This was one of the poorest books ever listened to from Audible. If you are not selective with your reading material, then this would be a filler. I cannot believe the high marks this book supposedly earned.
Quality of writing was terrific, but it would be difficult to grade it among the volume of audiobooks listened to. This is usually not my genre, but so glad I took the chance.
YES. Marisha Pessi is one of the most talented writers enjoyed in a long time, so I will follow her future writing. However, this story was in dire need of a good editor. Easily, this book could have been multiplied into three books.
Too many to name, but it was the intensity and the insight into the human thought process that stopped me in my tracks. Ms. Pessi has the ability to express in words so accurately what we are thinking as we travel alongside the characters.
I would never try to rename an author's work.
This author has such talent that it didn't bother me her book was a bit overwritten. Her prose alone is worth the read. Jake Webber was simply superb in his narration.
Not really....this is canned romantic nonsense and not really something I wish to spend time
Not much to be said here....dribble, dribble, dribble.
Lukewarm and with little substantive merit...a ya ya story
I will listen to it again because of all the helpful information offered.
I don't usually read this type of book, but due to high cholesterol problem, I decided to delve into this one. It was written with down-to-earth explanations which my doctor had neither the time or desire to go over with me. It also gave me other alternatives to statin drugs, which I immediately put to use and seem to be working like a charm.
I enjoyed Wilson's performance very much as he has a clear and smooth voice. He was an excellent choice for this material.
I did....so interesting and easy to understand. I could not put it down.
Very grateful that this book was in the Audible Library.
Have not read the print version and I am not a serial reader...well, I wasn't before this outstanding whodunit. I won't miss the remainder of the series, however.
Liam, an upstanding ROGUE with steel nerve and a cotton heart.
Excellent narration by Jeff Woodman, who is a new narrator for me. I will check him out for more books as he captured my admiration for this one.
I read it in one setting. I could not pull myself away.
Entertaining, realistic and well-written. I will now download the remainder of the series, which I hope continues for some time.
Realistic, compassionate, well-written
The protagonist, Louisa
Excellent narration by all readers
I kept passing this book by as I thought it a chic-lit type book....it is anything but, and I think one of the best books of the year. Don't miss it if you like heart-wrenchers.
A well-rounded plot that wasn't reaching for unconnected story lines. I passed the point of believeability in the first chapter.
Her voice simply did not match the subject matter
Heloise visiting Val in prison.
I've read and enjoyed other Laura Lipmann books, but for whatever reason, this one
gave me a yawn.
The two love stories and how they intertwined at the end.
The deep love these couples felt for each other.
I could not choose....they were both excellent
Nicolas Sparks did it again....made all of us hunger for this brand of lifetime love and respect.
The sensitive way the author handled the subjects of adoption and fatal disease..
Uncle Willie, with the wide-open mind and heart.
Peterson narrates a bit too fast at the beginning, but once he slows down, his narration of all characters, was excellent.
Martin's books takes me away from the disappointments of life....even though a bit unrealistic sometimes, they still spring hope eternal in human nature....and where would we be without that.
The brilliant duo of writer and narrator.
Terrific character development...seemed as I knew all the characters personallyand became so engrossed that I simply read the entire book in one day.
That would be a difficult choice as they all were realistic and noteworthy to the whole story. Caroline Lee is a superb reader and helps bring all characters alive.
Will definitely checkout this author's other books.
NO, It was rather drawn out and could have been told in half the time.
Didn't think there was sufficient character development to love or hate the characters.
Hannah...the other characters were frustratingly inept in their development.
The historical facts surrounding this novel were extremely interesting as well as the description of life as it was in the late 1800's.
