Apple Girl in ATL
Well, there's always a theme to these books. After some 30 books, though, a theme would be necessary for any of us to keep them all straight!
This one is centered around religion, faith, and the church. The plot turns out to be a bit TOO convoluted for my taste. (Don't worry - no spoilers here!) One of the things I have always loved about this series is that, with the exception of a few futuristic devices, and the sheer volume of drama that befalls our heroine, it's 100% believeable!
But in the end our plot, plan, and motive tuns out to be extremely intricate and somewhat forced, really. Generally speaking, people just aren't that complicated! And their motives are usually less so.
Didin't stop me from squeezing in every minute I could to finish it, though...
I get so excited sometimes about writing a review..good or bad...that why sometimes I misspell words..lol..
I love the Eve Dallas series of books but this one wasn't that good. I found myself stopping and listening to other books I have, finishing them and coming back. I never did that with any of hte other books I read by JD Robb. This one was a little boring. I was disappointed!
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
Love having someone read me a story. Fires in the hearth, rain on the roof, sunny days and surf. Good friends, good food and J S Bach.
I did listen.It took 5 times to get through the first chapter. My mind kept going somewhere else.
There is no way I want to learn if the murders are connected. I can and have read the silly 'penny' westerns.This can not even rank with those. An R Hill or I Rankin will give you a good story. For me this was rubbish. Starting to read from the last page of a dictionary would be far more interesting.
The series has not let me down yet! This is humorous and sardonic at the same time. A great read and even better listen.
i love this series of books...well written, well told, but gee I wish Peabody and her boyfriend would get voice transplants!!!!!!!!!! they grate terribly on my nerves!
Horrible overacting (overreading?) by Susan Ericksen. The book itself was probably okay, but I couldn't continue to listen after the first few hours. The exaggerated voicing drove me away.
This is the worst book I have ever heard. The characters are unbelieveable, the dialogue too cute for words, the "future" technology is silly, and the plot is hackneyed and the gratuitous sex scenes made me want to vomit.Poorly written, poorly executed - Stay away from this one - a complete waste of time and money.
I think the book was probably better than it seemed, but the reader is so atrocious that it is nearly impossible to enjoy it. Characters come off as charicatures or just plain stupid. Worst reading ever to date ... and that's a lot of books.
The main character, Det. Eve Dallas, is crude, vulgar, and unsympathetic. I couldn't even listen to the whole thing. It's formulaic and just uninteresting.
