I bought this yesterday, listened to it yesterday and am starting over again today. I love these stories.
Some of the stories kind of remind me of a Wes Anderson script, but darker- dry, smart, funny...and I loved hearing him read the stories, I think, had I read them myself, I would have had a different interpretation on some. He writes like I speak, but smarter.
Anyway- I loved it, listening again and I'm sure I'll listen many times over, and buy the book so I can underline clever sentences- the writing is just wonderful- so much to love about this book :)
I really loved this book-- mystery, murder, creepiness, a bunch of surprises, a couple of grumpy old ladies. This reader is amazing too- seriously one of the best audio performances I've heard.
Definitely well worth a credit- an all around enjoyable listen.
Kind of ridiculous, but still a fun listen. I bought this title because it was in Audible's list: "The Next Gone Girl?", this was much more predictable than Gone Girl- still had a few surprises.
This book is listed in Mysteries & Thrillers> Suspense, but should probably be Mysteries & Thrillers > Suspense > Erotica. Will the "virgin" cyber sex star with serious psychological issues of her own become a hero? And will she find true love? And if all that happens- can she save herself?
Well I'm not telling :)
Stephen King tweeted about how much he liked this book and The Homecoming, so of course I bought it right away! I really liked the story- crime mixed with supernatural elements I guess you could say--but the reader- sorry- just so breathy and sing songy- probably right or some stories, but not for this one.
So I don't know- maybe try the sample and see if you're ok with the reader before you buy it- or try the book. I see the next one is read by someone else so fingers crossed for a better outcome.
I have seen this movie- who hasn't? But I saw it when I was a teenager and didn't remember much aside from the grosser parts of the film. The book was a surprise- not really a horror book at all, sure it was really creepy in parts- and there were lots of gross bits, but more of a character study with a lot of good vs.evil. I thought it was really interesting --very well written and William Peter Blatty did such a great job reading. He really brought the characters to life. So glad that I listened!
What a really sucky thing to happen to a nice girl :) I haven't seen this movie so the story was a surprise for me, and although there are a lot of clues as to what's going to happen, the ending was kind of insane- baffling really! Fun listen- I didn't find it scary, but tense sometimes and Mia Farrow was great reading it.
Pretty much the sunniest, happiest, cheesiest and most romantic comedy in the the whole world. So adorable...
Now, I know, we're not always in the mood for such sentiment and happiness and giddy jumping around, but if you're in the mood- this is a good one. Now I'm moving on to Rosemary's Baby to undo some of this :)
on a side note- I love Audible's Daily Deals- try something new for cheap!
It will be awhile before I take another bath...
I am a "constant reader" and often get on Stephen King kicks- I can't believe I hadn't visited this book yet. Really scary-and in a way that you think- man, that could happen maybe- could that happen? Are there ghosts like that? I loved the characters and will miss them and I even loved SK reading- and sometimes I don't :)
My favorite parts of American Psycho were the fashion & food commentary, beauty tips, and updates on the Patty Winter Show. The murders were pretty hard to listen to- way over the top. Still- I really enjoyed this book and the characters- the reader was great too!
I started this book a couple of months ago, stopped, started, stopped, started- it was pretty sad in the beginning, and I couldn't stay with it.
BUT when I came back to it a third time nicer things started happening. I can't remember exactly what Mr. Pucci says, but something about finding happiness and letting yourself be happy. That's pretty nice. I ended up really enjoying this book and the characters (except for a few characters who remained real jerks). ha :)
Oh- and there was something that comes back around towards the end of the book which is fun- I thought- "gah- should have seen that coming", but it happened so long ago it didn't register until she mentioned it, but it was a great element to the story.
Sometimes you just want to hear a fun story and this might be it. No, it's not literature- it's not complicated or even well written...ok, that sounds snotty, but I don't mean it to be.
I bought this from the Audible daily sale and I've listened to it in between this and that- when you want to cook or do something else, or just get away from the crazy deep story that you're listening to- it's a fun one! I might even buy another as this Atticus sounds so cute :)
