I never write reviews, but this book was so great I had to encourage others to try it.
I've read a lot of Nora Roberts, including her mainstream novels and supernatural thrillers and futuristic crime procedurals. I always finish her books satisfied, but this one left me in tears...I was moved.
The luminous characterization, the stirring love story, and the non-stop suspense make it a powerhouse. It has more depth and texture than anything I've read by this author, and she should be proud to call this novel an achievement.
At first, I was befuddled as various endearing, and not so endearing characters were introduced, but they all fit together like puzzle pieces in the end. The hero and heroine were likeable, and their romance believable and understated. I was really rooting for them
The voice actress was amazing, breathing individual life into the large cast of characters, dragging you into the story. Particularly mesmerizing was the telling of the night that Abigail's life changed forever.
The only thing that I can imagine people might not like about The Witness is that its style is a little more deliberate than other Roberts novels. Its characters are well -rounded and meticulously defined, so there's a lot of detail here. While some may feel it's tedious, others may find it makes the book....well...fantastic.
good story line i did not want it to finish
abigail she was so smart
it was good when to tired to read you could listen
when it looked like liz was shot
I loved the way the story built itself, though it chopped and changed from character to character it was always easy to follow..
I like Brook the best I think, although Elizabeth was a very strong character..
Excellent narration, all the characters were thoroughly believable
It made me both laugh and cry in places..
I just really enjoyed this story..
Nora Roberts really knows how to craft a smart thriller.
Her character development in this book is well done. From an emotionally stunted and soon to be rebellious 16 year old to a smart savvy always watchful computer genius who can take down the bad guys with a few computer strokes.
This one is one you can't stop listening to, so be prepared to lose some sleep with this one.
The narrator is well chosen, her voice well modulated, and her vocal characterizations well done.
I generally do not listen to books (or read them) twice, but I can see how you could. This was such a lovely story, and I did not anticipate it ending as it did. I really loved it, and could not wait for every opportunity to listen.
I love to read but I listen to audio books while I'm busy with other things. I don't know if it's better than the written book but it was certainly as good.
I couldn't stop listening to this book even when I wasn't busy with other things.
Good book, good performance... Get it!
I'm addicted to Audible. May need an intervention!
One of the best Nora Roberts books! I liked it so much I listened to it twice in a row!
The story line and the reader's ability to bring life into the audio.
Overall, it is the quality The Witness has to grasp your interest to see what happens next, the un-expected turns and richness of the story.
Loved her performance in general, she makes the characters come to life. The reader makes you miss the characters at the end of the audio.
Didn't read the print so I can't say.
The plot and the characters kept me hooked. I even drove around the block an extra two times so that I could listen to the book a few more minutes.
