Really enjoyed this book. Excellent flow, easy to remember characters and great narration. Found myself talking with a lil southern drawl!
Just when I think I am done reading Nora Roberts because they are becoming so formulaic just writes one like this and I get sucked back in. The narrator had a nice voice the majority of the book, however occasionally he wound sound like Forest Gump.
I didn't like this performance at all. The narrator has a nice voice, but his southern accent is deplorable - he made everyone sound like an uneducated hick with mental deficiencies. He would have been better off using his regular speaking voice. I quit after ~5 hours...I tried, but I just couldn't take the twang any more. Very disappointed.
I generally enjoy Nora Roberts books, but this one was so full of dated stereotypes that I suspect it would insult most Southerners today. Yes, I realize this was written 25+ years ago, but the stereotypes seemed more like those of the 1950's to me, and I think Southerners would have been offended even back when this was first released in 1991.
I will be returning this one.
The performance was wonderful. The story captivating and the twist at the end I never could have imagined. All together one great book
This book could have been better but, the narrator made the southerners sound down right stupid. Hard to like a character when they sound like an uneducated hayseed. I skipped to the end just so I didn't have to listen to it anymore. Argh!
Although I am an avid Nora Roberts fan, this was not my favorite. The narrator made the characters sound like derelicts. I don't want to sound mean but in several places it sounded like his dentures were slipping which made his voices he used even worse. It all took away from,the enjoyment of the story.
Good book, kept me guessing.
The narrator was totally excellent and made this audiobooks great!
His accents and ability to bring the characters to life really made the book!
This is one of my new favorites now. Well written, fantastic story and greatly narrated. I don't know why it took me so long to read it but I lived it. It's a little outdated, but perfect.
