I was transported to India. To a time and place I've never considered. Utterly out of context and struggling to build meaning. So unusual. But oh my heart...the beauty of this prose! Allusion, simile, metaphor like a chanted, haunting refrain, lending structure and import to memory.

Not for the faint of heart or those reluctance to struggle for understanding, The God of Small Things will remain with you for a very long time.

A nice story, if a little predictable.

I enjoyed the story despite feeling a bit like Ms Robert's phoned this one in. My favourite parts were the interactions between Griff and Callie.

Beautifully written, warmly narrated, insightful.

This book is so very much better than I remember the movie being. Or, I am so much more ready for these words. Or, when the time is right, the message will be heard.

Fascinating biography of a woman centuries ahead

Centuries ahead of her time. Eliza Lucas Pinckney brought indigo dye production to South Carolina. This is a fascinating look at the life and mind of a woman who at 16 years old, took over the running of 3 plantations. Amazing woman! Excellent storytelling. Lovely narration.

Fantastic Book!

I could not put this book down. not only that, it inspired me to read more about Everest, learn about Everest, look at pictures and videos about Everest. It opened up a new world to me.

Well written. Well paced. Beautifully narrated by the author.

Nora Roberts has a talent for putting you in the middle of the action. I don't know how a real smoke jumper would feel, but to a person who can't imagine jumping out of a perfectly good airplane, much less into the middle of a raging fire, this story feels real. I will certainly think about the real smoke jumpers this fire season.

I enjoyed this book. The main characters are all ordinary people, which makes them relatable, who live in extraordinary circumstances.

Phil Gigante is one of my favorite male narrators. Each of his male characters have their own voice - different pace, accent, mannerisms - thatbrings each to life as individuals. The same is true of female voices, but sometimes the effort to differentiate comes off as too much "valley girl" and not enough smart woman.

Good opener to the series. I'll definitely continue with the rest!

Richard Armitage has the sexiest voice on Audible.

Loved it - pretty average storyline
Favourite part - you don't rean Lauren Blakely for anything but the sex scenes.

Need a fantasy lover fix? Highly recommend!

Liked it. Didn't love it. After the murder, I expected to jump ahead 10 or 15 years but that doesn't happen. The love match seems like a convenient plot detail more than a romance. There are some interesting details about rock and roll in the 60s to the 90s. it's good. Not gripping.

The narrator is probably a talented reader however her attempt at several accents falls flat at best. At worst, her voice becomes almost unintelligible and garbled. This would have been a better listen without the fake accents.

Another smart read from Any Weir

I really enjoyed this book! Jazz is a smart young woman with her heart and head in the right places even if she has a habit of poor life choices. Inlike most geniuses, she is thoroughly likeable. The cast of supporting characters are also real, likeable, and smart. My favourite thing about Andy Weir is his ability to write with such clarity of voice. He has the ability to create a plausible world, to back it up with science, and to take you along for a great ride.
