Ok. So I get the Cork and Joe Pickett probably shouldn't have the same narrator, but ... Really!? There are a LOT of excellent narrators out there that would have been a better fit. Cork may not be a spring chicken, but he's not a doddering old man either. and the female voices are just plain AWFUL. The fact that he was chosen to continue means I'm done with Cork. Damn shame. come on Joe Pickett! Help me with my Chandler withdrawals! oh - and my least favorite plot so far too.
Fine story, but why, oh why, did they change readers? I loved David Chandler's narration but his guy is very difficult to listen to. I now need to decide if I will listen to the next four books or just skip to book 12 which is a return to Chandler's narration. I love the books and characters but, oi vey... it was laborious listing to Mr Schirner read.
I loved learning about Henry's history and family.
Return to the services of David Chandler! It could have been better in almost every way, but Chandler is one of the best. Don't change horses mid-stream.
Good question... I'm not sure yet. I liked the story but it was painful to listen to.
Use David Chandler as a narrator. Have him go back and re-do the four books that Buck Schirner!
Tell us about yourself!
I loved this particular story where we get to see into Malou's younger years and how he came to be the man he is in the series. Very well thought out story that was extremely enjoyable to listen too!
The narrator could have spoken at a much slower speed as it was very difficult to follow.
A switch in narrator is always a hard thing to handle in the middle of a series, but this change was the worst I have seen. The new narrator is so different from the original that is totally changes the character of the book. My personal opinion of the new narrator is not good. I don't like his interpretation of any of the characters, and his voice is unappealing and a hard listen.
It would be easier to say what did I like, since there wasn't anything appealing at all.
yes. i listen to books to get through chores and workouts so, fortunately, the writing helps me get past the narrator.
yes. although I really wish they'd bring back the narrator they used for the start of the series.
The change in narration set me back to start, but the course of the story made me see the need for Buck's voicing. Krueger somehow manages to spin yet several more layers of complexity to an already multi-faceted Corc. As a series I trusted Krueger to make it worth my initial misgivings to keep all the characters whole. i wasn't disappointed, I was enthralled. Can't wait to read the next book.
Don't wait, go deeper.
