    "What a great book!!"

    This book was so great!
    I stumbled upon this series (started on book 5, and loved it so much I wanted to read the rest of the series) and I LOVE them ALL!
    I was surprised at how little our main character (D.D. Warren) was in this book but it was still a very good book! (Don't worry- she takes over the rest of the books and is amazing).

    Very good book- Very worth a credit!!!!

    "An excellent listen"

    This is the second Lisa Gardner book I have listened to and it did not disappoint.

    Ms. Gardner's characters are tortured souls thrust into untenable situations. It is sink or swim and her characters rise up against formidable odds.

    The one thing I found a bit odd about the choice of narrator was that it was a female yet the central character is a man. It took a bit of time to get used to this but I was soon caught up in the story, it no longer mattered who was narrating.

    This book is one of the very best I've read or listened to in a long time. The psychological twists kept me riveted. impossible to predict how things will turn out. Good narrator also, which is so important to me.

    "Don't do that, Don't do that"

    One of those books where the main character keeps making decisions that make you crazy. Bad decisions through the entire book up to the end. I'm enjoying the Bobby Dodge / DD Warren books and this is one of my favorites.

    "Alone"

    This book was not as gripping and riveting as HIDE was. I like this author's work so far, but ALONE was okay and I did give it 3 stars.....

    "Fast, fun read"

    If you're looking for something quick and light-hearted, this is a good choice. Janet Evanovich does it again. And the narration really fit the style of the book. Not a deep, complicated story but it was just what I was looking for a the time. A little escapism.

    "Bad Narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probably not.


    Any additional comments?

    I have not finished the book. I found the narration to be dreadful. I couldn't get into the book at all listening Anna Fields narrate. Her voice lacks any real emotion and having her narrate for the main character which is male left me wandering and continuing to replay just to hear what she had last read. Probably won't finish which is too bad.

    "A Great Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Alone to be better than the print version?

    I Loved the audio version of this book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Alone?

    The moment that sticks out most in my mind happened early in the book. After officer Dodge pulled the trigger, he saw Catherine through his scope mouth the words "thank you." That event more than any other stuck with me and despite what happened later on convinced me that someone else was involved in the events that unfolded.


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

    Anna Fields did an excellent job with the voices of different characters. Although she had a little trouble with the male voices, I enjoyed listening to her. That is one huge advantage the audio version has over the printed version, especially if there is a good narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The major emotion I felt was anger, mostly directed toward the judge. The fact that one person could use the power of his position to affect so many facets of life is simply mind boggling. The fact that it could happen, and probably is happening, is what angered me the most.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book by Lisa Gardner. The plot twists kept me off balance and gave me doubts as to my initial theory of guilt. I will definitely be reading more of Ms Gardner's works.

    Horrible, horrible male voices

    No
