Beautifully woven story with characters that I missed long after I finished reading.
A grown up version of Enid Blyton books ...you want to seat down by the fire with a hot cup of coffee laced with brandy.
No...I don't usually pay attention to the names of the readers
Brian...he would spill the beans and it would be funny.
Yes. I am a fan of both.
It is too close to my generation and I am a modern history buff. I couldn't help noticing every single inaccurate historical reference. And the cliches were irritating...I disliked the whole Kennedy portrayal.
This is not John Lee's gendre in my opinion. His adoption of an old southern baptist preacher's voice for a young African American Harvard grad from Washington DC demonstrated his lack of cultural reference.
The story is disjointed and very uninspiring. I know it is about Auri and not about Kvoth but did the writer have to stray so far of?
Maybe- it depends if he returns to his original style. I am very disappointed. I bought the book six weeks in advance. I think Patrick Rothfuss has become complacent and is taking his fans a little for granted. Mistake. There are tons of other books out there and other more imaginative syfy writers. Just saying.
The narrator did a good job. The book is a snooze fest.
Don't buy it.
4 out of 5 and that is only because I am not a Kate Reading fan. Sorry. Otherwise, I just couldn't stop listening.
Complex characters who evolved and grew from the first book.
I find Kate Reading's work really grating and sometimes unconvincing...especially when she plays younger female characters. She unintentionally makes them sound annoying and unlikeable.
I could smell the spices of the bazzar, taste the exotic food, hear the voices and songs of the middle east. It awakened memories of my mother reading me the Arabian Nights at bed time. Lovely.
The confrontation between niece and uncle after she forged a letter using his seal. What did she think was going to happen? And her mother, having to face what I am sure was possibly her worst nightmare - living on the streets without her brother-in-law's protection.
Her beautify husky voice and rich accent - it could have been Sheherazade herself telling the stories - weaving her own beautiful carpet.
Probably not. I never really listen to any book twice. I am always looking forward to my next read.
Winds of War of course
Yes...he is very good.
Why would I want to change the title?
I am sure this book in paperback would be over 1000 page read and it is worth it. I enjoy my commute every day and I am almost sorry when I reach my destination…I am so caught in the saga. I first listened to Winds of War and I was hooked. I recommend listening to Winds of War first. Books are not written like this anymore. So thorough, so detailed, full of heroism, suffering, perseverance, faithfulness, unfaithfulness, cruelty and heroism etc. I love it!
Pretty good story, easy listen.
Oliver Stone...cool cat. Reminded me of a young Clint Eastwood character in an older body.
The story felt incomplete - it would have been nice to know what happened between Annabelle and the Atlantic City mobster at that final confrontation. Did she and stone live together? Etc, etc...
Yes - strong, relateable story line.
Alex Berenson demonstrated knowledge of the politican climate of the time and also described the cultures clearly and beautifully.
I think this might be the first time, I am not sure. But I liked it.
The language was old fashioned and hard to follow...
Used a simple straight forward narrative - thou this thou that was so annoying
The actual scenes were not bad but the language was cumbersome.
I don't care
I don't like this genre. I listened to this book because of the hype and my book club.
I don't know...and I don't care
Delete the whole book
