Love books, all kinds, all shapes, all formats! Audiobooks have made my daily commute so much less stressful! Major fan of Audible.
The pure imagination it must have taken to come up with this plot & storyline. This is old school Nora Roberts - at her absolute best.
That her transition from male to female voices becomes invisible - you don't realize when she is making the voice changes because she is so good at distinguishing between the characters.
Absolutely - but I listen to audiobooks while commuting - so there is a pretty fixed amount of time I listen to audiobooks each week (but liek with this book - I find myself wanting to sit in the car until some "good part" of the book is finishing up before I turn it off!
Loved it! Love her more "romance novel" type books as well, but this book had a great plot, wonderful characterizations and lots of details that made you feel like you in the middle of that small Arkansas town - standing right next to the main characters.
Greater Seattle area real estate broker that loves to read...or listen.
Suspense, intregue, intellect, romance...The Witness is one of Nora Roberts best in my opinion - she rarely disappoints though.
This story is packed full of suspense. You'll have to continue listening to hear what happens!
Whelan is believable. She is able to 'be' the story's subject.
I can't imagine being raised like Elizabeth was - but sadly, the story IS believable...or is it sad? (Great entertainment.)
This one is going down in my "All Time Favs" list!
Yes, if they like a wonderful romance.
There were many, many wonderful moments. I just love a happy ending and great romance, along with lots of excitement and "bad guys" who get what they deserve.
It is one of Nora Roberts best.
Say something about yourself!
pretty good story line you just know something is going to go wrong and you keep listening to see what it is......
attn: spoil alert: i couldnt believe after all that had happened and at the point when she testifies and what happens afterwards i cried
It's one of N.R. At her best, the suspense, the plot, it could have bordered on J.D. Robb, I loved it! This is the kind of story telling I look forward to from her. I didn't want to put it down. The narrator did an amazing job with this story, it was a difficult one at times with characters who had different accents, she nailed it in my opinion. Flawless effort, believable, and easy to listen to! Keep 'em coming Ms. Roberts!I
Vince Flynn is my favorite author. I enjoy CIA or FBI thrillers, and sometimes light reading like Judith McNaught or Cathrine Coulter. Personal information, I became a grandma last year and love it!
I would recommned this to a friend. It's entertaining and suspensful.
The main character, who goes by different names thoughout the story, is so direct when discussing her opinion its entertaining. You never know what she is going to say next. The story also has a thriller dynamic to it.
"Annabell" is the main characters' name in her adult life is my favorite character.
I have never read a Harlequin novel but I image one would read like "Witness"; full of implausible, over the top, two dimensional characters, who are blessed with the most unbelievable talents and capable of the most unbelievable behavior.
There is the domineering, cold hearted, "chief of surgery", evil to the core, mother and her pure, super intellectual, photographic minded, submissive 16 year old daughter, who, in spite of her amazing intellect; she speaks several languages, including Russian, and is wise beyond her years, is completely submissive to her evil mother. Oh, and btw, mom knows nothing of her daughters real interest; in becoming an FBI agent.
Then, this highly intelligent, rational and wise beyond her years hooks up with a 16 girl she barely knows, makes her a false ID, and together they hit the "club scene", knock down 5 "cosmos", hook up with the "hot" Russian club owners, who take them home and she remains standing and able to recall the horrific events that follow.
When the dust settles on the horror of the evening the evil mother appears and behaves like the evil queen in Snow White and when the protagonist is removed to the second safe house in chapter 4, or 5, she is met by a handsome, muscular, deputy in a tight white T-shirt and jeans.
If all this isn't pure Harlequin then I know what is.
