I feel like Oprah didn't really sell it as a narrator. Maybe if somebody with a younger vocie narrated, it might be better.
Her time with Clair is very beautiful.
It's very sad. I read in one of the reviews that somebody actually gave this book only one star because it was sad. What an idiot! So, if you're reading this, and you're the Stewart Smalley, then I am sure there are better choices for you... but anyone out there who doesn't mind a story of the harsh reality of the foster care system, then this is a must read.
People who give bad ratings to books because of their own personal preferences are morons.
Great story about the secret lives of people with special powers, and the creatures that lurk in the night to prey on them. The story itself is violent and twisted, but the level of care that King takes in creating these elaborate lifelike monsters with their human weaknesses, and flawed antiheroes tortured by their pasts. This book is good for anyone with the stomach for a good horror novel, for all the wimps out there, keep moving.
Such a heartfelt story about a boy who just wants to find a place in the world. The characters were so well created and beautifully done. Boris is my favorite, he is so eccentric and you find yourself loving him even with his flaws. The story itself is slow, but a good one, but I am a big fan of character development done well and Donna Tartt really pulls it off well in this book.
Yes, absolutely, and I have. This type of book is the exact reason why audio-books are huge now, and the performance aspect is definitely worth recommending to people.
Told as an audio-book, it was a lot like Dracula, where each character read their own short stories and is told from their point of view. But the book itself, not sure, it was very good though.
The Battle of Yonkers, it was told so well that I really felt like I was there.
I forget the character's name, but the woman who is dropped from the helicopter and is communicating with another woman on her walkie talkie... then the book leaves it open as to if it was a hallucination or not. Really great story telling.
Maybe this advice works for some people but it's a bit too hippie-logic for me
Her voice is painful. I feel like she would be great for a meditation or yoga sound track but I'm listening to a book that is several hours long. No need to speak that slow
meh. Maybe... it's not terrible advice but it's not that practical either. Maybe it would be good for people with bad attitudes or that have depression but for advice on how to actually change your life (not just your mood), it isn't that helpful
This book was not stuffed with weird manipulative advice and data. It is just a great compilation of stories about how famous world leaders and average Joes used friendliness and confidence to get ahead of the competition
He has a very "classic" speaking voice. It can be a bit dry at times, but it's like taking advice from an old wise professor
How could you not love this woman? She's super smart, she's sassy, and she's hilarious. This book was very enjoyable. She tells funny stories about her life and gives advice for women (people in general) that would like to get into media and entertainment... actually, she gives great career advice in general.
Best line “Some people say, “Never let them see you cry.” I say, if you’re so mad you could just cry, then cry. It terrifies everyone.”
She's very expressive!
Yea. And I probably should. I wish Audible listed chapter names. This book should be required reading for all women who are about to graduate from college... I would also recommend for any women who have kids and have questions about juggling being a mom and a professional. Great book all around.
Women Don't Ask by Linda Babcock. Not as good as Lean In... seams almost a little too over the top but still good!
Great speaking voice... not boring or slow.
It will fix your life and attitude about work, life, career, and family
I don't usually like fiction, but this is great! Very different from the movie too. Mina was lame in the movie, she's great in the book
The narrators really do a great job!
It's pretty dark, not scary, but eerie. It's really good. Definitely worth the 20 hours.
