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.
I enjoyed the book and love the show. However, the narrator was dry and boring. They should have had a female narrator like in the Women's Murder Club Series.
The story itself was pretty much what I expected from a book "written" by a character from a TV show. Light entertainment. The narrator had a very small range of voices, so it was often difficult to tell which character was speaking - even if the character was male or female.
This book was no where as good as the television series. It was boring and I only made it about 2 hours into it before I stopped listening because I couldn't handle it anymore. The characters were boring and narration was dull. Don't bother getting this book.
Seriously, I can see making the mistake of hiring a bad narrator once, but twice??? Why does Johnny Heller narrate anything? The tv show is fun, so I was looking forward to this even though I didn't expect much from the story. But the narrator made it unbearable. I can't even finish. Nikki Heat, the presumably hot young female detective sounds like a 60-year old smoker. And why does the leading man, the leading woman, and the narrator all have exactly the same voice????
Great story, fun to listen to on a trip. The narraitor could have been better. The story was good.
Sorry, couldn't continue with this one...no interest. Lost train of thought with this one. Hope the next is better
I can't tell if the book is good or not. The dramatic whisper of the narrator was so irritating to me that I can't stand to listen to it. I don't know why he couldn't use a normal tone of voice. From what I could listen to, the storyline seemed good and the characters were likable. I think this will be a book I would rather read than listen to.
