I rarely re-listen to books, but this one deserves it. Great narration by John Pruden ! He captured the characters with his voice and intonation perfectly.
The narrator, Eli, is of course the best.
I haven't listened to him previously, but based on this, I am looking for more books narrated by him.
This is reminiscent of a Joe R. Lansdale story, similar flawed but sympathetic characters and a dry humor that I found appealing. Loved it !
I really enjoyed this one ! I loved the Gatsbyesque setting and the fascinating first-person narrator. And I especially LOVED the ending ! Soooo unusual. Excellent reading by Gretchen Mol. Her almost emotionless dictation suits the character.
A dramatic, well paced narrative centered on a hot, oppressive summer in a New England mill town. Excellent narration. This is a character driven story, and I found it quite compelling. Especially loved the "supporting" characters of Fat Bev and Dottie.
This is a sad little story, told in the voice of a (5) year old girl. The narrator really captured the imagination and wonder of a child with her voice. The story made me sad, but it ends on an upbeat note. Lovely !
Absolutely spectacular narration by William Hurt and a compelling (if long) story. Stephen King isn't an actor so his narration pales in comparison, but he does a serviceable job of narrating as well. It was William Hurt's performance that pulled me into this story. One of my favorite audio books ever!
Nothing heavy here, just a fun story with engaging characters, brought to life by an EXCELLENT performance. The mystery is slight, but the misadventures of Georgie are entertaining.
A good narrator can't quite bring this story to life. There is some fascinating historical information woven into the story and some truly interesting detail about the creation of couture fashion. The writing is fine, but something is missing.....maybe a story to bring the factual and historical detail to life.
A wonderful way to make an acquaintance with the writing of Jane Austen. Perfect narration !
A well-written story combining history and culture. It was just a little too long, and the story lost momentum about 2/3 of the way through. Good narrator, her voice suited the chararacters and the story.
A lovely, uplifting story of handing a tragic event with grace and hope. The story has wonderful, sympathetic characters, and makes quiet observations about so many things that are ordinarily taken for granted. There is not a lot of "plot", but I was pulled into this small, simple story. Very life-affirming
The plot will keep you listening, but the writing, narration, and characterization are definitely second rate. The equivalent of watching a "B" movie, entertaining but without much substance.
