I haven't read the novel, but loved the audible version.
The humor was just right for my sordid tastes.
I was laughing throughout and felt the author gave plenty of winks to his audience.
I would heartily recommend this novel to friends who wanted a laugh. There are too few books like it!
Without spoiling too much, the stand off with the Sniper on 2 separate occasions really stuck with me. Very taut and suspenseful.
The main character, Luka. Bronson's accent was pitch perfect and really brought me in to the story.
If the cold won't get you...
I've been recommending this to anyone within ear shot and will probably re-read it in the near future. SO GOOD
Well, I haven't read the print version, so I can't speak to that.
I think the cast was delightful, but everyone wants more Andre the Giant stories.
Carey Elwes did a fantastic job narrating. His British Accent makes for pleasant listening.
Not particularly. It was just very nostalgic and enjoyable.
The narration definitely made this a homerun for me, however the material is so good as well. It's hard to find such a winning combo of content and narrator that this just really worked for me.
Flowers for Algernon. The emotion this book brings out in you and the sympathy you feel for the characters is most notable in the tone of Algernon.
I'd seen the movie ages ago and Sinise really managed to bring the character of George to life in both adaptations, but his calm voice created an atmosphere that everything would be ok, despite knowing how things would play out. Really great voice for narration and would love to hear him do more VO work.
IMDB has the movie's Tagline as "We have a dream. Someday, we'll have a little house and a couple of acres. A place to call home." I think that works pretty well.
I don't recommend books often, but this one is well worth your money.
If they enjoyed Everybody Loves Raymond, then I would recommend this to them. I've gotten my Dad to listen to it, actually. Rosenthal has a firm tongue in cheek way of reading his book that makes it charming.
I enjoyed hearing him recall his mis-adventures before he got working in TV. His Night at the Museum was quite memorable.
Hearing it in his own words made it more enjoyable for me, as I've only seen him perform in a handful of movies before.
I sought this book out because I'd seen his documentary 'Exporting Raymond' and had seen him perform in 'The TV Set' movie. I like his take on life and humor and felt that his book would have the same tone and was not left wanting.
Pollak is widely known for his impressions and does not hold back with them throughout his audiobook.
I'd have to imagine his impressions and hearing them mightily improves the experience.
Yes, though due to the length of my morning commute, it gets broken up into multiple listens.
I've listened to the Kevin Pollak Chat Show for the past two years and have been waiting to get his audiobook. Glad I finally did!
