I love books!
Yes, this Scottolini thriller had plenty of twists and turns and it was an enjoyable listen. If anything I'd like it to have been longer, more character development. But, it's interesting listening to books from a female perspective, it's good having them be strong. I was sad to realize the final twist in this one was true. It must be fun being an author deciding what to do with your characters. I hope Lisa's students appreciate her!
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!
The plot was simple, story moves at an okay pace. The narator does a great job with the voices, but the story is not engaging enough to hold your interest tightly.
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!
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.
Was looking for books narrated by Barbara Rosenblat... she is always great...and the tale was interesting...good listen... well worth the cost.
I love the distraction of audiobooks as I drive and can make my way through almost anything - and have enjoyed other books of Lisa's very much. This book however, proved my most difficult task. For the first couple of hours, nothing seems to happen. there appears to be no point to the story, no direction.. the setup is far, far too long. The main character is really tough to like- makes ridiculous decisions and allows herself to be pushed around by everyone.
The story is resolved with what I am sure is meant to be a clever ending but felt tacked on and incomplete.
