I didn't have any trouble with the accents and Im kind of surprised a lot of other people did. The story was good but there was too much jumping around between characters and between generations for me to keep up with. I have a hard time with any book that has a lot of characters. At the end when they focused only on the two main characters and only in one time frame I really started to get interested but then soon after it was the end.
I listened to the book with head phones and it sounded like she had a lozenge in her mouth. It just about drove me crazy enough to quit the book. I don't know if it's as noticeable listening to it on a speaker. By book 3 either I was used to it or she didn't make that noise anymore.
It was worth it, I guess. I liked the story but the some of the erotic stuff was more abusive than erotic and in the 3rd book some of it was just gross.
Not if I don't have to. She talks in crescendos and it is highly annoying.
The whole story, up until I gave up was the same thing over and over. She barely knows him but she has sex with him. She's barely knows him but the sex is good. She barely knows him but she's in love with him. She barely knows him but he moves her in and the sex is good. She barely knows him and blah, blah, blah,..
Her idea of erotic is too close to creepy. It's one thing for the character to say he will tie her up and f**k her brains out and she will like it...but this character was saying he would tie her up keep her and never let her go. With the creepy voice she had for Jesse, it just made the whole story cross over into creepy.
The voice she used for Jesse made it sound like he was a decrepit 90 year old man.
I finally gave up on it. The story didn't seem to be going anywhere.
I was very much into the story and the performance was good.
All was great but the way it ended was like someone tore the last page out of the book and you don't know how it ended. I was left unsatisfied.
Yes. It was a good heartwarming story that makes you feel all kinds of emotions.
When Matt comes back.
Her voice was hard from me to get used to. It almost seemed over performed and I also had to turn it up extra loud for some parts because she spoke too softly. It would all depend on how badly I wanted to hear the book.
Just a sweet, sad, happy and well rounded story.
The story is like a scary and weird fairy tail. I don't care for that kind of story and didn't realize that was what it was going to be like. It did keep my attention and was well written though.
Something more grounded.
Not for me.
I did not read the print version.
I loved part 1, A Dog's Purpose but A Dog's Journey was even better.
I loved all of it. There were moments that were very sad but you knew it wasn't over yet.
The narrator was awesome. He has a warm fuzzy voice that is perfect for a warm fuzzy animal.
All of it. It was kind of weird and torturous.
I love Colin Firth. He has a great voice.
Just downright dull.
Yes, because you get to here the voice of Owen Meany. At first the voice he uses for Owen Meany is weird and that is what the characters in the book also think but then the voice grows on you and you grow to love him as do the characters in the book.
I dont know if I could have truly experienced the character of Owen Meany without the voice.
This book mad me laugh and made me sad at times.
This book had so many facets to it. There is friendship, faith, history, miracles, love and mystery and it all comes around and makes an amazing, complete circle. I can't believe I had never heard of this book. Owen Meany's name will always be locked in my head just like Atticus, Scout and Boo Radley from "To Kill a Mockingbird" and Amir and Hassan from "The Kite Runner".
