I am a huge Lisa Gardner fan but this story was fabulous--IMHO, her best so far. I literally could not stop listening, the twists and turns just kept coming, and the narration was perfect.
Nelly Bly, a reporter, goes undercover as a "crazy" woman and is committed to a mental institution (where most, ultimately, spend the rest of their lives). It is a narrative of the treatment of the mentally ill (and some perfectly normal women) in the early 20th century. Frightening and disturbing~Nelly was a brave young woman.
The plot and characters were well done but the narration bothered me from the beginning and was so distracting. As I said in the headline~It could have been much better.
Though not for the faint of heart, I really enjoyed this story. Max and Ivy are likable characters (would love to see a sequel) and if this were a print book, I would call it a real page turner. The ending, in my opinion, was just perfect.
My favorite Audible purchase of 2013. Heartbreaking story, beautifully written, and superb narration. Could not stop listening.
A real page turner. Great story, wonderful characters, and a fantastic narrator. One of those works that you just want to keep listening to find out what happens next. The ending was just perfect! Anxious to read/listen to P. M. Richter's other books.
Love this story, the narration is perfection, and I could not stop listening. My first Robert Crais, but will not be my last! Am hoping for more stories of Maggie and Scott.
Really enjoyed this story. Murder, wealth, and a love story-- my three favorite components! Ellie is a great character, as is Luke. Just downloaded "DOUBLEBACK"!
Could not stop listening. Beautifully written, a very strong main character, and told within the backdrop of the Iranian Revolution. Listening brought forth so many emotions in me--love, sadness, fear, and strength of the human spirit--to name just a few. The characters are well-developed, the narration fabulous, and the history of the Revolution very well researched. When I hear of Iran, I will always think of this tale because if the right circumstances lined up this upheaval could occur in any country (as similar situations have in recent history). Bottom line is--I LOVE THIS STORY!
Touching, Stunning, and Brilliant
His voice translated the feelings of the characters.
Yes, it was very hard to stop listening.
Sylvain Reynard wrote a beautiful love story and I am anxiously waiting for the third book!
