If you enjoy gross but funny cop stories, listening to J.A. Konrath books read by Hill and Dawe are a must. I wonder where Konrath comes up with some of the gross detail and yet he can be so very witty. You will cringe and laugh at these short stories. It is a nice touch to have personal notes by Konrath attached to each story.
I kept waiting for something interesting to happen. I would put this book in the safe category, no cursing, action, romance or suspense. The fads held my interest and growing up in the 60's & 70's some of the fads did bring back memories and made me chuckle, but this book was just a little to slow and uneventful for me.
It took me about 2 hours before I got the humor and then I realized that Phil Gigante's voice was perfect! I have never liked any kind of space/future for lack of words star trek movies or books until now. I will be picking up more books from this series, it was a lot of fun.
I liked the concept of the book but I didn't like Melanie. I was annoyed and frustrated with the bossy, coy southern bell that doesn't like dogs and yet gets annoyed that someone gives her inherited dog some toys! I didn't like the fact that she specialized in selling old homes and yet hates everything not modern.
I would put this book in the young romance section, a predictable story, no curse words, romance?....a couple of kisses and sleeping on the couch, oh hum.
The book sounded fun and interesting but I felt it was not very funny and I was embarrassed by how the characters came off as stereotypical redneck hicks.
Boy if my maiden name wasn't McCoy and I didn't live in San Jose I would have said this book was a snoozer. The book stops at a lot of bay area towns that I can visualize but not sure that other people would be interested in and I didn't think the towns added much to the story.
I'm not of any kind of religious belief but I was not put off nor offended by all of the religious references.This book has so much to offer, I feel everyone will be able to take something from this read and put it to use.
None of Konrath's gross twisted creepy writing but funny McGlade adult humor, my husband and I were cracking up!
I didn't know this was going to be a religious book or I would have not bought it, that being said, this is an inspirational book and I would highly recommend this book to anyone battling addiction and or of christian faith.
I could relate to Cooper and Lil's upbringing and if I had read this book 40 years ago I would have fallen in love with reading. But at the age of 60, this book is predictable with little suspense. I would highly recommend this book for young adults. Lil is a strong smart role model for women and Cooper an honorable young man.
I have to admit this is my first Nora Roberts book so if this is typical, then I will probably pass on her other books.
My dad was in WW 2 and would NEVER talk about it, after listening to this book I know why. It is hard for me to wrap my brain around what took place. The numbers quoted in this book are staggering! The torture incomprehensible!
I keep thinking about the protesters complaining about the U.S. using water boarding!!
