    "Very Very Good"

    The reader was captivating and the story was good enough to make me hope there is a second book. I want to know what happens to the characters as they go through life.

    "Disappointment"

    This book was disappointing in many ways. I think Nora should take a break and quit spitting out so many books. The main character is so self-depricating I want to slap her. And she complains too much of what she didn't have growing up. It's frustrating.
    Another point of frustration has nothing to do with Nora Roberts and everything to do with the narrator. I live in the south, have always lived in the south, and we do not have accents like this woman employs. The hero of the story sounded like a pompous dandy, not a southern good ole boy that you'd want to have an affair with. We do NOT sound like that down here in the land of Dixie. The entire book, read by this narrator and combined with Nora's lack of compelling style, makes it seem like a really bad episode of "Dallas".

    "I couldn't finish it"
    What would have made Tribute better?

    Anything


    What could Nora Roberts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    It was boring.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Jennifer Van Dyck?

    Someone who talks normally. It's like she's reading to a child.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Tribute?

    All the repetitive ones.


    Any additional comments?

    I really like some of Nora Roberts books. Black Hills, The Search, and The Collector were all good ones but I just gave up on this one halfway through.

    "Cilla was a character you could relate to"

    Loved the way Nora Roberts used the artist talent of the male lead to strengthen the relationship with Cilla , so many clever references and the comic book twist was enjoyable.

    "Great listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Tribute the most enjoyable?

    Great listen. Well presented. Enjoyed from start to finish


    What does Jennifer Van Dyck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Have read the book. Bought so I could listen whilst travelling. Good emotion with the narrating. Sometimes listening can heighten the impact of reading

    "Totally Enjoyed"
    Would you listen to Tribute again? Why?

    yes, I'll listen to this again, mostly because of Ford. Loved the graphic novel aspect. Very enjoyable.


    Have you listened to any of Jennifer Van Dyck’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I'm glad that I did not let the poor reviews of this narrator stop my from giving this a listen. I had NO problem with her as a narrator.
