It was boring.
Someone who talks normally. It's like she's reading to a child.
All the repetitive ones.
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.
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. Well presented. Enjoyed from start to finish
Have read the book. Bought so I could listen whilst travelling. Good emotion with the narrating. Sometimes listening can heighten the impact of reading
Say something about yourself!
yes, I'll listen to this again, mostly because of Ford. Loved the graphic novel aspect. Very enjoyable.
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.
I loved the way I immediately was able to picture the house in my head! The twists in the story.
The first time she invites him to her house for a beer.
I truly enjoyed this book. I adore her trilogies, and was hesitant to read a stand alone. However I was plesantly surpised. I enjoyed the characters, while the story was a trifle convaluted.
First of all, I have to say this narrator is just plain awful. I almost didn't want to continue because it was too painful to hear her read. Get better narrators Audible!!!!
To add to the point of how terrible she is, my ipod crashed and I had to reboot it, thereby losing my place in the book. It took forever to find where I was, because every stop I made, sounded exactly the same as the other areas. The narrator should listen to the narrator of Middlesex, that guy knew how to narrate! You knew exactly who was speaking, just by his tone and manner of speaking. This one terrible.
I used to be a Nora Roberts fan, but I think this will be the last book I buy. Way to predictable and it follows a formula she has for every book. I called the evil person right at the beginning. You shouldn't be able to do that. But I have read so many of her books, that now I know exactly who it is. Boring.
This book is OK. I agree with several others, that the home remodeling is pretty detailed, but that is what defines the main character. My biggest issue is with the narrator. Right from the start, the way the narrator spoke reminded me of someone. And then, wham it hit me...she speaks just like Captain Kirk (William Shatner) on Star Trek. She reads with fast bursts and long pauses. It's hard to get into the story, when you can't get over the voice.
