Definitely left me wanting more but still wrapped up the story. Very interesting and as someone described it as "Koontz-lite".
A bit shocked and wanted a sequel or for it to continue!
Performance was good. Liked... nothing I could pinpoint of disliking!
Yes! I feel they could expand on the story... it's never over till the fat lady sings right?
I enjoyed this book more than Gillian Flynn's Gone Girl (which I enjoyed a lot!) but Dark Places definitely had an entirely different vibe! It was surprising and kept me interested. My mind was reeling with "whodunnit" and the details are impressive.
I started listening to this book with NO expectations. If I had to compare to any books I've read/listened to, I'd have to say that this was BETTER than Gone Girl.
Extremely well performed by Angela Dawe and the story left me fearful, anxious, crying, and on the edge of my seat. Crazy ride! Great story. Didn't want it to end!
There are books that come along and REALLY speak to your soul... This is one!
I've repeatedly complained/discussed the demise of our society; blaming the young (younger then me of course), technology, Northern California, Southern California, the valley, Government... Whatever and whomever I could. After listening to this book it put a lot of things in perspective. It provided some ah-ha moments and made me literally laugh out loud! It was so nice to hear I was not wading in a pool of a mannerless world. It even helped me cope a bit and provided a new catchphrase "You probably aren't aware of this but ..." Genius. As I believe every single person should work in retail and restaurant at least once, every single person should read/listen to this book.
Thank you thank you Amy Alkon!
I liked the beginning... I wasn't real into the narrators voice... then I was disappointed in the end....
Like Michael Caine... I felt like the story portrayed a younger couple but the narrators voice made me feel like I was listening to a grandfather type figure.
NOT listen to the sequel...
I went off of reviews on this one and I think it started off good... maybe if someone wanted to power on to the next book they'd find their questions answered but... I'm good :(
The writing is brilliant and how all things are tied together is fascinating!
The discovery of becoming and being a zombie!
After listening to the "white trash accent" I start talking like that lol. Allison McLemore is great at keeping ALL of the characters recognizable with her voice.
Angel of course... but I wouldn't want to give anything away by naming others!
Definitely wish I would've started with this book and listened in order. Although nothing was ruined for me a lot of the references in recent books are explained/detailed in earlier ones. Not a deal breaker! Love all of these books! So far How the White Trash Zombie Got Her Groove Back is my fave :)
Top 2 funniest!
I've listened to Tina Fey's Bossypants but I think Aisha Tyler's book was more on the humility side
Laugh for sure - extreme reaction had to be the inspirational quality of the book. She really has the "Go out there and f*(% do it!" attitude and I love it!
This is such a great read/listen for anyone wanting humor, inspiration, a kick in the pants, to know someone beautiful has gone through the same trials, tribulations and awkwardness as we all have... All around great book. I thank the Audible person that recommended it to me!
And now I want to be Aisha Tylers BFF!
I would definitely... actually got the series downloaded! Well written and narrated
Angel of course! Just because she is deemed white trash does not mean she is a moron. She's emotional and street smart!
Not alive... but not stoopid!
I was really impressed by the writing and performance of the narrator. I thought I'd give it a shot based on ratings but was cracking up at the story, as well as grossed out by the detail! So well written and well thought out. Not "just another zombie tale!" Make it a movie!
Got me through a long drive. It wasn't TERRIBLE, but wasn't exactly edge-of-your-seat either.
Big Little Lies
Typical, soothing, clear
No... download another book!
Maybe it was the original creation date of 1959 that makes me feel like this book is "old." Has it's moments but not chilling as I hoped. Frankly the characters seemed mean! A somewhat strange listen for me. I think I'll stick to the Koontz/King books.
The Aussie accent :) Love it. Obsessed. Another fave about this story is that it sounds JUST LIKE how parents are today - hovering, gossipy - and I'm not even a parent!
Madeline... we all know "that girl". It was fantastic!
Almost... Was VERY into the story. I laughed, I felt sad, I was shocked!
I think this book would be enjoyed by any woman!
