This is such a beautiful and tragic story bringing light to a part of US history that is not that often talked about.
This feels like a great start to a great series. The main character is very likeable right away and the story sucked me in. This is a very easy breezy read with a nice twist... Perfect for summer reading!
This story was written in the 50s and feels timeless and modern still. It keeps the reader thinking and engaged the whole time, trying to figure it out along with the main character.
This is a solid story and set of characters with a beautiful Alaskan backdrop. Still, I just wasn't able to connect with the lead character and it didn't leave me wanting to read more...
This is my first Christopher Moore novel and it was fun.... in a crude sort of way. If you mind bad language, you shouldn't pick this book up....
I also enjoyed very much the performance of the narrator! It would not have been this much fun to read it myself...
This book has a great idea, but for my taste, it's poorly executed.
Firstly, I think it needs editing for length... There is no need for this book to be 33hrs, there is just not enough substance.
Secondly, there is too much graphic violence in this book. I personally avoid graphic violence in movies and books and some of the scenes made me feel sick to my stomach, so I ended up deleting it from my device about half way through.
Beyond hearing Piper Kerman's own story, it also gives insight to every day life in a low security prison and the people that she encounters in this time. On top of that, the author supplemented the story with statistics and facts about the prison system in general.
The performance of Cassandra Campbell really brings this story alive.
This is the second book in the series and I listened to the first story as well. I really enjoy the main character and really enjoy the series so far. This is very light and breezy reading with good main characters. Compared to the first book, the story was just a little too fabricated for me. Nevertheless, I already have the 3rd book downloaded.
In the first chapters I thought that I will be hating this book.
But as the main character opened up a little more to his world around him, I was pulled in more and more.... In the end, the book was over way too quick!
This is a nice quick read with a fast and interesting story line.
I just didn't care for the ending all the much... All the loose ends were tied up, but it felt a little chopped off for me.
Nevertheless, I think I will pick up the next book in the series, just to see where the character develops to.
