One of the top books.
I liked the beautifully constructed sentences. You can't listen to this book and not appreciate the vivid imagery and the how well it is written.
I chose this book because I like John C. Reilly. I loved it from the beginning because he did a great job with the voices and was one of the best narrators I've heard. By the end I was so captivated in the story and the characters that I almost forgot who was narrating. Excellent job!
The character narrating the book is Chief Brompton and thought he was most memorable because of how much he changes from beginning to end.
I was very much looking forward to the last book in the trilogy. I did not like the split narration because it was a change in how the other two books were structured. A lot of the story line seemed rushed and not thought out. There were gaping holes in the logic of what happened. I finished it because I wanted to know how it ended, but was incredibly disappointed, especially considering how great the first two books were.
Bel Canto was wonderfully descriptive and captivating. Prachett takes a horrific and turns it into a romantic, unforgettable story.
I enjoyed this book because I love the Pixar movies. It was neat to hear about the history of the company and the process behind the movies made me want to watch them all again.
I'm not a huge fan of the movie but wanted to experience the book. Anne Hathaway made it well worth the listen. She is pure joy.
