The story was pretty good. A little too "romantic" for me but it was okay. The only problem, to me, was when the narrator attempted to speak with a Cajun accent it sounded more like an Irish accent :)
This story was kind of like Lord of the Flies set in modern times with adults instead of young boys. I found it rather disturbing but had to finish it to find out the final results. I took a chance on buying this book because it is not the 'usual' kind I buy. I am glad I did.
This book was not what I expected at all. In all fairness I did not make it all the way throught it. The story was not what I expected at all. I thought I was getting a good old fashioned ghost story, scary. In fact, what I heard reminded me very much of an old movie that I believe was called "The Ghost and Mrs. Miniver".
I guess that the end of this story is left up to each individual reader because there certainly wasn't one in the final chapter!
I waited so long for this book. Practically counted the days until it was released because I so enjoyed the first two books in this trilogy. I have loved every book Ken Follett has written, except this one. Far too much of this book was dedicated to fairly recent politics. The entire book seemed to be a 'hodgepodge' of different stories, very loosely related. To say I am disappointed in this finale to the trilogy is a definite understatement.
This book is well written. The narration was pretty good. I just found it somewhat boring. If you enjoy books about average families this will be perfect for you.
The accent was too much 'work' to understand easily. Plus, I discovered there were supposed to be parts in the story with 'extreme' animal cruelty. I do not read or listen to anything concerning animal cruelty. A waste of a credit for me.
Was the author in a hurry to finish this book? Very strange, unfulfilling ending.
Good follow-up to the first in the series. I know these are meant for 'younger' listeners but I enjoyed this one as much as the first. My only question is, when is the third in the series being released?
This did not seem like a Stephen King book to me. It could have been written by many 'mystery/thriller' authors. I am not sure what was missing, maybe that slight hint of something supernatural? I just don't know. The story was okay but I found it to be more than slightly predictable. I was looking forward to this book but must admit I was a little disappointed.
There was a little too much explicit gore and sex in this story for me to really enjoy it. Apart from that the book was quite good, but too much of the afore-mentioned things for me to give it a higher rating.
