I could not lay it down.
The 1st page to the last, the book holds the reader's attention. The listener is captured by their own imagination. I cannot pick a favorite moment with out giving the best away.
The narrator, Anne Twomey, was really very creative with her voice. I had not heard her before. She is quite good.
It made me smile inside myself. I was delighted with the book.
I have read other books by Lois Lowery. I enjoyed each one and would reread each one.
The beginning to the end was really good. Jenna is amazing. The 2 characters she chooses to help her are perfect. I learned so much about elephants and even that was so right. Read this one. It is worth it.
The details leads you to think it is about some property and all the family. BUT it is really about a man who has 2 daughters and his wife has been in an accident. There is a smaller character who is like a fly in the ointment to the man.. The end brought it all back full circle. I would tell some one else about this book, with a little disclaimer about it. It does have the property coursing through it.
The story went along fine until about an hour to the end. The narrator, Catherine Taber, was just flat. No emotion, even when one of the characters took her up in a small plane and let her fly it. She was just flat. She read well. The story only went so far and then it too went flat. I was overall disappointed. I have only been an audible listener for about 2 years and this is my 1st review of this sort.
This book held my attention well. There are human struggles that we all go through. I found wisdom in the honesty on the pages. .
So good. I loved every minute of this one and It would not be the same without getting to listen. I was right there. Katherine Kellgren was just excellent. I was so caught up in the story, L. A. Meyer is a great story teller. I would lover to listen to this one again.
Book #1 to #8, how many hours I have spent with Jamie and Claire. Davina Porter reads such life into every character. I couldn't put them down and I didn't want it to end. Each of the 8 books I have read could stand alone, but there will be much you miss. Start at the beginning and let Davina Porter create living beings into the story. I might just have to go back and read every one again. I have only read 1 other book that made me want to read it again and I did read it the 2nd time.
Claire and Jamie have been through so many things. War, abuse, loss and they love each other with an enduring love. Their story, their encounters, their difficult journey, I simply cannot get enough of them. I think the narration by Davina Porter is excellent. I just finished this one and the 4th one already downloaded. I have hours in these books and I have been involved in their path. Diana Gabaldon makes the characters so alive. I am not able to put them down.
Claire falls through time. Circumstances bring Jamie into her life. There are all sorts of events that happen to them as they fall in love. There are some steamy love scenes and some language. The story is told in such a great and moving way. I simply couldn't put it down.
I am so pleased to report that this one is so much better then the previous one. It reads like Mercedes Lackey's Five Hundred Kingdoms series. The characters are developed stronger and come into their own in a more mature way. The dots come together in an intriguing, maybe spell binding path. I liked it and I think you will too.
The story was great. Erik Bergmann, the reader was perfect. I was captured by the story almost immediately. The characters were well assembled. The only thing I didn't like was the language, but this story was a good one. The relationship between Jason Stafford and The Kid developed nicely. I would recommend this one and I might read this one again
