Worried about Lisa Gardner. I think I've now read four of her books and three out of four have had something about Munchausen (a fairly rare)syndrome. One book had the world's worst narrator, two were ok and this they went for multiple, three, different voices. Don't know why, but not only didn't add to listening, it made it worse. The story itself is ok but certainly don't get any real feeling for the characters. Since this series is supposedly about our heroine Sargent Dee-Dee there is very little development of her character. I got pulled into this series because I accidentally listened to book six in which Dee Dee was interesting so I went and bought the other books. Too bad.
This book was enjoyable to me because there were several narrators and not just one person struggling through the various characters.
I think for the most part it did. I don't recall being bored with the book at all.
There were several narrators, they all pretty much fit the characters well.
No extreme reaction.
I'd recommend this book.
I ENJOY BIOGRAPHY AND NON-FICTION. I LIKE TO LEARN FROM STORIES.
I liked the story but wanted to skip lots of everyday details, so no.
It should be condensed. The ending was a bit surreal.
I enjoyed this book, however, if you are sensitive to stories about sexual assualt, do not read this book! The book constantly had twists and new suspects, which kept me hooked!
The ending truly was a surprise, and definitely in a good way.
I would recommend this book, but most of my friend's don't like a book with some sex talk in it, and a few naughty word's, but they don't have an open mind. I didn't think it was as bad as some of the review's, in fact, I was not offended by it in any way
When she told her husband she was having his baby.
I don't remember all the narrator's, but I thought all of them did an excellent job
As a matter of fact, I did cry.....
If you haven't purchased it, do so, it isn't as bad as some of the review's...
The performance was great by the narrators! The story was also great! Lisa can lend a very gripping edge to her stories and have you wanting to keep going. I also do like her endings as she is very good at wrapping up details in her stories.
I listened to this solely based on the narrators. I did like the story. Lots of twists and turns.
Yes, I would, but you'd need to know that I stumbled upon Touch & Go, and worked my way backward in the series. I absolutely hated the first in the series because of the narrator. The story is ok.
Added more detail to "Jason" it got a little boring. Too vague, also the story didn't have many ebbs & flows. Pretty flat then boom, the end.
I love Kristen Potter's voice. She was great.
It was really nice to have different voices by three different people for the major characters in this book. My experience with audio books up to this one were of the one actor/narrator for the whole book variety. This was a nice change and the three narrators are very good.
So this is book 3 from this author for me. I like to listen to them in order. The first story was good, the second story was incredible, and this third story was captivating. I really enjoy the way Gardner can tell these stories in such a mesmerizing way.
My one, and really only, complaint is the D.D. Warren character. My favorite genre is detective stories and most of the lead detective characters are just that - characters - but they have something in their personality that, in spite of themselves, endears them to the reader. D.D. Warren has nothing that endears her to me and her negative attitude and the way she jumps to predictable conclusions, in spite of the facts that are right in her face, is now annoying. It's maddening how she delights in disturbing Bobby Dodge. Really? Let it go already and have some consideration for others, for heaven's sake! And could she not think of sex in every situation??!! I am sooooooo not a fan of this character!!
What keeps me coming back, in spite of the D.D. Warren character and my growing dislike of that character, is the way Lisa Gardner can spin a tale. It's hard to break away once I get into one of her books. The stories have been fascinating. Now if we can just fix the Warren character...
