YES, I WOULD! IT ADDES SUCH A EXTRA DIMENTION TO THE STORY. I DO LIKE
NORA ROBERTS. BUT THE AUTO BOOK IS WONDERFUL. I AM READING IT
AGAIN TO TO PICK ANY PARTS I MIGHT HAVE MISSED.
I WAS REALLY PLEASED I CAN OBTAIN THE AUTO BOOKS ON MY KINDLE.!
IT WAS SO GOOD, I COULD HARDLY PUT IT DOWN.
THANK YOU, KARENROSE
YES, ESPECIALLY TOWARD TO LAST WHEN SHE STARTS TO TELL ALL
I THINK IT WAS WONDERFUL. YOU COULD SEE EACH PERSON AS SHE WAS
WHEN HE ASKED HER TO MARRY HIM.
At first it seemed like a very predictible book with situations hard to believe, but the main character quickly wraps you and the story develops smoothly. In general a great story with an excellent balance of suspense and light reading.
Excellent performance, when listening to her, my mind was placed right with the characters and the story.
Very well read.
Yes, and I have listened to it over and over, and enjoyed it every time.
This was the first time that I have listened to an audible book. Julia Whelan was amazing in my eyes as she kept her voices for the characters true to when she first started the book. I laughed out loud, I cried. The story was one that I didn't want to end as you were endeared to the characters and wanted to know so much more about them and how they carried on with their lives. I realize that all stories come to an end, even our own, but somettimes you do want to know what comes of someone that you have seen blossom. And the calmness and love that was being given to help with that blossom, it is always wonderful to know how far that goes and what that love can do for someone. Thank you to Nora Roberts and Julia Whelan!!
Yes, this is a good a great book. But, thought it drag on to much in the middle.
The dog.. I thought it was great to put in the present of sharing his role in this book.
This was my first download of a audible book and I like it as a good way to entertain myself beside reading it.
I have read/listened to many of Nora Roberts' books over the years, and never seem to get enough of the stories and characters she creates. The Witness is an engaging, easy listening, and sometimes humorous story. The reader is convincing as a teenager, then as an adult. I love how Julia Whelan was able to inflect different tones in her voice to portray Brooks (I can see him now), Sunny, Ash, Justin Blake and the other characters as well. Just imagine being the daughter of a control freak, witnessing a horrific crime at a young age, embracing the witness protection program as your "family", a life on the run, and then meeting people that somehow make you believe your life could actually be normal again...but the past is always looming in your thoughts and dreams and then they resurface as a reality. But can Liz/Abigail ever have a normal life again? Read the story and find out for yourself...you won't regret the time you spend in listening to this WONDERFUL story!
I found this high on my list.
I very much liked the main character and how she was built up. Was realistic and liked how the author helped me understand the character and was consistent in how she developed her.
Very strong. First time I heard her and liked her.
It is fun being drawn into fantasy, but not when so unlikely. Not so much the implausibility of the overall plot, but the implausibility of the development of relationships. A chick flick. (No offense, chicks.)
5 Stars - Loved it & will listen to it again 4 Stars - Really liked it & may listen to it again 3 Stars - Liked it but will not listen to it again 2 Stars - Didn't like it very much 1 Star - Hated it
Liked the characters and how they interacted. Very smart dialog. I listened to this book twice.
Yes, but I now want to explore more audible titles since I have re-discovered how wonderful and engaging books can be.
Some of the Harlan Coban or James Patterson Women's Cop books, because they are introducing unforgettable characters in well plotted mystery solving situations.
The surprise ending, where years of planning and protecting the protagonist finally resulted in an answer to the original problem.
Not a single moment, but the carefully crafted progression of a plan which was not visible in its entirely, but was also unrelenting in its direction and intent.
This book has the kind of strong individual characters which lend themselves to a sequel or more, and I predict that within 18 months this will become a smash movie.
