Nora is one of the VERY best writers I've read, that said, this book wasn't the best, kinda more dark then I like, but, nevertheless, an enjoyable listen!! And as always, Susan's performance is excellant!! The love story between Eve & Roarke, good as always, but just a little too corny at the end, won't say more than that...but that's just my opinion. If you know these books, then you must read this one!! Someone new to Eve & Roarke living in the year 2060 should really start at the begininng. Just saying....
Tell us about yourself! I have always ben an avid reader, but my eyesight isn't what it used to be. The iPod and audible been a blessing.
This was the first of "In Death" stories I read. I was looking for something that was a little different from the ordinary. We were embarking on a long car trip and I get really board when I'm not driving. I was so engrossed in this story I had to finish listening to it that night. I tried a couple of other mysteries during our visit but it wasn't quite doing it for me. So I went back and started Kindred in Death the second time.
I think Survivor in Death although quite a different storyline had a lot of the angst that made Kindred In Death so gripping.
In Kindred in Death it was when they finally got the culpert in the box and explained his situation to him. Then the finally got "Daddy Dearest". Well Done! In Survivor in Death it was the perfect way to start the healing of a young girl without letting her forget the parents that loved her.
I can honestly say that in the last 20 or so books in the "In Death" series there was never a scene in any of the books that didn't move me.
I my humble opinion It would be so refreshing to have our prime time networks ditch the remakes of old, old shows (Hawaii Five 0 and Dallas etc) and have an IN Death series of their own with,god forbid, not changing one character or one line.
The story was entertaining. Having said that, it was also pretty graphic and slightly icky when going over the description of the victim. The narration was great as usual.
Yes because the narrator, Susan Ericksen truly brings all the charters to life for me. I've listened to all the
I don't think I can pick just one... she does them all so very well, I don't have just one favorite.
I find mind self sounding like a broken record but I can't say it enough I love this series. I only tuned in to the 1st book in the summer of 2010 and I have now almost finshed the series and will be anxiously awaiting the next book. This was another stand alone absolutley sad and touching. The story and narration make you feel as if this is really happeing and you could turn on your local news and see it. JD Robb really knows how to capture and hold. Thank you for for such a great stories. Some are gruesome and hard to imagine but in the same sense allow you to imagine the pain that a family endures when such horrible things happen. It's really hard and they even make you cry right along with the characters.
The ending epilogue with Louise and Charles gave this story a bittersweet ending.
BIG KUDOS AGAIN Susan Erikson for bringing the in Death Stories to life. Please dont ever stop doing the narartion.
I love the series and wish that Susan Erickson would read all the books that I buy. She does so well, I forget that I am being read to. The characters become real like old friends after so long.Keep up the good work. I get so excited when I see that my friends have come for a visit.
First of all, I really get annoyed reading the negative reviews below from folks who ONLY listened to the first few hours of the book. Secondly, this is Book 29 of a series. My advise with any series is you should start from the beginning and get to know the characters, and here it is especially essential because you'll understand why the narrator chooses the voice for each player...they really fit.
If you have enjoyed any of the In Death Series, you'll enjoy this one as well. How Roberts continues to find new angles on murders for Eve to solve makes each book in the series fresh and #29 is no different.
I would also like to add to those reviewers who don't like Peabody's voice; from about Book 13 to 16, Erickson throttled back on most of the characters strong intonation and gave Peabody a voice closer to Eve's. For me, who started with Book 1 Naked in Death, it was disappointing and was thrilled that the narrator brought them back full strength in Book 17 and has continued ever since.
