This story gives you a perspective of a Iraq war veteran and his family and also the healing power of horses. Something for everyone, I was sad when the story ended!
This book takes place in the same world as the Study series, I suggest you listen to those books first and then READ this book series because the narrator will ruin it for you.
Jennifer Van Dyck is the absolute wrong narrator for this book, she makes the main character (who is 20) sound like a 40+ year old. The mispronunciations compared to The Study series are atrocious and distract from the story. I'm sure she is a fine narrator but she was the wrong choice for this book/series.
Absolutely not! Read this book don't listen!
Surprising, Compelling & Well Done
I liked that the story had a strong dynamic female as the main character and a lot of other interesting characters as well. The story itself is very well written and though not my typical genre I will be listening to all of the books in the trilogy as well as other books by this author.
The author had a very nice tone to her voice and the descriptions in the book were very thorough. I thought the characters were intriguing although the plot as a mystery was not very surprising and I had it figured out towards the beginning of the book.
Yes, the book had a interesting plot and a complicated romance. I really liked the descriptions of all of the technical aspects and I felt like I had a better understanding of the early computer industry after listening to this book.
Anna Fields was amazing as usual, I recommend all of the books Anna Fields has narrated.
Towards the end there was a lot of drama and it kept me riveted. I love when a book can accomplish that.
This is not SEP's usual book but it is one of her earlier ones and in my opinion one of her better ones. It doesn't follow the same format as some of her newer books and although I like those books too, this one has more substance.
As an avid horse lover I was excited to see a new horse book added to audible's small collection. Unfortunately the reader sounded like a documentary narrator and the story went off track and mentioned too much history that did not pertain directly to the story. The story also repeated information in the same words multiple times.
I think that the author needed to focus more on the actual story and less on the history, the narrator did a pretty good job but the history chapters just seemed like a complete diversion from the actual story. Ultimately, I feel like I would use my credit for a different book. Listen if you want but it did not keep me riveted at all.
