Intelligent writing Layered with complex emotion
Where does The Taking rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's very good. Traci Robinson is fearless with her characters, taking them to dark places both physically and emotionally and with such good characterisation that it's a very intimate picture you get for each of the main characters. Great horror and suspense comes from placing characters you relate to in intense situations.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Taking?
We’re reminded throughout the book that nothing is as it seems. Horror, jealousy, and greed taint the actions of our characters. It's very good.
Have you listened to any of Maria Marquis’s other performances? How does this one compare?
No but I really enjoyed it. Maria brings this very visual and well written book to life. Very good narration.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
As you get closer to the end it gets harder to put down. The reading is colorful and allows you to envision the characters and surroundings. A very engaging book.
