Interesting, thought provoking
Wilbur Larch and Homer Wells too hard to choose just one.
I don't have enough time to listen to a book this long all in one sitting but it could have kept my attention for that long.
I really lived this book. Very well written and the performance was great!
I don't write many reviews because I am not an author and I don't like giving spoilers. This book was beautifully written. I felt I had to write a review Beautiful Ruins because I enjoyed it so much!
There are several characters in the book, but each is well developed and Jess Walter did a great job of making sure all of the loose ends were tied up by the end of the story. From the shores of Italy to The west coast of the USA I felt I was in each setting.
Edoardo Ballerini was wonderful. Speaking beautiful Italian sometimes and other times the voice of Deborah, and all of the characters in between. I was able to visualize the settings in the book as if I were watching a movie, or an extra in the story itself.
As I said, I am not a great author, but Jess Walter did a great job with this book. Give it a try and you will love it as much as I did.
I couldn't follow the story line. I listened to ALL of it, thinking it would come together, but it never did for me. I still don't really know what it was about.
I thought the narrators did a really good job. I just wan't able to connect the dots between the different story lines.
I was dissapointed that I couldn't understand what the point of the storry was and couldn't bring it together. It seemed very disjointed to me.
I loved how not only the characters were developed but also the feel of the town.
I enjoyed listening to The witness. Nora Roberts did a great job developing each scene and each character. The plot was somewhat predictable. But that didn't bother me. It was a great romance story with a little mystery. This was my first book by this author, but I will be listening to more
