with his voice for Thelma and Ruth. Very good at voicing suspense....not the best voice for imitating teenage girls.
