I haven't managed to listen to even thirty minutes of this horribly narrated story and I can't listen any more. I tried, I really did. I stopped a few times and returned to the story later, hoping against hope that I was just too sensitive at first. But no, the narrator's inflections are all wrong and she pauses in the wrong places. I had to rewind several times to relisten to the passage so I could try to figure out what Patricia Cornwell had written because I couldn't tell from what the narrator read.
Now that I've wasted my credit for this audio book, I've got to go out and buy a paper copy so I can read it for myself. I just wish I had time to sit and do that.
The story was repetitive enough, but the narration was dreadfully slow. So much so that the
sentences and pauses muddled the emphasis. Held my interest not at all.
Grandma who spends too much time in her car. The books keep me happy and sane!
Great book, but please get things right in the summaries. His name is Benton Wesley, NOT Wesley Benton.
Otherwise, another great book, as are all of hers!
Say something about yourself!
A Less angry, self important Scarpetta. Seems she is surrounded by stupid, spoiled, closed off nitwits. Yawn
Retired Political Science professor from a community college. Especially like Legal Thrillers.
I have enjoyed Patricia Cornwell's Kay Scarpetta Series for a number of years. Cornwell's is a good story teller. I didn't find the narrator as bad as some reviewers. I thought that she did an excellent job with Morino.
Although I found this to be a good part of the Scarpetto series, I was disappointed that there would have been no way for the reader to solve the mystery before the end. The clues didn't add up to anyone we had been introduced to.
One final thought, despite the fact Scarpetta is billed as a Medical Examiner, I find her to be more of a detective than would be true of most Medical Examiners.
Unnatural Exposure, like all the Scarpetta books, are really good, they can be read in a series or singly, but understand back references help the read of later books. Another great book by Cornwell.
I definitely won't listen to this reader again. The voices were awful, and she emphasized unimportant words and syllables
The story was pretty good, though a little slow-moving for audio. As a full on geek, some of the computer stuff had me rolling my eyes. The technology inaccuracies could be forgiven, considering the book was published so long ago.
Part of the time. A few plot holes, but nothing major.
The voices were awful, and she emphasized unimportant words and syllables
Not on audible version
Not really,but may have been lack of talent of narrator
Totally missed proper inflections - a grade schooler learning to read might have done a better job! This woman should not be allowed to ruin another book for anyone!
Have always enjoyed Cornwell's books, but will never listen to another narrated by C.J.Critt- what a shame:(
I expected much more. The characters are well designed, and it is nice to follow them through the series. However, the story got bogged down with - I'm not sure what. But at times I was just waiting for it to get going. Then the ending was extremely disappointing. It was just 'there'. Oh well, I will try again, I usually enjoy her work.
