Someone who is looking for a cheap novel type of book. The entire first volume seems focused on the sex between the corporal and the missionary's wife.
No, his performance was mediocre. The voice of the Marine Corporal sounds like a whiny child, and it was not different enough from the wife of the missionary.
Most of them.
From the description, we expected an uplifting and informative book. That is not the case. We are two thirds of the way through the first volume, and have learned hardly anything about the Marine Corps history, values or accomplishments.
Yes, certainly. This is a well-written thriller, very suspenseful, and had some nice surprise twists.
You have to like Robin, for she saves the plot and the day. And Cormoran is witty, stereotypical in some ways, and endearing.
No extreme reaction, but did make me laugh sometimes when Cormoran was just too typecast.
It was a dear, sweet, albeit fairy tale like, story. Reminds us all to "stop and smell the roses" - to interrupt routine and habit to do something important for someone else. And of course, in the process, we help ourselves.
The innocent, naive way that Harold goes about doing this great deed. And at the same time, I found myself frustrated with his wife, who was afraid to step outside her self-imposed boundaries.
No, unfortunately not.
Yes, when Harold's neighbor talks about his wife dying, and that he "should have railed against this", rather than just accepting the doctor's diagnosis and doing the best they could. This comment was about fighting for what you love, even though it might not change the outcome.
Cold War now.
I always like John Clarke - he embodies the hero that we all need/want. I love it when the US cavalry charges in!
I don't know if this was my favorite, but the scene where the jets come in over the safe house and scare the mob is classic. And of course the pilots are having fun as they safe their colleagues!
yes, but unfortunately I could not do this.
As always, Lou Diamond Phillips does an excellent job of conveying the story.
No, but only because I very rarely listen/read the same book twice.
The flavor of Divergent reminds be a bit of the Dune series - full of life lessons and moral/ethical commentary, but in a futuristic setting.
Tris - the star - is of course quite good. But I also liked Tris' mother, Evelyn.
No extreme reaction - but a very thought-provoking book.
Excellent book - slightly sic-fi, but not as futuristic as we might think. I am currently listening to Insurgent, the second book in the series; so far, just as good as Divergent.
Do not know, as I only have the audio version.
Two favorite characters … Charlotte, because she was brave enough to take great risk in the search for a better life and set an example for her daughter, and Sarah, because she too chose to not conform and be better.
In most cases, I think the narrator makes the audio book. In this case, as with The Secret Life of Bees and The Help, the narrator places you within the time/place context of the story.
Gosh, I don't know.

His reading was too monotone - not enough inflection and cadence change to highlight the important items.
Disappointment and frustration at not being able to wade through the endless details to get to the heart of the story he was trying to tell.
This book is a missed opportunity for explaining the relevance of physics to everyday life. I believe Lewin has much to offer, and truly understands the subject matter in a way that allows him to make it relevant. But the book is boring, I'm sorry to say.
Entertaining, but not enthralling.
Poorly written, predictable, no plot development, and very poorly read. Total waste of time and money.
