The second part I thought was much better than the first but it kept my interest and wanting to listen everytime I had a few minues. You do not know untll near the end what actully happened or "who did it" so that was great. Will keep it and listen to it again in the near future. It was Worth my credit and I finished it in less than 7 days!!!
Right from the beginning I knew I wouldn't be able to put this one down! I had just finished Smash Cut and this one was even better! And I love Victor Slezak's narrating.
The narrator's voice for Parker, the main character, was very good. The rest of the time he was quite monotonous and couldn't do a woman's voice at all. The plot was full of inconsistencies and became increasingly unbelievable as the book continued. It was a good enough page-turner, but not a great listen overall.
Thoroughly enjoyed this book, which I hate to admit, is my first Sandra Brown book. Incredible plot with many twists and turns; believable characters; and I enjoyed Victor Slezak so much that the next audible book by Brown ("Rainwater")I downloaded and am presently listening to had to be narrated by Slezak. He is excellent. This is a must read.
I listen to Audible books while commuting, doing housework, exercising and gardening.
The story line was very good- a book within a book, and interesting plot twists. But the dialog was so stilted and artificial, especially in the main "book". Part of the blame I attribute to the narrator, as his word emphasis contributed to the "just off" feeling.
I loved this book. I have not read a Sandra Brown yet that I didn't like but Envy is one of her best. I loved the characters and simply could not stop listening to it. Highly recommend this one!
this is the 2nd book of Sandra's that I've read and I've just purchased another because I can't get enough of her stories. I've been an insatiable reader all my life and these days the books that really consume me get harder to come by, however envy and chill factor have both done that. Keep writing Sandra.
