I am very picky with audio books, as they are harder for me to get interested in than reading a book. This story grabbed me with the first sentence, and kept my attention through the whole story.
Too much little details in the first 6 hrs, I kept losing interest had to re-start the book several times. The last 6 hrs were very good, I even cried..
Mary Stuart Masterson did an excellent job of narrating. It was seamless and made the story truly come alive.
Ellen Gleeson was tenacious. She wouldn't give up until she learned the truth no matter how many obstacles she had to overcome.
She's superb with the voices. She makes it easy to visualize the characters as she narrates.
Yes, when little Will, injured and frightened was pulled away from the only mother he ever knew.
I think this was the first Lisa Scottoline book I've read and I liked it! She had a way of keeping the reader interested and thinking.. "What would I do under those circumstances?". It's a tough situation, to choose between morals and selfishness, but I like how we followed her on the journey even though she didn't know if the outcome would tear her heart out. I loved the twists at the end. Just when you thought it was over and you dried your tears, there came another chapter, another layer. The narration was great and I came to love the little boy, Will and his "voice" in the book. There was a very real feel to this book, as if it could happen to anyone, and the way that everyday life was incorporated left you feeling like you were just walking along with her through her life. Rooting for her but also feeling for the parents who lost the little boy. If you are a mother, this book will have you thinking of your own children and how hard it would be to lose them and what lengths you might go to. It was a very insightful book that left me glad that I had discovered it.
I thought the book was a little long, but the story was captivating and somewhat believable. The narrator's performance was excellent, she captured each character.
