If you want a sickly sweet girl novel, this would be the perfect listen. Not what I expected.
This is one of my all time favorite books by Elizabeth Lowell. I have read the hard copy over and over to the point the book is falling apart - I was so disappointed when I purchased this and realized, after I was half way through the book, that it was abridged! I kept thinking my memory of the storyline was faulty. I just don't understand the concept of abridging an audio book - what's the point? It's my own fault for not paying attention, but I'm still very disappointed.
It wasn't in the abridged version
The ENTIRE book
! Love to listen to jazz, r/b and listen to erotic or a good paranormal sci-fi and " good narration is everything"
Good story just wish it wasn't abridge had a lot of action, drama, spies, cold hearted agent finds he's not as heartless as he think
Yes, I thought the story moved quickly and it had lots of turns and twists.
I did listen to the story in one day, as I did my house work and yard work.
It was a story worth listening to.
I have not read the printed version.
Both the male and female protagonists. The ying and yang of their characters complimented each other perfectly.
Even though this is a shorter 'read' than I usually endeavor, this book fascinated me with its description of how some archealogical artifacts could be dated and could be used as a political tool. The two main protagonists characters appear initially to be polars apart in their ethics and history, yet as the story progressed, the Eastern philosophical context of the ying and the yang being necessary to create and heal a whole fairly jumps out at the reader, without even having to think on it. The story line flows well, showing the intricasies of truth in dating artifacts as interwoven as the espionage of politcal jockeying. There is action aplenty and thought provocking twists and turns throughout.
The reader was consistant in her portrayal of characters as well as interesting in her inflections. Even the 'boring' portions of the archaeological explainations was made easier to attend. Overall, this was a 'can't wait to get in the car and listen' kind of book.
I was not thrilled with the audio book. Part of it is my problem for not being attentive enough and realizing it was abridged.
Part of it was the narration. I felt the distinction between the voices - while attempted - was not pulled off well.
I loved it! I own the printed book, and
I would buy a full length audio version if I could. The narrator particularly brings the Chinese characters to life for me, and I would listen to her again anytime.
Tell Me No Lies would rank in the top 20% of audiobooks I've listened to.
