The book was as enjoyable as the rest of her series, but I'm puzzled. I often listen in bed at night, and do a lot of rewinding the next day, but I'm unaware that the time discrepancy between when Mike says he saw the men and the Disneyland birthday trip was ever resolved! Anyone?
We have enjoyed many of Sue Grafton's books and looked forward to this one. "U" is boring, redundant, predictable, and sometimes offensive. "U" is likely to be the last Sue Grafton we will listen to.
I love this series and was skeptical about listening to this one after reading some of the reviews. Glad I listened to it anyway. It was as good as all the other Kinsey adventures. If you like the series, you will not be dissapointed!
I love a good mystery
I just love all of her books and this was as good as her other ones. I look forward to each new addition.
When Kinsey is discovering information about her family, this book is very good. Unfortunately, the parallel storyline isn't that good & overall the book is a bit disappointing.
I have long been a fan of Grafton's and loved her earlier work. I'm afraid she has run out of steam though, and this book was a disappointment. A third of this book could have been edited out and the impact would have been positive - the pace would have been improved and we would have been spared from spending so much time with these uninteresting people. Thrillers often sacrifice character development for plot. If the plot is sizzling the character development won't be missed. (Dan Brown, anyone?) Here, plot is sacrificed for backstory. The mystery isn't very mysterious and the characters who are new to this story are all pretty annoying. On a more positive note: Terrific job, as usual, from Judy Kaye the reader.
Say something about yourself!
I became a kind of a fan of Sue Grafton. I liked it altouhg is is not the book of the year.
