Yes, I was kept on the edge of my seat! This story was in many ways unique, how can someone really think they know the day they will die when they've prepared for it in so many ways? Who and why could be killing off her friends and want her to be next? I kept thinking I knew, only to be let down by finding I hadn't figured it out. And really, knowing what you know or think you know how could there really be an unexpected ending after all?
This is the first time I've listened to a performance by Kirsten Potter and I really enjoyed it. She tricks your mind into thinking you are really hearing different people talk and think. It won't be my last, as I did enjoy it and tend to consider the narrator when I am choosing my next purchase.
I highly recommend this book to other mystery and suspense lovers out there!
This book ranks in my top few favorite listens so far. Tana French is an artist that deserves high praise. The imagination required to dream up this very different murder mystery is second to none. The characters are portrayed with depth and forethought. I never guessed what was next and had a time putting this story down while never wanting it to end! The narration by Heather O'Neill was excellent and I look forward to hearing from her more.
I probably would listen to this again after some time. I truly enjoyed the story and the narrator!
I enjoyed the telling of how Tessa and her husband met and the romance that followed even though this is primarily a who done it!
I wouldn't listen to this book in one sitting because part of the enjoyment is thinking about the story and characters throughout the day. Take your time and enjoy. I would recommend this book and author to everyone that like a really good mystery.
I was very disappointed through out. It was too long for the story. I basically had this figured out early on and really didn't waver. I love longer books but only if they hold my interest and this just didn't.
I really did like most of the characters. Jacob has an interesting disability (not sure about that strong of a word, but best I can come up with) and supposedly people with Asbergers cannot tell a lie, at least that's so for Jacob.
Considering the length of this book the end poof, story is done. It seemed like just another page.
No, but maybe as revenge to an enemy. 😉
This was more of a performance because each character had his/her own part to read. I have nothing but good to say about the narration.
No way: I cannot imagine what else could follow.
I really like police procedural stories and this certainly was this story. If you also like this sort of book, have a a special interest in Aspergers or just love Jodi Picoult's books them please read it and enjoy!
Different, timeless, fantasy.
When Lena realized what she was feeling was love and it was worth fighting for, breaking the law for, a reason to live and leave.
This is not necessarily a book I would have been drawn to, but the reviews were so good and intriguing I thought I'd give it a try and I'm glad I did! Give it some time if at first you are not sure, as was I, about the style of writing. MIT was well worth the credit and the time spent.
I could listen to this again after a while...it was a good, not dark, not just like the rest of the books out there, story. I look forward to the rest of the books in this series!
It's not so much the edge of your seat sort of story. A mystery was being solved, a few mysteries actually, but it was more laying the foundation of a detective's life leading up to this case. Surprisingly intertwined characters in the end.
This series could have been written last year or ten years ago, but it doesn't matter like it does with current-time stories. Some of the series that were started in the nineties or early 2000's are dated, but this being a period piece you don't feel like its outdated.
The constant thought of what's next? This loving husband, loving wife(?), a mistress(?) stalkers? What really happened? Who is telling the truth? What is the truth?
Go...the truly honest one...
Not really, I enjoyed thinking through the story and characters when I wasn't listening.
I did really enjoy this book. The way the story was written, from each main character's side and hearing his and her's story in alternate chapters. The story was fresh and the plot, while dark, was also new.
The surprises in this book continued from beginning to end. I always enjoy the magic that Nicholas Sparks brings to his books and this one was, in my opinion, one of the best. This book had a little more suspense and mystery than other books by this writer.
Ms. Lowman's narration was excellent. She has such a great ability to go between men, women and children and make you feel that there really are several different people performing this story.
The mysterious woman next door. I would like to know what she learned about the place she lived before she moved back to this town. 😉
This was a great listen! I loved the way this woman overcame her upbringing and the horrible night that sent her running. Weaving the security business she created into the story was intriguing. The author did a great job at keeping me guessing about the people that entered her life...are they the good guys or not?
I enjoyed the performance. Anytime I can listen to a good book and have the feeling that there are a whole host of performers instead of the single narrator I will seek out the narrator again. Julia Whelan is one of those narrators!
I love the wide range of stories Nora Roberts brings to book lovers such as myself.
I thought this book just drug on too long. I enjoy the longer novels, but this was too slow. I finally gave up near the end when I realized there were still over 90 minutes left and I still didn't care how it ended.
I wouldn't recommend this one. As previously stated it was slow.
I enjoyed David Colacci for the first time and would purchase a book he performed again. I like his strong, smooth voice and his various voices for different characters added some goodness to this book.
I would recomemd with the caveat that its strictly another way to enjoy Monk.
I would have to it was Monk! The narrator did a fine job. When I can close my eyes and see a character at any piont in the book then the narrator did his/hers job well and that's what Laura Hicks delivers.
