OK, I love this series BUT this book didn't go where I expected. I was left with a distinct "Is this all there is to the fire?" feeling. Hoping Book four answers some questions, this one cut some corners. Just sayin'...
I love both Series, Mercy and Alpha/Omega...I don't think you'll find better character development, world building, or plotting...read the books chronologically and you can't go wrong. Patricia Briggs is in a class by herself!
These are not stand alone books...You really need to read the Mercy books and then follow the two chronologically...I love these characters and this world. Such a lovely escapist series. Bravo Patricia Briggs! May the Goddess of Inspiration continue to bless you!
There were hours too many of running through the wildwoods, the ending was an abrupt cliffhanger and some of these characters are just unbelievable. So difficult to stay engaged. If you are invested in Eve's world, you need some closure and this was not it...I feel Iris is just milking the series now.
Humph...what ending? Not a single one.
No, but I thought she did a fine job. No complaints there.
I liked the pacing, the plot twists, the character development...Nick Heller is a hero for today. The voice actor is really good and an easy listen. I recommend this for a drive, a lazy sunny day, a sleepless night...anytime you can devote some hours to it. I couldn't put it down.
No, the narrator thinks it adds veracity to the character to whisper his evil vile words so that they are completely incomprehensible. WTH are you thinking? It's an AUDIBLE it should be audible!
No! She is an idiot whispering an Audible book!
Yes, it angered me enough to take the time to write this review. Common Sense people, no background sounds and no whispering and no heavy incomprehensible accents...puhleeze!
The closeness of the family and the well developed distinctive characters. I have read this tale many times in many guises...this is one of the better ones. I liked both the tale and the telliing, the narrator is excellent.
no, but I will.
This is written and performed by a Black man, his perspective and historical points may be valid...but his presentation is all about the evil, greedy Caucasian versus the ever downtrodden Black peoples and Native Americans. I listened to the entire piece and am so disappointed. I am not a prejudiced person, but I am sick of the race card and the continued harping on something no one alive suffered and no one alive perpetrated. Get a life, own it, live it to the best of your ability. People of all colors suffer hardships and persecution, they overcome, they succeed. I can't recommend it.
This horse story started just a bit slow, but by the second hour I was enthralled. I listened to the book in one marathon listen! This true story seems a metaphor for the American 'family and community spirit' rebuilding following the first World War. I thought the pacing was excellent. I was impressed with the work ethic of the Flying Dutchman and his jumper. I thought the ending was perfect. The reader was excellent, he never hit a sour note irritating me out of the story. The rich man, poor man thread was handled with dignity. Societal and Political details were sprinkled in without bias and bring a sense of credibility to an otherwise amazing story. Overall, I think this book about a horse is destined to become a classic.
I don't like a guided review, so here are my thoughts...I always thought he was a talented actor. I enjoyed the chemistry between the two Coreys, I never gave one thought to what life was doing to those boys and I feel guilty that this happens over and over again in 'Hollywood'--but really throughout the world. Corey does a fine job of telling his story and highlighting Corey Haim's...his voice rings true in the telling. He also comes across as a survivor, a hero in his own lifestory--as he should. He stole a piece of my heart along the way. The mother in me wants to comfort the child he was, the lost boy he became, and the wounded man he is...but the woman in me knows this is unnecessary, he's all grown up. Scars and all, this man has found his way and does not need my comfort. I admire his fighting spirit and I wish him all the best, it takes real courage to strip away your defenses and expose yourself to the light.
I found the book to be well written, no cloying self pity clouding the storyline, just a glaringly honest accounting of his life to date. I do recommend the book.
High, this is well written, historically correct, and characters are well developed.
There are so many, Rachel, Henry, Kenji, Katherine
No, but I love her voice and the natural cadence of her voice, just beautiful to listento.
Uncle Pono, he was so funny and so loving...if I could include Henry we'd have a party!
This book will engage you, educate you, introduce you to Hawaiian Culture, make you laugh out loud, cry through a box of tissues and leave you wrung out. I loved every word.
