Publisher's Summary

The Dream
She is 20, beautiful, dirt-poor, and hoping for a better life for her infant daughter when LuAnn Tyler is offered the gift of a lifetime, a $100 million lottery jackpot. All she has to do is change her identity and leave the U.S. forever.
The Killer
It's an offer she dares to refuse...until violence forces her hand and thrusts her into a harrowing game of high-stakes, big-money subterfuge. It's a price she won't fully pay...until she does the unthinkable and breaks the promise that made her rich.
The Winner
For if LuAnn Tyler comes home, she will be pitted against the deadliest contestant of all: the chameleonlike financial mastermind who changed her life. And who can take it away at will...

Another winner

Would you consider the audio edition of The Winner to be better than the print version?

I prefer David Baldacci's books in audio rather than print.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Charlie. I liked the role he played in the story.

Did Frances Cassidy do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Her voice was irritating to me. It has a built in sneer. I would have preferred a different narrator. Her voice is pitched rather low and that meant that neither the men's voices nor the women's voices rang true.

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

This book was not one which incites extreme emotion. Rather it is a story to entertain. Baldacci spins a good tale and always brings up an interesting idea. The idea that lotteries could be rigged is an intriguing one.

Any additional comments?

Really, the narrator makes things sink or swim. This book would have been much sweeter for me with a different narrator. I will try to avoid this particular narrator.

This was the worst narration I have ever heard!

Would you try another book from David Baldacci and/or Frances Cassidy?

I will never listen to Frances Cassidy. I listen to MANY audiobooks and have never had a negative reaction. She has a strange accent on vowels, annoying pauses, and stresses of certain words. It was absolutely painful to listen to her. I only continued because the story was reasonably interesting, but the narration made it a nightmare and a total waste of my time.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Eh

Would you be willing to try another one of Frances Cassidy’s performances?

NEVER!

Was The Winner worth the listening time?

NO

great book, great story.

I really enjoyed the story but would have preferred a different narrator. it had the sound of a romance novel, which it clearly isn't meant to be
