It is a wonderful book, but I never listen to a book again nor do I watch a movie twice.
I really liked Iky Soloman and Mary Abacus. Although they had to do many illegal, immoral things, it was because of their life situations and I loved that they had integrity and and that they used their intelligence and instincts to survive unthinkable conditions.
Iky Solomon. I cannot imagine any other voice for him, he was perfect!
I thought that was a perfect name. When you begin with the book, it does not seem to fit but as Mary is imprisioned on the island and then creates her own brewery, it all goes back to Iky and his influence over her and then her adopted sons. It is her salvation.
I loved the book. Historical fiction has never interested me before and I do not know why I bought this book but I am so glad that I did. I love the characters and seeing how their backgrounds have affected their development. The historical information included also has been extremely interesting. I am now listening to the 2nd part of the trilogy, Tommo and Hawk and am engrossed in it also.
As usual, I loved Janet Evanovich's latest book, Notorious Nineteen! I enjoy all of the quirky characters and am happy to see Stephanie getting closer to making a commitment to Joe!
All of the other books, 1 -18 as you feel you know each of the characters.
Her voice sounds like you think Stephanie Plum's voice would sound and it is nice to have her read each of the books.
Lula and Grandma Masur always make me laugh!
I cannot wait until 20!
Yes, the narrator has a very pleasant voice and I enjoy listening to books as I drive.
Any of the other Virgin River books
When they bought the house
I wish you would send these sooner. I am almost finished listening to my next book and I am reading another book so it is hard to remember.
I enjoyed it a lot. It is not a deep book with thought provoking ideas or history but sometimes it is nice to listen to a book with happy endings and nice love stories.
Virgin River. It has some of the same characters and the same settings.
Yes. It was comparable with the other two I have listened to. I have enjoyed them all.
No, I just enjoyed it.
I travel for work and it is an easy book to listen to. The characters are well developed and it always kept my interest. I was always ready to get back in the car so I could continue the story.
The book's plot was very difficult to get involved in and the reader's voice was irritatingly slow. I even increased the speed but it did not help much.
The plot did not get interesting until the end of the book. I kept thinking this has to get better and it finally did but it took most of the book to get there.
Her slow drawl just did not enhance the book at all. It sounded like she had just gotten out of bed and had not quite woken up yet.
It had a decent ending, it just needed more to build up to it.
I enjoyed the reader and believe it added to the listening experience. I think this falls in the same category as the Janet Evonivich mysteries. I would not read her books any more as I love to listen to them. I have listened to everyone of them on recordings and now will be looking forward to adding Susan Albert books read by Peggity Price to my list.
The Janet Evonovich mysteries. I like the reader and the characters.
No, this was the first.
It made me laugh several times and cry a little when they all gathered to help the young boy that escaped the prison camp.
I liked the book also because it was a nice, clean bookd and I could listen to it in the car with my sons present.
