Yes, but not an audio book!
This is a great book, but I think it would be more powerful had I read it. The ideas they shared would have me thinking so much that I would then miss the next topic. I will pick up a copy in the library to take my time with it.
I started Unhinged immediately once I finished Splintered. It was good and exciting.
The Wonderland backdrop allows for great imagination.
Yes - but I have to sleep sometime!
The story looses steam as the focus turns more to the Al/Jeb/Morph relationship and less to the action of Wonderland.
The great story that started was watered down and overshadowed by the "love triangle". I found myself so annoyed by Alyssa and her "two sides are torn" crap that I was disappointed both guys didn't dump her and run away together. THAT would have been a fantastic ending.
I was frustrated. For a series that starts with a girl growing up with a mom in an insane asylum, to just have the end wrapped up in a big pretty "happily ever after" bow was disappointing.
Loved her voices and she read with a lot of personality.
No - they would turn the movie into a "Twilight in Wonderland" and I would avoid it.
Highly recommend the first book, enjoyed the 2nd book, 3rd I finished because I am not a quitter.
I would recommend this to everyone. A great collection of stories that are funny and thought provoking.
I liked the red shirt that kept popping up, and little details like that that make me feel like BJ and I are sharing an inside joke.
The heaven story. I have talked about that story to so many people already. It paints such an intriguing scene.
I laughed. I thought about it when I wasn't listening to it.
Great collection. Get it and listen when you need something light and funny.
I really enjoyed this book. This is a great escape book to listen to.
The Woodcutter, of course! He was everything a protagonist should be. Strong, silent, smart, loyal.
The Queen. her voice oozed evil.
Part Dark Forest, Part Fairy Tale hero, all Woodcutter.
I enjoyed the story and how it pulled in other fairy tales, some were quite subtle and I found myself racking my brain to remember how the fairy tale ended so I could try to guess what the Woodcutter would do. Made me go back and read a few, especially the 12 Dancing Princesses.
Listening to the Beast talk was horrible. I made it through the first Beast part only to be lulled by a painful item by item inventory of a closet full of tea pots, then I thought I accidentally bought a cookbook, since I now have a recipe for undercooked oatmeal. The final straw however was when our heroine looked through a peephole, saw a man on the porch, got glimpse of a tattoo, and that was enough for her to declare it a "High Quality Tat" . I turned it off at that point, before he kissed her "thoroughly" as I would bet $1000 happens at least once in this book.
Luckily I have several options.
When I turned off the book and turned on the radio,
All of them so far.
The accents and voices are great for immersing me in the stories.
This book's first half is almost painful. The characters are annoying at best - spoiled, selfish, and I had no love. But the second half makes up for it. Wow. the story had me in tears more than once, and I could not stop listening. I know this story will stay with me a long time. It makes me want to seek out more stories from that time and place.
This was one of the better books I have listened to. I was truly sad when it was over.
I liked hearing the rough side of Tina Fey. Hearing her struggle as she did, both with herself and with the world. I felt a connection.
She knows herself well! I loved her comments that were "off camera" so to speak, almost mumbled, but still perfectly clear. It felt like I was having a conversation with a lousy listener.
There was a scene with Oprah Winfrey and Tina is juggling a million things and Oprah comments on her schedule - Tina Fey says "When Oprah Winfrey thinks you are too busy, you REALLY need to look at your life".
I have heard that in my head DAILY since then! Love it!
Not a book if you want to hear Tina Fey do stand-up, but a great book to get to know her as a person. A funny, wonderful, smart, passionate, imperfect person.
