The Narrator was so Good She Kept me from wanting to stop for a Break The Story itself was Beautifully Written Nora Roberts is so Talented of a Writer this is the 3rd book of hers I've read Now I'm looking for number Four
As always Nora Roberts is an author that gives you a story that keeps you totally glued on the characters as well, as the story line. Each story is written, I think, to allow the reader to have a part in that story, as well, as the characters.
People who like Twight or other teenage targeted books.
This book is written abouy 210 IQ genius, However Roberts doesn't comprehend what it really means. Abigail is really an average southern home maker with sparks of useless trivial knowledge, unable to comprehend basic human interactions and repeats and bewilders about simplest everyday cocepts. It's a 3 hour story stretched into 16.
No one or no performance can save this poor storyline.
I made a mistake and trusted the 9000+ positive reviews on this book, It seems like I read a different book than others. My IQ is not 210, ai don't know anyone in person who is. However I find it difficult to see how a rich kid raised in Chicago by a neurosurgeon is now drooling over a bunch of rednecks in deep south. Roberts has no idea how a smart brain works, what does it take to be a hacker, ....
My favorite way to get my reading fix when I am on the move
I have listened tot he Witness three times and will listen to again and again. Nora Roberts really did some of her best work on this book.
Elizabeth (Liz, Abigail) was one of the best characters (if not the best) I have ever followed. She was so well developed and even though she was a genius and faced overwhelming obstacles to having a normal life she was believable and relatable.
The narration was great. Each character was clearly identifiable. I don't recall listening to Julia Whelan's narrations before but she did a fantastic job in the Witness. I will definitely look for other books she narrates.
I became so enthralled in the life of Liz that I cried for her and laughed with her. I even felt her fear and apprehension as she found acceptance and love. My reactions to all of the characters was real, strong and sometimes exhausting.
