    Daughter of a cold, controlling mother and an anonymous donor, studious, obedient Elizabeth finally let loose one night, drinking too much at a nightclub and allowing a strange man’s seductive Russian accent to lure her to a house on Lake Shore Drive. The events that followed changed her life forever. Twelve years later, the woman now known as Abigail Lowery lives alone on the outskirts of a small town in the Ozarks. A freelance programmer, she works at home designing sophisticated security systems.

    The narration was SO VERY bad that I just couldn't finish it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nora Roberts again?

    maybe with a different narrator


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Julia Whelan?

    Scott Brick


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    I don't know. I didn't listen to enough to make a fair assessment


    Any additional comments?

    no nothing

    From one coast to the other, to the far side of the globe, three diverse characters follow paths that will mysteriously connect: Tina Lopez, endowed with a special gift from God; Ethan Kelly, a young Irish-American priest-in-training; and K.C. Littleton, who will prove that old adage, "Be careful what you wish for." All will discover a new appreciation for faith, forgiveness, and family.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Absolutely nothing. This is by far the worst written book I've listened to and wish I could turn it back in for another credit. It makes me very angry that I've selected it!!


    Has The Migrant turned you off from other books in this genre?

    This is most definitely not a Christen book. It's full of silly ridiculous teen age swearing. Beyond the fact that's its so very poorly written.


    How could the performance have been better?

    No idea. Not sure it could be fixed


    What character would you cut from The Migrant?

    The characters are not the issue. It is misrepresented as a Christian novel


    Any additional comments?

    I am angry that I wasted my money choosing it.

    Set against the colorful tumult of events that gave rise to our fledgling nation, this novel of romance and adventure introduces Phillipe Charboneau. The illegitimate son of an English nobleman, Phillipe flees Europe and, as Philip Kent, joins the men who set our course for freedom. The Bastard is the first volume in the Kent Family Chronicles, a series of novels that details one family's journey in the early years of the American nation.

    What disappointed you about The Bastard?

    The story was hokey and unrealistic. The entire story could have been said in less than half the words.


    What was most disappointing about John Jakes’s story?

    The protagonist was an idiot that walked into so many ridiculously silly unthinkable situations it was laughable


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The reader did a reasonable job and I would chose him as a reader again.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment

    One evening in 1951, an itinerant storyteller arrives unannounced at a house in the Irish countryside. In exchange for a bed and a warm meal, he invites his hosts and their neighbors to join him by the wintry fireside, and begins to tell formative stories of Ireland's history. Ronan, a 9-year-old boy, grows so entranced by the storytelling that, when the old man leaves abruptly under mysterious circumstances, the boy devotes himself to finding him again.

    S. Marie says: "A wonderfully read history of Ireland"
    "Lousy narrator"

    Would you try another book from Frank Delaney and/or Frank Delaney?

    No, the narration was a major challenge it seemed to go from 60 db down to 10 db making it difficult to understand.

    Story
    (261)

    From mega-selling author Jodi Picoult comes an engrossing tale of medical morality and parental responsibility. Charlotte O'Keefe's daughter is born with osteogenesis imperfecta and will endure endless broken bones. Facing unthinkable medical costs, Charlotte considers a troubling solution. If she goes to court and says she would have terminated the pregnancy had she known of her daughter's condition, she might get enough money for a lifetime of medical expenses.

    Amy Augustine says: "Worth it"
    "A total absolute waste of time"
    Overall

    The only reason I gave it one star is because I had to!!! I haven't written a review but this was such a waste of time I had to do this too. I can't tell you not to listen to it but it is worthless. I can't even imagine why someone would write a book this bad.
