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 .
Yes I think I would. The writer is very good but the narrator is hard to get into. Her voice at times is just so boring.
Any of the murder mysteries.
Monotone at times - clear - and oddly captivating.
It took me awhile to get into this book. It was dry in the beginning but the last 3 hours of the book, things got going and was BAM, BAM, BAM until the end.
Covert spy & crime thrillers with lone heroes. Lots of action, start to end. Bad endings = bad book. Love Jack Reacher & Nathan McBride!!
New to this Author/series. Will continue. enjoyed #1. Interesting plot and story line.
I've listened to several Lisa Gardner novels. She's a good storyteller but I must give props to Anna Fields on this one. She did so many different voices and each one came to life. Different New England accents, male and female - hard to believe it was all the same reader. I really enjoyed this book more because of her.
