This is the second book I have listened to narrated by Julia Whelan and again she didn't disappoint, neither did Kirby Heyborne. Both did a fantastic job with their respective characters. The story itself was extremely unbelievable and twisted, but that's what made it such a good read. I love all the twists and turns, it kept you guessing every step of the way, especially at the very end.
I read the reviews about this book and they seemed so good, but I have to say I was quite disappointed. It took me a little while to get used to Ray's narration, as I found he spoke too quickly, but I got used to it by the end. However, by the time I actually got to the end the story was so unreal and uninspiring I was counting down minutes for it to finish. The beginning was interesting, and so was the journey the characters took on their mission of discovery, but once they opened number 14, it all kind of went downhill in my mind. It was not all bad though, despite my initial dislike of the narration, I did find that Ray did a great job with the characters - each had such a distinct personality, and he managed to pull if off very well.
This was my first Nora Roberts book, and I thought it was a fantastic read. I bought it based on previous reviews, and they were not wrong. I found myself intrigued by the story and what would happen next. The characters were all great and Julia did an amazing job narrating with a clear distinction between the characters - even the male voices. It's only a shame it had to come to an end at some point. Highly recommend it.
This was my first audio book, and I wasn't entirely sure what to expect, and to be honest had quite low expectations as I love holding a book and sitting on the sofa. I was absolutely speechless after the first chapter. The story is just wonderful, with the past and present woven together so beautifully. The characters are all so interesting and different, and I love how they all have their time in the book, so you really get to know them and all their flaws. The narration by Edoardo was spot on, he really brought all the characters to life, and made the whole experience unforgettable. I read most of it on my long drives to work, and for the first time, I actually didn't want to get out of the car as I wanted to keep on listening. Well done Jess on an amazing book, and Edoardo for narrating.
