When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
Sandra Brown is one of my favorite authors, I love her romances because they mix her amazing ability to create mystery with sexual relationships. Fat Tuesday is not what I would call a romance. There is one real love scene and it is at the end of the book. However, the mystery is worthy of the Sandra Brown name. It does get a little slow from the middle to the last 3/4 of the book but the ending is filled with twists and turns. I enjoyed listening to the story but, I don't think it will be one that I listen to multiple times such as her books Envy or Breath of Scandal.
Thanks for getting the unabridged version. It is SO much better than the abridged. Mr. Garrett was the perfect narrator.
I love books!
I very much enjoyed Sandra Brown's "Envy". It seems like she has written quite a few books and received many good reviews so I figured I would Give "Fat Tuesday" a try. It is way over dramatized, predictable and the language is weird. I think this book is suppose to be a steamy/thriller mystery but with sentences like "men that are ravenous don't eat neatly" it is far from it. Seriously I can not imagine anyone talking like that. To me the book was so bad that I thought it was kind of funny. I ended up listening to it in 2X the speed and I think it would be better if I could have listened to it in speed 3 or 4. I did finish the book on the other reviewers recommendation but all in all not so good and it's a definite thumbs down from me
The voices of the characters help you create an image of them, better than reading alone would.
The most memorable was the ending, it had a twist I had not seen comming, it scared me.
My favorite scene was when to escape he had to punch his friend in the bait shop, it was very funny.
The book mad me laugh a lot, I did not cry, but I did get very upset and nervous when I wasn't sure what was going to happen.
An abridged version of this would be terrific. I found myself thinking "get on with it" or "who cares" so often in this book that it really dulled the enjoyment of it.
at the top. I was hooked from the beginning
I really can't compare it to anything. It's a great book, the story gets you from the beginning and keep you interested. The ending is something you don't see coming ang doesn't let you down.
This is the first I've heard of his. He nailed every accent.
I hated myself for enjoying this but if you want a lightweight read that does not require a lot of your attention while you shop or clean on the weekends, then this book is for you. The characters are cut-out but the plot moves rapidly if not somewhat improbably. And you learn a little about life in the Louisiana swamps.
Another Great, Sandra.
I love Brown's combination of suspense, romance, and happy endings.
Another great story from N'Oleans by Sandra Brown!
I love Sandra Brown. The book gives us romance and mystery with memorable characters.
Jack Garrett's narration was wonderful.
Better than average, but not my favourite
Can't spoil the ending......
I found the starting point for the relationship between Burke and Remi too hard to swallow, whilst I was waiting for them to get together, I kept thinking how totally unrealistic it was.
