Yes, as long as he wasn't reading it - it was terrible! He places emphasis on each word so there's no way you don't understand that He. Is. Making. A. Point....
YES - I had to turn it to speed 1.25 and that helped, but it hurts my ears to listen to this book.
Uh - no.
Buy the printed or Kindle version.
I'm not a re-listener, but I truly did enjoy every minute of this book.
Ms. Moriarty creates such likable characters, with interesting jobs and lives. She's downright funny, but there were many poignant moments as well.
I have not, but would in a heartbeat after hearing her in this one.
There were several - it was so easy to identify with the characters, each in a different way.
This book would be enjoyed by someone who is more into stories than novels. It's mostly dialogue, few facts woven into the story.
Something heavier with more "meat" to it
I haven't heard any of the performers other books, but she is pretty good, and I enjoyed her voice and her intonations were believable.
I'm not sure I would have cut anything from the book - but I would ask the author to develop the characters further. they are so 2 dimensional, it lacks any real depth.
There were characters I enjoyed, and the descriptions were lovely, the story line was intriguing, but no - once was enough.
It was just all a little to hard to believe, like he really left his wife and hurt his daughter after knowing someone for 4 days? He really quit his job and invested that much time and effort into someone again, he'd known so briefly? And the reason for the story line, that (SPOILER) someone would mastermind such an incredible farce... sorry - just can't buy it.
I have not - but I enjoyed his telling of this one.
Life isn't always what you think, people are rarely who they say they are.
Entertaining, thus the 3 stars - but felt short changed after it was over.
I'm not one to re-listen to books, but with The Storyteller, I would find myself replaying chapters at a time. The story is very moving and the dialogue completely captures you.
No spoilers, but the ending is beautiful, haunting and both gives you closure, but also illuminates possibilities of the storylines left unwritten.
All of the characters were interesting - the thing about Jody's books are that her people are so multi-dimensional. This makes them unpredictable and in this case, the story more wrenching. Minka's voice stands out. incredible, the nuances, accent and inflection were flawless.
Obviously a lot of people enjoy JD Robb's books, so I'm sure this was a anomaly, but I was disappointed in the predictability of the plot and the contrived situations the characters found themselves in.
The characters were shallow and one dimensional. I have read Nora Roberts and thought JD Robb lend a rich dialogue, and but these characters did not live up to my expectations.
The accents she uses were very good, but I didn't enjoy the way she made the main character sound. Instead of being likeable, she was whiny and abrasive most of the time.
I wouldn't necessarily cut one of the characters, I would instead build more depth to their stories, and give more than one side to their character.
