I still really like it. It's hard and sometimes difficult to listen to - there have certainly been several parts that made my stomach hurt--but I am still convinced it will a four star (potentially 5) book. Honestly, I think I like it more than 'Riding the Bus'. But we'll see, I'm about half-way through the audiobook now. And I liked Caleb's Crossing okay. It was a bit slow going - not a lot of drama or excitement, no big climaxes or anything. I'd put it at about 3 stars probably. (If I had to pick between that and 'Year of Wonders', I'd lean toward Wonders. :)
Hey there - I thought I'd pass along an early book reccommendation! :) I'm listening to ' They Story of Beautiful Girl' by Rachel Simon. She also wrote 'Riding the Bus With my Sister, which I think you and I both liked. Anyway, it's really good so far so I thought I'd tell you about it!
Don't you hate that when you finished reading a good book you don't know what you want to read. That happen to me after the help but i decided on Memoir of a Geisha I been wanted to read this book for a long time I hope is Good have you read this book before?? If you did please tell if is going to be a good book?? I trust your choices!!!
Hey K_stin I read the book as well Loved it! I want to see the movie too. Let me ask you have you seen how Shelfari has our friends list now next to the picture it says following I really don't get it am I following my friends or they following me??? I think some of my friends got lost in this proses because their is a lot of them I don't see their name in my friend list. :-(
This one has been on my 'to be read' list for what seems like ages! I loved 'People of the Book' and so put some of her other novels on my list. I commute about an hour each day for work (so I'm always looking for things to listen to) and I found this as an audiobook at my library. Brooks herself is the one reading, (totally random, but she sounds like an Aussie which I was NOT expecting). But I actually like it so far! Honestly, I find that sometimes I will be more apt to listen to a book - especially if I like the voice of the reader -- more than I might read it myself. I'll let you know what I think when I finish it!
Loved The Passage!!!! I felt the same way when I got to the exact point you are coming to. :) I wanted to see that first storyline keep going! But if you hang with it, I think you'll become just as invested in the next group of characters. I really hope you like it!
