As someone who who has heard or read Scott Turows' other novels, I was expecting a better story. The narration was poorly done and did not seem to mesh with the story. The narrator of previous books did a much better job. The story itself had a fair plot, but was not up to Turow standards. I was easy to figure the various twists and switches that were supposed to keep the reader spellbound but did not.
Turow should stick to his former cast and and formula; it is a winner.
Any one of the other narrators who have read Turows' other books.
Evans' girlfriend. She adds nothing to the story, and not because of her sexual orientation.
i would like to return it, but have recently returned another book I did not like, and do not want to make this a practice.
King proves once more that he is a master of the story. I got mad at him for creating likeable characters and then killing them off, but overall the story line kept me listening to the end. This is not the usual King horror, so do not be put off. There is no supernatural, just nomal if sad characters. Anyone who likes a well written story will enjoy this book. The narrator did such a good job that the focus was on the story line, not the speaker.
This is a great listen. Sandford is at his best here. The guy banter is so fun and I enjoyed that as much as the real story. The ending was a hoot! The narrator was well suited to this story. A real fun read.
This story has twists that kept me listening to the end. The author takes the novel formula and turns it on it's side. This is a psychological thriller per excellence. The narration was OK, but the story line really grabbed me. Listen when you have plenty of time, because you will not want to stop!
This 2nd book shows how rich and powerful men can manipulate for their own uses. From buying up companys to control girlfriends to using and discarding women. This is the type of man that mothers warn their daughters about, or at least they should. It also feeds into the female fantasy that all a man need to correct serious personality disorders is the love of a good woman. That fiction comes up on a lot of female romance novels. The erotic scenes are well done and the author and reader capture them well. I got this book because of all the hype and overall it is a good read if one does lose sight of the fact that it is pure fantasy fiction.
The story is pure fantasy with a predictable ending. The standard formula of rich troubled man meets poor but attractive woman. She is inexperienced and honorable and he initiates her to lust. I purchased it because of the book reviews. One must suspend reality while reading/listening to the book. This is not literature but rather entertaining, if one can overlook the unrealism.
The Art world which featured so prominently in previously was absent in this novel.
Added more suspense. The end was very predictable
the war criminal was not very believable.
The narrative about the world of art restoration is interesting and informative, set inside a well managed story. It is an education for the reader, who like myself knows little about that world.
this book is the first Silva novel I have heard. It has an excellent story line with lots of turns and subplots.
The old woman who tells of the future is in this and other Silva books.
I have heard George Guidall's readings previously and always like the low key of his readings
I have discovered that one can choose any of the series without missing out on the whole story line. I plan to listen to the whole series.
good story line and characters
the governesses death was touching
I have been reading Archers books for 15 years and will continue to read as long as new books come available.
yes, there are twists and turns that keep the reader interested. The ending left me a little let down. This is one of the earlier in the series and the overall story seems fresh.
Mr. Roberts is a very lively narrator. His many voices seem true to life and add interest
