I laughed when I read someone's rating that the narrator's women's voices were screetchy. This guy should not do women's voices. It took a lot, and I mean a lot, of dedication to finish listening to the book. The only good thing is that the narrator for the other two books are done by different narrators.
This book would have been excellent if the sex scenes weren’t so boring. The plot, narration, and layout (except the sex scenes of course) were every convincing; but exactly what I expected from Nora Roberts. Her intimate moments are almost always PG.
Nora is such an outstanding and prolific author, that the quality and diversity of her work, never ceases to amaze.
This first book in the trilogy is deliciously suspenseful and quickly entices the reader to delve further and learn more about the blood brothers and the fate that awaits them and the women who love them, in Hawkins Hollow. A mix of legend, folk lore and an ancient evil combine with enough drama, passion and mystery to see you to the satisfying conclusion of the third book. Riveting!
LOVE Phil Gigante's voice! That man could read the phone directory as far as I'm concerned and I'd be enthralled! Brilliant execution, dramatic effects and passion!
This narator is really bad. He makes the women and the men sound stupid and brainless. I really regret buying this audio book because I am a faithful Nora Roberts fan.
Nora Roberts has a new fan in me. This book was excellent. I was sorry when the book ended. I immediately downloaded the next 2 books and can't wait for the story to continue.
made this painful to listen to at points, especially the uneven, ostensibly New York accent of one of the main female characters. Light entertainment otherwise, and would have gone down a lot easier with much less narrative dramatization. Audio publishers, please think twice about having male narrators enact the voices of women characters -- this one sounds like he's doing mock drag.
How can you comment on only one book when the trilogy is so absolutely amazing - you just HAVE to read all of them to be able to put them into a "story".
I downloaded Blood Brothers and half way through downloaded the other 2 - I got all 3 finished in 3 days! FANTASTIC!!
NO extra pieces, no fillers just non stop thrills and lives falling into place.
I loved these books and would recommend them to EVERYONE.
This is true Nora style!!
Fantastic Trilogy. I can't get enough of these three books, Blood Brothers, The Hollow, and The Pagan Stone. You'll want to hear them again and again!
