Publisher's Summary

As a sniper with the elite Massachusetts State Police SWAT Team, Bobby Dodge saved a woman and her young son by shooting her armed husband. But vicious rumors begin to circulate the next morning when Bobby loses his gun and his privileges. It turns out the dead man was the son of a prominent Boston judge and had accused his wife of poisoning their son. Facing awkward stares and a crippling wrongful death lawsuit, Bobby begins his own investigation into the fateful shooting, and a fight to reclaim the life he holds dear. As the trail takes him into a twisted minefield of sordid wealth and family secrets, he is learning that nothing, and no one, is what they seem.

    "If you love Lisa Gardner do not listen"
    What did you like best about Alone? What did you like least?

    I think Lisa had a good idea for her plot but her narrator choice was terrible! Made me diss-like Bobby Dodge.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The Narrator Also Bobby was not written in a very masculine form. I think Lisa might be better at writing her female characters


    Was Alone worth the listening time?

    no, saddly

    Story
    "OH! The Voice!!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book itself was a another good one by Lisa, however the narration was absolutely terrible! If you continue to have men as the main focus maybe have a man do the voice! Her attempt of a mans voice was horrible and made me turn the audio off several times.
    I suggest you READ the book don't listen it it, it ruined it for me.


    What didn’t you like about Anna Fields’s performance?

    Terrible, use a man to do a mans voice and the accents were so off it was a horrible performance.

    "Terrible Narration"

    Book was actually not bad but thus is without a doubt the worst performance I've ever heard. The accents were comical and switching between sexes was just painful. Hopefully the person has gotten better over time.

    Story
    "Anna Fields in over her head."

    This is another hit for Lisa Gardner! With so many twists and turns, she will keep you guessing right up to the end...and beyond.
    Anna Fields however, was in over her head. Her portrayal of Bobby Dodge and some of the other male characters were horrible. Bobby Dodge sounded like a dime store thug. He sounded nothing like intelligent and gentle professional that he was supposed to be. The voice Ms. Fields chose for him reminded me of some uneducated petty thief or maybe a member of a mob family. He did not sound at all like a respected professional sniper for the state police.
    This was very disappointing. The only thing that made listening worthwhile was the story itself. It was just too good to stop listening based on the poor job by the reader. I hope in the future novels someone better is chosen to represent Lisa Gardner's books. I still recommend this book regardless.

    Story
    "multifaceted, thought provoking & different"

    narrator did a fantastic job, especially with the new England & southern dialects. masterful & organized. amazing how characters can endure so much hurt & life complications artfully carved out in the pages of the story and still function in the world. this fictional tale could easily be factual in so many lives under different yet still complicated circumstances. the sense of this reality was often apparent in the writing. that itself is what makes a good suspense, thriller, crime novel what it is. great first book in the series, will continue on .

    Story
    "DIFFICULT to get into it.But Oddly CAPTIVATING!"
    Would you try another book from Lisa Gardner and/or Anna Fields?

    Yes I think I would. The writer is very good but the narrator is hard to get into. Her voice at times is just so boring.


    What other book might you compare Alone to and why?

    Any of the murder mysteries.


    What three words best describe Anna Fields’s voice?

    Monotone at times - clear - and oddly captivating.


    Could you see Alone being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    It took me awhile to get into this book. It was dry in the beginning but the last 3 hours of the book, things got going and was BAM, BAM, BAM until the end.

    "really far fetched"

    The narrator is terrible, the story so unbelievable, and it just seems to dragsm on and on. The author's books have been better.
