She writes, what I refer to, as an easy read. The story flows, the characters feel real and you can get into the story on the first page. I love her story lines and the way she keeps a reader interested and eager to keep going. I enjoyed Robert Lawrences narrative of the book, he becomes part of the book.
This is another bargain I tried, this is how I try other authors. This is a sitting on the edge of your seat read (audible). I found myself about half the way thru trying to figure out how it would end. There is so much action that it wore me out. I wondered is there no end to what the main character goes thru? I find that as of late I have been picking up many of this type of book, action, action and more action and not always getting anywhere.
I did enjoy the book and the performance. I was going to go on to the next book but found out there was going to be a series and opted for that instead. Don't get me wrong and gave it high marks, but I am 75 and need to balance some of my reading, listening.
I really am not a writer and don't really enjoy writing reviews, so I don't do the review right after reading a book, no matter how much I like it. Also, I can't remember details so but I do rate them by stars. Michael Connelly is a good writer an I have never not liked something he has written. That said. Read his books.
As in a lot of my reading, since finding audible books, I have found that certain style of books I enjoy listening to more than actually reading it. This is a great series. Lots of action good story lines and easy to picture the scenarios without even trying. If you like adventure and action and a good hero, listen to the series.
This was a surprise to me. I read the book and enjoyed it not thinking that it was outstanding so surprise when I found myself thinking about it for several weeks after I read it. I am now almost thru book 2 and still don't know what took my attention but I am hooked on the story. Good characters that come alive without being aware that they took root in my mind. Very good writing, good story line and I recommend it to anyone who enjoys other times and magic.
I wasn't expecting to get into this story as much as I did. I enjoyed the premise of the story and very much enjoyed the narrator. His deliverance was the best I have heard and he help make it a great listen. I knew nothing of the story and thought it was well written, thought provoking and entertaining. I looked forward to his other books in the series.
I purchased this as a bargain and normally enjoy Nora Roberts Trilogies. The story was the same format as the Chesapeake series.
I had a hard time enjoying the book as the readers voice of the characters was soooooooooooo bad that it interfered with my concentration.
I had reserved the other two books but decided to delete them from my wish list. If I do decide to continue the series I will
buy the Kindle version and read it.
Just finished the series and found that I enjoyed this one the best. It's a light read, the story line the same in all the books; boy meets girl etc. etc. The storyline was incidental to the getting together of the couples in the first three books. I enjoy some romance however I want my storyline more. The series
would not be complete without the fourth book.
I prefer to listen to Nora Roberts as to reading her. It's easy to follow while I am driving. There were three narrators and the one in book 3 and book 4 were both very good. If you like Nora
Roberts I would recommend these books.
I wondered about the story in the beginning it was slow, however it really turned out to be a great book. The author wove a truly mesmerizing story. I kept thinking about the ending and how I never went there. Well worth the time.
I thoroughly enjoyed this trilogy I enjoy the Ireland setting, the story line and Fiacre Douglas narration. He did a wonderful job doing both male & female, it was done so smoothly that I could forget a man was doing it all.
The 3rd book was the least interesting and I felt like Nora Roberts was winding down.
I would recommend the books to anyone who likes Nora Roberts.
I've read Nora Roberts on and off for over 30 years. I been listening to books on cds for a few years, going to and from work, and loved the experience of a good book being read to
me. Nora doesn't write bad books so any book she writes is a good read/listen. I am never disappointed in a woman's book being read by a man and this is not exception. Gary was great.
