awful to hear...just hard to imagie everything...voice was grooggy
book was fine...
whoever read this should practice
I enjoyed this enough to listen to it twice - and will probably do so again. Interesting characters and story with some different twists to make it enjoyable.
As I was listening to this book I kept thinking it sounded really familiar and then I realized that I've read it before. But, since I enjoyed it so much in print version I figured what the heck? I would go ahead and finish it in audio. I'm glad I did. It's not often I get to do an audio versus print comparison. I can honestly say that this book is great in either form.
Meg Galloway is a crazy bush pilot in Lunacy Alaska. Being abandoned by her beloved father and raised by an attention hungry, needy mother has made her very independent and pragmatic. To her things are black and white. You have a need? Fill it. Don't sit around feeling sorry for yourself and don't expect someone else to do it for you.
Nate Burke is the new Sheriff to Lunacy. Coming from the lower 48 he's an automatic outsider and not to be trusted. A few of the townspeople are friendly enough, but he has a long ways to go to prove himself. Now, a body has turned up and Nate is in the position to find the decades old murderer and no one in town is free of suspicion.
This book becomes interesting when Meg and Nate hook up as a couple and to solve the murder. Meg was a bit brash for my tastes in many scenes, but in others endearing. I think this is more of a personal taste. I like strong heroines, but not in your face. There were times when she was in your face. However, Nate and Meg played off of one another really well. Nate was a great hero. I loved just about everything about him.
Overall the book was between a 4 and a 5 .. but the reader was just a bit too vanilla for my taste. He had about 3 different voices and used them interchangeably in such a way that many of the characters sounded the same .. it was like he couldn't keep them straight himself so he just "winged" it and it was annoying. The interplay between the two main characters was fun and "real," and that was refreshing. Their ability to argue and stick together was nice. I haven't read much by Nora Roberts under that name, and I don't think I"ll be going out of my way to get more, but it was a pleasant interlude with a quick and colorful glimpse of life in Alaska.
one of the best
liked all of the main characters - their strength
enjoyed his voice - very compelling
the killing of the bear to protect the dogs
Yes because it keeps you on the edge of the chair. Kept you wondering as to the plot of the story.
Is when the Chief found out who the killer was and after him. Without anything getting in the way.
I liked the way he had different voices for each character.
Yes couldn't put it down. I would listen to it while working out at the fitness center.
I love Nora Roberts and she didn't disappoint with this one. Romance,suspense,humor and great characters. I love the descriptive way she writes.
I am not sure what it was about this book that I didn't like. I usually like Nora Roberts but couldn't get into this book. I made it about 1/3 into the book but I need to admit that I did not finish it. Could be good for someone else.
Someone who likes linear and shallow romance novels with a dull edge.
Anything NOT by Nora Roberts
No, but I liked his voice. He did a good job. It was the text that riled me.
I liked Nate, the one telling the story. It was the cheap stereotypical small town women that I found disgusting. I like most stories about Alaska, fiction or non-fiction. I could have kept listening if not for those slutty women. I don't think Nora did her research. I live in an isolated small town in Wy, and have never met a woman like that here, and per my reading, they aren't in Alaska either. Those kind of women are usually in big cities at cheap corner bars.
It was a waste of money.
