I couldn't get through this one. Horrid.. No investment in the characters, which were way too many.. I was lost.
waste of credit
Book 1 Speaks the NightBird was so amazing and fully engaging, my expectations were the same for Queen of Bedlam. I was disappointed, it's half way through until you are introduced to the Queen of Bedlam, I never had a feel to where the story was going until half way through. I thought many times to put in to rest. however the narrator, simply sucks you into the period and makes up for what story didnt deliver. In the end I was pleased, but not to the extent of Nightbird.
I couldnt put this one down.. The dialog, period banter was amazing. I was waking up with a new accent...Narration was spot on, sucked you right into the time and story with ease.
The longest book in my library.. I didn't want it to end. I could have stayed with characters another 30 hours.
This was not my usual pick, I am not sure how I ended up with the purchase. But no dissappointement here.
Characters were living and breathing through the narrator.. amazing capture...I was sucked in.
I thought the carry over from The Shinning was brilliant. Danny did not grow up so glamourous, though not many characters of King do. I love the stories of the down-trodden, they always seem to come back to kick some ass.
This story was long but I listened in my car, on the treadmill, the grocery store.... you name it. Totally captivating.
It always goes back to the demons we carry... excellent....bravo....
I was hooked. At first, I didn't think it was my kind of "read", but it soon sucked me in and I loved the characters, the story was intriguing. The narration was amazing, I felt like a southerner... very charming touch ..
The narrator made this story, I was so sucked into all the characters. It was a very visual read, I could see the story unfolding as I listened...
Great book and listen.
What a mistake purchase. I didn't get through 10 minutes of narration and thought I was listening to my navigation lady voice. I was so put off my voice and lack of inflection and proper exclamations, I thought Angela (narrator) was going to tell me take the nearest UTurn....
Sorry, I no rating for story...
I literally could not stop listening to this. The story you know the ending to from the beginning, but somehow have hope for her from her dismal end. The story's performance is captivating, I was there right along with her clerks... Definate re-read....(Listen)...
I have only stopped 2 books in mid read (listen). This was one.
I write reviews because I find them very helpful when I shopping for new ones... I hope this one is helpful.
