The performance by the narrator was so poor that it ruined the book for me on audible.
Love his strong women characters that overcome adversity.
I think the poor performance made it hard to connect with the book.
Many unexpected turns, although nearer the end one can guess the ending. I didn't like the performance. The reader's voice is unnerving.
Oberall this is a correct thriller that you listen to and forget, but this is quite relaxing...
"Good book?...Not so much!"
Half way through this book and am not impressed. It is, so far, too much like "If Tomorrow Comes" . The narrator is worse than bad which makes it annoying to listen to. I hope that the second half speeds up and is more "gripping". I'll write another review when I have finished the second half.
Yes, if he/she likes the Sydney Sheldon's type of mystery stories. I have enjoyed the story, and the final comes rather unexpected.
Reminds "If tomorrow comes", the same idea of justice and vengeance.
The narrator does not appeal to me at all, poor performance, often sounds hysterica. For me, Angela Dawe or Fred Stella are just perfect.
Gace's meeting Lenny in Madagascar!
Not as good as Sydney Sheldon, but pretty enjoyable. Don't try it if you are not inclined to that sort of literature.
