Very "tinny". Sounds like you are down in a can listening. Jack Sondricker's voice is great, bordering on a Paul Harvey type commentary. However the recording is at a very poor bit rate......Why?
Is it that hard to get a good recording in this day and age? Or was it cheaply done? I was very excited to see this book now done unabridged on Audible, but I am so disappointed in the sound. There is some improvement on the pc over the Android phone or Kindle.
Come on Audible, we are on your format now because of failing eyesight. The sound is everything!
That's debatable. I think if you identify with abuse, it may be of interest. It did not hold my attention.
There really were very few moments of interest for me. Basically a dysfunctional family all the way around. The book went nowhere.
Nothing really stands out. That is why it was a tad humdrum.
Be careful of how I treat my family???
It's a shame that the mom never really took responsibility for all her drug use. She, too, neglected her family because of her failure to address the issues in a healthy way.
Susan Bennett is a wonderful narrator.
When she figured things out and cut off the transfer of the property.
Not in particular
Great story, but a little bit too predictable early on.
No one I know.......
Not tried to make a love story out of porn?
I read this based on others' reviews. Did not work out too well for me.
What can I say? This book is just porn. Nothing of interest here. Shallow story that never really gets any better.
Besides the fact that it was just porn, you only get half a book. Thinking that it might pan out in the end, you reluctantly buy the other half of the book, only to realize, it too is just ridiculous porn. I really don't mind adult themes, if there's an interesting story to go with it.
The men's voices just aren't that great read by a woman trying to make it sound husky.
All of them
The author was very clever splitting the book in half to sell you 2 books. The first book has no real focal point, no conclusion. You have to buy the 2nd half to "finish" the story.......and even then, it's so anticlimactic......just dumb, dumb, dumb. I don't know maybe you need to buy a 3rd book to get anything out of it......not.
This was my second book by Liane Moriarity. The first was a nice read entitled THE HUSBAND'S SECRET. I liked the story and loved the epilogue. A very nice change of pace. However, this book was droll. All through the book I waited on the A-HA moment that would turn it from humdrum into "Boy I never saw that coming!" It never happened. It reminded me of ORDINARY PEOPLE. The story was just ordinary.
I don't recall anything that stood out.
So many of the narrator's words sounded like she was saying something different. Madison=Medicine......etc. This happened a lot. It was noticeable to friends and family as well. I would like my credit back.
I did not read the print book.
When she experienced her parents reactions.
The second awakening.
It was compelling, but I enjoyed piece mealing it.
At first I had a hard time getting into the story. But once I accepted it for the old timey radio broadcast it was performed as, I kind of enjoyed it. After all, at $3.95, the price was right!
One of the most drawn out, uninteresting, vulgar pieces of trash ever written. What a waste of time and money. A very ludicrous story line. When his wife and daughter-in-law said the book needed trimmed down a lot, they were not kidding. So many characters that had so much detail that never meant anything in the book. A ridiculous story with an unbelievable journey to nowhere. Could hardly force myself to finish this book, and yet I kept rereading parts to try to understand. There really is no understanding. If you liked the Lost TV series, you might like this nonsense. It is not even a reasonable allegory to anything. I hope I can get a refund. I cannot believe there is so much difference that I actually prefer the TV series.
What is missing from this story is any semblance of Patterson's writing. It reads like a 13 year old girl composed it. The entire story seems to be missing something. Maybe a book for 10 yr olds, if they can handle the subject matter???
Of course Stephen King has a great voice and reading style, but this essay falls very short of being complete. He mentions several things early on that he fails to follow through on. He is misleading in that he draws the reader in by leadng you to believe that it just might be an unbiased essay. It could not be further from the truth. Before you reach the end he shows a very mouthy liberal bias. His essay becomes very foul mouthed and then it becomes hard to really listen to it. Yes, Mr. King, you should stick to your fiction books.......and clean up your potty mouth. The essay was almost worth the 69 cents I paid for it.
