Hollywood style, lazy writer.
The story is so canned and formulated. The characters seems borrowed from many similar books, the plot is also very predictable. In my opinion, the whole thing is very boring and an insult to any intelligent reader/listener.
I always felt the technical aspect of Hollywood is fantastic, which makes the setting so realistic. The skills of the actors are super, making the characters come alive on screen. The only unreal part and the weakest link is its script, and the writers "create" them. Their writing is often juvenile, rebottled from the shelf, absolutely no originality; lack any cleverness or creative ideas. Not only they have no talent to observe the real world, and bring a vivid depiction of this fascinating world to their story. The worst sin is that they forgot to entertain, but designate themselves as propaganda minister or comrade some sort to preach and showcase their boring political propaganda agenda. I thought only the old Chinese Communist movie industry did that. The difference here is people have to pay money to see these propaganda junks.
I find that David Rosenfelt is such a Hollywood style lazy writer. The story is so familiar, as I have heard many times before. I have to admit that I can not force myself to listening to the whole boring episode, and this review is based on my partial, impatient listening.
This book is part of a series. Excellent story, good listening and good narration. I highly recommend this book along with the others in the series of 6.
I was looking for a character I could follow in a series. After the disaster with Harlan Coben reading the most recent Myron Bolitar book, I was so happy to have found this author. Very similar humor and a great story line.
When I first started to listen to this book, i wasn't sure that I would be able to finish it. But it got good real quickly and become a very enjoyable listen. I thought the narration was great!
I enjoyed this book - a *little* predictable is my only complaint. Well read and entertaining. Worth the money.
If this is your genre then you must listen to this book!!!
I really enjoy the Andy Carpenter books. They make me laugh. The story isn't a great mystery, but it is very good entertainment.
