This was a thoroughly enjoyable read. The characters are human and you find yourself gunning for them. No unexpected twists or turns but still a really good read. Well worth the credit.
I have read all David Baldaccis books and this is up there as a favourite.
James Patterson should be embarrassed to put his name to this book. I am an avid reader of his novels so consider myself a fair critic of his work. this would have to be the worst book I have ever had the misfortune to listen to. The family are too perfect and without giving anything away the storyline is so unbelievable I couldnt believe we were expected to stomach the things an experienced LAPD detective let his family do whilst in witness protection.
I bought the book to read- couldnt get into it so stupidly bought the audiobook- worse mistake. Luckily it was heavily reduced - I now know why. Save your money and ask someone else what happens. Having said that I probably will give the next book a go to see if he is still insulting our intelligence. Listen at your own peril.
I found the story hard to keep up with. Not sure if this was because it was abridged but it seemed to jump between present and past with no warning. Maybe I was'nt paying attention and was missing bits as my mind did tend to wander because it was quite a dull listen
Not sure. I think her style of writing isnt for me.
Her voice seemed to drone
Maybe try an unabridged version - its a risk as it may be even more boring to listen to and longer !!
I read the other reviews and thought this sounds a bit lame. I wouldn't call myself a dog lover but I was intrigued how this would play out. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Unlike Clayton who obviously went in with great expectations I had none.As long as you aren't after any
in-depth analysis of the two main characters psyche you should enjoy the book. I had never read any of Robert Crais previous books so had no idea how he wrote but it kept me entertained and the bond forming between the two was touching. I would definitely recommend this but don't expect anything too deep.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I haven't listened to a John Grisham for a while so had forgotten what a good storyteller he is. It had enough twists and turns to keep it really interesting . Definitely recommend.
It had a good storyline. Not a lot about the virus. I did get the book thinking it would have more about that but never the less I found the story good enough to keep listening. >I enjoyed it a lot. reccomend to anyone who is after a book with a storyline you can keep up with. Not too complicated but not too light. If that makes sense !
I found the story very hard to follow. I think it made the Amish out as very mistrusting which other books I have read havent portrayed them this way.I am still not sure I came to the same conclusion as the author.
I had trouble keeping up with who was who.It also moved a bit too slowly.
possibly down the track when I forget how slow it was but wont be spending a credit on it just yet.
Maybe it wasnt for me. I have listened to other Amish stories and found them really interesting but this was a bit stiff
an engrossing story
an enchanting story of enduring love.
well worth downloading. A beautifully written story and beatifully narrated.
I dont mind the author. The narration was terrible!!. She was supposed to be portraying a young woman and she came off sounding like Betty White - was not suitable for this story . She is probably a great narrator but not for this style of story- completely wrecked it for me. . Seriously thought about stopping as it was almost unbearable
No unfortunately. Not on audiobook anyway
She was quavery, too slow in the wrong places. It sounded like she was reading this story for the first time. She had no feel for where a sentence was ending or whether people were angry, sad etc. I'm sorry to be bagging her as I dont know her but she was so wrong for this book - I was really disappointed. First time it has happened so maybe I am going overboard.
The story had potential. The fact I enjoyed that is the only reason I persevered
Listen to sample before buying- it could be painful if you dont.
Rght up there . Very long but really good.
The twist near the end,I didnt see coming though in hindsight it was staring at me.
Little bit hard to keep up with the numerous characters and which era you are in but worth persevering.
