Everyone with children should read this book! This could happen to any of us. It is written very well and the narrator does an excellent job.
No. I'm sure a lot of people enjoyed this book as shown in the reviews. I found the mother very angry and not someone I enjoyed reading about. Once she disappeared, I liked the book a whole lot better!!! I did enjoy the young girl (her daughter), sorry I've read several books since and can't remember the daughter's name...
The most interesting was the way the daughter stood up for her mom.
The the least interesting was the mom's character.
Yes, this was such a great story and the narration was absolutely wonderful! Storytelling at its best!
I loved so many of her conversations with Oletta. One of the best quotes would be "It is what we believe about ourselves that determines how others see us."
I have listened to several other books narrated by Ms Lamia. She is hands down the best!!!
Couldn't follow the story - so maybe a better story? The story kept skipping around and it was very difficult to be interested in what was going to happen next.
hard to follow the accent
A better story line
It seemed so amateurish.
yes, she wasn't the problem, the story/plot was
All of them
I agree with everything said about the narrator. She is a good reader; she does not sound like a 20 something girl from NJ!!! Please pair up the narrators with the characters. She definitely needs to read for a 50+ character and would do a great job as long as the subject isn't too comedic... She has great pronunciation and diction, etc. I have nothing against CJ Critt, she is just soooooo wrong for Ms. Plumb!!!!!! That said it is a good book.
I really didn't know what to expect when I purchased this book during a sale, but thought I would give it a try. I was very pleasantly surprised! It was entertaining and funny! A good listen!
I normally love Robert B. Parker; however this was not his best book. I don't regret getting the book though; esp. since it was on sale. Just don't expect it to be like his Spenser books.
If this was the only Nora Roberts book I had ever listened to I wouldn't listen to any others... I didn't think the narrator was as bad as some of the other reviews - she wasn't the best, but certainly not the worst I've heard. That said, the caracters in the book were vapid and the plot was non-existent! Not worth it even on sale!
How many hours do you need to listen to the boy in this book get tortured at school? I really am not even sure that I can finish this book. I'm 6 hours into it and after listening to 6 hours of a kid get tormented at school, I think I've got the point!!!
