I was looking for a new author (I've listened to all of Connelly, Patterson...) and I realize the importance of character development - but so far I'm over an hour into this and nothing has happened....
I don't think so.
His dialogue is too wordy with much detail on extraneous characters.
I don't think I had a favorite scene.
No it needs a shorter book.
MY LISTENING EXPERIENCE OF THIS BOOK IS LIMITED TO THE FIRST TWO HOURS.AT THAT TIME I CONCLUDED I WAS WASTING MY TIME ON TRIVIAL AND TEDIOUS TRIPE,WHICH THE EFFORTS OF THE READER COULD NOT SAVE.
I am married with a teenage son and run my own business. As I am visually impaired, audio books are my life.
This book started off really weird, so much so that I was going to leave it. I decided to perservere and was pleasantly surprised how the story changed and became more interesting. Although it's not a great book it is a good story if you are into crime stories. I'm glad I kept going with it
no - toooo much detail
yes - i want my money back as it caused me to fall asleep
The book keeps you guessing and involved.
There were many but there was one part where I had to rewind so that I could figure out who was in the bed with Blank!!!
His voice matches the character Delaney perfectly. I can visualize him talking just as Vietor speaks.
On some parts I did. There can be parts of this book that are "unconventional" and if you take it for what it is (entertainment) it may not bother you. If you take it to heart you may or may not be able to get past some parts.
This is a great book to listen to and it introduces you to a nice character in this series. In my personal opinion is started a little slow but picked up speed and excitement. A lover of detective novels will like this due to the presence of reasoning and the interpretation of evidence and so forth. I would put this in the same league as Michael Connolly's Harry Bosch series. Very well written and the beginning of a new adventure as a detective in the series. Great listen overall.
Great story but dated - LOVED the characters and am definitely reading the rest of the series. Well worth the $5 spent!
Marc Viedor does a wonderful job on W.X. Delaney. Deadly Sin 2 and 3 are also good.
The main character is really the story.
Least interesting is an over use of fifties slang.
He does a wonderful job in the Sin series.
I have the tape version of the four books by an other reader with a weak voice and it isn't even worth listening to. Vietor fits the role.
Now reading Deadly Sin 2 and will likely get 3 and 4.
Am nearing 84, have 3 children, 5 grandchildren and 1 half Japanese great grandson all delightful. Enjoy listening & reading
I had never heard of this series and after listening to this First Deadly Sin, have ordered the lot. I was a little put off by the opening part and thought I had ordered the wrong book but soon became totally involved in Mr Sanders great characterisations plus the brilliant narration. It was like watching a movie in my mind. There have been a few books where I was swayed by reviews and then found them wanting, but not this time.
