exciting, surprising, unexpected
The Percy Jackson books, and the Artimis Fowl book are similar in the fact that they are both mystery books aimed at pre-teens. Both are great books that more students should read and great examples of written literacy.
He needs to work on differencing between the characters. Develop more voices. His reading is smooth - just not attention grabbing.
Not particularly, due to the reader, but the story line is good.
I work in the south - so I could "hear" some of my friends saying some of the exact things these ladies were saying and doing. I LOL so many times. :)
I loved the friendship bonding time. Girlfriends are like that and Virginia Brown hit it right on the head.
For the most part yes.
Yes and no. Audible books are my gift to myself for my long drives home. If I listen to them when I'm not driving, I 1- get nothing done at home 2 - have nothing to "read" on my drives 3 - have to buy more books. I finished this one while I was making cards :)
I felt the role of the men in the story to be a little weak - I would be in soooo much trouble if I pulled some of those stunts - I also respect my husbands enough to listen to his requests.
I love murder mysteries and I enjoy scrapbooking and card making. So, to find a book that combined both was a bonus. There was humor and the writing was realistic. I laughed outloud while I was reading it.
While the protagonist thought she knew who the murderer was, proving it was something else. The author did a good job putting twists in that made me want to keep reading.
Her reading was good. She was consistent with the voices, but I would have liked a little more differentiation between some of the characters.
Enjoyed the book so much, I am looking at the series.
I can't compare the two, I only have the audio version.
Eragon learning about his parents.
I've only heard Doyle's performances in the Eragon series, but I thought this book was his best performance ever!
All is fair in love and war.
I loved the growth and depth of the characters. The double, sometimes triple story line was well written and easy to follow. The number of characters is amazing
I came to appreciate Roain more in this story. He begins as a simple young man looking for a job and family, and becomes the leader of his community, making the difficult decisions that leaders have to. It's serves as a reminder of the difficult decisions all of us have to make.
Sopheria - her gruff female dragon voice has to be difficult and then to show playfulness, anger, concern, and shame - outstanding job!
I love the twist at the end of the story. I can't w a it to begin listening to Resingr.
The narration and writing make Eragon an outstanding listen. The details in the story show depth, insight, and planning.The narrator's voices are excellent (although it did take me awhile to adjust to such a masculine female Dragon voice!)
Eragon and Sopheria of course. Eragon is a wonderfully typical young man and Sopheria is a wise playful kitten.
His voice for all the different characters was excellent. Listening allows me to spend more time creating each scene in my head, with more detail, than just reading does.
An enchanting tale of dwarfs, dragons, elves and men.
I would listen to this story again - I would listen to the trilogy again. I've already started. I love the pictures of Ireland that they paint and it's folklore. I want to visit the places mentioned in the book. I want to sit in the new music hall and listen to the music.
The picture painted by the description of how the new Music Hall will blend with the old Tavern. It made me want to visit there.
I've only heard her in this series, but she did an excellent job.
Yes, I didnt want to stop listening, but if I don't stop listening when I'm driving, I run out of storoes to listen to. For the second read, I listened while I sewed! :)
Only have audio (I travel alot - drive) so really can't say. Although, I do enjoy listening to the characters.
The realness. I found myself laughing out loud occasion - which is pretty funny when you're listening in public.
The ghost looking for the boys. She honest sorrow and how the Mom realizes what's wrong.
southern ghost story
I was surprised by the wordiness of this book. It's not that she's giving too much detail, it's just wordy. I would not reccommend this book.
I would use more interaction between the characters instead of using so many words.
I different reader. Better separatation of the voices. Sometimes it's hard to tell which character is speaking. This male struggles with the main female character. Not good.
I love the intertwining of the relationships with the fates.
I love the Irish family. The personalities of the individual members were realistic of what real family relationships are.
This was the first time I've listening to Bernadette Quigley and I thought she did a wonderful job handling all the different characters. I always knew who was speaking.
I didn't listen to this in one sitting, but I did extend my listening by an hour twice. My audible account is my luxury because I travel for work and these books help pass the time.
Another hit for Nora Roberts - well done!
Since I listen to unabridged versions, I consider it the same - but the character voices are provided for me.
Holly and the Captain in the cave.
He does a nice job with all the character voices and portraying their feelings.
Holly's lose of her mentor.
