Unforgettable by Meryl Sawyer revolves Greg Braxton a volunteer with the Maui search and rescue team. Greg is training his greyhound, Dodger, under the extreme conditions of a lightning storm. When Dodger finds an unconscious woman in a car at the bottom of a cliff. When she awakens, she doesn’t know who she is or what she was doing stranded in the middle of a raging storm so Greg nicknames her “Lucky”. As they try to figure out “Lucky’s” real name. She finds she might not be so lucky after-all.
I’ve seen Meryl Sawyer’s books around before but have never really read any of them. They never seemed very interesting to me mostly because I have a really bad habit of judging a book by it’s cover. I’m really glad I didn’t do that with this audiobook. I really enjoyed this book. I’ve found that Meryl Sawyer has a great writing style. This book Unforgettable has a very intricate plot line. It was well written and even let you hear from the point of view of the villains from time to time. While still keeping their identity hidden until the right moment. Very nicely done without ruining or distorting the plot or flow of the story.
Erin Bennett does an amazing job as the narrator for this book. Erin made each character distinctive and interesting. I found that at times I would forget it was only one person doing the narration for this audiobook. Erin Bennett has a nice voice that is great for audiobooks.
Now for the production. I am and avid fan of Dreamscape Media’s audiobooks and usually I can tell right away that the audiobook was produced by Dreamscape. This one I’m happy to say had me stumped. I honestly didn’t know which production house produced this audiobook until I took a look at the end. The production was excellent as always. Just the right tempo and rhythm. Great for listening to while relaxing.
Now for the big question. Would I recommend this book? That is honestly a hard question for me concerning this book. My answer would have to be Yes & No. Now before any one gets upset with my fence straddling answer let me explain why I came to that conclusion and why only 3.0 stars. When I’ve just been raving about this book. If you have read any of my previous reviews you will notice I speak a lot about listening to the audiobooks in public. This book got points taken off because just in the first part of the book it was very suggestive. So no good for public listening. Yes I will recommend this book. It is a great book but not to anyone that wants to listen to this book in a public area or around children.
