I like listening to audiobooks as opposed to reading them for myself because the narrators have the ability to bring so much more to the story.
I've only listened to the other's he's done in this series. I have to say he made the females awfully whiny at times. When I'd have imagined them saying things a little different, he made them sound weak. It also annoyed me when he made tsking sounds. I don't know if they were in the book or not but it drove me nuts. Other than that I liked it.
I actually teared up whenever Tinnon (I'm not sure if that's how his name is spelled or not to be honest with you) died and they had his funeral.
I honestly didn't think it'd like this series but I was wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Nora Roberts goes into some detail, some of which is graphic or disgusting, and some of it I would have preferred not to hear but I understand it makes for a better story. I must say, however, that my least favorite way to end a book (along with the death of a main character) is by having the characters old. While the gesture and thought is sweet, it depresses the hell out of me. I'd prefer to imagine them as they were when they fought the battle, not as elderly.
I would recommend this book in a heartbeat. It was beautifully written. Although the end was expected, there were many twists and turns that I absolutely loved.
Malachi and Tia were my favorite. I've always had a thing for Irish men and since Gideon smoked, Malachi was my choice. I liked Tia because we saw the most transformation out of her. And together, they made a brilliant pair.
Nora Roberts has the ability to make me believe what I'm reading is fact instead of fiction. She took the real life myths of the Three Fates and the real life tragedy of the Lusitania and made a beautiful story out of them. I could almost believe this really happened.
It's possible. I liked the story as a whole. I find that I tend to like Nora Roberts older material as opposed to the newer stuff because the newer stuff can be way to graphic for me but this wasn't bad.
Overall, it was a decent book. Although, may I point out, her dad was a drunk and in the book it was made to look like alcoholics are just jolly. Not the best message to send out. At least Nora was smart and didn't put him behind a wheel or anything. Still, when she mentioned how she never saw her father without a flask but it was ok because he wasn't a mean drunk, that's not a healthy message in my opinion.
Absolutely. Of course they have to read the first books but this one was awesome.
When Kate knocks on Nicks hotel door and he answers in a towel. Then he drops the towel and she stares. Priceless.
My only problem with these books is that they are NEVER long enough. I never want the stories to end. I can't wait for the next one to come out.
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.
