I usually like Amish stories, but this was no Witness (The Movie) I knew it wasn't a thriller or an award winner, but I thought it might be a good story. It wasn't. It was so predictable and boring. At least it was on sale.
I love Robyn Carr and I am used to her books from Virgin River, Thunder Point etc that keep your interest and none of them seem drawn out. I was hoping I would like this one, but did not. The story kept moving slow as it took forever to find bits and pieces about Sam. Did not hold my interest and had to fast forward several times. I got to the last 2 hours and listened and it got better but it shouldn't have taken so long.
The WORST part was Christina Traister's male voices. It was chalk on a blackboard. She is a good narrator but don't make the male voice sound like a 90 year old man on his deathbed. Awful. Maybe get this on sale or a free credit. Some might like it if you they are bored.
I don't usually get into WWII Books. But this one was so well written and the Narration by Chistopher Lane was wonderful. It was one of those books where you just couldn't wait to get back to it. From Beginning to end this listen was fantastic.
This book had a lot of potential. First the Narrator ruined it since her southern accent was long and drawn out and over acted. I got past that and started to like the story, but some of the storylines just leave you empty. Didn't finish out on some of them. I could have given this one more stars. Butt,, the ending really was horrible. The who dunnit, left you "shaking your head" and it just didn't fit at all.
Not worth the credit or on sale.
This was a hard one to get into. I almost returned it as this story and how it jumped around so much from stories almost lost me. It grabbed me when the Grandmother started telling her story and then I was hooked. Fantastic narration and just grabbed you with her heart breaking saga of being in a concentration camp as a young girl and how she survived. The ending just kept getting better as it all came together. I'm still not thrilled with how this author threw in a few chapters of who is this and how does this connect with the story, but at the end you find out. It's a great 4 star book with a 5 star narration from this group. WOW!!
The story was very unusual and gripping. The narration by both people was amazing. Zachary Webber was really great and I'll look up others that he narrated now. It sucked you in and I just loved reading about how Sidney and Ridge's relationship became so personal and deep. BUT,, as I got towards the end of the story, there was an hour that was dragging and got way too deep into the heatbeats, breathing, sighs, etc. It had me until that part. I loved how Coleen Hoover wrote the majority of this story, but this part almost ruined it. The ending was much better and it moved on. It's worth a listen and a credit.
I liked the storyline, but a lot of it was a bit too over the top and at times I caught myself shaking my head thinking,, No way. Not believable. The Narrator exaggerated the characters way too much. She over acted I guess is a good way to put it. It would be much better to read this yourself.
This story had me in tears and laughing all in one. I was so happy to finally see Preacher fall in love. The romance between them was so sweet and touching. I loved the way he protected her along with the rest of the town. You will be hooked with this one too.
I will listen to the entire Virgin River Series. Can't wait for the next one.
I have not listened to any of Nicholas Sparks books before. I will purchase another one if they are anything like this one. I was sucked into the story with every fiber. The relationship between Sophia and Luke, from beginning to end, was so sweet and I loved Luke's personality. January LaVoy made him so sexy with her narration and did such a great job with Sophia also.
The other part of this story narrated by Ron McLarty was so sweet and well done.
The two lives of these people and how they came together was one of those "on the edge of your seat and can't stop listening." I thought I knew but then it just got better and more surprising at the end. The ending was Fantastic!! So well done. LOVED THIS ONE!!
I liked the first book of this Series. The story was very good and this author knows how to write a Sex scene. I love to listen to anything Kate Rudd narrates. Benjamin Darcie is ok but he needs to stay away from doing accents.
I wasn't crazy about this second episode. It just didn't seem to be very exciting or draw you in. I don't think I'll purchase the 3rd one in this series.
This series of books are so easy to listen too and really just takes you away, which I think that's Robyn Carr's purpose. This story of Mel and Jack is so sweet. As Therese Plummer narrates this, which she is one of the best at all the voices and characters, you feel the heartache, emotions and the love in this story. I love this series and look forward to listening to all 17 books.
