I loved reading for years, but now I've become so attached to Audible I'm finding reading tedious. Is that a bad thing?....
Will Patton is as eloquent and captivating as Burke's colorful and passionate writing style. It is a tragic story, with so many unusual and ingenious characters, the suspense seems overshadowed.
This is a book I did not want to end. I love Will Patton's work in the movies,and I am more impressed with his reading skills.
This is a really great mystery featuring one of the best detective characters in the genre and by one of the best writers of our time. I just dont like the reading by Cariou. He makes it read like a work of nonfiction with a "just the facts" demeanor.
Nevertheless the story is excellent. I am never dissapointed with any of Connolley's novels.
Will Patton is absolutely the best reader I have encountered. Burke is highly descriptive and employs memorable, believable characters, always with severe flaws. This was a really fun book to listen to...
I'm a Reginald Hill fan and especially enjoy Pascoe and Dalziel but holy guacamole !! Brain Glover is not the right narrator!!! This is the second time I've bit on a R. Hill book only to find a poor performance. Note to self: Pay attention to name of narrator!!
Frankly, I don't know if this is a good story or not -- I could barely understand most of it and could feel my ears clamping down the rest of the time.
