I love the way that Lisa Gardner brings relationships into her novels. I'm always interested in the solving of the crime, but I'm also interested in the characters themselves.
The most interesting part of the story was the beginning when the character of the mother was defined and the relationship she had with her children. The least interesting was wa relationship between the two sisters.
The narrator brings a clarity of character to the people that wouldn't be there if the story was just read to oneself. She makes each character a distinct and real.
I really like the narrator. She has a way of making the voices and characters come alive for me. I didn't like the developement of the main character as well in this book. It was probably just my taste but I wanted her to be stronger and less "messed up."
The ending because you got a sense of a new beginning in the works. It wasn't like everything was suddenly okay, but yet it was like reality where people have to work at fixing their problems with a little sunshine on the horizon.
I have listened to the book 3 times already and have loved it every time. Each time I find another level of the story and enjoy it even more.
I loved the way the story plot twisted and turned so that you were on the edge of your seat. I also loved the character development and interraction.
I've not listened to any other Kate Burton's performances before but will look for them in the future.
I thought the scenes when the main chacter realized that his family and loved ones were the ultimate target of the murderer were especially poignant.
This book and presentation is extremely well done. I would recomment it to anyone.
I liked the fact that it was different and innovative. I have never read a book like this with this kind of a story line before. Usually anything with a supernatural or science fiction theme is somewhat predictable. This one wasn't. I didn't like the fact that it ended so abruptly. I'm assuming that there is or will be a sequel and the author wants to leave the reader in suspense so that the he/she will continue on with the series. However, this was too much of a cliff hanger. I didn't feel that a lot of the loose ends were tied up enough to make the book understandable. I felt somewhat robbed of an ending.
I would recommend Raintree to my friends but not whole heartedly. I would tell them that it's a good read but will not keep them on the edge of their chairs with either interest or suspense.
I liked the scenes where Emma apopeared and called Raintree "Daddy." I thought that was an interesting part of the story.
No, probably not. I would watch it if it came on tv, though.
NO. The writer didn't develope a good plot and The narrator was too "sing songy."
No, the story was just fluff and not substance.
The narrator's voice was too "sing Songy" and too little girlish.
There is an old saying that "if you suffer, you can do good art." I should be able to do good art now. In fact I should have take Van Gogh's idea and cut off my ear - both of them!
Yes it had a very good plot that held your interest.
I liked all of the characters.
The emphasis on certain parts of the book lent itself to the drama and storyline.
It is one of the best in all areas.
Sarah McCarty's books are especially good and very consistent in their high quality.
I like the ending because it set up the next book in the Hells Eight Series.
I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book. The suspense was pallatible at times and the story moved along with ease.
I can't wait for the rest of the Hells Eight Series.
