The beginning of this book was really gripping and moved at a good pace. The narration was excellent as well.
The first half of this book was really well written and an interesting story. I felt the latter part of this book got a little repetitive in the story. Overall I enjoyed the story and narration.
Yes. It serves as an enjoyable deviation
I don't think so. I wasn't impressed.
Her ability to adjust her voice and delivery to each character's personality.
Yes. I'm not good at casting.
Yes! Yes! Yes! This is, by far, the best Nora Roberts book I have ever read. The story is absolutely riveting. It is timely and a great coming of age story, no matter how old you are....
I loved the main character. I loved how she is portrayed, I loved how the narrator interpreted the nuances of her feelings and words, and her story gave new meaning to what it means to have a stable home life.
Have not heard any others, but will definitely find more!
Yes, could not put this down. I even brought my headphones to bed to listen while I fell asleep!
Honestly, this is just one of the best, most enjoyable books I have listened to, or read in a long time. Great story, great characters, and a great personal lesson. Always be yourself!
I might, just to hear the narration by Julia Whelan.
Abigail/Elizabeth. She didn't have sloppy emotions, didn't whine, and did what she needed to do without getting wordy about it. I like her matter of fact and logical way of thinking.
Her voice for Abigail and the tones and inflections to reflect her "Mr Spock" way of speaking was wonderful and realistic without being annoying. I could not have done it as well "in my head".
When I get ahold of a book with a interesting plot and a good narrator I would go all day listening if I get the opportunity. This was one of those books.
Norah Roberts books can be a little foo-foo for me but after reading "The Witness" I will check out the plots on her past and new books.
The unique and creative plot is fleshed out by Roberts' reliable warm and interesting characters. Just plain enjoyable.
This book was a total disappointment for me. I don't know why this book is categorized as "suspense". It must have been categorized as "romance". If you like the Jack Reacher series, and if you are a guy, this book is not for you. Trust me and stay away. If you are a female, then you will probably love this book like other reviewers. I am not going to provide any spoilers, but the main character "Liz/Abigail" acts like a person who is from another planet and who is sent to live among humans. And this drags till the end of the book. At one point, I also thought of her as a computer program that is trying to live a human life. I cannot find anymore words to describe my disappointment with the main character as well as the storyline. The book has the potential to deliver an interesting and captivating story but fails miserably. Overall, I couldn't wait for it to end. A little note for Julia Whelan: she delivers an outstanding performance. She is the only reason I finished this book. I fell in love with her!
Easy to follow the characters and story line. I listened to the book in chunks, often with days in between and the story still worked for me.
The personalities of both lead characters - Abigail and Brooks - come across well. I quite liked Brooks' mom - a little quirky, warm and fun.
Julia really does well to differentiate the characters with subtleties in her voice and tone or with relevant accents. No particular favourite.
I definitely did a some sittings of a couple of hours, which were really enjoyable. But most of the time I listened here and there while doing other tasks or driving. This book was good company over many hours.
A general 'good read'.
Great story! at first I wondered where it was going, but then it took off!!! Love a strong gun toting woman!
The character of the witness was interesting. She began as a smart young girl and and grew into an even wiser young lady!
The story was interesting, and captivating. The ending was good too.
One of the best Nora Roberts books that I've read over the years.
