I believe I like this one best of the whole series.
Eve has shown so much personal growth over the course of the series but she is really in control of herself in this one. The conversation between her and Peabody about what made them become cops was extraordinary. Her insight into the feelings of Meara and Whitney and their dissappointment at the situation would not have fit in any earlier books
Her distinct voices for each character is always good but there were alot of added people in the cop shop in this one and it was easy to keep straight all the conversations. You could almost hear the tears in Peabody's voice a couple of times.
I had a terrible time turning this one off. I got a lot of exercise at the gym the last two days because it was a good opportunity to listen, lol. I even listened about a half hour after turning out the light last night while my husband snored next to me. Thank goodness for earbuds.
I am already mourning the fact that there are only two full books and one short story left before I catch up to Ms. Robb.
It is outstanding….
When Dallas put her gun down and takes her on hand to hand...
Entire In Death books, this one is the best so far. Not that I’ve found a bad one. This book has all of Dallas's team working together and it also bring in people form other department and I love that. If this is your first In Death book it will make you want to go back and read them all... I'm hooked...
This series is about my favorite ever.. I have listened & read all of them and feel like the characters are friends that I check in on from time to time.
I love that Peabody got a chance to really shine in the story, Eve has turned her into not just a good cop but a great one.
Susan has become the characters in my head so that I can hear 'their' voices even if I happen to be reading one instead of listening.
Because I listen & relisten to this series I tend to get caught up in the characters, laugh when they do, cry & morn with them.
Eve Dallas was my favorite. She was funny and complex.
Peabody just sounded funny. I liked Peabody's character but she kind of sounded like a cartoon.
It was predictable but satisfying.
The story is good; the narration is horrible. The accents are poorly done and I cringed every time Peabody was called 'Peabuddy'. I think I'll just read the Eve Dallas books from now on.
This novel was unbearable for me: simplistic plot, painfully dopey voice characterizations (the voice used for Peabody was cringe-inducing: where exactly is Peabody supposed to be from?) and, as has been pointed out by others, absolutely no thought given to the "50 years in the future" aspect. Skip it. Read some Elmore Leonard instead.
As all J.D. Robb books, a good basic listen but this one drags on a bit--long narratives going on and on....where you're telling your book "ok, I get the point already--move on!"
Good enough derring-do. But, oh my. The lectures. Instead of showing the reader that cops are fabulous, wonderful, brave, moral creatures, the author tells us that. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and ....I won't be selecting another by this author.
Addicted to Audio Books !
Such an energizing read. So hard to stop listening, especially with such an amazing Narrator as Susan Ericksen is. J.D. Robb's "in Death" Series has made a marathon listener out of me. This series is the best addiction I have ever had. I have finished the series and I am finding it very difficult to find another series to listen to that can catch my attention as this series has. I loved each and every book in this series.
So much Talent: J.D. Robb, Susan Ericksen, the perfect compliment to each other. I so look forward to the next book in this Series.
