I haven't read the print version, so I can't compare, but the audio version was excellent. The dialogue between the family members was extremely well performed by Dick Hill and at times, I laughed out loud.
The conversations between the parents and the siblings were at times funny and at times shocking, but always entertaining.
Its the first book of Hill's that I have listened to, but I don't think it will be the last. Pat Conroy read the preface only, and at first I was disappointed he didn't read the book.Now I see why he didn't. There was a wonderful variety of "voices" that only a professional like Dick Hill could have delivered with such perfection. Many times I totally forgot that Pat Conroy was not reading, because Hill did such a wonderful job capturing the sarcasm, bitterness, pain and love in the voices.
Yes. Every free minute, I was plugged in and was sorry when it was over.
Its an amazing testimony to the power of forgiveness and love that Don Conroy was loved and mourned by so many people. It was also interesting, though not surprising to learn that Pat Conroy was similar to his father in many ways, minus the physical abuse to his loved ones. It was a fascinating followup to The Great Santini.
I've read many books by Nora Roberts and have enjoyed all of them up until this book.
I'm also a big fan of Susan Eriksen. I think I'd review the plot description more carefully before I buy another one of her novels.
possibly. I don't generally like police drama and this had way too much of it.
She's good, but there were times I wasn't sure who was talking during the dialog.
I liked Duncan- but he was too good to be believable
This is the first Nora Roberts book I've ever not enjoyed, and I've read many of them. I'm also a big fan of Susan Ericksen as a narrator. I found this book boring and fast forwarded through much of it.
After all the glowing reports I read for this book, I was surprised that I found this book so tedious.Most of the book was badly written foreplay, very trite and overused descriptions. The plot was ridiculous, with very little action squeezed between sexual encounters.
Won't be anything by this author
no easy fix for this book
This book bored me.
I would not recommend it to a friend. The weak ending ruined the story
The book was good, up until the conclusion, which was hastily and unsatisfactorily written.
The characters were likable, but my impression of the book was diminished due to the
abrupt ending, which was totally out of character for Ford and Isabel .
No. It was boring- 90% sex and 10% plot. I have nothing against good sex scenes but they lacked imagination-- used the same dialogue and descriptors in to may scenes. Only the venue was unique. For smart people they behaved stupidly.
I liked the first two books so much I pre-ordered this concluding book. Reading this book soured my view of the series,
I completed the book out of curiosity, but kept looking at the chapter index to see how many more I had to endure until it concluded.
The book lacked a story line. Chapter after chapter of explicit sex scenes gets boring after a while. Now that I think back, the other Maya Banks books I've read, they all seem to suffer from the same problem. I don't think I'll read any more of her books.
Simon Prebble is a wonderful narrator, but this story was too predictable. Lucifer was too much like his brother and cousins, and his love interest was too much like those of the other Cynsters. It got tiresome.
It was the first time I fast forwarded portions of a book because the dialogue was so tedious.
The development of Honoria's and Marcus' relationship- but it was way to drawn out.
As always, she was excellent
The pace of the novel was too slow and then tied up too quickly at the end
The story was good, and the narrator's brogue was melodic
everything- the characters, their values, the unwrapping of the story
There were so many complaints about the narrator. I thought there was plenty of emotion in his voice and he was able to go back and forth between America and Irish accents
the last chapter was so beautiful, I listened to it twice.
