I have listened to almost all of the "Andy Carpenter" character series!! I love the narrator, characters in the book and mostly Tara, the dog!!!
The story captures you in five minutes with Rosenfelt's wisenheimer style. He writes the way my family talks so I was intrigued from the get go. But my immediate family was not involved with the law, well not on the right side anyway. This story is about a man and his dog. He's a lawyer that get a case that turns his world sideways.
The story is fast with great turns and twists that you wish you could buy another ticket to ride this roller coster. Turns out you can. Get another book by the author, duh!
For a person who likes courtroom drama, this is a good find. This is the first book I've read in the Andy Carpenter series and I plan to read them all.
Telling a memorable moment would give away some of the plot. I was glad I read the suggestion to read the books in order since the characters and their relationships change. The beginning of the second book tells the end of the first.
I liked Andy's sense of humor throughout the book and the comments he would make to himself. I've now read the first 2 books and both held a sense of tension and mystery while also being entertaining.
I'm not creative with tag lines but I pictured Andy as Brad Pitt and that made me wish a movie would be made of him starring in a movie.
I have lived in the South since college. I listen to a couple of hundred audiobooks a year, mostly romance and suspense. I have have taken many writing courses over the past half-dozen years and am attempting to write a novel myself. I suspect that learning a lot about the craft of writing and trying to perfect my own writing has made me more conscious of poor writing technique and has made me a tough reviewer.
A different protagonist. Andy Carpenter is a loser-type: a self-deprecating, wise-ass attorney who reminds me something of Harlen Cobin's Myron Bolitar except with less ego. I think I used to like him but hadn't read any novels about him for years. Now I find him tedious.
The girlfriend investigator.
The mystery is okay. The narrator was good.
No. The story did not hold my attention. Too light, no character development at all. Waste of a credit.
Could not care about any of them
I live on an island off the coast of Maine. Since I installed a "doggie door" I am now retired from "Letting The Dogs In and Out"!
probably not because there are so many good books out there to read
Increased my interest in more of the author's work.
grainy rather sharp voice, eventually got use to it
Recommend this book.
Entertaing, good humor and snappy comments. Good performance. A great time passer but not a book you remember, I actually allready forgot what the case was all about. Anyway, recomenden. It was my first Rosenfelt, but not the last. Good narration.
funny, insightful, entertaining
human touch, the dumb sense of humor, the insights into our stupid human behavior
A Dogs best friend
I am buying lots of David Rosenfelt books, love his books, and the guy that reads them is very talented
