It captures you, keeps you, makes you laugh and feel the story all the way.
None to compare - to date for me.
The way she brings the Southerners to light.
And lets you feel the love between Brooks and Abigale...I actually sighed out loud at the end. So refreshing!
Overcome the Past and create a Future
A worthy read, listen, 5x and probably 5x more.
I got right into this story from the start, I loved the character of Elizabeth. I love that the book takes a long time to build to the climax , so that you really feel like you know the characters when it comes to crunch time, you are more invested in the outcome.
Not to spoil it but I loved the twist at the end. The only improvement that could be made is a male narrator for the male characters.
I would suggest it for a lazy weekend escape, something to apply your imagination to and enjoy the story.
It's out of my normal genre for any comparisons.
Never experienced her performance prior, usually prefer male readings, but acclimatized and started enjoying the story more and therefore her performance. Good effort.
It's no where near a 'Girl With' series or many others, it's not sucked-in alarmingly different, but it's a good story to keep the listener (male or female) looking forward to plugging back in and getting back to 'what's going to happen next'.
ompelling, complex, believable
When Liz decided she could have a "regular life" .
Loved Julia Whelan.
Brooks' personality was perfect for Liz, Elizabeth..... I mean, Abagail.
The gruesome sadism that was thrown in was unnecessary and unpleasant. I did not think that kind of violence enhanced the story in any way. I felt disappointed and that I had wasted my money on this one. It turned my stomach, to be honest.
Say something about yourself!
No, I don't like this author and her fairy tail, unrealistic, predictable romances. By the reviews I thought she'd written a real mystery/suspense this time. She did, for that very small first portion, then right back to her formula writing style.
Pretty high on my list -- characters are interesting. - good mystery
Brooks Gleason- you are well into the story when you meet him.
I wanted to listen at every free moment until ti was done.
A girl in trouble with the threat of danger and romance, great story, likable characters, suspense -- what more could you want.
Flynn's Amy Dunne doesn't have to state about the IQ of 210 or repeatedly say "I'm very smart" and yet any readers still believe it. And honestly, Liz/Abigale's skills on blend-in and what it takes on the run are just BS. Finally, NR needs to do more home works on her next technical descriptions. Please at least read the seri Stealing the Network started in 2003 and ended in 2007 (that means they're also outdated) from Syngress Publishing.
First by Nora Roberts - not sure if I would go with her again. Julia Whelan was great.
I echo the sentiment that this was much too similar to GWTDT. Perhaps if I had not read GWTDT previously I would have enjoyed this book more. I was also slightly underwhelmed by the protagonist losing much of her independence/autonomy once she met Brooks. In my opinion it would have said more of her character if she made decisions to act on her own accord instead of her new boyfriends.
Everything. Flat, predictable, cardboard characters, a silly storyline. I'm not against escapist fiction as a whole, however this book annoyed me so much I wanted to escape from it. After part one I realized there was no point in enduring it. I kept waiting for it to become interesting as it had recieved excellent reviews.
The narrator was the best part of the book.
All of it.
