Nora Roberts' Audio Books Rock

Listening to books on disc is my new passion. The voice quality of the readers is wonderful. I listen most of the time in my car as I drive. This offers a great alternative to radio and cd listening. Brilliance Audio does a quality job of pacing and pausing as the series of discs complete. I recommend the unabridged versions rather than the abridged. The books are intriguing and wonderful to listen too. If you enjoy reading Nora Roberts, you will most definitely enjoy listening to her stories read aloud.

Not one of Nora's best

I love Nora Roberts! She is predictably good at writing thrilling romance novels, some novels are more thrilling than others though and during the mid 2000s she hit a bit of a slump. High Noon was not her greatest effort. It was not a page turner, at least not in a good way. I kept turning pages knowing with each page I turned I was closer to the end of this story. It was too long with too little thrill and to be blunt too little passion. One of Roberts' greatest strengths is that she is able to consistently create characters with amazing chemistry, these characters just didn't have it. This will not dissuade me from reading more of her books. She was more than due for a dud.

    Not awful but not particularly good either

    I won't review the plot as it's already been done. However, the plot is the biggest problem I have because it was weak at best, nonexistent at worst. Most of the book was about Ben, Phoebe and her family with some hostage rescue taking place. It was towards the end that it came out she was being stalked by a killer, not who had harassed her off and on throughout the book. Also, all the people being in the same place, and not knowing each other, at the end of book was totally unbelievable. Duncan was too good to be true. Rich, handsome, athletic, smart honest, brave, etc. And loving Phoebe's dysfunctional family (hers tops mine in the dysfunctional which is hard to believe) and wanting to take on their problems from the beginning isn't very realistic.

    Sorry Nora...not one of your best

    I have read and loved Nora Roberts books for some time now, but I felt like this one was not one of her best. It was a good book, but I didn't care for how quickly it ended and that the climax of the book was just pages before the end. The characters were really good too, but I wish that we could have found out more about things that happened with some of the other characters and the store, however, that may be Nora keeping us hanging on for a second book to follow.

    A lot like Blue Smoke

    This was a good book and Nora Roberts is a great writer. Too many of the details in this book were similar to Blue Smoke the stalker, her mentor ect...
