In the over 65 books I have purchased and listened to this is by far the worst. First of all although it said it was released in 2007 it was written in 1986. The racist terms that are used to describe the Jewish characters made me sick. I won't be finishing this book. This a first for me.
This is the first Nora Roberts book I can't get past the first hour. It is just awful. The narration (which I never complain about) is so bad, the writing is bad...I am just glad I only paid $5.00 for it. Makes the pain a little less painful...
I have listened to hundreds of books and it is very rare for me to choose to stop listening mid-book. It got to the point where I was shaking my head saying "let's see - he is going to do so something else he shouldn't do so they think he is guilty". I couldn't stand it anymore. I just don't care how it ends...cause if it was up to me - with the choices he made in the book - I would find him guilty and put him away myself. What a waste of a good credit.
I fell in love with the characters instantly. I thought the story was great and felt a sense of loss when it ended. I will actually miss listening. I thought the narrator was perfect and could not wait to get in my car and continue to listen.
I try not to give negative reviews but the narration on this book was just so bad it made it hard to listen to the story. I truly hope that the third and final book will have a different narrator. The story was ok - somewhat predictable but I am such a Nora Roberts fan she can do no wrong...
I loved this book. I was never exactly sure how it was going to turn out and it continued to keep me wanting for more. I am sad that it is done. I need to find another Nora Roberts soon...
After just reading The Shining for the first time then going straight to Doctor Sleep it was a fun ride indeed. Doctor Sleep did exactly what I need an audio book to do...make me not want to get out of the car when I get home and look forward to getting in the car the following morning to listen some more. The story was great. Just when I thought I had figured something out I was surprised all over again. I just finished the book and am already sad because I will miss listening on the way home. I truly loved this book.
I feel cheated out of a credit. This book was a struggle to get through. I thought about quitting 3 or 4 times. The story was weak. The love story was over the top and not to be believed and the ending was even worse. Don't waste your time on this.
This book is so bad I had to stop listening and give up a credit. I don't think I have ever done that. The voice for Gideon is awful. There is no story. I gave it 3 chapters and am throwing in the towel. Don't waste your money
I can't believe I am as old as I am and have never read anything by Stephen King. Well I would have to say the wait was worth it. This book was fantastic. The narration could not be better. I have listened to and read many "thrillers" and not one had me actually scared. The way the story was told kept me wanting more. This may have been my first but it certainly won't be my last. Can't wait for the next one.
I loved this book. I still feel a loss that it ended. I want more of these characters. The story kept my attention. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who loves Nora Roberts or even if this is your first - you will love it.
