Dramatic, dynamic, real
I was happy and sad.
Yes, I've heard her perform other Noire books. I always thought she did a good job, and this book was no different. She plays the men well, yet her voice fits these characters that are supposed to be so beautiful perfectly.
I didn't cry, but I was saddened my a few scenes.
Good book overall. Between Hittin the bricks and this one, it's hard to decide which is best of the books I've read so far.
I haven't read the print version, but the narration was outstanding. She conveyed the personalities and emotions very well, and the accents and patois were on the money.
The characters had depth to them and the story was well thought out and perfectly paced. Historical books sometimes tend to be slow, but the author pulled it off perfectly.
I had hope for some of the characters.
This book was more or less like listening to two strangers talk to you about other strangers for 12 hours. The story-telling aspect missed the mark for me. I expected much more excitement. The story would go on and on about the most mundane things. Even the dramatic scenes were pretty lackluster.
I'm not sure.... I may give her another chance.
She did a good job acting out the story and bringing out each character's unique personality.
I liked the characters. The author did an excellent job highlighting their internal conflicts, dreams, and insecurities. Also, it was well written. Perhaps I may have liked this book more if I read the print version instead.
Ashley Antoinette didn't drag the story line from the first three books on until we got bored with it. I loved that. This book could have stood on it's own really. I liked how i had to second guess how i felt about each character. I couldnt decide if i liked or hated them. Also, I loved this stronger, determined Yaya.
When two opposing sides put aside their differences to save a common love.
I enjoyed how the story unraveled. There were touches of foreshadowing here and there that gave the story a hint of suspense. The characters were very human...sometimes even comical.
I like action in my books, but in this case, too much would have taken the heart out of the story, so no.
I can't say what I expected, but I wasn't blown away. Just ok.
She was outstanding. She made me sympathize with Debbie. She brought out her strength and vulnerability at the same time.
Hmmmm...I'd watch it on Netflix.
This book has some action, but not much. It's a moderately paced book mostly about Debbie's internal turmoil and personal growth. Overall, it was a solid book. Worth at least one read.
Absolutely. Great plot, interesting characters, nicely paced.
Yes. This book was unpedictable without being unrealistic. You want to know what's going to happen to the characters in the end, but the journey there pulls the reader in.
He did an awesome job bringing out each character's distinct personality. He didn't just read, he performed.
Yes! All 18 hours if I could have.
I was hesitant when I didn't see any reviews but Im glad I checked this out. This should be on TV. Really enjoyed this read.
Chino.... He was sweet, loyal, protective, and he had style.
I liked how she would match the pace and intensity of her narration based on what was happening. During scenes of action, her voice reflected the excitement and helped to give a better visual.
Price of a father's sins
This book was good all of the way through. Most of the characters were likable and you care what is happening with them. There was a good bit of action, and I never questioned the realism while listening. Good book. This would be a great book for Noir fans. I'm looking forward to part 2.
Patricia Floyd did her thing. In fact, I believe her narration enhanced the story. She gave the characters personalities. The bookwas also interesting on it's own.
Yes. The characters were relatable and the story flowed very well. I hope this book has a sequel in the making.
Can't say much without giving anything away, but it would be last scene between one of the ladies and her man. He shows up at her house unexpectedly. It was touching.
Definitely. I needed answers.
When the big reveal was made, I found it to be a bit unrealistic, but this IS fiction. This is a story that most will enjoy.
It would rank somewhere in the middle.
I always love when a book has rounded, well developed, relatable characters. This book had likeable characters that you don't always agree with. Also, the ending was a bit unpredictable.
There were some supernatural elements that were not explained. I wish they would have gone into detail and explained what was going on. I am looking forward to the next book.
The ending was so good, it made the first few painful hours worth it. It seemed the story dragged on about nothing for the first few chapters with some action thrown in here and there. Eventually, it picked up. I love Carl Weber's twists.
Yes, I usually love Carl Weber's books from cover to cover. Also, the first two Family Business books were awesome.
I think the narrator who read for Rio sounded older than the character, but they all did well.
