January guessing at reason for time out
Not if I can help it
Interesting study in Father Obsessiveness. Thank God he was there to save the day. Gee if someone just listened to mom, there would have been no story.
Not sure why this book received such high ratings. It was like playing golf with a dead guy...or watching grass grow. Maybe it was the narration. The last 42 minutes, which was the most exciting part of the book, was a ponderous listen. Save your credit for another time.
Yes, the book was well written. The content of the book well researched. It's a little bit about Patton, and a whole lot about the others who played leading roles in WWII - my only criticism of the book. It's too bad it didn't carry another title.
Bill could read the Bible and make it sound like breaking news.
No. I saw it before
Intense, thrilling, inspiring
The many moments of failed attempts followed by sublime successs
The loss of Endurance
I wanted to listen to this in one sitting, but had to do it in three. It just made it even better.
What would have made The Quick better? Less words.
Don't know. I'm sure there will be Book 2, but will probably not read it.
Narration is great. Wasted on this book.
The last 5th if the book
The Power of One is right up there standing strong with all my favorite books. The narration was perfect. The story was so good, I had a hard time putting it down to sleep. I loved how Mr. Courtenay took us through the life of a child and the life of a nation.
This was a Daily Deal purchase. The best five bucks I ever spent.
Would not recommend because I didn't like the book. Not that I must like every book I listen to.
Working Holly in sooner with Jerome. Maybe a couple of books for Bill, Holly and Jerome to do some crime fighting
Will Patton saved the book
I listened to it, and out of all the hours spent listening, there were 10 to 15 minutes well spent
I read the reviews before listening to this book. I knew it wasn't the regular King fodder, so I gave it a try.
I haven't a clue.
There is no story.
Give the reader something to work with. I love Simon Vance, but this isn't his fault.
This is an unfair question. All of the characters, with the exception of the dog, should be left out.
Nope. I wish I read this book when I first bought it, so I could get my credit back.
Good Shit, Dude!
The Alimentary Canal.
Emily did a great job. She has a light airy voice which translates mischief very well.
I did listen to this book in one sitting. I bought it as a daily deal, not sure whether to spend a whole precious credit on it. I wasn't disappointed. I haven't read the other reviews before writing mine. So, I am curious to look back and see what others thought. Of course, this isn't War and Peace. It reminded me of the old Readers Digest series "I'm Joe's Liver", but with greater depth, curiosity, and respect for the subject.
This book would be a great read for any one wanting information about the anatomy, without being bored to death. Very down to earth, interesting, and fun read.
