I throughly enjoyed this from start to finish - it helped that I am a golden retriever lover, but also I really enjoyed Andy's sense of humor and the characters in the book. Easy to listen to - keeps your interest - interesting - and funny!
I enjoyed listening to this and the winds of war for the historical information and the narration. I grew weary of the romance subplots and toward the end fast forwarded through them. When I read the books years ago it didn't bother me, but it was easier to speed through the romance when reading it. So, would have given all 5's except for that!!!
The action sections were good, but the commentary took over much of the book. Thought it might be
doable, but after listening to less than half of the book, we couldn't handle anymore of that. The narration was done well though.
After reading the reviews thought this would be great. It was disappointing - the first half didn't catch my interest. Then it picked up and intrigued me, but most of the time I didn't understand the whole premise, and still didn't at the end. So, in summary, it kept my interest enough to listen to the whole thing, but that's it.
I loved this one! It held my interest throughout with many twists and turns. Did not want it to finish!
I really enjoy the narration of this and the previous Bury the Lead. Being a golden retriever owner, I am especially appreciative of Andy's love of his golden, Tara. My only complaint about this audio book was that it was abridged, which took away some of its color.
I enjoyed this story, but found much of the hospital scenes unrealistic. I work in a hospital and have never seen people treat patients like many of the hospital staff in these scenes did.
I had to give this 5 stars - the narrator was terrific as he always is, and the story had unexpected twists and turns, and it held my interest through 17 hours! I DID find it depressing though, because much of the story had dishonorable people and I tired of this.
First let me say that the story kept my attention and the narration was very good. I enjoyed learning about the rest of the Emma Harte saga. At times it went into too much detail about every dress that every person was wearing at an event, etc. but I would still recommend it to anyone who has read the other Barbara Taylor Bradford books. It was at it's best during the suspenseful moments.
This kept my attention, and as other reviews have said, it is not a traditional Danielle Steel novel. It did have some lighthearted parts, but don't listen to it if you need cheering up because of the holocaust and world war 2 theme. You really got to know the characters in this and feel the agony, fear, and bravery of the jews during world war 2. It does have romance too, though!
