Read it read it read it!!!! This story is one of Roberts' best. I would highly recommend to anyone who has even a minimal interest in her writing.
I have not listened to many audio books or read many books for that matter. I found myself really looking forward to listening to this book every night. So for me this is a good indicator as to how good a book is.
I have a DLitt and Phil Degree which must imply a level of discernment? I just clocked over at 60. The significance is that I have read a whole lot of books. I'm now revisiting some of my all time favourites - and enjoying some first time round books. Books are my friends. Audible is JUST AMAZING - takes me back to pre -TV days, with my ear pressed to a crackly transistor radio - but now SO MUCH better and more 'classy' from a Kindle!
I enjoyed this book. It is 'light', yet offers some up to the minute and interesting themes. i liked Catherine as the product of a desirable donor, the concept of a calculating, cold, unemotional mother unable to 'bond' with her offspring and the rather mechanical, intelligent characterisation. The great IT expertise and fantastic hacking ability of our heroine was quite believeable. Even the weakness of the witness protection scheme was credible. I was surprised that I enjoyed this book. I found Survivor in Death by Nora Roberts going as JB Robb over the top. I imagined that this would be equally unbearable. However, it was OK with a 'lived happily ever after' ending. Sweet.
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.
I have listened to books for 30 years. Some great books are ruined by bad narrators.
Julia Whelan made this book a delight to listen to.
