no. I only listen to books once because I already know how they will end.
I don't remember.
I don't know.
no. I enjoyed it, though.
not memorable, but it got me through two 20-mile runs! That's pretty good.
I did not read the print version. I am a professional artist and listen while I paint.
The plot was gripping! I also love how the the mystery-solve was "revealed" in a slow, and story-worthy way. None of the typical "let's just blurt out all the explanations in the last chapter" sort of thing. The story was so interesting. There were surprises around every corner. Never a dull moment!
I have not listened to her before, but I will again!! Her accents were very well performed and she had the ability to transform her voice into each characterization. I loved listening to her.
I wish I could have! It was that good! A couple of times I was listening alone at night and had to turn to music so that I could keep from getting spooked!
I was hooked on this book from the start. I recommend it for anyone who likes detective mysteries. I was definitely surprised by the ending!
Touch and Go was great. ! It would be helpful for you to read Love You More first, it will give you more background aobut one of the main characters. I have enjoyed all of Lisa Gardner books I have listened to, but this has got to be on of my favorites. Lots of surprizes all the way to the end. Great reader.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I have always loved Lisa's books. I loved getting a glimpse of DeDe and the continuation of Tessa's story, I am looking forward to more about her. This story was sad, depressing and not your usual happy ending. The story was suspenseful and kept me guessing to the very end.
I don't have alot of interest in the failure of the family, that is why I found this story so sad and depressing. The good thing is this is fiction, well written to have abused my emotions so sorely.
I love Elisabeth...she adds heart and soul to the story. I love her as Georgina the succubus.
This story was not a happy one, no usual happy ending. It was sad and depressing to watch the betrayel unfold.
*Given* that it was about a Back Bay family. I lost count how many times the word "given" was used, along with "let alone"; I think this might be a case where even the great Stephen King would allow the use of the forbidden thesaurus (I suppose Mr. King made that remark only to discourage those with a poor command of their own language from getting into writing or at least to encourage them to pay closer attention to their native tongue and work on improving it). Vocabulary aside, it doesn't take long for any fan of crime fiction to zero in on the suspect and the motive; I've seen police procedurals on TV with better plots. The author's attempt at a metaphor with "orange" was also pretty lame. The only scene that featured any decent writing was the one about the cinnamon rolls--Ms. Gardner just might have a career in food writing. The narration was competent overall, but would have been better without the artificial r-dropping; the male voices were no more convincing.
Lisa Gardner is one of my favorite authors and I would love to talk her up to say what some others did. I found this book good, not mind blowing. Entertaining, not stunning. Completely disfunctional family, I really liked no one or have an empathy for any of them. Their lives were one mistake after another. I was able to figure out certain parts that I am assuming were supposed to be twists, so no surprises there. No one emerged the victor and found the pshyco 'Nick' , a little over the top. I did have the ending figured out or at least a probability half way thru, then 3/4 thru I was pretty sure.
So decent enough, wasn't disappointed, but not high fiving Lisa Gardner either. Some of her other books will stay my favorites. Glad to see another from her tho.
too fluffy for my tastes
no but will stay away from gardner
not really but did listen to the whole thing but if I missed a few minutes here and there didn't rewind
I'm an avid listener always searching for another good book and willing to share my thoughts with a pithy review.
Just when you think you have things figured out, she pulls the plug and off you go chasing the next suspect. I enjoyed the journey.
The story is very well written as it offers a glimpse into the secrets that are kept within a family and sometimes from ourselves. This is fast-paced thriller with several characters but even with the constantly moving story line it is easy to keep everyone straight (as far as who is who) and leaves you REALLY wanting to know what can happen next!
Sometimes characters from previous novels confuse or even bore a reader/listener but this was so well written that it can be read by someone who has never heard of Lisa Gardner (are there any left out there?) so I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fast and fabulous read!
Also, I must add that this narrator is extremely talented and I hope she is used for further work- previous LG books weren't quite as enjoyable in audio format due to the narration. Elisabeth Rodgers even makes a fine story even better! Enjoy!
