Wedding Dress, The - Audiobook
Wedding Dress, The - Audiobook
by Rachel Hauck
Edition: Audio CD
Prix : CDN$ 20.78
12 used & new from CDN$ 18.67

3.0 étoiles sur 5 So so, April 21 2013
There is something that The Wedding Dress has and it’s not very common: two characters speaking a century apart; and there is no indication of connection or time separation, so a bit of suspense because some things do not fit, and you are wondering how and when the two characters are going to meet.

The idea of a wedding dress sewed with gold thread being passed on from generation to generation and fit for different shapes of bodies is also endearing.

It’s an okish book not badly written with a few points for some originality but that’s all. Rachel sometimes forgets (or maybe just takes advantage of the reader not being educated yet on the subject – which infuriates me, never take your reader for a fool, assume he/she is at least as smart as you are) that half of her characters live at the beginning of the twentieth century; the details are lacking or seem incongruent and many scenes would have been so much brighter with some research to back them up.

Conclusion: easy to listen and well read, nice chatter in the background sort of writing, “cheaper by the dozen”…

4.0 étoiles sur 5 These trays are great, March 26 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These trays are great. My only regret is that you can't put too much material in one tube and sometimes you need to use 2-3 tubes for your little stock.
You cannot really stack the trays together as shown in some images, but as far as visibility goes, they are very handy.

I use the pins to pin the jewelry in boxes, especially when shipping is involved, so far they did the trick. Price was not bad either.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 So so read, March 26 2013

Our ten year old read it and liked it but I read along sometimes and compared to the classics, it is not as fast paced, nor adventurous, actions are dragged along chapters on end...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Light and easy to use, March 26 2013
Light and easy to use they are perfect for almost any type of light earrings. You can't pair them with high end materials but I do not think they were meant for that. Price is also not bad at all.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Smaller in reality, March 25 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They are very beautiful, great quality, but rather small, you end up using them for earrings rather than necklaces; trouble is that there are no two of a kind...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Beware of size, March 25 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
They are a lot smaller than I actually thought they would be, they do not look 8x10mm, more like 5x8mm. Otherwise very good quality.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An audiobook to remember, March 25 2013
This review is from: Little Bee: A Novel (Audio CD)
Little Bee is about a Nigerian refugee. There are two main characters telling her story: herself and a British woman, Sarah. Each has a chapter and the chapters intertwine sequentially.
I've seen reviews with complaints, I guess no one was actually talking about the audiobook which I found fascinating.
I was happy for the bookmark feature as this book has tremendously beautiful metaphors that I wanted to remember. It is well read and well written. It generates feelings, emotions; it makes you laugh, it makes you cry. If this is not great literature then I do not know what is.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Funny and cute, March 16 2013
I have read all Kinsella’s books. Even the ones before she started using the pen name Kinsella.

This one compares with the Shopaholic series. Finally. Bubbly funny, upbeat, anchored in reality, I could not stop listening. I have fallen asleep on it (that’s how far I took it) and got a bit sad when it ended, you do tend to finish a book a lot faster when you just have to listen to it. I saw comments about the footnotes being annoying: if you get the audio book (which is read to perfection- I listened to hundreds so I know) Jayne Entwistle reads them so cutely, I actually loved the idea.

The ending was not extraordinary but not bad either. This is not a book that will enrich your vocabulary, make you feel smarter or remember some essential truth that would guide your life choices, but it is a super amusing story that will make you feel lighter and happier. You will remember that everything can change any time and everything can get infinitely worse or better in a matter of minutes.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I finished listening - Audiobook review, March 12 2013
This review is from: Rescue Me (Mass Market Paperback)
Everything about this book is cheap: language, plot, the way too frequent love making scenes, descriptions... It is well read if you need background noise when cooking or cleaning, but careful about who is listening because besides terribly lame the content is definitely not PG. I was not going to finish listening but I did and the book was just as predictable as I thought, no twist of events, no miraculous save.
