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.
This book has given me renewed interest in Nora Roberts, as I've gotten a little bored with her. I LOVED this story. She may have rushed the ending a little, but it works well. The narrator did a fantastic job.
This book was narrated well and moved at a nice pace. The story hooked you and kept you wanting more. Recommend it!
It was suspenseful.
I felt so bad for her anytime she spoke of her mother
I enjoyed the story. I enjoyed the plots twists, such as they were. It was just a bit predictable.
I AM A 60 YEAR OLD MOM/GRANDMA AND GREAT GRANDMA. BOOKS ARE MY PASSION. A WELL WRITTEN STORY IS A TREASURE.
Has it all.
There so many but, I must say, I was so touched by Abigail's discovery of the meaning of family. Made me feel grateful for my own family, which is wonderful.
There is no way to choose. She made them all so distinctive in their own right but yet supportive of each other. She was fubulous. Would have enjoyed reading this book but the audio version, I feel, increased the enjoyment and impact of the story by a hundred percent.
Extreme? Oh yes, on both ends of the reaction scale and everything in between.
LOVED IT!!! Ihave read nearly everything written by Nora Roberts (also as JD Robb) this is one of her best yet. I am proud to be a huge fan and supporter of her work.
You Keep Writting Nora and I'll Gladly Keep Reading!!!!
While many of Nora Roberts books are formula series without much story, The Witness is just better than that. There's not a lot of mystery; you know basically what's going to happen in the end. What you don't know is how the characters are going to make this fairy tale have a happy ending. Nora's books always have happy endings, right? I think this book is character driven, but Julia Whelan gives the characters personalities and maintains them nicely. I liked the people; I'd like to know them; I'd like to live in their town. While Nora Roberts may have created and populated this novel, Julia Whelan gave it life. As an audible read, it was very, very enjoyable!
