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!
So much better than Gone Baby Gone. Not twisted ...... Just a great mystery!
I wish there were more books like this on the market right now.
I really liked the story line, the backdrop of the time line- WorldWar 2 and the characters were very well developed. I recommend this book to those who like family history mystery with a dose of historical event in the novel.
This book works on so many different levels, its hard to pinpoint just one reason why I enjoyed it so much. But I did. Thoroughly. Highly recommended.
Dogs believe they are human. Cats believe they are God.
Yes. The audio is perfect. The reader sets the tone for the story. Her voice becomes the character. I don't know if another reader could have done as excellent a job.
The moment came when I thought I knew the secret. I was wrong. The secret turned out to much more complex than I thought.
I can think of no name more appropriate than The Secret Keeper.
This is a great audiobook! It does, however, have a lot of detail. If I were reading this there would be a lot of sections I would skip. However, for this book, you can't skip. The characters stories are interwoven and the complexity of the secret is revealed through the details. All in all, an excellent story and well worth the read.
Only just started out but a winner in my library.
Great characters overall and will listen again.
Tell us about yourself!
This is a captivating listen from the start. It is told alternately in the past and present, but does not divulge the true secret until the end. The historical times are well researched; always a plus when trying to keep the story believable. As told, many of the clues to the secret are already waiting for the seekers to put them together.
My favorite Kate Morton so far.
Caroline Lee, as usual, gives an outstanding performance.
Married mother of three teenagers, back to work after 15 years at home - when I read a lot. Now I am the assistant to the Mayor of Omaha and work at least 60 hours a week, and on top of what I have to do at home - no more books. This lets me listen to the classics, the latest, whatever I want. I can learn or escape. I have always love audio books, but now I NEED them.
There is history, mystery, love and war. This is the most frustratingly wonderful book I have ever experienced, (so much so, I made up the word frustratingly.) I could not wait to see what revelation was next, and really was pulling for all of the main characters. I say that because there is not just one perspective. We get to see some of the events from multiple angles, and this is great, not tedious as some can make it. Because there is a mystery of sorts that is being figured out, I cannot give too many details. I can say to anyone who likes this era of history or mysteries, run, do not walk your credit to this book, but especially women whose moms are getting older or have recently left us. This will have a special pull for you, I am certain of it.
