I was thoroughly entertained by this book. I listened to it on my long drive to visit my mother in another state during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. I enjoyed the characters who all had such bold, yet different personalities. Thanks to the combination of Susanna Kearsley's writing and Nicola Barber's narration, I could picture each of the characters as if they were standing right in front of me.
The only area of improvement that I would point out is the way Nicola Barber would suddenly lose a character's accent while reading their part. It was a little distracting at times.
Overall, however, I thought the audio book was well done. It brought to mind one of my favorite movies, Somewhere In Time. Only in this book, the woman is the one who goes back in time.
I do not read a lot of biographies or autobiographies. I could not pass up a chance to learn more about our newest Supreme Court Justice however. I am so glad that I did. All at once, this audio book is educational, inspiring, entertaining and extremely human.
I completely relate to her journey of coming from humble beginnings to becoming a well-educated woman. I highly recommend this book.
This audio book moves really quickly. The story is well written. It is descriptive, but it does not bore the reader with mundane details. I found myself wishing for a longer commute just to see what would happen next. The combination of action, suspense and romance mixed with a message that rings true here in the present makes for an excellent listen. Hopefully, the next book in the series will be just as good.
Among all the audiobooks I have listened to so far, I would put Expats in my top 10.
Yes it did. I found myself wondering what was going to happen next quite a bit.
Kate was my favorite character.
I laughed a few times.
Yes. I plan on listening to Spy the Lie again in order to dedicate more of the lessons to memory. There is a lot of information in this audio book and I am glad I can listen to it over and over again.
One of the most memorable moments was the breakdown done on the Sandusky case.
I have not.
It made me laugh in some parts and drew shock from me in others.
I absolutely loved this audio book! From the writing to the narration, this was a book I easily got lost in. I highly recommend it.
Transfixing, Entertaining, Brilliant
I enjoyed the subtle nuances that interconnected the stories of the characters.
I enjoyed the many voices and accents.
Nothing is ever as it seems.
Elizabeth Gilbert breaths life into this book with her lulling voice and changing accents to animate the various characters she describes.
One of the most memorable moments of the book was when she described all of the foods she ate in Italy. I could almost smell and taste the foods as I listened.
I enjoyed the fact that is sounded like Ms. Gilbert sounded like she was talking to a friend rather than reading.
If I were to make a film of this book, the tag line would be Pretty Power.
