After reading the rave reviews I decided to listen to this book. I'm at a loss for the rave reviews. While listening, most times, I felt
like I had walked in the middle of the characters conversation.
The characters seemed to talk in code to each other and I was not privy to what that code was. I wanted to like this story,but sadly I did not.
I'm an avid reader and listener, but I have never read a John Grisham book.
This book is now at the top of my list of great stories. The narration was excellent and as you know, the narration can make a good book not listenable. 5 stars all the way around.
I guess, I'll go back and read some of his earlier books!!
Unlikeable characters that you find yourself rooting for. I felt the same way about "Girl Gone." I don't know how Gillian Flynn does it, but I absolutely LOVED both novels.
Unlikeable characters and all!
I too clicked on the icon of the book by mistake. When I read Cindy's review I was intrigued.
She said it was the best mistake she ever made. I ordinarily would not have picked this book. In fact, I passed it over many times in viewing my audible selections.
This book is wonderful!! I usually go for thrillers, but I have to say that after this book, I will expand my horizons. The ending was beautiful. The narration was excellent!!! 5 stars to you Jess Walter!!
Started out slow. I didn't like either character. Then the story started building...moving, it was almost like a roller coaster ride. It was great until the end. When my Ipod clock registered 30 minutes until the end, I couldn't believe it. This can't be the end. Five minutes left, I can't believe it's ending like this. Slow beginning. LOVED the middle. Hated the end. Excellently written. I will read more Gillian Flynn. She's Good!!!
I've been reading a few books on this subject lately. I've really didn't get it. I was on the edge of getting it, but not really there. I downloaded this audiobook, and everything became crystal clear. I know now how to guide my feelings to what I want, and I always know where I am by how I feel. Thank you Esther, Jerry and Abraham. I am grateful and thankful for this book.
I admit I was skeptical at first, but you can't knock the information, wherever it's coming from.
This was such a great book!! The narration was excellent which is so important with any audiobook. It had such a great plot line, showing how one night can change your whole life.
All the characters had personality, even the dog!! At the end when the narrator says "I hope you have enjoyed our presentation of The Witness", I said out loud, "I did, I did.
Go Nora Roberts!! You rock!
So far, my 4th Jan Burke/Irene Kelly book. All of the books have great storylines with wonderful characters. The narrator Eliza Foss is excellent!!
I just finished Bloodlines. What a great, well written story!!. The narration was also excellent! I'm going to use my credits this month to download more books by this author. Loved It!!
Dr. Hawkins has done himself and his book a disservice by also narrating. His droning voice would not let me continue listening to the material. This book was recommended in books and tapes by Dr. Wayne Dyer. I read the reviews that complained of the narration, but I thought with the interesting material, I could get through it. Sadly, I could not make it through. I wish I could contact the author or his people and suggest that the book be professionally read. He would reach a greater audience as I'm sure the material is very worthwhile.
This is what a mystery suspense thriller is supposed to be! A great story that keeps you guessing until the very end. I wish I could write like that.
