I had not realised how good this audio book was until I discovered the next few I tried to listen. Not this one, I was hood from beginning to end and the readers voice was clear. Excellent, Great entertainment, well written. One of the best.
My husband would love this book too.
Not sure if I have heard him before,nut his reading was excellent.
Neither. It was a beautiful listening experience.
Highly recommend this audio book. I far preferred the ending to the one I recall in the film. My memory may have slipped and I just don't recall the film as well as I might.
Offensive that authors show rape as being something women enjoy or something that a man who supposedly loves a woman likes to do and she likes it. I'm sorry, sex in bondage with the woman saying no is rape and not lovemaking and I am totally appalled this is churned out to women as romance.
Turned me off this author.
I cannot get my head out of my fury that she wrote a rape scene as romantic to think of anything good to say about this author.
Any suggestion that forced sex with a woman's hands cuffed against her will and saying NO is something she is going to enjoy. That is totally offensive. Not only that it is dangerous as it suggests a woman should be degraded as being good. I cannot express how appalled I was by that scene strongly enough.
If it were a physical book it would have been thrown at the wall. I will be advising people NOT to buy a Nora Roberts book.
Giving it 5 stars for historical fiction. In any other genre I would have rated it a 3 as I would consider it more a series of related short stories or novellas than a novel. These stories were somewhat tied up at the end and as I enjoyed hearing the history I stayed interested. As a book, if I had been reading, I would have preferred a faster moving, more interwoven plot. The history was accurate to the times. Great.
Hearing of the 1960s WA and having my memories of the time and place rekindled.
Good. His vice for several females obviously was not idea, however no one reader can be everything.
Hmmm—it would need editing tighter before it was fit to be a film. A film audience would want to focus on one main story and not a series of stories.
I think it needed content editing to appeal to more readers.
I loved it. I loved the character of the country and the people. As I didn't know the story the plot twist at the end was good. The work needs to be listened to as true to the location and times and the style of the writer. I did that and loved the my first encounter with an Australian classic.
Rural Western Australia, the character Bony and the story.
He is an excellent narrator. Five star.
I have bought more of this authors work and will watch for Peter Hosking’s narration and buy again.
I could not enjoy the story due to the poor editing. I had to discard listening in the early part .A character was described as 'looking out a window while walking around a room doing various things.' All that was said in one sentence.Aside from the visual image of a buffoon walking into furniture trying to do things with their head cranked around looking out a window, I''m supposed to believe that an intelligent character was doing that. A good editor would have pointed out the wisdom of separating the actions. When I struck the second such poorly constructed sentence that even a program such as Grammarly would have pointed out was clumsy construction, I returned the book for a refund.
