I've read most all of Sara Patetsky's books and have always liked them. This was the first one I've tried as an audiobook and probably my last. I didn't care at all for the reader. The males voices were just louder than the female voices and so always seemed like they were shouting.
Terrible quality and not a good reader. Could not even get through the first chapter.
I love mysteries and Elizabeth George has been one of my favorite authors for over 20 years. But this is the first audiobook of hers I have tried. Even though it is one of the few stories I partially figured out, I still really enjoyed it. Lots of twists and turns plus good narration made it a great listen.
I have seen this movie many times and enjoyed the story. But the book has so much more to offer - about the Civil War, about Atlanta, and of course, about Scarlett and her relationships. I can now see why this story is a classic. Great narration adds to the story.
Very satisfying book. Set of seemingly unrelated stories that weave together cleverly. These stories are so good that the BBC made a set of 3 episodes to air on PBS. The subsequent books with the protagonist Jackson Brody are very good too. I have listened to them all.
Loved the story and the readers (2 - same character at different ages). I think most anyone would enjoy this story.
If you've never listened to Dick Hill read one of these stories, you don't know what you are missing. Lee Child called this book his "prequel sequel". So it is for established fans as well as soon to be fans sincce it starts at the beginning. Essential for any Lee Child/Jack Reacher fan and a great listen for anyone else.
I tried this audiobook after Parade Magazine rated it as one of their top audiobooks of the year. Two years later, it is still one of my favorite audiobooks and made me a fan of her stories for life.
Since the author Pat Conroy gave a glowing endorsement of the audiobook, I took a chance. And I agree, it was a great reading of a great story. I really enjoyed it.
I have listened to all of her other books (which I really liked) and this one was a disappointment. Story not as good and didn't really care for the narration. And hated the awful music tracks added to the beginning and ending of every chapter.
