The Watchers weaves biblical and Swiss history through a maze of interesting characters and mysterious mysteries. The unique characters and plot twists are sure to keep you interested while you absorb a very interesting history lesson on the book of Enoch. A very intruiging story mixed with loveable and interesting characters make this a must read.
One of my favorite parts of the book was the interaction between Ms. Taylor and Rochat. The hardened madam and the innocent and hearthwarming young man make for a great story line. I loved character Steele built in Rochat. His innocence and outside-the-box perspective on life really made for an interesting change. It is a nice twist to all the hard and unforgiving characters we read about in other mystery/historical fiction novels.
Rochat was the best character. It is a hard character to portray in a convincing manner. But I think Mr. Davis pulled it off splendidly.
You never know who is watching.
I would shy away from readin EL James again. It seems to me that she is a new writer who hasn't quite developed a good foundation of creative and unique words. I was frustrated hearing the same expressions and cliche descriptions over and over. I can handle a writer of average talent. And I have never labelled an author as subpar. however, James is deserving of that review.
No, for reasons mentioned above.
She had a nice voice but you can't sugar coat crap. She was reading a poorly written novel. I wouldn't hesitate to listen to another novel read by Becca. There were sometimes when I felt more emotion could have been injected into certain parts of the book. But she did a good job considering the recording was done last minute due to poor choice of the first narrator.
All I can say is nice try, but I am not even sure why this book was published.
Save your money. I'm sure there will be a movie...
