Doctor Sleep: A Novel | Stephen King
post image
Pickpick

The audio for this one was very good. I spent a large portion of Saturday and Sunday listening while doing housework and sometimes I‘d find myself just standing and listening. Even though I read The Shining five years ago, I didn‘t need a recap of the previous story to enjoy Doctor Sleep. This one kept me on the edge of my seat. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was my first Daniel Silva book and I enjoyed it. I did most on audio and the narrator, George Guidall, was excellent. The story was intriguing and the many characters were entertaining. The little bits of humor were a nice added touch since there were parts of the book that were a little intense. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This one was just ok for me. I did most of it on audio and while the narrator‘s voice was ok, I wasn‘t a fan of how she voiced the male characters. It was kind of annoying. But, as far as the story goes, it wasn‘t exciting enough for me. Maybe I‘ve been reading too many thrillers 🤷🏾‍♀️

So I can't decide if I want to give this 3.5 stars orf 4 stars. I loved the beginning and the middle but the end made me sad, dammit! I laughed a lot (and cried a little) and the audio was wonderful, so I guess I have my answer, 4 stars. It was very interesting reading a whole book from animal POVs! S.T. and Dennis are going down as one of my favorite animal duos. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Man, this one was good! The storyline was pretty terrifying but it was to be expected since it‘s a Karin Slaughter book. I really hope I don‘t have to wait another three years for the next book in the series. I love all the main characters, Will and his awkwardness, Amanda and her no-nonsense attitude, and Faith and her sarcasm.

Ahh so good! I read Illuminae over a year ago and loved that one and I think I might like this one even more. I hope Obsidio will bring this series to a satisfying conclusion. I ended up checking out the print copy from work because the format is so much better in print versus on my Kindle. The audio was wonderful too. I wasn't a fan of Hanna's audio voice but her character was kick ass. 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

I rarely read hard copy books but the format for this series is so fun, this time around I don‘t want to read it on my kindle. This is the second book of the Illuminae trilogy and the story is told through memos, video surveillance, chat logs, and more. The audiobooks has a full cast but I only listen when I‘m in the car. #bfc #bookfitnesschallenge #bfcr3
