This story is gripping. Heartwrenching, heartbreaking and good. I like every thing about the storyline,characters. Even if it scared the stuffing outta me. NR's bad guys are terrifying. The narration was really good. However, I had to "adjust" myself to enjoy some of the voices. The narrator did a great job of givng each character their own voice. Not all are easy to listen to but she did a great job. This story scared me silly. And I did not figure it out. I would like to listen again but I am not sure I can. Scary but really good story.
Ms. Scott writes individual stories about people who are linked in ways. She writes a smart dialog. I had so much fun with this series. I so hope your future are this entertaining. They were each different, you know how to hook the interest at the very beginning. I really had fun with these characters. Their love stories are great. I will be looking for more books from author+narrator. Narrator was just wonderful.
The very beginning....
Highly prized by me. I am picky about narration and loved her voice, She gave each character their own voice and I appreciate that. Can't be easy.
If the author is Wharton it is a classic. This story has been told before and since but each author shares their particular flavor of writing.
For me it is the question of why the girl cannot be beloved by both. For she was beloved by both. Why does there always have to be a bad guy. I understood the emotional struggle but just once can we not write a story in which all are magnamous.
*The moment Adeline makes the decision Charlotte cannot marry. And follows thru on that decision by changing the rest of her life. I had to wonder about the emotions leading to that. That could have been the wall remaining a lifetime. Maybe Charlotte regretted sharing her secret with her most trusted relative. Or maybe she savored telling her. This book could be discussed a lot.
This was my first with this narrator. I had some problems separating the characters by sound.
Yes I did.
If you have never suffered a loss so horrible you cannot accept the reality, you may think this is beyond what can happen. I can't say I enjoyed this book, I figured it out pretty early on, but I had to know what happened to the characters. I believe this story was well written and well narrated.
Easy by Tammara Webber, sort of.
She is a very very good narrator. I have listened to her in several stories. She is easy to listen to and gives each person a voice allowing me to separate the characters easily.
Yes, I cried. I laughed too.
Worth the credit. I admit the titled bothered me until I the light bulb went off and I realized "Flat Fin".
Rankings are hard, let's see. I am pretty sure I will listen to it again even if just to listen to Caroline Lee. This is my favorite book about Paris and actually living there. I have bought several and found them trite, boring or ridiculous. Somewhere in the top 100, for now.
The 40th birthday party for Frederic. Vacationing with him in Australia...hilarious. The job covering fashion week. Her interview with the designer. The party where she gave up on the hosts and served the champagne.
Caroline Lee is among my top 5 narrators. She elevates everything she reads. I absolutely love her voice. She is able to bring a story to life.
I believe the total work from her struggle to decide to move there, and everything she endured and grew from each experience she found herself. I admired her tenacity I know I would have left. I am certain it was her love for Frederic but she didn't really talk about that very much.
I enjoyed this book, I measure that by whether I am able to listen straight through or I stop it often. I listened to this pretty much straight thru, I asked myself if it was the narration or the story. I enjoyed it and it doesn't really matter. It was memorable, I will listen to it again. Worth the credit. Thank you.
I hate this submissive crap. Please girls don't be brainwashed.
self respect does not come in this package. I don't like this trend, I don't like young women thinking this is the way to be treated. I love excitement as much as the next person but this is not the path. I bought this for I think 2.00, not worth a nickel.
I have been looking for books based in France. Being severly visually impaired I loved the concept presented of a 16 year old blind girl, her father built a replica of Paris, she memorized it. Only in a book. But this book was about mans inhumanity to man/women/children, I couldn't handle it. It was mental suffering for me, also I couldn't keep some the characters separated. For me, it was just too depressing.. the writing seemed good. I couldn't handle the content.
I don't think I realized how short this story was...I may not have wanted to use a credit for it. However it was worth the credit for the pleasure. Loved this narrator hope I hear her again. This is a fantasy and it allows you to enjoy it. I loved it. Rock star happens to meet girl...love at first sight. Dreamy.....
The storyline is not a new. But it has a different angle I guess. I just really enjoyed the love story part of these two characters. I am not so young so the sex became a bit much. I wanted to know how they worked things out. It is worth the credit. A good listen. A good narrator. I love good dialog and this one was good.
I enjoyed this book. It was about a magical lineage. I found it to be quite interesting. 3 women, their lives, the challenges. It was a really good storyline. The narrator was also very professional. I liked it and it was worth the credit but something I cannot put my finger on was missing. I have no idea what. I listened in one sitting. The beginning captured me.
Good story but not memorable. This book takes on an old legend of the seals. It reminded me of a lot of books from my 20's and that was a while ago. It was good, the author knew how to bring it to a tense climax! Worth the credit, Good narration.
