The story may have held my interest better if it had been about half of the length.
I do prefer non-fiction, However, "Gone With The Wind" is an all time favorite. This book simply fell way short of expectations.
I don't care for a female reader attempting a male voice, or male attempting a female voice. Just forget about the attempts at accents and gender.
I was very disappointed in both the slow moving story line and the audio reading of this book.
this is a very interesting story, no boring spots
I likes the unpredictable interaction of the characters, it kept my interest
no, but it was enjoyable
the price of justice
this is the first book of three, which was not disclosed, the middle book is not available on audible. try it, not War and Peace, but very good
Yes, and I already have. As soon as I finished it I wanted to start from the beginning to hear the story again once I knew the full details.
Mary and Ollie, Both leaped out of the stereo for me. I didn't care much for Percy.
Mary, by far. I felt her voice matched the character flawlessly.
Yes, but it was far too long to do so.
I had previously listened to Tumbleweeds, and have always enjoyed Southern fiction in general. I liked Roses much more, it was less predictable and more rich in it's storytelling. I especially enjoyed that the book spanned such a large scale of time and included a lot of historical details. Well researched, well written, beautifully narrated. 5 Stars from me.
ENJOYED LISTENING DIDNOT WANT IT END NARRATOR WAS CLEAR AND MADE IT VERY ENJOYABLE RECOMMEND IT HIGHLY
At first, I thought this was just going to be a take-off from Gone With the Wind. But it turned out to be a good story. Good narration.
This book is awful. Maybe Coleen Marlo is a good narrator and she got an awful product to narrate, but her southern drawl of men and the women, is grating...but then so is the dialogue. Unless you want a predictable droning story of Texas cotton and rich folk, avoid this book. This is one I'll delete from my iPod without finishing.
I had such a hard time getting past the terrible "Texas" accent that I couldn't enjoy the story of the book. Also, the sound was low and difficult to hear even though I had my device at full volume.
