Obviously a lot of people enjoy JD Robb's books, so I'm sure this was a anomaly, but I was disappointed in the predictability of the plot and the contrived situations the characters found themselves in.
The characters were shallow and one dimensional. I have read Nora Roberts and thought JD Robb lend a rich dialogue, and but these characters did not live up to my expectations.
The accents she uses were very good, but I didn't enjoy the way she made the main character sound. Instead of being likeable, she was whiny and abrasive most of the time.
I wouldn't necessarily cut one of the characters, I would instead build more depth to their stories, and give more than one side to their character.
Say Hello to the characters you will come to love. Enjoying the character development as the books proceed adds immeasurably to the enjoyment. Read the series in order if at all possible. You won't regret it. And it is Impossible to believe that one woman provides all the narration. I honestly forget I'm not listening to multiple people!
I love this narrator! She is excellent. As for the story, it's good. The plot was a little bit predictable in some places, and very suspenseful in others! It's a good listen if you like some mystery, murder and a bit of unbelievable romance. It's a good listen.
I didn't get this for the mystery, really, but because I love Eve and Roarke's relationship, and this did not disappoint! I love them two together! The mystery was like a added bonus, and it was good as well. I didn't figure it out until midway through. Love the ending! Can not wait until book 3!
I have a lot of these books to download now and I am looking forward to downloading them all. The first one I didn't like so much and I suppose it was because I had to get acclamated to the character,Eve, the policewoman. In the first book she was so "hard" and emotionally inaccessible, cold and hard. I couldn't understand how any man especially a rich, fine, one could love someone like this character. Now as I listened to book 2, her character begins to become tender, open even loving to her mate. This is because her character with experience and understanding from her georgeous boyfriend has grown.
And again Susan Ericksen is one of the best narrators I've listened to. She is superb!
Dramatic, intriguing, exciting
This book reminds me of all of the other books in the series. All of them make me want to continue reading about the main character, Eve Dallas.
She really brings all the characters to life.
The different ways the characters showed their love, whether good or bad.
Eve and Crack were a good moment.
Susan is perfect for all the In Death books. Her different voices make me see the faces of the characters more clearly.
Careful what you say
I would recommend this. It flowed and it was just enough characters that it made it easy to follow.
I enjoyed the ending.
Tenacity at it's best
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
Great action love the strong women in story Eve is my favorite and the billionaire is my dream guy.
I am an avid reader, but listening to the In Death series read by Susan Ericksen makes it feel like I am in the story.
Eve is my favorite character because she is a strong woman who overcame a horrible childhood. She didn't let the nightmare of her childhood turn her into that kind of adult.
I enjoy listening to Susan reading this series.
