Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. I'm not big Nora Robert's fan so I wasn't expecting it to be as good as it was. I enjoyed the chacaters and i feel she captured the everyday workings of a brilliant mind in a logical and at times humorous way. The story line was excellent it kept me interested through out the entire book. The love scenes were mild and could have been a bit "juicier" but appreciated none the less after reading excerpts from " 50 Shades of Gray"
The narrator was really good she nailed the Russian accents with out making you cringe each time words were spoken by the Russian characters which says a lot because there are narrators out there that have actually hurt my ears so harsh was their pronunciations.
All things considered i can whole heartedly recommend this book.
I couldn't turn this audio book down. I normally read non-fiction, but every now and then I reach for a fiction book. This one was amazing. The narrator was great and the story compelling. I would recommend to anyone!
I loved the slow but nicely paced romance and how the "difficult" part (when she was young and feeling helpless) wasn't over done. I tend to skip parts like that.
Oh man, she has to be the best reader ever. The male parts are read kindly but manly, very sexy. The female parts are very vulnerable yet strong. This may be the first audibook where I really didn't need the book to tell me who was talking; each part was so clear and different, the listener KNEW.
I loved it when Brooks got Abigail to understand that her mother had abused her and being able to love was a miracle.
I'm trying to decide to either gobble up all the reader's works or the author. Wish they had done more together.
I am not a big fan of Nora Roberts, but decided to try this one. It is really good so far. The narration is really good.
I listen to audios on my way to and from work so I always choose the audio edition over the printed edition
Great story. I love all of her books.
Mom to 3 boys, full time professional. Listen to 2 books a week in my car during a long commute. On the hunt for a good, gripping read.
I suppose this is a Classic Nora Roberts formula? There is no real story. No twists, no real suspense. 12 hours of setting up the back story. I kept expecting some real action, something to read TO. But in the end it was "Heroine is running, 12 hours of why, falling in love, blam over". Boring.
What happened to the coke can with her finger prints? Couldnt the Volcovs come after her. What about them? What happened to the organization? What about Blake? All that and "...he went to jail" so anti-climactic.
Absolutely, the story was great, it was an easy/fun read. I'd even listen to it again.
Hmmm, I think when the years changed. The story flashes forward some years and it's really interesting to see the character & how she's changed as well. Very well written and well read.
Oh so much, I really enjoyed it. She gave just enough to each character that you had a better feel for them, as opposed to just having read it. I feel like she read it aloud exactly as I would have read it to myself, so that was nice. Sometimes narrators put too much into it, Julia did just perfectly.
oh gosh I have no idea….sorry
great book, easy read but keeps you interested. AND I listen to my books while running/walking…ONLY while running and walking, so I got lots of good exercise during this one cause I couldn't "put the book down" :)
To some extext; it was a little bit predictable and developed differently than i anticipated.
I loved how N.R. developed the story without the typical ways the good guys win. It held my interest from beginning to end and I hated when it ended. Very well thought out with situations that seem very relevant today. Some good suspense. If you are a N.R. fan, you will love this book. Julia Whelan did a great job of narration as well!
How the story was told from different perspectives. The suspense was just enough and keeps reader on their toes all till the end. Beautiful Story!
Chasing Fire by Nora Roberts
Oh man, YES! It was hard to stop when I needed to get out of car.
