Was surprised by the depth here. We are told of the siege of Lenengrad in heartbreaking detail, much of which I'm ashamed to say I was ignorant of. Sad, story but is uplifting too as each character works out their life and family dynamics. Only a talented author like Kristin Hannah can pull this off. Loved this book and do enjoy this author. Great narration, the accents done are super. This book caused me to read up on the siege of Lenengrad, a sign of a good book indeed.
Super book. Funny, engaging, entertaining, well written and very well narrated. Some have commented on poorly done American accents, the American accents are only at the beginning and very end of the book, too minuet to bother! Best book I've chosen in a long time! Great author and narrator.
I have not read a book such as this before. The author shows us each character in such depth. Fabulously written, good narration. A strong novel I would recommend.
What a different book. Often I was wondering what was really going on in this book, made me think and try to figure out what had happened . Hard to put this book down, really enjoyed it. If you like creepy/mystery/thriller type books this one is worth a listen. Great easy to listen to narration. I would definitely read another book by Michel Faber, great imagination and well written.
Jane Velez-Mitchell may not be my pick as a TV journalist, but she writes an amazing nonfiction book. The author represents both parties fairly, new details I had not heard following the trial were very compelling. If you were intrigued by the Jodi Arias trial, you will enjoy this read. Still sends shivers down my spine...
Wonderful read with intriguing mysteries. I made myself wait to listen so this book would last longer or I would have listened to it start to finish. I would not change a thing about this book, it leaves you thinking, wondering about the characters, and the narration is fabulous, great character voices and accents.
I should have liked this book, I love true crime. There just wasn't enough detail to surround myself in each case, the conclusion was there before I had gotten interested. You have to listen very carefully every second or you will miss something important, if you can do this you may find this book to your liking.
Wow! Great read. The characters were so well rounded, interesting and well put together. This story is not a common one, high morals set within a brothel. This author has the ability to take ordinary words and weave them into something beautiful. The narrator was so amazing. Not only changing her voice for different characters, but becoming the character. Super listen.
Very mediocre book. Like choosing the wrong chocolate from the box, you wish you would have chosen a different one. Predictable, boring, just a nothing listen. I'm sure others would not mind this narrator, but I found her annunciations to be hard to listen to.
This is the best book I've read in a long, long time. What a fascinating story with wonderful imagery. The story swept me away into the characters lives, keeping me guessing. The narrator was perfect. My only dislike is that I am finished it!
The stories in this book are from the 1970's, the author wrote them but did not publish them until recently. Very slow & loaded with unimportant details. The narrator voices the individual characters very well. Unfortunately, I've listened to two other books in this series, her voice has become repetitive. Overall I would not recommend this Ann Rule Book, not nearly as good as her other novels.
