An interesting twist to the "body snatcher" motif, but that wasn't enough to keep the story above three stars. It eventually took on the characteristics of a bad chick flick..."let's all discuss our feelings for the next ten hours". Also, the narrator apparently did not know that a Spanish "ll" has a "y" sound (the cholla cactus is not pronounced "cho la", but "choy ya".
It presented some interesting ideas; it was a slow listen.
Not unless they've been bad...Christmas season and all that.
Several narrators read
Maybe, it had some interesting concepts.
Took much longer to get through than planned...I now know how members of Lyle Lovett's song "Church" felt while waiting for the sermon to end.
Teenage girls...under 14
Someone who can portray a young girl's voice without the whining.
Sometimes new ventures don't work out...keep exploring.
Most of us know people are crazy, this book helps us to index their irrationality.
Too much political pontification. The book took an interesting subject and beat the life out of it.
Pink cuts deeply into the meat of the education problem; it helped get me off my butt to change the way I teach.
Well researched and written as an interesting tale of the time. Looking forward to Offley's next update on the incident as more information is available.
A good long book in the series.
This book (like the 1st of the series) was tedious. Having invested time on the first novel, I decided to give the 2nd tome a chance...how bad could it be...really bad. I like long stories, but this was awful. Stupid me, I'll probably listen to the last book in the series...good money after bad. It's an addiction, and not a good one like chocolate, more like cigarettes...you don't like them, they're not good for you, but you keep smoking. Please,
Fantasy is not usually my favorite genre, but I needed a long novel for travel...and found that Mistborn Book 1 was not bad. I'm looking forward for Book 2.
Although some parts should have begun in the Navy tradition of all "sea stories" ("Honest, this is no ____ "), the book kept me interested. It was reasonably true to the events, and bravado aside, was a good first hand perspective.
