What disappointed you about Come Lie with Me?
This book seem to use all the clichés in one book. Beautiful strong woman, handsome bully of a man, strong woman turns in to a crybaby and everybody lives happily ever after. What a waste
What could Linda Howard have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Since this is an old book I can't say she needs a new approach, because obviously she has gotten more enjoyable to listen to over the years. I will not listen to any old books again, they are just too painful.
How could the performance have been better?
Have listen to this narrator before, but seemed this time she just mutilated the men voices.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Disappointment yes, frustration that I wasted time on the same old same old. Female is tough and able to deal with a difficult man and then turns in to an insecure whiny woman. What is up with that?
