If you like the Castle series, you'll appreciate the writing style (very Rick Castle-esque), and the mystery has meat to it. The Nikki Heat books are almost identical to how an episode would run on the TV show.
However, the narrator rushes through the entire story and has very little variability between voices or narrator, so it was often difficult to follow. I'll listen to more Richard Castle books, only if Johnny Heller isn't narrating them.
I like the character of Kate Beckett much more than Nikki Heat. Kat is more weiter & the chemistry between the two is way better.
I was disappointed with the lack of action in the story. Plus, the story was really in depth that I had problems completely following.
At times it was hard to tell what character he was performing because they all sounded a lot alike, especially Nikki & Rook.
I LOVE THE SHOW SO YES, YES, YES!!
The narration was so poor that i just cant. He read too fast and had no feel for the characters. He didn't even use different tones for their different voices. Rushed and monotone is how it comes off. It would have been much better read in book form than listened to.
Only if read by someone else
I flip-flop between business and fiction books to keep me grounded in reality while still keeping my childhood love of fantasy firmly intact.
It was a great listen, I think, because I'm a huge fan of the TV series. I had faces to attach to characters already. The only difficulty was assigning the names, which are different than the show, to the faces that I already have in my mind's eye.
Very entertaining, light listening. The book was unlike the tv series in many ways but still evoked images of the current tv characters. Even though it was different than the tv series it was not disappointing. The plot was not terribly complex but was interesting and easy to follow. I enjoyed the book very much and will definitely listen to more in the series.
No! I do not know if is the reader or if it just the story it self. But I do like the series.
Yes it has.
No I would not to me he has a monatone voice.
I would get rid of the whole book.
I purchased because I am a Castle viewer. Curiosity was my main motivation. I ended up enjoying it.
THE story is good, the character development was fair, he gave some what of an explanation as to who they were and the relationships. He held my interest, and it was easy for me to visualize, the characters from the TVs show into the rolls is each character.
I love the television show, Castle, and I enjoy suspenceful novels. This book, however, was painful to get through. In the beginning, I kept waiting for it to get better. After about the first hour, I just wanted it to end. I completed it only because I purchased it. My consolation is that I purchased it in one of the buy 2 get 1 free specials. Do not waste your money or credits.
