The story would be good because it is well developed...but the "F" bombing was so gratuitous and not even necessary! If anyone can ignore the cussing, then it will be enjoyable to hear. I really got interested in the plot. If I were " reading" it, I could skip over the disturbing repetitions.
Take out the unnecessary street language. Her characters are nicely developed, her plot is good, but.......! Yuk!!!
She was good.
None....just the token cussing
I liked the narrator's voice.
I liked the main character. She was strong, beautiful, brilliant, and self-reliant.
She had a very smooth sounding voice.
Plotting the main adversary's downfall.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
this was a wonderful story about a strong and brilliant girl. It was so interesting that I hoped it would go on and on, but when it ended it was a satisfying end,, an end with a twist.
I have given Nora Roberts books varying reviews over the years--never bad but some were middle of the road. I really liked this one. Liz (aka Abigail) is a very likable, vulnerable yet brilliant young woman who is forced to shape her destiny starting in her teens and in opposition to her upbringing, using primarily her intellect to wage war against a very nasty crime syndicate.
i loved the characters and the narrator was perfect! I really enjoyed this book. Nora Roberts has a way with characters.
The first stanza of this book focuses on the main character as a highly intelligent and regimented teen. Her life with her robotic mom is discussed as an aside in the context of the daughter's unprecedented rebellion. I almost stopped reading because I didn't think I could tolerate an entire book written from the perspective of the know-it-all teen. However, that phase ended with a bang, actually with a couple of them. The second stanza is more entertaining. I was all excited for a big finish, but the book ended less dramatically than I would have liked. In the movie version, they'll probably give the audience what I was craving.
I am becoming a Nora Roberts Fan!! This book didn't disappoint. It is full of intrigue a few twist and turns and even some good Romance. I'm sure I will listen to it again. If you are looking for a page turner this might be for you. I even had a few tears. I guess you can say it covered all my emotions.
