Five Year Sentence Pb (Abacus Books)

A Five Year Sentence - Bernice Rubens 2.5 out of 5 StarsThis wasn’t a bad story and I actually ended up liking it better than I expected. It was sweet, occasionally amusing, and for something that was a short romance and nothing else, it was surprising lacking in trite. On the downside, as this was another one that I listened to instead of reading, the narrator was great for some of the voices, but many of his “female” voices grated on my nerves, pulling me out of the story. The real problem for me was that the characters were kind of forgettable, though I think that is in large part due to the brief nature of the story. I think to make the characters vibrant, the story would have had to have been longer, but sadly making the story longer would have made it too long to be enjoyable, at least not without more plot than what it had. In the end, I didn’t mind spending a few hours listening to it, but it won’t be one that I go back to or that stays with me in the long run.
