I already knew I liked Charles Martin. He is a very good writer. However when I started listening to "Unwritten" I almost lost interest after the first half hour or so.( Too many fishing references). Because I usually love his stories I continued on. I am so glad I did. This book really went over the top. The characters story were very different and you were not sure where the plot was going to go. The narrator was excellent. He really made you feel as if you were there watching in the background . I absolutely loved Sunday/Peter what a man! If you have never read Charles Martin this is where to start!
The story about WW2 Italy was interesting but the main character was rather weak (in my opinion) there were unnecessary descriptions of cruelty and an attack by a German soldier with too much detail .
I was not crazy about the narration. I would not get another book by this author or the narrator.
I have read other books by this author and liked them. I had never listened to one until now. The author narrated the book and he was awful. If I had never "listened" to a book before I would not want to again after this one, and I have hundreds of books in "my library" at audible. Maybe I did not listen long enough but the story which was supposed to be about "recovering Charles" seemed to dwell too long on playing musical instruments in Junior High . At Any rate the poor narration put an end to me "Recovering Charles" because I did not want to waste any more time on it .
I hatred the narration! The awful fake southern voices got on my nerves....listened to @ an hour before discarding....boring story
Never heard of this author but thought I would take a chance since the story sounded interesting....what a bore!!! The narration was very monotone too... Would NOT get another either by this author or the narrator.
I like most of Angela Hunts books (a few exceptions) This is a really good ,well researched novel about a girl born with Treacher-collins syndrome. (terrible facial malformations)
It sensitively deals with the struggle of a brilliant young girl ,isolated from the world for her entire life dealing with her handicap in a positive way. Suspense is provided by the fact that she works for the CIA as a computer analyst and gets caught up in international intrigue.
Great narration makes this book a winner.
Another delightfully funny and at times hysterical chapter in the life of my favorite senior citizen Julia Murdock and her faithful friend Lillian. I have read any enjoyed all the Miss Julia Books and highly recommend them to all... but especially to "women of a certain age"
I have always been fascinated by astronomy/cosmology but I am not conversant with physics. I found this nook by Kaku understandable and really enjoyable to a non scientist.
Pleasant narration too.
My Dad was on the Nashville from its commission until late 1940. I really enjoyed the detail about the ship and crew. As My dad never talked about his pre-war and war experiences this was a great find for me. The narrator was excellent and the story very smoothly written. Will share with my family.
I Just finished this thoughtful and riveting story of forgiveness .It is about a Bitter middle aged English Professor who is visited by her brothers daughter ... a homeless runaway named Carmen . She is a delight.This is a multi-layered story of family disfunction ,grudges and wrong choices.
Deeply analytical it comes to a wonderful climax of right choices and redemption.If I could give this book more than 5 stars I would.
The Narrator was perfect . I love Jamie Langston Turner .Her books are always well developed with wonderful characters . Try "Some Wildflower in My Heart" which is another amazingly well written story.
Marcia Willett writes a consistently good story and The Sea Garden no exception.. Her character development and wonderful story carry you along with her into a delightful spot in rural England .Her descriptions of the countryside make you fell as if you are there.
I will be looking forward to MORE of Marcia Willet in the future.
