Enjoyed the Australian view of WWII and life in the Pacific Islands. Ending seemed very abrupt however - like the author just thought that was enough and ended the story.
Narrator was good. Story was decent. Not terribly interesting but okay for a cozy mystery. If this is the start to a series I am not compelled to try the next one.
Plot is farfetched with all the disparate elements involved. If you can suspend your disbelief it hangs together passably. Narrator's accents are distracting. For some reason she lisps on one of the Spanish names which is not consistent with Mexican prononciations and really bothered me.
I usually avoid books with vampires/witchcraft/magic, etc. Must have missed the fact that there was magic in this one when I bought it. But... I really enjoyed it! Abosutely loved the narrator and hope he does more books. The narrators's voice and accent seemed to fit the book perfectly. Also loved the modern London ambience. I don't think I will go for the rest of the books in the series but I highly recommend this one even if you don't like witches, etc.
I am not an avid Nora Roberts fan but have listened to and read half a dozen of her books and enjoyed them. However, I could not make it to the end of this one. I think it might be one of her older books that has been reissued. The narrator was good but the plot was very predictable. Most romance plots are predictable and I can still enjoy them but this one was boring. The characters were nor very interesting either. There are better Nora Roberts books so don't waste your money or credit on this one.
I have read and listened to several of Joseph Kanon's books and they have all been excellent. This one is different than the usual WWII spy thriller but fascinating none the less. Set in Istanbul just after WWII has ended and full of interesting characters and intrigue. Highly recommended!
I have listened to two others in the Longmire series and really enjoyed them all. It is not the kind of book I would sit down and read through but great for listening. I also like the television series!
Really enjoyed this book. It is light and frothy but not an insult to your intelligence. I like Jennifer Crusie's writing and stories. Will definitely listen to more of hers. Also liked the narrator a lot and highly recommend her as well.
It took me about 90 minutes before I started enjoying this one. The beginning (which covers the Corag's early life) just really dragged for me. I did start enjoying it once she took off on her own. I'm glad I stuck it out and would recommend it to anyone who likes Scottish locales and historical fiction.
I tried several audio French language instruction methods and Pimsleur is far and away the best. I started with level one and I have had college French classes many years ago. My husband has never had any French instruction and started as well. We both love it! Great for a refresher or a true beginner. Am continuing on to level two. Highly recommended!
Interesting twist on a spy novel and I enjoyed it all the way through. Not sure I am up for the sequel but it was a good use of a credit.
