I love all of the In Death. I loved this one also. The one thing I didn't like was Peabody's voice. I don't remember her voice sounding like this from other books I have listened to. Other than that I really liked the book.
Robb has another great hit with Dallas and all her crew. She has everyone in this book and we get to peek into their lives. the murder story is a good one and Dallas saves the day again
a good series.
Listen from the beginning and learn about everyone
I have been a Nora Roberts fan since she first came on the scene writing for series romances (oh, so many year ago!). When she started writing her "in death" series I was hooked. Haven't missed a one and since they became available on audio my father-in-law has also become a fan. Listening to Susan Ericksen is a joy and a pleasure, her idividual voices bring the story to life. I hope she continues to narrate the J.D. Robb series because she is the best I have ever heard. Thank you!
You have to have a tolerance for formula if you're going to read many of the "In Death" books. I view them as brain candy, usually fun to listen to and then I can let them wash right out of my brain, so no memory units are taken up with them. This also means I can listen to the same book over & over as long as I leave some time between repeats.
This entry in the series has more focus on side characters than many of them, with Amy and especially Morris prominent. It's kind of a relief to move some of the focus from Eve; her quirks can turn into annoying obnoxiousess at times (i.e. in "Holiday in Death" she's just a total, intolerable bee-yatch).
I confess that I don't often like female narrators, but Susan Ericksen is outstanding. Her voice is wonderful, and her rendering of the various characters is excellent. Even her male characters sound believable, which is often a problem with women readers (Yes, many male readers stink at female voices, too, but somehow I have an easier time with a contralto 'female' than a soprano 'male'...so shoot me).
It is worst than any addiction know to man: I have to listen to case, the build up, making the murder board, the hit and miss and the threat. I just cannot seem to get enough of the stories JD comes of with. It is my major evening entertainment after a long day at work, caring for others, handling multiple client concerns, etc. it is what I do for me without having anything to do but figure out Eve Dallas's next move. Wow!
I would, as it's a well-written and well-performed example of a compelling series.
Pretty much every scene with Morris in it is memorable.
The brainstorming at the bridal shower scene was memorable.
No, but it did make me feel much sympathy for Morris, who has always been one of my favorite characters of the series.
I have read all of the In Death books. I really loved the first one and I really felt this one was as powerful. It is worth the credit.
I loved the way it focused on the REAL friendship between Eve and Morris as well as the diverse friendships of all the SMART women
Yes! Because of the raw emotions it brought out in me, I felt like I was part of the team myself. I hated being interrupted when listening. I couldn't wait to hear what was coming next
The way she brings all of the characters to life just by the inflections in her voice. I ABSOLUTELY love Susan Ericksen. She is one of those narrator's that could read a phone book and make it sound interesting.
I'm not sure what a tag line is, but just guessing....Maybe something like Eve Dallas and the REAL A-Team kicking some major ass
I love all the In Death series. I listen to them over and over again starting with the 1st book. I really don't get why some Hollywood hot shot hasn't started a tv series for these books. It would be so awesome. But then again if the right characters are dif from what you have in your head I suppose that could be disappointing also
This book pulled at me hard. Eve and Morris' relationship has become close and trusting. It tore at me when Eve had to deliver such news to her friend, their relationship having grown with each book.
But Morris is part of the family now and the wagons have circled, even as his patient and methodical mind begins the arduous climb to acceptence.
I do hope in time that the depths of "Morris" and his character are plumbed much more and that his part in this series finds more of what he only briefly touched and began to believe in.
In the end, you can only worry that his brief encounter with the opening bars of love, will find him again. He seems to me to be very complex with a deep warmth inside him, not often found in others.
A warmth just waiting..
