I found this audiobook in my Audible free options, and it was short, so I gave it a go on my way back from work. I feared it would be just another blind-date-happily-ever-after, and though it sort of is, I didn’t hate it. Good job, Falguni Kothari.
I didn’t think twice before buying this book, because obviously, Tom Hanks. Unfortunately, it is boring. Very boring. The stories are dull, lacking an edge to them and the narrative is too monotonous, almost robot-like.
But here’s a magical trick: try reading it in Tom Hanks’ voice. The effect is dramatic, I even bought the audiobook narrated by non other than Hanks himself. It actually put a smile on my face. 🙂
Damn. That was brutal in ways I can’t begin to describe. The kind of of books that leave you hiding in your room, because you would look so lame crying at your phone screen.
You venture into this story knowing full well how it ends (spoiler alert: they both die at the end), but when it comes, you’re never ready for it. No one is ever ready for death. And it broke my heart.
What would you do if you knew it was your last day to live?
Powerful. Vivid. Beautiful.
It’s been a very long while since the last time I couldn’t put a book down. Sanderson just knows how to “Pull” (pun-intended) you into the picturesque world of his.
There were times, however, when I thought I couldn’t see much into Kelsier’s character, but as it turns out, it was the very thing Sanderson intended.
I was a little annoyed by a few monotonous lines and some overused words, but meh, it’s nothing against the piece of art this book is.
