Disregard this review if you must because I didn't listen very long. It became clear to me that I should have read other books in the series or something before this one. This was not the best use of a credit for me.
Yes/No, the reader brings book to life.
Her helping everyone at the end. A strong spirit, I cried...
Eve, but all of the characters were unique
Revealing story of life in death.
I found this book to be very long-winded. After listening to the first few chapters I skipped to the second to the last chapter, in a sense listening to a very abridged version. The entire mystery is "what happened to Bonnie"? Since I had read prior Eve Duncan mysteries I knew about Bonnie and wanted to find out what happened to her. I found out but the listen was less than enjoyable. The narration was breathless and just plain odd. Don't recommend this one.
Probably not. The story was decent - I listened to the trilogy (Eve, Quinn and Bonnie), but the three books should have only been one. There is a lot of repetition. Further, the dialogue is wooden and overly dramatic and I found myself rolling my eyes every time one of the female characters "felt her breasts growing taut" with sexual tension. It got to the point that it was making me laugh, which clearly was not the intent. Narrator does a decent job with mediocre material. There are a lot better novels in the mystery/thriller/suspense genre and I won't be getting anything else by this author.
I have and will again recommend the entire Eve Duncan series by Ms. Johansen. I began reading her, but her stories lend themselves particularly well to audio and Jennifer Van Dyke has the perfect sense of drama, and character style in her rendition of the books.
I don't know what this book would be like for someone not familiar with the works preceding this conclusion to the mystery of Bonnie yet I think that the characters and plot are definitely enhanced with the background of the full Eve Duncan series. If I were to recommend just a few books to reach this Bonnie novel, it would begin with Chasing The Night, then Eve, followed by Quinn, and then Bonnie. Though it would be a shame to miss the beautiful intricacies of the earlier novels to understand the desperate passions of each of the characters in Bonnie.
Yes. It's an excellent book and performance.
The Eve Duncan series has always kept me spellbound.
Yes and it was up to her usual performance.
I thoroughly enjoyed Bonnie. I have followed Johansen's books for years and this was the culmination.
I've followed the bonnie story. unfortunately, some of the dialogue and story lines are drawn out and tedious. this happens through johansen's books occassionally and is very tedious in this book.
New Blues Gal
I was a little disappointed with this book. I thought it lacked the intensity of some of her other books.
This isn't what Audible advertised. NOT satisfying conclusion to Steig Larsen's 'Girl with...' books. Narrator's voice is agitating.
Yes. I won't listen to any of other books by this author. I will avoid books narrated by the same woman.
Slower pace, less saccrine child's voice performance. Lousy story. Poorly written.
Simply too sweet.
Beautifully written, managing to tie up all the loose ends of the series while crafting an intrigueing story all its own.
Bonnie's father, John Gallow, has previously been seen as a crazy man probably responsible for her murder. In this book a deeper side of John is sensitively unfolded and draws the emotions of the listener into reevaluating their previous take on John Gallow.
I love listening to Jennifer Van Dyck, her character portrayals and subtle inflections really bring the storylines to life. This book is no exception and has greatly benefited from Jennifer's talents.
Definately, and did so. I challenge anyone to switch off in the middle of this one.
The valiant story of Eve Duncan deserved a great conclusion, and this gives this series an appropriate end.
