Oh my, sorry to give a bad review but -- sooooooooooo boring. One of the main characters is a man and the other a woman. The chapters flip back and forth between characters but the narrator sounds the same in both, so I kept forgetting which was which. Very long and drawn out. No real "action".
The beginning was OK middle was so long and boring that I didn't finish it.
I like books that combine a good story and learning about culture. The story was good and it made me think
The main character -
The story is very weak. Coincidences that are just toooo far of a stretch.
Sure, she is a great author
I had a hard time finishing it. I like Nora Roberts generally, so I kept thinking it would get better, but no luck.
I usually like Lisa Gardner but this book starts out talking about a crime scene where the woman's skin was peeled off in strips and about a cat that the same thing happened too. I can't get pictures like that out of my mind, so I had to stop listening.
The book wa just too drawn out! I couldn't even finish it. Stopped listening after about 25% done.
An easy listen
I'd give away the ending if I told you
Read it years ago and it was just as good the second time around!
I like Nora Roberts type stories, you know they will have a happy ending - maybe not the ending you expect, but still happy. The story kept me on the edge of my seat through parts of it. Lots of twists and turns!
We listened this in the car on a a long trip. If I would have had other books available, I probably would have switched to another. It is a good story, but so long and dragged out -- we found ourselves saying "come on already!"
Yes, because the movie would cut out the long dragged out parts.
Surprising, historical, interesting
It was different than most of the mystery or romance novels I read. Different character types, different story lines. I really liked it. Usually I can always guess what's going to happen, but not this time!
I can usually guess what is going to happen in stories. Not with this one. It really kept me guessing.
Even though it had lots of twists & turns, it was easy to follow. Some books, I have to rewind and say "now who was that again?" Not this one. It was easy to follow and VERY interesting.
I have already recommended it to friends!
