Yes. I like all of the Nora Roberts books that I've listened to. There are enough twists that it's not a straight line to the ending like some books. I was very surprised at the ending.
That although there was some predictability, the ending wasn't what I'd expected.
I haven't listened to any of his work that I'm aware of. I would have no problem with him being the narrator. He did a very good job. Enough difference so I could tell which character was suppose to be speaking.
I think it was a toss up between the two main characters, Tucker and Caroline. Tucker, because I really didn't want to like him since he seemed to think of women as interchangeable for his purposes. I did end up liking the character as the book started to show more depth of character.
Caroline because she finally started to show some backbone and became more of her own person rather than what was chosen for her.
If you can, get the unabridged version. It's much better.
I enjoyed the interaction between all the characters. The story line is very interesting and kept me listening.
I think Nora Roberts Sanctuary. It has similar suspense and character dynamics that keep it interesting.
I would prefer not. There just wasn't any emotion. I couldn't tell the difference in many of the characters and there were many times that a sentence blended with the next one so it was hard to make sense of what was being said.
It may have been with someone else reading.
I have many Nora Roberts (as well as many other authors) and even if you have a strong story, if the narrator doesn't do a good job, it detracts considerably from the book.
I have many audiobooks and this rates mid way through all of them.
I enjoy the connection of a group of women and their friendship over time.
I would prefer not to. I have all the books in this series , so I've listened to more of her than I care for. I can usually blank out the narrator if necessary and just go with the story, but I found myself thinking "This is really awful". She's okay when just reading but lousy at the voices.
I have this series in ebook format but wanted to be able to listen to the series while doing other things. I did not like this narrator nor the one in the previous book. It certainly detracts from the listening experience.
I have many books by Sherryl Woods and just purchased another one. No problem with her work.
Lack of differences in voices. Not very good character voices.
Since I have the whole series, I know there are other books that tie in to this.
I really get sick of the whole theme of men cheating on "the love of their lives". I'm sorry, but if you really do love someone , you can't justify having so little respect for that person that it's alright to do that. Just to be completely fair, I also don't think too much of the female cheating on the male.
Once again, it wasn't the book itself that was bad, it was the narrator. If you can get over that, it's worth listening to. I have read this series of books several times and wanted to be able to listen to it while I work. The first book in the series (The Last Enemy) had a much better narrator and was very enjoyable.
Most of the books I've purchased have had pretty good narrators. A few have had really bad narrators. This is one of those.
Horrible voices. Can't really explain how awful it is , but if I hadn't read the book and listened to the first one , I wouldn't have finished it.
Story was great. Good author. Would buy other books by this author, but not with this narrator.
Can't decide. Really didn't like the male lead at all. He seemed to be a self-centered arrogant *******. I like the basic plot but it's hard to get into a story where it's as easy to detest the supposed hero as the villain. And I'd like to shake the female and ask where her pride is.
I've listened to several of her books, which is why I got this one. I don't know that I will listen to this one again.
I like his performance as the males. I think it is difficult to have a man do a woman's voice without it sounding simpering or unintelligent.
Would rather not. And if it was , certainly not with the "stars" there are to choose from today.
Most of Diana Palmer's book have quite a bit of political leanings in them. I could do without the whole green, immigration and class soapboxes. I like the stories enough to buy quite a few books, but they would be just as enjoyable without some elements.
Didn't read print version.
This is not my usual sort of book, so I can't really compare it to others I've read.
He has a very engaging voice. A little bit of accent and a nice mellow flow of speaking.
I think Gabby. She has a deep down earthiness that I liked.
I watched the Notebook and cried my eyes out ( I have no idea why this is a good thing). I thought I'd try more of Nicholas Sparks work and since I listen to a lot of books, this was the way to go. Again, I cried through parts of it, not knowing for sure how it would end. Glad I wasn't listening at work :) I really enjoyed all of this book and went back and bought four more of his books. Well worth the credit.
Interesting, twisting and romantic.
Maybe Nora Roberts Blue Smoke. Although not quite as gripping as Nora Roberts work, it has the same kind of elements..... trying to figure out who the real bad guy is even though you know the main characters will end up together. Plenty of chemistry and the female lead is not a screaming sissy.
I've listened to Nora Roberts Three Sisters Trilogy several times and really enjoy this narrator. There is enough difference in the characters so you don't have to guess who is suppose to be speaking.
Surprisingly, it was when Katie was talking to Mack's daughter. While there was no great drama, the way she let her know that maybe it was time to let her father have his own life was very gentle and insightful.
Nora Roberts work is my favorite and I have most of her audible books, but I've recently started listening to Jayne Krentz and enjoy it enough to now have most of her work as well. I will definitely be on the look out for more of her books.
Since I have close to 700 audiobooks, it's hard to rate it exactly. I am very fond of Nora Roberts , so this is close to the top.
I think maybe High Noon. Strong female lead, lots of suspense, good character interaction and good narrators.
I think she did a great job on making the voice of each character seem different from the one before. You got a sense of different people. She didn't make the male voices sound as though it was a female doing them. I like her work.
I really enjoyed the fact that when Bo (who had been searching for Reena for years) looked up and see's her next door, he recognized her as the girl he'd dreamed of since college. For all you romantics out there, it's a moment!
I have listened to this book a number of times and always enjoy it. It does have some particularly graphic scenes in it, so you might want to skip over them if you have trouble dealing with that kind of realism. I will listen to this many more times. Well worth the credit.
Apparantly this series is pretty popular, but I think it is for someone younger.
I haven't read the books, just listened to many hours of the first audiobook. I cannot imagine why anyone would put in so many "holy cows, holy s***, holy crap and that's hot". And the constant references to her inner goddess was annoying.
Although the lead female was suppose to be young and somewhat innocent, the whole valley girl persona was off putting.
I don't think that I would get to the part where I needed to edit it. It really isn't for me at all. I have hundreds of audiobooks and I think this is one of my least favorites. Will not be listening to anymore of it.
I have listened to many books, some with very erotic passages, so have no problems with graphic sexual content. I just really didn't like anything about this book.
