"Exciting new series, filled with fast-paced action, crazy characters, steamy sex, suspense, and nonstop hilarity."
"Jamie Swift has one priority in quiet Beaumont, South Carolina: running the local newspaper."
Jamie Swift couldn't write a newpaper article to save her life, which is exactly what she does not do. If Jamie Swift is the hard-core newspaper journalist that the reviews make her out to be, she would have already investigated what was going on in her town, and blown the top off the scandal before Max Holt shows up. The only "shaking up" that is done is having her car riddled with bullets.
"Max and Jamie are betting their lives on a long shot."
Don't bet your life on a good listen; just bet that you will have an irratating listen.
I learned a lot about the state of Virginia while listening to this book. I was so intrigued that I followed the clues by researching places mentioned on the Internet. I have discussed this book with people more than I have any other books I've listened to. Lisa Gardner made me see a different Virginia than I am use to.
I'm giving this 4 stars due to the above.
I am writing this review because I can not allow this story to get a high score of approval.
I personally did not find the characters nor the story sympathetic. I found the main character excessively self involved.
Perhaps if I had been educated about the Jewish faith, and the Foreign Exchange Market I would have a better appreciation of the complexities in which the writer was trying to express his story; but I doubt it.
I found this story to be long, tedious, and drawn out to the point of dread.
If Nick senses danger, you should too. I believed that I would find another enjoyable heroine to live life vicariously through, unfortunately as the story progressed I couldn't find anything I would want to experience or realize through this unimaginative or simplistic character. I found myself unsympathetic, and unwilling to participate in the experience.
Don't become the sucker I became by buying not only Full House, but Full Blast, Full Speed, and Full Tilt thinking I was buying another series of books with characters that would grow & charm me; unfortunately that is not the case. You will be introduced to the insipid Ms Jamie Swift.
before listening to the adventures of huckleberry finn, i would recommend listening to the study guide first; although the reading of huckleberry finn is very well done, and an extremely pleasant experience, i do not believe i would have accepted certain aspects of the book, with our present day vision, to truly appreciate the humanity shown for the timeframe the story is written
i am very grateful that i listened to the study guide of huckleberry finn before litening to the book; i understood so much more about huck's reasoning throughout the story; the study guide made the listening experience of "the adventures of huckleberry finn" a great pleasure
