    Cobi Winslow, a handsome, well-educated district attorney, knows nothing about the life of his estranged twin brother, Eric Reed, a career criminal raised in the foster-care system. Following their parents' death, Cobi searches for and finds his brother, hoping to regain lost years. Meanwhile, Cobi navigates the pressures of society as he lives life in the closet. The stress comes to a head when he learns that, in order to inherit the wealth of his father's estate, he must marry a woman before he turns 35.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Maybe another reader.The reader's attempt at using different voices for different characters was horrible!


    Would you be willing to try another book from E. Lynn Harris and R. M. Johnson ? Why or why not?

    NO!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from No One in the World?

    Didn't even finish the book before writing the review.

    Since failing to break up her best friend's marriage and fleeing Los Angeles, Jasmine is a changed woman and a Christian. She vows to attend church every Sunday, swears off married men, and begins her search for the soul mate she is sure God has on hold for her. Now living in the Big Apple, she has shed 25 pounds, shaved 10 years off her age, and filled her expensive apartment with designer clothes, all to begin her man-finding mission.

    Would you be willing to try another one of Monalisa Wilson’s performances?

    You couldn't pay me to listen to her again.


    Any additional comments?

    To say the narrator was awful is an understatement. I don't think there was any editing done. Many times you can hear her saying stop, or repeating sentences. I am very disappointed, the only reason I continued to listen was because I have done all the squeals and wanted to know the history of the characters.
