The friendship between Josie and her friend, but mostly how she wanted to help the girl
I really wasn't on the edge of my seat, but it did keep my interest
worth the credit
This book was offered as a special, so I bought it after reading the reviews. It is just as many people said. I couldn't keep up! The narrator is in hyper-speed! I slowed this thing down to .75 (that's point 75) on my i-phone, and other than a bit of distortion it was PERFECT :) The story was great. After all of the complaints about the narrator, I am surprised that the same person was chosen for the second book in the series. Try it, but slow it down.
I would think about it. I am not sure if it was as much of the writing as the reading of this book so I might try again.
Not a surprise, I could see it coming.
No, her use of voices was not good, it was annoying. Her characters would change voices in the middle of a conversation. The voices were not believable they just sounded goofy.
This was really hard to listen to. I didn't like the way time moved in the book. There would be an unknown gap of time with no warning. All of a sudden time would lapse and I'd have no idea what happened. There were a couple of big climaxes at the end that was skipped and then it's the next day.
I almost didn't finish listening. The book started out interesting, and I thought it had something going for it, but the characters stayed flat.
Strange long pauses at inappropriate times and no pauses when they were needed, like at the end of one character's actions before beginning the next segment. Sometimes it took a second or two to realize the subject had changed. She seemed to be in a verbal race.
Five Star ratings are hard for me to award. But as I look back on how quickly I finished the book and the list of other activities I gave up to enjoy this journey, it's clear...this one gets the nod. My interest was captured early, and it was held as the characters took shape and the mystery became intriguing. I don't want to oversell since that has a tendency to raise expectations to the point where even a good tale can struggle to please. But as my rating suggests...try it, I think you will enjoy the book.
Great story with some humor and no offensive language like some of the thrillers.
I hope the rest of the series is added to Audible.
One of the best mystery books I have read in a while!
Grabbed your attention right from the start and held it throughout. Loved all the characters and the story. Descriptions were such that you could just paint a picture in your mind.
Probably Hannah, really hard to choose.
Excellent development of characters. Had me hooked immediately and held my interest throughout. Definitely a must read!!!
I've read the book and listened to the audio and I love the way the characters come alive in the audio book. Tara Platt distinguishes the voices with theatrical expertise and conveys the emotional depth of the characters.
Hostile Witness compares favorably with early John Grisham and Scott Turow legal thrillers. In fact, in many ways I think Rebecca Forster's characters have more depth.
Hannah is my favorite character and my favorite scene with her is when she finally breaks down and trusts Josie with the truth about what happened between her and Justice Rayburn.
Hannah is an extreme character and it was easy to have an extreme reaction. The story of how a daughter can be so loyal to a mother who doesn't deserve it made me very angry.
Download this book and you'll be begging for the other books in this series to be made into audio books.
This is an incredible book. It was well crafted and narrated. Rebecca Forster is a talented author of this roller coaster story that just when you've settled in, the tempo and plot twists keep you interested throughout. Without the slightest bit of fantasy or hyperbole, she shows the reader the real demons that exist among us. A must read.
