I read the book in high school and then reread now 50 yrs later. Now I remember why I didn't like it then. I love detail and don't mind very long books, have read most classics. But Victor Hugo sometimes goes on and on. The narrater is wonderful, I highly recomend
George Guidall, he does an outstanding job. The characters are distinive and clear.
This story was done very well, very factual but kept you very interested from start to finish. By including historical data along with info on shark developement it was enjoyable. Of course the narrator Len Cariou just increased the story line, with his clear concise voice and inflections.
As usual I was thrilled with Laurie King's writing abilities. I was not impressed with having a male reader . I have nothing against male readers but I could catch bits of a Scottish accent in the reading. If you have a good thing, why change the readers?
Another great Louise Penny, she is a great wordsmith and keeps you on the edge of your seat with her plots. Only thing I didn't like was the hanging ending, usually she gives you a clear ending but this time she catches you and makes you yearn for the next book in the series. Miss Penny has the ability to make you feel like the characters are real and you become invested in their lives.
Elizabeth George's ability to make you feel you are right there with Inspector Lynley and his Sgt continues in this story line. The reader 's voices for each of the character's was right on. This is a series that I look forward to reading.
This book came as a recomendation from others and now I know why. These authors know how to capture your attention with good storyline, interesting characters, great wordsmithing. It was hard to put the book down, you just couldn't wait for the next chapter. Made me want to move to Guernsey and become one of the Islanders. This is one of those books that will be read many times over.
