I felt for Liz all the way! the story was gripping, the characters real and interesting and it was read brilliantly.
good contrass between characters.....and consistent throughout
I did both!
Listen on people!
One of those books that I looked forward to getting home, getting comfy & getting lost in the story.
I would absolutely recommend this book. The first few chapters are very exciting and shoots you into the very protected world of a suburban teen with photographic memory, who breaks free of her parental shackles one and her planned path to unexpectedly encounter a world of organized crime. Sounds good right?
Outside of the first few chapters where she grows up and moves to the small southern town is where is gets more slow paced for me. Even the male lead that she eventually meets and connects with is alot on the easier and relaxed side for the pace I thought established earlier is the book. But the story line is still very good, there is a strong connection between the characters and great narrator who pulls you into the head of our leading lady. I don't think that this book was as hot and steamy as it should have been, but I don't really expect that from Nora Roberts, as it is not her style.
I'd give this book a 4.5 out of 5, I highly recommend that you spend that long awaited credit on this one.
I listen to audiobooks mainly while commuting 90 minutes a day and when walking. Sometimes when knitting.
Really enjoyed this! I am not a huge Nora Roberts fan but have listened to or read 5-6 of her books. This is one of the best so far. It held my interest to the end and I recommend it.
Definitely. I am sure most of my friends would enjoy this story
Abigail - even though her abilities were outrageous I still enjoyed the fun of them
When she was killed - weird I know
Can't think of any
I was entranced from the beginning, I didn't want it to finish
Abigail's courage and ability to survive against overwhelming odds.
When she turns herself in to the FBI
Brooks builds her a surprise gift - and shows the real depth of his love and understanding.
When Abigail realized she could love & no longer feared dying for the life she deserved .
The suspense is great. Couldn't put it aside.
I have listen to almost 100 audible books and Nora Roberts The Witness is my hands down number one favorite book.
Abigail is the most interesting, deprived, shy, helplessyly capable, geeky, brilliant, and beautiful character that you will instantly fall in love with.
Julia Whelan is an absolutely incredible narrator. Julia clearly understands the roll and uniqueness of each person in the story. Through speech, tone, and voice inflection Julia vividly brings out the personality and temperament of each character, event, and situation throughout the entire book. Super job!!
This was my first Nora Roberts book and Julia Whelan listen. I was overwhelmingly impressed. In fact, I was so impressed this is my first rating. I have told many family and friends about the audiobook version of The Witness. I am looking forward to the next Nora Roberts book and Julia Whelan listen.
Well performed,interesting characters portrayed well in the small town American setting
After the trial when Abigail was the witness and what happened next
A little of both
I had given up on Nora Roberts, but this revived my confidence in her. Follow it up with Play Dead by David Rosenfeld, which also deals with the wilness protection program.
No I'm not one to go back to listen to things again and again - especially when I know the ending.
The whole concept of Liz's character and story was inspired and so I enjoyed the book all the way through. She was well drawn as a very strong determined woman however her vulnerability was very clear. Brooks was also a great combination alternatively of laid back and steel - depending on what was necessary for Liv or his job at the time.
