Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.
I love these characters and the story that developes around them.
Thank you and keep them coming.
JD Robb had me hooked with the 2nd book in this series. I have spent most of my spare time in the last year listening to ALL of this series and I love all of the characters that have developed with each book. Mavis and Eve make the best if not the weirdest set of best friends!! And to see Eve develop from having no friends except Mavis into having a group of friends that are very diverse, funny, and I can picture myself right there in 2060 having a tube of Pepsi right with Dallas. Can't wait for the next book. Hurry up September!!!! And thank you to Jd Robb (Nora Roberts) for creating these characters to be part of my reading pleasure!!!
Definitely not. She starts this book out with trying to do an Irish accent for almost the entire 1st chapter. She was so bad, that it ruined the whole experience for me, and I really couldnt' concentrate on the story.
I haven't read the print version. The audio version is done well.
Roarke. He has everything. He has a mysterious, dark past. Now he has bcome a law abiding citizen. He has money, a castle of a home. He loves Eve completely, unquestionably. He's sweet, kind, and understanding. He's also a genius in gadgets and in all-things computer related.
She does an excellent Irish brogue.
Yes but it actually took four or five sittings. It's difficult to sit and listen for eight or nine hours!
Yes. Lt. Dallas is tough, savvy, and a "cop's cop" Good detective work, believable.
Being that this one is in the future I can't compare. I typically don't read sci fi or futuristic stories but this was believable.
In the shoe store with her partner, who's literally drooling over the high priced shoes. Their interaction is hilarious.
I laughed a few times.
Good enough that I downloaded two more of Robb's works.
My husband and I both love this series - so much so that we are making ourselves listen to other things to prolong the experience as we get closer to caught up!! The stories are intriguing and keep you listening. The time on long car trips just zooms by. Susan Ericksen really brings them to life. This is one instance where listening is far better than reading a printed book.
Continuation of the ongoing 'In Death' theme.
Susan Ericksen brings all of the main characters to life. She does an amazing job of differentiating them. I particularly like her Peabody.
If you haven't read an 'In death' book before - start from the beginning!
Anyone who doesn't mind silly accents and innocuos characters.
Narration, accents, interpretation of Eva as rude and crude. References to futuristic technology such as
Never.Why does Peabody talk like a mentally challenged woman right out of the film,
Boredom and impatience.
Story may not have been so bad but for the narration.
I wish Ms. Ericksen would narrate everything I read. If you read J.D. Robb, then go find other books narrated by Ms. Ericksen - you won't be disappointed.
I absolutely love all of the "In Death" series. I love the reader's ability to adapt her voice to sound like all of the many characters in the books. I am a little sad that I only have 2 more books to listen to in the series before I am at the end (so far) of the (mis)adventures of Eve, Roarke, She-body, McNabb and company!
I love Nora Roberts, and I am amazed at how prolific a writer that she is! Keep up the great work, and I will continue to be a loyal listener, whichever nom-de-plume you use!
