Non stop listen.
Family deceiving and so much jealousy.
Does amazing accents.
Lindsey finally got married and had a baby.
This was a good story. And what families. It reminded me of the Dynasty and Dallas TV shows. I was entertained.
She did a good job with her performance.
Some parts made me laugh with the dsyfunctional families.
I read Master of the Game years ago and literally could not put the book down. I stayed up all night and read it. This book by Tilly Bagshawe is trash. The characters are petty and irredeemably broken, psychotic, sociopathic, neurotic. The story was anarchistic. The writing is awful.
Not anything by Tilly Bagshawe. I used to read quite a bit of Sidney.
She read too fast, like she was in a terrible hurry to get through the terrible writing. I guess I don't blame her.
The rape and murder scene in South Africa was totally unnecessary. Obviously it was the only thing the author could think of to get her two heroes together. Actually I thought I was listening to an abridged version of the book, since there was really no development of much of anything, just jumping from one fortune made and lost to the next.
Don't waste your time.
Sydney Sheldon is one of my favorite authors. He keeps you captivated.
This book is no different. I love his writing style. I haven't finished the book yet due to my busy schedule so I can't honestly give a favorite part yet. But I have enjoyed what I have listened to so far.
