Not a good listen and story just so boring!
Shame as setting deserved a better story line!
A bit of a let down as the story didn't really go anywhere. Well narrated but overall the story was weak and unbelievable.
Where does The Island Hideaway rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Very high in the category of interesting novels with a background in Italy.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Eleanor because she is realistically interesting and a unique character.
What about Antonia Beamish’s performance did you like?
I liked the soft resonance of her voice. I liked that she did not "overact" the various voices when reading dialogue. She is talented.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Quite a few, actually. I liked Eleanor's initial encounter with Franny. I liked the scene on the hydropo boat over to Siciliy with Lewis. Moments with Natalie, the nymphet were thoroughly believable and well-characterized.
Any additional comments?
This book made me happy, engaged and not wanting it to end. I also greatly appreciated that the author did not "wrap it all up" with a traditional ending. It was a very good and happy-making read. The descriptions of the islands were priceless.
