Have not purchased a Sandra Brown book in a long time and couldn't remember why I quit. Then, I purchased Low Pressue and I was quickly reminded. Boy meets girl. Girl in trouble. Boy fixes problem. Boy and Girl fall in love. Happily ever after isn't always the way life goes. I was diappointed with the book. Time for something new.
Not a Sandra Brown book
Really hard to listen to. He tries hard to change the tone from one character to the next, but it is not working for me. Hard to tell one from the other.
no. enough said
I don't read print versions, so I can't answer this question.
I was a huge fan of John Grisham when he began writing his first book. I got bored with his style after a while and stopped purchasing his books.
The attempt at a deep southern accent was almost sappy it was so drawn out and sloppy. Since the majority of the book is spoken by men, the tone between the men is at times hard to tell apart. By the end, between skipping between the past and present and attempting to change his tone to represent a different man, I found it hard to follow and keep my interest. Every time I tried to listen, I had to go back 5 - 10 minutes to remember where I was in the book. Disappointing.
None. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
Unless you are a diehard Grisham fan, don't bother.
I was hooked at "A" and have read/listened to each one.
It was difficult in the beginning to listen to two very different story lines at the same time as she switched back and forth. and one appeared not to be relevant to the other. Then all of the sudden you get that "AH HA" when you realize the two stories are actually one. Cool moment for me. Smooth move Sue!
I like listening to Judy. Kinsley Millhome is quite a woman. I feel like I know her and would welcome her into my home. She may fly under the radar, but don't under estimate her!
That AH HA moment when the two stories become one and only then did you realize the truth in it all.
Way too long between the last novel and "W". And, seeing there is only X,Y and Z left for Sue, I hope she gives Kinsley an happy ever after when she is finished and not a forever after in that old black dress.
I do not read paperbacks
Was expecting a big boom, but it went out with a fizzle.
There really was not a favorite "scene" for me. I skipped over some of the book when the crimes were described in detail.
No. It was extremely long and I could only listen for so long and I needed a break. It was not one that couldn't wait to get back to. I had to make myself finish.
Not a fan of this author, but it was recommended. Can't visualize the use of electronics and droids.......
I have not listened to a book which walked you through the actual crime with such detail. It was disturbing to me and I skipped many of the horrible details. And, I have seen a lot in my career so I don't have a weak stomach.
Not feeling that he is someone I will listen to again. He has taken the time to develop the characters, but it is sometimes difficult to visualize who is talking as the tone does not vary from the detective to murderer.
Happy listening to you all.
I would think twice before purchasing another of her books.
Still a James Patterson fan...waiting on the next one
Average. Since there were a limited number of male voices, she did an ok job on the women.
No it did not
There were just far too many details for me in this book. I don't care that there are 5 different color whites, or how many yards of material is needed for things. I had to make myself continue listening. Instead of looking forward to the rest of the book, I found myself checking to see how many hours were left over and over again. All of these women were made to look stupid and lacking common sense. The story could have been told in half the time without in depth details that did nothing for the story. Sorry ladies, this is my last read of your books.
Maybe in a few years when I have forgotten the story.
You can almost hear the wheels churning and understand the precise moment it all comes to gether in her mind.
C J Critt is the reason that I purchased this book. I really enjoy female readers. I feel they have the ablility to change their range per the characters moreso than a male reader can do.
As a mother who has lost a child, I was moved by the lengths she went to as she followed her motherly instincts....knowing something wasn't right. She was like a dog with a new bone. Everyone thought she was crazy, but she was RIGHT.
Looking for another CJ Critt book to listen to. I'd love Linda Barnes to develop this character and start a series with her. She has a little twist that some of the authors of female characters in thrillers do not have. The character is so well developed...she should do more.
If they were fans of Patterson, yes. If not, no. If this was the first Patterson book I listened to it would be my last.
I would have finished the story instead of leaving loose ends and leaving the readers disappointed.
Hard to tell one from the other as there were so many characters.
I like Patterson, so I would be the first in line to get a new book from this author.
If you are a fan of Patterson, you will not like the way this one ends. Its another globe trotter that takes concentration to keep up with the players,. I had to repeat the last chapter over again to make sure it ended the way it did. Personally disappointed in the book.
A real good listen
The characters are so well developed and defined. You can easily draw a vivid mental photo of them.
It was all good
No, I have a 3 hour commute every day. However when it got to the last few chapter, I found myself listening while at home.
I'm a huge Patterson fan, so I felt like I was cheating on him by listening to another author. I saw Linda Fairstein recently on the Today show and thought I would give her a listen, as she sounded like she was writing the kind of books that hold my attention. Although the book was long, I guess it was necessary to get the story told. I could do without all of the other little stories that were being told within the book. I'm hooked and am on to book # 2.
Did not read the print version
Lots of twists and turns, but not as edge of your seat as some of her other novels.
Although Kirsten Potter is excellent, with this book she is the voice of several different women and there was little difference in the pitch/sound of their voices. I would have to wait for a few seconds to realize which character was speaking,
No. I listen while on the road. However when I got to the last chapters, I caught myself staying up late to hear the end of the plot.
Not one of her best books, but still enjoyable. The female characters in the book are so tightly woven together, it is sometimes hard to separate them. There are far too many references to the baby and motherhood. OK, we never thought Dee Dee would step into the roll of motherhood, but she is not the only woman on the face of the earth to give birth after 40 and struggle with the balancing of work/motherhood/relationships. If the author would put all of the effort into developing the characters and less about her personal life, it would make the book more interesting. i would recommend to someone who likes Lisa Gardners books. But, if this is your first Lisa Gardner book, it might very well be your last. Love listening to Kirsten Potter
