Sally Edwards is the only realtor in the sleepy Hamptons town of Bayville, New York. Business is slow, and Sally is beginning to wonder if she will be able to make ends meet, when she receives an offer that seems to solve all of her problems. Her little company is bought out by Millennium 3, a large, multi-national conglomerate that has a mysterious history. Executives from Millennium 3 take over her office, and Sally is charged with the responsibility of purchasing as many homes in the community as possible.
As more and more homes are purchased, the residents of Bayville become suspicious of the new company's intentions. Sally is caught in the crossfire as the townspeople resist the purchase of their homes, and Millennium 3 increases their pressure tactics to purchase more property. Many residents - including Sally - begin to fear that Millennium 3 is trying to take over more than just the property of Bayville.
If you could sum up The Village Buyers in three words, what would they be?
Would you be willing to try another book from Arthur Herzog III? Why or why not?
Yes, I have actually been rather taken by his stories now,and have listened to a couple since my initial exposure. Very creative, tends toward the verbose at times, but very entertaining.
Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Weitzel’s performances?
OK here is my beef. Very inconsistent, with far too many back ground noises ( page turning? people talking ? ) and odd editing. Unfortunately this is not even a decent performance.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Not really, but it did enjoin me to look for more from this author.
Any additional comments?
The characters were well drawn, and the story did have some unique twists and turns. It's a good book on balance, but the performance is so uneven that it impairs ( to some degree at least ) the overall enjoyment.
