I felt like I was 5 years old and someone was reading me a bed time story. Not a good narrator and will likely not buy any more books narrated by CJ Critt
Love Patricia Cornwell novels, great author. Excrutiatingly difficult to listen to narrator. I started and stopped listening to this book five separate times; finally decided to continue listening since I purchased it (gave up credits).
The entire storyline was good.
Her narration was flat except during those times when she tried emphasizing a particular exclamation which was, in my opinion, at inappropriate times.
I will not purchase anything narrated by this individual in the future.
I have read (paperback) several Scarpetta novels - and have always enjoyed them - but this narrator just ruined it for me. Monotone, monotone, monotone - get the idea. I didn't even finish it...waste of money
I enjoyed this book as I enjoy all Patricia Cornwell's books. I hate listening to CJ Critt. She makes Benton sound stiff and constipated! She frequently pronounces medical terms incorrectly. I prefer Kate Reading to read.
I haven't finished this book yet but I am not liking the reader. One of the few times that I find the reader is distracting me from the book: unnatural pauses in the reading, lack of animation in the voices of the characters. Even missed the opportunity to do NY accents. I admit to not being a huge fan of Cornwell anyway but the performance is making it that much more difficult to finish.
