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.
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.
