Better stories, not so many old hackneyed stories.
Pretty much, will be much more careful with short stories.
The narration was wildly uneven as far as I listened, may have gotten better but I lost interest.
Not for me.
Save your money.
Can't do it, 3 words is just not enough. It's such a deep story, yet after a slow start ( but needed for the information), it held my attention through out the book. A very different culture, the Japabnese, and a different time frame as well, but a terrific story.
The dyes and her hands.
At first, I thought she was a bit flat- then it was the perfect voice for this book.
No, but it fascinated me.
Long, good, intense and powerful.
Yes, and I am not normally a war stories fan- that would be my husband. But this story, or both stories, put a human face on so many aspects of this war that I got all caught up in the story- and it's a true story on top of everything else, too!
Not to spoil it, but when he walked past the Nazis at the end of the war and everyone pretended to be blind to each other. Or maybe when you listened to him go through what we'd now call PTSD episodes and just have to live with it. Or maybe the absolute joy he found in flying....
All of them.
Not a war story fan? Get it anyways, it's a terrific story.
The behind the scenes view of the record business back in the day, so to speak. I listened to a lot of this company's music growing up and was fascinated by how it started.
It didn't gloss over a lot, yet didn't try to nail anyone.
I probably wouldn't have read it- not much time to read hard copy these days.
No, so much information in the story to absorb, yet it holds you all the way through.
Very very good.
Since I travel for 6 to 8 hours every night, I listen to a LOT of books- this is probably in the mid range for me. I would listen to it again, after 6 months or so.
NO, but she did a fair job- the english accents are a bit harsh, but I am used to the southern slur.
Just the sadness.
I've made it sound bad, but it was a fair enough listen and held my attention through out.
Didn't read any of the series in print, loved listening to them on audio with the terrific narrator!
That it seems, hopefully, that this is not the end of the series, for one thing.
It was romance, and hot & sexy and definitely paranormal, but it made sense and the story was just great.
The stories follow each other well, and soon I will load my ipod with all 6 and listen in order, and enjoy them just as much as I did the first time.
I just really enjoy her voices- very very good.
Get the whole series- you won't be disappointed!
Yes, it is well nuanced and it's a good listen.
Even when the main character was whiny or not such a great person, they went on and showed it; it gives a glimpse into a life many will never know much about.
She was a good clearly spoken reader.
Yes, I wanted to know what was going to happen next.
The ending was a bit of a let down, but realistic.
Heart breaker, dignity, human needs. 4 words, too bad!
Nope. He voiced it well, the pathos of the story was evident, yet it had dignity. Very hard to do.
It's always the same- when the main character realizes he is losing it....
I read this in junior high, and it still stands the test of time and remains very good as there are so many levels in this story. Hearing it as opposed to reading it made a huge difference as well, to the good.
Because this story has so many levels, I wish it would be required reading in junior high, then in college- to see how the person's perspective on the story changes after some years and experiences change themselves.
Yes, it has very good characters and the time period is simply yet eloquently described. It rings true in so many ways.
None in particular, I liked them all.
It made me think and feel strongly about the things written, and was a wonderful glimpse into the past and another culture.
Starts just a bit slow, but next thing you know, you are knee deep and caught up in the story.
I don't really rate books like that, but it is back to the road of improvement after the books in this series getting shorter and shorter and rather stale. I have to admit, I'm a Ranger fan and would like to see Stephanie end up with him versus Joe Morelli, LOL!But it made me laugh again, and was a quick listen, and as always, great narrator. I really like how she does the characters.I do hope this series goes on and continues to be as good as the 8 to 12 books were. The author has a winner here and I would hate to see her stop this series with so much that can be explored still.
Not a terrific ending, but then....
She's a really terrific reader and her characters are also so very well done. I listened to another series ( and hope that one goes on as well!) because she was reading it- the stories are good in that series as well.I think LK brings a lot to the books she reads and it's all good.
It only took one sitting because it's not the longest book, so yes.
Worth the credit.
Can't do it in three words, but will say this novel is a great listen, harsh at times, yet with so much hope and grace in the most primitive times. When the family is turned out, and the treachery goes on, you can 't just stop and go to something else!
Clan Of The Cave Bear. Both are novels, yet show wonderful research and work to bring the listener to another time, another place. Both ring true as you listen- hard, yet honest.
Very smooth reading/narration, good voices for all the characters.
Well, other than the title character, it's hard to choose which one- maybe the mother- straight forward acceptance of the hardships and living on the edge, yet strong.
I wasn't too sure about this book, but I'll listen to it again. Very good listen, well worth the credit and time.
