Very slow moving, if I had borrowed this book from the public library I would have taken it back immediately but as I wasted 1 credit on it I kept listening just in case it got any better. It didn't, have now given up one third of the way thru. Big disappointment.
Narrator has pleasant voice.
Wish I had picked something else.
It has been one of my favorites. I loved the narrator and her male voices. They were so real. The story line was suspenseful, romantic, shocking, and thoroughly entertaining.
The ending and finding who the murderer was.
Her voices as stated earlier were superb. Her pacing, timing, and voice inflections were effective and kept me entertained.
An emotional rollercoaster. Every human emotion and fraility is portrayed...love, hate, lust, deceit, jealousy, greed, betrayal, sympathy, empathy all wrapped up in one.
A very good audiobook that you won't be dissappointed with!
While the narrator has a nice voice and reads well, what she's reading is basically crap. The plot had the potential to be good, but the author created a main character with, well, NO character: she's as interesting and tiresome as a wet kleenex. I think the author's intent was to create a character that you could "feel for" and rally around, but she failed.
I got this one in the sale bin-- and it shows.
I generally deplore abridged books but I'd have taken the scissors to this unabridged one in a heartbeat. For characters built up to be intelligent, they sure had idiotic inner dialogues and rediculous assumptions about each other. It was writtin like a soap opera in that one could skip an entire week of episodes (or whole chapters in this case) and still know what's going on due to endless repitition and mussings of each character over the same scenes.
Interesting book. Very typical of many societies where protection of the family name is important no matter what must be done to protect that name. What goes on in the palatial home stays in the palatial home.
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
a very good read, or rather listen, loved the story line as well as all the characters. Love most of the books by this author, she as never let me down yet. When shopping for a new novel I'm a;ways looking for works written by her. The narrator was very good as well.
I enjoyed the book, however, this is the first romance novel I have ever purchased and was a bit surprised by the sexual nature of it. I probably will not purchase any romance novels in the future but I found this one interesting.
I really liked this book when I read it. The narrator is okay and the beginning is a bit slow, but I loved it from about 1/4 of the way straight to the end.
