I read The Corset Diaries which was really good. I laughed a lot and figured I'd try something else. I was not happy with this choice. The book was slow. I was confused about the character. The fact that she is afraid of animals at one time and then is comfortable working on them threw me for a loop. I am not sure if I would try another book.
I didn't believe that the character with all her confidence was single. It seemed as if the story was about two different people. If we were told the character was bi-polar, it would have made much more sense to me.
No comment about the narrator. I didn't think she impacted my bad experience. This was the only book downloaded to my Ipod. I will not make that mistake again. I was forced to listen to this story until reaching home. I was tempted to listen to the radio and did for a time. I did not even complete the 1st part. I can't get through it.
The main character.
I really thought this would be a great book. It wasn't. I am surprised at the comments because I did not enjoy this one at all.
I do both, listening and reading. if my week is very busy, audio will be my choice, if not, sitting with a book is also nice.
How different and so similar. The female character was a computer geek, with 100% positive confidence, social off balance, but so loving. Chief Brooks was just your typical Southern boy with lots of charm. Adding his mother, sisters and the town folks, just made this one of best Nora Roberts novel for me. I so love the length of the story, such a delicious books needed a great length, lol.
My favorite scene, was when Brooks told Abby he loved her and she freaked out. The reason for the breakdown, One one had ever told her they loved her. He promised to tell her for the rest of her life, everyday. She had her hand fisted tight over her heart, as if letting go, will take away the words. That was a tear moment for me.
The: I will tell you I love you everyday
The funniest scene was when she kneed him in the you know what, added with am under cut to the throat. Laugh out, with tears
