This is one book you will want to listen to over and over. Mary Alice is not only a wonderful author but she reads her own books and, really, I can't imagine anyone else reading her stories to us. She knows her characters better than anyone and becomes them as she's reading her story to us!
The best part is that this is the first book in a trilogy and you will be looking for the second book as soon as you finish this one! But......we'll have to wait until next year and it will be well worth waiting for!
Although there are some books that I do listen to again and again, I don't normally do that unless I'm looking for an unanswered question as I already know the ending and the plot twists.
Yes, the plot had some interesting twists and turns and I looked forward to returning to the book to read each time after I'd have to put it down for a while. It really held my interest.
Susan did an excellent job and was the perfect reader for this book.
Yes, I would have liked to have been able to devote more time to listen at each sitting but I wasn't able to do that.
I was surprised when the book ended and I find most endings disappointing.
Not after reading this book! I was so looking forward to reading a new book by Anne Rivers Siddons because I hadn't read a book of hers for a while and used to REALLY love her books. It was almost as if this was written by a different author. I was so disappointed......
The characters were flat.....lifeless....people you didn't really care about as there was no substance to them....nothing to interest you in them or their lives. It was a huge non-story. The ending was absolutely ridiculous. I'm not happy that I wasted one of my credits on this book. But, I did read it to the end just to see if it got any better. It only got worse. Bad characters, bad storyline and unnecessary bad language.
The narration was terrible....especially Baby! Just awful!
All of them!
This is a most wonderful story with great characters who really come to life by the reader, Jenna Lamia. She is the perfect voice for the perfect book! You'll definitely listen to this book more than once!
