While the story was decent, the narrator breathed so loudly I almost quit listening. Her voice was not pleasing to listen to, either. This book would have been a better read than listen.
Nevada Barr's one of my three favorite authors, and Barbara Rosenblatt's my favorite narrator, hands down. A feast.

I never really got into “Track of the Cat”. The story is well written but it never really transported me there. The descriptions and explanations never made me feel as if I was actually there. I never felt a connection with the main character and the overall story left me wanting more. There wasn’t enough clues or even investigating to get me really invested and the ending really left something to be desired.
The narration was very slow and being a bit older the quality isn’t bad but not up to the standard of something recorded today.
This is the first book I have read by the author Nevada Barr and I liked it a lot! It is a good mystery with a great setting in the Guadalupe Mountains of Texas. I liked the main character, Park Ranger Anna Pigeon. She is unique and likeable.
I am definitely looking forward to continuing the mystery series with the second book: "A Superior Death."
Narration by Barbara Rosenblat was also good.
The narrator sounded so bored that I couldn't help but be bored as well. The sounds of her breathing between sentences made me think she was smoking and her swallowing sounds were like she was moving false teeth around. I couldn't even finish this book and usually finish books even if I don't like them because I paid for them, guess I wasted my money on This one.
Loved the story and the characters
The story is eciting from the first to the last chapter
I just kept listning.
This is the first Nevada Barr book I have read. It was not really good nor really bad. It had parts I enjoyed and parts I had to struggle through. The characters were well developed and the plot was interesting and solid. It just didn't grab me and it was a bit slow in areas. I might read another in this series. Maybe it will be better.
An engaging story in a beautiful wild setting. Anna Pigeon is a wonderful character, tough and abused by life, tender to her beloved animals, complex in her relationship with men, wonderfully witty in her duets on the phone with her NewYorkese sister.
I haven't read the print yet so I couldn't say, but I quite enjoyed the audio edition.
I don't want to say for fear of spoilers.
She is a good, solid performer and characters are distinct however, I have heard other books performed by Barbara Rosenblatt and that sameness in voice intruded a bit. I kept thinking that the same author was writing the other books as well and of course that isn't the case at all.
