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.
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????
