You are the sum of what you read!
I found myself so involved in the narration and story that during a particularly suspenseful section, I was sweating!
I doubt it. Bad writing.
All of them.
The dialogue must have repeated itself over and over and over....again till you thought, Huh? It was just taking up space for bad writing. Plus, no one would act like this in a real situation. It was ridiculous. I had to stop after a chapter because it was too silly to suspend my imagination that far.
The story was everything I know Karen Robards to be as a writer, The slight lisp of the narrator was annoying because the main characters name was Sam which sounded like Stham, However I could have gotten over it if the narrator had different voices for different characters. Overall GREAT STORY just couldn't get over the bad read.
Where Sam and her boy had to get out of the house.
Not now, I dont know if she is a new reader but if she is I will be willing to listen to another after she has gotten a few books done and has a grasp on how to make the characters stand out.
Read more of Karens books:)
The story was very interesting, Narrated beautifully, stayed up way too late, just could not shut it off.
Sam, she was so brave and strong yet vulnerable.
When they finally got together
Yes! Good intensity.
Characters are likable, but not cheesy.
Can't wait to read another Karen Robards book.
less sex scenes and more story line
Brad Thor or Kim harrison or Tom Clancy
no one really
disappointment, Ms Robards please stop putting so much uncalled for sex scenes in your books and start writing stories again. Please don't go down the same road as Laurell K Hamilton you are a better author then that. I'd like to say I'll read another of your books but I'm not going to I want thrillers not stories build around the next sex scene!
This writing is just as bad as the writing in "Shades of Gray".
I would not recommend this book. It has a good story but it moves too slowly and has little substance.
Expressive but annoying
No. I couldn't bear to muddle through more tedious text to learn more about these characters. I also suspect that the author does not really understand 4-year old children.
Storyline disjointed and rambling
Cry No More - Linda Howard
The reader did a good job with voices - she had child, female, male, foreign, etc.
It really dragged during escape from initial capture and during the safe house.
I have really liked this author in the past and think this is just a fluke that this one dragged and was not the usual cliff hanger.
I have read and listened to many books from Karen Robards and enjoyed them. This book has good elements of suspense and action but she goes into these long drawn out descriptions that slow the story and bore me to tears. I want to finish it but don't think I can stand anymore narrative. It feels like she was trying to add more pages to her book by repeating how the main characters are feeling over and over again. If you want to kill some time I would suggest this book.
