Elizabeth Haynes did it again. It was a good listen that kept me insterested the whole book. The narrator Justine Eyre was delightful. Great voice.
This book was boring and uneventful. I don't know what all these 5 star reviewers are talking about. Must be a different book. I thought the storyline was simple, the plot did not progress to much, and the ending was a letdown. I had to replay it to make sure it was the end, it was so ubrupt.
This story was slow and boring. I like Laura but sometimes she can be long-winded. There's not a lot of dialogue as much as there is summarization of thoughts throughout the whole book. Characters say one sentence, then the rest of the chapter is random thoughts about that sentence.
I also like Linda Emonds voice, it's pleasant. But there are no voice changes between characters. Overall this was a boring story.
I love Nora Roberts, but this one was a bore. I didn't like the storyline with the egg and Russia. It just wasn't interesting. I love Julie Whelan, her character voices are great. I was looking forward to the book because of her and was hoping it was as good as The Witness, which I think is the last well-written book by Nora. The Collector was not one of my favorites, but I will always come back to Nora Roberts.
This was the slowest Laura Lippman book I've listened to yet. It was torture getting to the end. There was so much non-essential talking and took forever to get to one point. I like Lippman and will still listen to her, but this one is not on my list of favorites.
I was looking forward to the second book in this series. The first one was OUTSTANDING. This second book missed the mark by a longshot. There was so action, only a lot of internal thoughts from the main character. And I agree with another reviewer, it was never explained why a woman who was kidnapped, raped and imprisoned was hated by the entire clan. That made no sense at all.
The narraration was outstanding as usual. Kirsten Potter does an excellent job with voice inflection, emotion and different voices. I can always listen to her. I'll listen to another Maya Banks, but I was not sold on this story at all. I hope #3 is better.
I was really excited to listen to a suspensful storyline, but was very dissapointed. There was nothing suspenseful about this book whatsever. This is a very slow book with too much filler in between the actual storyline. I got so bored listening to superfluous information that had nothing to do with the story, I fell asleep a few times or drifted in thought. The storyline itself is good if the author kept to that and build upon it in a timely manner. If not for the filler and having no actual suspense, it would have been an enjoyable book. I do think the author is a good writer but this left something to be desired. This was my first listen by this auther and I'm hesitant to listen to another. Maybe I'll try her series.
