The new narrator took a little getting used to. It's a tall order to follow after Barabara Rosenblat! She was so feisty, sarcastic and humorous. The new narrator is a little more low key, but good. I'm a nurse, so, I love the descriptions of the first aid and CPR that Anna performs. They are accurate. I'm a little odd as a reader in that I like descriptions of the natural world and would have liked a little more about The vistas of Mesa Verde National Park. The plot, storyline and character development are always great in Nevada Barr novels. The little romance budding between the park ranger and the FBI agent tugged at my heart strings and made me cheer for Anna pigeon! Go Anna :) !!!!!
This must be the worst abridged version of a book I have ever listened to. So many pieces were missing I couldn't even follow the plot. I will tell you that I really like the author, so I am sure the actual book is good. But do not get this audio version!!!
It is never a waste of time to listen to any book in Nevada Barr's Anna Pigeon Series, but you miss so much of the beauty of the backdrop for each story (the National Park), that is it almost a crime to abridge it. Hold out for the unabridged version.
Hard to compare this book to the others I have listen too (all of them) because I always opt for the unabridged if available and the abridged version disappoints.
Love Nevada Barr but would never buy another abridged version
Impossible to follow choppy abridged version
Decent job - neither a cause to get the book nor a reason to avoid if.
It was already mangled in the abridgment. I certainly wouldn't cut anything
SKIP THIS ABRIDGED VERSION!
It was a real shock to go down to this telephone quality format. In spite of that, the national park and Anna Pigeon still entertained me.
I had never previously considered the USA as a holiday destination, but this series of books have made me change my mind. I really enjoy mystery novels that are strongly set into the landscape and people, and Nevada Barr does this so well.
I can't understand why this is in the Gay and Lesbian category. There are no gays or lesbians in it. Angers me to have spent the money.
