I would definately recommend this book to a few of my friend. I do not typically read or listen to these short romance books. I chose this book because I wanted a quick read. I was drawn into the performance. The narrator's voice drew me in with the serious, believable honey smooth tone.
I love the narrator.
Pillars of the Earth. Well written like that book.
Jamie... Of course. But I love the confusion that arises when Claire slips and uses modern cuss words.
Yes. Could na put it down you can.
Someone keeps coughing in the background. Like in the other room from the narrator. A disgusting noise. It doesn't happen all the time but often enough to be a distraction.
I would not purchase another book from this author.
The narrator was talented. It is not her fault that the story was so bad.
No, not at all.
This is the worst, unrealistic plot I have ever heard of. I cannot believe I made it through the whole thing.
Wonderful love story.
Fair to compare this book to other romance books of this type. Story is changed up a bit but alas is typical.
I loved the way she could switch accents with fluid transition.
This book is not film worthy.
It is a book that I would read again.
I think the fact that it is Bill Bryson who is narrating his own book makes this book worth the time and money. I LOVE this book. A story subject that should be absolutely boring is actually full of humor. This book is also rich with historical facts and present day issues.
I LOVED the switching of voices with the characters. This is a believable tale rich wioth description... never gets boring as each chapter is a new performer. What a great book... to read, watch and even listen to.
Yes, I admit this was a bold story line and the housewives took it and ran... I enjoyed reading this book at the same time as my girlfriends because the gossip factor alone was worth it. But, the book's main character is weak and her pouting was aweful... dragged out in the character developent. This narration was terrible... the narrator emphasized the pouting way to much. When the girls and I tried to listen to this book we were so completely turned off... so much for using the other books in the series during out knitting circle... we abandoned the first one after chaper 5... the performance was that bad.
I LOVE this book and story. I was excited to see Anne Hathoway performing the narration... I could only get half-way through this book. She was terrible... just terrible. Not worth the time.
No way... NEVER again.
I am not sure I would have been able to follow the print version. I would have definately hung myself up in the time line of events. With the audio version I was able to concentrate of the visual description of events and the story. Well written and well read.
I had a hard time putting this one down.
The twisted plot is refreshing. A very tallented author.
If you want a book for simple background noise then this is it. If you want brain stimulation then I would pass on this on. The plot has been there before... and stories of spoiled stars and starletts are so yesterday.
The narration was not good. This was a waste of money. This book is best left to be a picture book.
