Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors. I have read all of the J.D. Robb series and they are wonderful reading. The characters are dynamic and the stories move with clarity. Dolores
I have all of these books and love them every one. The main family of characters are great and I feel that I am a part of their lives. I would love to have the ability to be able to create a world all on its own. JD Robb/Nora Roberts always make me feel the emotions of the characters. The twist of the plot is always there and surprising. Ready for more.
Love books, preferably romance and suspense. Typically read/listen to 3-5 a week.
I love the Eve Dallas Series. The person that wrote the other review must not be a fan of the series. I could listen to a book on the Death Series once a week. I couldn't wait for this book to come out. I was upset it took so long. Once I caught up and listened or read them all I was lost waiting for another book. I must admit either you like the Death series or you don't. I think some people think it should be more futuristic or sci-fi; it is very balance and very entertaining. I have thoroughly enjoyed each book. This book did not disappoint me. I enjoyed every minute. I am impatiently waiting for Missing in Death later this month and hope she has two more to come out in December.
Can't get enough of this series! Love the characters, the stories and listening to Susan Ericksen. Can't wait for the next one to be released.
I like this series. I am not a Nora Roberts fan, or a fan of romance novels in general, but the repartee between the characters in this J.D. Robb series has hooked me somehow. That kind of interplay is, well, not absent, but too rare in this novel; there is some redundancy in the discovery of clues (where was the editor?); and the whole is just lackluster. OK for $10, but I'm glad I didn't pay fulll price.
As in all of the In Death books, the action begins in the first pages and continues right through the last. I recommend all of the In Death books. In Kindred, the real tension builds waiting to see how many victims Eve can save. The challenge is too see how long the reader can stretch out the reading so that it will last more than one day.
That Jaime comes back in this book bringing his wonderful computer skills to help the electronics squad assist Eve and her detectives catch the serial killer as fast as possible.
Susan Ericksen uses distinctive voices for all of her characters. She made me laugh while narrating the Judge's mother's lines. J. D. Robb's narration makes me chuckle, but somehow, Erickson's reading increases the humor, or tension, or sorrow.
Yes, I wanted to figure out who was the killer and why. But, contrarily, I hate to finish a book that I have anticipated for months, in only one day. If I am lucky, I can stretch it out for two days. Any time I listen to a new In Death book, I have to go back and listen to a couple older ones again. Which is why I re-read Kindred. I re-listened to it after listening to Festive In Death.
I would be very disappointed if they ever change the Narrator from Susan Ericksen. Her interpretations of the characters' accents and idioms really bring them to life.
Susan Erickson did a wonderful performance as usual and overall story line was great, what I've come to expect from this series. However, this is a fictional murder series and I found it getting waaaay too graphic in the description of the torture and murder of the main victim. Hopefully, the following books have this scaled back a bit. Otherwise, enjoyed it as alway.s
