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!
I have read almost all the In Death series and I will say I can't live without my Roarke and Eve fix. I could only wish for a man like Roarke! I love J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts and have not yet found a book she has written that I have not enjoyed. I like the futurustic possibilities in this series that are believable. Susan Ericksen is GREAT!!! I have listened to her narrating other books besides this series and have enjoyed all . . . yet, I love the In Death Series so much that I keep thinking of Eve & Roarke while listening to her in other books. YEAH for J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts!
Another great listen by J.D. Robb. If you like this series you will like this one as well. Has a few new twists, not just more of the same. A good choice.
