did not read it
LOVED the entire story
Julia Whelan did an excellent job with both male and female voices.
Never able to listen to an entire book in one sitting, but this is a book I've listened to several times. One of my favorite Nora Roberts
Again, this is not something you would ever want to purchase and listen to unless you don't mind hearing filthy language. I started out on a trip with my husband and we were going to listen to this thinking the story line was a good one. To our disappointment we didn't through the first few chapters and we realized this was not for us!! The sad thing is I had purchased this one and also "The Search" and they were both the same way, such filthy language I've never heard. So disappointing! Never again will I purchase anything by Nora Roberts! What a waste of good money!
yes, she was fine
It wasn't the characters it was the language they used, I really believe like "The Search" this would have been a great book had you been able to get past the language. There is never a reason to use our Lord's name in vain or the other nasty things they used. This in no way made the story better rather it destroyed a very creative storyline.
Sorry I wasted my credits but I learned my lesson.
I have to say that the only thing that could've helped this book would have been if, well, it had been an utterly different book. I heard that the novel featured a women who carried a side-arm, had a killer dog, and could hack into the FBI while hiding from the Russian mob, and I thought she'd be cool. Wrong. She was actually just a gal who needed a slow-talkin' Southern sheriff to help her out. Not what I expected.
Cloying, simpering, annoying
Fans of books in which the heroine melts when (give or take a few million pages) a big strong guy shows up will love this. That's not me. I like Tana French and Robert Crais. Turns out I don't like Nora Roberts.
One of the reviews below summed this book up well. It started off brightly - engaging the reader with the story of Elizabeth as a 16 year old being dragged in to the witness protection program having witnessed a murder. Fast forward 12 years. Rather than being a story about exacting revenge, it drifts into a love story between a small town cop and Elizabeth. The interactions and descriptions of their courtship dragged on and bored me. The ending appeared rushed and you would have liked to have known what happened to some of the earlier protagonists. The performance of the reader was OK although, her male impressions sounded slightly odd. Overall the book was OK - kept my interest but the ending was poor.
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'.
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.
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.
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.
This was another great read from Nora Roberts. Good main characters and good narration. The beginning was a bit slow and difficult to listen to just because of the painful situation the heroine was in. Love the town and ancillary characters, as well.
