I have always adored Audrey Hepburn; her style, grace and movies. However, I did not really know who she was and all she had been through until this book. There were many enjoyable parts in the book, but there were also many sad, heart-wrenching parts as well.
There were so many; her Oscar win for Roman Holiday, her strained, cold relationship with her mother, her not-so-happy marriages, the struggles endured for the birth of her 2 children, and her life-long friendships.
Kimberly's voice was very soothing and pleasant to listen to.
I own both, but am not much of a reader so I chose to listen to the audio.
Of course, The Captain, Derek Jeter!
I loved how the book set the scene of the day he was drafted by the NY Yankees. I felt so much emotion, it made me cry.
Yes. I had a number of reactions throughout this book.
I liked the fact that I finally now know what caused the fall out between The Captain and A-Fraud.
An author's narration always makes a book seem more real to me. I enjoyed Amanda's narration of her book. Her emotional narration made it seem like the things she endured over her 3+ years in Italy were happening now.
The entire book moved me. It is always nice to here the other side of the story the media seems to always overlook and not cover.
I commend Amanda for having not only the will to survive throughout this ordeal, but to share her story, in her words and in her voice with the rest of the world. I wholeheartedly believe she is innocent and that she and Rafael were escape goats for the corrupt Italian Police involved in the case.
I have not read the print version, but plan of buying it. I enjoyed the audio version, as I do with all of the books I have heard.
I loved Luca's reaction the first time he traveled to New York City and attended his first New York Yankees baseball game. I too had the same reactions. I also love how borderline-obsessed he is with James Taylor.
It's a tie...between Luca's first New York Yankees baseball game and his meeting(s) with James Taylor.
Luca's meeting with Liz Gilbert. I adore Eat Pray Love and Liz's other novels, so I was excited to see Luca write about their meeting in his own novel. I love how stereotypical American's can be and how his meeting with Liz blew that out of the water.
I love Lauren's narration, as I always do when the author narrates his/her own book. I truly enjoyed how she allowed us to look into her life and that of those who surrounded her. I could only dream of finding the kind of love she and Bogie shared.
Lauren and Bogie's timeless romance.
Wonderful...I loved every minute of it!
Yes, it was so hard to take a break and I found myself excited to continue on.
Yes. I enjoyed the detail in which the story was told. I also enjoyed the male and female voice differentiation in the narration.
Tris, of course. She's the heroin of the series, but Four as well.
I was moved by how descriptive the scenes were when Tris' mom saved her from the water tank, when she witnessed her father dying and when she herself moved on.
Yes, I would listen to this book again. I truly enjoyed it. Oscar Wilde was a literary genius. He showed no fear in giving us a glimpse into life behind closed doors in his time.
I am not sure I can compare it to another book. It stands out from any other book I have ever read.
I truly enjoyed Steven Crossley's narrating. He brought such life and realism to the characters in the book. Crossley's reading added to each character's personality perfectly.
The end, of course. A dramatic, climatic ending to a wonderfully, written book. I did not laugh, nor cry, but I sat in extreme shock and bewilderment.
This book is a must read and has me looking forward to reading more books by Oscar Wilde.
Unfortunately, I would not. I was disappointed to find that the book was quite different than the movie. More than likely, I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it first, then watched the movie. I had expected to hear a "Diane Lane" type of voice...again, so different from the movie...I was very surprise when I heard the author narrate her book with her southern, twangy voice.
The story itself was an enjoyable look into Tuscany and into the authors life there even though I had an extremely difficult time getting past her accent.
Possibly, as long as she is not the narrator.
Timeless, suspenseful novel.
It kept me wondering and interested throughout the entire book. There were so many questions to be answered along with fabulous plot twists.
The scene with her at the staircase dressed as the lady in white as Rebecca had the previous year. The ending...twists and turns...then the ultimate demise.
I absolutely loved this book. I have had an old hard copy for years, but have never read it until now. I enjoy the way it was written, the characters, and the suspense.
Book 6 seems to have brought the Secret Circle series to an end. I enjoyed the first 5 books, far better than the TV series which left out a number of characters and skewed several of the relationships between those characters. I was glad to see Cassie grow into a powerful and confident witch. I enjoy reading L.J. Smith books. I am looking forward to reading the Vampire Diaries series next.
