Disappointing

What would have made Rescue better?

This story was way too slow and I was hooked in by the characters at all.

What was most disappointing about Anita Shreve’s story?

If you are looking for entertainment like 'The Pilot's Wife' in this book, you will be sorely disappointed. I love 'The Pilot's Wife,' and rate it one of my all time favourites. The characters in 'Rescue' are blandly constructed and the storyline just never takes off. Webster, the central character, is flat and is difficult to connect with. Basically, it's a bit of a love story without the endearing characters.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Narrator was fine.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Rescue?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

Don't waste your credits or time.

Couldn't switch the 'off' button

Would you listen to Rescue again? Why?

I loved this book. It took me a couple of chapters to embrace the accents of the characters but I'm Australian! Once I was hooked I just wanted to listen to the whole book and had to strictly limit my listening time as I was on holidays and didn't want to finish too quickly!

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the characters and just thought the story was a bit different!

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

I thought the voice narration was irritating at first but after chapter 2 I really loved them!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It did make me cry

Any additional comments?

Would definitely recommend

Disappointing

I have enjoyed Anita Shreve's books but found this one to be predictable and with nothing new to say. It was not helped by a poor performance by the reader. She is unable to do male voices, so compensates but shouting whenever a male character is speaking.

A very addictive read.

This is a very good read, the story line a little pretictive but so endearing.
