I couldn't listen to this book very long, therefore it is unfair of me to rate the plot.
As a lifelong southerner of 66 years, it never stops amazing me that actors and narrators trying to put on a southern accents almost all sound like England native Vivien Leigh's SCARLETT O'HARA in GONE WITH THE WIND.
It's like the proverbial fingernails on a chalk board.
If they would just speak normally I'm sure it would be much better.
The plot of this book got me going immediately. Being from the area where the book takes place, it was fun hearing about the places I knew as a child and young adult. That being said, if you're going to create an audio book that takes place in Mississippi, at least get someone to narrate it who can do a decent accent. Dick Hill hasn't got a clue how the people down here talk or pronounce certain words. It's NAtchez, not natCHEZ. It's prawlines, not praylines. Still a very good story that kept me listening.
You want to know what's happening,. what they are talking about, what they are looking at and almost watch it in your head as an action packed thriller. Awesome.
Loved the story and enjoy characters from other books brought into the story. Live the setting and the reader with his accent, performance was lower only because there were several places that we couldn't hear what was said due to pitch/tone of reader; but we enjoyed the reader a can't wait to start another Greg Isles book!!!
I have always been a Greg Iles fan but the narrator was painful to listen to. His voice was good but his underlying New York accent was thick and his southern, female and Boston accents were all brutal. There were a few mispronunciations, and the volume was variable with the dialogue so it was hard to listen to. I read this years ago and don't remember most of the female characters seeming so vapid. Overall the plot was interesting and suspenseful, if quite improbable.
Yes! It was a good listen, great narration, good story
I haven't, but I will listen to more
if you like his books, this follows his formula. it's an enjoyable mystery, in line with his other writings.
Don't miss this riveting story masterfully narrated by Dick Hill. This author's best work, as well possibly Dicks best work as well!
I can't seem to get enough of his books. There are so many nuances and thrills to the end. I highly recommend anything he had written.
