Roar Audiobook

Roar

Regular Price:$0.00

Publisher's Summary

A short story for fans of Jodi Picoult and Anita Shreve. Step into the fragile domestic world of Roar and discover the unforgettable voice of Nicole Trope, best-selling author of The Secrets in Silence, Three Hours Late and The Boy Under the Table.

The baby sleeps peacefully, filled with milk and contentment. The man on the bed breathes his way into the darkness, filled with rage. Was there ever really a choice?

From the queen of searing family drama and suspense comes a short story about the fierce bonds between mother and child, the things we sacrifice to protect the ones we love and the desperate choices we make when there's nowhere left to run.

    "A turbulent marriage"

    I really like the realism of this story, to which many mothers would identify.

    It is suspenseful and beautifully narrated by Susan Stratford.

    This tale would appeal to anyone, especially those facing marriage difficulties, but few would take the drastic step of this young mother.

    "Wow!"
    What does Susan Strafford bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her narration adds to the tension of the story. Her well-paced narration ups the suspense.


    Who was the most memorable character of Roar and why?

    The mother


    Any additional comments?

    Wow! This very short audio book was crammed with attention grabbing detail and tension. The story set my nerves on end, and the narration ramped that up several notches in it's delivery. It was perfect in almost every way.

    My one question concerns the use of insulin. The protagonist goes to her mother's every day to inject her with insulin, so her mother won't have to do it herself. There's no mention of blood testing. I wonder whether it's a common practice to do a once a day insulin injection like that? Isn't it supposed to be dosed based on blood glucose levels, amount of food eaten, and activity level? Other than that one small thing, I think this was a great book and would recommend it to those who love mystery, thriller, and suspense books.

    Highly recommended!

    I wasn't blown away by this, but not sorry that I purchased as a daily deal.
