GOOD SHORT STORY

Enjoyed this audio. Easy story to follow and characters good. Not over the top with sex but enough and in good taste. Narrator done a great job.

Nora's Sets Stage for J.D. Robb

If you could sum up A World Apart in three words, what would they be?

Fun, Sweet, and Tender. If you are a classic fan of author, then this is a must. Beware it is short, but great. Great for the 50% sale

What other book might you compare A World Apart to and why?

Ms Roberts can pull together a quick story as she can be the master of great descriptive words. You can see how she gathers material for the great J.D.Robb series. This is just one of a few books that must have given her the idea.

What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I buy as many of Ms Dawe's reads as possible, and when paired with Nora, well that's an auto buy.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved all the moments when 21st century things were in play i.e.: baseball and pie called Pizza.

Any additional comments?

If you love long stories, this is not one of them. I sometimes am in the mood for a great short story.

ANOTHER WORLD/PARALLEL

I have listened to Nora Roberts before, but this one surprised me, with another world and demons and then gong to earth. I liked it, but it did surprise me.

Nora Roberts - A World Apart

Where does A World Apart rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Out of a 10 overall I would say that I would give it a 7. It is not near long enough - I could have read more to keep the story going.

What other book might you compare A World Apart to and why?

It is very different from the other books Nora Roberts write. But is very good.

Waste of my $10 - You're better than this Nora!!

Would you try another book from Nora Roberts and/or Angela Dawe?

Yes. All her other books are awesome!

What do you think your next listen will be?

Listened to Witness. Gripping storyline.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Very well

What character would you cut from A World Apart?

Its a pathetic book!

A Brilliant Bodice Ripper!!

Wonderful escapism.........just what I expected from Nora Roberts. A splendid story of a feisty independent woman warrior from another world; thrust into present day New York and the arms of a rather tasty PI. Of course the inevitable happens and they rid both their worlds of nasties while falling madly in love. Very convincing with a good twist in the understanding and misunderstandings of their worlds.
Would recommend this to anyone who wants to be entertained.
