This was a really good book the only issue I had was the music between the chapters what were you guys thinking other than that a fantastic performance five stars but for the music
As much as I love the story and I love a repeat listen to catch missed pieces or to take in the story better I would only be able to listen again if the music had been taken out!
The characters voices, emotions, inflections ect were all done so that she brought them individually to life making you feel what they felt and see what they saw at the same time having them flow and work together so smoothly.
Yes! It was a wonderful story & performance just to bad it was over-shadowed by the intrusive music!
As I've mentioned once or twice already this is a great book and wonderfully read by both Brown & King but would be so much better without the music! At the very least remove the music that drowns out narration and keep it to before/after chapters!!! I love audio books not only having a collection of apx 100 on audiable & other sites but a large disc collection as well. This is the first time I've come across a audio book that I liked enough I didn't want to stop listening at the same time being so irritated I wanted to turn it off and go get a paper copy which I would have done if I could still read for long periods of time before getting eye strain
I've always enjoyed reading this book and enjoyed the audio book just as much. However the voice for Norman was awful. He sounded very wimpy, whiny and nasal; not at all like the big, burly, tough cop he's supposed to be. The voice for Rosie was perfect.
I love classics and non-fiction!
Loved it. Awesome book that I listened to all night and all day. Enjoyed it very much. A bit crude at times. but that's standard King. I think this is one of his best.
I really like this book. Any woman who has been in an abusive relationship will love this book. You go girl. It is truly amazing how he can capture both the male and female sides of his characters. Not in just this book, I have been amazed reading and listening to his books and how he knows so many emotions and actions of every kind of person, male, female, child or elderly.
