I really liked the first books in this series, but it seems to be going downhill. Instead of good plot and character development, Sandford resorts to gratuitous swearing (f**ing this and f**ing that). I actually talk like that myself and hearing it used every other line in this book is making me realize how stupid it sounds.
Also, there's no possible way the reader could "get it" right up to the end. Don't know about the rest of you, but I prefer it when I don't get it, but the clues were there all along.
It's been taking me too long to finish listening to Broken Prey because of the narrator's voice. His voice is so garrulous it is so painful to listen to him. Otherwise, I know that this book is excellent as I have read all past "Prey" books by John Sandford
I'm not a fan of the narrator but the story itself was a really good one. It's a bit disturbing but not over the top.
I've never read the book.
Oh god yes! He did a good job of throwing me off. I did not know who the psychopath was until the end. I am so glad it was not one of those cliche books where the killer is revealed so early on in the story that continuing seems pointless. I had to find out who this crazy man was and hoping that Sloan would not retire. They make a great pair.
Love it. He did an awesome job. I loved the variations in voices and he read as if he wrote the book himself. He was intimate with the characters and the way he read made me feel as if I was there. It was so vivid and well done. GREAT JOB!!!
Yes. When Lucas woke up the next morning and Weather was already there asleep. She loves him so much.
What can I say about John Sandford and Lucas Davenport. They're the best. I knocked the story down one star, only because it was really fantastical. But that didn't stop me listening and enjoying the experience.
Long haul commuter. Audiobooks keep me from causing serious physical harm to my fellow commuters. Bless you, Audible!
John Sandford does it again with fast paced thriller. There are twists and suprises. You will not be disappointed. Note, this one is a bit sexually explicit but is integral to the story.
Fiction reader/listener: law enforcement, spy, military, science thriller, disasters.
Sandford & Ferrone team up for a great listen. I'm a big fan who just got bigger!
I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.
No, I don't care about everything Lucas Davenport is thinking that has nothing to do with the story line. The story meanders and becomes really boring and then back to the action. I stopped listening to it.
Keep the tension tight like he does in most of the other "Prey" novels.
Best Lucas Davenport
yes the plot did keep me on the edge of my seat
i have listened to all of them so far and i just enjoy him
