Loved it, a really good lawyer, court room, murder novel. Adam Grupper is just so good at the reading and all of his characters are really true to life.
Read this book when it first came out many years ago, so this was like brand new to me I really didn't remember much of the story. I enjoyed it then, I loved it now, history, romance, mystery has it all. The characters are wonderful, I lived in the North for many years and now in the South for many years and I can tell you everyone tells a different story about the war depending on where you live - North or South. Just started Book 2 and it's just as good.
Don't really know if I liked this book or not, story line was good, Amy is really an awful person but so is Nick, they DESERVE each other. Won't give away the ending but I didn't like it. It certainly keeps you guessing as to what is happening and what will happen next, but I just couldn't really get deep into it.
Suspensful, Entertaining, Great, it's always worth the wait for her books, everyone of them has been just teriffic.
Like the history, love hearing about the past and then going back to the present.
She just wants to make you keep listening, a super reader.
Can't wait for her next book
To me yes, since he did the accents so well.
Loved that it took place in places that I know.
All of them, he's just great
Would have loved to, but who has the time
Love anything by Pat Conroy.
First, I'm really glad that I listened to this book, it took a while for me to get interested in it, there were parts that were at first boring & confusing to me but I stuck with it, and in the end glad that I did. In the beginning I had no idea where this story was going, why did we need all of this "boring" info, that's what I thought but you really do need it and then when the book is done you realize that it really wasn't boring. So in a nutshell I truly think it was a very enjoyable story, learned things that I never knew and actually never thought about, give it a try, stick with it, good book.
Enjoyed this book very much, liked it because it had some history in it, how things were in the South when slavery was a way of life. Enjoyed the parts when slavery had ended to actually find out that it was still very difficult for the free slaves. Amazing what our country went through to get us where we are today. The reader was EXCELLENT!!
Excellent listen, lots of history, romance, sadness & happiness. It was a good way to learn some forgotten history that is so important and should never happen again.
MJ - NC ...... A beautiful story, a lovely history lesson. Some parts are so sad when you hear how an ethnic group of people had to suffer in the early days. That's part of history that one doesn't hear of so often. Some of the characters were actually real people in our history made it even more exciting to hear about. I actually went onto the internet to then look them up and find out more about them. Enjoyed it so very much.
Just finished listening to it, and it's still playing out in my mind, what a beautifully written and spoken book, I enjoyed it so very much. The characters were so real, during a party one can hear the music and the laughter. You can feel the pain of the people when they hit hard times, and then the ending, I hated for it to end. It's a wonderful history lesson too, about war, hard times, shell shock, just the difference from then to now.
Read the book, or shall I say listen to the book, you will come away with a beautiful experience I promise you. MJ
