the characters and how they change
The main character is named Macon. The reader constantly pronounces it Mee con or meegun. it sounds as if he is saying megan. I find it really annoying.
This is a great book. I read it years ago and later saw the movie version. it is funny and charming and the characters are rounded out and believable. I am not enjoying the audible version as much as I had hoped.
I read the book years ago. And I watched the tv mini series. The pictures in my mind may have been influenced by the mini series. But I found listening very enjoyable. I loved the narration. Played it in the car on a long trip with my spouse and we both enjoyed the tale.
I really have a hard time picking a favorite. I think Ory would be the best choice. He had to change his attitude about so many things during the book. I felt I had a much better appreciation for the real people who lived through our civil war.
Hearing the story read aloud just makes it so much more personal. I loved the narration.
I am not good at this sort of question.
This is not great literature. North and South is a great yarn set in a real period of conflict in our nation. Many people have their own personal stories of relatives who lived through the time. I think this book helps to flesh out those stories. It is interesting how quickly the pulse of a nation can change.
The personal stories of Rangers and other workers in the Parks. The descriptions of the different parks make me want to visit them soon.
One of the rescues at Half Dome in Yosemite.
The narrator. Most of the book was written in third person.
I think I did listen to it in two sittings. If I had started in the morning instead of at night, I probably would have not been able to put it down.
I really enjoyed this book. I had a friend who worked at King's Canyon National Park during the late 70's. I found the woman's perspective about working for the Park Service pretty much like my friend had described. I had no idea that much of their work involved dealing with pretty hard stuff. I hope the Park Service is doing a better job at helping their rangers deal with the stress and trauma. I would really like to visit more of our National Parks after reading this book. Definitely worth the credit.
I did not read the print version, but found the audio version to be wonderful. I loved the narrator. His voice is not craggy or accented. His reading is clear and not marred by mispronunciation. I was hooked from the very beginning.
This book is full of excitement and surprises.
This is my first book by Robert Crais. I was drawn in almost immediately. I really cared about the main character. The plot has turns that were truly surprising. Nothing was really over the top. Great story. Hope to read more by this author.
It would spoil the ending to answer that.
I have only heard George read the Walt Longmire stories by Craig Johnson. His reading is perfect for this book. He has clear voices for all the characters and is very easy to listen to.
Yes. I almost did being in the car all day on a road trip. Wonderful.
i have enjoyed all of these books by Craig Johnson. They are all wonderful. Each one is exciting and surprising. the last hour of this recording has a chat between Craig Johnson and George Guidall. This conversation was so enlightening. A wonderful treat.
This was another thrilling mystery read by the amazing Will Patton. Perfect combo, Burke and Patton. I enjoyed learning more about the effects of the oil spill on the region.
the accent. And the voices of all the characters. I love hearing Will Patton read.
Yes, I was totally engrossed.
While I found More Than Words Can Say a little bit light and predictable. I could relate to the main character's situation. I also liked the characters and descriptions of the area. I would really like to visit them there. Also, it is read by Cassandra Campbell who has a very nice voice and delivery. This was an enjoyable read as long as you don't expect lots of action and angst.
I can think of several. I bought it because it was set in the area around Syracus, NY. I live a bit further north, but am somewhat familiar with the area. The description of the lake cottage culture seemed dead on. And the characters were developed pretty well, too.
No, but it was really nice because of Cassandra Campbell's voice and pacing. I really found it easy to listen to her. There was a sort of mystery/problem in the book that I did want to get to the end of. Also, most of the people in this book were the kind of people you would like to know. No cussing or sex that I can remember.
This really isn't my kind of book. I am drawn more to Swedish detective stories. That being said, the reader and the story were interesting enough for me to finish the book. The characters were interesting and rang true, as did the events. The book dealt with a woman learning about her grandmother's secrets and deciding what to do with the knowledge. I could easily relate to that. Revelations can effect different people in a family very differently. Sometimes knowledge can be a burden.
This was a very interesting story, and had been made into a wonderful movie in the 70's. the book goes deeper into the history and background.
I think my favorite was the leader of the German commandoes. But that may have been influenced by the fact that a young and dashing Michael Caine played him in the film.
I think it would be the ending of the book. Different from the film, I found it gave a credibility to the story that left me believing it really may have happened.
I wish I could have. I was on a road trip that made it a little easier. Being alone, I was able to continue listening when on food stops.
I really liked the reader. the pace was good. I could differentiate the different characters. It was a good listen. Great book. So glad I listened to this one.
The characters, story line and reading combine to make a most enjoyable experience. This is a surprising gift of a story.
Los Angeles raised Sabine's first visit to a super Wal-Mart in Nebraska.
Dot Fetters. That said, it is almost a toss up with Sabine and Kitty.
Phan, who was Parcival the Magician's partner. Phan had such an interesting life, full of drama and the tragedy of war. Yet, his character was so peaceful and loving.
This book, like all of Ann Patchett's novels, is completely unique. Where does she come up with these stories? Who would ever come up with these situations and characters? Ann Patchett, I guess. This is an earlier novel and has a lighter tone and more likable character than some of her later novels. I keep this book on my ipod and find myself going back to it over and over again. I even find myself making notes of certain sentences. Karen Ziemba reading is clear and engaging. Karen was able to get all the characters and regional accents consistently. She has an easy to listen to voice and her pace and differentiation of the many characters is wonderful. Karen Ziemba was a perfect reader for The Magician's Assistant.
maybe, I found this book a little less enjoyable than the previous Harry Hole stories. This book takes you to very dark place. Watching a loved one become lost in drug addiction is not for the faint of heart. I think Nesbo hits the nail on the head depicting what the addiction does to an addict's mind and soul. But having seen this happen to friends ("back in the day") and to kids of friends and family, I just don't enjoy it being used for entertainment.
This is still a Harry Hole story. All the wonderful characters with all their strengths and weaknesses. And the plot twists and turns and keeps you guessing right up to the end.
Robin Sachs is amazing. He has a way of whispering in your ear. I love his voices and the pace of his reading. He is one of my favorite readers.
Well, if I did not have a life outside of listening to great books, I would have.
