    Story
    ""WOW""
    Would you consider the audio edition of Palindrome to be better than the print version?

    yes as Ms Zackman brings all the colorful characters to life.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Palindrome?

    This author really knows how to open a story, bring it to full life, and give you an ending that will stay with you.
    I loved all of the characters as each was so rich. The two brothers, the Detective (don't miss his explanation about his wife, LOL) James will take your heart. Older sister, who wouldn't want one like her, and of course our heroine, brave!
    I didn't understand what the author meant by the title, but the ending brought it all together. Hold on to your hat!


    What does Gabra Zackman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I purchased due to Ms Zackman being the reader. Fabulous job on this book! I own over 100 of her reads as I love her interpretation of an author's works. Her male voices are yummy. Readers' AKA Isabelle Gordon. Enjoy


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listened in one day, and was overwhelmed as the end came just before bedtime. This had it all, thrills, chills, romance and nostalgia. I will seek more of this author if is it is read by a fave reader of mine


    Any additional comments?

    Note: use the new 1.25x speed to get the most out of this book. It matches the pace the author intended.

    "A Praiseworthy Book"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    I loved this book because it kept me engaged to the end. character actors were convincing in every thought and was clear and concise.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    The book could have been a nonfiction bio of Liz Barwick married life.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    The author connected characters and places wonderfully.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    For this book, everything was right.


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I am from Georgia and the narrator massage my vivid imagination as though I was there in every place.

    I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday.

    Story
    "Early Stuart Woods?"
    What disappointed you about Palindrome?

    Everything. Read like a Lifetime movie. Flat steroetyped characters, predictable storyline, stiff dialogue.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Stuart Woods again?

    I don't know - I could swear I read something really good by Woods in the past. This was set in the 80's, and it makes me wonder if it was an early effort.


    What didn’t you like about Gabra Zackman’s performance?

    The heroine was colorless, the detective a monotone, the black characters cliched. Not my favorite reading.


    Any additional comments?

    So disappointed. Almost sent it back, wish I hadn't stuck it out. Meh.

    Story
    "Good Story, Terrible Narrator"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The narrator was obnoxious from the very beginning. She has a way of ending 2 out of 3 sentences as though it were a question with this little inflection in her voice. If that weren't bad enough she would talk in this breathy tone at a place in the story where was not warranted and distracted from the story. I won't listen to her again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Palindrome?

    Learning about the twins past


    How could the performance have been better?

    A whole new narrator
