Publisher's Summary

Born Without a Face...

Orphaned and severely deformed, from her earliest moments Sarah Sims has been kept hidden away in a secret CIA facility - until an unexpected discovery gives her an opportunity to make a life for herself at last.

Now Sarah has an ally, a long-lost aunt who has discovered her true identity. Aided by this brave psychologist, twenty-year-old Sarah must find the courage to confront the forces that have confined her for so long. And the strength to be reborn into a world she has never known.

A moving,engaging and well- told story

Would you consider the audio edition of The Face to be better than the print version?

I liked the character of Sarah and the way she helped me think about what life is like for people with serious disabilities.

What did you like best about this story?

Yes.

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

The character of Sarah and her relationship with her aunt provide the author with a vehicle for addressing some interesting issues "faced" by many people in our world today. Sarah is easy to relate to, so the issues do not come out in a heavy handed way.

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

I find this question hard to answer because I truly admire Holly Adams' work. I find her interesting to listen to and particularly enjoy the way she creates diverse characters through the way she uses her voice. I do not think I would have enjoyed this story so much if she had not been reading it.

Any additional comments?

This is worth listening to. The quality of the performance and the nature of the subject matter make it well worth your time.

Face it!

There were some pretty far fetched moments in the book, but overall, quite engaging. The book certainly held my attention, and I thought the narration was very well done. It was the kind of book that had me looking forward to being in the car to listen to the next installment. I'm afraid I thought the weakest segment of the book was the ending, but I won't reveal it.

I kept thinking I could tell where the book was going, but it would veer off somewhere else. I like that about a book.

Unusual suspenseful gem

I like most of Angela Hunts books (a few exceptions) This is a really good ,well researched novel about a girl born with Treacher-collins syndrome. (terrible facial malformations)
It sensitively deals with the struggle of a brilliant young girl ,isolated from the world for her entire life dealing with her handicap in a positive way. Suspense is provided by the fact that she works for the CIA as a computer analyst and gets caught up in international intrigue.
Great narration makes this book a winner.

Enjoyable

Would you listen to The Face again? Why?

Yes....I ALWAYS listen to books a couple or three times.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Enjoyed them all

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No...only because I don't EVER do that. It's a personal thing
