I enjoyed listening to Liz bring Julia & Sebastian to life. Her voice gave a an accurate portrayal of how I envisioned the characters. She did a very good job with all the various accents of the different characters-- it made it easy to follow the story. The book kept me on the edge of my seat- story was pretty fast paced.
Use books for escape- typically avoid nonfiction. Enjoy action-romance, espionage/military, sci-fi. Skilled writing is most important.
The female protagonist is well educated, strong, and knows her own mind and her love interest in the story is street-smart and macho.
Suspense surrounds a secret operation in a small village outside the U.S., causing the primary tension in the plot. The romance balances on differing ideas of relationships rather than miscommunications or hot tempers, which I enjoyed.
The book is relatively well written, but the reader took me a while to get used to. She starts out a bit rough and is terrible with Aussie accents, but after the first hour, I wasn't too bothered.
For me, a book gets 5 stars only if I must miss sleep to listen to it, so this one's only 4 stars.
