Love to exercise while listening
Good, Bad, Ugly
I love books that aren't distracting. Also, if I wasn't listening, I was thinking about the characters.
Wow! What an enjoyable listen. I love the combination of this author and narrator. I've listened to Secret keepers and that was similar. Different women in different parts of history.
I think of this story many months after listening to it. Mostly the happy parts, as there was so much sadness to this book as well. In fact I didn't even finish 2 chapters as she described a couple tragedies. I was driving and couldn't see through my tears! However the happy ending made it all worth it.
Yeah, I'm a girl. Regardless of what that picture shows.
I really liked this one! The narrator was great. The story was engrossing and kept me interested. I did figure it out early on but couldn't be sure until the end. I love a book that can make me feel something about the characters. I found myself disliking Dolly and actually saying out loud to Jimmy that he was too good for her.
It is narrated so well. Caroline Lee is GREAT!!!
The end of the book. There is an amazing twist
Narrator was awesome
When it is reveled that the real dolly died.
I love to listen to audio books
I like the style of Kate Morton, where you get the prospective of the story through many characters points of views, experiences. I enjoy time traveling back to the past and how it is unfolding in a mystery of the present. Then at the very end, it all comes together.
This is very similar to the Secrete Garden, also by the same author.
Yes, I find her very easy to listen to and understand.
A Secret Among Us
I am in my late twenties, a commuter, a romantic, & am loving life.
This was my second Kate Morton book. I didn't enjoy it quite as much as The Forgotten Garden, but it was still an excellent story. Set in WW2 London - this book had just enough history in it to make you feel like this REALLY HAPPENED - as if the characters were all real people with real problems. The main characters, Dolly and Vivian, were not your typical 'leading ladies'. Both suffered from mental issues... and that's probably the thing that made this book different from anything else I've ever read. You knew you couldn't necessarily trust the narrator. I loved it.
Caroline Lee did a fantastic job. She has such a lovely voice.
This won't be my last Kate Morton novel.
Finally!! I am an avid audible listener but I rarely write a review. Not this time! I have to say that this book took me by surprise. Very well written, beautifully narrated, AND a great story! I didn't want it to end but I couldn't wait to find out how it did!!
I don't want to spoil one minute of this story for anyone so please find out for yourself!
Hate to read but have enjoyed listening to books.
this story keeps you engaged and interested wanting more.
Just when you think you have it figured out there comes a twist which take the story a different direction.
I love the twists in her stories. While they may not be super deep, it's just plain entertaining. I always like her books.
I normally don't like abridged audio books because I don't want to miss anything, but this one could stand to be abridged. I actually started listening to it when it first came out and I happily snapped it up. What a disappointment. I was a good half way into the story, but so bored that I finally gave up and started something else. I finally went back to it several months (and books) later simply because I wanted my money's worth. It never really picked up until the end. The ending was fantastic and I want to say worth the wait, but having to muddle through all sorts of pointless details and peripheral stories, which could have easily been left out and not effected the main story, really made it hard to get to the end. The ending was the only redeeming quality, although I appreciate that Ms. Morton can write a book and tell a story without detailed sex scenes and offensive curse words.
No R ratings for me
Well written and well read!
Excellent writing, intricate story, compelling plot, EVERYTHING
A perfect voice and tone to each character. Even using a variety of accents and expressions that gave way to understanding the character's personalities.
I think the Secret Keeper is best. I love that the title itself is a twist in the story.
I prefer adult books without the adult language and explicit sex scenes. This was refreshing! I hope her other books do not disappoint in this regard, because I do love her writing!
