Drop some of the story lines! I have read or listened to all of the alphabet books by Sue Grafton, but honestly, I had a difficult time finishing this one. It's disappointing. Too many story lines going on and I lost track easily of who is doing what to whom! I don't remember ever getting sidetracked with her books before. I have at minimum a 45 minute drive twice a day over beautiful, but boring country roads. I listen at minimum 2 long books a month, with a couple days of music sprinkled in. With this book, however; I couldn't keep all the story lines straight in my head and found myself wanting to make a phone call or put on...heaven forbid...the radio. The book started out good, but I found myself wondering how/if it would tie together, and in the end, wondered why all the little sub-stories. To make the book longer?
Absolutely not! Not from this author either. I'll be back.
In the first part...the shoplifting.
Hated the description of the coyote dying in the trap. Had to fast forward through the graphic description as found myself with tears in my eyes...not good while driving 60 mph on a country highway.
I am a true Sue Grafton/Judy Kaye fan! I hope Ms Grafton gets as much pleasure writing about Kinsey as we get listening to her "adventures". Am hoping the alphabet continues!! Ms Kaye puts so much life to Kinsey! The allready wonderful tale is only made better with her narration!
Being an avid fan of the Kinsey Milhone Alphabet Series, I think this one is one of the top 3. A very good story with intricate story lines. I couldn???t stop listening! Judy Kaye is as usual an excellent ???actor???. I downloaded the book when first available and planned to listen to one or two chapters or so a week. Didn't happen!
It is the first audiobook that I have ever listened to, but now I am hooked.
Sue Grafton's alphabet series is so enjoyable. I always am looking forward to the next letter. I truly enjoyed the plots and subplots in V is for Vengeance.
I have not listened to Judy Kaye before, but she did an excellent job with the different characters and plot.
Typical Grafton and Kinsey. An easy listen...though not too deep or mysterious. Can't believe I have been reading this series since high school and will be sad when it is over.
I have preferred listening to Sue Grafton books for many years due the great reader. She really understands Kensey Millhouse. Her reading style is relaxed and humorous.
The plot did keep me on the edge of my seat. I cant understand how Sue Grafton can write so many books and stay so fresh.
Her tone and paced reading
mostly laugh, however, there were tears in my eyes during a few scenes
It was a great book.
Yes, indeed. Kinsey is a favorite; excellent story and characters... always want a Quarter Pounder when I finish a Grafton book.
Plot was excellent with excitement, surprises, suspense, and one brave, daring and funny heroine. My kind of book.
All of them.. Grafton is a steady writer, sustaining the story and listener's interest. And the miles just fly by on those long road trips.
Grafton doesn't 'move' me; she delights me!
I hate for Grafton to be so close to the end of the alphabet. Numbers next?
Sue Grafton still manages to make me smile with her continuing Kinsey Millhone Saga. I've grown accustomed to the stories and the characters. That doesn't mean 'bored' just like a comfortable shoe that has been down the same path a couple of dozen, or 22, times. I know where we are going and I'm enjoying the trip and it's not such a long trip that my feet get tired before making it to the end.I love Judy Kaye as well, she is to me
The Narrator, Judy Kaye
Judy Kaye does a fantastic job with all the parts.
This is time well spent with fictional friends!
