Avid reader! Want fast paced, energetic thrillers. King/Koontz are favorites but finding more authors that are starting to rise to the top
Good mystery! It kept my interest because I wanted to know and was determined to find out what the lists had in common. Tempo was good although sometimes sketchy.- he went into detail on some things (clothes etc) that I didn't feel added to the story but it wasn't boring. Characters were cloned from great men (and women) from history but don't really seem amazed at that. You mean no one has ever told you you look just exactly like Jack the Ripper or Joan of Arc before? This realization doesn't seem to shock any of them. Action is good and dialog is good and believable . Narator is vey engaging keeping charaters true througout the book.
This is a good read. I would definetely recommend.
The narrator does a pretty good job with the different characters and the story is interesting. It isn't nearly enough sci-fi for me though. This is primarily a murder-mystery/ crime drama. And it was too bloody and filled with fear for me to listen to. I got through almost all if it until I realized that the fear of the characters was permeating my own psyche. And picturing the bloody scenes was too much for my sensitive right-brain. I don't normally read or watch tv shows like this. If you like this kind of thing, then by all means enjoy the book! It's just not for me personally.
This book had it all : action, adventure, intrigue and just a hint of romance. The story was fast paced from the first chapter and didn't let up. Konrath really keeps you guessing. This was a fun read and I had trouble putting it down because I needed to know how things were going to play out.
This was my first Konrath novel and I will definitely being checking out more of his work!
A different reader is needed. He had a creepy voice which was good for the
The story was not not well developed. it seem to drag on looking for its path to the end. Once I arrived at the end of the story I was confused by how it got wrapped up the way it did. Its not a surprising
Some of the graphic violence wasn't needed. I would tone down the details a bit and let the listener imagine the scene.
The book's description is too vague and you don't really know the
No, seldom relisten/reread books, too many I want to read to repeat. But I have recommended it to others
Yes, kept my curiousity up.
Thought the book was very interesting with good imagination.
Say something about yourself!
I had to stop this one. Couldn't go on. Starts out okay, but then the plot becomes just too idiotic. Also, there was a heavy emphasis on developing the homosexual male characters to the exclusion of the others. It stopped being about the plot and became one of the author's agenda. If I'd wanted a book about homo eroticism I'd have asked for it. The narrator was doing his best to feminize the characters. Just got to be disgusting.
Besides this the plot, although it starts out well enough, becomes so farcical it was hard not to laugh.
