I had read one Coben book, and was interested in trying another. Shelter is full of teenage angst and high school drama. The story line is good, but the main character is a teenage boy with a crush. I listened through, but lost interest.
Interesting setting, nice pace. The two main storylines do not get equal treatment, but you will understand what is going on. Also, some big events are dealt with rather quickly, to get them out of the way and on to the next event. But still, I found this to be a very enjoyable listen.
Some writers think that they are the best ones to read their book. Not so, being a good writer does not mean you also have a great narrator's voice. Some do, but not this one.
Penny takes her Three Pines characters and adds more layers of depth. I truly enjoyed not only the plot of the murder mystery, but the changes she puts in the lives of the villagers. If you haven't listened to any in this series, do so now. The narrator is one of the best you will hear.
Thomas Perry gives us an assassin that you want to root for! The man is a killing machine, and you hoping he gets away, one more time. You cheer for the bad guy as he goes through his adventure, one close call after another all the way to the ending.
The narrator is amazing.
Louise Penny's descriptive prose makes me feel as if I am there. In this episode, the inspector and his wife have taken a vacation which will lead him into another investigation. It is a lovely setting, as well as an interesting plot.
I love the narration of Penny's books. Penny's vivid descriptions brings the little Canadian village to life. It simply a relaxing read. Don't mistake my comments for boring, it is far from it. But it is a light read with depth.
Someone who enjoys constant foul language sprinkling a story about Adam's life. I don't know if he is wanting to be thought of as a "poor unfortunate soul" or if he has no concept of the art of story telling without being foul.
Leave out 80%,or even30% of the offensive language. His disclaimer to his children, if they were listening should have told me everything.
Yes, to view the story again, knowing the ending. I think it will enrich the story.
That it was about gritty and sorted people without stooping too low to get that view.
Yes. I always enjoy his performances. Spot on!
Is "hooker with a heart of gold" simply a fairytale?
Sure. It's funny
Sedaris' complete awareness of the events that are happening around him.
Listening to their visit to their grandmother's house was a scream.
When the family were all in a hotel, all in their own little worlds.
Really funny, makes you think and can break your heart.
