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.
I don't recall if I have ever read Nora Roberts, but this book was great from beginning to end. Didn't want to put it down. Would definately recommend it to anyone wanting a great book.
Always looking for something new to to explore in life. Over 50, artistic, quilting is a passion. A long drive and a good book are the best
As parents we can sometimes be over protective and this story speaks to the harm we can do in the most extreme example. However our children can triumph beyond our errors and become people with amazing lives and talents. Stong woman are so enjoyable to read about.
Yes, Elizabeth possess a talent that very people in life do and to see how it was a curse and a tool kept me wondering what would happen next.
Her voice is very easy to listen
Mom of Twins
Perfect summer novel
Sunny, who had a combination of good sense, creativity, and friendliness
Weak male voice
No tears or laughter but I found myself captivated.
A great book for vacation. Interesting story and interesting characters.
