I loved the theme of it - the hacking as I am in awe of people that clever. The story wasn't too deep but interesting enough.
I liked her performance, thought she was very good. But I cannot say that I'd prefer it over reading the book myself.
I was relieved that Nora has come back. There were some books in the not too distant past that were just very boring (eg Tribute).
It was entertaining and I just wanted to drive my car or go to gym so that I can listen to it.
This is the first Nora Roberts book I've read/heard, and judging by this one, it's the last. The narration was pretty good, but the story is light on substance.
If you read "Girl With a Dragon Tattoo" you'll recognize this story line, but this story doesn't hold up in the action and intrigue arena. It's pretty predictable.
I enjoyed the audio edition of this. I found the reader excellent and kept me wanting to listen to more.
I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I loved the characters and the writing was superb. Although I picked this up thinking it was a mystery/suspense novel, it was absolutely a romance with suspense on the side. Still, I really enjoyed the book. Although I rarely watch it, the leading character Elizabeth reminds me a lot of the female lead in the TV show "Bones"--highly intelligent, yet awkward in social situations. Not my favorite character but I loved the male lead character, Brooks, so much that I just might have to re-read this one--and I am NOT a re-reader.
I loved the writing. The characters were really well defined and there was humor sprinkled throughout the story. I really liked how the author used the characters' own speech, like the various southern idioms coming from the locals in Bickford, to develop the characters throughout the story.
The narrator did a great job with the voices, by the way. A bad narrator can ruin a perfectly good audiobook, and this one did a great job with all the southern accents--even if they aren't Ozark mountains accents. :)
I couldn't pick a favorite scene, however, I did enjoy Abigail's first few encounters with Brooks.
No. This wasn't a tear-jerker, thank goodness.
Read it--you won't regret it!
Completely rewritten story after safe house
Kept me listening when I would have quit reading much sooner
Yes, definitely! The wonderful narrator made the book!!
When she went undercover and began her new life.
The main character.
For this particular book, the narrator sold this listener! Hope to listen to more of her! I am spoiled now!!
Wonderful book and story line. Was a very exciting read and kept me coming back for more.
I seldom take time to write reviews (will have to work on that) but this book was so good and so entertaining I had to put in my two cents. I have put this book into my top 5 listens from Audible, and I have listened to literally hundreds of books over the years. Seldom do I listen to a book that doesn't follow the same'ole outline of how events unfold. You may not be sure of what is going to happen, but you know how it's going to happen, if you know what I mean. However, Nora came up with a unique outline and a unique heroine in Elizabeth/Abigail. I agree that her personality was a lot like that of Temprance Brennan on the hit series Bones which made Liz/Abigail funny and intelligent beyond her years. I was hooked within the first 10 minutes (a must for a good book, I feel) and the rest of the book flew by so quickly I was sorry to see it end (another important quality in my book, no pun intended!). The story was also unique (not the run of the mill who done-it or serial killer genre) with likeable characters (loved the dog Bert!!) and a very satisfying ending (also a must for me). I would recommend this book to everyone. You will not be sorry you spent the credit on this one!!
