Different kind of book, from the dog's perspective. Very interesting and sentimental, and makes you see things from a different perspective. Would recommend it, especially to dog-lovers!
Many were saying this is as good as Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum. Well, it IS the same reader, and it does have a quirky woman as the main character, but Stephanie is MUCH funnier and has better adventures. I enjoyed this book alright, but sometimes it was hard to follow with the different dead characters, and there is NO Lula, of course. Definitely not as fun as the Plum series, and I think this will be my only book. Falls short.
This book was absolutely wonderful! It IS long, but you can't wait to see where next event will take you and what new secret will be revealed. I loved going through each woman's life events from the past as the story unfolded. Was sorry when it was done, and am looking forward to listening to Kate Morton's other book.
I have listened to every one of Grisham's books and couldn't put them down, so I was very excited he had finally written another after an extended break. Well, if ever a book needed to be abridged, it was THIS one! It just goes on and on with boring political details, and I had to force myself just to keep on listening. Kept hoping it would have some kind of intriguing story, like all his others, but no such luck! My advice, if you must listen, wait for the abridgement!
I read a few of the so-so reviews and was very surprised. This book is full of one twist after another that keeps you wanting to listen every opportunity you can! I thought it was a great listen, very entertaining. Something to listen to for FUN! Highly recommend it.
I chose this book off the Audible's Best of 2006 list, and I wasn't disappointed. It has everything. Full of memorable charaters on all levels, romance, adverture, sad and happy. I especially liked the readers, one portraying the 90-yr-old (93?) and one portraying the younger Jacob. The story is different and excellent and kept my attention the whole time. This is definitely one of my new favorites, and I tell everyone I know!
