A great escape writer. I enjoyed the story and the performance. 5 Star because it was a story that kept my interest and had a good ending. Sometimes that's all I want and this book delivered just that.
The story was a bit gritty for me at times. I kept wondering how 1973 felt about it. Overall, however, loved the story and either loved or hated the characters, as appropriate.
Laughed so hard at times my family looked askance at me :) Told them, 'You had to be there' Potential listeners, 'you have to be there!'
Stayed up late to listen to the end. Spent the hours learning to love this family. I cried with them, laughed with then. The author came as close as I've ever come to understand the strenth of family and the strengh of character it takes to overcome fractures and become whole.
I will look for other writings by Ms McFaddon and I would be willing to listen to Robin Miles anytime!
Hate the performance. Felt I was 12 years old listening to it. Normally enjoy Nora Roberts but this story and especially the performance were not up to par.
I have in the past, read J. D. Robb and thus had a clear mental picture of how the characters would speak and the emotions they shared or chose not to share. I regret to say my mental picture in no way matched the narration. Sorry Ms. King, I did not enjoy your performance. I will need to continue reading J. D. Robb on my own.
There are two parts of the story that I laughed until I cried. Mostly charming sometimes hysterically funny, and a decent story to go with it all. I still have a problem matching Craig Johnson's voice to my vision of The Sherriff, but getting there. His interpretation of everyone else is spot on as far as I am concerned.
I love John Carr the character, but he dissappointed me a bit in this story. Maybe he is getting a bit long in the tooth to be as much fun to read/listen to. The story was interesting but a bit too convoluted for me. I didn't particularly like the characters except or course for the basic Oliver Stone gang.
Enjoyed the story. Norah Roberts always entertains. The narrator, Bernadelle Quigley was wonderful. I could listen to her all day. In fact I'm going to listen again just to hear the Irish. A lovely cast of characters.
