Please commission both Joe Montegna and Burt Reynolds to redo/reread the early Spenser Novels for audio. & Walking Shadow also. Someone should redo those audios even if they aren't able.
Perfect Memory Detective
Story line about a detective with a perfect (sort of) memory
Spenser, the detective, was my favorite character.
l look forward to reading the rest of the series.
I enjoy Robert B. Parker stories, BUT, I'm already on chapter 3 and ..... I will never ever ever never purchase another audiobook narrated by Michael Prichard. This is dull and painful! "O, speak to me no more! These words like daggers enter my ears!" It took me three days to get through this narrator. :-/
Parker drops us into Spenser's world with a snappy mystery involving love, drugs, and Chaucer.
Spenser, but only because we don't meet Hawk in this book.
Writer & daddy.
Great start to the series. Hippy dialogue seems dated now but it is only sprinkled throughout the early chapters. Looking forward to next book.
I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.
Very easy to listen to. As long as you don't expect too much in terms of depth of plot and character. Main character is very likeable and i would listen to more by Parker. I enjoyed this.
Change the narrator.
Never have before.
No. To bland.
Hope the next would be better.
This was hard to get into. Didn't like the narrator and the whole story was slow and from the 60's I think. Enjoyed the Spenser movies and TV show but this was a hard listen. I hope the next one is better.
I'm a Spenser and I thought it would be good to go back to the beginning and see how all this started. I enjoyed the first time perspective of this novel and it was fun to see Spenser stretch his legs. However, I'm not too much of a fan of the "Grandfather reads a book" style of narration. I much prefer the story telling actor narration of, say, Scott Brick or Simon Vance. I think I will avoid the rest of the Michael Prichard Spensers and put them on my Kindle instead.
