Loved the way Nora Roberts used the artist talent of the male lead to strengthen the relationship with Cilla , so many clever references and the comic book twist was enjoyable.
Say something about yourself!
yes, I'll listen to this again, mostly because of Ford. Loved the graphic novel aspect. Very enjoyable.
I'm glad that I did not let the poor reviews of this narrator stop my from giving this a listen. I had NO problem with her as a narrator.
First of all, I have to say this narrator is just plain awful. I almost didn't want to continue because it was too painful to hear her read. Get better narrators Audible!!!!
To add to the point of how terrible she is, my ipod crashed and I had to reboot it, thereby losing my place in the book. It took forever to find where I was, because every stop I made, sounded exactly the same as the other areas. The narrator should listen to the narrator of Middlesex, that guy knew how to narrate! You knew exactly who was speaking, just by his tone and manner of speaking. This one terrible.
I used to be a Nora Roberts fan, but I think this will be the last book I buy. Way to predictable and it follows a formula she has for every book. I called the evil person right at the beginning. You shouldn't be able to do that. But I have read so many of her books, that now I know exactly who it is. Boring.
This book is OK. I agree with several others, that the home remodeling is pretty detailed, but that is what defines the main character. My biggest issue is with the narrator. Right from the start, the way the narrator spoke reminded me of someone. And then, wham it hit me...she speaks just like Captain Kirk (William Shatner) on Star Trek. She reads with fast bursts and long pauses. It's hard to get into the story, when you can't get over the voice.
I have nothing else to say other than Nora Roberts writes in a way that once you get into the book you just don't want to stop listening!
I usually listen in the car, but when it comes to the last hour or so I become most unsociable and listen whilst sitting at home and lying in bed!!
Nora Roberts continues to put out some of the best books I have read and Tribute is no exception. The story line is wonderful as are the characters. The book keeps you guessing up until the end! Hope to see many more as good as this one.
This book was disappointing in many ways. I think Nora should take a break and quit spitting out so many books. The main character is so self-depricating I want to slap her. And she complains too much of what she didn't have growing up. It's frustrating.
Another point of frustration has nothing to do with Nora Roberts and everything to do with the narrator. I live in the south, have always lived in the south, and we do not have accents like this woman employs. The hero of the story sounded like a pompous dandy, not a southern good ole boy that you'd want to have an affair with. We do NOT sound like that down here in the land of Dixie. The entire book, read by this narrator and combined with Nora's lack of compelling style, makes it seem like a really bad episode of "Dallas".
