I'm a lifelong book lover.
Sleeping Doll tells the story of a very evil man and his escape from prison. The twists will keep you guessing and Kathryn Dance is very intuitive. Excellent descriptions of both mood and affect are given and most of the loose ends are tied up, though not all. This is a well thought out chase and you really hate Daniel Pell and you really feel for the good characters. The narration is excellent and you will enjoy this story.
The story is a good one, with a lot of detail and several interesting twists. I'm not completely sure about my rating, it felt awfully slow going at times, but I may have been put off by the narration more than by the storyline. Anne Twomey has a very clear diction and everything is understandable perfectly, but, alas, it sounds like a dictionary being read aloud. I hadn't quite realized how mindnumbingly boring a book like this can sound... In hindsight, I would have preferred the paper version. It may deserve 5 stars, but as it is, I'm feeling generous at 4.
Book was a good mystery, but somewhat drawn out. Not sure about the idea of the body language detective. Don't believe that I'll give book two of the series a try.
Love the thrillers!
Ranks very high on my list of audiobooks.
The twist(s) at the end or what I thought was the end.
I liked them all.
I downloaded the next two in the series.
I couldnt get past this narrator to be able to enjoy the reading of this book. I found myself daydreaming or simply not listening because this woman told such an incredibly boring tale, that I lost interest. I can only tell you what the beginning is about ( before I lost interest), some of the middle ( which I tried to focus on and get past the narration to enjoy the story. I spent the money after all..) but none of the ending ( because I never made it that far.). Still don't know what happened. I honestly don't care. I would rather not know than to listen to her again. For me, I am disappointed that I wasted the credit ( darn you little sample clip) and am pretty sure I will never buy another book that is narrated by Anne Twomey.
Love history, good mysteries, spiritual, in general well written books. Shy away from romance novels.
I really enjoyed this book. It had been awhile since I had listened to a murder thriller and this was very good. A Manson-like murderer escapes from prison and brings panic and bloodshed where ever he goes. There are a lot of twists and turns that make sense and keep the reader's interest.
Story is pretty good .. characters are pretty real ... but all the "insight" into the mind of this "expert" just made the book drag on hour beyond what could have/should have been the end.
Outstanding story and narration. You do not want to stop listening. Thoroughly enjoyed - one of the best from Jeffery Deaver.
This is the first Jeffery Deaver I have read and I enjoyed all of the twists and turns. I particularly liked the narrator, Anne Twomey. She has a low, soft voice which is suitable for both genders and she gave a very thoughtful, low-key reading. I didn't think I would like it at first, but as I kept listening, I thought her voice very suitable for this book.
