I love this series! The narration is absolutely perfect. It is exactly what you would expect Flavia to sound like and the amount of emotion put into the reading is great. It really does justice to a well written and interesting story. All the supporting characters are equally interesting and well developed. I really enjoyed this book, as much as the first. The great thing is I recommended this to my 10 year old and she is loving it too (she is a voracious reader especially of classics like Little Women, Anne of Green Gables so these books suit her). This feels like one of the few series that successfully can cross from adult to kid (much like Harry Potter did). Highly recommended.
This is a terrific book, well written and well read. It was an interesting and very different story. I never guessed where the story was heading even right up to the end. Really odd but in a good way.
I thought this was well written and well read. It wasn't as I expected at all. It was odd to feel such sympathy for a man who practices polygamy which I think goes to show how well written it was. I loved how the story from told by different characters. There were some interesting twists and turns. It is a great book, a terrific summer holiday read.
I loved this book. I thought the main character would drive me nuts but some how I fell in love with him. The story is original, moving and powerful I would not hesitate to recommend this book. The narrator is great. I would listen to this story again and that is high praise from me.
I enjoyed it because my expectations were low and it was just as I expected. However I don't plan to continue with the series. There was too much gratuitous violence for my taste. That isn't a criticism but more of a personal choice. It has been a while since I read or listened to this kind of book and just thought I would give it another try. However the story was interesting and kept me till the end.
This was an amazing book. Very powerful. The story had potential to read like a soap opera and to be honest I was nervous buying it, not sure it was my kind of book. But it surprised me. I really enjoyed it. It was well narrated and the story was interesting and dealt so well with such a difficult subject matter. Highly recommended.
I read this book years ago and wondered if it still felt as jolting as it did the first time and it did. Claire Danes is wonderful as the narrator. It is a very powerful and troubling tale. I will definitely listen to this again in the future. Highly recommended.
I don't know how much of this story I believe but I really enjoyed it. I think there is grain of truth in it all but completely exaggerated. But that's ok. Still a lot of fun.
I didn't finish this book, it was pretty terrible and I just figured it wasn't worth my time. It was a freebie from Audible so it didn't bother me. It is a shame that Audible seems to offer such utter crap for their "thank you gifts". I remember struggling to pick one and settled on this. In the last round I didn't even bother.
I enjoyed this book. It is an interesting story, told well by Tina Fey. Since I am outside the US I actually have very little knowledge of her work, (I am not a TV watcher) but I still very much enjoyed her story.
I didn't find this book to be anything special but was still enjoyable. Very predictable for this genre. It was much too long and could have easily been edited down by about a quarter with no loss to the story. The lead character is unrealistic and not particularly likeable but the rest of the cast made up for it. Some stronger female characters would have been nice, especially ones who main valve was not their beauty but then that is predictable too. I plan to read the next book so I guess that is a recommendation.
