The main character - when I first began to read this book - my thoughts were ugh! But then!! It just took off with a strong woman and strong man - each out dueling the other.
The conniving thoughts of the two main characters and Kate Reading is spot on with the narration.
Oh gosh! Again, both of the main characters...her ability to interplay the voices.
YES!! Once I finally got into it...what's going to happen next? !
I wanted more of this book to learn the other characters so I HAD to buy the 2 predecessors to understand important characters referred to in this book.
Only one character reminded me of Turnip...that was the voice for the brother, but of course one can only vary the voice so much. :)
I just enjoyed this book...it took me away from reality, but it gives a dose as well.
I rank it very high and it would have been a 5 star except for some of the demented actions of the main villain. He could have been just as evil without some of the vile actions near the end of the book.
It rivals Pride and Prejudice for me even though the two books are so different.
H-m-m-mm...I liked so much of the book - to pinpoint a particular moment is hard. The Gathering chapter with the injured man - Dougal and Claire's interaction with him. Gruff men have more depth than we tend to realize. :)
I enjoyed the love story and the intrigue...perfect blend.
I'm moving onto Book 2, BUT if it has some of the same demented unnecessary evil and vile actions - I don't know that I'll continue the series.
I never read the print version
H-m-mmm...hard to say, but I'd have something to be similar to the Hellions series...too bad Hellion in Her Bed is already taken! :)
Many folks didn't care for the narrator, but I considered him to be like the main male character in Jane Eyre - he'd had family difficulties as a child and some childhood problems are difficult to overcome. And I liked the tie to the Hellions series - I re-visited How to Wed a Wild Lord. Pierce's role is consistent.
Tolstoy yes, Nadia May-Never!
The tone was lack luster and poor accent.
I couldn't finish the book because of the narrator's voice - I was disappointed - I've heard good things about the story.
The overall story and the Ghost being a different character than the other men of the times.
There were a couple of scences which made me smile...no chuckle. :)
No I haven't, but overall I enjoyed her performance even though there were a couple of characters' voices were too "stuffy" and drawn out...especially compared to the previous narrator's choices of intonation.
When one character realizes looking back is not the optimum course in life.
Well worth the "read" - ok the listen! :)
Split Second is a very good story and it ranks high with other stories I've listened to.
To some of the Pink Carnation series - just in the sense that I like intrigue and suspense with even the slightest hint of romance or a good bonding relationship.
None, but I'll keep him in the loop of authors to scout.
Some sad parts.
