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!
Normally I read reviews and not write them. I feel obligated to write on this book mainly to warn future readers not to waste their money. Absolutely the worst book I have listened to in the four years I've been a member.
I highly recommend this book it was the best that I have read in a long time.I loved the main character and was hooked from the first page.This book made me laugh,cry and scared me out of my wits.
Was a bit disappointed with the end until I found out it had 2 more books to it.Can't wait to read the other books.Loved it!
I've read lots of negative reviews of the narrator and just wanted to go a little easy on him. It is quite difficult for male narrators with deep voices to do female voices; and he does end up sounding female, just not in an attractive way. He does the male voices wonderfully, though, and the dramatic effects for the scary parts made me jump out of my skin each time!!!
Having said that, I'm not crazy about the amount of fantasy in the story itself... I knew it was part 1 of a series (it says so in the title!) and now part of me is curious about what happens next but part of me really doesn't want to go through this experience again (maybe a non-audio book borrowed from the library rather than bought)
The romance part was OK though and the characters were interesting
The book was enjoyable, until toward the end, it went along, easy to keep up, interesting until about 5 minutes before the end, it was like she just decided there was too much left to say, she had too little time to say it and tada it was over. Of course I didn't know at the time it was a series, I am downloading the next book Pagan stone, and hopefully I will feel a little better about the beginning . . . and the ending.
This s the First of this authors books I have read, and really did enjoy it.
This may well have been a decent story but for the ridiculous narration. The narrator made the females sound stupid and vapid and the story sound lame and corny. He should stick to reading for mills & boon. He really spoiled the story.
