I found the narration of this book to put me to sleep!! I was expecting the Italian version of French Canadian "Gamache" however, this was not to be and I did not finish this book as I forcing myself to continue to listen!!
I enjoyed the first book with Dewey Andreas and will listen to another. The story was well written but lost a star for the length. I feel this story could have been shortened from it's 16 hours as it sometimes felt that it was never going to end!
The book sounded very interesting and worth the money. Unfortunately, I could not finish the first chapter. I found myself cringing when the narrator was speaking in the voice of a young girl.
Loved this book although I hesitated before buying it. I wasn't sure if I would like it, didn't think it was truly in the SK genre...boy was I ever wrong!! This book has it all...murder, love, suspense, and I even picked up some "carny" language along the way, which might come in handy some day. (you never know). The only small disappointment for me was the narrator. Michael Kelly certainly did tell the story well although I thought he was not emotional enough so I had to drop to four stars.
I am a big fan of the "Inspector Gamache" Three Pines mysteries. I found the narration to be as fine as ever, however I had difficulty keeping the characters of the monks separate and I gave up trying to remember which monk was which and that ultimately spoiled this book for me! Stay with Three Pines!!
If I was stranded on Mars I would want "The Martian" to be with me! He is extremely creative, upbeat and works miracles! I enjoyed learning all about the scientific nature of space and the reasons behind them. I wanted to return to his classroom as he explained what he was doing and why he was doing it, not to mention he told his story with a terrific sense of humor...what more could a girl want?
Tom Wood does it again!!! I have to buy and download the next book in this series TODAY! I enjoyed this book even more than the second in the series!! Many twists and turns and surprises...if you love Victor "The Game" will cement your relationship!
I could not stop listening...that hasn't happened in awhile!
This book is a stand alone for me and I rushed back to the Audible to search for more books written by Reginald Hill and narrated by Jonathon Keeble!!
His ability to take on all the voices and you forget that you are listening to the same person.
Don't deny yourself of a book that has it all...intrigue, suspense and a twist around every corner!!
I loved both the print and audio versions of Odd and would gladly read them all again; however the narration by David Aaron Baker was exactly what I imagined Odd Thomas to sound like. It was like listening to an old friend. I actually got my husband hooked on Odd so of course I had to download the next in the series Forever Odd. I now prefer to listen to David as Odd rather than read it myself.
The relationship between Odd and Stormy with their carnival fortune tellers card is one of undying love and when it says that they will be together forever I believe it!
I love Terrible Chester (the cat) and his master who thankfully encourages Odd to write down his story in this series of journals. He is certainly a most memorable character (not the cat) and quite a literary force to inspire Odd to so believably narrate his life story. The characters are so believable and real that it feel as if I too live in Pico Mundo and could wave to any and all who passed my way!
My daughter and I both had an extreme reaction to the ending of this book...she cannot pick up another Odd book but I on the other hand believe the fortune teller!
Do yourself a big favour and read Odd Thomas and you will be sent into the world of love, evil, and everything else in between!
I love the characters Nathan and Harvey and they are a great team! The action is non stop and there are lots of twists and turns that you do not expect which I like, nothing predictable in this book!
Never a dull moment and of course they always get the job done! The relationship between Nathan and his father was very touching and real. Nathan and Harvey were like an old married couple (which I loved) and could finish each others sentences...this to me is the true symbol of this working relationship which encompasses so much trust and strength.
One of the reasons that I gave this author a first try was because of Dick Hill. I love his narration of the Jack Reacher series and I knew I would enjoy listening to him with a new story and I am certainly glad I did! I will start looking for more books by Andrew Peterson.
I almost had tears during the last exchange between Nathan and his father. Nathan reaching out to his father and his father giving back what a son needs from his father.
