I enjoyed the storyline. Yes, it was predictable but entertaining. Don't we read to be entertained? I found the narration to be irritating. Too me the characters sounded monotone, some even sounded like they were irritated all the time. The male characters came across as dorks. For me, the voice for John Risley did not match my visualization of him. I will listen to more Dorothea Benton Franks but I won't be listening to anymore Robin Miles.
I've read enough Kathy Reichs that she has become predictable but I still enjoy her books!
Typical DBF but I enjoy her writing style and her story lines. Robin Miles is not my favorite narrator but she is tolerable.
I painted the entire interior of a 2000 sf house listening to this. Made a task that I hate much more enjoyable.
Several things made listening to The Husband's Secret enjoyable. 1. I liked the way the story lines of the three main characters were intertwined but the interaction with one another is that of acquaintances. 2. I liked the way an event impacted each character's life. 3.. Listening to Caroline Lee use her voice to distinguish the different characters. 4. I loved the way all the loose ends were all tied up in the epilogue.
I think The Husband's Secret could be compared to The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton because of how one event changes the course of several lives.
There are so many scenes that come to mind...................
No extreme reaction but I did have some anxiety.
I found myself making predictions that had to be changed over and over.
This book would have been better with half the words removed. I got irritated listening to the unnecessary words used to tell the story. The f word doesn't need to be used at all.
Turned me off of this genre? No. Turned me off of this author? Yes. I will never bother with a Lisa Jackson again.
Most of them.
The laugh-out-loud humor
I do NOT like Robin Miles's southern accent. I am from the South. We do NOT sound like Miles when she performs "southern". I would prefer never to hear Miles's do southern again but I do like Dorothea Benton Frank.
Wes................he just doesn't get it.
Loved the book. Light and funny with just enough mystery to keep the reader guessing.
I have not read the print version.
For me, she gives the characters a 3rd dimension. I have a tendency to skim description and listening to the story being told requires that I also have to listen to descriptions.
I enjoyed the way the storyline switched between the different narrators.
Answering this question would spoil the story for others.
Answering this question will also spoil the story for others.
There were times I found myself smiling while I listened.
Absolutely - the storyline is full of twists and turns
Yes. I would make predictions only to discover that I had to revise and make another prediction. I had to keep reading to find out what had happened.
I have listened to three other Caroline Lee performances. I have like all three and wouldn't rate one performance above the others.
It would have been great to listen to in one sitting but there was too much substance to the story to condense it into a shorter version.
Yes, I would recommend this book to a friend because the story line keeps the reader predicting and correcting the predictions throughout the book. I thoroughly enjoy a book that pulls me in and doesn't let me out until the end.
