Reasonable plot, not riveting. Formula plot?
Can't believe this sold for $46.98 as a CD set (9 CDs, 10.5 hours unabridged). It was a good story, but we'd guess it was "formula". The emotions go up, then they go down, then up, then down... The romance is on, it's off, it's on, it's off... The undercurrent of people's motives, hidden secrets, etc. makes for entertainment, but it was sort of like watching a B movie, you maybe had nothing better to do, and REALLY, you KNOW how it will end. The reader (Johnny Heller) does a good job of differentiating between characters' dialog. Listened to this over several weeks in pieces while running errands. Maybe that's why we didn't appreciate it so much. One thing we had trouble with was Taylor's hang-up; we wondered how he held onto it for all those years, being the down-to-earth, practical sort of fellow that he was written up to be. Perhaps that sort of thing is hiding in MANY folks, we don't know, not sure we WANT to!Read full review
