not particularly interesting or well written; unbelievable storyline; don't waste your time; verey hard to get through
Don't waste your time on a thin, predictable plot involving characters that are unbelievable, and I don't mean unbelievable in a good way. I hung in there, hoping the book would redeem itself. No such luck. The "twist" at the end is so improbable that it's laughable. Gimme a break!
Just the right mix of characterization and action. Excellent reading makes it a joy to listen too. Hated to turn it off when I had to leave it for awhile.
The story was decent enough but I could not stand the narrator. Her character portrayals were annoying to no end. In one case, there is a student in her law class from Southern California. The narrator makes him sound like a stony loser from So Cal. Very cliche. This was one of many examples. And Nat's brother...ANNOYING!
This was THE worst book I have ever "read"! As much as I enjoy description and find it neccessary for reading, this book was maximum overkill. I found myself eye-rolling and sighing every few minutes. But, after donning boots and a shovel, I dug my way to the storyline. The story of a meek, frail, spoiled adult female who still allows her father, brothers and boyfriend to control her life. I was insulted and disgusted with the portrayal of this "lead female heroin". When she finally decides to stand up for herself, she decides to run away from the law!? I don't find that to be very brave. I admit that she experienced her fair share of tragedy, and I can't say how I would react in her shoes. But, dumping my boyfriend, screwing my colleague and becoming a fugitive of the law wouldn't be at the top of my list. I think the author concentrated too much on portraying her research material rather than creating an edge of your seat storyline. And the "big twist" at the end? About as twisty as a strait line. Please, if you are a strong willed, independant female with strong convictions, do not torture yourself with this lousy book. "Daddy's Girl" will make you want to reach into your listening device and strangle her.
I really like the main character Nat, although I really didn't understand the whole "Nat" with a "G".
I have read a number of books by Lisa Scottoline, this was not my favorite.
I like Bennie the best.
I did want to listen to the entire book quickly, but the ending where she went to the prison was too far and unrealistic.
I did like that Angus was arrested at the end.
Fun easy fast paced story. Being married to a law professor I could see & predict several turns until the end I did NOT see coming....Great weekend or commuters read-you want to keep coming back to see just HOW it ends!
Probably not since there are so many other authors to choose from.
I was not interested in the main character at all. In my opionion, the author did a poor job of making her a likeable character. I need to be able to like / connect with the main character(s) in books and movies. If that isn't the case, I quickly loose interest.
No. However, I might accidentally since I likely will not remember her name. She did not leave a good impression as far as narrating ability. (Unlike Ralph Cosham, the narrator of Louise Penny's Three Pines series which I have recently been listening to. He does a great job.)
I could not bear to listen beyond the first few chapters. I hoped it would get better but eventually gave up.
