I Love to listen to books more often than reading. Audible gets me through the day and night more especially when I'm working !
Karin Slaughter has a manipulative way of making the story humorous in a way that is needed. It's like taking a small break away from the gory details. Very good listen I loved how the story was spliced into 3 parts and brought together collectively in the end. I hope the next listen in the series is just as good.
Definitely Not! The narrator was awful. Every person had an annoying and unreal Southern accent. Honestly, the men all sounded straight from Dukes of Hazzard, and the girls all sounded like pole dancers. As an Atlanta native, I've never heard anyone speak like that. Narrator also pronounced several street/county names incorrectly, which would have been prevented if he had researched a little.
Nothing extreme. Ending was broadcast by the middle of the book.
I gave this book four stars because while I was entertained, the last hour was a bit tedious and some of the characters got annoying. My main problem was the early Will Trent character. I made the mistake of reading Book 6 first, where Will was a capable and dedicated detective, physically diving for the bad guy with no difficulties. Unfortunately in Book 1, Will has so many negative character flaws, its difficult to like him. Intense insecurities, dyslexia, rotten childhood, OCD with his appearance, I pictured an androgynous male with no hope surviving in the world. Obviously I've got to read some books between #1 and #6, the character changes so much.
The reader's voice has a slow & low monotone voice which is annoying. I couldn't get past the first chapter because it annoyed so badly, so no review on the actual story. I will purposely NOT listen to any books he performs.
I love series suspense novels. this series i picked up just because i was looking for a new set. It was GREAT! Love the character connections and plot twist. Author dragged you in feeling one thing and you couldn't stop listening!
I listened to this book years ago and yet it crosses my mind, when listening to others, newscasts, debates or overhear conversations. It has made me tolerant of differences and how things are not always what you see hear, and believe
Excellent narrator. The story was a little predictable and not as clever as Slaughter's latest books, but still entertaining.
Stories are a journey and a destination worth while.
I liked the characters of the book, I know this is a series mostly about the detective, Will Trent, however I did like other characters in the book more and will be sad that they are not in the rest of the series.
Ms. Slaughter has written a book that is powerful and tugged at my heart strings. Michael Kramer read with a heart and such humane passion that felt like the book could have been written by him. Few times his narration almost brought tears to my eyes. Gory and violent, yes, but with a cause and within the context.
