I love the Prey series and have listened to almost all of them. I haven't heard Invisible Prey which maybe would have alerted me to this narrator. His narration is great, Lucas' voice is great but why would every woman in the story sound like a whiney dingbat? I think Sandford writes strong female characters and even our buddy, Dell, sounded like a whiney dope. I would recommend reading this one yourself. Great story as they always are, the narrator missed the boat.
Not really money well spent. The story is good, but the narrator reads the female villain in a horrible whiny nasal valley girl tone that was annoying at first but by the midway mark made me grit my teeth. I began to put on fast speed during her scenes. Totally ruined all suspense and interest in her as a character.
The female villain and her revelation should have been (and was in the paperback) but moment/impact ruined by terrible narration of her voice.
The female villains voice!! All other woman and all other books by this narrator are fine, just seems to be this book and this character. Why why why he read her like he did is beyond me.
I think the whole Prey and Virgil Flowers series would make a good tv show.
All the Prey books are great and I live them all. The narrator does a really great job on all other books and all other characters. The reading of this book was just a little off for some reason.
Ok. Let's get real.
Yes, the narration runs hot & cold, just like all the other prey books. However, in this book, he narrator has turned 'the fairy' character into Tangina in Poltergeist. I kept waiting for her (him) to say "go to the light".
The story is totally over cooked. There are far too many characters to even remotely follow. Less than halfway through, I gave up on trying to keep track of who was who. And since all the voices were basically the same, it's easy to not care.
I've listened to all the Prey books that audible offers in chronological order and this is the weakest, by far. Had I not already prepurchased more of the series, this would have been my last one.
Loved every minute.
Can't imagine reading one of these when it's much better to listen to Richard Ferrone!
One of the voices was really, really annoying! Luckily the voice was not enough to ruin the experience. Other than that it was a great book and performance.
I really felt that the author was going through his paces with this one. But it may be that what made it less than enjoyable was one of the voices the narrator used. It was just annoying.
dad, husband, just a guy
Good double plot which holds interest.
better than most Sanford books.
This was hard one to do given the plot. But issues...
This was a pretty decent plot but poor Richard Ferrone should never try a "valley girl" voice if that character has more than 3 lines. I read the other reviews and thought maybe they were exaggerated. They weren't! He has a great voice for male characters and the female voices are usually adequate but that Fairy voice was bad..
