I am a fan of ABC's Castle, and listening to this book written by a character in a TV show is a lot of fun. The book is very similar to the storyline in the show, and it is keeping me interested.
Mostly. I kinda know what is coming based on experiences in the show, but then there's a twist.
Not at this time.
"Richard Castle" brings the wit and charm of the TV series to this book. Any an of the series should read this book just for the inside jokes that go with it.
At Chapter 6, I wish I could have fast forwarded through all the gore. But by the end of the first half of the book, at the download break, I chose not even to download the second half. And when driving in very rural northwest New Mexico, it takes a lot to make me prefer Sirius for the upcoming five hours. This book managed it at that point. It was as if the author had had small boxes of plot options, and chose at random. Chapter 6? Let's go with gore. Halfway point? How about a threat to Nikki's career, warranted or not.
Performance was really good, so no problems there. And yes, I've listened to him before.
At this point, Nikki.
I was so sad to drop it.
It's a light fun romp that you would expect from a book written by a TV character. What's most difficult is that the narrator doesn't do as well with making distinct voices, especially sometimes between the text of the book and the dialogue. Early on, it can be particularly difficult to follow when the speaker changes.
Still, a light few hours to pass the time with.
I love the show Castle but was slow to coming around to reading the book. I finally bit the bullet and started it, and i am glad I did. The book is really good and you can just picture the shows characters as the the ones in the book. It is a good book to read even if you have never seen the show Castle.
I love the Castle show and was excited to find out about these books. I finally got around to downloading them and I wish I did it sooner!
This book reads like a really good, long version of the show. You can imagine the TV characters with a twist.
I was a little disappointed Nathan Fillion wasn't reading these books because I kept wanting to hear Castle's voice. However, Johnny Heller must have hung out with Nathan because he would say and inflect very similar to the actor.
I loved the different voice and the personality shine throw for each one in this audio book.
If you love any type of cop or mystery genre, definitely download this book.
I'm an avid reader since childhood. I'm a retired science teacher, retired nuclear plant worker and grandmother of three. I love mysteries.
Since I love the TV series Castle, I had to check out this book. It was cute and very much as represented on TV. Certainly not great literature but still good fun!
I really like the Castle TV Show. So I tried this because it was a essentially a short listen. It was very good. While I like Scott Brick it is good to hear other narrators and Johnny Heller did a very good job especially conveying the sarcasm between the characters. About half way through I was pretty sure who did it, but it was great escapism.
