I have listened to most of this series several times, and they are wonderful. The characters are believably flawed, and the futuristic elements are fun - making one think about the possible societal changes we could see in the next 55 years. I often grab a favorite from the series to re-listen and enjoy those moments in the character development. This summer I decided to start over with "Naked In Death" and listen to them in order (for only the second time). I am trying to listen as though I don't know where they're headed. There is a lot of content to take in, so each time I usually manage to notice something I've missed previously. The whole series is very well read - Susan Ericksen is a fantastic narrator. Someone else mentioned that her latina/latino characters are all the same, and I have to say that's true of the people identified as from the Midwest also. Everyone sounds like they're from somewhere on the border of North Dakota and Minnesota. But she has at least 15-20 recurring characters who are readily distinguishable by her performance, which is phenomenal. Well worth your credit - enjoy!
Naked in Death is amongst one of the great listens that I have listened to thus far. Susan Ericksen is an excellent narrator. I love the characters Eve and Rourke.
I really enjoyed this book. The narrator is just did a fantastic job and really brought an outstanding story to life for me. Highly Recommended
A stronger plot that wasn't so easy to dissect, removing the hormonal passages that didn't move the story forward
If the genre were steamingly meaningless sex, I was never onto it in the first place. If the genre is mystery thrillers, the book is a very poor example.
Yes. The narration was very good, though it exhibited some examples of sloppy editing.
Disappointment. My girlfriend is big on the series, so I had been hoping for some good mystery that we could enjoy together.
If what you're looking for is a lot of meaningless sex, I suppose this book is as good as any. I can't imagine women being attracted to books where an aggressive, domineering male who refuses to take no for an answer is just what the female lead has wanted, but then again, I'm not a woman.
Right up there with my favorites. Only other series that I've enjoyed so much is the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon. (If you read those, be sure to select the UNABRIDGED.)
This book and the 38 more to come have it all - great plot, deep character development, love story, flashes of humor, and nice spicy touches of romance. After listening to the first one, I bought all 38 more. (Serendipitously, most of them were on sale at the time. YEAH!) Have raced thru 9 already and they are all GREAT. Have to slow down and listen to something else so I can make the other 29 last.
Great voicing for so many different characters. Her inflections and interpretation of the nuances of the text are PERFECT! I'm going to search for more books narrated by her.
The childhood traumas of both Eve and Rourke are written with great empathy, and deepen with each additional book.
I've never written a review before. J had to take a minute from my crazy schedule to let folks know that you'll love these books!
The story is good but the Susan Ericksen's performance makes it great!
The characters are really well developed. I couldn't wait for the next book, and 3rd and 4th!
Lt. Dallas, of course. I love her character.
The romance seems forced and tends to carry on too long.
Book 2, the thrilling part of the book has convinced me to give it another chance.
This is my first, she was great.
I don't generally read or like future type books. I enjoyed this and am looking forward to the rest of the series. Great to have a book that there is a strong female with a great man supporting her and loving her becuse she is a strong woman.
At first I hesitated reading this series, because there are so many, but I'm glad I took a chance. I like the strong heroine, Eve Dallas & Roarke. The narrator was good also. I recommend this series.
I am a college professor and professional actor, director and playwright. The peformance of the book is as important to me as the writing.
Sorry this kind of book is not for me. Too pat and predictable. Left me bored.
