Live by Night is the top of the list. I have read a few Dennis Lehane books before and loved them and Live by Night did not disappoint.
I love the prohibition era and bad guy that you can't help but love.
I don't usually listen to books more than once but I will be listening to this one again. It was excellent. I couldn't stop listening. The characters were very well developed and Lehane really knows how to bring the characters to life. The narration was great too - the story flowed very well.
Going from past to present and it being told from the views of the different characters.
Most of the time. It kept me guessing by only revealing a little bit at a time from different characters. Although I did guess the basic plot it was still enjoyable because of the way it was written.
The subject matter was a little dark and could be upsetting to some. The author did a good job of only giving the details that were needed without being overly graphic during the assault scenes.
I haven't read/listened to anything like this one. I won't spoil the ending but it is amazingly written and the twists are great. It's a mystery, a thriller, a suspense, and so much more.
They really help you connect with the characters. I would definitely prefer this as an audio book to regular book.
This book gripped me from the beginning. And yes I did cry for the elephants.
A must read for everyone. I thought it was a great book throughout then the ending made me love it even more. An audible staff member recommended this book and I am very glad I listened. Thank you!
I love the way the author explains some of the witchcraft leaving enough to the imagination. I also loved the description of Savannah. I lived there for a few years and it was a wonderful city and very quirky. The author nailed it.
If you like stories about Witchcraft or Savannah or both then this a must read.
I think audio edition brought new life to the characters for me.
It reminded me of the lifetime movies I have watched (in a good way - I LOVE lifetime movies).
Great listen especially if you love a good mystery and suspense. The story kept moving a developing at a wonderful pace.
Although this is biographical and historical it is extremely well written and entertaining while also being very inormative. It is amazing how different midwifery and obstetrics was then and how the environment plays such an important role in our lives. I can't wait to listen to the other "Call the Midwife" books. Narration was excellent too.
I can't wait for another book by Hallie Ephron on Audible. This was an excellent suspense/mystery with great plot twists. A must listen. The only down side is I finished so quickly.
Yes - I bouth this book as a daily deal not expecting too much but was pleasantly surprised when I finished that I fell in love the story and all the characters. Then I discovered it was series - bonus! I would listen again becuase I would like to see what I missed the first time that would add to the other books.
Great suspense/drama/mystery with a wonderful plot twist at the end. And the bonus is it's a series. All 3 books are great - hoping for #4.
Yes - it was an easy listen but don't let that distract you from listening to this book. It was very suspensful and kept me on the edge of my seat. I love the narrator and this series.
Just as good as book 1. It leads well to book 3 without leaving the reader hanging too much. Once I finish this series I would definitely read more from Blake Crouch.
It picked up right where book 2 left off and it ended with either a chance for a 4th book or at least your imagination.
Yes and he is one of my favorite narrators and this performance was right up there with the rest of them. He is never over the top so it distracts from the story. He speaks clearly and very easy to hear and listen to.
A must listen for this series - you won't regret it. Hoping there is a book 4 out there in the works.
Blanche - she was the main characters but she was my favorite because she evolved and changed so much by the end of the story.
I love period novels and this one was one of the best. The author was very descriptive of the time period and the surroundings and characters without distracting from the story line too much. It was a definite "page turner". It was not too fast paced but enough to keep your attention. I would highly recommend this book and would love to listen to more books by Emma Donoghue. The naration was great too - she did not over use the accents or voices and did not distract from the story.
