No, I just didn't get this book. I thought it would be like Against Medical Advice (Patterson/Friedman) which was a true story and fascinating. But this was just plain repetitive and, for me, could not hold my interest.
I would have simply rated this with the stars, but it wouldn't let me. This was an ok book; not sure I'd listen again any time soon.
Another book I couldn't stop listening to and would again. Interesting insight into the world of military working dogs.
Couldn't put this book down ... in a manner of speaking. I'll listen again if I can get past the female characters, at least two and maybe three sound awfully alike. Exception is the gawd-awful female prosecutor. Nobody, but nobody sounds like this. And if she does exist, she doesn't belong on tape.
I feel like I'm in middle school with all these questions.
I read Smiley's MOO and loved it, which is why I thought I'd enjoy Smiley again. GRIEF was a disappointment to me, though it had moments of brilliance.
Dialogue, inner thoughts. Endings.
Way too much repetition of dentists' kids bratty antics and stomach flu -- way, way, way too much information as they say.
I know this has rave reviews, but there is so much history that drags it down, not enough about the man himself. I returned it.
I never heard of this guy before, but what an amazing life he has had! What's the audio equivalent of a page-turner? Whatever that is, this book is.
I had to stop listening after about half an hour ... I felt I'd heard it all before. Great writer, but needs to branch out in some other direction.
Probably not. I've come to the conclusion that once you've listened to a couple of her books it's the same story with only minor twists -- predictable and definitely not a page-turner. She's in the same category in my mind as Sue Grafton, whose books I used to love (A is for Alibi, B is for...), but in her case she doesn't make it to the 21st Century, which I just find annoying (I'm sure there are Agatha Christie fans out there who would disagree).
