I'm from the South, Alabama in fact and I loved this book. The Help is my new favorite and this falls into a close second. The story is so engaging and funny at all the right times. I love a story that can make you laugh, cry and appreciate family and this book did all three.
Ms. Jackson has found a place in heart and in my audible collection. I am making my way through all of her works and I have yet to be disappointed.
Kirby's smug attitude and voice almost killed this audio book for me.
I don't say this often, but I would have preferred reading the book. The audio version left me irritated.
With other Emily Giffin books I have been excited to recommend them to friends to read. However, this book left me feeling empty, wanting more. Without spoiling the book for others I'll just say that this book did not end wrapped up with a pretty little bow, or with the clue/hint of a second book. Not cool!
I didn't read the print version.
When the bells and whistles went off in my head and I figured out who the killer was. Very exciting twist.
No, I haven't, but if I see her listed as the narrator, I will be more inclined to listen.
The only thing that I didn't like about this book was that Jessie's story was not fully developed, I don't like to be left wondering.
For some people I know it's hard to listen to a book and work. For me this keeps me on track, and I don't have to listen to the hysterics of my coworkers. This book totally grabbed me and I listened to every word carefully as not to miss a thing. The subject was relevant to current events and made me more aware of the other side of things that you don't see on TV regarding foreclosures. So the time listening was very well spent.
Mickey Haller is my kind of guy and after seeing the Lincoln lawyer with Matthew McConaughey I can picture him when I'm reading the books and that's a great picture.
Yes, Yes, and Yes. Matthew McConaughey should continue to play Mickey. I also enjoyed the chemistry between Matthew and Marisa Tomei.
I enjoyed the book and the characters were multidimensional. The ending was so unexpected, but oh so good!
James Patterson became a quick favorite when I began to read the Alex Cross series, then I discovered the Women's Murder Club and I started from the beginning. The first books in the WMC series were very thought out and detailed. In the 11th Hour things felt rushed, the two crime story lines did not mesh well. I would rather wait longer for a book release and enjoy the quality of the work instead of spending time and money on a work that I don't find enjoyable and may cause to delay purchasing new books or not reading at all.
I am a long time fan of Mrs. Roby, and I have read all of her books. This is the first time I have ever been disappointed. Curtis Black is no ordinary minister and his wife is not your average first lady. This book never grasped my full attention and the characters were "boring". I kept waiting for something, anything to happen, and it didn't. By the time the book wrapped up I was bitter. I wasted a credit on this. It happens to the best of us. I expected more and felt that this book was rushed. I expected more from the Black family and this seem like a formula that has already been used. Sorry Kimberla, you lost me with this one.
Engaging, dreamy, Striking
The history of the characters, you didn't have to guess, all the questions were answered. That's always great. Sometimes you need more, this was everything I needed in one book.
Abigal was my favorite, but I enjoyed all of the characters. I will definitely look for other performances by this narrator.
I was emotionally attached to this book from chapter one. Some books are not very engaging in the beginning they have to get there. Not The Witness, it covered all grounds and had me from the start.
This was my first Nora Roberts book. I read a lot of reviews before selecting this novel, I will go back and listen to or read some of her earlier works based on my satisfaction with this book.
