I've read other Lesley Pearse titles and bought this same on the assumtion that they would be just as exciting. If it wasn't for the Narrator I would have left this book half way. The situations didn't add up. That is what I found most unbecoming. LP is a lovely author, but this is not one of her best books.
I listened to this book just for the whole purpose of getting to the end. Nothing exciting ever happens in the book, and it's one you'd listen to if you didn't have anything better to do. Of if you can't sleep. Lie down, relax and listen and trust me you'll be instantly asleep. Rosalyn Landor has a wonderful voice that coupled with a boring book puts you to sleep in a flash. If it wasn't for Rosalyn Landor I wouldn't have even gone through 30 mins of the book.
Robert Langdon starts his books like he always does. An explosive beginning! Except now he’s not running away or being whisked off at warp speed in private jets. Here he’s flat in a hospital bed with amnesia and a bullet wound in his head, with a female assassin shooting up the hospital trying to kill him. One thing that is a given in the Robert Langdon series is how Dan Brown copies Ian Fleming, and gives his hero a beautiful clever female sidekick, in this case the female doctor Sienna Brooks who was treating Langdon when he stumbled into the hospital.
Sienna Brooks, being a doctor and who comes across as being street smart and able to think fast on her feet has this really irritating quality of giving Langdon bits and pieces of information from when he stumbles into the hospital and never the whole thing in one go. You’d think that someone with an IQ of 208 (Steven Hawkins was 200) would know better.
As Langdon and Sienna stumble through the city and the Piazzas there are way too many references to his eidetic memory. Don’t understand why it needs to be repeated so. Mention it once, twice; we get the point! Don’t wear it thin!!??
Amazing how Langdon see’s the blemishes on the back of Dante’s Death Mask while it’s in the plastic and then totally forgets about looking for them or just doesn't see them after he’s taken the mask out of the plastic until Sienna hurriedly stops him and tells him about the blemishes.
Lots of gaps but must say if I go on it’ll just be spoilers. At the end of the day it is a work of fiction, and to be taken with a pinch of salt. As a read it’s a pretty good one, that is if you’re not so picky about the details as I am.
Very much worth a credit!
I absolutely loved this book!!! It was filled with intrigue, mystery, love, passion and just the right amount of humor to warm your heart. I loved they way Sandra Burr did the before version and James Daniels the present day version. Both have wonderful voices. I've always loved Nora Roberts and this is definitely one of her better works, though I thought the end was a tad bit rushed.
If you are interested in Historical fiction with romance then this is the book for you. Very seductive, as well as moving. This is definetly worth a credit. Moira's voice is such that you just want to listen, and it calms your senses. If you want to just sit by the pool and relax, or sit by the fire (depending on which hemisphere your in) then this book is must.
This is my first book of EH and I must say I only downloaded the book cause of the narrator. I do love historical romances, so that was an added bonus. I must say I couldn't get enough of Moira Quirk's voice. The story I must say was a bit confusing at the beginning of each chapter but after two chapters I figured it was a reading from the little red book in the Earl's library. The characters are not flat and EH makes you feel for them.
They have lots of passion and drive.
worth a credit..
Winterblaze is more than a book. It's an emotional adventure into a highly addictive paranormal world starring two well-crafted characters who command every scene, complete with a stellar supporting cast who leave a mark of their own.
The Narrater Moira Quirk gives life to the story with her wonderful seductive voice.
The novel and the narrator left me wanting more of the Darkest London stories, and that’s how I want every book I read to end.
This easy Tswana is very good. They have covered almost all the basics. Another reviewer said that the male and female pronunciations were different. This is true and what the listener missed is that the male voice gives it you exactly how it's supposed to be said. While the female voice gives you the pronunciation in the spoken way that you would hear native speaker say it. This is needed so you don't get confused when you actually hear the words being spoken by a native speaker.
I've given the Story only 3 stars cause it would have been better if they covered more. This is way too basic, won't be enough for anyone trying to start learning the language. Other than that it's pretty perfect.
I must say this was a really enjoyable read. Very hillarious, smoldering and romantic at the same time. A must read.
This book is the start of a great trilogy. Very well written and beautifully romantic. Can't wait till the whole series gets out.
