The Planets Did Not Shine
A young - middle aged woman.
I received a free copy of this audiobook in exchange for a honest review.
I really liked the title and front cover of this book. It looked great. I should not have judged it by the front cover.
I found this novel really confusing. A lot of it I'm just sitting here thinking "why would you do that?" or "where did this author get this idea from?" Truthfully, it feels like a mishmash of multiple genres which don't gell together very well.
Also, the narrator is totally the wrong person for this novel. I feel like a younger woman would have suited this novel a lot better than Don Foote, who reads quite slowly and sounds completely out of place with the novel. Especially as its written from a woman's perspective.
Be careful who you drink
I eceived a complementary copy of The Planets All Shone, from the publisher, author or narrator, via Audiobook Boom, in exchange for an unbiased review. I had no idea what to expect...
A woman on her way to give a sales presentation drinks a bottle of soda before realising it wasn't hers - and finds herself with two unexpected companions: one holding a gun and the other inside her and wanting to get out. Circumstances direct that they have to run and so meet up with others from the woman's family.This is a short, easy listen book, with lots of surprises and disfunctional characters. If you are looking for reality, forget it. If you want something to zip through your mind, turning it upside down and inside out for a while, look no further
Great fun, all wonderfully narrated by Don Foote, who's slow presentation gives extra speed to the story. His voice, too, just captures the strangeness of it all and the underlying irritation felt by just about everybody.
It is short and well read, it is humerous, fast paced and it is really quite crazy. A recommended read to really take you out of yourself
