I loved this book about a polygamist sect in a desert US state. The author did a great job of getting into the characters and show a strong sense of love of family, teen anxt and righteous indignation. It is one of the most disturbing YA books I have read recently. The reader was perfect--strong emotion in all the right places. At the end of the last disk, the author gives a great interview. Highly recommended.
The plot and reader were great. I thought it dragged in spots and could have used tighter editing. Still worth a sale credit.
Interesting narrated story--well documented. I learned a lot about what was really happening on the prairie, as well as to some key historical people.
This series is fun ride of twists and turns. The reader starts as inexperienced and gains skill and credibility over the series. This new author does a good job making you believe the ups and downs of being a psychic. The writing is mostly good but gets hung up on a few things like, "swearing is ok if...." This is a quote I hope to never hear again! The main character Abby is immature in ways such as her constant lying and deceiving her husband, the sweetheart Dutch. All in all, the books are a great ride through various cities, dangerous people and loving friendships.
Fun series, great twisting story.
The narrator has gotten way better, but still doesn't do male voices well. She came up with a new voice for agent Harrison, after him being in 2 previous books, that doesn't fit his personality.
More inconsistencies: M.J. Who used to be Abby's best friend and partner, now seem like near strangers who haven't kept in contact. When Abby talks of her parents, they sound more abusive with each book.
Kat, Abby's sister, seems completely crazy and obsessed, with no reference to the great love and dependence they have on each other, or how they call each other daily, or how Abby has and does stand up to her, or how she mainly lives in Boston with her husband and young twins.
Despite it all, it was a fun romp.
This book was just the book I needed to teach me about the harmful effects of eating so much sugar. It has helped me look at what I am eating and evaluate the efficacy of my choices. Because of it, I have made many life-time changes to benefit my health. If I could I would have rated it 3.5. There was some rambling and could have been a few hours shorter. The reader did a fine job. It was worth the read.
I have listened to this book over the last few days as I was planning and executing my 60th birthday party. My daughter said at this age I don't need inspirational books. So wrong! We all do at all ages. It reminded me that I am unique and precious, that I can reach life-long goals I've procrastinated and that I AM a badass! Read it!
If you are familiar with Carr's work, this fits in. It is a sweet love story with likable characters. It is the only book of Carr's that was a love story, only, with no plot. It is still worth the purchase just to see the town and characters progress.
I loved this book! I listened to it every possible second over the Christmas holiday, and as soon as I finished, I started again. Within the first 30 minutes of the exposition, the story unfolds a murder. The rest of the story has you chasing the trail to the murderer. Great, plus a good plot kick in the last 30 minutes. Sometimes Nora gets a little graphic in her love scenes, this time it was just teasing references. She does talk a lot about drinking--a celebration, new friend, tiring day, party... Either way, one of the best!
Loved this book with the different handicapped characters on the farm and their love and devotion to people who care for them. Laugh-out-loud-funny and sweet!
Painfully real and detailed look at living with a disturbed kidnapper.. A surprise and shocking ending. Great book that lingers in the mind days after the last page is turned.
