I listened to it on fast just to get it over with. The characters weren't at all believable to me. Also, yeah, you figure out who done it pretty quick. I think Nora just fell off my auto buy list.
I have already listened to it 3 times. Even knowing the ending, The way the story twists and turns makes me want to listen again and again!
The love story between Abra and Eli.
Hester - Grandmother to Eli.
I wish I could have listened in one sitting. Listened to some at work - hated it when someone would ask a question and I had to pause the book.
happily ever afters
The story could easily have been told in 10 hours by a better narrator.
Far too much was said/done that didn't propel the story forward in a timely manner.
Wouldn't you know one of the few times I find a male narrator who can successfully pull off a female voice is a dud as a hero. Where are James Daniels, Jack Garrett, Steve West & Dennis Boutsikaris when you need them?
While several scenes differed in setting, their purpose ended in the same results - more of the same. Thereby the story didn't progress fast enough.
A good audio book has me glued to my audio device, absolutely can't miss a word. Meaning I've got to stop/start & some times back up because our home sweet home runs like Grand Central Station. But when I can leave the room for a snack or prepare for bed, including an arsenal of miracle promising potions, while the book plays on and on, return to discover I haven't missed a thing, then this isn't a good story.
Whiskey Beach is the best of the best, as you know Nora Roberts. It started out very slow, but from reading many of Nora Roberts books, I know they start out slow and then you just cannot stop listening. I recommend this book for young adults on through whatever age you are. The reader was fantastic, I would listen to any book that he read. This is a must read book.
While the story was good, the narrator was awful. The womens' voices sound like a man making an obnoxious sing-song attempt to sound like a woman. Not just awful; weird.
I like the plot so I am going to force myself to finish the book. I wish the narrator read Nora Roberts' words as they were written rather than being so over the top.
I think every woman and man should read this book. It has great twist interns never expected. I love ending the book it left me with Hope for tomorrow I hope you will enjoy it as much as I have.
