When a series has a good narrator, it is just not wise to change. The narrator for the first two books was just GREAT. I felt he was Michael Vey, his voice was just perfect, he struck the right note—youth coming of age. Very, very, very disappointed in the new narrator. While he has good alternate voices, his main delivery is flat and uninteresting. The book is worth reading, but the narration rather spoiled it for me.
Michael Vey, because he is has a good character.
The first narrator who read books one and two.
A positive likeable story. I have read only one other Dean Koontz book, The Watchers, and it was both marvelous at times, and sunk to the depths of disgusting at other times. In that book, I ended up skipping over the perverted parts because the good parts were so engagingly excellent. I could not find enough good in Lightning, so I just quit well before the finish.
The narration was better on this 4th installment than it was on the 3rd, but it does not beat Fred B. in the first two books. Also this book, while I found it worthwhile to read, just does not draw me in with a creative imaginative story as the first of the series did. Yet it is refreshing and entirely enjoyable to read a book where positive principles are woven throughout.
I'm not sure. I like more action. Something that captures your interest and keeps feeding it.
Listening to the lack of personal responsibility in the character Flip and that Sandra put up with it was grating on me.
Interesting tid-bits about fads.
I will listen again. The book was hugely entertaining. I like a little romance in the books I read, it makes the characters more engaging and likable.
Great narration. I don't think I have heard her before, but I hope to again.
The interactions between the characters in the last scenes of the book.
Absolutely I will listen again.
Admiral Fluckey who had the guts and instincts to plunge ahead with his ideas for making submarine warfare more effective. War is horrible, but rescuing POWs and defending one's country is not!
No, not that I recollect.
Yes, but I did not. I wanted to draw out the tale, return to it again and again, knowing that it would whisk me away to another place and time whenever I had an opportunity to go on reading—that is, listening.
The story flowed and really kept my interest. Some of Philippa Gregory's books were a little unsatisfying to me because I did not feel they proceeded to a tidy ending. The characters in this book were very engaging, I enjoyed the historical fiction--although it seemed as if the attitudes of the queens may have been at least partly accurate--it allowed another viewpoint on the old Elizabeth vs. her sister Mary which is usually presented one-sided. Hanna was especially appealing, because she was portrayed as looking for the best in others. This book had a lovely ending.
Not another Dana Stabenow book. The action, for the most part, was just bland. But the narration by Marguerite Gavin was really excellent.
The narration was great, but as far as the story goes, this book deserves a pass.
Yes, I will listen again and again. The multiple voices carried this story along to its end in a most interesting and entertaining manner. I enjoyed hearing all the many phrases, so used down the centuries that almost all of us are well familiar with them.
I did listen to it in one sitting.
Not at this point.
The story began so dismally I did not want to read it in its entirety.
I have not finished the book, not sure if I will spend the time because there are some good books in my Library waiting for me. In my opinion, the author does not have strong writing skills, but his first book was exciting enough to forgive and forget the writing style. This book just does not deliver the excitement, but it might near the end...yet I am asking myself is slogging through the main body worth it?. I will definitely try the next installment, hoping for better.
