I started this book expecting one thing. I had in my mind how it was going to read and the general direction that the book was going to go. I was so far off that it made the book all the more worth reading! I kept me so interested that every free minute I had I kept hitting the play button to listen for just a few minutes.
The story was dull.
Robyn Carr's series
The story was like listening to a nightly news narration.
Not much to be happy about... underlining sadness throughout
Concentrated on the negative most often
Yes, think he is very good
I will not read another book from Danielle Steel. I read her in the past but her style became very repetitive and I have not read a book in at least five years, her style has grown even more stilted and without feeling. It reminded me of the writing my children did in High School. Definitely glad I listened to the book as I was multi tasking and didn't lose eight hours that I could never get back. The narrator was horrible and had no concept of voice variance. Much too monotone to be interesting.
It has turned me off completely to Danielle Steel.
Everything. Boring. Speech was much too chopped off. Did not know how to transition from male to female. Maybe it was the book that made him sound so bad. I will try him again.
The book had so many possibilities as to where it went but the author took a great idea and rammed it into a wall and the book was lost after the first chapter or so. I don't need sadness and anguish in my reading, there is too much in real life and I use my reading and listening for escape and imagination not gloom and doom.
yes - interesting story, a few zingers you do not anticipate - great ending.
Dealing with the death of Gabby.
Opening chapter scene with the kids in the classroom
Great story like takes you right along with them.
Always full of just enough to keep you wanting more.
I love being able to get the the pleasure out of reading some of my favorite authors via audio since I don't have the time to sit & read as much anymore
It is a typical Danielle Steele read
NEVER! I read and owned all of Danielle Steel's earlier books. This was a terrible disapointment and the narration was AWFUL! I don't know why a man was chosen to read this. His prerformance was way over the top, too emotional, and just plain creepy.
I may try Danielle Steel again, from the library. I don't think I'll be wasting anymore money on her though.
As stated, his preformance was way over the top. It truly detracted from the story.
All of that and more. I understand that life is life and death is part of it. But really?? The first was touching. The second shocking. The third? By that point I was beyond disappointed and knew I'd be writing a review.
Don't waste your money. This is NOT the Danielle Steel I loved so much twenty years ago. Three words to describe this book...TRASH. DISAPPOINTMENT. REGRET.
Predictably Danielle Steel style, but isn't that exactly what we love? This book made my raod trip go so quickly, as one "issue" after another arose in her many characters. No real twists.. no special surprises, but a lot of action, many characters, and oh so entertaining
Not any one favorite
again, no favorite
and life goes on....
