It was an interesting. there must have been times I fell asleep because it seemed to suddenly seemed to jump to something else. all in all, it was nothing to read twice but a good read
I enjoyed the story line very much. All of the events, twists and turns, and sub-plots seemed possible.
The narrator's various voices were very difficult to follow. Most of the time I couldn't tell when she transitioned from one character to the next.
narrator does a wonderful job. the storyline itself is put together very well. I was a little disappointed with the ending, however. With all the detail that's coveted throughout the story, I expected more at the end. the ending felt a little rushed.
I haven't read tons of Nora Roberts books,but I enjoyed this one. My one critique was that It started to get a little boring towards the end. I loved the story from the young adult perspective.
Great story couple of plots opportunit great job telling the story at the right time with out too much stuff
The narrator was great. I would listen to another book narrated by Julia Whelan. I also like the main character. I like the detail that Nora Roberts used to develop the main character in the beginning of the book.
Ok, so you're the author of this book creating the main character, hiding from the Russian mafia. Her character, Elizabeth/Abigail has spent a significant amount of time, money and street smarts to stay under the radar and stay alive. Nora Roberts goes into detail developing her character and she does a really good job. Abigail is strange and she is appealing and she's smart.
So WHY does NR wreck the whole thing by introducing a boyfriend/cop Brooks? This guy never stops. From the time Abigail meets him, he works constantly to wear her down to be more sociable, and he constantly interrupts the systems she has implemented to stay safe. If the book were more realistic, the things he does would have gotten her killed eventually. He's supposed to be rescuing her I guess, but he's a needy mess.
It just doesn't stop. He shows up uninvited, (so does his mother) eats her food, pushes her to do things she doesn't want to do, takes advantage of her loneliness.... Nora Roberts meant him to be the good guy, but I think he's a manipulator. He doesn't take no for an answer. Just an epic fail on that character and irritated the heck out of me.
Book started off so well, but it trailed off into a small town drama. Mayberry on steroids.
She does a variety of voices and keeps the story moving.
I listened to this twice in a row, it was so good! Really hoping that Nora Roberts make this the beginning of a series, it could be taken so many directions and the two main characters are compelling.
It was hard to have it end, I wanted it to keep going.
Perfect storyline, perfect narration, in an amazing ending. The only downfall was that the ending had to actually come. I would love to see "The Witness" hit the big screen!
