|Abridged Audio Version|
So far, this has been my favorite holiday themed read (or listen in this case) since the Ho-Ho-Ho Read-A-Thon began on November 6th. The abridgment for both books was well done, but the narration for both books was just okay... I think better narrators for both books could have been used instead of using Jennifer Beals & Carol Higgins Clark.
The storylines were flushed out pretty well and centered around Christmas. I liked that both stories contained some element of suspense to them. And I enjoyed most of the characters for the most part. Of course, the endings to both books were predictably happy ones! But I guess that's what one would expect for a holiday themed read, right?
The following is a book summary from the Barnes & Noble website:
TWO DELIGHTFUL AUDIOBOOKS FROM AMERICA'S QUEEN OF SUSPENSE
SILENT NIGHT read by Jennifer Beals
Written with warmth, yet set against a background of menacing suspense, Silent Night sings with the spirit of the season, celebrating the mysteries of faith renewed and faith rewarded that we honor every holiday season.
ALL THROUGH THE NIGHT read by Carol Higgins ClarkI'm giving The Night Collection: Silent Night & All Through the Night by Mary Higgins Clark a rating of 7 stars out of 10 stars!! Until my next post, happy reading!!
A desperate mother. Her missing child. A stolen chalice. Two of Mary Higgins Clark's most beloved characters, Alvirah, the lottery winner turned amateur sleuth, and her husband, Willy, are caught up in a Christmas mystery that calls on all of Alvirahs' deductive powers -- as well as Willy's world class common sense.
