This is a great addition to the Milhone canon, and sees her working closely with Lieutenant Con Dolan for the first time in a while.
I particularly found the after story very interesting and how Sue Grafton came up for the idea to "Q"!!
Especially as an audiobook the story gets tedious. I feel as dragged down by the slowness of finding out things as the police. I know the narrator is good and has to do many voices, but the gruff male police voices are grating. I feel I better read the rest of the series rather than listen to them.
I am disappointed, because I have enjoyed reading several Kinsey Millhone books in the past, but I don't remember the long and dry descriptions of scenes. I just kept drifting off - the pacing was wrong and it just couldn't maintain my focus. To give Sue Grafton her due, it may have been because of the pacing and narration of Judy Kaye......This audiobook really has pretty bad narration. I can't figure out why so many people in California small towns have strong southern accents, and everyone sounds like they're in need of a drink of water to quench their dry throat. The bad narration could also be responsible for the bad pacing and overall drag of the story, because I don't ever remember that being a problem when I read Grafton's books.
I have been a Kinsey fan for a long time. I am going back through the Alphabet Murders and having a blast. Perfect writer that any introvert would enjoy.
All of Sue Grafton's books pull you in from the beginning. You feel everything Kinsey does. I love this series!
I have listened to all of her narrations of Kinsey and she is the best one. She IS Kinsey Millhone.
She needs to be the ONLY narrator for the alphabet series.
This is my first time seeing the unabridged book by narrator Judy Kaye. It was great! I may have to go back and get the unabridged A-P with Judy Kaye. This series keeps offering new ways to hear these books.
Judy Kaye is much better than Mary Pfeiffer. I was very happy that starting with Q she is the narrator on Audible again. She does a great job of bringing the alphabet mysteries to life.
Yes, I would definately reccoment this to others. The reader is very personable and keeps her many voices seperate! I wouldn't be able to do as well as she did!
I like the way she has a different voice for each character. Helps bring them alive!
Not that I can think of right now.
