No, I have managed to wade through two other books by Nora Roberts. Did not enjoy them.Three Fates was my third try. I gave up after 45 mins of listining. No more Nora Roberts no matter how cheap they are.
Something of Connelly, Kellerman, Patterson, Child, Macdonald. They are always good.br/>
Slow, boreing, sounds like she would like to be doing something else
I listened to the first 45 mins of that book 3 times and can't remember a thing about it.
Thank you for letting me voice my opinion
Yes, it had just the right mix of light hearted humor and excitement and romance.
Actually, the very first scene at the sinking of the Lusitania was the most memorable.
I liked both Tia and Rebecca. I could identify with both of them.
I chuckled throughout the book. There were times that I didn't want to stop listening because I wanted to hear what happened next.
I've always enjoyed Nora Roberts as an author. The chase in this story hinges on injured pride, obsession and greed. All the characters mature during the story. It's fast paced. My interest was piqued concerning the Lusitania. I enjoyed the historic event being brought back to the public eye. The performance did not have a natural flow to it, sometimes being stilted. I enjoyed this more as a "read," rather than a "listen."
Wrong question. It should will you listen to Three Fates again. The answer is yes. The reason is that it was an extremely enjoyable story and I believe that I'll get more out of it during subsequent listenings. While I don't listen to all of my audio books more than once I do listen to most of them more than once. Three Fated is a for sure re-listen-to audio book.
I liked and enjoyed all of the characters in this book but I especially enjoyed Rebeca.
I liked when Rebeca was introduced to the old man that had been the little boy saved by her ancestor.
I have quite a few audio books that were written by Nora Roberts and I've enjoyed them all a lot, but this book stands out from the crowd. Additionally in my opinion Bernadette Quigley did a great job narrating this book. I would heartily recommend this book to anyone that enjoys this type of romantic thriller / suspense.
Retired RN with 28 years in the operating room. An nurse educator specialized in surgical lasers and high risk equipment. Married for 36 years to my wonderful wife and mother of 3 men. Still waiting on the grand babies! While waiting, love to read & listen to books. I am a HUGE FAN OF AUDIBLE. COM!
Absolutely! In most cases audio books are better because of the voices put to the characters and if the narrator is really good, like this one, can also give the read a certain pace of excitement to the story.
Everything! What a great listen! I was particularly interested in the way the author used the factful sinking of a ship and family ties to weave an extraordinary story that keeps your attention to the end.
This is tough to answer, but probably the ending was the best.
Romantic and packed with action! Or, Who will win and who will lose?
I haven't written many reviews, but I was compelled to write one for this really fun and exciting book! Three Fates is one of the best of many, many books I have listened to.
At least as good.
The correspondence between Jack and his father, witty and brilliantly vocalized.
Her masterful command of dialects, her ability to shape shift between a man and woman's voice, the ability to maintain the gist of the narrative through the dialect. Without having to hear the speaker identified I could know who was speaking. And sometimes with three persons in the room speaking animatedly, this had to be difficult to switch.
Nope. I wanted it to last, and last, and last. Hated to come to the end.
Would love to pick up another just like it immediately. I liked Nora's Witness very much also but this one is the best.
Have re-discovered "quality time." Evenings listening to good books have replaced mindless tv watching. What a difference!
A different narrator. I think the basic story was interesting enough--unfortunately, the narrator was so insufferable, I finally quit trying to listen to the book. I'll try to find it in print at the library and finish it :-(
The narrator couldn't seem to decide on a voice quality--but even if one could manage to listen despite that, it was at times flat and monotonous (those were the best moments), other times she seemed to be trying to be--sexy? (It sounded like whining), cool or street smart? (it sounded scratchy), just reading? (it lacked variation in tone). Was she bored? Trying to sound sophisticated (if so, that was an "F" performance). I almost never stop listening to a book, even when the narrator lacks something. But I did stop this one (and left a mystery hanging without knowing what happened!). I asked myself why I was continuing to listen--feeling tortured--almost would have preferred chalk on a board. Sorry. I won't be listening to more books read by Ms. Quigley.
I love the story of the three fates, it's the first Nora I read and it made me fall in love with Nora Roberts books, but the narrator on this drove me crazy.
Don't they have editors? It's bad enough when some foreign or complicated word is mispronounced, I can even take when a place name is pronounced wrong once in a while. The main male character of this book is named Malachi, mal-a-ki to rhyme with eye, not Mal-a-kee to rhyme with key which is how she pronounces his name the entire book. It totally took me out of the story every time she said his name. It's specifically stated that all three of the siblings have biblical names, Gabriel, Rachel, and Malachi. Not very professional, I could get better off Librivox narrated by an amateur.
When you finally start to our heroine grow a backbone.
Horrible pronunciation, couldn't even get the main character's name right!
