Said in Peabody's voice.... I was rather surprised at the emotional depth of the story. I feel like I need to go to "death in series" rehab. I keep saying this is my last one....off to the next!
Loved it. Narration is excellent! Another hit for Nora RobertsWriting as J D Robb. Great.
Eve is still growing and healing. Her ability to give and take expands.
This series is all one book delivered by an insanely gifted narrator-performer.
This was a tfuly enjoyable story . It is full of action, not to much sex and mysterious story plots. Great joy of reading the story. This wo woman is amazing at being able to bring those characters to life
Always after books that read well in the tractor!
At this point, if youre going through the series, you're falling into the rote process. This one was still interesting, especially with the visions aspect of it: and I honestly, did not see the ending coming. Kind of whacked me, and I was like, what? Had to rewind and listen again to get it all.
Another good one in the series!
I've been looking for an "In Death" book that features Peabody more, because I'm getting really, really tired of Dallas. She's such a Suzie 1-note...every book is the same; Eve gets wigged out because some murder (no matter what the circumstances) throws her back into her traumatic childhood memories, she acts like Testosterone Trixie, kicking ass, guzzling coffee, acting as if she grew up on Mars & has never heard of things like parties, housewarming or baby shower gifts, etc, etc. The woman clearly pays no attention to anything that goes on around her (other than murder things & her traumatic childhood flashbacks). Roarke continues to love her madly, wildly, etc even tho she's a monumental pain in the neck, a constant grouch, always late, etc yada (that's why it's a romance novel; no matter how obnoxious she is, the world's richest, most gorgeous guy stays besotted with her. Riiiiight).
I find Peabody to be a much more interesting character, largely because not only is she nicer, she's more lifelike & complex, she grows & changes some as the books go by, she's funny, she's decent --simultaneously hard-nosed and caring.
Another gripe with this book; Eve spouts that old, idiotic, tired, untrue myth about hair growing after death. Why can't authors grow a brain & stop with the stupidity on that? It drives me nuts! Hair and fingernails DO NOT KEEP GROWING AFTER DEATH. It doesn't add anything to the plots I've encountered it in, other than to point up the stupidity of the author. (Tho this wasn't as bad as another book I listened to recently, where a character not only claimed the hair 'n' fingernails garbage, but also that both dead bodies and STEAKS AT THE GROCERY WERE ALIVE AT A CELLULAR LEVEL(!!!). Ye gods, I know science is like voodoo to some people, but how dumb does it get? Moronic, apparently.
Susan Erickson does her usual excellent job with the reading; she nicely & consistently walks the line between straight reading & acting, her pacing is always good, her pronunciation is almost 100% perfect. Sometimes the 'special effects' they do with the computer &/or droid voices get overdone, but that's not the reader's fault, & they don't get so bad they overwhelm the book.
Audible addicted love mystery,lately stuck on love story. Mother of 1 Labrador and 1 perfect man. Work way too hard, and so ready to be retired
I love this series especially Peabody and mag nab. This series must be started from the beginning the characters are well developed Roarke and Eve is my favorites.
