Yes. The story kept momentum.
The good guys win - they always do with a Reacher story.
I think it was the recording of the performance by Dick Hill. Mr. Hill's reading of the story, his moderate Russian accents were well executed, but I think the tonal quality could have been enhanced a bit more. It sounded a bit tin-ny, even with a new set of Sony Earphones.
How in this world could they have cast Tom Cruise as a blonde 230 pound 6'5" Jack Reacher?
Harry Bosch is the kind of detective that you will either love to have on your side or hate to have on your side. In this installment of the series, Harry is paired with a brand new detective and because of her, he embarks on another quest for the truth. The answers to the riddles came unsuspectingly, and some never came at all. I won't spoil the ending but I certainly will be looking for what Harry does next.
This book had such a similar premise to the author's other book, otherwise engaged, that I almost gave up on it after the first couple of chapters. But I pressed on, hoping that the story would be redeemed. It was not her best work. Unless you really like the genre, and will read anything of this. period,, I would forgo this book. I must also comment on the narrator whose voice I felt was a bit distracting and not as refined as I felt it should have been. I had the impression that the main character, Charlotte, was much older than her 20+ years.
The story was a sweet one. I did get tired of Jenny always talking about her sad Johnny who was killed in the war. It was sort of a surprise ending. the sound quality was distracting at first but I ignored it as best I could because I wanted to finish the story.
This is my second flowers novel and I enjoyed both of them. the distinct male view is refreshing after some chick lit. girls just need to hear a guy. Virgil is intuitive, smart, and yes he always gets his man.
Amazing. An intelligent woman, is actually attractive to an English gentleman. Cute story, although a common premise, with a dash of mystery to entice. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this story on my commute.
narrator needs to match tone with the dialogue.
story was enjoyable and intriguing. I see another story in the making with the policeman...
I just finished listening to this story on my 24 mile commute. So engaged was I in the story of Sophia and John, and Carrie and Graham that the miles flew by and I was transported to Scotland each morning and evening. Many of the novels that are considered historical romance can be somewhat formulaic. Kudos to Ms. Kearsley for making this story so engrossing with nary a hint at what was to be the ending. Thanks also for the richness of the history, making it not a backdrop but a telling of the struggle of the Jacobites and of Scotland's fight to remain independent.
happy ending. Sh#% was used so often that it seemed careless. perhaps I'm just from a different generation.
dick hill remains as one of the best narrators I've heard.
this story shows how we can see what we except to see but still miss the whole point.
I can't think of anything short of rewriting the entire story that would make me score this 4 or 5 stars.
Yes, but more cautiously.
Not much. He did ok - I gave him 3 stars.
Many of what I considered gratuitous sex scenes.
This story isn't a mystery - it started out so, but there wasn't any unfolding of anything more than characters that couldn't get me to feel anything for them - good or bad. The pregnancy was so predictable, the end to the villains was predictable. I bought it several months ago, got to a third, and just had to stop what had become noise in my head. I finally picked it up again after finishing another book and I found myself forwarding the chapters just to get through this book. Sorry Mr. Follett.
