What a treat! Thus far, I've read the entire Davenport series in hard copy. Having Richard Ferrone tell me this tale made all the difference. His voice and delivery are just right for the gritty story.
In my book, this ranks as one of the best Prey stories to date. Davenport is working with his usual cast of characters plus a couple of sheriff departments to catch a truly deranged killer. There's lots of action and suspense, and enough plot twists and red herrings to keep a process junkie like me happy. I literally did not stop listening for the last two hours unless I absolutely had to. Highly recommended for Sandford regulars as well as those new to the author.
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
honestly--the reader. I'd listen to a phone book read by this guy! However, the story is great too, and rather fast-paced.
Write and teach about horses and horse training. Enjoy good mystery novels and true stories about horses and horse people.
This is my third time to go through this part of the prey series and I finally was able here Davenport's top 100 rock songs. this story is somewhat graphic for people who don't like explicit details on murder and or six. but for crime drama it's another great read.
What can I say, I'm a sucker for every one of these. Love them all. Lucas and his band of merry men have broken up but it's still a great series.
Richard Ferrone does such an amazing job I'd feel cheated if I had to read one of these instead of listening to him narrate.
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.
