yes! the audible version really animates the characters and gives them more color and style.
fun, romance, excitement! everything from the mundane (house cat, bothersome neighbor) to the glamourous (diamonds! yachts! upperclass Brit gentleman!). the main character is smart and she knows it...and beautiful and sexy but she doesn't know it! fun story of her being drawn into things and drawn out of her shell. a very satisfying close to the story.
different personalities evident for each of the characters. the performance really got across a feel for how people are...with each one different. loved the personality used for the main character.
... also did a nice job differentiating the British from the South African accents, which is a challenge!
get it and enjoy it!!
the story lives up to the expectations set by Sharon Sala's other books. the narrator hits just the right note - capturing the nuances and subtleties of the characters and moments, without being over the top. for those who are new to Sharon Sala, this is a great place to start.
The intricate plot, with changes and surprises at every turn. It really grips your attention.
The story could run the risk of being seen as overly sentimental, but it steers clear of that. the narrator really helps keep this grounded, so you can relate to the different characters and feel them as fully-detailed individuals with a range of moods and emotions.
yes, it is completely in keeping with Sala's style
no, this was more one to do over a few sessions
can't wait to listen to some other Sala books!
