Roberts clearly did some research in smoke jumping, but what she did with it left me wanting. It just wasn't as exciting as it should/could have been given the setting. The narrator did a good job though. A lesser performance might have made me quit the book before finishing it since it is way too long. The story (and main romance) just rambled on and on. Not recommended I'm sorry to say.
Listen again, I already have! Great story
The simplicity of the characters; not to many to keep up with.
Ella and Lucas, when they met.
Lucas for sure!
I listen to audiobooks when I drive and when I hike.
A really slow speaking narrator. It helped to put the book on 1.25X speed. At 1.25X speed it didn't put me to sleep, but isn't a book I'd recommend to anyone. The story just isn't that great.
I LOVE to listen to audiobooks - the Audible ap is by far the best thing that's ever happend to my iPhone.
At times I avoid book because I'm not particularly drawn to the topic - but after many good reviews and seeing the book turn up often, I'm persuaded.
Chasing Fire, like most of Nora Roberts' books, is a solid story line with passion and suspense built in. I enjoyed the characters and the narrator.
I really enjoyed the strength and confidence of both the female and male lead. I have a personal connection to smoke jumpers so of course it hit home there. But I really loved that how the two were brought together.
Her watching her father jump.
The fire scene's are great but her kicking butt at the bar worked for me!
Lead female. Not a dainty little petit buxom blond for once!
This was not Nora's steamiest book but that was kind of what I liked because the sex seamed a bit more plausible then some of her others, and I have read a lot of hers. Also this is a story that appealed to me personally. I really enjoyed it!!
The backdrop of jumping out of planes into forest fires was a new venue for me; coupled with murder, mayhem, lust and love you've got a winning formula. This was one of those books you simply cannot put down. Highly recommended to anyone that likes a good story with lots of intrigue.
Wow...if I had to pinpoint something in particular, I'd have to say the drama of fighting forest fires with an emphasis on those that jump from planes into the fires. That backdrop really added a unique element to an already fabulous story.
Rebecca did a great job of differentiating the characters. Also, her voice appealed to me and never got in the way of the story.
I definitely would have if I'd had the luxury of doing so.
I was totally consumed by the drama of the fire jumpers. Fascinating reading. Nora did an amazing job weaving the entire story around this original backdrop.
I would recommend this book to a friend.
The interaction of all of the characters was intriguing and intertwined. I especially liked how they developed and grew. The ending was a great surprise to me.
No I haven't heard her.
The ending was exciting. Also, when Ironman's girlfriend and daughter came to terms.
Overall, I found this to be one of the more interesting N.R. novels. I really liked the strong female lead and as always, just the right amount of humor. I listened to this audiobook over the course of a three day cross-country drive and it really made the trip more bearable. As I write this, I am trying to remember if I noticed anything about the narrator and interestingly, I don't. In my opinion, the narrator's voice and style should almost fade away so you can focus on and enjoy the story - Rebecca Lowman definitely did that. I would absolutely consider another audiobook with her narration.
So in short, good story and good narration.
I think the reason I enjoy listening to Nora Roberts is that whilst the romance is a key theme in the book her female characters are so strong in their own right and Rowan Trip was no different.
I have not read the print version of Chasing Fire but the audio version was outstanding! I loved all the twists and turns the story took and the narrator was very good.
Gulliver was my favorite character because he was such a calm and steady man in the book. Very trust worthy and reliable and honest. He made me laugh and his character made this book a great listen.
My favorite scenes were the scenes with Rowan and her father. They were so well written I could get lost in the story. Hours passed like minutes and since I listen while working at my second job (cleaning offices) I loved the distraction!
Rowan's father. Because I never had a dad like that and I would want to pick his brain a bit and seek advise from him if he were real!
This book had everything. Romance, mystery, and action. I couldn't ask for more!
