I like listening to audio books over reading them myself because the narrators are able to bring so much more life into the story than I can.
My only problem with this book was the way Seth let his mother have such control over him. Anyone in their right mind wouldn't allow that to happen but he allowed it to go on for years. This was done in another of Nora Roberts books and it just made me annoyed with the story. The presence of Seth's mother in the story took away from the overall story. It would have been better had his conflict been about something else.
Nora Roberts, yes. Luke Daniels, no. I couldn't tell who was speaking most of the time. His female voices, like many male narrators do, was whiney and off. I almost felt like he was making fun of females throughout the whole book.
It someone like Loreli King had done it.
The story wasn't bad but it's not one to listen to again.
The most memorable moment in the book was actually near the beginning when Cali and Jake were in the exhibition room. The way it was written was very erotic.
I would certainly listen to it again. The story was amazing.
I loved the way that it was written. It was sweet and romantic and ended just the way I wanted it to.
If I could have listened to this story in one sitting I would have. I didn't want to put it down.
While I listened to this book, I thought of how amazing it would be to turn this book into a movie. I'd watch it on opening day and buy it when it first hits the shelves. I loved the story that much. I think turning it into a movie would draw more people into the story that might have other wise missed out.
I like audio books as a whole enjoyable over reading them because it allows me to plow through more books. Being able to listen to them means I can listen in the car, do house work, or just about anything else without having to stop and neglect anything.
I liked the beginning of the book. I was so drawn in since the first page. It was exciting, I didn't know what was going on, and I couldn't wait to find out more. Then it started from the beginning which made me want to listen even more just to find out why the first scene of the book played like that.
tolerable at best
This story itself was alright. The narration wasn't the best. Sometimes the emotions portrayed by Julie Finneran just didn't match up to the emotions I would have picked or thought she have been picked. If Deanna was angry, she almost sounded whinny. I think this book would have done better with a different narrator.
This is an interesting story about a bipolar ghost and a band of people working together to make sure she rests in peace.
Ros was a great character. She is confident and doesn't tolerate nonsense. I liked how the relationship blossemed between her and Mitch. I appreciated how Mitch could so easily admit his downfalls and mistakes in the past. It shows us as readers that not everyone in these stories are perfect. I really liked this book and look forward to the finishing the series.
This is all I have to say. Sometimes Nora Roberts writes disturbing things. She can have her main character sexually assulted, watch her ex-husband and father of her child explode between her very eyes, be a hostage at a young age, watch a young boy get shot and killed, and so on and still try to pass this off as a romance novel. This story took me a very long time to finish because my interest just wasn't there. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great. I'm tired of having to listen to psychopaths explain why they hate certain people and what they plan on doing to those people. It's quite disturbing at times and I have a hard time finding the romance in it all.
It's not the best but it's not the worst.
I hated him. He made the female character sound whiny and pathetic. His female voices are really lacking.
Obviously it was Nick. He was the most mysterious and most interesting.
I liked how each additional character was introduced into the book. They all worked well providing the skills they had. It showed excellent team work.
When Willie was shot in the head. I was really surprised because I didn't know what was going on. They never told you about the con so when it happened and they played it off it was quite genious.
Blah, Blah, Blah. Scott Brick did great for Nick and Kates dad but that was it. I HATED the way he portrayed Kate O'Hare. Loreli King would have never made a female character sound so damn whiny. She sounded weak and hard headed.
It might be just me but I'm getting kind of tired of Janet Evanovich writing main female characters that are toothpick thin that eat nothing but junk food. This chick was always stuffing her face with the unhealthiest foods she could find and yet she was still described as having a toned and disciplined body. That just annoys the hell out of me. And why a man would find a women pigging out on food all the time attractive is beyond me.
I never listen to audio books again but if I ever run out of things to listen to, I'll give this one another listen to.
The ending was the most memorable. I didn't see it coming at all. Without saying too much, I'll say that I thought the way the book ended was great.
She was able to switch from different voices and accents with ease. It made listening enjoyable.
Yes. It kept you on your toes.
