This is the first book I've read by this author. I'm glad I discovered him. The Rutledge detective is a troubled, but effective officer. There is a story (the detective's) within the story (the murder) and it takes different twists and turns pointing to possible suspects. The narrator does a great job in the telling.
Never read the print addition, but the audio was great!
one of my favorite moments is the joyful reaction of the marooned astronaut to the space vehicle left on Mars and another is the reaction of the scientist, Kapur, when he discovers that an astronaut was left on Mars alive.
This was the first time to hear this narrator and I thought he did a great job.
Stranded on the Red Planet
Loved the humor and tenacity of the main character.
in first part of the story, I thought the main character, Henry, was the "bad guy, but my view changed. A tangled, but interesting story.
The way it led the reader through the story. I kept changing my view of Henry.
He shows the reader about Henry's life and relationships in the present and also gives information about his past, that lends some understanding to his actions. During all of this his life is unraveling in dangerous ways. This made for an interesting story.
Nothing!, Great narrator!
Maybe, it was a fun book.
Yes, I think I would try another book. Sometimes the chemistry is a little too much. I would like to see more emotion from the family.
She is a great narrator who puts life into the story and it's characters.
The playing of her mother's favorite song at the funeral was touching.
Nothing, it is typical Bosch. I don't know how he keeps a job sometimes.
The plot seemed too familiar. I understand why his new partner doesn't like the way Bosch operates.
Great job at changing the voices so I knew who was who.
Yes, I enjoyed listening.
I thought the narration was very good. I have not read the print version.
I liked Hezekiah's grandfather. He did some evil things, but then repents and does what he can to help Hezekiah and to obey God.
I liked the part where Hezekiah and his grand father are reunited after long separation.
The grandfather was one who had failed his family, himself and his God. But his relationship with his grandson was restored after his relationship with God was mended.
I thought the author did a good job of portraying what Mary thought of the claim by the public health officer that she was a carrier of Typhoid. She was stubborn and in denial about it. Yet at the same time I felt sorry for her.
I was shocked at her complete denial of her part in putting people at risk. The description of her cooking at a bakery and in the hospital, tasting food and such was scary.
Very good! Really enjoyed her various accents. Each character was well represented.
I would like to take Mary out to dinner. I would like to hear what she understood about Typhoid and what she had been told by the health authorities and doctors. I would like to give her other examples of people with the same problem and some positive coping examples.
I didn't realize how dark this story would be. I couldn't finish it.
I don't care for the detective D.D. 's character. The other plots were too depressing.
The narrators's did well.
I would rate as a 4.5 out of 5.
The description of the injuries to each family member was hard to hear. As was the reports by physicians on Jen's extensive brain injuries. There were many moments that touched my heart. Jen has an amazing family, friends and support from the church. Acts of love and perseverance by her father & mother while recovering from their own injuries is very moving. The Dad carried coffee upstairs each morning to his wife, while walking with a crutch & dealing with chronic pain. Her mother's perseverance & selfless care and some of the emotions she shares in her journey. The amazing prayers and spiritual insight that Jen shared with others after the accident. This book amazed me by consistently praising God in the midst of so much suffering. It is a message of hope.
I thought it was Jen's mother telling the story. Enjoyed it!
Courage in the midst of suffering.
Yes, it's a fascinating story from history. It gives two perspectives and gives a glimpse of the life of the pilots on each side.
When the american bomber is helpless & meets the German up close and personal.
No, I've never listened to this narrator before, but really enjoyed his performance.
Unexpected deliverance made possible by an enemy.
The story is intriguing as it takes the reader from London to Australia. A young woman, Beatie, gets involved with a married man and leaves with him for Australia to escape his wife. The book starts with the difficulties Beatie faced and then moves to Emma in the the future. Emma is a 30 year old ballet dancer who as a career ending accident. As the book moves back and forth in time showing connections to the characters and telling two stories, it's really hard to put down. I also love listening to this narrator who brings so much to the story. I'll be looking for more books from this author.
I liked the character, Emma, as she is the one gathering the clues.
The narrator changes her accent and tone in such a way that you feel as though you are listening to a play. I also just like listening to the Australian accent. It's beautiful.
If I could rename the book, I would call it, Beattie's Secret.
