It was a surprisingly strong top tier read - story and narrator. Wasn't sure I'd like it but couldn't wait to jump back in on my commute each day to see how it all turned out.
It falls into the Mitch Rapp/Vince Flynn camp - shorter, not as in depth in detail but certainly a fast read with the elements of suspense, revenge and the depths the inquisitor goes to for the truth.
I liked it - took a bit to get used to as the narrator was a new voice for me - but it worked well as it adopted the persona of the key players in the story arc.
Parts made me squirm but not to the point of distraction from the overall story. Just enough to bring you into the inquisitor's mind and persona in full support of the story.
This would have been a great television series, even over multiple seasons. Quality consistent with the author and performance. Can't believe I missed this one and feel fortunate to have found it. Top notch.
While author/reader was key to the experience, emotion to the story was removed for a more literal, level read of the highs and lows of a life and era central to art and music of the times.
Wild ride, twists, turns and enjoyable throughout. Really liked the three readers. Will be looking for more from this author.
More interesting, even some mystery, when compared to Fifty Shades. Worthy follow up. Enjoyable and sets up final chapter. Next?
Having no idea where this was headed, it was engaging and a must-continue as I went along for King's ride.
Very classic Grisham-like tale that keeps you listening beyond your typical window of commuting or otherwise. Tackles family, legal systems, police investigations and the mind set during each phase. Well done.
Yes - It renews the current nature of this classic.
This was an amazing experience - Couldn't stop listening
No question - Guy Montag is solid with sensitivity and depth. Clarisse gives the story direction that further rounds out Guy as the lead.
Tim Robbin's performance was terrific - beyond any of my expectations! It made this an instant classic all over again. I have not heard any of his others but now he, as a narrator, has my attention.
I was riveted unlike anything I expected. As my headline states, How is it possible for a book from the early 50's to be so on target with where we are today? When originally read, it leaned science fiction. Now, it's far more the reality of our current technological times.
Brilliant. A Must Listen!
Yes - I found the "experience" of the story and Scott Brick's narrative compelling and addicting to keep me engaged and wanting more.
I didn't see it coming - which I like - and I let the story take me there in a very effective way
Scott Brick is consistent to say the least - It certainly compliments the story when someone of his caliber is at the helm of the read
I think we've all felt frustration, even helplessness, when circumstances spin out of control. There were plenty of these moments.
This is my second experience with a Rob Lowe authored and read selection and I'm pleased to say "Love Life" was on par with his autobiography - a personal, reflective, often humorous, and in this case, family-focused read.
Rob, of course. Yet, not in the way many of us can fully define depending on the era we became familiar with him. I was taken into his characters as well as the public and private person keeping me engaged as the stories are told.
The missteps that failed to lead to roles and opportunities he would have easily entertained had he had the chance.
Keeping it in Perspective
This was a total discovery - from the writing, the author and the narrator. It's been a long time since I wasn't able to stop...
The pacing was terrific - the narration equally - many moments when I was unable to stop as I needed to know more about the next twist.
Everything - I probably gravitated to Scott Brick more often than not in the past but January will now be another top favorite.
A nice mix of emotion, mystery and twisted behavior. Compelling combinations
