“I am the wife to a wonderful man, the mom to two sweet doggie boys. I'm all about the dog stories fiction or non!
It was funny sarcastic, serious, suspensful! I loved it.
Andy of course. He was the funniest of all!
The way he reads the sarcasm is hillarious!
Not really but I really did enjoy it!
I dove into this series in the middle.. the characters are one dimensional, the author never leaves the "tell the story" side of writing, and while the humor is clever and I grinned at several places, the overall effect was average or a little below even for the mystery genre. Early and middle stories from Dick Francis and John Sandford and all of John D. MacDonald are vastly superior. Scott Turow is much more engaging. But if you want some "mind candy" this will get the job done.
probably not, most of them want much more moving writing
He sense of fun with the humor shows as always. He is a good reader
The story kept me interested and wanting more. I will look for more by this author.
Excellent performance. Easy to understand and nice inflections.
Yes, I wanted to stay in the car and keep listening to this book.
Absolutely! Don't you love it when you find a new author/series you like, and there are several books already published? I bought the first 2 in the Andy Carpenter series one at a time. The next three I purchased all at once. Excellent stories with an excellent narrator! Interesting characters, fresh story lines, and a healthy dose of humor. Great mystery and courtroom scenes and not unnecessarily graphic/sexual/profane. I download onto my Kindle and then listen to it over my car speakers. I find myself sitting in the car waiting for the chapter to end before I go in the house. Nice thing is my teen son will get in and ask me to catch him up on what he missed! Smart, funny, great court battles, and fast paced! I even bought one of the books so I could read it when I wasn't in the car to listen to it. :) I've never been compelled to write a review before, but this guy's good. As a past Patterson fan who gave up after several disappointments, I was so pleased to find this author!
Andy Carpenter (the main character) is my favorite. He's smart, funny, and has an easy self-deprecating sense of humor. I like that he comes across as a real person and not plastic/perfect/fearless/Greek God.
The narrator has also been my favorite. So good!
Don't hesitate to try this series. You won't be disappointed!

This is the most fun series. Love the characters and the snappy dialogue. Just be sure to start with the first book in the series--Open and Shut
The is the second book I've listened to in the series, and I will immediately buy another. I love the wry humour and actually laugh out loud at times. This is not great literature, but it is certainly entertainment.
I love the humour and the always great storyline. I look forward to all of his books and appreciate as a dog lover his stories.
I feel like he IS Andy Carpenter and David Rosenfelt all in one. He is just as much the reason why I enjoy this series as much as the writing. The way he delivers is perfect!
Got to listen!
The way the story was told, slowly painting the picture each characters history relating to the total package of the story. Not saying the story was slow at all. It was a wonderfully paced story.
Yes, but had to leave car to go into work...darn it!
Love this author. Not just a "dog" story. Much more involved in each characters past, present and future. It ended as I wanted it to, yet it didn't end as I wanted it to.
I really enjoy the Andy Carpenter series. Just the right amount of humor and mystery. I hope the author continues to add to the series.

I read a couple of Andy Carpenter novels and found them highly entertaining. This was no different. David Rosenfelt's books are enjoyable and are entertaining. I think my biggest complaint was the plethora of bad guys after one lawyer. Sometimes it gets a bit unbelievable. Since I had already read some of his other books, I also had an idea of what Andy should sound like. This narrator did not fit that bill; however, he was good nonetheless.
My recommendation is if you are looking for an easy read, this book will do nicely.
