It keeps you intrigued.
The last word or words of each chapter was cut off, possibly to fit the whole book on a certain number of CD initially. It is annoying when you reach the end of a chapter and it cuts off the last word or two.
The reader does a great job of expressing each character. The way he reads, enables you to visualize what is going on. I like both the printed book and audio, I find audio versions easier.
The author is a great, he sets up the characters in such a way that lets get to know them but leaves some things out so that you need to read the next book to learn more. This story is haunting but exciting at the same time
He brings inflection and depth to the characters. He helps you to visualize the characters, you can almost feel the excitement more with his reading.
The way Luke is especially caring of his friends, all of them
It is a great book, you need to try it
I never read the book, but listening creates such a vivid experience for me.
Hands down I loved Davenport.
When Davenport is pondering his decision about being faithful to only one woman and he believes he can do it for 2 years. Doing this while stalking a killer.
When the story was over and the author was sharing his thoughts I really enjoyed how the book came to be.
I want to listen to the entire series now.
THE NARRATOR'S TEMPO. READ THIS BOOK WHEN IT FIRST CAME
OUT. GOOD LISTEN TOO.
VINCE FLYNN'S MITCH RAPP. STOP AT NOTHING OR DO ANYTHING
TO GET HIS MAN OR JOB DONE.
MAKE SURE TO LISTEN OR READ THEM ALL.
Listening to this book is both good and bad. The story is good, if you can get past the narrator. The narrator has a harder time, the some others, with changing his voice for women and other characters. I love this series, but I do not love the narrator. I would suggest your listen to the sample recording in full before buying this download. I hope they redo this book with a new narrator, but it probably won't happen.
The ending is amazing. The beginning is perfect for delivering the pacing, tone, and overall story impression to the audience.
I would have to say he is one of the poorer narrators I have listened to on Audible. He struggles with female characters, and his voice does not change with each character.
Agree with Gail in Oct. 2011. Audible should pull this book and redo the edit. Tech that edited this cut every chapter short. All end abruptly, missing the last word or two. Really distracting and takes away from a good story. Becomes even more obvious as you get further into the story. Badly done!
The pace and the numerous twists and turns of the plot keep the interest up. There is the element of mystery with the unknown caller who keeps egging the crazy criminal on. I loved the partial happy ending for one of the victims.
The bad guy is very smart. He and Lucas are both gamers and keep trying to outdo one another.
He modulates his voice and creates a convincing array of characters.
The treatment of the kidnapped victims by the sociopathic bad guy is horrific.
Vintage Sandford. If you love the Lucas Davenport series, this is a must read.
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
This was terrible. The main character is a poor imitation of James Bond but he is incompetent and I would never want him investigating any murder. All he did was sleep with different women who then were totally unrealistic in their dealings with him. The only reason I listened to the whole story was because the beginning was promising. Unfortunately things declined and by the end I really had nothing good to say about it.
Yes, enjoyed it...
The mystery, the unknown...
The folks have said it all before me, a good listen...
