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.
Totally addicted to Audible.
I won't disagree that this is not Nora Roberts' best but I always enjoy characters that overcome their circumstances. Narrator was not my favorite but not detracting either.
Basically it's unbelievable. Roberts must have had a great massage and thought describing it was enough. Characters not interesting.
No, but narration was Ok . You can't do much with a boring 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.
you can't find a better narrator on Audible than this guy! He is amazing. The story was fun, interesting and suspenseful. I enjoyed it very much but enjoyed the narration as much as the story, it was great and I was sorry when it ended.
Nothing comes to mind, I really loved it because it felt very different.
Loved the main character, the surfer police man and the cop named Frost. Just loved the way he could do the voices and it felt natural, not forced.
Great story, great characters!
Really enjoyed the performer. Made the story come to life.
Yes. I originally bought this book with a different narrator. I had a hard time getting invested sin the story. Since this was rereleased with Luke Daniels as the narrator, I redownloaded and was much happier with it. I wish there was some way Audible could let buyers know when a book was done with a different narrator.
Most of Nora Roberts mystery type books have a similar flavor. I enjoy them enough that I usually listen to them at least a couple of times a year and never get tired of them.
When Abra fights off her attacker.
Once again, narration is key to enjoying a book.
I love Nora Roberts books but the use of a male for narration is off-putting. Although the main character is male, the author is a female and writes with a female voice and perspective. Luke Daniels makes the female characters sound whiney and weak. If you want to enjoy the book, you are better off reading it rather than listening to it.
One great read
Abra - she was so positive and full of life and energy
Not sure I have ever listened to any of his performances, but I will be looking for them now. He made the book flow and each person an individual entity that you could tell apart just by his voice. Wonderful performance on this book.
