Once I started listening, I could not stop. Before I knew it the book was done but not before there there a few twists and turns. I enjoyed the thorough descriptions in the author made of the island, the people and their seemingly ordinary lives, which were not so ordinary underneath. I look forward to more by this author.
I wasn't sure what to expect but this book hooked me. I love listening to Robert Petkoff and could do so for all books I listen to. He does an awesome job narrating this book. I found myself going through so many emotions with this book. I don't want to give any spoilers by going through any of it. I would recommend this book. I found it well written, very well read (as only Robert Petkoff could do) and look forward to Charles Dubow's next novel.
At first I wasn't sure about this book but the narrator kept me listening. I am so glad I did because I LOVED IT!!! I've just downloaded the others in the series. The narrator was great, the story itself kept me listening to see what would happen next. This book is one of the best I've ever listened too. You love and hate the characters. You laugh and cry with them and can feel the emotion, the struggle that Matthew goes through. I was so moved by the feelings between Matthew and the Magistrate - it was indeed like a father and son.
I don't think you will be sorry with this one.
I got so hooked on this book that I was hard pressed to put it down. I find myself wanting to learn more of the history presented in the book, want to learn more of the characters. The narrator was great! I plan on listening to this one again.
I was totally blown away by this book. I'd no idea about any of this and to learn the story and the story behind the story was amazing. This is a definite recommend.
I've read 4 of the books in this series and I am so hooked!. Robert Petkoff does such a wonderful job on the narration that I find myself searching for more books he has done.
Travis McGee is quite a character and I can't wait to read the next book.
I loved every bit of this book, the story itself and the performance. I look forward to the next Amelia Peabody book. Elizabeth Peters did an awesome job of of painting a picture in my mind and Barbara Rosenblat was great with her narration.
I enjoyed the book very much. I agree with others that the narrator sounded alike with all the characters but for me, it didn't take away from the story as he had a pleasing voice. I look forward to the next book in the series.
I loved this audio and can't wait for Book 2. Nora Roberts does it again with this trilogy. You won't be sorry with this one.
The audio of this book was great. The narrator, John Keating does a terrific job of bringing the characters to life so that you can picture each one in your head.
I could not pick a favorite character because I enjoyed each one of them for different reasons. Each character in the book has their own quirks, their own personalities and I found that I laughed and cried with each.
John Keating does a great job with Fingal but I find that his performance as the
I was moved by Fingal's feelings towards his fellow man. Against all advice to stay distant from his patients, he didn't and they became people with names and faces.
I pray that Patrick Taylor writes more in this series and that John Keating narrates. The books are awesome and the reader is beyond compare. You won't be disappointed with this listen.
