I started with Fear Not which was absolutely awesome! This book was equally awesome! Except the narrator sucked could barely tell the difference between characters. If the story was not good I would have stopped listening. Once you get past the monotone voice (if you can) the book is a great listen finished it in 2 days!!!
Yes, because of the Inflection, articulation, enunciation of the narrator. It adds to the characters and shows their personality thru the narrator's creative ability to alter their voice to sound different for each character.
Yes, it kept me on the edge of my seat.
I read the book version of this a long time ago when it first came out. I love the author and having it in audio is thrilling. I would recommend any books from Lisa Gardner. (and no I am not related nor paid to provide this input.
I think Lisa had a good idea for her plot but her narrator choice was terrible! Made me diss-like Bobby Dodge.
The Narrator Also Bobby was not written in a very masculine form. I think Lisa might be better at writing her female characters
The book itself was a another good one by Lisa, however the narration was absolutely terrible! If you continue to have men as the main focus maybe have a man do the voice! Her attempt of a mans voice was horrible and made me turn the audio off several times.
I suggest you READ the book don't listen it it, it ruined it for me.
Terrible, use a man to do a mans voice and the accents were so off it was a horrible performance.
Book was actually not bad but thus is without a doubt the worst performance I've ever heard. The accents were comical and switching between sexes was just painful. Hopefully the person has gotten better over time.
This is another hit for Lisa Gardner! With so many twists and turns, she will keep you guessing right up to the end...and beyond.
Anna Fields however, was in over her head. Her portrayal of Bobby Dodge and some of the other male characters were horrible. Bobby Dodge sounded like a dime store thug. He sounded nothing like intelligent and gentle professional that he was supposed to be. The voice Ms. Fields chose for him reminded me of some uneducated petty thief or maybe a member of a mob family. He did not sound at all like a respected professional sniper for the state police.
This was very disappointing. The only thing that made listening worthwhile was the story itself. It was just too good to stop listening based on the poor job by the reader. I hope in the future novels someone better is chosen to represent Lisa Gardner's books. I still recommend this book regardless.
narrator did a fantastic job, especially with the new England & southern dialects. masterful & organized. amazing how characters can endure so much hurt & life complications artfully carved out in the pages of the story and still function in the world. this fictional tale could easily be factual in so many lives under different yet still complicated circumstances. the sense of this reality was often apparent in the writing. that itself is what makes a good suspense, thriller, crime novel what it is. great first book in the series, will continue on .
