Scribd does this thing where after you’ve listened to a couple of book, they make all the other books you want to listen to “unavailable” until the day after your subscription renews. It’s annoying. Anyway, after listening to the Murderbot Diaries, all the scifi I planned to listen to was unavailble, but a couple of Nora Roberts’ books were available. Knowing that I would only be able to listen to one, I flipped a quarter and picked Angels Fall.
I read this one years ago and I remembered it as being fine. I couldn’t remember which character was the murderer and I remembered the main couple as being fairly entertaining. It was still fine. Once I remembered who the murderer was, a lot of the suspense went out of the story. Joyce Bean did a good job with the narration. The story is a thin for 14 hour, 45 minutes of narration.
It was a fine book when I read it the first time, and it’s fine this time.
Things I did while listening to this book –
- folded laundry
- did classwork for a social media class
- did social media work
- read and wrote emails
- took a nap
It was entertaining in that Nora Roberts way. But, Nora Roberts isn’t really my thing anymore. There’s a lot of “women are like this and men are like that” conversations. Reese, a survivor of a violent, traumatic event, is edging towards the prickly woman I’ve come to enjoy as a romance main character. Brody, a grumpy, abrasive writer is enertaining-ish, but very worried about the domesticity a woman might bring to his life.
It was the very definition of a three star read (or listen as the case might be).
